YEP... I am going on an FBG walk this morning!

It will be the first one in about 2 months.  Two lovely FBG girls are leading it who I really LIKE, so it will go well.

I'm really looking forward to it.

Yesterday afternoon, once I'd chilled out for a while, I decided to tackle just a little job.

I did this:  I added some pink to the painting above our bed.  It was all blues/teal and white.

ABOVE:  Well, what do ya think???
I think it's got enough on it now... had a bit of fun getting the balance right... and the paint colour!

I sure did not have that colour in my cupboard.  I had to use 3 different shades of red, three purples, 1 gold and white to get that shade.  

Now, after my walk I am going into Hamilton to do the grocery shopping.  Friggin JOY.  But we are gunna start being rather hungry and dirty soon if I don't.  *sigh*

So, I will catch ya later.


Bedtime story 😁
A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she laid her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest.
After a moment or two, the vet shook his head and sadly said, "I'm sorry, your duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed woman wailed, "Are you sure?"

"Yes, I am sure. Your duck is dead," replied the vet..
"How can you be so sure?" she protested.. "I mean you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room. He returned a few minutes later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked up at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.
The vet patted the dog on the head and took it out of the room. A few minutes later he returned with a cat. The cat jumped on the table and also delicately sniffed the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
The vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman..
The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$1,500!" she cried,"$1,500 just to tell me my duck is dead!"
The vet shrugged, "I'm sorry. If you had just taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20, but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $1,500."

I couldn't help but share, it's funny.  Smile.  It's a good day.

ABOVE:  9.30 am ... meeting up for our walk this morning.  In freezing cold fog.  Everyone was in thick puffer jackets and the like.  I was in a t-shirt and leggings for most of the walk.
There will probably be a 'walk photo' later on.

For now though, I'm off to do the shopping.

ABOVE:  Walk photo... doesn't everyone look cold.  I kept my jacket on for the first half of the walk, then it came off.

ABOVE:  The groceries are done... and put away.  'Only' took me about 3 hours to do it.
Brylee got home when I was almost finished putting it all away, and did help a little bit.

Now it's 4.20 pm and I'm friggin knackered.  And I have to start cooking dinner in an hour.  Fuck it never ends.

Dinner tonight was some very nice lamb patties and veges.  And Gravy.  So yum.

Now... it's the end of the day and I'm gunna do nothing else except watch some silly TV.
