Oops I did it again

So last weekend was a bit of a fizzer.  It rained rather heavily almost all day Saturday and Sunday was just about as miserable.  Had to cancel both the walk up the big hill in my back yard as well as the scheduled activity which has been postponed for 2 weeks so I will surprise you with that one later.

We got bored.

By 10am all the chores were done and because we had no other plans outside of the cancelled ones we needed a new plan.

As chance would have it there was a Tattoo expo on so we went.  My husband has just recently gotten a large shoulder piece done and is looking at a cover up for his other shoulder so wanted to start looking at his options.

By the end of the first row I kinda decided I wanted another tattoo.  Was thinking maybe a paw print behind my ear.  I have kinda been thinking for a while that I wanted some sort of cat tattoo and that seemed a nice simple option.

By the final row it had evolved and I wanted something with paw prints down my spine.

It was rather a new experience getting one at an expo.

As I had not been planning this I had on a very poor choice of clothing aka: a maxi dress.  Luckily I was wearing a sports bra.  I ended up having to take my arms out of the sleeves and holding it up in front as it was my front bits which were pointing towards the audience. They had run out of black ink so while we waited Tommy, my carefully selected tattoo guy, was making comments about getting the girls out and swinging motions.  He was rather fun and it was all light hearted.  While we were waiting both Tommy and I decided to make a break for the bathrooms. You really know that you are at a tattoo expo when you run through a stadium holding up the front of your dress so the girls don’t fall out and nobody bats an eyelid hahaha

So this is tattoo #7.  Tommy did a fantastic job and it really has beautiful lines.


I think I may have an addiction hahaha



Cross Stitcher, knitter, home cook, HVAC specialist, avid movie and TV watcher, reader and mum. I work full time and I'm not very good at sitting still so I love to try all sorts of crafting things from scrap-booking to ceramic work, but mostly I stitch. Heaven & Earth designs would be my favourite. I have had some major health scares in the past few years that I would not of expected to experience for at least another 20 odd years (born in 1971 so am currently only 45). Due to this I have a bucket list and its full of things right from books I must read to adventures I must achieve before I croak. I am always at the gym making myself stronger and healthier to fight my challenges and achieve my goals. Before the challenges I thought there would always be enough time and was just drifting along. You know how it is. Work, chores, kids, sleep, get up tomorrow and start again. I didn't really have any clear goals. I knew I wanted to travel but that was pretty much it. I was gaining weight steadily and didn't do anything much outside of the house and work. Since the challenges I have managed to get almost front row for both the Eagles and Elton John (expensive but you can't take it with you right), have had a day tour Kayaking around a lake and hiked the Tongariro Crossing. None of these would I even have considered 3 years ago. This is only the beginning :D Life is a gift and its what you make of it. You want it then you best be prepared to go get it :D
