SATURDAY

,Sorry!  I went for a walk first thing this morning, it was just too nice a day not to.
Then when I got home I forgot I'd not done my post.
So... let's start the day...


Late yesterday afternoon I got a knock on the door, it was a delivery lady with this:

ABOVE:  A gorgeous flower arrangement from a very dear friend in Australia.  Thank you so much Michele C, you are just lovely.

This also made me cry, as it is exactly what my Mum would have done to cheer me up.
Mum was my staunchest supporter, and would certainly have sent me flowers by now!

But, I now have the next best thing... Mum's partner Ron and I talk OFTEN, and he's behind us 100%, just as my Mum would have been. 


AND...  I must not forget to pick up my new pants from the mall this afternoon!  Then I can show them to you.  They are so DIFFERENT!


11.47 am:  Nearly lunchtime... and OMGosh I'm hungry!
I think we are having frankfurters on buns... so yummy.

Sheesh! I almost forgot my new pants. At the base waiting for them now.

ABOVE:  I asked him to take a photo of me and my new pants.  Yeah.  Got photos of him, and two shit photos of me pants.
I ended up taking them myself:


ABOVE:  HOW FUNKY ARE THEY?
I just love them, and they are so comfortable to wear!  Check out that border along the bottom.  So cool.

To all who thought I could have/should have shortened my pants myself... well while I'm sure I could have, I didn't want to.
They were horribly expensive and as I said before, I didn't want to stuff it up.
They are made with a super soft, stretchy fabric, and I have never been too confident doing stretch stitch.

Now... it's getting on in the evening, all is quiet and we are just watching TV till bedtime.
Catch ya tomorrow.

      A sweet chocolate malt powder that you make either hot (hot water, milk, milo) or have it cold with just milk or eat off the spoon or sprinkled on top of vanilla icecream.πŸ˜‹

  8. I love the pants but have no idea why you couldn’t take them up yourself. I do that stuff and I don’t see as much as you (or have such a flash machine). They look great.

  9. Oh Also I’m surprised your Steve didn’t put the pants on and take a photo of himself 🀦‍♀️πŸ˜‚

    Did they take the border off, take up the pants and then re-attach the borders. I think it would have been fairly easy to take them up otherwise as the border is striped at the bottom but if you didn't feel confident I can understand you didn't want to take the risk. Not much about the family today. Audrey

  28. Love those pants, don't blame y9ou for getting someone else to shorten them. Stretchy fabric can be difficult to handle.
