I'm sleeping in... so this is a 'forward' post.

I'll get back on here when I get up. 
Catch ya later...


When I wake up, we are going to a place I found on Facebook last night.  It's on the North Shore and it's called 'Junk & Disorderly'.
It's a junk shop/2nd hand shop, I think it's got  new stuff too...

 ABOVE: photos off their facebook page.  It looks like somewhere I could go nuts!  See that red/gold carpet in the last photo?
We had that exact carpet in our 2nd home in Hamilton.   It was WONDERFUL for hiding lots of 'accidents' with kids/food/crayons and so on!
I'd never have it again though, it's kinda dated now... like really dated!  *smiles*

Right... catch ya later...


So... the new shop I found was... OK.  But just OK.  There were two things in the shop I was interested in, but both, while being on the shop 'floor', were not yet for sale.  I was a bit bummed about that.
Then I also thought their pricing was SKY HIGH for most items, so we left empty handed.  
I doubt I shall be going back.

After that disappointment, we dropped into Victoria Park Market ... to find the place virtually deserted.

It's closing down as a Market place, it simply has not picked up since being revamped.  That's sad.

The shop we really liked there was still open, so I finally got that awesome pitcher that caught my eye last time:

ABOVE:  isn't it funky as?  

ABOVE: I've put some flowers in it for now, but I'm not sure they will stay in it... cos ya can't actually see the funky top!

I also got these from another shop there that was having a stock clearance sale, 50% off everything:
ABOVE:  I've got plans for this lot (gifts).

After the market, we went for lunch in Mission Bay.  We ended up at Burger Fuel... OMG what amazing burgers they have.  I shall have to starve now so I don't record a GAIN on Wednesday!

Home now and going to have a quiet afternoon, might even sleep off that burger.

No new baby in this house YET...

End of Day:  well an interesting afternoon here... lots of jobs got done.  Love that.
nite nite
