If you could build a house anywhere, where would it be?
Just one??? Oooh, that's too hard... Um, gosh, I dunno, Maybe one of those luxury apartments on Glenelg beach? That way I'd have mum and s-dad nearby, which would be great for all of us. I'd be near the beach, be near the city... And I really like Adelaide. It would be hard to be away fom my friends though... I don't know really, is there such a thing as a perfect place for me?

What’s your favorite article of clothing?
Um, now usually I'd say my red velvet long coat - it's a true replica of a 1920s design, and gorgeous, but unfortunately it's now on the big side on me and not so flattering anymore... I have a new black dragon tshirt I really like though...

Favorite physical feature of the opposite sex?
Yeah, I'm an eys person... But for me, it's not physical really, it's the mind, always the mind... He could be perty perty, but if he didn't have a quick mind, I'd be totally put off...

What’s the last CD that you bought?
The Best of Savage Garden (and yes, that was this year, hahaha)...


Where’s your favorite place to be?
The beach on a sunny, but not stinking hot, day...

Where’s your least favorite place to be?
Lots of people are saying the dentist, which would be true for me too, except that I NEVER go... I'd have to say, the pathologist...

What’s your favorite place to be massaged?
Back/shoulders!

Strong in mind or strong in body?
Yeah, um, hmmmm, strong in mind (some days, some days I think I'm losing my mind), getting stronger in body...

What time do you wake up in the morning?
Between 6.30-7am, but I don't get up them (that's when B wakes)... I just kind of ignore B until I hear Dave talking to the boys (usually around 7-7.30am), then I call out to him and he take's B until about 7.50am on the days he works, or 9-ish on the other days...

What is your favorite kitchen appliance?
Oh, that would be a toss up between the kettle, the toaster and jaffle maker (thanks Jayne, we're ever greatful for that jaffle maker!)...

What makes you really angry?
Being lied to!!!

If you could play any instrument, what would it be?
Piano - or any kind of keyboard really - second to that, the drums - I'm basically a percussion person, LOL!!!

Favorite color?
Any colour 'cept brown!

Which do you prefer…sports car or SUV?
SUV, but with three rows of seats, so I can fit everything, including another driver and HER kids, hahahaha (seeing as I don't drive)...

Do you believe in an afterlife?
Yes, but not in the "you die and live on as spirit/you die and reincarnate as the same soul in a different body" - it's complicated, more like string theory afterlife ;)...

Favorite children’s book?
Where is the green sheep! That or Slinky Malinky!

What is your favorite season?
Autumn, long warm days, cool nights...

What is your least favorite household chore?
The dishes. Am very good at NEVER having to do them...

If you could have one super power, what would it be?
Premonition - oh wait, I have that... Um, I'd like to be able to see well enough to drive...

If you have a tattoo, what is it?
No tattoo. I want two, the only thing holding me back is deciding what I want them to look like...

Can you juggle?
Two balls but not three - does that count?


The one person from your past that you wish you could go back and talk to?
Yes, my last ex... I'd tell him to come out of the closet, and I'd apologise for not being together enough myself to realise that we had a co-dependant relationship that was no good for either of us...

What’s your favorite day?
Any day Dave is home to help with the kids...

What’s in the boot of your car?
A winning ticket to the next superlotto and a positive home pregnancy test (well, while I'm imagining a car, I may as well imagine some other stuff I'd just LOVE to have)...

Which do you prefer, sushi or hamburger?
Sushi! But it has to be REALLY fresh and COLD and TUNA and/or SALMON...

I'm pulling a Sif and tagging whomever hasn't been tagged yet, YOU'RE IT!

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
