Back later.

ABOVE:  Kinda my mood upon waking today.
But... I decided a few pills and a better attitude might be nicer than being in a funk all day.

So, I forced myself to get up, fling the windows open and do some housework.

I got the vacuming all done and the floors washed.

ABOVE:  Have I told you how BRILLIANT this little mop is!  It's just so, so easy to use.  I LOVE IT.  $49 from Godfreys.  

ABOVE:  Stew had a regular doctor's appointment this morning over our way, so he dropped in afterwards for a cuppa tea.
Can I just say how much I love and adore this man?
He is totally and utterly my NUMBER ONE PERSON on this earth, he is the BEST husband, father and grandfather anyone could ask for.

ABOVE:  After Stew went back to work I decided to go and grab a few snacks for our trip down the line on Friday.
Nice and healthy eh?  lol

AND then I went to Briscoes to try and find a new towel rail for our ensuite, cos the current one fell off the wall this morning.
NO luck with the rail, but I did find ummmm....

ABOVE: Some BEAUTIFUL new melamine trays and a glass trivet!
Someone said I should do something I liked today... so shopping it is.  😊😉😂

ABOVE:  I also got this lovely container for our toothbrushes, toothpaste, nail scrubber etc.  I don't like the one we have anymore.  It's made of wood (bamboo?) and is looking a bit manky now.

ABOVE:  Lastly for now... Brylee I have put that pumice in our pond.  I'm sure the fish will love pushing it around. 

Time for some lunch I do believe.

4.20 pm:  And oh my it's quiet around here.  Maybe I should have stayed away today?  What are ya all doing?

I've been doing me puzzle a bit, and just fluffing around the house.  Not really inclined to do much more today.

6.14 pm:  Stew will be home soon.  We are having Beer Battered Prawns and wedges for dinner.  I had thought about making a little coleslaw as a 'healthy' side salad, but meh.  Neither of us will want it really!

8.38 pm:  Well our dinner was really nice.  The prawns... OMG so yum!  I will certainly be getting them again.
Nothing else is going on now, just our usual quiet evening.
Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. 😥 hope the headache clears soon

  3. Rest up, have a day to yourself, relax & do stuff that you love and forget the world at large for a bit.

  4. Sounds like a day of resting and relaxing is in order. I hope the headache dissipates soon. Take care of yourself x

  5. Take time for yourself you need it 💙

    I have the same mop as you...I have had one for about 3 years now and recommend it to everyone...


  7. You got plenty done today. Funny seeing Stew in his work clothes. So fancy!
    You could use those Melamine trays for sorting puzzle pieces. How is that puzzle coming along?

    1. I will show you tomorrow. Don't expect much! lol

  8. So glad you and Stew have each other, especially at times like these xxx

  9. Yay, road trip coming up! That's something to look forward to for sure.

  10. Work for me today, it's dull and deary out...not a nice day at all.

  11. Busy day at work then the vet 🙄. I'll probably not be able to get back here so have a super break away 😁❤

  13. Dammit. I commented this morning but the internet ate it. Maybe it ate other comments, too.
    Love your shopping efforts and a bonus having that handsome man drop in for a cuppa!!

    I have been using the same mop as your for about 3 years now, it so good.


  15. I'm having a wee giggle about your shopping (in the nicest possible way of course!) ... because on my comment this morning I nearly put "a touch of retail therapy" might help the headache 😊 Can you tell I love shopping?? 😊

  16. Always nice to have a surprise visitor pop on by. Enjoy your road tripping. Safe travels.

  17. Shopping is always good therapy, I haven't done it such a long time I forget what you have to do....what is shopping? You picked up some really cute trays, love them.
    P.S. Hope your headache is feeling better.

  18. I've never had a prawn. I'm not sure if I'd like them as I don't like eating shrimp.

  19. Stew is such a handsome man! I wish Scott dressed up more but he probably thinks the same about me haha.
