By the end of the working day, both Stew and Steve will be on holiday for 3 weeks.
They are both hanging out for it too.
I am looking forward to having them both home too. It will be neat for Dante to get to spend heaps of time with his Dad and Granddad.
Today I'm going over to Botany to try and find the missing kitchen cupboard door...
Might be a good excuse to visit Botany Town Center too. *smiles*
NOT that I/we need anything, but ya never know... ya might find a last minute extra gift for someone.
Random : When people react in a negative/defensive way, one has to wonder why? Do they feel they have something to be defensive about then? Food for thought.
Counting heads, how many do you expect for Christmas dinner?
Last count here (last night) we will have just 12. Sad it's not more.
Who's got more? Lots more? Or less? I hope no one is alone on Christmas Day!
Sometimes I wish it was just me and Stew, on the beach with fish 'n' chips! But then it wouldn't be Christmas would it?
Moving on... I better get the washing on. Steve fixed our washing machine, did I tell you? So awesome. I was worried we would have to buy a new machine, and at this time of year that would have been a bit annoying!
Next big expense will be kitting the kids out for the new school year, and Griffin needs a full new uniform! What fun.
So. I'm down in the garage and I look up... and there it is! That freakin' cupboard door!
ABOVE: been looking for it for three days and it was right there in plain sight all that time. Grrrrr.
Now. Do I still go to Botany for a browse around? Hmmmm.......
Well, we went to Bunnings and bought more paint for the cupboards as I only had a small test pot.
the test pot is the 'wrong' sort of paint for the cupboards (wish they'd told me that BEFORE I painted the entire door with it!), so I got enough of the 'right' paint to do the entire kitchen.
I also got a contrasting paint to use on some of the drawers/cupboards. I hope it looks nice once I've done it!
I will show you once I've done a few.
Kelly and her friend Amanda are due here soon. They are coming up for the Katy Perry concert, and staying here overnight. I had thought of going myself, but they have tickets for the 'mosh pit'.... and that's just ain't my scene at all!
Not that I'm quite sure what a bloody 'mosh pit' is. LOL
Lunch time. Toasted sandwiches today. Off to feed me face and watch Home and Away from yesterday.
TRACY!!!! COME TO MINE! We would love more here!
So Kelly and her friend Amanda arrived, they fluffed around getting their hair/face/clothes all ready then I took them to the train station to go into town.
Stew is picking them up after the concert.
I hope they have an awesome time.
End of Day: a busy day, lots of fun. Time to wind down before bed.
