Good morning everyone! I am still out sick with kidney stones but I am feeling better.I may try work tomorrow...But I was just in bed watching tv and cat napping when I saw my first Christmas commercial!!! It was the Kmaart Layaway commercial with the gingerbread man! That alone makes me feel so much better.Has anyone else seen a commercial yet...? Up until now I have not even seen any fall/Halloween commercials. What a great way to start the day...now if I could just pass these stones!!! Have a great day everyone!

Oh dear !Kidney stones are so uncomfortable to say the least. Wishing you a speedy recovery!

That was a lovely surprise seeing that ad! I have not seen any yet but this morning I noticed a Christmas Bakery Section on the supermarket website where I shop!

So I will have to remember I saw my first Holiday Commercials for fall and Christmas on 9/11...now I just realized it's sept11th! 12years seems so long but I still feel like it's yesterday! Well Have a good morning everyone!

I know what you mean I have re started on my cross trainer last week after not being on it for a few months. It really tires you out at first but hang in there it will get easier. Soon the effects will be the opposite and we will be bursting with energy!



Sorry to hear you have been under the weather lately. I hope you are feeling much better now. Goodluck at work today , hope you are feeling well enough to make it in.



That is an awesome piece Snow! You find some lovely things. Ever thought of being a Personal Shopper for extra income
I would love to do that!! If there is a market for that, and consistent income in it, that would be the job for me!!

I am doing my weekly online shop and I just noticed that they added another christmas section - Christmas Bakery. There are already some lovely festive goodies on there. It made my day! Wow guys , it really is beginning to look alot like christmas!

I have decided to repaint our living room. It needed touching up (kids!) so I am going to change the colour and get new wallpaper for the chimney breast. It won't be too much of a big job as the room is small. Anyway I want to get it done before Halloween.

Ok well I'm off to get a few things done but I will be in and out of here through out the day as usual You all make great company, thank you!

Happy Pines Day!
That is wonderful news about your camera! Three cheers for DH ❤

Good luck with your living room project, I'm sure it will be amazing!

I am loving the fact that we're seeing more Christmas items everywhere. Awesome!!

Have a great day, friend!!

Maybe in an hour or so I will feel better.
Going to be supper hot again today and humid again. It is already 22c (71f) feeling like 31c (87f) and the sun is not even up yet.
Thinking of you, CS. Praying you feel better soon. ((Hugs))
