It would be much quicker if I didn't have to put the name of the store and what it is. I'm just glad that laptop computers come with proper numeric keypads nowadays.

Have just had breakfast and a shower and soon I am off to work

I have a couple of mystery shopping jobs today, both a fair distance away, so a bit of driving involved, but that is fine, I love driving

Have a lovely day everyone

I am going out to do a bit of shopping and to buy some flowers for my next door neighbour who just got out of the hospital. I couldn't get to see her and figured she would enjoy them more when she got home anyway!

I am also going to start baking for next week - We do a kid's day camp every year and I head up the kitchen. We give the kids cookies three days, a healthier snack on Wednesday and a "super snack" on Friday which this year will be blue cupcakes with clouds (marshmallows) on top. We have people donate cookies but I always make some and we also have snacks for the moms who want to stick around. I love this event!

I'm still dragging my butt. I managed to get some shopping done today (kiddy pool for the dog and laundry drying racks for me) with the help of my lovely daughter. Now I'm lying on the couch trying to stay a bit cool.

Actually, I totally understand. We have had a pool for Violet ever since she was a baby - I think we have gone through about 5 plastic pools over the last 8 years. A week ago I noticed that the pool was only have full and thought she hand just splashed it out has she often does. No, there was a leak. We haven't had a chance to get a new one and she goes in this one but it is "not the same". Poor Violet!

I vote that people time comes before doggie time. But that's just me...
