Well... I've seen a rug (or 3) that I really like in Hamilton... so today Stew, Brylee, Griffin and I are going to Hamilton.
We haven't been down there for a while, so, as it's back to work for Stew tomorrow, we thought it would be nice to go down today, get out of the city and have a nice day trip away.
I'm hoping to find a rug in a cream/taupe colour that will go in the lounge in place of the RUG FROM HELL...'The Never Ending Shedder'.
Last night's pie:
I still haven't found a place for them in the kitchen. I'll have to figure that out soon I suppose, they can't live on the bench forever.
Right, I better go and see if we are ready to leave for Hamilton soon or not. No hurry I suppose.
We don't expect to catch up with any family members while in Hamilton, though I might text Russell and see if he's still not at work... he broke his wrist a while ago. We might be able to see him?
Kelly will be working and Amanda... well we don't see her anymore. Her choice.
Having fun in Hams!
Got TWO new rugs... had lunch with Russ and Ange and Taylor. Found new boots to DIE FOR!!! Now Stew is choosing shoes cos second pair are half price. Gotta love bargains!
YAAA... home after a lovely day out and about in Hamilton.

ABOVE: Our TWO new rugs, a matching pair. The rug from hell is gunna be going in my bedroom, once we move back into it at the end of the year.
The other lounge rug will be going into the family room at the end of the year as well.

ABOVE: the weather on the way home was ABYSMAL! And we saw lightening too. Second day in a row we've had a lightening storm.
ABOVE: I couldn't resist these two melamine trays ... to add to my collection. The Fantails are just gorgeous, and so are the Kiwi.
I saw an advert in a magazine two weeks ago, advertising ankle boots. I saw some I utterly loved, but could not find them anywhere here in Auckland, and had given up on finding any.
Then, while we were at Chartwell Square, we passed Hannahs and Stew said we should look in there, as the shoes were advertised as being at Hannahs. So ... we went in, and they had them!
I fully expected them to be uncomfortable ... cos I loved them so much... but they were not. So, I got a pair, and as they had a sale on, where you could get a 2nd pair of shoes for half price, Stew got a new pair of casual shoes too.
ABOVE: what do ya think of them? The detail is stitched on, so can't fall off had it been beads.
I will not be wearing them yet. I have decided I shall NOT wear them until I have lost 10 kilos.
They shall be my 'reward'.
