Today is July 1st (in case you didn't know). Apparently that makes it Canada Day, so happy Canada Day to anyone who is Canadian, or who feels like having something to celebrate today. :)
It's also Kelly's Grandmother, Sarah's birthday. I doubt she'll see this (I don't see how she will), but I'll say happy birthday anyway!
It's one of those "too hot to do anything" kinda days. The good thing is, I didn't really have anything I needed to do today anyway. So that worked out great for me. LOL!
Well, there was the arrival of our new lawnmower and strimmer. We ordered them Monday, and they came today. But all I had to do is make sure Kero stayed back while Kelly grabbed them and signed for them when they arrived. They said they'd be here "between 7:00 am and 6:00 pm"... I hate when you have to wait all day for stuff. I mean, you could wait all day and they show up at like 5:55 pm, or you could sleep in - figuring they probably wouldn't be here until later anyway - and they arrive at 7:00 am on the dot. But we didn't get the "morning or afternoon?" option. So, I was on morning watch, ready to wake Kelly if he wasn't up when they came. Then he got up at 11:00 am (his usual wake up time) and waited too. As it turned out they arrived around 11:30 am, so I'm glad I didn't make him get up earlier... He's grumpy when he's made to get up early (which is why I tend to let him sleep until 11:00 am unless I "have to" get him up).
Since I only tend to sleep in snatches, it didn't really affect my non-existant sleeping pattern. I was up all night (something I'm used to) and ended up falling asleep around lunchtime (after being up since 9:00 am Tuesday morning). Slept about 4 hours, which is considered a long nap for me. Yeah, I know... Four hours isn't much sleep when you've been up for almost 28 hours, but I just take what I can get. ;)
Anyway, the lawnmower and strimmer were on offer. The mower was at a reduced price. I don't remember what it was meant to be, but it's down to £60 ($120) and the strimmer - which costs £20 ($40) - was free. So, with the £6 ($12) delivery charge, it cost us £66 ($132) for a lawn mower and a strimmer to be delivered to our door. We had to get it quickly though, because the offer is only available until July 24th. After that the stuff goes back to normal pricing. Like I said, I can't remember how much the mower normally is, but I know there's one almost exactly the same in Asda for £100 ($200) so it has to be around that sort of price range, give or take.
Can you tell I don't have much going on right now? ;)
OK, I really don't have anything else to talk about today. Sorry this isn't a more interesting post. Perhaps tomorrow I can think of something more interesting to share? In the meantime, I hope everyone is having a good day, and that you enjoy whatever's left of it. :)
Hugs, healing thoughts and get well wishes to those in need of them!
