Today I will be staying home (all going well) and just enjoying the day.

I will do some sewing I think.
Well... that plus some housework I suppose.

I learnt yesterday of the very sudden and unexpected death of a dear blogger/facebook friend of mine from Australia.  Martine D was a very lovely lady, she will be sadly missed.  She's gone to be with her beloved wee dog Vince.  Rest In Peace Martine, gone far too soon.

You never know what is around the corner do you?  I say, wring everything you can out of each and every day.  Be kind, be considerate, be a true friend, be a good person.  Be happy.  


And now.. I'm off to get the kids ready for  school/kindy.


The 'poo spray' works by the way!  It eliminates odours... LIKE NOTHING I'VE EVER USED BEFORE.  Amazing stuff.  TOTALLY RECOMMEND IT.

Well it certainly has been a quiet day.  I've done quite a bit of washing, but bugger all else.  I'm totally crabby.  Too hot.  Too just... crabby.

I kinda do know why I'm crabby, but it's not something I can talk about on here.  Cos it will just cause too many ripples.
The most annoying thing about 'it' is, I can't do anything about it!

AND THAT DOES MY HEAD IN.  I find myself getting crabbier by the day lately too.  I must stop and remind myself that some things just ARE how they are.  Just wish I could throttle someone.

APRIL THE GIRAFFE:  Looked SO likely to be going into labour today... but NO.  She's now happily chewing her cud and doing NOTHING.  She's such a tease.  

So I'm having a shitty day.  Got something on my mind, that won't go away.  Nothing I can do about it so I really should just suck it up and move on I suppose.  

LOL... a friend posted this to my facebook page:

ABOVE:  And that is EXACTLY how it feels.  *smiles*

Winding down for the day.  I cooked a meat loaf with lots of veges in it for dinner... and Miss Keera ate all of her's, then had a second helping.  Way to get veges into a kid!
Even Stew ate silver beet... which he hates.  I love putting that stuff in my meat loaves!  hee hee.


  1. Dear Chris,
    I remember Martine from the WW's forums and her blog. And her gorgeous Vince. What happened? I am so sad to hear this. Karen

    1. Details are a bit sketchy, but it appears it might have been a blood clot travelling from her leg to her lungs.

  2. Hi de hi Chris.....just stopping by to say I haven't forgotten you or left the planet. I seem to spend most of my spare time doing genealogy stuff.....I love it......and not so much time doing anything else.
    Good to hear the little bottles work. I bought one from Green Goddess ( Wendyl Nissen) a year ago and it worked a treat too.
    Well done on resisting that ice cream......not sure I'd have been that strong. Have a great day xx

  3. So sorry for your dilemma - just remember tomorrow is another day. Sorry for the loss of your friend.

  4. Ah the joys of overthinking. It's hard but sometimes we need to live by the "If I can't do anything about it don't even think about it". It's the only reason I don't go insane half the time. It's not worth wasting the energy on things we can't change. Choose to actively think about things you CAN control. Choose to actively ignore the shit you can't change. Takes training but can be done :)

    1. Rather hard to ignore when 'it's' in your face 24/7, and you can't get away from it. I'm rapidly losing my shit.

    2. Perhaps the only thing to do is confront it head on then? Good luck chick xx

  5. You feel trapped, I get it xx

  6. Sorry to hear about your friend Chris, and your crabby mood....I've been in one for 2 days...I'm so sick of my face aching from frowning!!
    The smelly spray, do you spray it in the bowl first? I've seen Poo Pourie and that's how you use it.

    1. Yep, spray into bowl before use. It works wonders!

  7. So sorry to read about Martine, I love meatloaf you usually make heaps and freeze it? Perhaps make up frozen meals for Keera to reheat eat when she hungry and then she can eat before loosing it, how the sewing machine going?
