Wow christmas is just over a week away..is it me or did this year just fly by??
I have all christmas shopping done other than $ but can do that anytime..so will do next week when I take money out to finish up the christmas food...we do it different over here because it is summer we mainly do salads, with ham/chicken etc...so not a hot lunch...it is usually to hot here for that....I am hoping to go to the markets next week to get all our fruit/vegies and fish/prawns (yes they have a fish shop there and they fish daily and bring them to the shop/market...it is also much cheaper..just not real convinient.
My nephew is still working on his licence hours, my DD is waiting to see if her insemination worked, hubby got through his day surgery and is finally feeling a little better, the dog has its stitches out and is healing great, the car didn't need a service just needed to be reset so they did that and didn't charge us anything and we got a new lining on the car roof as it was starting to sag so that set us back $350...other than that not much has been happening here just regular appointments and staying busy...finally starting to get some sunny weather so things are starting to grow in the garden but don't think we are going to get much this year...only time will tell.
I ordered a new bottom think for our yard edger..it is a tough one as the one we have always runs out of twine stuff when I use it...so I'm hoping this one works better...I ordered one for our neighbor as well as he has always mowed and edged our yard since we first moved in..without asking or anything...we just come home or hear something out the front and here he is doing our yard...they are such nice people..so I bake them banana bread..bought them big bags of candy for halloween and have also ordered a family game for them for christmas...
Also got our aldi fone plans in today so setting them up and that will save us $612 a year..have been waiting for them to have the sale again only have it a few times a year here....feeling positive and know that next year will be a better year for us...especially financially...and it's on 17 days till 2023😬
