Last night Brylee fell over the stair guard... ripping it out of the wall.
So, Steve cut out the affected gib board, and he will fix it tomorrow night no doubt.
Handy having a 'Bob the Builder' son!
ABOVE: He swept the gib plaster mess into the kitchen and sucked it up with the central vac. Shame I now have to wash the floor. *sigh*
I'm going to look at maybe getting a gate at the top of the stairs. Not sure yet, it will depend on cost... like always.
I love Fridays. It means the weekend is almost here and Stew will be home. I like having him home.
Tonight we are hoping to go into the 'city' and see Nannette and Brad. They are over from Tazmania and are going on a New Zealand cruise, embarking on the ship on Saturday night.
So, all going well we will catch up with them tonight for dinner.
Poor Nannette was not too impressed with Queen Street! Dirty. And too many eateries all of the same ilk... Chinese/Asian... so if we go out tonight it will be to Wildfire, http://www.wildfirerestaurant.co.nz/ .
We have been there before and found it amazing.
So, for today? Housework, wash the bloody floors, then maybe I should pop out and get something for Griffin's birthday... it's on
Then after his birthday, it's Dante's 1st Birthday in December, then all my big kids birthdays in Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, June ... and of course Mike's was just yesterday in Nov. It's just one after the other around here... and that's not even adding in all the other grandkids, or Stew's in Jan too.
It's been a about a week now that I've not had 'Word Verification' on my blog... and for some reason I have not been bombarded with SPAM!!!
I can only put it down to my having changed the Comment Location to 'Embedded'. If this is the case and YOU are getting lots of Spam... try doing what I did.
I used to get HUNDREDS of Spam comments every day, that's why I put on Word Verification. But now? Hardly any at all. Gotta love that.
Right, I'm off to make a start on the day...
Poor Bex. She got up early today so she could take Dante to Playcentre, and when she got there (on opening time) she found no one was there. So she sat in the car with Dante for 10 minutes, but still no one turned up, so she came home again.
And Dante went to sleep so she's now gone back to bed feeling annoyed.
Thanks for that Lacy... though I would have realised my mistake about saying the wrong day at some point! I do know when his birthday is.
Floors are washed. Back is now killing me. Might just have to sit down for a bit.
Wow I've been fairly quiet today! But it's because I've been sewing... of course.
Tonight's plans have been shelved in favour of 'Brunch' tomorrow. Parking in the city on a Friday night? Didn't think it was a good idea after all.
Now... here's what I've managed to get done today:
ABOVE: doesn't seem much...but it does take time to cut our bindings, iron, sew on etc.
Now I'm taking a break ... cos I've got to unpick one... I made a boo boo. *sigh*
Some people call unpicking 'reverse sewing'... I just call it a bloody pain in the butt!
Well..., I've finished a few more of the mug rugs this evening. So I'm happy.
End of Day: looking forward to tomorrow, having 'brunch' with the Tart from Tasmania.
