Wednesday 9th February 2011…I think I may have to…..

Declare my gambling winnings on my income tax return!!!!!

 

Tennis this morning and then Sara and I went to a butchers shop we had been told about and boy what a thriving little hole in the wall shop.  I bought 5 pounds of the leanest ground beef, 2 boneless pork chops, 2 rib eye steaks, 2 boneless chicken breasts and 15 slices of bacon…all of this was cut whilst I waited and it came to 400 pesos about 33 dollars.  At home Sara used the ground beef to make 9 hamburgers and 2 meatloaves, we had a burger for supper and very delicious!!  Before we went to the butchers shop we went to a fabric store where I found some material to cover some cushions and the seat backs in Ramona we thought that the store would sell us the material then we could pay for them to fit them but they only sell the material.  So whilst we were in the butchers shop I asked Sara to ask the staff if there was anyone around the area who could cover the cushions.  The butcher’s wife came around the counter and took Sara with her and they went next door and met Maria who is a seamstress, so Sara got all the measurements done and we will get the material and take it all to her…I love Mexico everything you need!!!

So off to poker this afternoon and a big winner yet again!!!!
