Today, for the first time in 6 weeks, I can actually RELAX and do nothing if I wish!

OMG... how amazing is that going to feel?

I'm going to sleep in... well lie in I mean.  When I'm sick of that, I will get up and ...

SEW?  Visit a girlfriend?  Go for a walk (yeah, nah ... too tired)... but the gist is... I can do whatever I want.

The pressure is now off.  Yes, there's a few small jobs still needing doing, but there's no rush to get them done.

We've got 4 houses to look at this weekend, two on each day.  I feel like three of them could be definite possibilities.  Exciting.

ABOVE:  But... to be  honest, this is the house I'm looking for!  lol

ABOVE: Little collage from yesterday.
Bloody shopping, Pak 'n Save: most hated place on my list, and the girls snuggled up on my lap last night.

Right, I am gunna roll over and watch something on me phone before thinking about getting up and doing... well... whatever!


12.05:  Well, I tried to do nothing, I really did.
But after lying in bed till 8 I got up and thought about what to do.
And I did try just sitting and relaxing, but I'm just not wired that way... well not till after dinner that is.  *smiles*

So I decided to take down the shade sail out the front of the house.

ABOVE:  Before I took it down... photo taken sometime last year.

 ABOVE:  Now, without shade sail.  Much tidier for marketing.  The shade sail had sagged and it was greenish in places from mould build up... kinda ikky.  Much happier with how it looks without it.

And now... I'm gunna have some lunch and think about dinner too.  We have the first Real Estate Agent coming back tonight with her proposal and appraisal.  Yikes!  I hope it's good.

Today is dragging!  Seriously.  I am not making dinner till after the Estate Agent has been, so I'm literally twiddling me thumbs.

Ummm, actually no.  I've done a little bit of work in the sewing room.

ABOVE:  A layout for my 2nd 'Holiday Time' Table Runner.  No stitching done yet... still got heaps to do ... but it's a start.  And the first thing I've done in bloody forever.

Funky little Mini eh?  *smiles*

End of the day, the Estate Agent came, yakked and went.  It wasn't quite as good as we hoped, but still doable. Won't clear our mortgage ... but will certainly bring it down somewhat.

Now we wait to see what our next agent comes up with.

That's not till Monday night.

Now ... time to head off to bed I think.  I've had a nasty headache all day.


  1. And she finally relaxes 😊 Good 👍💙

    1. Bet the next update is about the 20 things she did this morning :-)

    2. AHHhhh NO! I've only really done one biggish thing. And some washing. So there smarty pants.

    3. The day is young lol :-)

    4. yea the day is young lol 😂

    Have you thought about doing click and collect at Pak n Save? Or getting your groceries delivered by Countdown? It's a total life changer! I haven't stepped into a grocery shop in 2 years as I get them delivered by Countdown. I hate grocery shopping, especially at Pak n Save! Our one here is feral!

  3. Hope u nodded off and had a well deserved sleep in.

  4. I cannot stand PaknSave, I am virtually homicidal by the time I get through the fruit & veg section, I don't know if there are too many people or that they all just seem to be clueless twats. I don't care if it is dearer but I prefer Countdown any day. New World I use sometimes but that definitely is either way more expensive or they just have way more tempting stuff. Our NW has great meat though and they have fixed price on their steak for example eye fillet is $ 8 each so you know exactly how much it is going to cost.

    1. Yep, it is pretty grim in there sometimes. Yesterday I counted 4 women/teenagers in their PYJAMAS ... one was virtually naked under her cardigan. Disgusting. Fucking bogans.

    2. OMG, that just reminded me. Yesterday I went up to the top of our driveway to get picked up by my daughter and a neighbour came home, parked her car on the road and got out wearing pyjamas and slippers and carrying some takeaway food for lunch.

    3. That's how I feel about the Wal Mart on my way home from work. I've literally just set things down anywhere and walked out from the anxiety of the place lol

    Id love that house too. Oh wait that is my house. Used to be a lounge/sewing room but its a sewing room / lounge now lol.

  6. Hope the real estate agent visits go well.
