For Brainstormer

This is a "Staffy" or correct name Staffordshire Bull Terrier, they are quite strong dogs that need a lot of exercise, very loyal and actually great with kids, but do need to be socialized with other dogs and people.

Just call me the neatness fairy, spent the better part of today clearing under the back verandah of all the crap that we just drop there, I just waved my magic wand and it all disappeared, yeah right, almost half of it was mine, stuff that I couldn't...

Why

I can remember when my son's were young and "why" just about drove me insane, finding those answers to why quite often was a massive challenge, yet I'm pretty sure I came to the challenge and answered most of their why's with something that at least...

New blogger

I so love finding new people, people who twig my imagination, my mind etc, people who I feel are my kind.  This new blogger posted a comment on one of my posts and I read her profile and her 3 blogs. I think she's worth reading, worth encouraging and...

Justification

When does it become justifiable to kill your adult children?   When do you kick them out of the nest?   When do you say enough's enough?   When can you legally throttle them?   When is it recognized that this house that you pay...

I'm a bit disappointed absolutely no 16 year olds took me up on my Ebay sale of swapping bodies, I've just had to cope with a brain that's still only in it's 20's and a body that knows it's 58 years young sigh. Things have been moving along here we've...

A thoughts.com storm for Shea

Lots and lots of us know and love Shea, we've read her beautiful blogs about her dolls house (that she rents) and her home in Chisney (not sure I spelt that right) that after her husband died she left.  Shea is trying to fix this house up so that she...

Monday Natter

This evening I placed an ad on Ebay looking for some sweet young thing that's willing to swap a 58 year old body with uncontrollable hormones, arthritis and just starting to feel worn out with a 16 year old's body I'm really upset that my ad has been...

Nanny States

I've made a very important decision, the next Politician that runs for Government who stands up and says he/she is going to repeal all the "Nanny" laws I'm going to vote for no matter what side of politics he/she is on.  I've watched with horror as...

Leaving the Keys

Inspired by Toni55 and her blog http://www.thoughts.com/Toni55/leaving-the-keys   Clutched tightly in my left hand pressed closely to my heart are 3 set of very, very special keys.   The first set is the key to the front door of my...

I meant to add these photo's last night and was just too tired, where we rode yesterday was on the Old Pacific Highway along side the Hawkesbury River on to the Mooney Mooney Bridge   Old Pacific Highway   Hawkesbury River   ...

Wednesday Natter

I've been deliciously naughty today, my car needed a service and where I take it is just around the corner from where friend Pete lives, when I booked it in last week I rang him and asked if I could hang out on the back of his Harley for the day, then...

Tuesday Natter

How many son's does it take to hang a curtain rail in my bedroom?   Answer:  None   I gave up asking and did it myself, finally have curtains on my bedroom window again after more than 6 months.   How many carpenter son's does it...

Sunday Natter

Sometimes sanity does prevail, tomorrow I'm going to get a skip bin delivered, just at the moment we have a trailer packed to the gunnels with stuff and 2 dirty great big piles that all need to go to the tip, it's at least 3 trailer loads and that...

Just a Natter

These are just the ramblings of a tired mind.   I'm sick of making lists, crossing off 4 things and adding another 2 things.   The tree loppers didn't turn up today neither did Johno the fencer and it didn't rain.   I have to start...

Wednesday Natter

It's starting to warm up and we've had good weather for 10 days now, I've been working in my garden getting it "not so busy", it has to present well if I'm ever going to sell this place, so have been removing, culling and just getting my hands dirty,...

Tuesday Natter

Monday Natter
