On our anniversary my DH brought me a washing machine, now you may think this an odd present but its been a few weeks since my old machine died and I have been washing in the bath tub after the evening showers, my bit for water conservation. So I can honestly say that I REALLY appreciate my new machine!
DD was part of the school team for the local truck pull which took place on the 11th. They really gave it their all and I was informed that they practised with the truck full of water and the tyres half flat. Turns out that it paid off, they won 1st place in the primary school section.

Today whilst I was in town yet again, I called into the paint shop for a friend and while there I brought a tin of paint to finish my laundry. I started this sometime ago (not quite a year, I think?) and was using the paint I had on hand. I've actually painted 3/4 of it three times with different shades but end result I was't happy with it and prompty moved onto something else. So its my aim to have it finished by the end of the school holidays. This will work out just fine as I need to be in hearing distance as DH has just returned from hospital after having an operation and has been sentenced to bed for a few days.
