PIDDLE PIDDLE PIDDLE!

Much to my surprise, I am managing to drink 3 glasses of water easily!
It's chilled water from the fridge, then carbonated in the Soda Stream.  Then I add some slices of lemon that Stew cut up and froze.

So, it's quite nice really!  Only thing I'm not really enjoying is the amount of times I  have to go piddle!

Seriously!  Middle of the night, crack of dawn, then every 2-3 hours during the day!  Is that NORMAL?

Not for me that's for sure.

I thought today I might do some sewing, I want to make a few mug rugs, then table runners.  I've got quite a few of the 'Fat Bottomed Girls' fabric cut out already, so will run up a few of those first.

And that is about all I have for now!  If I can get the house spic 'n' span I might even do a 'walk through' video of the house to show you our home, instead of photos here and there.

Oh and here's a clue to my 2nd New Year's Resolution:


ABOVE:  Any guesses?  And NO one from the family 'in the know' is allowed to say a word!
Well actually, ya can't spill the beans cos your comments won't get through.  lol

ONWARD...

PETA: I deleted the comment you left yesterday. I hope that was the one you were referring to as I haven't seen another one come through?

I just took the video walk through of our house.  It will take a while to upload... once it's done I will post it on here.

We've been out to Mitre 10 today.  ALL the door handles in this house need to be replaced.
The builders on this house made a stupid mistake when making the holes for the door handles... they made them too big!  So the handles keep moving up and down on the door itself, and the bit that actually latches the door to the framework jams.

So our job this year is to slowly replace all of them.  We have already done 2, and today we will do 2 more.

Just as soon as Stew gets off his lounge chair...


ABOVE:  So Stew just said not only were the door handles fitted into too big holes in the door, but they had also been attached wrongly too.  It took him ages to get that bloody door handle off!  

But he did it eventually... only 6 to go now.

New Year's Resolution # 1: Drink water
New Year's Resolution # 2:  Has nothing to do with my finger nails!

Another guess:
You're going into puppetry? 
(I couldn't post this as a comment) 
Belinda :)


ABOVE:  Love ya thinking, but no... I'm not going into Puppetry Belinda!

Stew is being a busy boy today, he's in the garage...


ABOVE:  Sorting nuts, bolts, screws, nails and all small bits 'n' bobs into these boxes.
They used to be my cotton boxes, but now I have the thread holder on the wall... I didn't need them.
He's putting them to good use.

Do you want to know what #2 is today, or wait till January the 1st?  I'm leaning towards January the 1st... cos it's a New Year's Resolution after all.  *smiles*

I will give you another clue tomorrow.

OK, I finally have the 'House Walk Through' video uploaded and ready to publish here:




Is the video blurry part way through for you?  Cross if it is... cos it isn't on YouTube.

Well... the video came right eventually... computer glitch on my end I think.

I've got a chicken roasting in the oven for dinner, served with roast potatoes, onions and a lettuce salad.  Should be yum.

7.45 pm:  And yes, dinner was YUM!  
Sorry, no one is anywhere NEAR guessing correctly.  So, I'm going to put you out of your misery tomorrow.
So... until then, I shall be in my sewing room, doing a bit of sewing before Coronation Street comes on.
Then bedtime.

Catch ya tomorrow.

    Yes it sounds like your normal at weeing now lol.. Hopefully once your body adjusts you might not need to go through the night.. Only some nights

  3. To the water thing - yes! Normal. When I first started drinking more water I was peeing all the damn time. After a while though I think your body must adjust because I'm not running to the bathroom all the time anymore but my water intake is still high!

    1. Ha ha! That would be fairly easy as I virtually never drink alcohol anyway, but NAH, it's not that.

  13. That's the hand motion for "planking." We're going to see lots of photos of you planking next year. Ok, there's my crazy guess.

    Love the craft room so organised ..

    My guess would be a part time job for a real estate showing features of the homes they have listed .. The hands doing the computer work???

    1. No the walk through wasn't a clue. I'd love to work in Real Estate... but it's not my 2nd NY's Resolution.

  15. I think it will be to get back to hospice or similar? Now that you don't have a little one in the house you might be free to "give a hand"?

    1. Good guess, but no. If anything I might look for an actual JOB next year... but it's not my 2nd NY's Resolution.

    Love the house tour! My bedroom is the same as yours how you walk pat the walk in robe and ensuite before you get to the actual bedroom. It separates us nicely from the grown up kids as well 😊 We have big glass doors to the back yard as well. Very jealous of your kitchen .... especially that island bench! Michelle from Oz.

    Your home is lovely Chris! Being that it is bitterly cold here, it was nice to hear the birds singing through the open windows. Whatever your New Years Resolution is, I wish you much success in keeping the resolution!
