PLASTIC BOXES

 Yesterday I got some new Tupperware delivered.

NOT that I actually needed any new Tupperware!

But, a friend's daughter sells it, and a week or two ago she needed to make some sales to get her over a specific target, so I bought some.

ABOVE: The pink containers are for storing stuff in the freezer or fridge.  The blue ones are for reheating stuff in the microwave, and I just love the new measuring jug.

Today I'm going to dedicate a couple of hours to re-organising the contents of my pantry, and sorting through all my plastic ware.

I'm sure I could be using more of it, instead of having it all in a cupboard in the garage!

Yeah.  I've got HUNDREDS of dollars worth of Tupperware in the garage.  Doing nothing.  

I used to sell Tupperware back in the day, hence me having quite a bit of it.


ABOVE:  Last night's walk photo.  I look like a right dick!  I think I was trying to see over the tarts in front of me.  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…πŸ˜†  I look tired, and we were only half way through the freakin' walk.  

Gosh I have missed these girls so much. So, so happy I'm getting back over there to walk with them all again.

Even though I HATE WALKING.

OMG!  I just remembered!  I have a hair appointment this morning. 11.30 to be exact.

It's probably going to take a good 3+ hours to do my hair.  *sigh*  So, I better have a good breakfast, or I'll be friggin starving by the time I get out of there.


ABOVE:  TOTALLY how I'm feeling today.  Such an excellent feeling.  Sorry peeps, that's a 'family only knows' comment.  But just know I'm happy today.

Right, I've gathered up all the Tupperware and plastics and now... sorting!
I have a feeling I will be giving a lot away.


10 am:  And I've got all the Tupperware not in regular use on the kitchen bench.
The bowls will go back in the cupboard, cos I do use them a lot.
As for the rest?
Well I will have to start putting shit in them, and using them!
I've got a lot of baking ingredients in one REALLY BIG box in the bottom of the pantry.

This afternoon I will sort that lot out and put them into Tupperware containers.  I really should not just let them sit in a cupboard in the garage... right?

Ummmm... who NEEDS 5 Jel Rings?  Really?  FIVE?  I only NEED 2.

I wonder if Bex wants one?  Amanda?  Joyce? Can't see Lacy using one, but miracles could happen.  πŸ˜‰πŸ˜†

I'm stopping for now.  I don't want to get more involved in filling containers and so on before I have to head off to the hair salon.

Oh ... I'm quite excited about getting my hair done again!  
I've gone REALLY GREY around me edges in the past few months.  I know why of course.  

STRESS.

I blame so many bastards for that, it wasn't JUST me Mum dying.  It was all the shit that followed that sad event... plus a couple of other stressors.  BASTARDS. That's all I can say on it, I've been subjected to SO MUCH FRIGGIN' STRESS ... sometimes I wonder why the hell I've not had a heart attack or stroke!

I've done everything I can to lower my stress levels lately, as you know.  Closed me shop.  No markets.  Not worrying about things I can't change.

Focus on only ONE thing at a time... and only things I can do something about.  Stew has been WONDERFUL, taking care of me so well.  
I hope I take care of him too.

Darling, I love you so, so much.  You are my  EVERYTHING.

And ummm, how did I get here from plastics and grey hair????  πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„πŸ˜‹

Better go and tidy myself up... and have something to eat.
ABOVE: An hour and 47 minutes later... all the foils are in. Now I sit and wait between 40 and 50 minutes until it's ready to be washed off. I'm ROASTING under this plastic cape. 
The things we do for vanity. πŸ₯΄πŸ™„πŸ˜

And it is now 4.05 pm, and I've just got home from the hair salon.  4.5 hours sitting.  Not the most comfortable way to spend half ya day, but oh well....  here's the result:

ABOVE:  I had a good amount taken off the length, and some shaping around the face.  Then the hairdresser gave it a bit of curl.  I like it a lot.
Not practical for when I'm scrubbing the floors etc, but nice to wear out sometimes.

So, after having an incredibly late lunch (after 4pm), I finished off the pantry and sorting out the Tupperware.
Then Stew got home and took me and my beautiful hairdo out to dinner!   

We went to Foundation at The Base, and just shared a pizza and wedges.  
It was nice and quiet there tonight, which was good as I have a bit of an headache.

Now that we are home, we shall just chill out till bedtime.
Catch ya tomorrow.

    Absolutely love the colour, and the curls are awesome ! I've not had even a trim since lockdown no 3 began at Christmas - roll on 26th April when the mobile hairdresser will come to the house. My hair has not been this long since before I had the kids ! I quite like the length but gets in the way when doing housework etc, and I think will annoy the hell out of me when I'm changung beds and cleaning showers in the summer. A chop may be happening !
