Answers to some questions

  • No, I didn't do the half-marathon yesterday. The weather was actually almost perfect - very cold, but no rain and only a gentle breeze. I went down and cheered on a couple of guys I knew who were doing the run, then raced home to watch the All Blacks game (truth be told, that may be the real reason I didn't do it; have to watch the games live).
  • Yes, my eyes are that blue. I don't wear coloured lenses.
  • Yes, I'm pretty sure you do still sweat while doing aqua kickboxing. I didn't go bright red in the face like I do with normal kickboxing, but I did have this somewhat repulsive clammy feeling while in the water - guessing that was sweat!
  • No, the imminent onset of the empty nest is not tempting me to have another child. Get over it people! I'm 41. I'm waiting for grandbabies.
  • Yes, I was expecting to be in Sydney this month. Not happening for all sorts of reasons. Vague discussions about November. You'll be the second to know.
  • Yes, you can touch the bottom in aqua kickboxing.
  • Yes, I was overweight for a long time. I am now the lightest I have been since before I had Jake, but was seriously overweight for 13 years.
  • No, this is not the thinnest Mark has ever seen me. We had a brief 'fling' when I was 20 and size 12. Didn't get together till six years later, when I was a solo Mum and about a size 16.

Anything else you'd like to know?

My god, I can't even imagine having a child now. I get seriously stressed when I hear about people my age having kids. I'm more than happy to wait for grandkids and hopefully then not for a long time.

Yes, next time you are in Auckland would you like to have coffee? :-) Lol.

Couldn't think of anything worse than a baby at 41! You can always hand grandkids back:)

I think it's great that you and Mark found each other again after 6 years... (I'll be 40 next year but still planning on another baby - eek, I know - I have rocks in my head!!)

Yes... what color nail polish are you wearing? LOL! (jk)

You and I can wait around to be grandma's together! I've been waiting for 8 years already ... but that makes sense ... cuz I'm 49! I can't believe somebody thought that you really MIGHT be interested in having another baby now.... ESPECIALLY after just having lost all that weight! ;)

um, no, no more questions right now :)

A baby? At 41? Um, NO. I would check you into a mental institution if you suggested anything of the sort. My dad reckons that if he's known how much fun grandchildren were going to be, he would have had them first...
