At night we went to The Mandarin Restaurant for supper and it was good. We were seated in the bird room; there is an aviary filled with birds and that kept The Little Princess amused watching them. Miss Nora wasn't as bothered as there was plenty of other things keeping her amused. The kids all clubbed together to get me a Kobo e-reader and a 9 month premium subscription to Next Issue. I got a five minute crash course at the restaurant on how to use it and promptly forgot.....would that be another sign of getting old do you think? I had a go with it on Sunday but could do with some pointers. I am really looking forward to learning how to use it and it will be easier than having a pile of books in the house.
I have to brag about our Little Princess. She just turned 14 months and knows how to use the potty. She can't ask to go but if you sit her on it she knows what to do and does it. Also if you ask where is Miss Nora, she'll point at her. She is such a smart cookie. I am so sure she takes after me, just like Miss Nora does....LOL
Talked to a few folk over the weekend especially family and as I turned 50
Our desktop computer hard drive went kaput. So poor dh has been trying to figure out what to do. All our photos are on there which sucks. So I am picking up my emails up on my laptop and I don't like the setup I have on my laptop.
Finally sold the dining room table and chairs on Sunday via Kijiji, which is good. After being mucked around by some other folk, these guys were a joy to deal with. Plus I think they may take some of the garden/garage stuff when we have a yard sale.
Will make a fresh attempt at listing things on Kijiji at the beginning of next month. If the weather would just warm up I could make a start on sorting things out in the garage. I am going to pack up the china cabinet this week.
Remember we got the new mattress a week or two ago? Just discovered none of my flannel sheets fit due to the mattress being so deep. Luckily they had seen better days, but dh is not happy not having his flannel sheets to go with his two doubled over blankets on his side!! Meanwhile on my side of the bed I have the sheet and the bed cover and am wearing a summer nightie..........why is it one is always hot while the other is always cold?
