Someone sent me the email, letting us all know that Tweety is now 60 years old!
Do you know, I feel just the way he looks!
I just can't seem to prod myself into life. I had a wonderful suprise phone call from BFJ, (who is Best Friend J). She lives in Auckland, & she was testdriving her new phone.
It was so lovely to have a nice long talk with her. They get such great deals on phone calls there... much better than we get.
This time last year, I was in New Zealand, & I got to spend the day of her birthday with her, & her lovely granddaughters. I also got to see both of her children, & it is amazing to see them now, adults, just as my children are. It brought back memories of when they were small, & BFJ & I were both pregnant with our 2 youngest.
Her son was born first, and for some reason we had been convinced we were having opposite sex children, & it proved to be true. I was so thrilled when my daughter was born, & she is now BFJ number 2!
I have had really good intentions on the sewing front, I even got as far as selecting fabrics for a new quilt top. It all awaits the cutting. I had a very sore back all day yesterday, with painkillers doing little to relieve the pain.
This morning passed with a certain scouring around of the kitchen... we no longer have children... where do those piggy black fingerprints come from?? The sticky edge on the pantry door? The spilt something, on the floor?
Of course it is not Gom! It must be the dogs.
I dreamt last night that Leo came in with a mouse, so I took it off him, & he promptly came in with another! We have seen no evidence of any mice, so I don't know where that dream came from. I wish it meant we were about to have great windfalls of good fortune! haha.
Speaking of which, it seems I have won some millions of American Dollars which have been deposited in a Bank in England. The "FBI" contacted me, via email, to let me know of this great good fortune, & all I have to do, is forward 250 pounds sterling to the Bank in England, to allow transfer of my monies to be paid here to me.
Apparently, it is surprising how many people fall for this type of scam, & one man had to be rescued from capture in Sth Africa, where he had gone to try to retrieve his money. The crooks kidnapped him, & held him to ransom, for even more money! I think the Australian Govt had to step in, to get him released.
I also had a very attractive off of making huge amounts of money-"just sitting in your chair!" I have no idea what that would have been, but I was assured I would not have to spend a cent, & the homebase for that little scam in somewhere in Hong Kong.
As I noted, a lot of these scammers seem to have very bad grammar, & little errors in their phrasing are also a dead giveaway. Apparently they are becoming more skilled though, & as Lee once pointed out, it is relatively easy to learn a lot about people if they use the internet, or have blogs or join Facebook.
While thinking of Facebook I must be getting rather old. I dont really 'get' it, & can't be bothered sharing intimate details with people I neighther know nor care about. I have joined to see family news, & enjoy seeing & reading family, & some friends. On the whole, I could live without it, though.
We seem to have had a somewhat wet April. Usually our Autumn is lovely but this year has seen a very mixed bag of weather come our way. I find myself yearning for comfort foods, & good old casseroles even though it is not yet winter.
The lack of energy is a worry though, & the lack of direction. Now that I need to be the driver, I find I feel less & less like driving. It is a pity we dont know some idle young man, who would love to drive us about... in the manner to which I would love to become accustomed!
Reelin in the Years. Nostalgia! Look at those clothes!
