I have an uncertain day ahead of me.
I might just be staying home.
Or I might be going to Hamilton... it all depends on if Stew can take half the day off work to be home with the kids.
I won't know until he's gone to work and checked his appointments. Fingers crossed... cos if I can go to Hamilton I will be thrilled to bits.
I can't say WHY I might be going to Hamilton... except it's to see someone. LOL

Now for my latest 'treasures' from the Hospice Shop:

ABOVE: I am gathering a lot of Booties! There better be lots more Grand babies in my future me thinks! I got three more pairs yesterday.

ABOVE: This freaking cute wee glass bowl... I have NO USE FOR IT... but I just had to buy it! 5o cents.. it was hardly going to bankrupt me!

ABOVE: A Hangman Game... I thought the kids would love playing this, and what an excuse to practise their spelling!

ABOVE: this gorgeous hand crocheted shawl ( $2 !), which looks so lovely over the back of this couch in the lounge. ... shaking my head, such a bargain.

ABOVE: OK.... so I didn't get him at the Hospice Shop (I picked him up at the Whitianga Rugby Club... ha ha ha!).. but he's my BIGGEST Treasure... I adore him.

ONWARD... let's see what the day brings....

Yaaa.. I am going to Hamilton. Stew is coming home at lunchtime so I can go!

I'm taking some of my cards with me too... to try and find a shop in Hamilton to stock them.. fingers crossed!

I'm home again! Saw the 'someone'... which was lovely. Then I stopped in at a shop I would love to have my cards in... but the owner wasn't in so I have to make an appointment to see her. Will do that tomorrow.

It has rained almost non-stop today... talk about depressing! But... I'm quite happy again... some days I just have a really 'BLAH' day... I'm sure lots of people do eh?

My niece in Australia rang me too.. and she managed to make me cry a few times ... the TART! But her call cheered me up actually!

Wonder what Stew has on for dinner? Must go see....

End of Day: and I'm tired. Not sleeping well at night... getting a few hot flushes again... might have to visit me Dr again soon I think. Not enough hours in the day... am not reading blogs at the moment... just too busy! sorry. nite nite.

  5. Aww thats so sweet!

  6. You just can't resist a bargain can you!! (and I can't talk as neither can I although mine is usually clothes, shoes or bags). Hope your plans for today work out. Zxx

  9. You could always send some of those booties *this* way! ;-)

  10. Just kidding Chris, but thanks!... I'm sure they'll come in very handy for your future grandbabies! xxx

  11. Have fun in Hamilton x

  12. How sweet you are, Chris! That is a great photo of Stew. And have fun with the "mystery" visit. I see absolutely no reason why that shop in Hamilton wouldn't want to stock your cards....they are fabulous! Good luck!



  13. hope you're feeling happier! you're not alone, i feel blah too some days and it's been a bit more often lately with my job status being all over the place and having gained a few kgs but hey, i'm still blessed and know enough to appreciate what i do have! thank God!!!

    take care

  14. My MIL has a similar hand crocheted thingy which she uses to cover her piano which no one plays.

  15. Glad to hear your plans worked out and you had a good day away.

  16. A good man is worth any price . . .

    Glad that you and Stew found each other!

  17. I have to agree with Trisha about a good man! and being glad you two found each other.

    To me -that is one of the greatest gifts that a man can have - is to treat his wife and kids with love.Sounds like Stew wins on all the awards.

    You are right - that we all have those "bla" days. I call them my "unbalanced " days because that is what they feel like to me.

  18. You find the best bargains!

  19. love the shawl!hopefully coco doesnt like it lol
