Grumpy Bum.

G'Day,
I just read a couple of my bookmarked blog friends entries. It cheered me up as I am grumpy this afternoon with my Mum, who lives with us, chucking a tantrum. You see I went to the shop without her. Naughty inconsiderate me! I got up at 5.30 this morning to start work at 6.30 then came home at 3.00. I didn't feel like haggling around the shop with her for 45 minutes so I snuck off by myself to get some chicken to cook for tea. Bad move! She chucked one.! I must have been gone for a full 10 minutes and when I got back she was trying to leave on her electric scooter. Then she reckoned that it didn't have enough power to take her to the shop which is rubbish as she hasn't used it since I recharged it 2 days ago. I took her to the shop. For the sake of my sanity I waited in the car for the next 20 minutes while she did her thing. She came back and to prove to me that I am wrong and she is always right she bought me another bottle of fabric softener that I told her I did not need. We now have 2 of them. She has obsessions with certain products. Her favorites being biscuits, cuppa soups and soap, which she can't resist buying every time she walks through the shop door. Who knows what her diet would be if she wasn't here with me. She wants to go back to my sister's place at Grafton when she can't get her own way with us. I need a new life. Ahhhhh!!!!!.
O.K. enough whinging!
I had my picture and a little story about my pots in the "Wagga Leader" newspaper last week. Michael was proud because he took the picture. It was for the opening of my turn at the monthly exhibition in the Potter's club.
Today, indeed for the last few days, it has been very cold here. It was so frosty this morning when I left for work, the grass was crunchy and everything was white. The wood fire had gone out when I got out of bed and I was naughty and used some mineral turps to light it, it worked anyway. The last lot of wood we got doesn't burn as easily as it should, maybe it isn't well seasoned.
We must be over the half way mark for winter because my chookies are giving us an egg or two just about every day now again, which means the days must be getting a bit longer. It is time to condition my soil in preparation for spring. I have some composted horse manure and some dolomite and gypsum to spread across the beds. I will action that next week. Our expensive time with vehicles hasn't ended yet. We got the registration papers for the caravan late this week. Yet another bill. I hope it passes rego checks without needing any repairs.
I inquired about getting another water tank a few days ago. It was an 8000 litre plastic tank which cost $1800. There is a govt funded rebate scheme going until 2009 with cash back, depending on the tank size and how you use it. I want to put it down the western side of my house and connect it to the toilet. I am increasingly water conscious, we need to use more of the water that would otherwise run down the drain when it rains. Hopefully it will eventually save money too and pay for itself over time.
On Thursday morning Pete and I took the ford to the garage to get the registration check done and took Rufus our pup with us so we could walk home , he enjoys a walk. When we left the garage we saw a puppy out on the road and it came running over to meet us. It was a chocolate Labrador puppy about 8 weeks old. It followed us so I picked her up and took her home with us to look after as she was too little and too good a puppy (they cost $6oo to $800 here) to leave on the road to get run over. She was so gorgeous and won all of our hearts. We checked with the local council for her micro chip to find her owner. They had recently moved here and had only had the puppy for 3 days and both worked out of town. We returned her but haven't heard anything back, not even a thank you. It was funny though, I carried her most of the way home and she snuggled into my neck and I kept thinking, "If the owner comes along now they will think I am stealing her or something". She was so beautiful, I hope they look after her the way she deserves.
That's all, it is time to cook tea.
Bye love Linda.

Morning,
Thanks for your comments. It's always nice to know I am not the only one to obsess over decisions. I am far from professional in my photographic talents but a good easy-to-use camera helps. My Mom lives next door and has some developing memory problems so I have an idea what you are going thru. And cars are always needing something. Keeping you in my prayers. Love, Martha
