All in a day’s work

Well I’m definitely tired tonight!  It’s been a big day… lots done though :)

First thing this morning we got a phone call to say that our firewood was on its way… yeehaa!!!  It’s just too darn cold in Rotorua to not have a fire going.  We bought 3 metres of wood… a combination of Douglas, boxwood & Gum. 

The delivery was EASY!!  Just back up the truck, click a button and there it all was.  Then we had to stack it all away… but with three of us working on it the job was actually done in 35 minutes :)

After that we went to town and dropped Mikayla off at the hairdressers for a trim… she looks really cute with her new haircut :)

Miss Krystal and I ticked off all the jobs on my list (thank goodness for that list!!!) and then we went shopping for her birthday present.  She really wanted a nice coat/jacket and some boots for winter… and that’s where the day just went  WRONG!!! 

Poor Krystal has a really hard time buying shoes because not only is she a size 11 she also has quite wide feet (her fathers’ fault!!) there were simply no boots to fit her today!  And as for the jacket… ‘no I don’t like that one’, ‘that’s alright but I don’t like the colour’, ‘they don’t have this in my size’… etc etc  after several tedious and frustrating hours we called it quits!!

So tonight we have a fire going with the new wood… I’m resting my very sore feet (size 9 in case you were wondering LOL) and Miss Krystal has gone to see her boyfriend for dinner.

The best part is… tomorrow my sister and her daughter (Miss L) are coming over and they’re staying the night!!!  Miss L is SOOO excited about having a ‘girls only’ time at Auntie’s :)   Auntie’s pretty excited too!!
