 Guess what?

We have absolutely NOTHING on our agenda today.


Stew did the lawns and gardens yesterday.  I got all the washing done.

The pool is up and running.

Everything inside the house is pretty much done.

It feels weird.

I have a fence panel (a friend's) to paint, so maybe I shall get on with that?

It's been on my 'to do' list for quite a while.  I am planning on doing a 'wave' on it, but the panel is not perfectly flat, so I'm not too sure how it will work out.  I think that's why I've been putting it off.

Areas in the garage need tidying up... so that's another possibility for the day. 

*sigh*... it's just so weird not having much to do.

ABOVE:  This boy!  It's like every time he arrives at our house, he immediately grabs a dog.  Sure looks like Coco is struggling with that.  NOT. 😊😌😅

ABOVE:  Made me laugh.

ABOVE:  Pretty sure this shall be my next cat.  Any idea what the words might be?

OK... that's me for now. 

Catch ya later on.

11.40 am:  Well today was a first.  I stayed in bed until 11 am!!!
Yep.  Just watched YouTube, Instagram, the news and so on.  Dozed a bit.
Stew was up at 8.30 to watch the rugby.
Sadly, our All Blacks lost to France.  I don't think Stew was overly impressed. 

I've now been up long enough to have a shower and tend to the pool.

Now?  Dunno.  Perhaps we will go out for a drive and have lunch somewhere nice.

ABOVE: I adore our backyard.  It's perfect on a tiny scale.  

ABOVE:  Our 'Yesterday Today and Tomorrow' shrub.  Stunning.

ABOVE: 2 pm... And we are in Tirau. One of our favorite places to (MOSTLY) window shop.
Nothing has screamed BUY ME.. so we are now having a very late lunch at our usual eatery here.

ABOVE: What the hell did we do before it became a 'thing' to take a photo of our meal and post it to social media?

Like... did we just EAT IT?  !!!

That was a Lamb Burger and fries.  There was too much meat in it for me, so Stew got some of mine.

So once we were home from Tirau we just chilled out  and watched TV.  So nice just doing NOTHING.  lol
It's getting easier and easier to be a lazy tart.

Catch ya tomorrow.

    The pool is open, the pool is open!! I'll be right over, save me a spot. Haha Ky Girl

  6. The first cat pic is so true! I would just have purrrr. But anonymous' bling and diva is good too. Maybe you could do a series with different personalities. A table runner even with several of them.

  7. Its so strange you guys can travel around... so jealous. My sister has spent the day with mum in rotorua and theyre out lunching and shopping... ugh. Jealous!! Enjoy 😉

  8. I'm doing bugger all as well too drained after driving my parents to Mum's sister's funeral in Palmerston North so very sad 🥺 she was my favourite Aunt

  9. Your garden is looking gorgeous Chris. A lovely place to unwind I’m sure. Just been catching up on your posts and saw the one re hair loss.. Maybe a blood test to check your b12 and folate levels would be a good place to start. Taking the diabetes meds stops the absorption of b12 in the stomach as does some reflux meds. Just a thought. A lack of vit d can also cause hair loss as can thyroid problems. Think the vit D could be ruled out though as you get plenty of sun. Maybe just start with mentioning it to the Dr when you go next and get blood tests. Then at least you know what you can rule out.
    Take care and have a great week. Xx
