Thoughts of a middle aged man…..25 May 2013

Can I start tonight by welcoming my new readers and saying thank you to all my readers. This started out as a bit of fun when I was unemployed, something to take my mind off things. I have now been writing for well over a year and I am very humbled that so many are interested in what I have to say. Some days I find it difficult to write anything at all and some days it just flows. I hope you continue to follow me, and please if there is anything at all you would like to hear my opinion on just ask.

Brian and I have been out most of the day, we had a lunch to attend at his boss’s house in Iron Bank, a lovely setting just a bit outside of Crafers in the Adelaide Hills. It was a pleasant enough afternoon, there was a lot of shop talk which became a bit much, and I was designated driver. What a surprise! ūüôā

We were asked to take some pre-lunch nibbles so I made a sun-dried tomato dip, and made up a savoury platter of stuffed bell peppers, stuffed olives, bocconcini and dolmades. Lunch was a tagine of Lemon Chicken followed by apple and rhubarb crumble.

We got home about 7.00pm and I settled down to watch the football, Essendon versus Richmond. Somewhere along the line I nodded off but woke up to see Richmond lose, and the good news of the day, Port Power lost again, sorry Haidee, and on your birthday to. The Adelaide Crows play North Melbourne tomorrow and as humble pie is not a taste I have acquired I hope the Crows win.

Tomorrow is a stay at home day, washing, ironing and house work, and the Crows tomorrow afternoon. Goodnight and thank you for reading.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..23 March 2013

We have just arrived home after dinner with new friends Danielle and Scott, Danielle works with Brian and Scott is her husband. An extremely pleasant evening, a lovely meal at Lickerish on Semaphore Road, lots of laughs, a great night out. We have already made plans for the next time.

Before dinner Brian and I went down to the beachfront to watch the Queen Mary 2 leave from Outer Harbor, what a magnificent ship, although it did not look as big as it seemed on television. One thing I did notice was that there did not seem to be enough lifeboats for all on board, not my problem, I am safe and dry, cruising is not my thing.

This afternoon Brian and I popped into an open inspection a bit further down the Esplanade from our home, a¬†beautiful 7 bedroom, 4 bathroom home for a cool $1.8 million. Brian’s dream home, a pool in the back, loads of storage, an all round magnificent home.¬†Dream on Dear.

Last night was not exactly the dream start to the AFL season that the Adelaide Crows wanted, shake the cobwebs off guys and come out fighting in a couple of weeks. Still they were not annihilated, it really only blew out in the last few minutes, just took the metal off the pedal in the last quarter guys, onwards and upwards.

That’s it for tonight. Goodnight and thank you for reading.
