Hellish week

At home, miss 14 thinks it's OK to leave her hair straightener on for 11 hours. I've only mentioned the hazard about 30 times and she was very upset to find the 3 pin plug missing. Would appear she thinks she has the human right to be stupid and if the house "accidentally" burned down, that's OK because it would be an "accident".

Miss 13 likes strawberries, but the bin is at least 2 rooms away, so the master bedroom carpet doubles as her bin, now the carpet has bright red pimples stained in.

Stressed to the MAX.......

Water leak..... Had to dismantle (break) the stairs at the rear of the house, lift the carpet, remove 3 feet of wall and replace 2 inches of pipe. I hope next weekend i can afford to rebuild everything

Mega Stressed....
Time to escape..........

First off, McDonalds for a nice coffee. It's 6 pm at Ellerslie and looks like the dinner peak has finished, probably a staff of 12 and about 40 customers. I had to visit the ladies first for a leak of my own and a make up check. Finally got my favourite tights back from Miss 14 and used only my pushup bra.

Mc Donalds, Elerslie

Relaxed now and a little hungry, I switched to bigger breasts (D cup) and visited Parnell, and after walking all the way down and back up the main drag, the restaurants were either looking boring or the good ones were fully packed out. I ended up visiting Newmarket and had a fab meal at the Turkish Cafe. While that was also packed mostly with attractive girls & ladies out for a nice Saturday evening, there was a couple of spare tables when I got there, so I was in luck.
Thanks guys, that was a great meal and so were the staff

Turkish Cafe, Newmarket
Unfortunately my finger nails (pre-glued from the $2 shop) were dropping by the minute, don't remember eating any. I'm guessing there is a trail of them up to Events Cinema where I discovered 007 was fully booked.
So I had a nice outing and decided to get back home to the family

Doctors visits

I'm finding myself at that stage in life that regular doctors check ups are required, but I'm not scared.

I recommend everyone in this age group, to have their medical checks !

Coffee Club brunch

Up early, 2 little sleepers in the living room as I snuck out.
Feeling a bit showy - shinny tights, shoe string top and heels, showing off my butt etc.
Think I applied to much foundation, face looks like it's had a spray tan.
Miss 14 took my favourite skirt last night, I didn't want her to as I had planned a discrete outfit with it for this morning. Unfortunately I couldn't say anything in front of her boyfriend.
So after days of planning what to wear, with THAT skirt out, I tried on plan B, C, D and ended up wearing plan E as seen below - a girl is allowed to change her mind!!!

Sitting at Mcdonalds, read the paper, taken a few photos for you...but it's still only 7am and the shop is getting busy. 2 hours time I'll be having brunch, hope I'm not under dressed.

8am and Kmart opens, shopping time
A browse through cosmetics and I find the mascara that all us girls have fallen in love with. At $30 I wonder if they can be part of a Christmas present. I know if I buy one for me, it will go missing within days.
Got to the clothing department, tried on a nice sheer black blouse, loved it, loved orange dress ($19) more...
Sorry about the focus, I think the camera focused before I stepped back out of the change cubical, hopefully you will see it soon - yes I bought it.

Anyway, back in to my earlier clothes and meet up with Josie at the Coffee Club, showed her my new dress, showed her my photos of the eclipse (copy on my photo page), chatted about home buying, clothes stores etc while we had a lovely breakfast.

On the way home, I had to stop at Repco car parts for a new rear wiper, the chap behind the counter cut it to the correct size for me to fit. The way everyone was checking me out, one would think hot women never went in there :)

I had such a lovely morning strutting around in tights, seeing Josie, etc, it was heart breaking to change back.

A week and a half is nearly to much

Family had a large gathering and BBQ last weekend, and with no movies I wanted to see, it's been a couple of weeks since I had any girl time.
Today I decided that after cooking the family dinner, to head out for a coffee - much needed as today I've been fasting and, due to one of the kids being sick, I didn't get much sleep last night.
Took out the Canon camera this morning and got some excellent photos of the (87%) solar eclipse, that really pushed my knowledge of my camera to a new level, glad I had the hand book.

Checked out K Mart found a lovely new dress (bright orange) but instead found a new black skirt for my wife. She only had 2 where as I have about 5, not include my daughters one in the photo below.
Really today's outing nearly didn't happen as I was enjoying cuddling my wife but knew she wouldn't wake for a couple of hours more, so I slapped on a little bit of foundation and lipstick and headed out.
For me to be out, using only 2 products from my supply is, while not unheard of, rare.
Bought a coffee and had just finished reading the newspaper when Josie turned up wearing a very stunning outfit that had me wishing I had something more eye catching on. I knew I should have got that bright orange dress
The news of the storm Sandy, has died down here now that we have seen the devastating pictures, and my heart goes out to those who homes and lives have been destroyed. Seeing the homes and roads etc, had the male part of me planning the rebuild and saw a task mammoth in it's undertaking, yet with the American spirit, I know it will be done.

Another relaxing morning
