 Today will go something like this:

1. Grandkids, feed them, entertain them.  Send them home.

2. Disinfect the house... cos one of the kids had a tummy bug.

3. Discuss with Steve installing more shelving in me Drying Room.

And maybe do some housework.  Or not.

Seriously, there is bugger all on the agenda.  Just a day to chill out.

I had a nice yak with The Old Moo last night, she was feeling a bit better yesterday.  I hope she has another good day today.

Right, not much else to do for now... will get up and do some more washing, get the grandkids sorted out for the day and check on my latest painting.  It was drying well and not running off the canvas last time I looked at it.

It's going to be awesome once I have more shelving!


ABOVE:  Two happy children, who I've fed and watered, and filled with sugar.  Cos that's what this Grandma does.

Don't they look happy?  And warm.  It's a cold morning here.  No frost, but still chilly. Looks like it will be a nice day out there.

Liam lost a front tooth yesterday, so the Tooth Fairy had to visit overnight.  THANK GOD she did not forget!  Pats on the back.

ABOVE:  We have the builder in the house.  He's already installed shelving in my Drying Room, now he's working on leveling my 'work table'.  Bex and the boys came over for a while too, but have now gone home.

ABOVE:  Steve installing the shelving.  It's really lovely, old rimu shelving that came out of a commercial shop.  I love it.
Weird how you can 'love' shelving!  lol  He's spent a good amount of time making sure each and every shelf is level too.
AND he's going to be making more shelves for it too, later on at some point.  
What's there is plenty to keep me going for now. 

4 pm:  Steve finished off the job, and went home.   Then Stew and I fluffed around in the garage for a while. 

ABOVE:  And there it is, a gorgeous new shelving unit.  Thanks so much Steve.
ABOVE: Steve also put another good sized shelf on the opposite side of the room.  
Now I just have to wait until all those painting are 100% dry before I can varnish them.

For someone who had bugger all to do today, I've sure been busy!
Those shelves were FILTHY, so I washed them down.  The water came out BLACK!
We have jigged a few things in the garage too... just adjusting a few things so we have more wiggle room.

Now?  I really am going to relax and do nothing for a while.

8.30 pm:  And it's been a lovely quiet evening.  I've just caught up on 'Liar', seems I missed it coming back on.  Looking forward to Episode 3 tonight.

Catch ya tomorrow.
