When my Mum left New Zealand to live in Australia with Ron, she brought all her photos and a few other bits 'n' bobs over to my house for storing.

Until she could 'go through it all'... she's been in Australia for 7-8 years now, and hasn't done that yet.

I have taken most of her 'stuff' down from the attic so it is easily accessed, so when she comes back in 5 weeks or so maybe she can take a look through it all?

Today:  I have Hospice Duty.  I am going to be GOOD today.  I simply CAN'T  buy a thing today!
If there is something I just have to own, it will be staying there until next week!

I am seriously thinking of cutting back to just one day a week as I'm finding twice a week a real tie... and EXPENSIVE.  *smiles*

I will just see how it goes though, as I do enjoy being there.  Too much sometimes.

Right, usual drill... off to make lunches then tottle off to Hospice.  Catch ya all later.


MARY H:  ha ha, have you not heard of 'put it on hold for next week'?  That's what I did with two cushions for Lacy today.
AND I bought a couple of items of clothes for the kids today.  I didn't go nuts though, there were several things that took me eye today, but I did leave them there.

It was BITTERLY COLD in the shop today, I couldn't wait to get home and warm up again.
Hence this is a late update ... the kids are due home shortly, so there ends me quiet time.

I'm defrosting two chooks for dinner.  But for now... I'm gunna go downstairs and do a wee bit of sewing...

I'm feeling cautiously excited.  I MIGHT be able to get my hands on my new camera SOON!

End of Day:  tired.  Tossing up some options for me new camera, get it now... or wait till December?  I so want it NOW... but my head is saying wait and pay cash for it.  I will sleep on it I think.
