More random musings from me - in no particular order!
Still no sewing - this is the longest I've ever gone without sewing.
Phone call from Spotlight the other day that a pattern I wanted in April had come in - must be a Simplicity pattern (when it was on sale) as I buy all my other patterns from BMV. No doubt I'll have to pay full price for this one! I'll go in later today and pick it up.
I turned 46 in April - aarrgghh! Had a lovely day and was thoroughly spoiled by Neale and the kids.
Weight loss/diet???? That all seems to have fallen by the wayside as soon as the weather turned yucky.
Although, this past week has been absolutely glorious - albeit cold.
Football is on today - I'm not a fan. Why oh why did I buy a house directly opposite the local football oval???
It normally takes me approx 8 mins to drive to work. Tuesday 2 weeks ago it took 1 hour. Major flooding in the state after wild weather Monday night had cut off 2 roads from Churchill to Morwell. Did I take it as a sign to stay home for the day??? No, I got out on the 4th back road I tried - IDIOT!!! Managed to make it home safely - left early though just to make sure.
No 3 son Hadden, turned 19 in may. We all went out to tea at a Chinese Restaurant in Morwell and had a lovely meal. Hadden is considering moving out - when he's saved some more money. Neale and I have plans for the spare bedroom! Hadden works full time (night shift) at Maccas.
Churchill Pizza make the best pizza - expensive, but the best!! Actually, their pizza is reasonably priced - about $27 for 2 family pizzas - expensive comes into it for me as the pizza we had from 3 weeks ago has cost me $600-00. I broke a tooth, which needed major restoration work. Of course the dentist did a checkup, noticed a dark spot, whipped out an xray and said that that tooth needed repairing also. Had the 2nd tooth done Thursday night after work - major restoration on that one too and Dr Caprara then says he hope that it lasts! He hopes??? Apparently it's very close to needing a root canal. So for not quite 2 hours work I'm $600 poorer - it takes me 38 hours to earn that kind of money !!!!
It's been a rotten long week at work - mind you that Monday was a public Holiday for the Queen's Birthday also - 4 days of problems! Our Manager is on sick leave and will be until probably mid next month. Melbourne head office, seems to think that 3 of us can run the whole office ourselves with no help at all. I'm sure that none of them have looked at a map of Victoria and seen just how big the Gippsland region actually is!
My Mum turned 70 last week. We had a family celebration at a local restaurant - 33of us! It was great to catch up with all my brothers and sisters , their families and a couple of the aunts and uncles also. Mum had a good time. One of my sister's had ordered a cake, so that was made short work of.
I bought myself a black 'boyfriend' style cardigan last night whilst out shopping - I have a thing for cardigans! (I've also got 3 on Layby!) and also a grey boucle short jacket. I'd just told Neale how I should have bought last week when I saw it a white/grey leopard fur coat when I saw it - and now the sizes they have left are too small. He said if you see something 'buy it straight away" none of this dilly dallying etc. So I did. I've stil got the fur jacket on my mind and am now considering a drive to the next store down the raod - about 40 mins away, to see if they still have one in stock!
Neale and I celebrated our 26th Wedding Anniversary on 10th May. We've been together as a couple for nearly 30 years. Oh my!
