Shopping yestererday: we were told of this really 'great' women's clothing shop in Botany Downs called "Platform"... so went there, found 4 items I loved (all mix and match with what I already have) so got them... and FAR OUT..... I could have almost bought a small car with what they cost!!! Stew didn't even batt an eyelid, I'm sure he's gone mad! Or maybe he just wanted to get 'lucky' ? ha ha.

COFFEE BEAN! This is just for you! I found your cafe in Botany Downs (Auckland):

So if you ever come to visit you will feel right at home. Awwwwww.

TODAY: not sure yet... could get the gardens sorted and lawns mown if it stays fine... or we could go shopping again! Hell at this rate we will be totally broke!

I could also stay in bed, my cold is making me feel quite ill... might throw a sickie yet....act like a man even! *snigger*


We went to Manukau City Centre, got some summer shoes for moi, a computer desk and chair for his nibs (Griffin), and then came home.

I had a nap for a couple of hours (even slept!)... Stew watched the Cricket, assembled the computer desk for his nibs then mowed the lawns ... what a trooper.

Dinner : well I made that, so I did do SOMETHING today!

End of Day: nice day, nice weather, not too hot/cold.... saw the vehichle we are dreaming of buying next year in our street this afternoon... will show you tomorrow! nite nite.


  1. Yeah, I called the credit card company last night to see what the damage is. I've charged a helluva lot in the past few months. Woke up this morning with a stomachache. Ugh.

    Your new clothes are very pretty, and I hope you aren't really sick! Blessings to you!

  2. Martha Jean said woudl you please buy her a small car... as long as it is an automatic... and CB i am so thrilled Chris found your shop :)Hope you feel better :)
    hummmssss Sexual healing....

  3. How small a car? Like a toy car? :]

    Those are nice outfits!! You're going to look great in those.

  4. Im sure more shopping therapy will make you feel better!!!

  5. Cute new clothes! I hate shopping for clothes unless I'm down about 30 pounds lol.

  6. How funny to find that coffee cafe!
    the clothes look pretty. I'm a bargain hunter myself.

  7. Oh Platform!!! That is so expensive! We have one of those down here and I love looking but very rarely can I afford to buy anything! Your clothes look fantastic and can just imagine what sort of price you paid for them!
    Have a great day

    Awwwww!!! I LOVE it! I'm going to nab that picture! LOL!

    I sure hope you get over your little bug quickly!

    Love the clothes you found!

  9. Hope you feel better!

  10. Any man who does all of that in one day should get a little something don't you think?

  11. Of course Stew didn't complain about what the clothes cost - that's because he knows that you will look a million bucks in them and that's worth whatever they cost :-)

  12. Very nice purchases!Keep dreaming of your new car and it will be yours next yearx

  13. Love the new clothes and I'm glad you had a great day out.

  14. Love those dresses!!

    Hope you're feeling better.


  15. Were those clothes new or second hand? The clothes are nice, but are they worth the price tag? Ouch!

    I hate clothes shopping, blah :o/

    My daughter is just back from Aus [yes I know it's not the same!] Sorry to hear that 'summer' isn't really happening your end.

    I certainly envy your coffee outlet, I could do with a bit of that around here.
