Like yesterday, after I drop Keera at Kindy, I am taking my car to get something fixed.
This time it's the lower back bumper thingee.
The panel beaters had to wait for a part to arrived so they could finish the repair. That's getting done at 8.30 this morning.
Another hour where I have to kill time.
Thank god for 2048 on my phone! I 'play' that game whenever I am in a situation where I have to wait for something. My score so far? 37 MILLION +! Yep, I've been playing this particular game for about 4 months now.
It's quite amazing when you think that you have to build that number up by 2's and 4's!
After I pick Keera up at lunchtime, we are going to do the grocery shopping. I'm going to drag the big kids with me so they can help. No way am I going to do it all on me own if I don't have to.
So... I drop off the kid and get down to the panel beaters at 8.25 am.
They tell me it will take at least an hour to do the job, maybe longer. Would I like a lift home, and they will bring the car back when they have finished with it?
I said 'No, I will wait in the office', so they let me into the office to sit and wait.
I play 2048 some more.
And wouldn't you know it... the car is ready in 25 minutes! So much for taking over an hour. Do ya reckon me sitting in their office hurried them up? I reckon.
I get home, and spray varnish on the coaster sets I made yesterday. Hopefully by the end of the day I will have them finished, felt on the back and DONE.
I've been mucking around with my display tables. I think I've got them exactly how I want them, signs displayed in the right places and so on.
It's not just a 2 second job I tell ya!
ABOVE: Do they look alright? Kate and Tracy, I've just used your tiles for spacing ... I'm NOT selling them!
Well an excellent afternoon has been had.
Getting the kids to help with the shopping was such a good idea. We got around the supermarket and home again in 2 hours. Over $900 poorer! I told ya we had no food in the house!
It's a late dinner for us tonight as the kids and I didn't get lunch till 3.30. Keera has been fed though, she is a bottomless pit when it comes to food during the day. Not so good with veges at dinner time though. She loves her meat that kid!
I'm going to start making meatloaf with HEAPS of veges in it... just like I have done in the past for other kids who won't eat their veges. Smother it in tomato sauce and they don't know the difference.
Looking forward to a fairly quiet evening.
