 I'm off to town this morning.

We ordered a new Britto figurine, and it's arrived, so I will pick it up. There's been virtually no new Britto for months and months, so getting a new piece is exciting.

I also want to visit the supermarket and grab a few necessities. 

I've been trying to grow houseplants, with limited success.  I've killed more succulents than I thought possible!

But ONE PLANT is doing really well!!!  

ABOVE:  It's on top of the cupboard in our bathroom.... and doesn't get much direct sunlight.  But it's doing so well!  And it's lovely.  

I recently re-potted my 'String of Hearts' too.  I'm keeping a close eye on it, cos knowing my luck, it's gunna die.

It's so weird really, many years ago I had HEAPS of houseplants and they all did well.  Now?  

Yeah, lost me green thumb somewhere along the way.

I might have to invest in a few more realistic looking fake plants!

OK... that's enough waffling for now.

Catch ya later.

OH and I've decided to go with.... QUILT for my latest project.  I think it would be ruined as a Duvet cover... too much washing and wear.  But it was worth thinking about.  Thanks for your input, it helped.

ABOVE:  I only got one Britto today, instead of the two I had planned on getting.
Ursula the Sea Witch was just far, far too expensive!
The prices have gone up and there is just no way I could justify buying her.  Sad.
But I did get Ariel, even though she was also expensive... but not as bad as Ursula.

After the gift shop, I went to The Chemist Warehouse for some essentials... $120 later!
Eeee gads, nothing is cheap, even in that shop.

Next stop was the supermarket for a couple of things.  That ended up being a trolley full. πŸ˜•πŸ˜–

Money just GOES!

ABOVE:  Home, groceries etc away.  Girls are in the sun.
Lunch time.

Oh and comments?  Is there a glitch on Blogger, or am I just friggin boring you?   

ABOVE:  While not finished yet, this is my favourite butterfly so far!  
Working on block number 7.
Two to go before I can start stitching.

Right, block number 7 is almost done.
Dinner tonight is Lamb and Garlic sausages, Kumera Rissoles, Kumera Poppas, Lettuce salad and hot buns.  Well, that's what Stew is having.  I had mine at lunchtime.
The sausages are super strong flavoured, so I only ate half of one.  

I will show you our new Britto figurine tomorrow.  I waited to open it till Stew got home.
It's gorgeous!

ABOVE:  resident tart.... there's not been many left overs for her lately.  Which means I'm cooking just the right amount for Stew and I now!  It's taken quite a bit of time getting that sorted I can tell you!

Anyway... it's time to wind down for the day.
Catch ya tomorrow.

    I love the layout of your home. It is so bright, airy, and comfy looking.

    I have no problem posting, but the layout is different, and I like it.

  4. Only one comment that does seem odd! I gave up on house plants but I do have a couple succulents at work. I need to refresh them since they barely got watered for 2 years and some died lol

  5. I have just got a chance to sit down and check your blog for the second time. I don’t have time to comment before work at 6 am. I’m a bit envious of the sun the dogs are enjoying as we are expecting a high of 14 today and 13 tomorrow

  6. That green leafy plant is the only thing I can keep alive too! Funny, mine do better in a bottle of water than they do in soil!

  7. Yeah you're as boring as bat shit 🀣 jokes. Still WFH but back to the office next week don't want to because apparently my two colleagues are not talking to one another FFS they need to grow up πŸ’™πŸ’™

  8. There is a cafe that has that plant all over the roof, walls etc. They keep striking cuttings and away they go. I have bought one and am keeping my fingers crossed.

  9. Other bloggers have said their comments are going into their Spam.

    Maybe you've overrated your suc ulents. They only need water once a week in summer and minimal in the off season. Some growers don't watΓ©r them at all in winter. I will every 3 weeks and watch them. They don't like wet feet. Kj

  11. Haha awesome tart more like lol
