I have been happily shopping at the book depository for a while now. Being in the UK books do take 10-14days to arrive but the prices are good and the postage is free so when they sent me an email about signing up as an affiliate I did. The link over there —> in the side bar will take you straight to the book depository and anything you buy I will make a small commission on (doesn’t cost you anything extra). So please feel free to click and shop. I think it is safe from Brett to mention here that I just put in a birthday order for him (his bday is August) for a lego ideas book, a harry potter time turner, a harry potter ‘fantastic beasts and where to find them’ book and a novel for me. The whole lot came to under $50. Have some stuff in my ‘wishlist’ for xmas presents too.
sorry about the advertising but thought I best explain the little ad in the side bar!
So it’s payday and I’m almost broke again now but all the bills have been paid – have got Brett’s bday presents sorted and have money put aside for Owens and Coreys – taking advantage of the toy sales at kmart and bigW. Corey is at the zoo with school today – hopefully the sunny weather stays and he has a ball despite the cold – at least they are going this time – last time it was postponed due to heavy rain. Brett and Owen are going rock climbing with cubs on Wednesday….can’t believe that term 2 is almost over and we are about to start holidays again!
Well I think its time for lunch now (bought myself a little handful of marina mix as a treat today so having that with some pasta – yum).
The estate agent I spoke to is good! I met her when I went to an open house a while ago and she has rung me a couple of times to see if I’m ready to let her come look at the house (Ok I might have mentioned it wasn’t in a fit state for me to let her in). I keep putting her off.. The other day she rang and talked timeframes. We want to be in our new home for Xmas – thats the aim. But close to Xmas would be good as it means minimal disruptions (and me not having to drive from from new house to 2 old schools til end of term). So she says hmm and looks at her calendar and tells me that she is coming at 11am on 13th July and no excuses will be accepted! Ok some people might think that sounds pushy but I laughed – it is most probably exactly what I needed….well that and Lee coming over here more often perhaps. The kitchen was in a dreadful state but is now heaps better and I can see most of the loungeroom floor, I even got around to hanging the new curtains I bought about a year ago in the loungeroom! Best of all when HE told Brett and Corey that they had to clean up their room they actually did it (mutter, mumble, grumble why wouldn’t they do it for me?????). Owen now has a working power point and blinds on his windows. This weeks mission is to finish the kitchen and get moving on the laundry. I will reclaim this house by the 13th July deadline…..meanwhile I will keep up at uni too.
life is good 🙂
