That Adam...

I l-o-v-e Adam Sandler. I love his movies, his messages, his beautiful humble smile...

I could go on. And on

I just finished watching Blended with the gorgeous Drew Barrymore.

Ahhhh. It had me laughing, and crying...

I'm sitting here alone. The boys are out riding their bikes and Miss is on a date

Just the dog and I

Life has returned pretty much to normal here. The Silver Fox is back and has just bought his first pair of reading glasses. Awwww.

Miss T had another lot of surgery on that knee injured in a soccer slide tackle back in April. The surgeon says she has the arthritic knee of an 80 year old. Great. She is only 16! She needs to work on her quads so once she has recovered is it swimming and bike riding for her.

I like this time to myself. The washing is done and because I take about 4 laundry baskets out to the line, it is all sorted and folded. Is there a fine line between being organized and OCD?

So, best have a glass of wine and wait for the tribe to get home.

ciao for now

I seem to have a bit of an issue about white shoes. Maybe it was that Nicole Kidman movie when she killed a woman for wearing white shoes after a certain date. Or maybe it was that white pair of Lipstick stilettos I wore in the 80's.

Still not sure why. I don't notice them on others but just never buy them for me

Except now I have. Sort of. From Country Road

Not shoes I suppose. Sandals


You know what this means?

(Sigh), now I need a dress

Well, the Silver Fox is away again. Down south this time. By himself. I can hear his voice is flat. My heart is heavy. It literally feels heavy when he is not around.

My car needed a new clutch and when we got it back the speedo worked but not the odometer or trip meter. Trying to book it in between 8 and 5 has been a nightmare so the Silver a Fox gave it the 'Fonzie Touch' and it works! Yay. Nothing like 'when in doubt, give it a clout' I say.

Anyhow, life goes on and everyone is healthy. I am boss for the next few months, am training a new person and will be moving office any tick of the clock. It is keeping me busy but I also like to be super organized so am trawling my way through paperwork and systems to get stuff sorted. I like being organized so am quite loving the challenge.

I find myself talking to myself. ALOT! I hope this is okay. I think it is me just getting my mind organized. Hopefully.

Oh, I treated myself to a half price deal and had a Keratin treatment in my hair. Guaranteed anti-frizz for 4 months with no blow drying, straightening irons or anything. Just wash and leave. OMGoodness! My hair is amazing! Soft, silky, fluid and oh so easy! And so long! Wow! I have been wearing it out now for a week with no hairy and in sight. Can't believe it can be so easy.

I'm in love!

So take care, stay well and chat later

I went to a funeral today. Probably the first funeral that wasn't for an old person - a Granny or Great Aunty.

It was for someone my age. Someone who had a heart attack and died quickly.

It was sad

A beautiful wife, a 20 year old daughter and an 18 year old son are left behind to continue on.

The daughter wore white. She was beautiful. She wore white because it would be the only chance her father would see her in her wedding dress

See? Sad

Makes you think doesn't it? About life. About the journey. About living the everyday the best you can.

Life is too short don't you think?

Do You Know Your Worth?

I'm sad

Robin Williams has died and he has been around since I was in primary school

I wonder if he is in heaven right now looking down and all the fuss and saying to himself
"Really?, people miss me?"
"I didn't know people thought that much of me"
" I wish I had known"

Maybe he would have reconsidered his decision, his despair

Maybe he wouldn't have been so very low that he couldn't come up for breath that once last time

People don't always know their worth do they?

We can change that. Not for Robin but for those around us

Let people know how much they mean to you
Smile at strangers
Have a kind word to say
Compliment people
Make small talk and engage people
Do something kind for someone
Pay it forward

Rest in peace Robin Williams. You have given me some wonderful child and adult memories. I will miss your happy face, your smile and your talent.

ciao for now
