First up for the day, as requested by Sharon:

ABOVE:  A lovely picture of her son Samuel and his girlfriend Sharni, I think this was taken before a school ball?

Cute couple.

Now, what's the haps today?

First up.  I go to the Doctor.... and hopefully she can change my blood pressure medication... cos the stuff I have right now is making me hot flushes WORSE!

Next up... feed the kids before taking Teddy to the groomers at 1pm.
He goes today, Coco is going next week.  

So, I drop Teddy off, and come home in time to put Keera to bed for her afternoon nap.

THEN I can do a bit more tidying up in the garage, it's the last section (all the tools, nails etc) that I have to do, then my 'ALMOST? SPRING DE-CLUTTERING will be done!  Yaaaaa.

Right, that's me for now... catch ya later...


oooH... not been on here all day!  Told ya I was busy.
Well... I've been referred to a Gynacologist to see what can be done (if anything) for the hot flushes.
I suggested they rip me ovaries out!  But Juliet said "NO".  Pfffffft.   If I could do it myself I bloody well would.

Onward.  Teddy is at the groomers.  He whimpered and yapped all the way there... I wanted to kill the little bugger.

Lacy pointed  out something I hadn't noticed up the road:

ABOVE:  I am taking FULL CREDIT for this!  Look what happens when you report speeding buses, and threaten to walk out in front of them to make them slow down!

A speed sign, letting you know just how fast you are going as you enter the 'S' bend!  That corner has also been resealed and fresh road markings painted on.

My work is done.  *smiles*

ABOVE:  I had company while I sat on the side of the road... he/she kept stalking me, looking at me from various angles... very funny little bird.

ABOVE:  Both littlies trying to put the neck cushions on.  Dante was a bit better than Keera!
9/10 for effort though.  These two are very entertaining.  The other two bigger kids... are getting bored.

Thank goodness school is back in on Monday.

Right, I'm off to catch a nana nap, I'm freakin' tired!  Keera makes lots of noise in her sleep, and wakes up too... so ... not a good sleep for us.

End of Day:  I had a quick nap on the couch before the toddlers woke up from their midday naps.  It was lovely.
Then I decided to make homemade meat balls with homemade sweet 'n' sour sauce.  It took me over 2 hours just to make the bloody meatballs!  I don't think I'll be doing that again in a hurry... though dinner was really yum.
*sigh* thought I would get to bed a bit earlier than 'usual' but no... here I am at 11.11 pm and I'm still up.  But not for much longer!
nite nite


  1. When I came across this on FB this morning, I had to think of you / Bex: Looks pretty neat, maybe I'll go and revive my crotcheting after 30+ years? Have a great day, Monika

  2. Awww that is one of me fav photos, and yep before school ball. MEGA FROSTY here, hope you find your other neck cushion in a cupboard? Under something? In a bag? In someone else's room?

  3. You are doing very well Chris - it's not even August and you have nearly finished the spring cleaning! Penny xo

    If your didn't have your ovaries your hot flushes would even be worse! as your are still getting some oestrogen from them.. lol...hopefully the gyno will sort something out for you...


  5. Well done on the speed sign. It pays to speak up. Xxx

  6. You definitely deserve kudos for the changes to that road.

  7. Hopefully you get the hot flushes under control somehow. Have a good weekend.

  8. I can't believe they actually did something about that curve, Good job! What is the speed limit there anyhow?
