Tuesday Natter

I seem to have a problem.   We have water, water everywhere and I have a neighbour frothing at the mouth.  Every time it rains heavily ~ and that's the only way it rains here ~ "my" storm water floods Phil's yard, he's gone to the Council and...

Tough Titties

There is a couple of things that I find really hard to deal with in my real life and I find them just as hard to deal with when I'm blogging, reading on the internet.  Religion is  actually the biggest one, when did someone's person religion come up...

Sunday Natter

I come here to blog, to interact with others, I was somewhat controversial when I first joined, but I've found my niche here now, I write about my day to day life, I'm boring cause I just do my thing.  No one knows my political views, I'm just here to...

Wednesday Natter

It's been amazingly wet here over the past 12 months or so, we've gone from drought and water rationing to the heavens opening up most days, it's got rather boring, I'm over it do you hear me weather god, it's time that the rainy season ended, notice...

Nightbanes Challenge 26229

I remember picnics in my early 20's times spent beside meandering streams with a lazy waterfall just out of sight but you can hear the water falling with a tinkling sound, it's the Australian bush.   It's 1973 I'm almost 20 years old, Steve is...

Monday Natter

I had my very first outing today for almost 3 weeks, they tell me I'm no longer contagious and I'm really over the worst of it.  I've been doing my grocery shopping over the internet, with instructions that when it is delivered to ring the door bell,...

Saturday Natter

Up until today I never realized how much fun you can have changing linen on a bed especially when 4 cats decide that your doing this just for their entertainment, have you ever tried to smooth down your bottom sheet when there are two kitten rampaging...

Healing a broken heart

This is part of a blog I wrote last night for friends only, but also part of a path that has been traveled by many over the years.   Almost 7 1/2 years ago, my husband of 30 years died in my arms, he had cancer and we had had many, many times...

Sunday Natter

I've spent the week just pottering around, all 3 of us came down with a head cold and none of us feels like doing anything, 28 yo and 26 yo both dragged themselves to work all week, not sure that either of them could be considered an asset by any...

Tuesday Natter ~ Extra

This afternoon I found a very small corner of sunshine and sat and went through my things to do list and started a new one.  To my astonishment 6 pages of repairs, refurbishment and just plain getting it right after living here for almost 21 years...

Tuesday Natter

On Sunday we made our way back home, we breezed through the airport, picked up my car and the boys were dropped off here, then I drove Mom home, we checked out her place ensured that no one had been in while she was away, I gave her a loving hug,...

Saturday Natter

I'm sitting on our verandah, Master 2 is curled up on my lap, he's sort of contorted himself into this round lump of little boy, smelling ever so suspiciously like a little wet puppy I'm wondering how long it's been since he had a real bath?  He's...

Wednesday Natter

Life really doesn't get much better than this, I'm sunning myself on a tropical Island, being waited on, I'm surrounded by my family and it's just fabulous.  No worries, I don't have to think about a thing and the greatest thing ever is each day...

In hiding

I have a new laptop, it hasn't been completely loaded yet with everything that I use, I'm working on that in my off moments just now, hopefully the apps I'm missing I'll be able to download shortly.  The internet connection here is a little hit and...
