Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas with family and friends. And a fabuloue New Year. While we’re enjoying ourselves, I hope we will take a moment to think of those who aren’t as fortunate as we are. Perhaps give a donation, even a small one, to charity to brighten the lives of these people. Every little bit adds up.

Bad manners!

I guess this could have an alternative title of “Widowhood – Part 2”.

I want to apologise for my bad manners in not replying to the comments and faves which people have made on my work in the last 6 weeks or so.

I had my second cataract surgery in early November and, unlike the first one back in early September, this one hasn’t worked nearly as well. I’m regretting having it done. I’m unable to read at all and even though I’ve gone and bought prescription reading glasses, it’s still difficult for me to read. Many pictures are still somewhat blurry! (My typing is still as crappy as it has been for ages now, too.)

The specialist tells me that the actual surgery has healed well but it looks as though this eye is going to take some time to …

Widowhood - Part 1

(Subititle: Pride and Learning!)

It might pay to make yourself a coffee or a drink before you settle in to read — I tend to write long things!

As each day/week goes by, I discovrer that there are now lots of things I’m going to have to do myself, things which, ordinarily, Len would have done. I have a lot to learn as I’m not only non-mechanically minded, I’m a mechanical (and technological) jinx – if it’s mechanical, chances are it either won’t work for me or I’ll “break” it!

Okaaaay, such is life. Let’s get on with it.

One of the light globes in the family room lights was blown, and I loathed the light the globes threw out – it was more yellow than the old incandescent globes. Only problem is, I’m such a ru…

R.I.P.

i’ll be gone for a while as my husband, Len, died this evening.

He passed away at about 2015, Melbourne time. He was 58.

R.I.P., Len, so very many people will miss you.

Oh man, what a day!

Today has been one of the most amazing days I’ve had on Redbubble for a long time.

I woke up this morning to find that two images had been featured:

End of the day – a photo I took of my husband the other day after he’d come home covered in fine soot from a very dirty job; and

Snowsprite – Cymbidium Orchid hybrid – Orton Effect – an image which has been up for so long, I’d half forgotten about it.

I was pretty chuffed about both these features – I’m very pleased with the one of my husband and the other one, well, as i said, it’s been up for so long, I’d almost forgotten.

As I’ve been absent since 6th March, I decided it was time to go through my now messy gallery and see which images had how many views. And this is…

Too cute!

If you like kittens and would love a laugh at their antics, this is the cutest one around. No. 16, The Orange Menace is the one I watched!
