Well... we want to go to Rotorua today, but it's going to depend on the weather.
If it clears up after all day rain/drizzle yesterday, we will go.
I would love to try swimming in the Blue Lake!
And I'm sure the kids will love it too.
If we do decide to head off for the day, we will have to either pick Brylee up from her girlfriend's, or leave her there for the day. Hmmm.... time will tell on that one.
So... that's our plan for today.
Thanks for the heads up Kate, we will try for tomorrow instead.
So, I shall go into Hamilton and see if the Arts Shop is open. I would like to find the right sealer for the tiles. I now have 15 to seal!
Last night I had three disasters in a row with one tile. I got really crabby and stayed up till I had it 'right'. It's not as easy as it looks I can tell ya!
Keera has been a real trial at night lately.
We put her to bed, and within an hour or so she's up and crying out for us. And she doesn't stop even when we go in and see her.
I was getting so damn angry! She is totally settled in now, there is NO reason for her to be crying like a banshee!
So, I decided last night we would simply ignore her and not go in to her.
And guess what? She stood at her door and cried and screamed, called out for Grandma and Granddad, and we did NOTHING.
That little bugger put herself back to bed and went to sleep! Attention seeking behaviour if ever I saw it.
Same thing will happen tonight I'm sure, and the next, till she realises she isn't going to be pandered to any more.
Oh the joys of kids.
12. 33 pm: Been to town, got some art supplies from The Art Store, and Spotlight AND The Warehouse Stationary. Grabbed some groceries and came home.
Having lunch. Ewww, Stew is having mussell sandwiches. I think I'll give that a miss.
I've decided to make a pavlova today. I've not made one in years, and the store bought ones are just NOT the same as a home made one.
But right now, I'm gunna spray varnish on the first few finished tiles... just the ones that have been dry for over 5 days. If you spray them too soon, the ink runs again. That's a bloody disaster... I've tried it! *smiles* 😂💩
THE. PAVLOVA. IS. IN. THE. OVEN. I did it! I baked.
ABOVE: It worked! And was delicious too. Fresh peaches on the top ... yum yum.
I'm now watching Legally Blonde... chick flicks rock.
