We are not the girliest of girls

So, on Thursday I cancelled all plans and stayed at home in my PJs all day. I'm a bit sad about that because I was looking forward to all the stuff I had planned. I should have done my marking then, but I didn't and I still haven't. So there!

On Friday Chelle and I were the only people up for the road trip, but we went for it and drove to PNorth. Nothing exciting there, except we packed lunches and they were good! I got to have chippies in my sandwich too!

We barely even went into PNorth really, just went to ezibuy and while we tried on many many things, we didn't spend that much, I think I spent $43 and Chelle spent in the 30s. We were very good. I bought some fun stuff and I do not know where I will wear it. Maybe for Larps or something. I'm pretty sure I'll wear one item next Sat at Evie's.

We ate our lunch in the car, it was windy, then we went north to Bulls and I got extrememly salty liquorice! I like it, but next time probably won't get such salty stuff. I also got some advocaat toffees and I like those too. In Bulls we also went to the Scully's store and I spent more there than at Ezibuy. I mostly bought presents.

Everything was fine on the way back, until my car started making a really weird thumping noise. We slowed and pulled over (to the consternation of the following traffic). The rear right tire had blown out! Now, I wasn't concerned to start with. I have changed tires before, my Dad made sure I knew how. I got the equipment out. I jacked the car up. I attempted to remove the hub cap. I tried it a different way. I tugged and pried at the cap. Chelle also heaved at it. We even both tried at the same time. This thing was not moving. Not a whit! I was gettin tired, we were getting late, so I caved and called the AA.

Gah, she didn't seem to understand where we were and she said it would be at least 30 minutes before anyone came. Fine, I said. I walked back to the wheel. Chelle had been working on it, but still nothing. I got frustrated and stuck in the pry and somehow got it. I prised off the hub cap and we changed the wheel in about 5 minutes. Chelle called the AA to cancel our distress call. For some reason they thought we were on SH3?! Good thing we didn't wait.

Nothing else freaky happened and we drove back to Wgtn without incident. Got to Mercury in time to see Baby's first visit to a bar. Was very jealous of everyone else's baby time. I'm sorry for being evil, esp to Sass. He just seemed to like her holding him so much! No excuse really. Went home shortly after that, did stop by Reading to hang out with N while she fed and changed bub. We were all horrified by the fact that some women/girls seem to think of the parent room as their own private toilet. Really terrible, I wouldn't even think of going there.

Got home and ate baked beans. I like them so I'm happy. Spent some quality TV watching time with muggle and went to bed earlyish. Good start for the last days of the holiday.
