99 things meme

I spent a lovely day yesterday with Kate and Anna and Leah and Zoe and Nicko and Maeve and Susan and at least two other people and two bunnies and enough cookies and shortbread to sink a battleship. It was nice to get out and about but *shakes fist* not when I was simply not. up. to catching public transport, and needed a 2 hour nap when I got home.

Today I had breakfast at 7am (I love early mornings but I'm TIRED people!) and had to send my eggs back as I like poached eggs, and I like them runny - but uncooked just doesn't do it for me. I went to Spotlight and got more brooch back (mountain) s because I can't find the ones I did buy just the OTHERDAY even though I've tidied up repeatedly trying to find them. I got toning shampoo as my hair is white blonde at the moment and tends to go brassy quickly. I bought a pair of Birkenstocks:

as per orders from TheMan and I am SOINLOVEWITHTHEM. I hate thongs with a passion because I can't stand anything between my toes, and these were the perfect gift from my man.

Typing is hard going. Memes are easy. Shoulder is on the mend but clothes folding outdid me today. *shakes fist*

Meme:
Things you've already done: bold (36.5/99)
Things you want to do: italicize (29/99)
Things you haven't done and don't want to - leave in plain font (33.5/99)

Started to do this meme but found the American focus too annoying.

*Hugs* re your shoulder. Hope it's improving.
