Well people, I have to come clean. My Mayday Project effort was really a bit of a whimper!

I had grand plans to present an exciting and interesting Saturday... a nice walk down by the river so you could see where I live... something nice for lunch... then buy lotto and shop for Mother's Day brekky.

It started to derail with my travel agent's call at ten, to tell me about two nights on the Superstar Virgo cruise liner for $339. So I was on the phone for a bit, organising that... I love booking holidays!

And of course, I had to tell all my friends online about the excitement. I even fell asleep for a bit after that, d'oh!

At ten to four, I woke into a mad ten minute lotto ticket buying panic. Explaining an unvalidated, but otherwise winning set of lotto numbers was not on my "Mum and Chris" agenda for Mother's Day! Subject, as most of my life is, to Murphy's law, the ticket's validity kept its numbers safely in the barrel.

But it's here that my subterfuge begins. The really interesting planned day in pictures had morphed into sleep and internet. So after lotto, I dashed around the suburb, snapping pictures of the things I'd planned.

The lotto agency... made it, just!

A nice view of the Swan River, around the corner from my house... I WAS actually there, even if only for the brief few seconds to snap this picture!

After the film, James messaged me, uninitiated in Greek wedding flicks. He called over to watch while I still had it on loan. Twice in one night? Well, it's a bloody nice film! Thanks again to Khadijha for the loan :

Oh, and I left one out... a picture of the mop to highlight "pre-brekky" housework... something tells me you'll contain your disappointment at its omission!
