Thankful Thursday



Here's some of the things I am thankful for this week:
  • cool weather - it's been wonderful and I have even needed to rug up a little. Not bad for Summer!
  • school has gone back. Not that it makes much difference to my boys because they have finished high school but they are going to TAFE this year. Good on them both for wanting to do further study! 
  • plumbers! I know this will sound strange but I am grateful for getting a brand new toilet. We had a new one fitted on Tuesday because our old one was leaking *yuck*
  • my loving husband who has been putting up with me stressing out over the silliest of things

What are you thankful for this week?

When A Woman Looks In The Mirror


I snagged this from a Facebook friend 


When a woman Looks in the mirror this is what she sees…  
Age 4: She looks at herself and sees a Queen  
Age 8: She looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Elsa from frozen.  
Age 16: She looks at herself and sees herself as Cinderella/Elsa/Cheerleader or if she is PMS’ing: sees Pimples/Fat/UGLY (“Mom there is no way I can go to school looking like this!”)  
Age 20: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly” – but decides she’s going anyway.  
Age 30: She looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly” – but decides she doesn't have time to fix it, she’s going anyway.  
Age 40: Looks at herself and sees “too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly” – but says, “At least I’m clean” and goes anyway.  
Age 50: She looks at herself and sees “I am” and goes wherever she wants to go.  
Age 60: Looks at herself and reminds herself of all the people who can’t even see themselves in the mirror anymore. Goes out and conquers the world.  
Age 70: Looks at herself and; sees wisdom, laughter and ability, goes out and enjoys life.  
Age 80: Doesn't bother to look. Just puts on a purple hat and goes out to have fun with the world.  
Maybe we should all grab that purple hat a little earlier! The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she wears her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen within her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole. But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!

I think I might just go out and buy myself a purple hat now. Why wait ☺

Australia Day 2015



It's Australia Day

I don't really have anything planned for today. 
Other than maybe having vegemite on toast for brekky and lamb chops for tea ☺☺ 
Maybe a relaxing day in front of the TV watching some Aussie actors and crocheting might be the order of the day.

Perhaps even reading a book from my favourite Aussie author, Kate Forsyth.
Here's a list of 10 great Australian authors, just in case you want to check some out. My fave isn't on this particular list though.

We were discussing going to a BBQ with some of Mark's amateur radio club friends. Although I'm not 100% sure on that one. It has been ages since we had a barbie though so it might be nice.

Have a great day!!
