Things I’m not thinking about December 30, 2012

Last year I did a post of my resolutions for 2012. I don’t think I’ll do that this year. Things seem different. This time last year I was about to start a beautiful month of holidays including 10 days in Tasmania which were wonderful. This year I’m going back to work on Wednesday. Last year […]

Sorry Russell Crowe…..

I took myself to the movies this morning to see Les Miserables. I am always a bit concerned about going to see films of which I have heard good reviews. Inevitably, I am disappointed. Perhaps my standards are too high? Whatever. This post isn’t about me. It’s about Russell Crowe. First though let’s talk about […]

no sewing Saturday December 29, 2012

This morning saw me spending an extraordinary amount of money on new underwear. It was time and thank goodness for Boxing Day Sales. Then a coffee stop and a Spotlight stop where I bought some patchwork material and a length of dark green material that I will do something with. And then…..Ta DAAAA…the highlight of […]

"Do I hear happiness?" December 28, 2012

It’s day 4 of the #blog12daysxmas challenge and so far I am keeping up. Until I go back to work next Wednesday I fear these posts might become a little repetitive. Yesterday I sewed and sewed and sewed and came up with this: No your eyes do not deceive you. That is indeed a skirt […]

My brain…she is tired December 26, 2012

I had every good intention to do work from today onwards. I have an ethics application to put together, a research project to start properly, some QA manual to keep writing and other delightful things. I had even made a bargain with myself that I would have “holidays” up until Boxing Day and then after […]

tablecloth material

Well I didn’t exactly have the Boxing Day Blues but I wasn’t up to much today. I did manage to get to Spotlight first thing and pick up some specials in the fabric department. It was really hot though and their aircon hadn’t really kicked in so I was feeling a little seedy by the […]

so that was Christmas December 25, 2012

Christmas is done and dusted for another year. I got lots of lovely green gifts including a complete set of bathroom towels etc, a cute green purse, a green spotty mug, some green tea and new cushions for my lounge. Non green gifts included a scratchie ( I did not win anything), pins and a […]

Christmas Countdown: the Christmas Eve version December 23, 2012

And here we are at Christmas Eve. In an effort to have a Christmas event without my grandmother, for the last few years I have my parents and sister for dinner on Christmas Eve. It’s not a big foodie event. It’s just a moment before tomorrow when we can have some family time. Soon I […]

Christmas Countdown: the nativity scene from days of yore version

Inspired by @georgianoakes twit pic of her childhood handmade nativity scene I present to you this. Behold its wonder for it is a nativity scene made some 33 years ago when I was in Year 2 at West Bundaberg State School. It has been the pride and joy of the Davis family Christmas decorations for […]
