Second Monday…


I say that because we had a Public Holiday here in SA yesterday.

Never a problem to have a long weekend, even though it screws up my sleep pattern completely, but hey. An extra day of not having to worry about doing anything other than chill is always a good thing 😉

So, dried the clothes that needed drying, packed the biscuits I have into packets, visited with the family, and got a gorgeous chair from the estate of my sister’s late Mother-in-Law.

My plan for my dining room table is to have 8 chairs around it, not one being the same, and not one younger than about 30 years. Will suit perfectly with all the other old things I currently have in my house. Think the newest thing there is my laptop – and even that’s going on for 4 years now.

I don’t much like new things, other than technology, and the new technology I would prefer to have, I can’t afford, so I’ll stick to the ones I have – as long as they still work, I’m happy 😉


Thought a joke would be in order – hope your day, or night, or afternoon is as good as it can possibly be 😉

    • I don’t suppose many people will like it – not enough symmetry, but that’s the way I’ve always wanted it to be, so that’s the way it shall be 😉
      Seeing as it’s my house, and mine alone 🙂

      • I’m working on restoring one chair. Have another one waiting – think it will look cute once it’s done 😉
        We’ve taken to using a bunch of different old plates when we have a do at home – I like using the old things – they have so much more character than anything new 😉

      • Mine are not just old looking – they are old – my great grandmother used some of them, my grandmother the rest – old is definitely for me way better than anything new 😉

  1. Like the laws too – esp. Wilson’s Law. I would amend it to read that as soon as they make something effective and cheap, it’s be gone in a few months time. Happened here with some over-the-counter ulcer medicine that REALLY worked. Cheaply
