hello, i haven't posted for ages i'm afraid.  i've been having a bit of trouble with google and my account.  i haven't been able to comment on anyone's post either which is annoying, so please forgive me for my lack of presence lately.  not a lot has happened really, things are much the same.  i am rather excited as tomorrow Maz is coming over and she's giving me her old coffee machine.  it's a really good one and i'm a little bit in awe of it as i've watched youtube for instructions and it's quite complex.  it grinds the beans.  amazing.  i hope it goes well.  i bought some coffee beans in anticipation.  as you know, i just love my coffee.  my son and dil recently bought a machine and when i go over my son makes me a very nice cappuccino.  my dil who is a tea drinker has been having at least two coffees a day.  :)  they go to the market and get special blends.  the last one was vanilla which was delish.  i didn't think it would be but i enjoyed it.    i went to another ukulele workshop again and can now play two new chords and three and a half songs.  happy birthday, twinkle twinkle and half of you are my sunshine.  i can also play the first two lines of hallelujah.  my son on the other is brilliant with it.  he and his friend on the banjo did a version of scarborough fair which was really good.  i wish i could embed it for you to hear.  it's freezing here.  really, really cold.  i'm looking forward to spring.  :)


  1. Great to have you blogging again!
    The ukulele is very very cool.
    The piano accordion is so uncool that it makes me want to learn how to play it and just walk down the street ROCKING out!
    but that is just me....

  2. Love going to the market in the city to get things like coffee and veggies.

    Good luck with the coffee machine. I am saving for a new one myself

  3. Good to see a post from you. I sometimes have problems posting comments on blogs when using my iPad, other time all is ok.

  4. I've missed you and I'm glad to hear everything is okay. Congratulations on your growing expertise with the ukulele.

  5. Tim has a coffee machine it is a pod type, and my brother recently bought himself a pod type and so did my parents. Dave (brother) had one like in the photo but hated it said it was to much work and much prefers the pod type he now has. Good to see that you have managed to comment on at least my blog if now one
