I am not getting any better at posting on here am I? Not that it matters since no one reads it!!!!
Laura started high school this week! I was not around in the morning or the afternoon to see her since I am at work before she leaves and not back until after she gets home. It sucks at times like this, well actually at the moment it is like that all the time but that is another story. We only just got Laura's skirt the day before and that is only because i rang to see what was happening to which they didn't really know so put one aside for us. When we got there the next day the one they had put away was to big luckily they had some others back in stock but I don't think the actual size she needed it just means she can grow out a couple of inches or so. At the time i thought the hem was abit cheap as it was just overlocked then when Laura got home from her first day a teacher told her that it was to long and should be above her knee. so guess what I did all afternoon. It has a box like pleat at the front and I had to take a huge amount up but didn't want to cut it so it all took forever and a bit of unpicking and restitching. It is not fantastic but unless some kind person offers to fix it that is the way it is staying! Am I wrong it thinking the people at the shop should have mentioned the skirt needed to be that length? I guess I was just not impressed with the service overall. It didn't help that the first time we went there they were closed even though on the yellow pages web site it said they were open until 5:30 and the sign it the window said 5:15 and it was 5:05 and no one was there and we had driven in all the way from Rolleston.
Weather here has been great, even with a few cooler days this week it is lovely and hot today!! We stoned the front of the garden in front of the garage this morning. They are suppose to be black but you can only see them like that if the are wet, although the ones we saw are not wet all the time so obviously ours are different or it is that we don't have a different colour stone beside them to make them stand out. Who knows they look fine anyway.
Justin and I are off out tonight on a bus trip for a girl from my work for her 21st. How old are we gonna feel? I am looking forward to it and I am not. I just hope Justin doesn't get bored since he won't really know anyone and he is going to drive so..... I am sure it will be fine.
No thing happening on the wedding front still, I am back at looking at dresses I am trying to decide if I want to wear a traditional dress or something casual going on the assumption of an island wedding. there is this although it is actually a bridesmaids dress I quite like it. http://www.islandimporter.com/KatieDress-idv-292-23.html
or do I go for something more like this http://www.astrabridal.co.nz/images//gowns/gs90740m.jpg

Let me know what you think.
Well that is all I have time for at the moment until next time I hope everything is good with all of you and have a good night.
