Welcome strangers, to the show.......

GooooD Mooorrnning, Blogggererrrlanddd!!!!



Do you think that's how Adrian Cronauer/Robin Williams would write it it???




Friday morning in Blogmuggle land is cool, crisp and quiet. We had our first frost of the year yesterday. I hosed off the car so that Beloved and I could drive him to work, and by the time I had turned off the hose and walked back to the car, the windscreen had started to freeze up again. No wonder we go through so many windscreen wiper blades; in the summer time, they perish from the heat and continual washing off of dust, and in the winter time they are eroded from scraping off the icy stuff.........



And the fog was amazing too..............



I'm sitting here at 9.30am, dressed in a pair of old trackkies, holey old navy school socks, a pair of old suede clogs on my feet, topped off with my fuzzy old dressing gown with stars on it, and my favourite purple corduroy coat buttoned up over the top. Yep, I'm an absolute picture of style......


But I'm warm.........



Congratulations to all those out there who have participated or will participate in Australia's Biggest Morning Tea. We had a great morning at work yesterday, with our residents, families, members of the community, and the residents from the retirement village next door visit our place. There's was an amazing array of food supplied, and it was not to be consumed by those who are faint at heart where calories are concerned.... Country women can cook!!!!!!!! YUMMMMM!!!!! The final head count was around 65-70 attendees, and around $450 raised for the Cancer Council of NSW!!!!!


Morning tea was served on our front veranda on a beautiful sun-drenched autumn day, and the lovely Norma entertained us with a singalong. Norma is retiring later on in the year. Actually, she retired from her position as a school principal a few years ago, and has been working in the community ever since. She and her fab hubby, Bob, are moving to Lithgow......... She will be so very missed.......




A big THANK YOU to all those who helped cook, serve and clean up. And to my wonderful resi's who gladly parted with coins that they really couldn't afford.




What else has been happening???????????



Well, to answer Jen's query, Scorpaboy came in 4th place on Sunday. And he and Beloved will travel to Sydney to ride again this Sunday. I'm staying home with Vegeboy, who has football in Muswellbrook on Saturday, then another game at Kurri Kurri (so nice, they named it twice...)on Monday night.


And while I'm talking about Vegeboy, his visit to the specialist went well on Tuesday. Dr Avi Lemberg works out tof the Children's Hospital at Randwick, and if you ever need a paediatric gastroenterologist (and I hope you don't), then he's the one. He was kind, professional, related extraordinarily well to Vegeboy and us, making us feel comfortable with the situation, and positive with his treatment and potential outcomes. And our lovely Vegeboy has been surprisingly mature and matter-of-fact about all the poking and prodding. He has a sense of humour, that one. He has undergone more bloodtests, and has medication to take. We have another appointment for review in July.

And here's the really amazing thing.......

DR LEMBERG WAS ON TIME! .......

AND TOOK US IN FOR OUR CONSULTATION EVEN THOUGH WE WERE EARLY!!!!!!


I've still been driving Beloved to work as the No-Motor-Toyota still hasn't been fixed yet....... Hmm.... definitely a bargain purchase, that one. He drove it to work for 3 mornings.... I haven't even bothered changing over the registration papers or the insurance yet..... We could have fixed the car we already have sitting in the yard...... I think we're up to about $500......... And it's due for rego in the next 6 weeks or so.......

NO WORK FOR ME UNTIL TUESDAY!!!!!! (hehehehe)


This morning, I've booked Clover into the vets to be desexed. We've had her since the end of November last year, and she came into season in the first three days that we had her. She's been behaving in an unusual manner....... digging a hole in the carpet as she fussily turns around and around and around before sitting down, taking things that are ours and sitting on them, chewing things up... I couldn't book her in until June 6th.... if she can hold out that long.....
And finally, A big shout out to my Sister-in-law, Lisa, who secured herself a great new job!
!!!!!!! Way to go Lisa !!!!!!!!
Any woman who takes on my brother for life, and rewards him with the gift of 3 gorgeous children deserves a big pat on the back.... and maybe some prozac...... LOL, Love you Bro <3>
I'll have to post some piccies of these angels.......
Anyway, the washing, bill-paying, shopping and housework awaits. I know I said this all last time, but I really didn't do it
then..........
Now you're getting an image of the true nature of the Blogmuggle............
HMMMM....One day I might work out how the paragraphs text size and spacing work...This is my 4th edit..Last one.. I'm publishing regardless......
Have a good weekend, and stay safe!!

Ta Jen. But 3 more edits later, and all that I've managed to change is the big bit of space at the bottom.........plurgh on my ignorance....

Anchell said...

Good luck Clover!

Make sure you are in "compose" mode, NOT "edit html" mode. Then, you should just be able to hit enter twice to get a new paragraph... If yours doesn't have a choice, just go to "Settings" and press yes for the "show compose mode for all of your blogs" section.... good luck! :)
