When one is a little overwhelmed.....

This week, the loo packed up, the fridge shit its self, my washing machine started to pee on the floor and my combustion oven took up smoking.  So....I stacked wood.....firmly...... while reciting very lady like words, like dam it, fudgenuckles (fudgenuckles may have come from Google) and poop. 


Love to you and yours.  Leonie xx

Sure thing.  Go out and take photo's of things that make you happy.  

Finn is now 15 and living a full life with an ID.........I love this kid!

"Oh Lord, mama's got a new toy"

Now ladies, sometimes you have to plant that seed in the most obvious spot, water it a little and wait. Wait until lightning strikes him and he says..."Hey babe, I think we need a new hedge trimmer". we love them. 

Facts about new hedge trimmer.  I didn't go for the battery or fuel option because I was concerned about weight.  Electric was the way to go again and I'm ok with that.

Once upon a time....

I lived a life of a NORMAL PERSON.  I had a nice house with beige painted walls, matching sofa, crystal glasses and the perfect make up and hair.  I was, in my own stuck up, special way....quite posh.  Everything was perfect, the new house, the new car, the good job. The kids were clean and we were all so perfectly pretty.  

I now have a chook roaming in my house..........................Oh!  What a fall from grace I have fell. 

"Can someone PLEEEEEEEASE get chick-o-letta out of the GOD DAM HOUSE!!"

For your own entertainment, you would be delighted to know, it took 5 minutes of chasing said hen, with the help of 2 children and one labrador until capture was achieved.

July 22, 2014 I was torn.  Thinking of stepping away, not in love any more and I had given up hope.  But then last week I saw it on the shelf and invested yet again.....OH! IT WAS SO DAM GOOD TO BE BACK!! Tricky Twenty Two - FABULOUS!! 

If in the holidays you are looking for a whacky series to read, one with laugh out loud humour, go out and get Number 1...... "One for the Money" - Stephanie Plum Series by Janet Evanovich.  You just might get hooked!

So....I got to thinking

As you are aware from a previous post,  I poshed up the kids for their portraits and they turned out BEAUTIFUL.  

Then I got to thinking........What do we usually look like?  

This is me.
Covered in dirt.
Missing a tooth (still on order...hope to get it soon)
Bed/hat/been in the wind hair.
Need to loose 5 - 10 Kg.........not going to happen in a hurry.
Eyebrows needing a good shaping........must get onto that. 
Old bra showing..........lucky I've got one on. 
Skin on chest starting to show some wear.
Wrinkles strong and present. ......................and I couldn't give a shit.  

This is me.

She was all but DEAD

She was the last one standing at our local hall Plant one wanted her.  She looked crap.  She needed all her dead ends chopped off, a good dose of Charlie Carp to strengthen her up and some TLC. Variegated Aspidistra.......simply stunning.
