Jeeze it’s so cold. I read someone’s blog here a little while ago…sorry I can’t now remember whose but YOU know who you are sitting with your feet in a bucket of cold water!!! when I read that I shivered so much my teeth rattled. Pleeze if you’re going to shock the populous like that issue a warning first okay LOL.
Actually I haven’t stopped shivering since I brought the towels in this morning, they had been accidentally left out over night and were frozen solid.
“I know,” I thought “I’ll zap them in the dryer,” but by the time I’d put them in they had began to melt so instead I placed them in the washer on spin and then hung them out on the clothes line again!!!
It is a dry day out but so still there may be an earthquake.
To me the earth seems to slow down, the air becomes still and silent just before an earthquake…you can feel it in the air or maybe it's just my imagination
Anyway I hate winter, I miss my UK central heating and the grass remains wet from frost and dew until it’s too dark to mow which pleases hubby but does NOT get the job done. Okay so the grass doesn’t grow much in winter but it still does and our lawn is beginning to look like it needs a good combing
Dad used to say never mow a wet lawn and I for some reason still stick to that though the reason for it eludes me. It’s probably not good for the lawn-mower is all.
I see Bollywood came to NZ to make a movie, good for them.
One of my clients has been moved into a home now so she can receive 24 hour care being too fragile to live alone. I’m sorry to lose 5 hours work/pay but I hope she will will be happy even if she all she wants is not to wake up each morning.
It's so sad but I hope I never get to feel like that, it must be awful and her so devout too.
Why is it jewellery is so expensive to repair. The number of times I’ve had to repair a pair of favourite earrings I could have replaced them three times over now I have a bracelet which needs to go in and pearls which need rethreading I’m dreading the quote for repair.
Yesterday I put on some bacon bones to cook up for Brian (he loves them) lol they were so salty they were almost inedible, remind me to soak the next batch before cooking.
And talking of bacon, why do kiwis prefer it smoked! When we first came back here to live from the UK and asked for the unsmoked bacon we were used to butchers looked at us like we were from Mars.
You just can’t get it readily and probably for this reason kiwis don’t generally know there is any other type of bacon than smoked.
Just once I’d like to be able to buy unsmoked or “fresh” bacon for no other reason than I can and don’t get me started on gammon!!! Oh alright then…just kidding
