Day and Night…

Night and day, you are the one
Only you beneath the moon and under the sun
Whether near to me or far
It’s no matter darling where you are
I think of you
Night and day

Night and Day ~ Words & Music by Cole Porter (1891 – 1964)

I know there are many staterooms with their own balconies but really and truly the only place to experience the benefit of being close to the ocean is on the promenade deck of one of my favourite cruise ships

Some time or another when we feel it is safe to do so we will return

I am really missing my Vitamin Sea 😊

Little changes….

Just like their Gt Grandma, Little B and Little M enjoy time at the beach

Little M, our Christmas babe from 2020 is now one year old and walking – Little B, no longer little, recently turned 5 and started ’big school’ a few weeks ago.

Little B will soon be turned into a young boy when his mumma gathers up the courage to have his long curls cut. I wonder if she will cry, just like his Gt Grandad The Golfer’s mumma did when she had his curls cut and turned him into a (younger) little boy.

The Golfer aged 2yrs


No watching the waves this week for those two little tykes up above – they live in Brisbane and have been watching water of a different kind.
In case you weren’t aware there’s been a huge weather event up there this week with many towns and areas along the eastern coast of Qld and NSW being flooded

S’now secret…..

You must have heard me mention that warm weather is my friend
I don’t do Winter

When the weather cools down I want to run away and hibernate

So this is my preferred way to pass the time

At the beach doing nothing 😊

Hook Island Qld

For a few years when I was a very little girl we lived on the south coast of England and almost daily visited the stony pebble beach at Southsea
Mum said I loved it, never wanted to leave and would be a handful on the way home 

Seemingly I knew what I liked even at that age lol

With the winter Olympics finishing up soon
I think its a good time to reveal something to you

There was one week in early February 1961 – (I know -thats a very long time ago)

When I had the time of my life and even enjoyed the cold weather

Doing what you say

Skiing – says I 

– yes – 

Snow Skiing ⛷⛷

Dad was serving with the RAF in Cyprus at the time – so as a family we were living in the beautiful island in the Mediterranean.

The youth club went to the Troodos Mountains for a few days

And here for your amusement is Catherine practising for the down hill event 

Bet you never thought you’d see me frolicing in that cold white stuff lol

Right turn surprise….

Sometimes good things happen when you get in a muddle at the exit from an unfamiliar supermarket car park and end up in the ’wrong’ street.
What a nice surprise this was – on the side wall of the Mount Evelyn bakery

Painted in a sepia look reminiscent of days gone by, the bakers horse and cart is making its way along the bushland track to make deliveries at various properties

The only thing I’ve been able to find is it is the work of a local artist – David Monks

First week of the month – first week of the school year – what I’d thought was going to be a fairly quiet start to the year proper turned out to be busy busy busy with something planned for most days.
Actually I should have remembered that after the long covid related ’enforced break’ it was the week Probus and Book Club were able to meet again, and being the first week of the school term choir rehearsals could also begin again. Then add into that an appointment with the optometrist plus time at the pool and yes, it was busy busy busy!

Some early morning fine tuning is going to have to happen though because after a long layoff when ’my things had been on hold’ I’d forgotten the ’thrill’ of chivvying The Golfer along so I could get my fair share of the bathroom and leave the house on time 😊

It was worth it though to see familiar faces and enjoy company I’d missed for a while

Couch potato me watched lots of summer sport…..now it’s time for the winter type with Snowboarding Slopestyle plus Freestyle Mogul being this week’s attraction. All these athletes are at the top of their game and I feel for them if they take a tumble

So how did you spend last week – did you get any surprises?

Linking to Life this week – to Monday Murals – also Whatsover is lovely
