Morning all.
It's a rainy start to the day.

A few houses around our area got burgaled too over the years. So we put up a fake cctv camera in the yard. A deterrent. The robberies around here are usually broad daylight when owners in work and school. It's sad but they are always a few.... nobs

Well done Suze for replacing so quick.

Have you started counting down the hours yet MB...?

I set a timer till my departure time and it says I have two days, 14 hours and 44 minutes to go.

Honestly I think I am going crazy here.

My charcoal grill "adventure" is postponed for tomorrow.

Whatever lesson the Universe is trying to teach me, I don't get it.

It would surprise none of my co-workers here that I haven't got a clue what day it is. Or anyone else that knows me for that matter.

I have security stickers too. I also have an old webcam set up in my window, facing out...but not attached to anything.

I've been burglarized - it sucks. Now I just keep my vast wealth in a safety deposit box and have insurance for the rest.










it's a very small safety deposit box.

Yes, definitely insured....I never was before, but I kind of bought every single thing you can need in a home....so insured. Love the web cam in the window....I am going to copy that idea.

EDIT: fake cameras are only $10. Well worth it....getting one.

Hi Everyone, hope you’re all getting on ok? Well, this will make me sound ungrateful but got to vent lol. I am trying to resist the temptation to sneak down to the bar for a down in one triple vodka! Croatia is lovely but being around another person 24/7 is driving me loopy. So, we couldn’t have the room we booked but they gave us a 1 bedroom apartment (smallish) instead. As soon as we got in it my mum runs off to the private bedroom with a king size bed, lovely huge bathroom and says this is mine! So I have paid a crap load of money to be here and I am on the sofabed which isn’t very comfy in the kitchen/living area with the spare toilet and shower lol. She keeps complaining about being hot but then opens the windows and doors at night which turns the aircon off so it gets hotter. We start to get ready to go out to eat and I end up sitting on my sofabed fully dressed waiting for an hour while she takes forever. I do love my mum lots lol but all this “not saying anything as don’t want to spoil it” is making me a silent bundle of rage haha x

MantaLady, What would be the harm in telling her the truth: that you are having a horrible, uncomfortable time, and there are little compromises she could make that would make life ten times better for you?

How much longer does the trip last?
