What's going on ?
What's happening at my place?
1. Disaster averted !
I have been unable to get into my blogs!
Yes blogs, I have four on the go:
Budget Baby Boomers' Travel Tips - abandoned but left sitting there
and Awesome Activities at Moggill - a CWA blog
Recently I have been unable to get into any of them.
When I signed in and clicked on Design to enter them I was faced with a blank page.
Nothing, just a white page with nothing on it!!
I tried my usual solution - rebooting the computer - no different.
I tried using another browser - no different.
I went away and came back the next day. Same thing.
I asked Tony . No progress.
Finally, in desperation I asked two blogging buddies for help, the first step on going from blog to blog and putting the same comment on all of your blogs asking for help from any tech savvy bloggers out there.
Both of them set to work to find a solution for me and while Carol ( in Cairns ) was at work Sandy ( Tea Cup Lane ) found the solution for me !
Tony cleared my Cache and History and boom I'm back in business !
That's what I love about the world of Blogging.
When you have a problem your pals are always there to help you through.
Heartfelt thanks Sandy and Carol
Recently there has not been much good stuff happening in my kitchen.
Tony and I have been dieting !!
Trying to get some weight off before our trip.
We both need it.
I need it more !
So we've been eating salads - easy enough in this weather - and not much else!
Needless to say Tony has lost twice as much as me !!!
I've been seeing people making bread out there in the blogging world.
Artisan, no-knead bread
and I just had to have a go.
WOW ! Just look at this !!!
Yes, it is as easy as they say !
and when you slice it ......
Lovely holey, bread with a chewy crust.
I'll be making it again !
3. A Visitor
Yes, Scout has come to stay for a month while Sally is on holidays.
She ( Sally ) is spending two weeks in New York and 2 weeks in Whistler skiing.
Scout 's making herself at home.
Too much at home sometimes!
Not allowed on the new chairs Scout !!
Scout's habit of early rising is taking its toll on Tony.
4. Another disaster !
Sally's bathroom renovation has been a disaster.
Incredibly poor workmanship and $9000 down the drain so Dad and cousin Ben to the rescue.
They are jackhammering it all up while she is on holiday and organising and supervising the repair.
5. Exercise !!!
In an effort to help with the weight loss drama I am now swimming 1000metres - 20 lengths -one kilometre - twice a week at the local pool.
As the pool will be closing in three weeks time for the Winter this will not continue but then it might be cool enough to do a little walking in the evenings with Scout.
Suffice to say exercise and I are not friends !!!
and now finally the most exciting of all
6. An Engagement !
These two special people
my handsome son Brett ( do you think he looks a bit like Bear Grills ???) and his lovely girlfriend and partner for about 6 years, Sarah
have finally decided to get married later in the year.
We are so happy for them and delighted to have Sarah an official member of the family.
So that's what been happening here !
