Cherise Wins!

Let’s go back to 2009. Within a few days of buying our new little puppy Cherise Gavin went insane.  No this was not our first dog; I had lived with dogs all my life and we had owned 4 as a couple. Gavin had always made fun of people; like my parents, who bought coats … Continue reading Cherise Wins!

Weather Forecast

Our eldest is going to Super Nova or some such thing tomorrow and is a bit nervous.  Not because of the possible gravitation issues, its a collecting, sci/fi thingamajig not a astrological whatsit.  I think my linguistic skills are compromised by a lack of sleep. Anyway she is nervous because she is basically a recluse … Continue reading Weather Forecast

Disasters at KSP Writer’s Club

At KSP Writer's Circle our facilitator made a terrible mistake; she asked if anyone had an idea for a writing exercise.  My hand shot up like lightening realising that it was only a matter of time before someone thought of a good idea.  My idea's only chance was speed. I recommended we all write about … Continue reading Disasters at KSP Writer’s Club

My Computer Has Astrophobia

That's right; poor Sebastian (that's his name) is afraid of thunder & lightning.  I always thought it was brontophobia but I believe the internet).  First we learn brontosauruses are Apatosaurus, now brontophobes are astrophobes. How do I know that my poor baby is scared.  He stops working and hides down inside himself. He won't even … Continue reading My Computer Has Astrophobia

I Can’t Be Underwater It’s February

This is the third post in a row that was written on paper as a single thought a week and a half ago. Of course I can make 3 posts out of a single thought; look at how many posts I've made containing no thoughts at all.  If you don't believe me, read them. Myah … Continue reading I Can’t Be Underwater It’s February

The Weather Has Gone Insane

Okay it's not the same batty time, my mega nap raged out of control, 1 hour became 4.  Why oh why won't my family use their evil noise powers for good instead of evil. Now if this is going to make any sense you must read Is Summer Southern Winter? because if I have to write … Continue reading The Weather Has Gone Insane

Is Summer Southern Winter?

Reading all the winter blogs I was struck with a realisation; actually I tend to come to this realisation all the time but until recently I didn't have a forum to rant about it.  My children & husband are easily bored and in the case of my children vociferous in their disinterest, Gav just looks … Continue reading Is Summer Southern Winter?

Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 1

While we were driving along the other night hunting for Christmas lights the weirdness of what we were doing struck me. Now that our faulty modem has been replaced I am planning to resume my blogging but having accumulated over 6000 posts to read in my absence I won't be looking at my backlog. Anyway … Continue reading Christmas in 40*C. – Light Hunting in Perth Part 1

Spring

Alas it is that time of year when Winter turns to Spring! The weather warms then chills again; to give our lives some zing. The garden flowers? Overtaken by weeds before they have a chance. And stupid people on TV talk of joys of Spring & dance. The pollen flies to every nose & eye, to … Continue reading Spring
