Flashing my wares!

I don't tend to talk much about the shit stuff but just before christmas, I was given the chop from my casual job because of restructuring. It was a crap time when I felt hurt and a bit beaten up. ANYWAY, I got to thinking about what I needed to do with myself. There is very few part time jobs in our bush town at the moment and I was missing the social interaction of co-workers and lets be honest.....me staying at home by myself, ALL THE TIME....not so flash for my mental state!!

I'm lucky that Dave has full time work so I decided to enter the Volunteer workforce. It's no secret that we have a child with additional needs and I have always love horses (even though I haven't had one for 20 odd years!) So off to the RDA - Horse Riding for the Disabled I went. Now.......I get to hang out with some lovely juicy people, some amazing kids and I get the job of "Stick painter and decorator!"

Can you remember when........

You'd jump on your roadster bike with the big handles and long seat. You'd have your mate dinking (who dinks any more?) on the back, the wind flowing in your hair flicking into your buds face. Your flares would catch in the chain and you'd scrape your toes because your double pluggers were just too cool for school.

You'd spot the boys hanging around the local milk-bar siting on the top of the bench seat talking tough. You hope one day your boobs would grow even enough so you could courageously look them in the eye.

You'd dump your bike at the door and head in to see Mrs Frantantara and spend the 20c you had burning in your pocket.

It has come to my attention, that my hippy organicish children have never experienced the humble LIFESAVER!!! My neighbors hippy organicish children haven't either!! I know we shouldn't let our children eat crap but SERIOUSLY how can you go through life without at least experiencing a FRUIT TINGEL!!! What's the world coming too!

It's all taken care of. Friday night the children with gather, there will be much discussion, sampling and hyper activity. I may even extend on the experience and allow them to cleanse their palate with a Chockie BIG M!!

What do you do when you have been with an author for YEARS and YEARS and you are up the 21st book in the series and you begin to fall a little out of love........

Do you persist?

Do you walk away?

I'm torn....I don't want to walk away...but I need more RANGER action!!

When one has a purple lounge, bright floral carpet and red windows, one may find it difficult to purchase a cushion to ones liking...........

Thank the heavens for ECHINO I say!!

Overcoming the Internal Bathroom

We have an internal bathroom. One with a window that looks out to another room. I loath it. For years I have battled with the lack of fresh air and the feeling that it's a cave.


Now I love it. It feels all fresh and cleaner. I should have done this years ago!!

Sewing flat things are my strength......this dimensional stuff, is NOT!

It's fiddly, annoying and ugly! However, the eldest elf LOVES IT. He looooooves it so much that when I confiscated it, (due to opening the wood fire to dispose of his scrap paper, in which subsequently flew out again ALIGHT, ALAS NEARLY BURNING THE BLOODY HOUSE DOWN!!!), that he has been crying for the last hour!!!

Who new such a creation could have so much power......I may use it again!

I may even set the bloody toy on fire if he tries that sort of shit again.

Pesky bloody KIDS!!

Before & After - Lounge Reno


It was time...... The kids have grown up a bit, their ability to destroy everything in sight has passed with age and to be honest......I'd had enough. I put the foot down and a new lounge was on order. I'm sure your can understand why.......

oh...yes folks...I lived with this for a while...you could say years....one could say, mumma STOMPED that foot down!

CHECK IT OUT!!! With a splash of new paint, free carpet and fire place slate (slate found in a neighbours paddock from their demolition project), I have a new lounge.....Posh....very posh indeed!

Oh..the pic's are a little funny......that new lounge is PURPLE! Dave picked it out, don't you just love a man that is in touch with his Aubergine side!!
