Goodness me this year is just racing by – surely it can’t be April already!
Now that’s we’ve switched back from daylight savings and it’s finally getting cold overnight, I’m having a lot more trouble getting out of bed in the mornings. I didn’t wake up until 6.30am and lay in bed chatting with Kevin and patting the dogs before finally getting up 15mins later. I hopped on the scales and was happy to see most of my Easter gain was gone :-). I SHOULD have done a workout this morning but I niggled my ankle yesterday and am going out with Amy today so didn’t want to stress it any more.
Instead I let the dogs out in my new slippers…
and made a cup of tea which I enjoyed with a banana goji berry muffin which I enjoyed as I replied to some comments on recent posts and checked out my favourite blogs.
Around 8am I went back upstairs to shower and get dressed for the day. I also straightened the bedrooms. Then I got the dishwasher unpacked and organised tea for the car. Christy had a girls day out with Nanny, so Amy and I had own girls days out.
Tea in hand we headed off…
passing Nan, Pop and Christy who were taking the dogs for a walk…
We drove up to Miranda were we did some serious shopping. Amy was so excited about this new “skull top” that she had to go and change right away.
We made a new discovery for lunch – Salsa’s mexican. I had the Vego Taco and Amy had the kids burrito. Talk about yummy! I’ll definitely be eating here next time….and maybe the time after that :-).
We then went to the movies to see The Last Stand. Amy had already seen it with a friend last week but was happy to see it again. Such a good movie. I really enjoyed it, except for the noisy teenage girls behind us.
Next stop was the tea shop.
where we sampled some brews..
Amy bought some Chai loose leaf tea. I didn’t care for any that I sampled.
We visited a few more shops before visiting Sniggles (a great stationary shop). I bought some things for the girls for the trip.
Around 3.30pm we stopped at the Lindt Cafe for afternoon tea. I chose the strawberries and dipping chocolate again and Amy opted for a brownie sundae but we shared both of them.
Next stop was target where we got Amy (and Christy) some more clothes – Amy was needing some more items for Winter.
Hmm….do you think we bought enough today?
All I got was a couple of magazines, a nail polish and some earring. Kevin scored some underpants. The rest was for the girls!
It was nearly 5pm when we left which meant we got to enjoy the sunset on the drive home.
We arrived home just at 5.45pm to find Kevin & Christy hard at work…
I quickly made some dinner for us and the dogs. We just had a roast veggie pasta with jarred tomato sauce.
Then a spot of washing up before settling down on the couch to type up this post then watch some TV. In an hour or so I’ll head to bed to read the last few pages of the novel I couldn’t quite manage to finish last night.
