Monday Mutterings 1st Nov 2010

"Best laid plans of mice and men" always seem to go somewhat astray, we managed to get a small amount of work completed this weekend, Saturday was a complete disaster, 26 yo and 27 yo both stated they had a stomach wog (yeah I was born...

Another Thursday natter

Today I looked around and realized that it was another perfect Sydney Spring day, yes we had rain, it was actually colder than average, yet I'm sure that the sun peeked through the clouds far more often than it was hidden.  My day...

A bit of a Thursday natter

Thank you Colorado Dreamin for the Information on how to use a background colour for our posts. I love it how each day someone comes up with an answer to our problems, hopefully this will stop me from having to get new eyes, as they are...

Inspired by Pastimes

About 20 years ago ~ you know when your still full of yourself ~ I noticed an old lady living in her car, just up the road from where we lived, all the neighbours were up in arms about her, complaining that she was bringing down the neighbourhood,...

Monday Mutterings 25 October 2010

It's not been a good week, it's been hard toiling away in my garage dungeon staining windows for installation, I needed to have the slider and window stained and UV protected for the weekend, Sunday was to be installation day, I kept my side of the...

Boring photo's

I finally took some photo's of the windows I've been staining, so get ready to fall asleep with boredom My car used to reside here, before I took up residence to stain windows, notice the step stool in the foreground, well these windows are...

Monday Mutterings on Wednesday night

I'm tired, I've spent weeks staining windows, being a one arm Polish apprentice to  a builder and a carpenter, do they realize that I'm 57, 5'2" and only 50 kilo's and I'm actually incapable of doing what they expect of me, yet somehow I manage to do...

Spell check

Why does spell check work on comments but not on posts ~ I've got 3 arguements now 4 going on in my comments, I've rather enjoyed over the past months argueing with spell check over how us Aussies and English spell words :bigsmile:  

Life changing decisions

This is a repost of something I posted in February this year and deleted from thoughts.com when they decided to add a Face book icon, it's part of who I am and what I am so I'm re-posting it because now I have a choice and I have blocked...

I Love you

  I Love you. Three words that taken by themselves do not mean a great deal,  these three words put together can change our world and how we think. Loving is such a beautiful thing,  giving, receiving and accepting love is a...

The House that Jerry "Bilt"

The house that Jerry 'Bilt' has come to a halt ~ my contribution at least ~ it's looking quite forlorn, I have no outside cladding on 2 walls, 1 wall has been completely finished, with new windows, the Aluminium siding removed along with the 'fibro ~...

Looking at both sides now

Charity, life is what we put into it, what we get out of it, we can deal with adversity, we can roll with the punches, get up shake ourselves off and start again, however slowly and step by step being human we have this unsquashable spirit, we roll,...

Monday mutterings 11 October 2010

Well it’s been quite a huge week, managed to get five windows completely finished, the boys have put in one and are working on the second (which is a double) as I’m typing this.  I say boys (or rather they are both men now ~ but will always be my boys...

Who I am

  Lately I’ve been asking myself who am I? There is easy answers, I’m a daughter, sister and mother, I’m no longer a wife or lover ~these are hard sad answers to that question, in a lot of respects I’ve lost my identity, that very special part of...

So Frustrated

I've just spent the most unproductive 2 hours of my life. My major pump for the Koi pond has decided to go into decline, it's been misbehaving for the past 4 days, stopping every 10 minutes and starting again about 90 seconds later. When I first...

Comments

Thoughts support or thoughts programers please return our comments back to the oldest first, so that we can work our way down from the first to the last, instead of wondering about other's ESP.  Another thing what happened to my spell check, so loved...

This is so annoying

I've just about had it, I live in a totally different hemisphere to thoughts.com, I am actually at the moment 15 hours ahead of the American contingent, since the transition to thoughts 3.0 trying to keep up with my friends posts has become a total...

Monday Mutterings 4 October 2010

Yes I know it's Tuesday and I'm behind, but yesterday Monday was a Public Holiday here "Labour Day" and yes I still labour.  5 Out of the 8 windows have been completely stained and UV protected, they were all surposed to go in over Saturday and...

It's really just an adventure

If there is one thing I've learned over the years, life is really just an adventure, you make it whatever you want, you can boldly go forward with your plans, or meekly take a backwards stance. Some of the adventures that life's thrown at me I haven't...
