There were probably many, many times this year when I may have.....

Disturbed You,

Troubled You,

Pestered You,

Irritated You,

Bugged You,

or got on your Nerves!!

So today, I just wanted to tell you....

Suck it up Cupcake!

Cause there  AIN’T NO CHANGES  Planned for 2011!
That was an email Stew sent me yesterday... really funny... and it does look like Coco a bit.

Today:  oh I hope I can pretty much relax!  I am tired of the rush and bother.... though I do really want to make two pillowslips to match the Star Quilt... maybe I will do that today? 

Or if it's really hot I might just get the sprinkler out and let the kids play under it... I might even get under it myself. 


The kids and I ended up going to the mall to meet up with Stew and Jackie (my BESTEST  FRIEND  she loves it when I call her that! lol) .. Jackie and her hubby and son Joel are going to Perth for 3 weeks and can hand deliver a Christmas Parcel to our son Russell... so that is great!  Ended up buying Stew his Christmas present while there, some new dress 'boots' for work... look like shoes but are a short boot.  He loves them. Yaaaa.

The 'usual' 12 minute trip home from the mall took just over an hour... the motorway is totally deadlocked with holiday-makers trying to leave the 'Big Smoke' (slang for AUCKLAND).  *sigh*

So glad to be home...

GAYLE:  Yes, it is definitely summer here now!  Whatever season you are having, we are the opposite.  Has sommit to do with us living on the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD eh?   ha ha ha!

End of Day:  and I finally got around to visiting some blogs.... feel so much better about that.  I hate getting behind.  Going to just chill out now until the kids are asleep, then 'Santa' will put the presents under the tree and go to bed.  lol
nite nite.
