Brylee and Griffin need winter clothes so that's what we are doing today.... kitting them out for the season.

We have lots of problems finding shoes for Brylee, she has a long thin foot.... but the other day we saw a shoe shop in Howick that caters to her type of foot, so that's first on the list.

Then Pumpkin Patch and JK for some clothes.
NOOOO... not that sort of Pumpkin Patch... this sort:
It's a really fantastic LOCALLY GROWN kids clothing store.
And I'm still looking for a ring! I have wanted a blue sapphire for YONKS.... and maybe ... just maybe I will get one?

7 HOURS!!!! We have been shopping for 7 hours... we did managed to kit the kids out with new clothes and shoes.... for the rest of the time we were looking for shoes for Stew.... looking... looking.... looking EVERYWHERE... no luck.
*sigh* we are now knackered!
Off to Lonestar for dinner, there is no way I'm cooking! I've been on me feet all day.
LYNISE... YES I would be interested in that offer! Totally. Will give you a phone call later on.
End of Day: eeeek, ate too much... and now feeling like puking! Nice one. But... dinner was just gorgeous.. I had pork... sooooo yum. No pudding. No alcohol. So I score points there.
nite nite.


  1. I thought you just recently well in the last year or two got a lovely pink ring??? Am sure it was you, but then again maybe it was someone else lol... I dont know how you can enjoy shopping, today I have to get a gift basket organised and not looking forward to it...

  2. I dunno, the first pic of the pumpkin patch was cuter. Interesting little harvest there. :]

    Happy shopping!

  7. Those pics are super cute. Glad you got the kds kitted out. I have sapphires on my right hand. 3 gorgeous rings. I think it's best to find someone to make something you want. Even more special.

  8. Omg Chris i have been without a computer for a few days, can't believe you nearly stopped blogging, yeah for Amanda and Stu I say!! I read your blog every morning while having me cuppa and then through out the day, I will stop lurking and comment more often, cause don't know how I would cope with out my Chris fix, I just love your sense of humour!!!
