Remember me saying I'd bought a new fan... with a remote control?  Well it went for about a week, then it didn't work at all!

So yesterday I took it back and got a replacement.

 ABOVE:  Stew had to put it together last night... fingers crossed it doesn't break down too.

On to FOUND.   I bought a couple of things while in Palmerston North, and put them in my sewing room when we got home, and then totally forgot about them!

I was in the sewing room yesterday afternoon, hunting for my Weight Watcher slippers... and I came across the box. 

ABOVE: Stew and I both liked this vase, so got it.   It's years since I bought a new vase.  Isn't it pretty?

ABOVE:  I fell in love with these coffee mugs... they are just gorgeous.

ABOVE:  Don't ya just love the box?  LOL
It's the new umbrella for the BBQ table.  I am sure it will get out of it's box at some point over the coming weekend.  It's amazing!  It tilts, so you can set it up to block out the sun no matter where it is!

I am going to LOVE it come summer dinners out on the patio.

This morning, once Keera is at Kindy and Griffin is at school, I am going to Aqua exercise class at the pool.  Brylee is coming along to have a swim too.

After that, I have a few things on my 'to do' list to get through.

OH... Weight Watchers!  According to their repaired scales (they have been away getting fixed for 2 weeks), I gained .200 grams this week.  According to MY scales, which I will go by, I lost .500 grams this week.

I will go by 'their' scales again next week.


10.35 am:  And we are back from the pool.
I almost didn't go as I was feeling really ikkk, but I'm glad I did go now.
I'm buggered!  But happy.

Brylee had a nice time, she wants to go every day now!
We will go again on Thursday all going well.

I took a photo of the pool... will upload it later to show you. I did two lengths of the pool (swimming) after Aqua too.

Now... it's time for a shower before getting some washing on, then going into town (Cambridge) to do a few things.

 ABOVE:  This is the Cambridge public pool.  There were 26 of us at Aqua this morning... and our instructor was a cheeky Maori man in his mid 50's.  I really enjoyed his class.

ABOVE:  The other day I got that super cute little silver and blue dish, I thought it would be nice for putting used teaspoons in.

And I forgot to show you the drone we got Griffin for his birthday too!

ABOVE:  It's been too windy in the past few days for him to use it outside.  It's got a camera but he hasn't used it yet.

Time to relax!

10.46 pm:  And awesome evening!  We did something tonight that we hadn't done in 0VER 17 years!
Tell ya what it was tomorrow.


  1. ANY loss is a great loss! Good for you! :)

  2. Is the pool heated chris? Good on you for getting out and about. Cambridge was a GREAT decision :)

    1. Yes the pool is par-heated... and they put a cover on overnight so it's not too cool first thing in the morning. It's just a perfect temperature really.
