She was our 'baby,' the last of our children to be born. She has always been 'mum's girl'. She is one of my best friends.
She can be impatient with children, but has all the patience in the world for elderly people. She is gifted in her rapport with old people, & even the grouchiest respond to her over time.
Here are her two 'babies'. Her 18 year old daughter, & her 5 year old son. As you can see they adore each other. He is a lucky little boy. It is like he has 2 mothers. He is so proud of "My Sister."
Here are 2 'mates'. Leo is always up for a cuddle. SG asked me to take a photo of them together, & this was the one. Hmmm pity about the bottle growing out of SG's head!
Notes to me.
Always check the background before taking the shot!!
Always double check the time of the Party, to suit all parties.
Remind the family, 'Gravy is not a beverage!'
Remind certain family members, the Crackling is for all to share! Do not sneak it.
Wear an apron when making the gravy. Huge splotches of gravy are not a good look on any apparel.
When the dog stabs himself on the lemon tree spikes, he is likely to roar inside, & massage dirt into the sofa, trying to stop the sting.
Those beetles that live on the lemon tree, ruining it, STINK beyond belief!
Gom has little, to no sense of smell. He does not realise he reeks of the stink beetles.
Most plants need labels stating DO NOT TOUCH!! or they will be hacked & wounded.
Why do people insist on saying "alls". There is no such word. example- "Alls I want is a fair go." All I want, is to leap on their throat & rip the word out of their head.
Try to keep calm at all times. Passionate ravings, against injustices, are ok in the privacy of your own home, Meggie, but not such a good idea in public, or unknown mixed company.
A final note to me, is to get over the fact that 6.5 million dollars was given to some
fecking Museum about sodding bloody Cricket in a town called Bowral. When children continue to be murdered by family members, becauses DOCs lacks the money to provide more staff to prevent such things. In spite of the at-risk children, being flagged as being gravely at risk.
Politicians should hang their heads in shame at such things!
Bring back the Stocks.
I am too grumpy to think straight!
