Wacky week


It has been a wacky week..i have been awol from the computer and only flitting in and out..the weekend festivities with finishing the girls KDS and Dinnermintz with the snake and blah blah..so I have been walking around hunched over and really dragging my feet..cars back and forth to be serviced and I started a course in Photography…about time.. and what are the chances my teacher is the cousin of a friend who was a chef and owner of our fave restaurant in the town we used to live in..3 hours away.. the red moon had us sitting out in the driveway and not five minutes after we both said ‘I hope a tree doesn’t fall on us ” we heard a massive crack and crash and a tree fell into the neighbours dam.. which instantly stopped all the little frogs croaking.. Cleo is not happy about being restricted to the whole inside of the house and the catio..so we have a bit of a battle.. but it’s getting there.. for some reason Doc has been unsettled at night so we have an eye on him..my sons have their 27th birthday today and so we will be seeing one tomorrow and the other on Saturday.. our daughter is in Japan and until I know exactly where I worry with the typhoon coming..so tomorrow night we have two of the kids up for the night…then Saturday we head into the burbs for an award night for Fozziedads uncle..one of our boys and his girlfriend is staying here to kitty/puppy sit.. but because Cleo is being a pill I want to drive back home Saturday night..so most likely we will be back here about 2am..i had to go clothes shopping for this event (which I hate) which has had me stressed as I really am not a shopper.. all this and so much still to get done..urghhh..
But today I got the bargain of a lifetime.. not for me for the girls…beach chairs..$5 each…so into the KDS they went.. and so.. i am here but not here…I am trying to catch up with peeps and doing a poor job..i wonder if maybe I have what it takes to be a blogger sometimes…

Meawhile here is a hijinx picture from the KDS today…I know what Pickles was thinking …do you ?

  1. Happy Birthday to your boys! I think you are the twin of my mom as I read about the bargain…. it was nothing for you but something for the kids, lol. Pickles looks a little like one of the gremlins with her ears (like one of the GOOD gremlins, of course lol)

  2. What an incredibly hectic time Bev! Sounds an awful lot of fun though. Interested to hear you’re taking a photographic course – think you take great shots (Dinnermintz in the post alone proves that) but I guess with all that wonderful wildlife, it’s good to learn the tricks of the trade as they can be very hard to capture. Hope the boys have a fabby birthday πŸ˜€

  5. Good grief! You need to come up for air! I don’t see how you do it Bev…honestly….just reading that blog makes me need oxygen (hahaha). With a busy family and all that you are doing now with a photography class (which you could be teaching by the way since you’re so good), and keeping up with the kids and furry kids, building rooms/gardens/fences…..no wonder you’re exhausted. You really do need to give yourself some time off……………your blog buddies will be here ALWAYS……but you DO need a break!

  6. Cwap!! You are way too busy Fozziemum. Calm down and relax. Take a lesson from your kitties and mellow out. The tree falling was funny to listen to but not so funny when you were watching it. How is Dinnermintz? Sounds like she is ok. Did she get bitten by the snake? Pickles looks like she is looking around for some food tome…a wee snack before jumping on the tail in front of her.

    When Mingflower was alive I found this amazing boarding cattery not too far from Hamilton where we lived. Mingflower (who disliked children & everything) LOVED going there! She had her own Condo apartment & did not see the other cats. She adored the man & he could pick her up & cuddle her? She loved to play toys with his 3 children….in fact when I would come back from vacation she did not want to go home!!!! That is a sign of a good place, lol…
    I hear you a week early is like a month for us so you have to get things sorted.
