Me chasing HER! She was snatched it from my grasp as I walked in.... I managed to tear it from her death grip in a rolling fight on my bed whilst she was struggling to untangle herself from the doona (doova? quilt thingie) and I ran back up the hallway in triumph! YES! It wasn't an easy fight.... she's strong for her age. :lol:

They shall not be slipper socks because (according to Hayden) you cant see the pretty butterflies (the things that make you grip the floor) if you wear them the right way up. :lol: :lol:

Morgan and Truly have assured me they will be the warmest people EVER when they go camping... (WHY WHY do people go camping in winter here?.... oh yeah... because you wake up at 5am basting in your tent in summer... that and the fact that the snakes arent so active in winter)

And I shall sit huddled on the sofa allllllllll aaaaaaaloooone under my blankie with warm feet while everyone else is out.... doing STUFF! :D

Your postie must wonder about the strange things that turn up from the UK!
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

At one time, you couldn't go to the pub (any pub) without there being at least 1 Aussie barman!

Actually drove to work today so got stuck in the nastiness that is rush hour here and had the radio on.

DJ:......and we have a WINNER! Third person to ring in has won the "Indulgence Pack" we had up for grabs and its YOU "Ida" from Shailer Park! Congratulations.

Ida starts to speak and it is very obvious that Ida is a quite elderly lady from her voice.... and I am thinking "Awwww. Nice!" and the conversation goes something like this.

DJ: Ida! You lucky lady you... now I am going to tell you whats in the pack so here's what you have to do.. ready?
Ida: Yes. I'm listening.
DJ: First you pour a huge dollop of bubble bath in the bath and foam up all those bubbles in nice warm water.
Ida: Oh that sounds nice. I'll have to make LOTS of bubbles to cover up all my bits wont I....
DJ: ...... ah ... yes! Lots of bubbles! But it gets better Ida...
Ida: Oh yes....
DJ: Now I have a lovely box of chocolates for you to enjoy while you are in your bubble bath...
Ida: Oh thats nice. Yum! I like a bit of chocolate. I better not drop them in the bath! hehehe...
DJ: .. no don't drop your chocolate Ida! But leave some room for my specialty selection of nuts!
Ida: ... I'll have a little nibble of chocolate and then a little nibble on your nuts.
DJ: ............................er.............. and to wash it down your can enjoy a lovely glass of Lindemans Sauvignon Blanc!
Ida: Oh thats nice isnt it? I might get a bit tipsy. hehehehe.....
DJ: So Ida. Congratulations and what a lovely start to your weekend! Do you have any special plans for the weekend by the way?
Ida: Oh yes. I might pour a nice hot bath and INDULGE myself for a while.... hehehehe.
DJ: ............................................... and next up..... er... the traffic report......

:laughing-rolling: :laughing-rolling:

I suspect Ida was having a bit of fun with the young DJ :lol: :lol:

This made me smile today and yesterday:

I went to the clinic once again yesterday morning and they checked my jaw over, made the last adjustments and declared it to be in the perfect position :mrgreen: I can stop turning the screws! :dance:

The pain's already much better. Next tuesday I'll go for another checkup and if my jaw is still in the same position, I won't have to go to the surgery for three months. :D

It's finally over. For the moment. 8-)

Nice! Btw just got round to watching the 31 days after vid, perfectly clear and easy to understand, if I didn't know wouldn't even detect any impediment, which is saying something as due to teaching English, tend to pick up on any pronunciation/enunciation/stress issues in speech!
