Monday Natter

When it comes to rafters I've come to the conclusion that I'm just a slow moving unit, the length of the rafters is starting to totally defeat me, but I'm getting there and I'm almost to the half way point :bigsmile: I need to get a move on.  My...

What are friends for

Having read Funfreaks blog about Cabin Fever needing a new computer and the boredom that he has been suffering since his laptop died, then Scorpiotiger posted a message from Cabin Fever, I went looking and I found him clearing his track into his one...

Friday Natter

Meet Moe and Barney a couple of real characters, between them I'm getting very little done, they are getting a lot undone and unraveled.   Barney the more adventurous of the brothers   Moe, just a little timid Moe and Barney...

Thursday Natter

Another painting day for me, I have a crick in my neck from painting rafters & beams, didn't do a lot today as Mike the Builder started on the lounge room ~ he's the first tradesman that has turned up when he said he would.  Made morning tea, cake...

Wednesday Natter

She's a painting fiend,  yes I'm talking about me, I've been painting exposed beams, 230 at last count, first coat has to be with a brush, second coat I can do with a roller in about a quarter of the time.  My house is more than 70 years old,  in the...

Sunday Natter

It was a beautiful day today and for some reason I could not face painting for too long, did a little on the back veranda but then the call of the garden became too strong.  Today was probably one of the last true summer days for this summer until...

Saturday Natter

Best laid plans of mice and men, I intended to write a "Natter" everyday, it just seems that my life as a home renovator isn't all that interesting and it's really hard to write about spending the day painting ~ enough of that.   It's been a...

Letting go

Sometimes it seems that it's really hard to let go, let go of anger, let go of disappointment, let lost dreams, hopes and wishes go the way that they really are meant to go.  Why is it that we find it so hard, to move on, stop wishing on that star,...

I need to say this

I have to get this off my chest, it's eating me up and making me so unhappy.  Last year in February I had an operation, I had 2 weeks off work, then was supposed to go back to work part time for a minimum of 4 weeks, that didn't happen and eventually...

Saturday Natter

I was really disappointed when I work up this morning when I realized that it was raining cats and dogs.   I sighed and rolled over knowing that all the things I had planned for today were not going to come about, I did get up eventually...

Friday Natter

Some days should never end, when they end the magic slowly fades, today was one of those magic days, a day of finding peace, quite and contentment a day which I really didn't want to come to it's inevitable conclusion.  It's my baby sisters birthday,...

Thursday Natter

I had planned on doing a natter each day, what I didn't take into consideration was the tendency for thoughts to sometimes not play fair and allow me to post my daily natter, neither did I take into consideration that by the time I had a spare moment...

Tuesday Natter

Just a quickie, spent today doing the same as yesterday, working in my garden transplanting plants that will more than likely get trampled on, splattered with render or squashed by the scaffolding that needs to be erected so that the render can be...

Monday Natter

It's finally back to normal temperature, it seems that Saturday was the hottest day for Sydney since they have been keeping records, no wonder my garden and I wilted like a cut flower thrown on the ground.  Sunday around 1 pm the southerly change that...

Saturday Natter

  Today has been one of those days, very hot the temperature was in the 90 F when I got up this morning at 6 am, it eventually climbed to 107 F around 3 pm today, it's currently 90 F, with no easing in sight.  Other than swelter all I've...

Wednesday Natter

I'm melting, the temperature has been in the high 30'sC for the last few days, we have bush fires nearby (they are under control) and I'm breathing smoke constantly, sunset tonight was tinged with that awful red, redness of fires in the distance.  ...
