YEP... that's what I'm gunna do today!

No shopping as such, just looking .... for an Outdoor Table and chairs.. ... I have a good idea what we want and can afford... so it's really exciting! I'm going to look around at what's available here... and hopefully next weekend we can go buy it.

- kids to school ( 5 days till end of term holidays)
- do the housework
- go window shopping ( a novelty for me!)

I much prefer to just 'go shopping' but this time I have to wait... what a drag.

Oh and once I'm outta bed I will post a photo or two of yesterday's birthday party. So, in saying that... better get outta bed eh? Can't do much from here....

Our 'Chef' for the day.... ANDREW.... gotta love the apron!

Playing in the back yard...

Brylee and Amanda playing 'Twister'... with Kelly helping Brylee...

The Birthday Boy, Joel, opening his presents.

CONTRARY to popular opinion... I did not buy anything... unless you count a few groceries? LOL

Home again, and lovin it... kids at school, got the whole house to myself... no mess, no noise...BLISS.....

OK, now I have to take it all back.... I went out again, and bought an Outdoor table and 8 chairs. I am IMPOSSIBLE, I know! I got them ON SALE, $600 off!!! And brand new I might add.... not even last year's stock.... ahhhh BARGIN. WOOO HOOO, a successful day.

ABOVE: The table and chairs, now I suppose I shall look around for squabs for the chairs... but I'm in no hurry! I have seen a few around, but don't like any of them. Some will turn up ... I want bright and colourful, preferably in blues.... of course!

End of Day: another lovely day! Stew's sister came for dinner so that was nice. We usually only see her once a year or so, now that we live here we can see her much more often.

NSV: lovely salad for dinner, and summer is coming! nite nite.
