On Friday 23rd Feb......

....this was taken as I was driving to the country to see mum...about 300 kms...with a mobile phone....hand hanging out the window...Actually the sunset was a lot nicer than in the pik.

Mum and I had a really good weekend..the nursing home where she is now, is really nice and comfortable, and the staff....I have never met a nicer group of carers. It makes me feel more at ease knowing she is in good hands. We both look forward to every second weekend. It's a long drive...I worked it out that I drive approx 800kms every second weekend....but she's worth it.

My niece, Asheleigh is 20 tomorrow....Happy Birthday Ashe....Oooh, and I just realised my eldest son will be 31 this year. . . and my "Baby Boy" is just 27....Dear me, I don't feel young when these sort of numbers come to mind...

Happy Tuesday everyone.

24 and COUNTING !

Yes, it's only 24 days to the Melbourne Grand Prix. This was taken about an hour and a half ago, and as you can see the works are in full progress. And almost diagonally across from this scene will be where a group of friends and I will be partying. I just love this time of the year...the build up to the GP is electrifying.

In the meantime I have joined SWAP-BOT ..This is going to prove interesting and this is the first time I have done such a thing. Am very eagerly awaiting my first swap package....and three more in the near future..

There has been more stash enhancement of late..(only himself above knows why)..I sure don't know why...just can't help myself..

Something funny to finish off with....I tried to knit from a graph...HUH...no way Charlie... I am now in the process of reading & writing out the whole pattern in long hand.......aaaah, that'll teach me!

Oh dear, this blogger thing is coming VERY CLOSE to doing my head in...At first it forced me to switch to the "New & Better version"...HUH!!!, and consequently wiped the Flickr badge from the blog. Am I the only one who this has happened to?
Now the brain cells are attempting to work overtime in order to rectify this problem. Any advice would be handy.
I think I need a drink.
