ANOTHER DAY DAWNS....

GOOD MORNING! Another good sleep I've had... yes indeed. I've woken up feeling FANTASTIC. Yaaaaa.

It will be interesting to see how tired I get today... if those pretty little pills knock me out again in the middle of the day? I hope not.

I'm feeling GREAT... top of the world. Made some decisons overnight about a few things.... one is a BIGGIE which I will start work on real soon. Need to sort out some family stuff.... to look after the future so to speak.

But for right now.. I'm gunna go outside and muck around in the garden... get some more vege plants in... do a bit of weeding... hope it doesn't rain!

OMG... I just thought of the perfect solution to a problem .... this blog is going to go private! That way I can protect my personal stuff from people I DON'T WANT reading or knowing anything about me!



SO... in about a week... it will be private... giving YOU who I like time to get permission to read it! So, send me a comment or email so I can add you to the list before this goes private..I will NEED your EMAIL address to add you to the list! There can only be 100 readers on a private blog.... so I will probably set up a second DIET COKE ROCKS blog so I can add everyone! They will be identical.... so don't worry!

IF you have permission to read PEPSI, you will not need to ask me for an invite to read Diet Coke Rocks, as Pepsi is going to be DIET COKE ROCKS 2... it will be exactly the same as this one!

"PICK ME..PICK ME" is not going to cut it this time sorry. I need to KNOW you... you need to prove you are who you say you are... I am not letting total random strangers read my blog anymore. This way I protect my blog from UNWANTED readers. OK.

PHEW! It has taken me almost all morning to set up PEPSI as 'Diet Coke Rocks 2' ... so that I have room to keep all my faithful readers/commentors! I hope you get in touch with me real soon so I can add you to the list of readers....

End of Day: I'm exhausted from all the to'ing and fro'ing from one blog to the other... but it will be worth it to keep my blog.. even if it is private!

Got dinner sorted.. steak and salad for grown-ups, cherrios and baked beans for the kids! nite nite.

  7. Very good idea, but I will be so sad if I'm not invited cstorey55@gmail.com. I don't have a blog anymore but I'll start it back up ( a picture blog - carolinafromargentina ) if that's a requirement to read your private blog. I always read, years now, and occasionally comment because I lurrrrrve your blog!

  8. Sometimes just making a big decision can make you feel better, you may find that you will sleep OK now without the wee pills.

    I would love to continue reading

  9. So glad you're sleeping better. Makes a world of difference, doesn't it? What is the name of the little blue pills? I know viagra are little blue pills but I doubt you would need them!

    Needless to say, please add me to the list. You have my address but let me know if you need it again and I'll email it to you (I'm a bit wary about posting it where anyone can get it.)

    Have a great day!!

  24. Hi Chris

    Glad to hear the pills are working, lack of sleep (as a chronic insomniac) is not good. Families - do love them but.

    My email address is mdally@internode.on.net.

    Add me to the list, I love your blog and its honesty

  25. Sorry, I didn't mean to sound weird. I'm a regular reader from Melbourne and have been following your blog for years. I noticed that a lot of lurkers were coming out and I thought it was about time I did too.

    I totally understand if you want to keep the blog open to regular commentators. All the best. Sarah

  26. Hi Chris

    I left my email address once before when you said to for an invite to Pepsi but for some reason it wasn't forthcoming.

    If you want to add me I am at colleenbarnett94@gmail.com :-)

    However, as we don't really know each other, if you wish to keep it private then I wish you all the best, your read is always a good one! Nice to see some good things happening in your life!

  27. Hi Chris,
    So glad you are getting some rest! That makes a world of difference on how you face the day. I know this because my doctor gave me some meds to get some sleep from my fibromyalgia and it is amazing the difference that it makes.
    I feel like you are one of my virtual-sisters and hope I am allowed to come with you on your new journey - if not - I understand.
    Blessings to you and yours

  31. Hi Chris,
    I'm glad you had a good night's sleep again. Wish I could say the same...

    We got crap news today. Hubby had a great job prospect that fell through today. Not how I wanted to start off Dec. Oh well.

    I'm glad you are feeling good about family decisions...I've got to work on doing the same.

  32. Another good night of sleep? That's awesome! Hope it continues.

    I'd like to keep reading, if you'd like to keep me along of course. ;o) You make me laugh, and I rather enjoy getting to see all the pretty things you make. It's inspiring.

  37. Now don't laugh at this..... but a racehorse trainer once told me that they put marmite on their horse's warts.

    He did it with our horse and lo & behold it worked!

    I would suggest if you are going to try this then just pop a dob of it on Griffin's finger and then pop a plaster over it. I guess it takes a little while for the wart to suffocate so you may need to do it over the course of say......a month (couple of times a week)?

    Might save him the pain of burning them off.....

    Glad you are feeling on top of the world.

  51. Hi Chris
    I have been out of computer world for a few weeks as we have shifted house and living with Mum & Dad for 3 weeks (1 week to go now yeah!!) so have only been reading it once a week at work and very quickly - and just noticed you are going private. Would love an invite but understand if you don't want too.. Had a quick flick back through your old entries and can't see anything about WW, you put it on the back burner like me aye!!!Have really missed my Chris fix, some times I even log on before you have done your first entry of the day!!! Take Care :-)
