My dear Grandaughter, Amber, is 10 today.


Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.


It's also my first BLOGIVERSARY today.

I'd like to give someone a pressie, (possibly a package of fancy yarn stuff)..any takers??? come and say hi.
It's Wednesday here....and on Friday, names will go into a hat or something
similar...An independent party will dip in, grab out a name...IT COULD BE YOU.

Happy Hump Day Wednesday.

My lovely daughter in law....Tracey gave me these flowers on Sunday just gone..All home grown too. The garden is only small, but it is very well nurtured. Also, considering that water is like liqiud gold at the moment, she has done herself proud.


This set of 4 wheels will be named 'Nikki' after I take possession in 2 days time.
Unfortunately my car that I am driving at the moment, Carrolle Corolla, is being put into retirement. I think she is well past her use by date. But not to say she hasn't been good to me. For the small amount of $$$ she cost me, she more than did me good! It may sound a bit kooky, but a person's gotta have a name for their car...Nikki is a 'KIA'.

The fires are still raging here in the state of Victoria. So much damage has been done. Praying for rain.

A sincere THANKYOU to all the dedicated Firefighters and Volunteers who are doing a great job with their efforts in extinguishing this carnage. You are truly a special bunch of people.

Also CONGRATULATIONS to me. At the end of duty another 1 hour and 40 minutes.....TA DA....I will have completed 20 YEARS service in the same job! soooooo happy about that.

Hope everyone did have a good time wherever and however you saw in the New Year.

It certainly has been a while since I did a post. My dear Mum is having a few health issues. The medical teams etc are working on giving her a reasonable quality of living. My 'MA' will be 81 years young on the 7th Jan. She lives about 4 hours drive away....and I will travelling every other weekend to see her, starting tomorrow.

Keep well.....I'll be back!
