Lazy days...

Today is one of those days where you don't bother getting dressed, and you do as little as possible...

Yesterday, Bryn and I went to Sienna's first birthday party, loads of fun! I drank far too much, haven't done that in a long, long time!!! Ate about 5 or 6 hamburger patties (from the bbq, not raw, LOL) and a slice of scrumptious Pavlova!!! Rolled home at about 6.30 ish, and headed straight for a big glass of water and the panadol (warding off the hangover I knew I would get otherwise, LOL)... Feel fine today, but still happy to be doing nothing...

Have been checking out ebay this morning for that lockable tv cabinet I've been promising myself for about 4 years now... (Geez, if I'd put away $10 a week for those four years, I could probably afford to get one custom made!) I want something upright, where the tv is high enough that I don't have to look down at it from my seat... We only have a small 41cm, so don't have to worry about finding a cabinet big enough... I really love those Balinese style cabinets, but mostly they are all selling in Brisbane and Sydney - eek! would hate to calculate shipping from there!!! Don't want to pay over $200 because the courier will probably cost me another $100, and I want something solid! Also, has to fit in with our other furniture, most of which is pine stained with either rosewood or mahogany, though we have some rubberwood as well... Gee, I'm not picky, am I?!

Dave thinks I'm crazy. He can't see why we NEED a lockable tv cabinet (of course, I haven't told HIM I plan to hold the keys to the tv cabinet, thus stopping him from constantly plying the boys (especially Luey) with DVDs in order to pacify them, but maybe he has an inkling and is worried he might have to actually parent without the aid of DVDs and morning tv, LOL!!!

So, anyway, I *think* I've found what I'm looking for... It's Balinese, in Melbourne (though not sure where, if it's too far away I'm not going to bother), a beautiful mahogany colour, upright, it's even a corner unit (was specifically asking for one, but suits us perfectly as our Great Cathode Ray God like to hold court from the corner of our loungeroom... ATM it is only on $100, with 4 days to go... I'll just keep watching it for now, see if it attracts any bids...

I can already picture it in the corner of our loungeroom though with my leather chair in front of it, hehehe. That said, I won't go over my budget, so it still depends on other bids, and whereabouts it is located in Melbourne... (bad grammar, I know, tsk tsk)

Now, I'm also tempted by something else on ebay... Someone is selling a beautiful Maya wrap AND pouch (the colour of the pouch isn't quite my taste, but I've never tried a pouch before either)... ATM they're only $31.51 together, with $5.60 in postage - a total bargain, there are 8 hours to go on those two items... So far there have been quite a few buds - 8, I think - so a fair bit of activity there, but who knows...

It's very pretty though, isn't it, and seems to be in just my current fave colours; purply and bluegreen! Then again, I really don't NEED another sling - though I am curious to try out a pouch! I loved my old Maya that I used with Luey, though I do LOVE my hipbubby slings, too... I'll jusy have to see where the ayction goes and how I feel tonight...

So, that is what I've been doing on this lazy day... This week sees the beginning of busier days in our household, too... Tomorrow we start back at homeschooling group, and next week sees the start of the Chadstone playgroup - and I've had a lot of enquiries about the old Box Hill playgroup, so who knows, we might have to strt that up again...

I still haven't had any sort of awakening as to what I want to do next in life, but maybe for now I'll just see where life takes me???

Well, I got the slings, Yay! for me, so you can check them out in person one of these days, LOLOLOL...

Also, are your girls still playing with their peekaboo blocks, Kate - if so, that's alright :D... If not, are you still interested in selling them perhaps?
