Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

....and she made me smile when I began to cook tea. She went straight to her bag and stuck her head in to check out if her food bowl was in there. Then looked at me as if to say "well I am obviously staying for dinner...get with the program Maz and put some food in my bowl..."

Babysitting son's Labrador. Stomach on legs that is constantly hanging about either the pantry door, the fridge door or the oven door.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Back is not too bad now, Stanley. I tend to get in weird positions as I sleep, because I've had an ankle problem for years and it can't take the weight of bedclothes. I actually sleep with a splint on each night, which helps. ( avoiding an operation at all costs). But getting comfy with the mangy an...

Re: IPad

I still have the iPad 1. Have had it over two years and the battery life has never faltered and no signs of it needing recharging more often. I would use my iPad at least four solid hours a day...in an on and off basis...and I only recharge it probably every fourth day and it takes that long for it ...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

We were driving home from the book exchange when I saw an amazing sight. Two crows flew across the road at a low height in front of our car. They were coming from the passenger side, where there was a McDonalds outlet in the car park of a shopping centre. My first focus was the crow trailing second....

But gosh....what a beautiful VIEW!

Big job, but glad we did. I remember the unusual sensation of the outside suddenl...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Hubby works in the building industry and designs a lot of houses, Tiz, and I can smell the gypsum in the product when we walk through homes that are being built. He can't smell it. I can probably pick out the odour because it has a similar tang to wet plaster applied to fractures. I have a pretty se...

Got the urge to completely empty out our guest bedroom and Spring clean it today. It is always neat and tidy, but it was a good day to strip the bed, flip the mattress, air the quilt, vacuum the skirting boards, wash the window and clean every darn slat of the timber blind. Where these urges come fr...

Re: Family Matters

I think things are changing in some respects. Hubby and I both sense that our ( combined) children will have no interest at all in worrying about us or caring for us in old age in the way that is probably currently accepted to be the norm. We feel it is our own responsibility to plan for ourselves.....
