Favourite quote

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.

Week of activity

Monday - managed to get in a swim, but only about 400 meters. While my boobs stayed in the correct place, I'm not keen on the slightly high cut hip line, doesn't quite feel lady like even though the fit serious female "club" swimmers in the adjacent pool wear them.
While it's true I have a thing for women's one piece swim suits, probably because I used to wear my sisters from the age of 8, I also have a thing for swimming and at the age of 11, did my first 2 Km swim and it also gives me the body shape I want and would probably still have, had I not injured my shoulder a couple of years ago, but today I found out I can now do the back stroke without pain.

Tuesday - I sat on my front deck with Miss 19 and her boyfriend who "doesn't know" in the pink tee shirt with pink push up bra (make me about a B cup) underneath and shiny black leggings, we had a great chat, ended up greeting a neighbour as he walked his dog and waving to the guy across the road. Guessing word about my dress sense will be common knowledge but doubt anyone will actually care.
By 6.30 pm torrential rain set in and by 8 pm the water had breached my roof gully and landing in a big bucket in my kitchen which needed emptying every 2 hours through the night.

Wednesday -  told the boss I needed a couple of hours off this morning to put a tarpaulin over the roof, decided to buy the tarp in girl mode, without make up as I had to get back to work ASAP, I also had a McDonald coffee in the newly refurbished building before heading home to scale the roof in the rain


One of the annoying things about putting a tarp over the roof in torrential rain is, while heavy rain storms are predicted for the next 5 days, it doesn't rain at all today or Thursday.

Thursday, another day to hit the pools, this time in a swim suit that I haven't worn in public for the last 10 years. I like how it shows every lump & bump and when wet it's quite shiny

Friday - The rain starts around 4pm, roof tarp working well, I suspect the problem in the splash back from the heavy flow in the valley, hitting the gutter, so all's well on the roof. 6 pm and my basement, where the big screen, surround sound, best couches are, is fully covered with about 1/3rd of an inch of water (160 - 200 liters) as the ground water pressure was to much for the brickwork.

My dog peed blood today, a $220 trip to the vets indicates he has bladder stones, so needing to find $1500 for an operation. God knows were the money will come from, I reckon I must be close to my max debt loading by now but still hoping to make a payment plan with the vet.

Weekend - no plans for girl time, want to put primer on my daughters car, cheaply modify the roof for the expected rain that should occur later today & Sunday
