mornings, coffee and snow white

i've always been an early riser, well, since my husband passed at least.  before that i slept like a log and i liked to sleep in.  these days, as you know, i'm almost retired so i don't have much to do in the mornings.  nowhere to go, no-one to see.  :)  not every morning of course, but most.  i'm really starting to enjoy these slow mornings.  i don't have a coffee straight away and just wait until i feel like one.  i don't eat until i feel like it.  great stuff. graham came over yesterday and we mucked around on the computers swapping movies and ebooks.  he really likes his ebooks.  we booked our next trip to bali because jetstar had the most amazing prices/specials going.  it's the cheapest i've ever seem them.  i got return flights with fees and luggage far cheaper than i've paid for one way tickets in the past.  to say we were chuffed would be an understatment.  well done us. 
i weighed myself the other day and was pleasantly surprised that i've only gained a very small amount since i've been so slack with my fasting etc.  i must try harder.
my daughter may call in this arvo, i hope so at least.  she's got a hospital appointment for cookie this arvo at the heart clinic and is taking bubs as well.  i hope she will be able to call in on her way home.  i suppose it depends on the baby and if he is happy to be out and about or needs to get home for feeding etc.  i haven't seen him for nearly two weeks i think.  i will go up there if they can't call in as i miss him.  cookie needs a snow white costume for her performing group.  they are going away to a camp on the weekend and i may pick the girls up (cookie and her friend) to bring them home.  it's about a two hour trip but that's ok.  i will go to the library later on and i also have to buy milk.  the needy coffee machine  goes through copious amounts of milk.
there was a coffee festival on the weekend for the fringe that i managed to miss.  this is a pic of the coffee kombi.  i would have liked to see that


  1. It's good to be able to do what you want to do when you want to do it, but then on the other hand, I expect life can be rather lonely at times.
    My goodness, that is wonderful to get your flight cheaper than before as air fares can be expensive at times.

  2. That was the best thing when I first retired was to be able to spend time sitting at the breakfast table reading the paper and doing crosswords and getting up when I felt like it.

  3. Life does slow down when you reach a certain age. I hope you get to see the baby soon.


thanks for visiting. :)
