A little sad

I'm feeling a little sad just at the moment, I'm close to tears yet I know I've done the right thing.  The last few days have taken a real toll on my peace of mind, after lots and lots of discussions and finally convincing Mike that it wasn't going to...

Sometimes it just doesn't feel right

Sometimes it seems that you just have to accept the inevitable and the things that you'd really like to progress along a different road just aren't going to go that way at all.  I've had a busy couple of weeks, busy in the normal way that my days seem...

Getting from here to there

Sometimes I really wish that I had the words to describe the vastness of this "sunburnt land" and the distances that we  travel keeping in touch with each other, compared to Europe, England, USA and Asia this is a very sparsely populated land, once...

Exit ~ stage right

I'm out of here, got an early start tomorrow around 6 am leaving here ~ it's past my use by hour now.  Have a good weekend everybody.    I'm off to Dubbo tomorrow for my nieces wedding. Long drive over 7 hours.   Ciao

Naughty thoughty

After my blog yesterday "Just a quickie", naughty thoughts have been going through my head all night.  This morning at breakfast I started to tease poor Mike ~ yes tease in a naughty way.  We got quite risque in more ways than one, then he finally...

Just a quickie

When your male and young you come with a bang, satisfy yourself, roll over and go to sleep, I refuse to comment on  morning glory, somewhere along the line you learn that there's 2 people involved here.  At this stage in life your not capable of much...

Wednesday Natter

I'm really tired, I've finally got the house back together, not sorted yet, but most things are back where they belong.  27 yo has an enormous amount of crud to deal with, none of this crud is allowed back into his room, he has to deal with it, go...

Tuesday Natter

Today was "C" day ~ carpet day and I'm exhausted beyond belief, I'm not sure when I've worked so hard over a 4 day period, but it's done now and I'm starting to put everything back together.  I've had a massive argument with Mike, I just want to walk...

Sunday Natter

A visit from the fun police ~ more on that later.   Today Mike turned the big 60, his operation has thrown all plans for his surprise 60th birthday party into disarray, his girls have worked really hard and organized a lunch BBQ here, he had no...

Saturday Natter

Wow the weekend is almost half over here, thinking about what sort of "take away" we can order that will suit 4 different appetites, we all enjoy Indian, but Mike is worried about a curry making him cough, sigh, we've found a compromise that has...

Question time at the Zoo

Q. How many times do you have to tell a 28 yo son that you've just painted the back step and please don't walk on it?   A. At least 4 times cause that's how many of his foot prints are showing up.   Q.  If the label say's that the paint is...

Wednesday Natter

I'm seeing the end of the road now, I'm seeing that everything is coming together, but I'm over it, I'm finding those last things so hard to do.  I understand how my son's feel this has been a weekend project for more than a year, I've put in my week...

Rea ~ Mylifepath

I gave you the opportunity to post your say on my blog, which you did, then you posted a blog about me yet didn't give me the same right shame, shame, shame.  You've just proved me right, your a very, very sad person who needs a lot of professional...

Mylifepath

Rea,   You've gone too far, you've pushed all the boundaries of credibility and I can no longer sit back and hope someone will out you.  Rea my husband died almost 8 years ago, he died in the most awful way you could possibly imagine, I still...

Wednesday Natter

There falling like flies, gee I've really caused the start of a family war, spent a lot of today talking to my siblings, my poor sister-in-law who was in tears about what he said, she took it as a joke, yet I took it seriously, my nieces and nephews...

Tuesday Natter

Gee sometimes I really stick my foot into it and cannot deal with the resulting storm ~ here's my dilemma we have 2 family weddings one on the 28th September the other on 18th November, these are my brothers girls and I've had an incredible...

Sunday Natter

I think it's just the change of season cold I have, but my bones are feeling quite old today, they are weary it's either the cold I've got or I just did too much for a body that is feeling challenged today.  As I worked today repainting fences that...

Half done Harry jobs

I've been renovating this house since June last year, slowly at first then I gained momentum, lost it and inertia set in around about the time I discovered all the "half done Harry job's" that plagued this castle that I call home.  The half done Harry...

The Toilet Seat lid

In January when my sister was helping me paint the laundry she stood on the lid of the toilet to reach higher and broke the lid, she promised to buy a new one but never did.  Eventually when I was in the hardware store I purchased an easy fit new...
