Monday 14th February

Yet another excuse to have a drink!!

Well my houseguests have departed for a week or so to see some more of Oz and NZ (visiting other friends), so this has given me time to clean up all the empty booze bottles, and do all that horrible stuff that we like to put off while we have guests.....washing, ironing, vacuuming etc.

On an embarassing note, the weather has been lovely since Steve & Helsy have flown out, but on a happier note, it's going to be warm and sunny when they get back (Thursday), right through the weekend and into next week.

This is extremely good news as we will be doing lots of outdoorsy things over the weekend so at least we won't need our brollies!!

Alana has had her first "date". She went over to her new found friend Dylan's place on Saturday, and by all accounts she had a great time. We even got given a photo album with photos of the day so that she can remember it!!

The lighting is now finished. The Electrician came over on Saturday to finish putting in the last lot of downlights and the Chandalier...and can I say how fantastic it looks. Even better than I thought. I've taken a photo, so will put it up when I get home.

So now we need to get the plastering done (the Electrician has a mate!) then paint the back area. We get our new couches delivered mid April for the rumpus room, so now we need to think about the kitchen and flooring. Bank balance is slowly depleting!! Just as well Nick's now got a job!!

Nick seems to be enjoying his job...he's getting to know the streets of Melbourne very well (also where all the Police Stations are) and is collecting lots of "stuff".

I've done something that I've never done before. I got my eyebrows waxed. I've always been the tweezer girl, which takes forever and never gives me the same looking eyebrows, so on Saturday while I was getting my bits waxed, I enquired about getting my eyebrows done at the same time. Before I could even blink, it was done...and quite painless too. Don't know why I haven't had it done before now, probably just becuase it was going to cost me money! Oh well, all done now, and I must say that they look good too (modest aren't I??).

More snow expected in Surrey shortly I hear? Enjoy it!

Hope you guys have a lovely day today. Me......received tones of cards and flowers in the post! joking, just another today to me.

I'm so glad Nick's enjoying his job must be a wait off your shoulders.

I have never had my eyebrows waxed either - do you think it makes a big difference?

I know I haven't done much on natter natter but I was catching up last night so will post later. Sorry Jxx
