Green fingers

Some days are just too funny.   Yesterday was pretty sad for one reason, but also delightfully, embarrassingly, funny.   Around 2 am son arrived home with about 15 orphaned tomato plants, all about 2 1/2 feet high – the car was a sea of leafy greens waving around his head. There were capsicum and […]

Lighting the house up…without emptying your pockets.

Wow! I’m so over the electricity bills. And yet we don’t have the money to move over entirely to solar panels. We’re in an area where the temperatures are high and dry in summer – mid to occasional high 30’s and dry as. In winter, though…..-10C is normal, with occasional -14C. Whilst solar companies sweep […]

What competing does for me?

I rather like to know that I’m up to standard at whatever I’m doing. I like to know that everyone is not kilometres ahead of me. Other than that, I’m just not a competitive person. I find competing with others all the time annoying. Depressing even. If I win hands down, then ok, I’m good […]

I’m just bluddy over everything.  It’s all too hard.  It’s all too expensive.  It’s all too far away.  It’s all […]

Poultry Electric Netting…

I have a special breed of Houdini Chooks. Who knew? After some of them being in cages all their lives, they now think they have a right to the entire farm…including the inside of the kelpies mouth.   Hugely expensive electric netting purchased and picked up for speed.   I say speed with tongue in […]

Society? What is society anyway!

Firstly, I need to apologise for my absence recently.   Been a bit frazzled.  Lots of change.  Lots of coping.  Lots of…oh well, not lots of money. Nothing unusual there.  But I got tired.  Too tired to have a chat.  Far too tired to find the humour in the hardship.   Today is not about […]

Spider Bombs and Septic Tank Day…My Life

Yes, it’s true My Life is Awesome. Mainly because the septic tank is not playing up…yet.  So I’ve time to put the activator in the tank and let the good bugs do their thang.   The council wants to bring in compulsory pump outs for rural properties on a regular basis.  If people use activators […]
