Michele that is so very exciting. Did you end up with an expander or pop top. You will love either. We may see each other on the road.
Yes Michele please do show and tell  8) 8) 8) And yes you will love it. Caravanning is so much fun. We may have to have a Forum Vanfest ;D

I will be in that with bells on.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Very excited. Technology is so much fun. DD was looking at Kindle things this morning and bought this for me. It looks amazing as I love this sort of cookbook.


A real bargain at $3.??

I hit the boxing day sales with my shopping list and left relatively unscathed 90mins later :)
I bought 8 baby sleep suits, washers, wraps and a whole heap of clothes for DD for next summer :)
It's very rare that I stick with my shopping list but nothing really took my fancy!

Well done jam.
I hit the Boxing Day sales too........from the comfort of my couch!
Towels, sheets, bras and knickers (undies really but dS7 gets so upset when I tell him I've got him some knickers 😊). All free postage and with a lovely coffee in one hand. Hopefully the parcels will arrive staggered so I can wash and put them away gradually.

Great work Kimmy :) I also did some online shopping too :) I noticed the shops were rather quiet and I suspect many people are doing the same!

None of the shopping centres are open in Lake Macquarie/Newcastle so I thought I would go down to Tuggerah on The Central Coast. I was there at 7.30am found a great park and the centre had quite a few people there already by the time I left at 12.30 you could hardly move and there was a bit of an altercation over my car spot and security got involved. Couldn't get out of the parking spot until they resolved that. 25mins to get down and 45mins to get home. Did get some bargains though.
