HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR SON STEVE TODAY... we hope you have an awesome day.

Today I am working in the morning again.
I doubt Stew will be coming with me today.

He doesn't have to get up early to get Griffin to work, so he will no doubt have a much needed sleep in.

When I get home I am either going to sew, or paint.
I'd love to paint again really, but have got quite a bit to get done in the sewing room.

So.. yeah, probably will sew.

That's all I have for now, sorry it's a boring day.


1 pm:  Well.. home from work... which was good.  Got heaps done, I always leave feeling like I've made a difference.

I met a new friend today too:

ABOVE:  A little bit of company today!

ABOVE:  I don't even know if horsey was a girl or boy!   It saw me getting the garden hose and neighed it's head off and ran over to me!  So cute.

I read on the box of shower cleaner that you could use an orbital sander to apply it to the shower doors/walls... to make it easier and quicker.


ABOVE:  Of course I got out my handy dandy little orbital sander didn't I?

And I used a safety extension cord, so I didn't electrocute myself (YES RON, I ain't no fool)!  *smiles*

And OMG !!!!  It was amazing.

Except, I put the cleaning agent ON the sander pad first ... and guess what happened when I turned it on?

Yep, that shit flew all over the bathroom!  And me.

Lesson learnt, put that shit ON THE DOORS OR WALL, NOT THE SANDER.

 ABOVE:  I am in AWE of how good a job it does!  AWE I tell ya.   I think it will take another going over before I eliminate 100% of the water marks though.

 ABOVE:  I only did one side of the shower walls/door cos seriously, I'm friggin exhausted!
And to do the entire shower, and all the fiddly bits around the edges and taps etc, will take me at least 2-3 hours.  And I'm not up for that today.

I already had a huge mess to clean up after I spun that shit all over the bathroom!

ABOVE:  And yeah, I now need a shower!  I might get around to that shortly.

Brylee and Jordan are at the movies in Hamilton, coming back here for dinner and a SLEEP OVER!  

NOPE, he's not sleeping with Brylee, he's sleeping in the lounge on his Pat Malone.

I wonder how he will feel if I'm in me nightie when they get back?  Like, why would I have a shower and get dressed AGAIN?  lol

ABOVE:  And there ya go! All clean and in me nightie at..... 5 pm.  I hope we don't get any 'other' visitors, or I'll be racing down to me bedroom to actually put some clothes on!  lol

Dinner tonight was a really nice vege and bacon soup I made in the crock pot.  It simmered all day and was just lovely with some fresh bread.

And that's a wrap for the day.  Everyone is safely home from being out and about.
