a small accident

my dear friends a & s went to cairns recently and brought me back a lovely present.  it's a grain of rice with my name on it encased in a cylinder and threaded onto a leather cord.  it is a different and an unusual gift.  i love it.  but ...  i was sitting down this morning to have my nice quiet cup of coffee before the kids and my cousin come for a visit and i picked up the wii controller on the coffee table and with it came my lovely necklace which dropped with quite a loud plop into my freshly made hot cup of coffee.  i had a glass of water on the table so quickly fished it out and put it in that and took it into the kitchen where it is draining.  i hope there will be no damage.  i hope it's waterproof.  it's similar to this.

i bet the frozen broccoli  i bought yesterday from aldi would have been very tasty if i'd brought it in from the car.  i found it in the boot this afternoon.  it was a really hot day today.  yuk

it's been a while hasn't it?

it's been ages since i posted something.  nothing too exciting has happened to post about i suppose.  i am suffering from hay fever which i don't usually get.  i used to when my vincent was alive.  i didn't realise that i was allergic to cats (and lots of other things) until he passed.  i gradually got over the hayfever like symptoms and didn't realise it until my friend Lan and my son were suffering and i was not.  well, this year the symptoms are back with a vengeance.  i even went to the doctor thinking i had 'flu.  nope, just hayfever.  i bought a nose spray the other day on the suggestion of my friend and it has improved a little bit.

his big bed

Caiden, aged 3, went into his big bed today.  he's so proud of it and we are getting him a bed rail tomorrow just to keep him safe.  i've been busy in the garden today and got a fair bit done.  i haven't seen the baby lizard the last few days which is unusual as it's been beautiful spring weather lately.

he'd love this
