Because I have duty at the Hospice Shop today, I am NOT going for a walk.
If Bex wants to go, she's on her own!
I'm not listening to her again! Pffffft, "It's only 10 minutes to the Botanic Gardens"... my arse!
I knew it would take double that time, and I was right. And her saying "Well we are here now so let's take a walk around the gardens too".... she's a crafty girl is our Bex! Lucky for her I didn't really mind.
But... I shall conserve my energy today for being on me feet for 4 hours at the Hospice Shop. *smiles*
This morning I shall get some washing done, do a bit of sewing maybe? And I dunno, just be at home and happy.
Works for me.
ABOVE: bloody little escape artists.
ANON from the other day: if dogs only live/have memory at "that MOMENT" ... and have no memory of what they had done 'wrong' ten minutes ago... how do they remember how to 'sit', 'stay' and so on? Why do they go and sit at the top of the stairs when I start cooking dinner, knowing that means Dad will be home soon?
Or... if one has an accident inside... the guilty one skulks out of the room with it's tail between it's legs? Even when I have said NOTHING at all... just looked at them?
Maybe I have it wrong? Maybe they didn't know why I was angry? Or maybe, just maybe ... they bloody well did know.
Seeing as they can't speak, I will never know. And nor do you.
ABOVE: Dante is still getting used to Keera. He really isn't sure about her AT ALL! Whereas Keera would just LOVE to play with him. Only she can't, cos all she wants to do it poke him in the eye. lol
CLEO: I am using http://www.feedly.com as my new reader. It imports your Google Reader contacts, so you don't even have to do it yourself. BUT I have found it does miss some, cos I've had a few emails asking why I havn't visited a particular blog and realised it hasn't been imported by Feedly after all.
So ... check.
I had hundreds of blogs on my Reader list... but some are private, some don't blog often or at all now... so it's still taking me time to catch up with any that have been missed.
Like I have time to do that! I tell ya, now that Steve, Bex and Dante live here, and Lacy and Keera are just up the road, I find so many OTHER things to do now... like cluck over babies. Who wouldn't???
AND let's not forget I now have a sewing 'buddy' too! No more lonely sessions in me sewing 'room'. Bex is great company and I do believe she is enjoying my help and company too.
Well I bloody hope so!
Right, better go and make those lunches, and get a load of washing on too...
I've spent the morning doing odd jobs around the house...and shortly I will head out to the Hospice Shop.
I also want to pop into the local Hospice Shop here in The Gardens.
Their shop was given a re-vamp, so I want to check it out.
I'll be back after work...
WE HAVE TREASURE!....
ABOVE: Just had to buy it! I ♥, ♥, ♥ blue glass, and this vase? is gorgeous!
ABOVE: Fish! I love anything nautical... so these two fish had to come home.
ABOVE: And finally, this really lovely PINK shirt for GRIFFIN.
He is not too sure he should be wearing PINK... so girls...
PLEASE TELL HIM HOW AWESOME HE LOOKS, AND IT'S NOT SISSY, OR GAY TO BE WEARING PINK!
He doesn't believe me or Bex.
I faced a real CHALLENGE this afternoon at work.
The boss (Debs) went and bought a big bag full of HOT CHIPS for afternoon tea.
And I sat there ... with them eating them in my face... and I did not even have one!
It wasn't that easy I can tell you, I was bloody hungry and hot chips give off the most delicious aroma.
RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE. *sob*
End of Day: and I'm very glad I didn't go for a walk this morning, cos I'm totally knackered this evening. Time to hit the sack.
OH, and Griffin is feeling better about the pink shirt now!
Thanks girls for boosting his confidence, he got a real kick out of you all saying such nice things about him. You all ROCK.
