Didn’t get a chance to add everything in last week so this will have two weeks worth of stuff in it 😀
So the boss left the office one afternoon and this happened 😉 We sent him this picture to show how hard we were working.
As you can see, he has good taste in whiskey 😀
On the Friday we had to make a rather lengthy detour through Rotorua to pick up a Trademe purchase. I got a 1930’s leadlight display cabinet almost identical to this one (forgot to get photo sorry) for $31. The glass on right needs repair and the whole thing needs a light sand and clean up but what a bargin.
I’m going to turn it into a liqueur cabinet as it is in our downstairs games room 😀 I already have a similar one upstairs that we inherited.
On the way home we made a pitstop at Okere Falls for a wee Chardonnay as one does. Had to get a photo of the sign as Rocket my daughers nickname while she was at Trout Lodge in Missouri. I’m pretty sure that they called her this as she does everything, including speaking, at lightning speed haha She now has a wee rocket tattood on her foot
We had a lot on last week with a friends 50th birthday and our first Christmas function (NZ doesn’t have Thanksgiving so Christmas starts last week of November) so movies for last week were only 2.
Loved it!!! Seriously enjoyed watching this 😀 Totally laughed my butt off 🙂 a strong 4.5/5 stars
and then this
It was so bad it was hilarious 😀 Again I laughed my butt off but not for the right reasons. Truly epicly bad. The lackings of the script were only surpassed by the awful acting. If you are a fan of the B grade horror, as I am, then you will love this 😀 1/5 stars on the real movie system but a 3.5/5 on the B grade horror gradient 😀
The family christmas function that we went to was really not Chritmassy at all and just an excuse for my husbands extended family to gather. It used to be Christmas eve at Gran’s house but with her passing a few years ago its been pushed out the the last week of November so that more can make it. It was earlier again this year, I’m not sure why. Anyway we had a wee disaster driving in. This happened:
If you look closely you can see that there is a metal bar sticking up. This attached itself to our under carriage and we had to get the car jacked up and used scaffolding planks to drive off it. We now have a ventilated muffler that requires repair. Found out we are the third car, worst damage, to have this happen to and they have had 2 punctures off it in the last 2 weeks! I was not a happy camper we I found that out. Up until then I had been all ‘stuff happens’ but that irked me. Made the car sound rather grunty though haha
