.................not the pile of library books I quickly grabbed just before the library closed for christmas or the local free rag with its first christmas baby pics and who did what on christmas day. But blogs. I'm off blog tripping again. I've gone to the first blog on my dashboard, then gone to the first blog on her blog list, then the second blog on their blog list and the third and so it will go on. This way I get to read blogs that I wouldn't normally go to.
Yesterday I mooched around, I slept away half the day, read for a bit, did 30 sudoku puzzles, had a sandwich, slept some more, had another sandwich and then went to bed. I was so out of sorts it was not a nice feeling. I think because this year has been such a rushed affair, always having something to do, somewhere to be that this period of inactivity is killing me, I can't sit quietly and just do nothing (well, maybe for one day I can just about manage it). I am so restless, I couldn't settle to do anything (or want to) .
I've decided that I am going to paint the kitchen cupboards an off white, leaving the tops polished wood (Beautiful Queensland Maple). That will be summers project.
I'm dangerous when I am bored.
I suppose I'd better fess up about my christmas present from the boys. Not exactly pretty,
but very functional, white goes with everything. Okay, so it wasn't what I imagined I would be getting, I suppose I'll have to buy myself the gorgeous ceramic shabby chic measuring cups and spoons I'd been hinting about for weeks. It looked promising as they gve it to me, big and nicely wrapped.......okay, I'm getting to it. A TOILET CISTERN, yes you heard right. My loo has been playing up for a while, I have to fill the cistern with water from a bucket, water spurts everywhere from a faulty valve which they were told couldn't be replaced, the whole cistern would have to be new. So they bought me a new water saving cistern - 6 litres for a full flush and 3 for a wee. Now all I need is a nice man to fit it for me.
Oh yes, and we got a cyclone for christmas day. Only a little one, lots of wind and rain but not much damage. Plenty of flooding around, all the roads to down south cut off which means road transport can't get up north. Shelves pretty bare in the shops, not that I want to venture out. I did go over to my eldests for our festive bacon butty barbi, it looked like the river had gone over at one stage, judging by the amount of debris on the road. The river was running thick and brown just under the bridge so I didn't hang around too long at my sons.
Better go get dressed and try and get something done today.
