A Boody Cold Day And Shopping For Toys.........


Bloody hell have I been cold today when I woke up this morning I look at Tim snoring beside me and think why is he here, took a moment to remember that it is school holidays and he wasn't working today in fact he isn't working tomorrow either.

Anyway I got up got dressed put on some make up and left to go shopping yes I went shopping on a Monday I went to make a toy layby for Christmas, we can layby now and pay it off till Christmas Eve so it is a good idea. In fact I made 3 laybys 1 for me and 1 for Natasha and 1 for Jessica. I will help Jessica pay something off her layby and I will pay the one I made for Natasha in order to help them. Natasha's layby was only $50 but Jessica's was $210 and I will not be paying all that I will pay $50 off it for her though.

When I got home I thought how bloody cold is this house in fact I have been cold since getting home and had to go and change my clothes so I am now warmer and I know many of you maybe thinking put a heater on but hubby complains about me having the heater on so now something I am going to do.

Tim rang around getting prices for tyres for the car after ringing around 8 places he found somewhere that had them for $99 a tyre most of the places were between $150 & $200 a tyre so it pays to ring around. I remember when I met him he would just go to one place and didn't get shopping around he thought all places charged about the same so why bother...........lol

I was also annoyed when I got home this morning to find the kitchen a bloody mess but of course I said nothing no point I just unpacked the dishwasher and then repacked it and that made a big difference.

While I was out this morning I sent mum a text telling her were I was and reminding her to bring the Avon book and guess what she forgot she was meeting me....................lol But she also forgot she had an appointment with Dawson's Psychologist.................she did turn up before I left and we had a chat and she gave me the Avon book.

Anyway I have done some blog reading this morning well after I got home and now I have read the comments from yesterdays blog which was great and now I am posting this and then I am going to watch "The Weekest Link".

    You are organised starting your christmas shopping already.

    1. Warmer here today not sure how long it will last but I did all the washing and got it out on the line. Yes layby is a great idea my girls didn't get it when they were younger but they now layby themself. Christmas is expensive so anything you can do to make it not bite so much is worth it.....

  4. As much as I hate the heat we have now, I understand what you are saying. I also dip into anemia, and that makes the cold even more acute. I hope you warm up soon. May your body be as warm as your heart already is~

  7. You know, don't you, that the price of one bottle of wine will heat you house for several days. Something doesnot add up there.

    1. No I didn't know that but since I don't drink wine I don't think it would work for me........lol

    2. What I meant....Tim drinks a bottle of wine....the price of that wine, will heat your house for several days. something does not add up there. Turn up the heat and let him go without for a day.

  8. I love your charming expressions, and I'm wondering where you live. We call "laybys" layaways where I'm from in Washington State in the Pacific NW.

    1. I don't think it matters if you say layby or layaway what matters is that you do it and don't end up trying to find the money for presents in December....
      am I right or am I right.........lol

  9. wELL, you're certainly getting well organized in time for Christmas, aren't you?! But it really is a very good idea, to spread the payments like that. After all, it is July now, so half the year has gone. It will be Christmas before we know it! LOL!! It's flipping cold here as well, as it's supposed to be mid-Summer. I popped out this morning and had to wear my boots with socks. It's not good enough! I should be in cropped trousers and sandals. Hey ho!

    1. Well since we are in the middle of winter now I guess it is suppose to be cold.......lol Yeah Christmas will be here before we know it the older we get the faster the time seems to go by........lol

  10. Its meant to be summer here at the moment but it feels more like winter as it rains most of the time and like you I feel like I'm sat in a freezer. My mum and husband are like Tim in that they think its hot even when its really cold. My husband just wears a jumper in winter, I can't cope.

    1. I don't get how some people seem to not feel the cold but then I guess that is because I do feel it and I also feel the heat when it is hot and Tim doesn't either really there is something wrong with that man........lol Today it isn't as cold except when the door is open as there is a bloody cold wind blowing outside

  11. I'd trade with you. I love the cold and hate the heat and they're saying 106 F today! Awful!! Yup! I'd trade you.

    We call them layaways here in the Upper Midwest US, too. You are certainly organized to be thinking about Christmas already. Now you got me thinking about making Christmas cards...

    Have a really nice day and stay warm. :)
