Last night, for all of about 2 minutes, I deleted my blog.
I just get so angry with things that I can't change.
You can thank Steve, Bex and Stew for my blog still being here. I really was going to stop blogging.
Sometimes I think my life would be so much easier without having a blog. Without worrying about who is reading it, or who is getting all crabby about stuff on it.
BUT... As Steve and Stew said, I should not let the few ruin what the majority enjoy. So... I'm still here.
There IS going to be a few 'noticeable changes' on my blog though. I will not say what they are, I will wait and see how long it takes to be obvious. In the next few weeks I'm sure it will be noticed.
TODAY? I'm going to the mall. I am posting a CD to Sandra down in Palmy of her 50th Birthday party.
Not sure what else I shall get up to, but fabric might just feature. Fabric is like chocolate to me now.
I love it. And it doesn't have any calories at all!
Before that, a couple of photos:
Let me assure you, there's more in boxes in the wardrobes... poor things.
But, they are getting a new home built for them very soon. Then Sandra and Neil will actually have a lounge.
ABOVE: my lunches will consist of rice and meat, with fresh veges added on the day. I love Rice Risotto. We hadn't had any in YEARS, but I tried some about a month or so ago and yep, it's lovely. I add a few more herbs/spices, onions and meat, and it's just delicious.
Clearly I'm not doing 'low/no carb'. This is what works for me.
ABOVE: Last night Dante tried his first ever baby Hot Dog. I think he liked it once it had cooled down.
ABOVE: progress on the Ballerina for Rena.
What do you think Kelly?
Last time I was grocery shopping with Stew I spotted these delicious looking bagged Brussel Sprouts. I ♥LOVE♥ Brussel Sprouts!
This is how Stew sees them:
ABOVE: Yep, those were his exact words! Pffffft.
Right... time to bugger off and do something productive... or go shopping.
Well... I haven't been to the mall yet. I decided to bath the dogs. It's a beautiful sunshiny day, so they will dry fast.
Now I have to clean 'dog' off me before I go out.
Our son Mike is up here in Auckland with his Netball team, they are playing in the National Competition. He text me at lunchtime, and told me he had 'fucked his ankle' and wouldn't be playing any more!!!
I've not been able to contact him since then, so I don't know how bad his injury is. I just hope like hell he's not in hospital getting his ankle set in a cast again.
He's had a broken ankle before, and it took months to heal. I hope he's ok.
So... I rang around all over the city, trying to track down Mike. I rang both Indoor Netball venues, the motel and Mikes Team Captain? Left messages everywhere.
And finally Jade, Mike's team captain rang me back. Apparently Mike's rolled his ankle, it's not broken.
Huge relief there. But I was mad as that Mike had not elaborated when he text me, and told me more. I was worried sick. So... I told Jade to give Mike a slap around the ears for me.
When Jade caught up with Mike, he told him he had to RING HIS MOTHER! (I wonder if he slapped him for me?) lol
Mike was like "How the hell do you know my Mother?" and Jade said "Your Mum and I go waaaaay back!".
So funny, Mike was like "Really? How?".
So... all is OK. Mike probably can't play for the rest of the weekend, which is a shame after coming all the way up here from Palmerston North.
Dinner tonight is courtesy of Bex, mince/bacon/tomato stew with fresh breads.
End of Day: best evening in a while I must say.
More about that tomorrow, though it wasn't anything earth shattering ... just nice.
