Thoughts of a middle aged man…..9 December 2013

What a busy day we had yesterday, up early to make a potato salad as we were having our Xmas break-up at my bosses place. Oysters, prawns, lamb, turkey roll, and salad, very nice. Unfortunately we had to leave before dessert came out, baked cheesecake and Pavlova, but let’s face it, neither of us really needed it. Anyway my boss sent home a serving of each for us today which was lovely of her.

From there we had to go to our six-year-old granddaughter Jade’s birthday party. All the grandchildren had a ball on the bouncy castle, not to mention the wet balloon fights. I also got to catch up with my former sister-in-law and her granddaughter which was nice. My niece and her children were also there, I don’t get to see her often either thanks to my dysfunctional family.

Things are definitely winding down at the office, a very quite day, too many more of these and I will be scratching for something to do during these last couple of weeks before our Xmas shutdown.

I hear that 53 world leaders are descending on South Africa for the memorial service for Nelson Mandela, and justifiably so. I am pleased that Tony Abbott will be representing Australia, but what I do not understand is why Bill Shorten is attending, he is not a world leader, he is in opposition. Just who is footing the bill for that one?

What an absolute load of rubbish on television tonight, you can tell the ratings season is over. Roll on 2014.

Thoughts of a middle aged man…..26 October 2013

It’s almost time to wake Brian up from his afternoon siesta as we have to go out shortly. I thought he was upstairs on the Internet whilst I was making salad and doing some washing but the lazy git went to bed instead.

Thanks to a recipe from good friend Jo I have made one damn fine potato salad to take to the bbq tonight. I did embellish it just a tad, sorry I should say I enhanced it, I can’t resist playing with recipes, nothing outstanding just some black pepper and some parsley.

This morning we looked after Cody and Calais as Melissa and Ryan had to empty her late father’s unit. Miss Calais was in a particularly precocious mood this morning, a bit of a sooky lala, but I did what I have always done, I ignored her and when that didn’t work the thought of going to her room soon snapped her out of it. I am a hard old bugger. 🙂

Cody was glad to see us, he told me a couple of times that he loved me. He is such a wonderful little boy, rarely any trouble and always very helpful, he loves to help people. Big brother Bailey went with his parents to help with the move so missed out on Macca’s for lunch.

I got to see a different side of Melissa today as I decided I would help her out by folding the washing which happened to include her undies, you can know too much about your daughter-in-law. 🙂

Time to wake the other half up. Have a good Saturday night.
