A VERY BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BEX TODAY!
We were supposed to be taking her and the family out to Yum Char for lunch.
But the bloody tummy bug from hell has put a screeching halt to that. Another time Bex. Sorry.
I'm sure we shall still have a nice day... but well.... This country is expecting a bit of a battering from Cyclone Lusi this weekend.
So no sunbathing it would appear.
Remember, I live in NEW ZEALAND, NOT Australia!
But shish... don't tell anyone who hates storms!
ABOVE: Friday morning's sunrise in West Auckland. That old saying "Red sky in morning, Shepherd's Warning, Red Sky at night, Shepherds Delight" would appear to be correct.
In between feeling bloody ill as a dog yesterday, I grabbed a few photos of Dante and the 'special' car...
ABOVE: Dante played with it for a little while... then he got his hands on my lens cap, and...
ABOVE: he was faced with the decision. Lens cap.... or car? Can you guess what won?
It wasn't the car! Funny little man.
ABOVE: The face of exhaustion. Still a bit pale around the gills. Poor kid had the bug bad. He spent hours vomiting. So glad I didn't get that bad.
The only two not to have caught the bug yet : Bex and Brylee! I hope they don't get it. It's a really nasty bug.
So, today? Quiet inside day I think. IF the storm arrives, I hope to get a few photos.
I'm also going to try and find some videos on You Tube about the new sewing machine.
I am so excited! It looks to have some really awesome stitches. I can't wait to try it out.
Well we are feeling so much better today. Sad we had to cancel our yum char lunch... but we will have some takeaways for dinner instead, Bex gets to choose.
The weather is as expected, nasty.
Well... nothing is happening around here! Everyone is just doing their own thing, watching TV, playing XBox, having a nap (ME) and staying dry. Outside it's been pissing down, though right now it seems to have stopped.
It doesn't even seem like a storm, just rain and a bit of wind. Boring really.
LYNDA: I just had a 'look' for that shop on Google Earth, and it doesn't look like it's there!
Google Earth might be out of date? I might give them a phone call to make sure they are actually there before I drive over. *smiles*
Thanks for the tip.
End of Day: got no energy, even after having a good lunch and dinner. Feel ikkk still. And it's a sad state of affairs when you simply don't want to answer your own phone for fear of being screamed at.
