What a start to the day

So I'm at an age where I need to go to the toilet 3 times a night, I'm sure the beers last night probably didn't help.. I also thought $35 worth of cocktails would help the wife to sleep, but she woke every time people walked past and when the car did a burnout down the road.

Anyway, 6am and when Miss 16 went to her friends to get ready for a party last night, she mentioned she was taking her makeup, forgot to mention "also quite a few of Rachels makeup".
My foundation is safe from her, and I found a mascara under the bed - so it's enough for me (my lipstick is safe in my handbag).

7.30am was coffee time at McDonalds, an attractive older woman walks in with family, I say attractive as she was wearing a tight red shoe string top over a large chest, looked like my sporty top, and sports leggings, I also have a pair. So basically she was wearing my "plan B" outfit and looking hot in it.
Unfortunately I was wearing a nice dark red top, and after taking a photo of me, realized how muscly  my arms look.
Still, the shops were starting to open.

Mitre 10, and time to check out some hardware for my R&D project, it's amazing how a $2 part can be used as a $150 part the alternative rig uses.

8.30am and time for a cup of tea and read of the newspaper at Syliva Park shopping complex. I had to take my muscly looking arms in to the ladies toilet once the shops opened before doing some serious window shopping -

Tried on 12 different outfits at different clothing shops, fell in love with 2.
One was a electric blue dress ($40), fitted like a glove to every curve and bump.
Dress number 2 was a $30 leopard print shoe string dress with ruffled hip - with my D cup forms this looked absolutely fabulous and while I strutted around the change area big mirror, while other people were  waiting, I walked out of the shop without spending a cent.

I really, really want that leopard dress -hopefully it will still be there next pay day.

Summer fun

Left home 6.30am early, before the Korean homestays wake up.
Decided to leave fully dressed to my car parked out the front of the house.
Felt lazy and 1/2 asleep, so a quick layer of foundation, a flick of mascara, and a lick of lipstick.
Bra, g-string, dress and I'm on my way

7am coffee at my ususal McDonalds, father and blond teen daughter customer are Sunday breakfast regulars.

8am sees me in Auckland city, checking out the boats. While I don't mind rich boat owners, I'm slightly impressed they would need a helicopter as well.

9am and I'm at Mission Bay, one of Auckland most popular "to be seen at" beaches and enjoyed the views as 2 attractive young ladies did yoga and a few others were in bikinis just finishing a swim.
Fountain, volcano, even a lighthouse all in one photo

It's not long, before I need another coffee, read the news paper, discover our gay / transgender festival is starting next week and runs until the end of Feb. - I'm not really in to that sort of stuff, but wife wants to see the big parade.
I might have outed myself, as about 200 people including spectators gathered for the start of a swimming race. I had quite a lot of nice people smiling at me.
Now if only I had my daughters camera, all these photos would be a lot better
