....popping in and opening this new porch... Mikie - You were dealing with so much with Tweety also acting up...I think taking her away was the best thing to do. She got her chances and now it's upto her little feline self what happens. If only that cat hating lady would up and leave. My doggies are also peeing inside but that's because it's rainy outside and also because I close the doors for security reasons.. Luckily it's in open areas ..so easier to spot and mop but what an added headache. I hope you enjoy the concerts. Starlight - that's scary about the imbalance and dropping off in mid sentence. I only heard of Lyme disease after coming here. I remember my MIL getting dizzy when walking...she went to a chiropractor, I realise that's who it was now to get massage..years back, 23 yrs back maybe..she recovered from that completely Granni - nice to hear about all your doings..outings et al. I watched a choir on Britains Got Talent..so beautiful..uplifting... Julie - do Take care of yourself and make sure you're kids do too...sure is a stressful time. The pumpkin vines are cut when they're tender and fried with onion, potatoes, garlic, etc to make curry. I think they would be an acquired taste tho..kinda tastes like green leafy veggies. I'm pretty sure they contain a lot of iron. I was looking for some misplaced things and found some. Just that I found one of a pair of party shoes, stuffed into a suitcase among clothes hahahahaha...the other was in my cupboard where I kept both. Just what am I dealing with here. The opposite of helpful elves? My son was staying to look after the house, while I went shopping and texted his friend he couldn't come over immediately, he typed 'my mum has gone to get groceries' and the autocorrect typed 'my mum has gone to gaol.'.imagine if he hadn't caught the mistake. Autocorrect is autoheadache. We felled our bougainvillea...it was more than I could handle...very beautiful but it was swamping the whole house so it looked like a house was growing out of a bougainvillea. The help hv plenty of wood now, should another cooking gas crisis arise. I hv plenty of those now..no more shortage.
