Having Trouble

Why is it when you want to do something quick there are hurdles in the way....I guess that is life,

It has taken me awhile to get to this stage of adding anything at all to my blog but here I am finally.
So much has happened over the last year and a lot of it is and should be left in the past. I'm finally retired..yippee... a bit sad about leaving all of the kids behind but this is another stage in our lives now.

Hot Hot Day

Well today is a very hot one and especially for October, nice to be shut inside away from the heat outside. What on earth will our summer be like? I hate the heat.

Selling Fabric

While I have been off work I decided I would sell off some, well actually a lot of my fabric. Never in this life time am I going to use all of what I have so I have sold heaps and have a lot more to sell. I'm sure though that it multiplies as I still have an awful lot to go. It has been easy selling it, thought I would hold on to more but it has helped the bank account.

Re: Still Here

I'm still here just not blogging at all but I know some dear friends have been checking and knowing how absent I am. Thank you Wendy and Liz emails coming your way very soon.
Life is always a trial in so many ways and just when you think you are getting on top of things you fall to the bottom again.
The purpose of that I am not too sure but you must continue to get back up again no matter how many times you get toppled over.
There are some not so nice people in the world and they should not be allowed to make you feel so alone and worthless... building up the self esteem is something to work on.

Lots And Lots Happening

There has been a lot of things happening since my last bit of blogging, far too much to go into detail but life sure does dish you some curve balls at times. Just when you think life is going well and you trust people everything is turned upside down and all trust goes out the window never to return.
Time to re-think your life and not trust those that you had faith in... time may be to run away to China or some other place and make life for everyone better..
Why is it that life is like that.. just look at the caption of the lady sewing and how content she is..what is contentment though?

Exciting times..yay

Halloween Night

I think I'm supposed to say Happy Halloween but not sure I'm a real believer in this. All of the kids seem to have fun which I have witnessed tonight at work, all walking or running around like they are the walking dead. I did notice today at the $2 dollar shop though that they were doing a roaring business selling all their cheap imported items.. I saw a very cute ghost today though.. a two year old ghost by the name of Jett and a witch trying to make her outfit fit.. namely Caprice.. it is all fun though i have to admit

Last cuddles

Shaun and Karina have been minding the cats Yoshi and Soda.
They took a bit of settling in which meant some night time wandering.
Lack of sleep was not a good thing so off to the cattery they went so Shaun and Karina could get some decent sleep

Time To Post

Still here and not back at work yet. Have a little bit more time off...yay but difficult when you are limited in what you do.
Most of my days have been what i call pottering around the house doing this and that.
Getting my sewing room in some order is taking longer than i thought.
I have so much "stuff " so it's time to declutter and clear it all. Who needs so much " stuff"?
Most of us don"t and just gather as the years go by.

Time Flies

Where does time go to? Here one day and gone again before you realise it. I'm just wondering do the days get shorter as you get older or is it just that it takes longer to do things? Ideas please.
At the moment i think i have lost a lot of my passion and have no idea where it has gone to. i would love to find it again and hope it's not gone missing all together.
It's a real struggle especially with work which i have always loved my profession but now after all these years i am questioning myself. May be tomorrow will be a turn around and all will be rosey again.
