Avoiding the express lane

Yesterday I had absolutely no motivation to do anything. By 2pm I had managed to sporadically move from the lounge to the bed and back again without achieving anything in between. I bargained with myself that if I at least got dressed I didn't have to do anything else. Getting dressed some how lead to a spur of motivation and I baked some cookies, went and got coffee and walked around the lake.

Today I was treated to breakfast at one of my favourite cafes and than got an hour and a half massage with a gift certificate from my birthday. It was so lovely and relaxing, something I wish I could indulge in every Sunday, what a great start to the week.

However I than went to pick up groceries and was abused by a lady in the line for having two many items in the express lane. I was three items over and I can honestly say I had no intention of inconveniencing her, I didn't think that I was 3 items over. I was so taken back I didn't know what to say I guess in future I will just double check how many items I have, surely there is more important things to worry about in life.

I hope you have had a good weekend!

  1. You look lovely. I love that you bargain with yourself so funny! I work at a supermarket and I can tell you people are nuts. What's an extra 20 seconds out of her day? x

  2. First things first...you look great!

    Second, I can't believe you got razzed for three extra items! I never say ANYTHING if someone has just a little basket full of things or is a couple items over. That's silly. Tonight I was behind a woman in the "10 Items or Less Lane" with....34 items. THIRTY FOUR! She also had nine coupons and wanted a price check on several things.

    Now that is worthy of razzing. But three items? No, no. Likely someone was just very crabby. Don't worry...you're lovely. :)

  10. Yikes re: the express lane story...sometimes God uses those times to remind us that we are dealing with some very tense people! I wouldn't have known what to do either...

    Oh, and your bag is completely adorable! :)

  11. I can't believe that lady at the supermarket! Three items over and she's worried about it?! I mean, really! She should be concerning herself with far more pressing matters than that! Glad to hear the rest of your day was enjoyable though. Love me a good massage! Kellie xx

  13. This outfit is super, dooper cute!! Where are the shorts from? Your little tags didn't have any shorts info :(

    That lady must've been having a bad day to get cranky at you like that! At least, I hope that's what happened and she isn't like that to everyone :-/

  15. No No No, Shorts are NOT a good look on you! And that blouse? What were you thinking?? If you must wear shorts, put the tan on first! It will help to slim your legs down!
