Mother's Day in the "beautiful country"

...thats another term the Aussies use for their homeland.

Sadly, it's a very soggy one and sadly I have to say it's just as horribly commercialised here, as it is back home.

I had coffee the other day at my regular and most favourite haunt, Tuccibrowns. (this place deserves a little blog entry all of its own). I was chatting to a lady who said, I don't want anything, I just want my kids to be able to sit around the table with me for at least 30 minutes without getting up to attend to a constant flow of messages from all manner of social media.

She has a point, sign of the times. I suppose that includes blogs!

The T-J's are staying home today.

Hubster is buried in paperwork.

Radders is doing the second thing he loves most in the world.

Me? I am making stew, ironing and doing battle with sand covered wooden floors. That's what you get when you live near the beach!

Domesticity feels good, just hanging out doing our own thing but very much within each others company.

The very things that have evaded us for a long time now.

We are making our home, we have bought rugs and a 5ft tall mirror that still looks small on the mantel piece. It's a work in progress.

Blessings to all the yummy mummy's the world over.

Are you having a lovely weekend?

Fancy a coffee with me at Tuccibrowns? Let me know.



    Just imagine...

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Qantas one year ago,
    you would have $49.00 today!

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG one year ago,
    you would have $33.00 today.

    If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers one year ago,
    you would have $0.00 today.

    But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all
    the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for recycling refund,
    you would have received $214.00.

    Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily & recycle.

    A recent study found that the average Aussie walks about 900 miles a
    year. Another study found that Aussies drink, on average, 22 gallons of
    alcohol a year. That means that, on average, Aussies get about 41 miles
    to the gallon!

    Makes you damned proud to be an Aussie!

    1. Fabulous Cyn, thanks for sharing, gave the Hubster a good chuckle too! xxx

  2. Sounds like a fab way to spend a Sunday cuz hubster looks rather buried in that paperwork as u say. Radders is looking relaxed to. But the best think it that u are all together on a Sunday x x
