 Today will be a first for us.

I am picking our granddaughter Keera up from School at 3 pm.

She now gets to spend every 2nd weekend with us and Lacy ... right up until I take her back to school on Monday morning!

Such a fantastic outcome, one we fought hard to get.

Yesterday, while visiting the Specialist with Brylee... I was fixated on these:

ABOVE:  The doctor's socks!  Yep.  I just loved them.  I was really tempted to ask him where he got them.  But πŸ˜’ I didn't.

And lets be real, Stew has quite enough freakin' socks.

Now, back to today.  I'm expecting a parcel delivery, so once that has arrived I will be going to the supermarket, returning a carpet sample, picking up a prescription, and who knows what else? 

ABOVE: My hand is looking way, way better, and the soreness is almost gone too.

Hallway/bedroom carpet - we have accepted a 'cash out' payment from our insurance company, and will put the money towards the new carpet for the entire house in a couple of months time.  So that is sorted.

In fact, literally everything that has been 'on my mind' for MONTHS AND MONTHS is resolved.  So, life can now get back to 'normal'.

I might even start sewing again soon!  

1.55 pm:  making this quick. I've had a busy morning, housework mostly.
Now I'm getting ready to head out to pick up Keera and them come home.
My parcel hasn't arrived yet, so our friend Tarsh is housesitting in case it arrives while I'm out.
Such a lovely girl!

OMG the bloody parcel has not turned up yet!  So, so frustrating.
I have to sign for it... I bet the bastards turn up at 4.58 pm.   

Our kiddo is happily eating afternoon tea, full of chatter and gossip! Man you get told SO MUCH SHIT from a blabber mouth!  lol

This evening we had fish 'n' chips for dinner.   Then yoghurt and fruit and hot milo. 

ABOVE: Our happy granddaughter... and the darling girls.  All snug as a bug in a rug.

And now... all is quiet in the house.
Time to sign off for the day.
Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. Great hand is on the mend, hope Keera is sent to school today and the school has been informed of the new arrangement

  2. Glad the hand is improving. Sounds like you knocked it and broke a blood vessel. These things happen as we get older. Not that you are, of course!
    What a lovely weekend it will be having Keera for all that time. Dare I say the trolls and nuff nuffs will have a field day with their nasty comments?

    1. Lacy πŸ˜‚ you’re so funny, lunch ha ha

    2. It's not bullshit, she really did only go to school to eat her lunch!

  6. Glad pick up went well

  7. So happy to hear about the new Keera arrangement! But Keera - you might have to give your Mum a little refresher course in Math! Are you doing Calculus yet? One step at a time, don't be afraid of Math. That is something a very awesome Summer Counselor told my son. Math is step by step, if you don't get it, back up a step then keep going! Addition , subtraction, multiplying, dividing and then some other stuff......
