First up for today... 

I will be sewing.

Then after lunch I have to go into Hamilton for my 2 yearly mammogram.  I'm NOT looking forward to that I can assure you.  I tried to get out of it, but the buggers rang me and reminded me ever so nicely that it was a good idea to get it done.

*sigh*.  At least this time I know where to go/park etc.  

After that I need to get more chlorine for the pool before coming home again.

I've organised an FBG walk for this evening too.  Starting at 8 pm, so it will be much, much cooler.  I'm really looking forward to it.  I don't know if it will be a long walk as my friend Sue T is coming along, it's her first walk in a few weeks due to her rolling her ankle and doing ligament damage.

IT'S MARCH TOMORROW!!!  And that means the 2019 FBG Urban Challenge starts in 17 days.  I'm pretty happy about that.  I can get back into a good walking routine again.

SEARCH FOR A JOB:  well that might go on the back burner for a while.  I'm just so busy with the sewing right now, my stock is quite low!  So, I'm going to concentrate on getting my stock built up before getting out there and seeing what's available.

ABOVE:  I found our life jackets yesterday afternoon.  NONE fit Stew or me.  So we will have to buy new ones.  Bloody boobs!  These ones will fit Brylee, Griffin, and other 'average' sized adults, and a small child or two.

At some point I hope to get a waterproof container/pod thingee for the back of one of the kayaks, to hold 'stuff'.... food for picnics and so on.  

I brought the paddles and seats home yesterday from the shop.  We will be picking up the kayaks on Saturday.

ABOVE:  I saw an advert for this stuff on the telly last night, and while it's probably NOT something Kelly should try (!), I might cos my eyebrows are non existent... I am going to try and find some today... and give it a go.

And that's about it for now... catch ya later.


12 noon:  well I've done a good deal of stuff this morning, virtually none of it was on my 'to do' list!  Typical.
I did get a little bit of sewing done though, so I'm happy about that.
I suck at 'free motion' sewing by the way!  I can do it on small projects, but not large ones like the Alien Quilt. *sigh*

I'm off into Hamilton soon... boob squish time.  Oh yaaa.  Can't wait!

 ABOVE:  I arrived in Hamilton a bit early, so parked up by the lake for half an hour. It was lovely, good breeze blowing so cooler.

I had to park on the VERY TOP of the car park building... level 17, which was supposed to be for Staff Only... but there was no option.  

AS for the boob squish, that went well!  Not too painful thankfully.  

After that was over, I went and bought some of that eyebrow tint shit... and yep:

ABOVE: Top to bottom, before, during and after.
IT'S SHIT.  It was not supposed to pull out any hairs... and it DID.  Which really pissed me off cos I don't have many anyway!
And well... it made NO DIFFERENCE at all!
So, I'm taking it back ... I want my $25 back thank you very much.  Very disappointed.

9.34 pm:  And our FBG Social Walk went ahead, and it was lovely.  Next time we will have to set off earlier though as it was dark by the time we got home.

Now... Coronation Street is on and it's chill out time.  Then bed.  
It's been a good day.


  1. Do you have mammograms twice yearly?

    1. Nope... I meant 2 yearly! Sorry about that.

  2. Glad mammogram went without a hitch...take your photos with you to show the shop clear as to me that it's a RIP off and doesn't cut the mustard

  3. Oh, that’s good, I wouldn’t like to think of you going through that twice a year, my eyebrows are like yours, why don’t you try a light brown mascara and just sweep it up over the brows,

  4. OMG! The eyebrow mishap! The really sad part is that it looked like crap even while it was on. It's clumpy. Your eyebrows are just fine. Let the poor things be! Kelly, too! Both of you have such amazing blue eyes I don't think anyone will notice your brows anyhow.

  5. I looked at the YouTube videos for that eyebrow stuff and they didn't think much of it either. I just use a really good eyebrow pencil and am happy with that. I get a mammogram every year - well that's when my doctor keeps referring me. No reason except that I go private. I usually stretch it out to around 18 months a time as I don't see the need to go annually.

  6. Now, laughing at myself. When you said "during" I thought you meant the brief time the color actually worked. (But you meant while it was dying). Right? So, if that is the case - the color had ZERO affect. Your brows are LIGHTER than they were before! What a bunch of crap! I thought the "color" worked for a while and completely faded by evening. The truth is far worse! And it is supposed to last three days!

  7. lololol your beauty experiment reminds me of my blog Christy xxxx

    this is the pencil I use but there are cheaper ones at farmers too.

    I tried that stuff ages ago, and used to get them tinted every couple of months, and coloured them in myself. I gave up when half my eyebrows actually started falling out, so got them microbladed, and I love it. I don't have to do anything with them now, they are just perfect and ready to go in the morning. Now if only I could find a reasonably permanent way to make my lashes longer and darker I'd be a happy lady haha

  10. One of my friends just got hers tattooed they look really nice
