ABOVE: darling Coco in the washing basket... so cute. She is just the most lovely wee dog.

I'm sick of being home ... I'm going out. Not sure where, or to do what... but OUT!

While I'm out... here's a 'funny' I got via email yesterday:


Between 18 and 22, a woman is like Africa - half discovered, half wild, fertile and naturally beautiful!

Between 23 and 30, a woman is like Europe -well-developed and open to trade, especially for something of real value.

Between 31 and 35, a woman is like Spain - very hot, relaxed, and convinced of her own beauty.

Between 36 and 40, a woman is like Greece & gently aging, but still a warm and desirable place to visit.

Between 41 and 50, a woman is like Great Britain, with a glorious and all-conquering past..

Between 51 and 60, a woman is like Israel - has been through war, doesn't make the same mistakes twice, and takes care of business.

Between 61 and 70, a woman is like Canada - cool, self-preserving, but open to meeting new people.

After 70, she becomes Tibet - wildly beautiful, with a mysterious past and the wisdom of the ages.... an adventurous spirit and a thirst for spiritual knowledge.


Between 1 and 80, a man is like Iran - ruled by nuts. THE END.


Been out, did some banking... got a few extra groceries as we have dinner guests tonight (Aunty and Uncle up the road)... not much else! Had a good look around a Scrapbook shop in Mt Wellington... but nothing caught my eye and screamed "BUY ME!"... so I am now home contemplating doing the vacuming. Oh yaaaaaa....

Vacuming a Wash Floors a Dinner in oven a Dust and Polish a

Relax for a little while ... *sigh*. There was a good reason why I invited guests over for dinner! It made me do the floors if nothing else! As it has been raining A LOT lately, Teddy and Coco have been traipsing in and out with grubby paws and leaving me floors dirty... I have been meaning to mop the floors for days... now it's done!

End of Day: first time in YEARS... I stuffed up me dinner! Well ... not the dinner exactly... it was the dessert! I burnt me fruit pies... really well too! GUTTED by it ... felt dreadful serving up burnt pies and custard to our guests! Weird thing, they still ate them... I think they were just being nice. THANKS. nite nite.


  1. Ha ha! That's a great post! And TRUE!! Love it Chris! Have a great day!

  2. Oh my gosh, that REALLY made me laugh out loud! Too funny and too true!



  3. I'm stealing this! Have a great day!

  4. That is really funny. Just caught up with your last 4 days. Glad you enjoyed your book. It is shame that everything else has to go on hold while you read. I can't just read for 20cmins before bed like some people, when I get into a book, I have to read it to the end, no matter what else is going on


  5. Ha, Ha!

    Love it.Mysterious past, intriguing.

  6. Lol Lol!!! This was funny, and very close to being true!! Great post!

    Love that little Coco! What a cutie!

    So has your lovely soup unclogged your plumbing yet? It had plenty of fibre in it so it should have! That email is a hoot and so true about men except it should be aged 1 to 100! You should take some really cute photos of Coco (if she can be any cuter!) and maybe put them on some of your cards, because thats who Coco reminds me of, those cute little puppies you see on birthday cards, etc. WOMBAT

  8. I loved your post about a woman and a man. It was so true and so funny!

    How did your soup turn out?? I thought it sounded terrific!

    Your little cocoa is so precious!

    I guess I'll have to eat enough prunes for both of us! LOL
    Some people do eat them stewed - YUCK! I can't stand them that way.

    Enjoy your company!

    Coco is a cutie for sure! She makes me chuckle at the things she does. Hope your dinner goes well. You'll have to tell us what delightful dinner you made! and dessert!...debbie

  10. Loved that joke, definitely going to share it around. Soup looks yummo, but then most soups are, bet that one did the job it was created for.

  11. I ♥ ♥ ♥ the geography lesson.....hilarious! Too cute!

  12. Hey

    Love the picture.


  13. let me guess you were baking desert drinking totara cafe and yakking fussing over family and guests and having a good time OK a picture is building you were just a little distracted its no biggy I bet the custard was nice...

  14. hi its me checking in!!!!!!! :) love the woman thing... and post below... I LOVE reading but am scared to pick up a good book cause i know me i wont put it down!!! have a pile of them waiting on me :)

  15. I agree about having guests over... it's a good excuse to do some house cleaning.

  16. I clean up a storm when I have visitors. We don't get many visitors.

    Coco is adorable!

    Sigh... I really should wash my floors. I suppose I'll get to it sometime today.

    I will figure out how much it will cost to ship the books and let you know... probably later in the week though.

  18. Does Coco still drag things in to chew on? I can see how that would make keeping the floor clean a bit of a chore!

  19. Ha very good, thanks for sharing. My dog tracks in the mud too, and it drives me absolutely nuts. Have a wonder day.

  20. this post is funny, and then reading you burnt your pies I began to wonder if me friend has a fever? That's a shocker you messing up in the kitchen.

    your puppy is a little doll, so cute.
