After dropping the kids at school, I'm popping into the local Council to get the rules and regulations on car ports/pergolas and so on.

We are still in the planning stages of getting one or the other out the front of our house to cover the cars.

Then I will be coming home to do some housework... and I'll no doubt fluff around the house doing bits 'n' bobs for the rest of the morning.

I have Weight Watchers this evening, I go to the local meeting, but weigh in on Friday in Hamilton.  I don't want to lose touch with all the lovely ladies I've met here.

Then straight after the WW meeting I have a walk to go to.
Again, it's in a SLOW group... as I'm still building back up after being sick for a while.

It's weird, but I almost never actually FEEL like going on a walk, but once I'm doing it, and afterwards, I feel GREAT!  Powerful things endorphins!

So that's pretty much my day in a few brief paragraphs.

What are YOU DOING?  Anything really interesting?  It's gotta be more so than mine surely?



10 am and I can already say it's been a good morning.
I went into the Council and made an appointment to see the Town Planner first thing tomorrow morning.
Then I got home and decided to re-arrange Griffin's room.  It was doing my head in with no wriggle room anywhere.

Now, it's looking much better, and there's ROOM to move in there.  

It also gave me an opportunity to tidy it up.
That boy has masses of wardrobe room/drawer room and shelving unit room, YET HE LEAVES SHIT ALL OVER THE BLOODY FLOOR STILL!

I'm gunna start fining him, $1 a day for leaving shit all over the floor!  There's just no excuse for it at all.  Grrrrrr. 

I'm really happy now... I can relax for a little while... jobs done.  Well... I do have to hang some washing in the garage, but that's all. 

Ever wanted to KILL A COMPUTER?  I have been going mental trying to get my laptop, down in my bedroom, to load and print some photos.
In the end I gave up and got Brylee to drag the PC back into my room so I could use it instead.

I am so, so angry right now!  I HATE that bloody laptop!  If I ever see the message: 'Google Not Responding' again, I will throw it out the window.  Well... after I get all my photos off it of course!  I mean, it kept saying 'Not Responding' for over half an hour!  Kill it I say.

I think I need to bring the printer down to the lounge... that will avoid that problem again.

I've got to get dinner ready soon, then take off to WW's, then on to my walk.  Busy, busy.

WW's meeting was good.  Then my walk got cancelled as it is raining.  Cross, but nothing I can do about it.  Obviously some people melt in the rain.

So, home and I'm baking an apple and tamarillo pie... cos I can, and I'm now crabby.

So proud of you and your walking. I wish there was a group here in Onehunga... I am very lazy and need a boost from others.


    1. "horrible work things happening"... that doesn't sound good mate! I hope it's not as bad as you seem to expect. {{{HUGS}}}

  7. I know how you feel about the computer. I have a tv in the kitchen & for some reason it has decided to not play tv3 at all and intermittently play other channels and tonight was the last straw - the bloody thing nearly had a pumpkin thrown at it. Possibly PMS possibly just husband, kids & cat annoying the shite out of me the second I walked in the door 😠 Biding my time til wine as I only have a bit left & am tempted to scull the whole lot. And that is my rant, thank you for "listening" lol 😂

    1. First, that would be the best way to use a pumpkin! Horrid things pumpkins.
      PMS and family... yep all can drive you mental. And I hope you did skull the lot... rants are good for the soul.
