Taking the little wins as they come.  
I had my car window repaired last week, and they didn't charge me a cent - they reckoned the car was still under warranty. I pointed out that it is a November 2007 build, first registered in May 2008, and by my reckoning the warranty expired last year, but according to their records I bought it as an ex-demonstrator, and the warranty period didn't start running until the day I bought it. I won't argue with that... although I thought it was an ex-hire car when I bought it. Whatever - free window fix!

As mentioned earlier I had to walk to the bus stop until I got it fixed. It's only 1.5kms but it's so easy to get in the car and drive down that I've never really worried about walking it - but now I'm hooked, I enjoy the walk so much that I've kept it up. And I know it's doing some good, even if it's only a little; last Friday was the first day that I arrived back home without feeling tired in the slightest. For someone who does no other exercise at all, that's a bit of a win too.

Friday was my son's girlfriend's birthday and we all went out to lunch on Saturday to celebrate at a restaurant of her choice. They've adopted a paleo diet recently and the restaurant they chose reflected that (aptly-named "The Paleo Cafe"). My lunch was delicious! I chose coconut and lemongrass poached chicken with cauliflower rice and a side dish of kumera chips and lemon aioli. Yum.

I must start doing the same as you and posting more updates that are shorter-than-essays. I shall look forward to hearing the conclusions!

Sweet potatoes, yummy! Thanks.

I always MEAN to post more regularly, but then life gets in the way, or nothing much happens... in a way, that 30 Days of Blogging challenge was brilliant because it drove me to find something, however banal *g*. But most importantly it meant a full flist! Which was wonderful.
