This morning I went and picked up and paid for some plants from a lady I have got to know through trade me. She grows such lovely things and is very reasonably priced, which makes me a good customer.
When I got home I potted them up in a huge pot that I was given by my friend Robyn - THANKS SWEETIE!!! Actually she gave me quite a few big pots, which means I need to get more plants!
While I was out I stopped in at a shopping mall to get my watch strap fixed at the jeweler that I originally purchased it from. I had time to kill while it was being fixed so I had a look in a few of the shops. I found this frock on 50% off and it was even marked down so only $7.50. Nice soft cotton with a bit of colourful embroidery at the neck. My watch was fixed for free, all he wanted was a SMILE, which was pretty easy to give to him.
I spent pretty much all afternoon mucking about in the back yard.
I had plenty of company - some were just visiting.
Others were residents.
I made sure the bird bath and all water bowls were topped up.
They are all appreciated.
And a must when it is so hot.
I shortened a pair of Harem pants today making them into long shorts and gave them a Vix make over. I added pom pom trim to the hem. I think I will be doing this to another pair tomorrow!!
I spent a good hour late this afternoon watering all my pots...
...and all the garden out the back.
Now it is RAINING outside!
Which is great because we could certainly do with it.
This is called a Chameleon Dress made by an NZ designer. These sell for quite a few hundred dollars new. I have lusted after these for a couple of years but baulked at the price tag. Patience pays off if you wait long enough and use trade me. I managed to pick this up for $70 and pretty dam pleased I tell you. Completely reversible wrap around frock. I can wear it anytime of the year, you just wait and see!!
TOF is away with work for a few days so I have been having non grown up dinners. Last night was Potato Chips or Crisps for you English folk, with beer, followed with ice cream. Tonight was Hot Cross Bun Bread toasted with home made blueberry jam, with beer, followed with ice cream. Then there is the best ever dip on the left, divine on plain crackers, with beer, but not followed with ice cream. Every night is like a party night here, so THANKS for the Beerzies TOF, I will leave you a couple of cold ones in the fridge.
