A SuesDay on a Tuesday that is!! And a solo one at that. With Sue playing Island girl for 10 days it was me, Nigella no friends!! It was a toss up with doing the housework or going out op shopping. Hard choice I know that I mulled over in a nano second!! Sod the housework, it'll still be waiting for me tomorrow. But then tomorrow I will more than likely go see my mate Dawn the Pottery Queen.
But before I could even head out the door I had a parcel arrive, this wicked as jacket I got off Trade Me!! Totally stoked with it, brand new and scrumdiddlyumshish for sure. I had to wear it out.
My first port of call was the couriers because they left a card saying they had called here yesterday while I was at my Monday Funday Job. I had a sneaky suspicion it was going to be my fur shrug. So housework was so far down my "things to do today list".
Must say I am pretty happy with it and could have done with it yesterday as I wore my leopard print tights to work. Maybe next week!! Quite like it with my stripes.
Then there were my rather high wedge shoes I got from Trade Me that did turn up yesterday.
My photo isn't the best work I have done but you get the general idea of what they are like. High, so I shall probably fall off these ones.
Enough of what arrived in the post.
Found this soft as Alpacca poncho with a hood that I shall probably never wear because hoods tend to make me look like I live in the wrong country and should rename myself Suehard or something that rhymes like that. I have been wanting one of these for soooooooo long, because I owned one many moons ago. So warm, so soft, so very very lovely. And so very new and unworn, how convenient!! Oh and I will wear it, just not the hood.
I went to only 4 op shops today as I had planned on tackling the housework when I got home. But that hasn't happened because I needed to blog of course!!
I did manage to find these cool as labels to put on my preserves when I have produce to preserve. These are always hard to find so I grabbed them. Also found this ric rac lace stuff that I know will come in handy. I really should show you the sad state of my dumping ground I call my sewing room. I should be ashamed! but I'm not!
So the housework I will try my best to do before I go out to see Dawn. I cannot promise it will happen but it should do, it's out of control. Thank god friends visit me and not the state of my house!! Well I shall love you and leave you, and my parting photo is Lonnie my nieces little Jack Russel. Rather intrigued with the TV.
