Christmas in 40*C – Addendum

The Original The more eagle eyed of my readers may have noticed that Cat was missing from the light hunting photos.  And that Natasha's shorts are far too short (she's 13 and she could pass for 18, life is not fair for parents of girls). Cat had started house sitting for 3 days, 2 nights … Continue reading Christmas in 40*C – Addendum

KSP Challenge – The Wrong Question Part 2 Alex’s Guest Post.

This is Alex's piece for the challenge described in KSP Challenge. This year parents told Natasha how Santa Claus was a spirit that used them and other believers as helpers during the Christmas season. Unlike the rest of us, she was devastated, which has kinda left me confused and sad for baby sister. I don't … Continue reading KSP Challenge – The Wrong Question Part 2 Alex’s Guest Post.

KSP Challenge – The Wrong Question

Warning depressing & strong language. I've been meaning to write this for some time (you know; computer problems, put it on the back burner).   The last week before the end of year party ( you know; when Alex & I were cast adrift so our fellow Writer's Circle participants could have lives over the … Continue reading KSP Challenge – The Wrong Question

Autism Is Hilarious, Cricket Not So Much

Sometimes when one of my children does something totally crazy; like refusing to stop pouring my drink even though I have already poured myself one; until I have to wrestle the can out of her hand; because her father told her to fill it to half. I think Autism is hilarious! Unless you have to … Continue reading Autism Is Hilarious, Cricket Not So Much

Christmas & Clamshells – A Cutting Combination

You've heard it before and until someone legislates you will hear it again.  I hate modern packaging.  I read an article a while back that people are actually being injured, even hospitalised opening packaging.  Plastic as sharp as knives needing to be cut opened at an angle that forces the opener to leave their veins … Continue reading Christmas & Clamshells – A Cutting Combination

Christmas Spirits?

A few days before Christmas I was wrapping presents late at night.  The children were all asleep and behind a closed door, my husband had stepped into the front room.  I saw a grey shadow unmoving in front of the closed door.  I knew it was a man although I cannot describe any features.  I … Continue reading Christmas Spirits?

Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 4

Part 1 Sensible people will want to start reading at part 1 and read through in the correct order; that is because they are sensible (not boring, now that isn't very nice) & that is the sensible way of doing things.  Crazy people will like the order I put them in because I too am … Continue reading Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 4

Christmas Is Not Over

Computer problems, internet problems, health problems and people demanding I do useless stuff like parenting & eating have resulted in my not havingwritten everything I wanted to about Christmas. So what you might say?  You write rubbish about nothing.  Nobody cares! Well, I care!  I had plans, and I am autistic.  There are plans, they … Continue reading Christmas Is Not Over

Orion’s Christmas Gift

Finally proof Orion is the sweetest, most thoughtful cat in the world. About 4:00 this afternoon we heard a mighty crash in the front room.  Bang, boom, scratching sounds and sounds like glass breaking.  Orion came tearing out of the room straight past me as I rushed in. Our lovely tree! Broken, ornaments possibly shattered, … Continue reading Orion’s Christmas Gift

Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 3

Part 1. Part 2. Read these in any order.  Nothing I write makes enough sense for reading in order to be important.  Unless you get confused; then try reading them in order.  If you are reading them in order & you are still confused: Ha Ha they said it wasn't contagious but it can be. … Continue reading Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 3
