Aww I can just imagine how happy and excited he was, that is wonderful

Are you having many lights up outside JoAnn?

That's nice to know. I feel much better about things if I know I am not hurting someone to "make them better." Or if it is something uncomfortable, I've done my best to minimize the discomfort.

Why do you have both kinds of air conditioners? Are the evaporative ones cheaper to use?

Taxy, we have the evaporative all through the house as that air con is good for dry heat, which we get a lot of here and we have the refrigerated unit in the lougeroom which is great for days that are humid, as on those days the evaportaive is hopeless, it just brings the humidity inside the house.

The evaporative is certainly cheaper to run

Thank you, yes I will have the air con on again today as this humidity kills me

We just put them over the double garage door. They are the icicle kind. They have the white cord and the all blue lights. I use the blue in memory of our Christmas tree when I was little, my mother always used all blue lights. I still get that special feeling when I see them.

This morning I am going to collect our Wii U Premium and also a couple of Wii U games that we had on pre-order

That will be wrapped straight away and put away for Christmas...actually we can put it under the tree tomorrow as that is when we are putting the tree up

I have mum dropping over this afternoon for coffee and to see the new curtains

They do sound nice JoAnn, they sound similar to ones that people put outside here, hanging along their eaves...love all the lights when you drive by peoples homes

Just back from a quick shopping. I got booze, coffee, coffee filters, coffee cream, Finn Crisp, and a prescription for osteoporosis. You can tell I don't have any kids in the house.
