What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived.
It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Busy day

Such a lot to do, so little time

First thing - COFFEE

Second - pick up parcel from courier company (daughters trendy t-shirt)
3rd to early for shops so a quick change of tops and a photo op around rose garden and museum


4th - head to St Lukes Shopping center to check their fashion range

In town at K rd. In just 10 hours after my coffee this place is going to be crowded with trans gendered people and other spectators as we have the LGBT gay parade this evening (the rainbow flag symbolizes the LGBT community).
But I'm just here waiting for 10 am so I can buy a pressure gauge from a surplus shop.


The day is getting hot and humid, so a quick change to something cooler before heading to Bunnings to get parts to connect my new gauge to the house water pipes.

Days blurring into routine

I really need something new
Weekdays is work, after hours is house renovations, weekends is renovations.

That leaves me with 2 or 3 hours in the early hours of 1 weekend day.
For coffee followed and a gym workout
It might have been raining for the last 2 days, but it's still muggy hot here.


I really feel the need to do something a bit more OUT going

quiet weekend

Thursday 1st Feb.
I've got a bit of time off as we have a public holiday on the 6th, so I decided to add a few days of annual leave (we get 20 days per year) to really enjoy our public holiday.
So Thursday I did an hour at the pools

And followed that up with some late night shopping at a busy Sylvia Park shopping mall (we have had a few days with wild weather, storms, rain, blistering heat, but this night was good for stockings and boots).

The weekend however, was days in the bush, tramping, growing a beard, seeing great scenery and testing my $70 drone

getting a bit warm

Not sure about you, but my make up melts around 25 C, which means if I want to be outside much after 9.00 am, I can't wear make up. It's at those times you need to know which shops have good air conditioning.

I had a great evening drinks on Saturday with my girlfriend, but due to the heat I was in boy mode (shorts and tee shirt).
I got invited out to the "Big Gay Out" as we soon start a week of gay, lesbian, transgender celebrations. I don't think I'm really in to that scene, although I do empathize with some of the issues these people go through

I really needed some girl time as my stress levels were sky rocketing
Sunday I had a few hours to myself (ie 7 am until 9 am), just enough time for coffee at McDonalds, read my book and too get more plumbing stuff from the hardware.

First couple of photos are specially for you, certainly not something I would normally wear in general public even though I got a lot of smiles, but at 8 am, the sun is getting hot and I need air conditioning.


 Bunning hardware, of course I'm not going in with such a see through top, like I said that was for you, not the general public, but I do like the feeling of the tights so I'm not swapping out of them. 
I went to the pools at a neighbouring suburb just after 9 am, there were only about 4 of us in the lane pool. I turned up in my blue high waisted jeans, pretty bra and thin black tee before getting changed into my usual blue one piece swimsuit. An hour later I turned up at my first appointment for the day and it was one of the 4 ladies and was leaning against the side watching everyone else, when I got in.

STATUS:  multiple muscle failures (knotted) and busted knee after spending yesterday fitting new floating wooden floor slats.
Attempted remedy - attended gym this morning for cardio and work faulty muscles but all that did was make my purple 3/4 tights, push up bra, sports bra and breast forms sweaty.
Showered and changed into skirt and t-shirt, but still to hot for underwear or make up during my coffee stop.

Spent the next few hours away from the build, doing a father-daughter adventure playing mini-golf with my youngest.
