 Yesterday's trip up to Auckland was not about shopping, it was about spending time together.

Visiting old haunts and just enjoying the day.

BUT... we did do a tiny bit of shopping.

I felt like we could do with a couple more coffee mugs.  I like naughty mugs.

ABOVE:  We found these in Acquisitions.  

They are perfect for ME.

Today I will be in my sewing room, first off sorting it out and re-packing my stock.

Then choosing a couple of cot panels to work on over the next week or two.

I've also moved my PC into the sewing room.  It was just getting too cramped in my 'walk in wardrobe' room.  There's plenty more room in the sewing room.

ABOVE:  Wrestling with a decision I've made.  Hoping by some miracle I don't have to go down a certain road.  It's very much a 'wait and see' situation.  Weighs heavy on me.

But, I have my darling Stew for support, so I will be fine.

I just need to see more butterflies.  πŸ˜ŒπŸ˜πŸ¦‹

Right, let's start the day.  Keep busy, keep my mind occupied with happy things.

ROBYN:  If you saw yesterday's line up of Bowl Cosy's  ... ignore it!  I found more I hadn't unpacked, so here are the choices:

Have fun choosing!  OH and I forgot the number 13. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†  Bowl Cosy's are $15 each btw.

ABOVE:  Well I now have the computer situated in here, and it's working out really good.  I can have me music playing, or answer emails etc without having to use my phone.

ABOVE:  I've chosen the two cot panels I am going to be working on.  Both are super cute.

Brylee just arrived, so I'll take a break and have morning tea.  It's damn cold this morning!

Oh shit!  Have I really not been back here all day!
Well... I have been happily pottering around the house.
After lunch I did some sewing.
Then I did some of my jig saw puzzle.  OMG it's so hard.  But I'm loving it.
After that I had a nana nap... cos I was tired.
Then I cooked dinner.

ABOVE:  We had Spaghetti Bolognaise, it was absolutely delicious. 
And there's enough left over for us to have again tomorrow night.  I'll probably put it with veges for a change.

And that's me for today.  We are watching telly, not that there's much on.  But it's what we do most evening... watch TV, yak, chill out.


  1. The octopus coffee mug is may favorite:) Your sewing room looks very cheerful with all those fun fabrics!

    Sounds like a plan with the leftover Spaghetti bowl but don’t forget to ask Lacy if she needs some leftovers,,✅
    Love her style 🎸

  9. I LOVE the mugs, especially the People are so stupid one. I live in the UK so will have to hunt around, I think!

  10. Those coffee cups are very appropriate for my life. Chosing one daily would be hard. Your blog posts are always incredibly colorful!
