A DROP, A YARN BOMB AND ARE THESE FLOWERS LAVENDER?

What do ya do when you get a big, fat drop of paint on your tablecloth?

ABOVE:  you turn it into a heart and call it intentional.  Works for me.  *smiles*


ABOVE:  a huge tree in the Devonport shopping centre... yarn bombed!  It's awesome.

Also in Devonport, in the gardens there:

ABOVE: This gorgeous little flower.  I think it's lavender, but not one I've seen before.  I have only seen lavender that grows on a bush.  These ones were just little plants.  Is it lavender?  

So, today I've got a little list of things to do.
Pick up our exercycle from storage.
Get a new light bulb for the lamp in the lounge.
Get some oasis and fake plants for the little basket I bought yesterday.
And that's about all I think.

At some point I have to name all of Griffin's school  uniform.  I need to get it done or he will NAG me to death about doing it.
He's such a nag that boy!  I could throttle him sometimes.

So, that's me for now.

Catch ya later...

ONWARD...

Wow, I didn't realise I'd not been back here all day!
Well... we have been busy.

First off Stew and I went over to the storage facility and brought back a few more smaller items.

Then we went to Sylvia Park with Brylee and Griffin and had lunch.
And I finally caved in and bought another flower arrangement from the place we got the pretty lilac wreath and little posy before Christmas:


WELL... I would show you ... but am having internet connection issues?  I'll try again later.
Finally got the photo up!  Isn't it pretty?

After coming home, it was so hot I jumped in the cold spa pool and then worked on me tan.


It is stinkin' hot again today.  The guys are so pissed it rained out the cricket yesterday, yet it's stunning again today.  Typical.


Fixed it, but now me wireless keyboard has stopped working. Grrrr. Need Steve to sort it out ... it's not the batteries.


End of Day:  Steve reckons it IS the batteries.  Sigh.  So I'm using my laptop now... so strange having to type on it!
I'm melting ... it is so hot and humid.

  2. Get Griffin to do his own naming - it will give him something to do.
