Well today we are going to go out and see a movie, not sure what yet.

It's just a day to relax and enjoy ourselves.  No stress today!

We should get our loan documents via email sometime today, which we will promptly sign and send off so the finances are 'in place' for next week's Auction.

ABOVE:  So... we are going to see this movie.  It's a kiwi movie, had very good reviews etc.  
Hope it's good.

Didn't have a good night's sleep, was coughing from 1 am till 3 am, then throwing up at 3 am too.  Ikkkk.  I thought my cough was getting better, but NO.  *sigh*

I hope I don't cough and drive the punters mad at the movies. 

3.00 pm:  and the movie was neat!  I did not expect it to be so good.  If you get the chance, go see it.  It's got some good, honest kiwi humour.  And excellent acting.  

We had planned to have lunch at the mall, but none of us was that hungry after movie lollies/drinks etc.

Stew got some buns and a cooked chook... so I might have some of that soon.

OK... we are all tired and ready for bed... so well... nite nite!


  1. Oh my, houseselling and buying is so stressful, I remember it well. I am hoping not to have to go through it again, but you never know what's in store for you. So enjoy your day and enjoy the movie! I hear Eye in the sky is pretty exciting, I'm going to see that next week.

  2. Did you decide to not put an offer in beforehand?

    1. Correct. By the time we get the bank documents and sign them, it would be too late to bring the Auction forward, so just going with the flow.

  3. Nice to see you get a break. So sorry about the cough - that really wears you out.

  4. I just read this and thought of you.
    3. Gargle Salt Water

    Also a popular remedy for sore throats, salt water can ease the discomfort caused by a cough the same way it helps a sore throat-through osmosis. When the concentration of salt is higher outside of the cells in your mucous membranes, water flows out of the cells to balance everything out. When water leaves the cells, swelling goes down, and discomfort is decreased. If you have a cough that happens to come along with inflamed tissue, this is a good route to take. It can also help dislodge any phlegm that’s hanging out and allow you to expel it easily.

    You will need…

    -1 teaspoon of salt
    -8 ounces of warm water


    Stir salt into water until it is thoroughly dissolved. Gargle for 15 seconds, spit, and repeat with the remaining water. Rinse with plain water afterwards.

  5. Another study suggested 4 tsp. honey to a cup of coffee. They said it sounded weird but really worked for some folks.

  6. I know , I'll quit with this one -but there are several good suggestions here.

  7. Great movie huh? We loved it!

  8. I am hoping to see the movie soon I just love Taika Waititi movies asense of humor he is a Kiwi for sure... I have been battling sore throat and niggly cough but have been chucking Vit C loads 2000mg per day and drinking hot lemon honey and salt gargling just keeping on top of it...
