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.

So I finally got a sports camera

and no, it's not a $599 Go Pro, with an additional $200 touch screen back.
It's actually a $150 Evo 1080 HD with a touch screen back, with IR remote, which also does photos and car mode.
So this morning I go out early, for my usual McDonalds Coffee, then muck around a bit until it's time to pick up and a 1 meter extension handle so I can do "selfies".

It's also ANZAC day when we pay tribute to all out war dead. It was good to see the crowds out to remember the sacrifices of our fallen, and those that served our country in combat.

Again for my second outing with daughters Avon make up - which is to light, but I still had fun, just wish I could photo shop the movie to make me look younger and prettier, like the girl I sat next to for my cup of tea, who had a shear blue shirt showing her pretty black bra and belly ring (between you and me, I really liked the way her black bra curved down her breasts and stopped a tanned & toned mid rift - not that I was paying much attention while trying to read the news paper)

Appologies for the video compression, not sure what the blog site did to the file.

Post birthday brunch

It's been a long couple of weeks and my lovely wife got me the red winter coat I've always wanted from Glassons and while it looked nice on me in male mode, it didn't sit so well once I had some lady lumps plus it was far to hot for New Zealand Autumn weather. I returned it and have now allocated the funds to the second item on my wish list - a 1080HD sports action camera (yet to purchase).

Last week I did manage to buy a nice pair of $10 leggings (black and white Aztec pattern) and have been wearing them at home most evenings.
Good Friday started as a hot day, so I put on my favourite summer dress and did the house work. I also tried bouncing Miss 14 out of bed at 10.30am as the washing machine kind of woke her and I felt like annoying her (just because it was my turn to annoy her at last). Being a teen, she grumbled and fell back to sleep.
Saturday morning, and with Miss 16's supply of Avon make up, I actually used Primer, Foundation and a Powder. It took about 30 minutes to get ready as opposed to my usual 10 minutes and then I was ready for McDonalds coffee.

At 9am I meet up with Josie for a lovely breakfast at Syliva Park Shopping Centre, but before it arrived from the kitchen, a large gathering had started near us. I mentioned to Josie we should perhaps move up a table to allow the group more room, some of the group noticed and thanked us and after a brief conversation were singing "Happy Birthday" to me - I would have turned a few shades red had it not been for all the make up on :)

After breakfast we did a little clothes shopping where we both tried on a few outfits. The mall is quite long as are Josie's strides, so I felt like I had jogged a mile by the time we got back to our cars. I was having so much fun and had hardly noticed how busy the mall had gotten during our shop, so hopefully we got away before either of us were recognised.

Sorry about the image, had to push the exposure through a photo editor due to lots of back lighting

Quick coffee

A couple of weeks in man time, and it's driving me mad.
Plus I've had a cold that long and while I've been meaning to have a day off work to help recoup, work has just been to busy. Today was also busy but with only 4 hours sleep, lots of driving followed by nose dripping on clients was low on my to do list, so instead, today turned in to a sleepy day with an hour out to get a coffee (and quick trip to groccery store). The school kids, had a 1/2 day today, I found out when one of the boyfriends arrived just after getting my make up off.

The weather has been fab these last 2 weeks, with Sunday, on combat fields, full camo, shooting the heck out of anybody in range of my airsoft gun, being like in desert heat. Bloody insane fun and brought back memories of my military days
Wednesday and still full of cold.
I was hoping to go to the mall to buy a red coat for my birthday, but seeing all the young males loitering around the mall entrance, I decided to just go to the grocery shop and have a relaxing coffee before heading home for another sleep.
Thanks, now if you could just move out of the phot..... to late

Okay, she's gone, now for that photo
