Last night we got a visit from Bex's eldest brother Josh.
He and his friend had flown up from Invercargill to collect Josh's wife's new car. It is a Chrysler Stationwagon... and it has all the bells and whistles!
Amazing car, I got to sit in it. OMG it's my dream car.
ABOVE: BYE BYE dream car! I hope they get home safely, they have to travel for almost 24 hours to get home, on some of the worst roads in the middle of winter. It's snowing in lots of areas now too.
I got Josh to hold Dante for the obligatory photo.
ABOVE: first eyeball to eyeball... Dante immediately sussed his uncle out with the stare...
ABOVE: then he kinda did the "I ain't gunna look at you again!"... before starting to bawl! I mean... it only took about 15 seconds!
ABOVE: full scream mode. Josh wasn't fazed at all... he's got a couple of kids himself.
Oh and the wet patch? Dribble... lots and lots of dribble.
Oh... just have to say this: Josh had just picked up that bloody expensive car, and what did he do?
He only came inside for over an hour and left the KEYS in the BLOODY EXPENSIVE CAR!!!
In South Auckland no less ! ! !
Mad man. *shaking head*
So anyway, it was really lovely to catch up with Josh, and also meet his mate Erwin too.
Nice Invercargill guys.
ABOVE: a cute photo of Dante and Griffin.

Today? Not sure. I might actually do some sewing... if I can get the gas heater to go down in my garage.
It's just a little COLD down there now... and no amount of hot flushes will change that!
FRIDAYS from now on are going to be like this:
- kids to school
- do 1 hour of housework
- do I hour of blog reading/commenting
- do 1 hour of housework
and so on. So far today I have done 1 hr of housework and 1 hr of blogging. Now I am about to start the next hr of housework.
OMG they are filthy!
Off to do them all right now... there's only 24 in the house from memory.
YOU SHOULD NEVER START A CONVERSATION WITH ME LIKE THIS:
"Please don't kill me !".....
Then proceed to tell me that you washed one of my dresses with a baby's flannelet sheet, and now the dress is COVERED in fluff!!!
So, I didn't kill her. I just said that's fine, YOU can now get all the fluff off it!
She was pissing herself thinking I would be angry at her, because just YESTERDAY I pointed out how she was ruining some of Dante's jumpers by washing them with TOWELS.
Oh well... I reckon she has learnt THAT particular lesson now. *BIG SMILES*
First time in quite a few days I've felt happy!
I got so much housework done today, and the washing is up to date despite the weather being nuts.
AND... I got the first girl cut out and fused onto the background fabric this afternoon too:
ABOVE: GIRL A. I can already see that the actual stitching is going to take me a very long time!
But, I will be happy cos I will be doing something I love.
End of Day: well... I got the other three ladies on the backing fabric, and now I want to add a dog, Steve say's add a crab, and a couple of sea gulls.
So we will see.
But for now, I'm tired and am going to sit and watch the telly with the family.
