The first thing I did this morning after I wrote my post, was pay the bills. This was less of a stressful job than I had anticipated (it always is) and I was done quickly. I pay them all on line, so it is easy to do. I was able to pay back a loan, so that made me feel real good. It's always nice when you don't have that hanging over your head anymore.

I was feeling tired despite my efforts to stay awake and to want to do chores. I made myself a cup of coffee but it was all in vain. I had to go back to bed. Just as I was about to, the package of clothes arrived. I was so tired that I didn't even open it, but put it down on the chair in my bedroom and went sound to sleep.

I woke up at noontime from the telephone ringing. It was my sister who wanted to go take the dogs for a walk. I said I was not coherent yet and that I would call her back and smoked a cigarette. Then I opened the package with clothes and got dressed. I tried on a bra first and it fit well and to my great pleasure, I had cleavage. That's what you get when you have the right cup size. I tried on one of the sundresses and it fit too and showed my cleavage really well. Lol.

I put on leggings and a cardigan and my boots and was ready to go. I called my sister and told her so. We met in the street and went for a walk. It was cold outside and there were dark gray clouds overhead. We didn't wander too far from home, because it really looked threatening. We were walking around the field in front of her house when the first splatters of rain came down and we hurried home as quick as we could. I had to drag Tyke with me because he wanted to stop and sniff everywhere.

When we got home, it was just about time for the match between the Netherlands and Japan, so I watched that. It was okay, nothing really noteworthy and the Netherlands won with 1-0. I keep getting ready to see some very exciting football, but I'm not seeing it. I probably have my hopes up too much. People were making all sorts of predictions about the outcome, but 1-0 is really a meager score. You'd think the Netherlands could do better than that.

After the game, I fell asleep on the sofa and slept for a few hours. Tyke slept on the other end. I don't know what it is with me and sleeping lately, but I can't seem to get enough of it. I've heard, though, that more people are bothered by it, so it may have something to do with the weather. The cold dreariness may make us want to hibernate.

Of course, I haven't done a thing in the apartment. All of my chores are left undone. Do I care? Not very much, but I have to get them done tomorrow. The place has to be in good shape when the domestic help gets here Monday afternoon. I don't want her to think that I'm a messy person. She probably already thinks that after cleaning up my dirty apartment. I do want to make a good second impression. I don't want her to think that I'm a hopeless case.

I'm already looking forward to going to bed in a few hours. I can't wait to get under the covers. I probably will change the sheets before I get in, because it will be so nice and clean and good smelling. That will make going to bed extra special. I hope I sleep for a long time. I will get my pajamas and bathrobe on in a minute and hang out behind the computer for a while. I have to visit blogs and answer emails.

Have a good rest of the evening or rest of the day. It is dry here now, but there are many threatening clouds. It's kind of cozy inside.

Congrats that Netherlands at least won. England drew and played badly so they are getting a very bad press at the moment. People have flags hanging from their windows and flags on their cars and the match is highly anticipated so people are really disappointed when it is only so so.

The weather here is grey skies too so good idea to go and hibernate! I hope you enjoy your sleep!

Hi Bev, too bad about England playing even. I would have thought they would have beat the other team. England usually does well in football.

People here go crazy too with flags and horns and god knows what else. How long will it last before their balloon is burst?

Enjoy your evening. I hope you don't get rained on.

i'm not watching any football LOL (no i'm not a good German LOL )
Have a wonderful night under your clean sheets. Yay for the cleavage ;)

I haven't found many of the matches terribly exciting, so far. Maybe it is too hot here for me to enjoy (though I understand it is quite cold there in SA!!). I feel completely drained of any energy when it's like this.

I don't think I dare order clothes online. Every time I try things on I find I have misjudeged the size, or cut. And buying bras are the worst. I have to try them all on until I am so exhausted and confused I walk away with nothing. Which, of course, only prolongs the experience.

I order all my bras on line like you TCS as I can't bear any underwires or nylon so I get these funky multi-coloured bras in cotton which I love, flowers and stripes, etc and shocking pink and blue.
You ARE sleeping a lot. Are you off the sleeping pills?
I was told once we got off sleeping pills the body plays catch-up on real sleep for a long time.

Ooh what lovely poppies.

I watched the England match the other evening (and I never watch football) and talk about dull. Like you, I was waiting for some excitement. It's supposed to be world class and it was just dull.

Showers here all day. Maybe it will clear up for the start of Wimbledon:-)

I was disappointed that we didn't get to see the match between Netherlands & Japan because there were so many other ones going on at the same time & the media concentrated on the other games.
Congrats on winning.
I don't think there is anything spectacular going on with the World Cup. England doesn't seem to be as good as they usually are. I think it must be those awful trumpets.
Your new outfit sounds lovely. I wonder how you can order bras & know what size you are? How do you measure?
It didn't rain here but is slightly cooler, though I don't mind.
Have a good night.

Nuts in May

I'm glad you were happy with you purchases. I never have cleavage, although there is no reason why I shouldn't!!! I know you say the right cup size, but I've tried them all, but the cup size I am, still no cleavage. Just have to live with it.

It stormed here terrible for 2 days. We lost power for several hours, which was not fun, since it was very, very hot and the air conditioner went out, as did the fans. I felt like I couldn't breathe.

I felt so bad for the dogs, little women in fur suits. They were panting like crazy. I finally took them down to the basement and kept giving them water.

Have a good Sunday. I'll be thinking of you.

Hi Nora. You've changed your wallpaper, but it's still poppies. I like it.

It's amazing how much sleep you can tolerate lol. I HATE to have to go to bed during the day. I only do it if I'm next to death or can't actually keep my eyes open any longer.

Last night I lost track of the time while lacemaking - thinking just a little bit more, just finish that line etc - and when I looked it was 4am! And then when I got into bed I couldn't get off to sleep.

Despite that I don't feel too bad. And it'll STILL be a struggle to get myself into bed before 2am tonight. I wish I looked forward to getting into bed!
