Stew  is wiped out.  His first week back at work and they are just so busy.  People still pass away over the holidays.  So there is a backlog of work for them all when they get back!  

He wants a quiet weekend.

Let's have a second go... and see if that gift shop is open today.  Stew suggested we go there, not me.

I'm on the hunt for more little glass bottles.  My latest 'gotta have', they are just so damn cute.

I really am a 'collector' of stuff.  At least little glass bottles are cheap (ish).

Right, that's it from me for now.

Catch ya later.

1.34 pm:   Just had lunch after being out for a few hours.

We checked out that gift shop in Horsham Downs.

ABOVE:  We found quite a few little bits 'n' bobs in here, and got them for gifts.  Either for my FBG friends or birthdays coming up.

I can't show them obviously... they would lose their surprise value for sure.

ABOVE:   I got these for us.  I just love the glaze on the pots.

After Horsham Downs, we did a tiki tour around the area.  It's grown so big in the past 20 years.  It all used to be farmland out there!

Then we decided to go over to Hamilton East and check out those shops.  Wasn't very impressed.  Lots of eateries.  A nice gallery. Shoe shop, etc. 

ABOVE:  I made us a lamb and bacon burger for lunch.  It was DELICIOUS.

I'm making us another one for dinner, with wedges.

I'm in a food coma now.  Going to just relax for a while now.

Sorry Dee!  We spent the afternoon relaxing, then the kids came around and they had a swim.  Once they left Stew and I got in the pool too.

Then I cooked dinner, we had a burger and chips, same burgers as lunchtime.  Again, delicious.

Now we are watching a series on Netflix called Stay Close.  It's not coming together yet.

Might have to watch more.

And on that note, I'm signing off for the day.

  5. That burger looks amazeballs ๐Ÿค— I think the back to work blues is in full swing even though I only work 4 days ya still gotta cram 5 days in ๐Ÿฅบ Steve should complain higher up the food chain ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’™

  6. Looks like that food coma was good, no updates ๐Ÿ˜‚
