Cheap Trip To Perth…. And more!

Leaving late this evening for Perth……  Am eating a lot today…….. Yeh!  OK….. I’m saving money…….. No crap and expensive food on plane…… No extra money for a blanket, head phones or small!!!! video machine, that even with my glasses on, tight to head, I can’t really keep abreast of, let alone see!

BUT….. So prepared…… Have my films, my music, my books…….. Satiated with food 😏 ….. So, all I need is water……………… And……… A toilet……

Wish me luck 😉  Hopefully won’t explode with having such a full stomach…….. Will compare notes with K….. My daughter….. When we eventually meet x

A Smelly Tale!

Over the past  few days …… There has been a bad smell in the apartment!  Searched upstairs and down….. Depending on wind direction…… No luck😠

Today, finally narrowed it down to kitchen and laundry area….. Gony and I, sniffed, nose to floor, walls, just about everywhere!

Then started the clean up…… Under fridge, dishwasher, store cupboards, cleaned inside of all…..

No luck ;(  I began poking the ceiling accesses …….. About to get the ladder to go up and look for the dead ‘something’ ……  Very unfortunately, last night watched a scary movie about poisonous spiders….. Didn’t help my resolve!

Just then….. Hurrah! Gony found a pack of what had once been frozen prawns on top of the fridge/freezer ……. Luckily no maggots!  Pretty disgusting, why didn’t  our frequent visitors (the monkeys) take them away…. They take everything else 😉  They have better taste hehe!

Staggered Birthday Celebrations!!

Over the weekend ‘Special K’ my youngest daughter celebrated a birthday in Sydney (Uni student)….. She was a little upset as she only got one birthday card from her extensively spread family!

I explained that everyone had sent a card, or in some cases a gift!  I immediately sent texts to close family…… Did you remember birthday? All were adament that they had.  In the meantime; am blessing  text messages, they sent heartfelt wishes…….!

Today I was talking to my daughter and the great thing she said was….. “Well, my birthday is over, I had so much to do on Saturday…. But it’s over!  Now, I can really enjoy every card or gift that arrives.”   How wonderful is that…. OK, I did direct the conversation, but she so agreed.   So rather than being disappointed, she is excited…… which brings me to my point!!!

Most women don’t get flowers very often…. But on my birthday I sometimes receive 3 bouquets.  I love each and every flower, but don’t truly appreciate them!  I would LOVE to have  a staggered delivery….. THEN, every flower would mean so much more?

In the meantime I hope cards will arrive every day for ‘Special K’  and give her joy!

Advice!

Strangest of times when you need advice!  You might look to your partner, your sister, your friends….. bottom line is….. Most wonderfully, sometimes you get it from your child…… Thank you “Special K”!   You really kept me focused, You gave me a lift……

PPS….

PS…. Special K!

I wrote more, but somehow wasn’t printed!  K is taking her final year at Uni in Sydney…. Artistic, makes me smile! I want her to be true to herself and, when she looks in the mirror…. see a special and worthy person, beautiful, in and out! xxx

My Daughters……

…… God, I am so frustrated today on two counts!

“Special K’  and ‘Galactic’ …….  You might have gathered, my daughters….. G is working in Austria, finished Uni in England, Bi-lingual, totally, German and English…… Working in hotel business, like her Austrian dad, born in Penang, Malaysia….. She is talented, self deprecating….. carries her heart on her sleeve!   Cries at every sad …. and happy film, like me! But, unlike me, doesn’t have the confidence she so deserves to realise that she deserves, to look in the mirror and see a wonderful woman….. A woman, today, needs to know… she is special….. ready for the new hiccups ahead in a new position at work! Go for it and hold your head up so high! xx

K….. Acts so tough, my youngest daughter!  Tough exterior, very bright, of course Bi-lingual… She can stay days in her room (don’t ask me what she does)?  But when she comes out and speaks to me, my heart sings….. I love the times…. so few, when she tells me she loves me!

Inside she is a marshmallow……
