One sleep closer

We had a great day today - had muffins this morning. YAY - our local Muffin Break now have the tomato and basil muffins (3 sugar points saved for something else !!!!). Then I bought another pair of long denim shorts (off the rack and a perfect fit !!!) and a T-shirt that was on sale (it says Vintage Junior on the front - does that mean I am an old young person ????)
After that we went and got some groceries and popped into the library to pick up a Dan Brown book which they were holding for me. Got home and had a bread roll for lunch before getting ready to go and see Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat - what lovely memories it brought back for me. I remembered just about all the words - K was amazed that I knew them all and asked me when I had learnt them. I said that I used to listen to the record when I was a child and she said “How sad is that” - am not sure if she thought it was sad that I had listened to the record or the fact that I lived so long ago records were all we had to listen to !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After that we went to a BBQ with some friends and then popped in to see some other friends before getting home just after 11pm. Al went for a walk this morning and landed up walking around for nearly 8 hours - poor thing - it really is hard for him on the weekends. At least K and I have each other to do things with whereas he has to try to amuse himself each weekend.
When we were at Coles this morning I saw those bloody triple decker mint chocolates again - K said we should buy one to try it but I said if we buy one we will eat it all - she said “Isn’t that the purpose of buying it ?” - I said yes, normally it is but when it is so much chocolate it probably isn’t that good a purpose !!! Then we spied the little 7 square bars and I pounced on that quick smart. After we had a roll for lunch we shared the chocolate - boy am I glad we didn’t buy the big one !!!!! It would have been finished before very long. But, after having 3 squares of that chocolate, my folks bought a small bar of chocolate for us to have at the musical, so I had another 2 squares there. We had 2 chicken kebabs on a roll at the BBQ and I have just had 3 of the mini mars lite bars - all up I have had 8 points worth of chocolate today - so I am 1 ½ points over on my sugar this week. But, I am not going to worry about it too much - chocolate is not ‘bad’ food - it is just food I need to limit the quantity that I eat.
Emily mentioned the ‘weed-off’ we are going to have as soon as we get our camera back to show the before and after photos. Today, I have to say that I never even gave any household chores a thought - too busy shopping and going to the theatre and visiting friends !!! But, I will get to it as soon as we have our camera back and in working order.
Tomorrow we are going to take a walk to Paradise Point as my folks have their craft market there and then I need to get all the washing done before sitting down to do our tax returns. I need to shop again as I invited my folks over for dinner and then forgot to buy when I need when we were at the shops today - I suppose those chocolates are going to be calling me again when I am in there !!!!!!
Go the Tigers - well done to them for beating St George. Bad luck to the Eagles and good luck to the Cowboys !!!!
Take care everyone, have a great Sunday and be good !

TFTD : One way to open your eyes to unnoticed beauty is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before ? What if I knew I would never see it again ?”

TIAGF : Buying size 12 clothes off the rack that fit perfectly

Yippee for more new clothes! Sounds like you had a great day - meanwhile, poor Al wandering about all by his lonesome :-(

Don't worry about the weeding, I haven't made a start yet either - we have plenty of time.

I'd keep hush about the vintage bit. It must be sooo good being able to see what you like and buy it and know it looks good. Smaller size the better.
Ha, bet both you and Emily, just come in from gardening and mowing. Spring bulbs are still blooming and looks good. Even managed to half pie turn the vege garden, but that just about did me in. Poor Al, at least every day down is one closer till he's home. Sounds like you had a great weekend.

Good luck with the weed off :)
