I forgot to get this out of the car yesterday, so Stew got it for me late last night.
I bought it at the Hospice shop yesterday.

I plan on tarting it up and using it in me sewing 'room'... instead of Bex sitting on a dining room chair.  And I can use it to climb up and get stuff down that's on top of the storage units in the garage.

When Stew got it out of the car for me, he came up the stairs with it and said:  "What the hell? What's it for?"

So I explained... and he said?

"YES DEAR".  Bloody man is always saying that to me.

My name is 'DEAR' if anyone's asking.

Now.. I'll show you what I bought:

ABOVE: It's covered in that hideous green, fake leather.  But I'm gunna have some fun re-covering it for sure.

It will look lovely once I'm finished with it.  I hope.

What else can I blither on about today?

Took these of our 'live in grandbaby' last night:

ABOVE: now that he can roll from his back to his tummy, he does it ALL. THE. TIME.  
Now, this wouldn't be a problem,  but for one thing.
He hates being on his tummy.  So we are having to roll him off his tummy when he gets grizzly.  Then... as you may have already guessed... the little darling immediately goes and rolls over again.  *sigh*

It will be GREAT when he figures out how to roll from his tummy to his back, that's for sure.

I am going to Sylvia Park.  I saw a wall plaque thingee in a shop, and I want to take a photo and make something similar for myself.  Stuffed if I'm gunna pay $99 for something I can make for next to nothing!

I'll show ya later what I'm on about.


Been awake since 5am.  got to hear Stew turn his alarm off 5 TIMES before he finally got up!
So, I got up and started tidying my computer area... looking for a receipt ... can't find it.  
Been charged DOUBLE for an item we bought a while ago... hoping like hell the company realises THEIR mistake and credits the amount back!

It's looking to be a so-so day... showers.  At least I'm not cold this morning... been on the move too much to get cold.

Home from the mall.  Got/did everything I wanted to.
There was a 'display' in the mall... by Cadbury Chocolate... promoting their 'new' Dairy Milk and there was a competion on to guess how many chocolate blocks were in a car.
You could win a year's supply of chocolate.

I didn't enter.  

ABOVE:  It was a nice display though.

I also got some slippers, two colanders and 'LAUGH' for me wall.

ABOVE:  I couldn't resist the LAUGH... it's got bling on it.

We ran into Lynda at the mall too... so we had a chat until we had to come home for lunch.
Talking of lunch, I'm starving...

I had a baked potatoe with baked beans, bacon and onion for lunch.
Then I sat down and watched some telly while Bex and Lacy made dessert for tonight.

ABOVE:  Yes, it is a chocolate based dessert.  These two are idiots.

End of Day:  well... we had fish 'n' chips for dinner, followed by the girls cake.
Now... off to bed early for a change.  Really tired after waking up at 5 am.
nite nite


  1. Oooh that chair is going to look groovy - no matter what fabric you choose. I did the same with a foot stool when Paige was a baby or I was pregnant.

    Have a super day - long weekend ahead - yipppeeee!


  2. I'll be interested in seeing the "bench" when you're done with it, Dear.

  5. Nice to catch up Chris :)

  6. Love the bench and can't wait to see what you do to it! Am sure it will look fabulous no matter what! :)
    Hope Dante works out how to roll back on to his back soon :)

  7. They may be idiots but in that photo they both look very happy. It is nice to see.

  8. Oh dear (no pun intended) that choc mix and those two impy girls!!! lol hope ya'll have a nice long weekend.

  9. I want to go shopping with you at the Hospice shop; you are getting amazingly cool stuff there!

    And I hate to say it, but I would leave the green bench the way it is. But I like funky retro stuff so that's just me. Dang it, I want a Hospice shop here in Louisville!!!

  10. Looks like they were having fun with the chocolate haha!

    That bench will look cute with a new cover.

    Baby is going to be rolling all over soon!
