When Teens go to school…..

Well, last week school started here again in NSW.   High school had years 7 and 11 starting on wednesday – so they could settle in without the Riff Raff.   My daughter is Riff Raff this year as she is in Year 10.   She had 2 days at school, and I was away […]

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 […]

How expensive are teenagers?

Wondering if this is a little rant about buying clothing for teenagers who like to wear brand name clothes?   Or maybe a larger rant about teenagers who like to use too many expensive electronic devices – smart phones?  iphones?  ipads? i-anything else?   Perhaps a tired whinge about how teenagers seem to open the […]

It’s Official – I have a Half Smart Phone!

Yay!  Thanks to a Techie Relative (another one not Techie 1 & 2,)  I have something that I can do that slidey finger thing with.   Well, that sounds a bit rude, but you know, it doesn’t have buttons it has a touch screen.   And, and, and.   I don’t actually know what it […]
