Friday Mutter

Well the weather has taken a turn on the chilly side, although it was a sarong day, tonight I'm sitting here wearing jeans and a long sleeve tee shirt ~ even contemplating perhaps I might need to add a light sweatshirt.  Pete said goodbye at about 2...

Thursday Natter

The weather is still brilliant, blue skies, lots of sun and a lovely offshore breeze, although it's hot it's still bearable, hopefully we will not have a sizzling summer like they predicted.  Friend Pete is still here, he will not leave until Friday,...

Australian Day Natter

January 26th is a National holiday here, it's the day that our founding fathers landed atLa Perouse, Botany Bay. Australians take this day very seriously, usually I start today with a typical Aussie get together with mates at Newport Beach.   ...

Melancholy

It's been a sad week and I'm feeling the drain of having to face that my friend Ken has died.  It's dragged me back to those dark days when Stephen died and how I felt and how hard it was to cope.  Julie and I had coffee this morning, we both cried...

Sunday Mutter

I hate enforced idleness, having stepped on a broken glass 8 days ago, I've been forced to spend that time virtually doing nothing, not my style at all.  I've sat glued in front of the television (if you knew me you'd know I don't watch TV) and...
