A picture's worth 1000 words … week 14 ...

A photo a day … every day … in 2015.

Let me start by apologising for the very poor photos I am presenting this week.

We've been a tad busy.

After enduring many, many years of nagging Hubby finally caved agreed that we could renew the floors in our place.  And this week was the week.  This involved packing up everything within the house and somehow storing the entire contents in the laundry and the garage.  No easy feat … but if you've ever played Tetris you will get the idea.

As a result the quality and content of my photos suffered … because
a) Most of the time I couldn't find my camera.
b)  There wasn't much to see … except a few tradie cracks … but I spared you those.
c)  I was too stuffed to think about taking photos.

So without further ado … here they are …

Day 88:  Off to Italy for Master 15's birthday … OK … just off for Italian.

Day 89:  Those afoot plans are underway.

Day 90:  Two boys washing up … had to record that one for posterity.

Day 91:  The table's set for dinner … we're super classy around here!

Day 92:  Progress.

Day 93:  As far as we got before the flooring ran out … delays are an integral part of a renovation aren't they?

Day 94:  Mood lighting … mainly because it was one of the few things I've unpacked … but also because I need something to improve my mood after running out of flooring!!

Better late than never ...

No one can ever accuse me of being bang on trend … in fact I'm generally a little late to the party … that's if I ever arrive at all.

I didn't own a computer until long after EVERYONE owned a computer.

I stuck with my dumb phone for years after everyone else had a smart phone.

I thought One Direction was a road sign until just recently.

I still haven't a clue about this thing they call Twitter.

But every now and then I discover something … that everyone else already knows about.

Yesterday I was at the shops with Master 17 when he insisted on popping this thing into the trolley.

Everyone in Australia had one of these in their homes in the late nineties … it was the faddiest of fads … and I refused to entertain the idea of having one for even a moment.

Until yesterday, when number one Son slipped it into the trolley and insisted "I must get it … besides it's only $4".  It was actually $4.50 but I won't split hairs.

"What a load of junk … do you think I've got money to waste on such crap … I can't believe you insisted on getting this … do you think I walked 152 miles to school in the snow just so you could have one of these … blah, blah blah"

And then I put it on my head.

My head massager and I are spending a quiet day at home together today.  I might put on some romantic music … I've heard there's a new fangled thing around called a CD.
