Go, you good thing...

I am of course referring to the Reserve Bank! You little beauty!

I am not sure who won the Melbourne Cup. Gone are the days of wearing a strange thing on my head and drinking bubbles in the afternoon. I am also a little squirmy about gambling. Once upon a time a worked in community welfare and got to see some of the results of gambling. And no, it wasn't commonly a big fancy house and a car and lots of gold jewellery. I understand that a little flutter is fun and all but for some people it ain't that easy.

(This is fast becoming a rather random post...)

We had a builder here today to supply quotes for skylights. As he was looking at the kitchen, Minnie ran in and announced very loudly 'I want to wee in the garden like Daisy-Cat.' Priceless. So was the look on his face.

I will be back soon with some photos of the sewing room - new storage solutions are in place. But it still looks like a squat in there... Give me a few days. My dear friend and I both spend a lot of our sleeping and waking hours dreaming/thinking of storage solutions. Hours spent at Ikea, at Ikea.com.au and in the Ikea catalogue. Does this happen to all women when they become adults/parents/WAHM's?


Maurice Monster is a new lad in the shop. More to come...

We've had a similar day - don't care for gambling either, my girls always want to wee 'in the jungle' like the dog does and I think my husband plans to buy a ride on lawnmower with the savings on the mortgage.

Forgot about the race...went to the park instead (blogged about it too). Maurice is just divine...I am in love. So sorry I forgot about the monkey shirt - now I know why. In the next few days will contact you re. Maurice.

LOL!! 'Wee in the garden like Daisy-cat'! So cute!
I understand about the storage and organization obsession, Rach. I stare at the uber-organized room photos in the magazines and salivate. Jeff used to call this affliction my 'cupboard porn'. I can't wait to see the photos of the room! Do before and after shots!!! So fun!
I hope you're doing okay in other parts of your life, Rach. I think about you all the time and hope you're keeping up.

Ahhhh, storage - I dream about it too - it used to be high heels, or the latest Leonna Edminston dress!!

A worker in a shop on Tuesday asked me if I was off the Cup, I said I don't gamble and dont believe in flogging horses round a track... she looked at me as if I'd step off from another planet! May be I have ...
