Here's wishing you all a blessed and happy start to the New Year.
I am hoping that 2007 will be a good one for me and my family and also for you and yours.
May our alliances continue to grow.
May our friendships continue to give us joy.
May everyone be strong and healthy.

Tonight is a wierd night - there are parties on either side of our house.I can already hear the laughter and noise.
We will be having a quiet one.

And tomorrow I can sleep in.....yay!!!!!
I just hope no idiot starts mowing thier lawn at 7 o'clock in the morning - there is always one bright spark in the neighbourhood, isn't there!
See you in 2007...

23 days to go - but who's counting!!!!

Yep - it's sale time and as all Mary's would tell you, it's bloody busy!!!
All calendars are now 50% off and all the morons comming in to buy them are 50% more stupid than before.
Oh - I know - I shouldn't say that about my beloved customers....
but it's true.
Now the one good thing about all of this is that I have only 23 days left and it cannot come quick enough.
I have been suffering from a feral throat and chest thing and am glad that the long hours have finally come to an end as they have really worn me out.
Back to normal working hours again...yay!!!!
Thank the Goddess for small blessings.

I think that I will have a very quiet New Year's Eve this year as the man is a bit wary about going anywhere and I am ...frankly, too tired.
Had a small idea about getting together down by the foreshore to see the 9 pm fireworks.....
How has everyone's year been and what are your New Year's resolutions????
Time to blog a list methinks???!!!

Happy Solar Invictus!'s Solar Invictus Day and I am at home, having slept to a whopping 11.30!!!!!!!
Then I woke with a caffeine withdrawal headache, as normally I would have had my third cup by now.Mersyndol to the rescue!
But, I am home..all day.
And guess what?
I am also home tomorrow.....all day.
Yay!!!The man had prepared breakfast with lots of cold meats, fresh home baked sour dough bread (that the man had baked the day before) and condiments.
Then we had some freshly baked cakes - also cooked by the man the day before.
How good is that?!!
After mass over consumption of goodies, the girls and I headed out to visit my dad ( dearly departed) at the cemetary and sprinkled angels and sparkles on his grave. While there, we decided to hunt out the oldest grave site at the cemetary and go sprinkle some angel dust there too. Here lies Robert, for over 100 years - so we blessed his soul and sprinkled his decomposing grave site with angels and stars.We figured it had been a long long time since anyone had payed him a visit.
Then we went home and I lit a candle and burnt some incence and felt so much better....there really must be pagan in me.
I then mustered the strength to also go visit my mum and take her some of the man's cakes.It must be horrible being alone at Christmas and I felt sorry for her - but I could only take half and hour of her company. I think I did well.
I am currently staring at so much chocolate on our coffee table that I figure it will take at least a week to get through it - oh how painful....not!
Other than that, we will have a friend over tonight and that will be that.
I am very happy.
It is a very special Christmas.
My darling man is well and happily sitting at his computer responding to people from all over the world who are asking him about his cancer operation and asking for advice for themselves.
My darling man is here with me and will be snuggling next to me in bed tonight and all will be well.
I am a happy girl.
Hope all is well in your household too.

God please give me strength!

It's only a few days to go till Christmas and the work hours are killing me!!!
This Thursday night is the clincher.....we work till midnight!Yippee!!!!!!
I am an old woman...please have mercy...I am getting varicous veins where I have never had them before and I have RSI in my wrist from all the eftpos transactions that I process every day!
But - such is life.
At least sales have been good and thank goodness for all of the help from the Mary's who have been my life savers this year.

The man gets his blood test results tomorrow, which will tell us just how well he really is after the operation. He has been recovering slowly.Some things have come more easily, others are progressing more slowly. All in all, he is doing remarkably well.He is a very good house husband too - doing all the dishes and cooking me dinner almost every day.HOW GOOD IS THAT!!!
There has been a suggestion made that I keep working and that he stay at home on a permanent not like that idea muchly.

Horror Movie stuff!

This morning I arrived at the Square at about 8.45 ( yes... over an hour before official opening time ) to find the Square had been taken over by zombie like aliens walking around the corridors with their empty shopping trolleys, stopping from time to time at different shop windows shouting 'Open the f**k up, it's two weeks to Christmas and I want to spend money!"
"And I want to spend it NOW!!!"
Hundreds of them, aimlessly hitting each other and bouncing off the walls with their trolleys and credit cards at the ready looking for anything they could buy.
It was like being trapped inside a horror movie.
"The Christmas of the Living Dead".
This little scenario has turned me right off Christmas.
I'm sorry.
I am now officially over it.
It has turned people crazy,silly,stupid and RUDE!
Why were these people there at that time of the morning?
Why weren't they at home having their first cup of coffee and giving their children a cuddle.
Instead, these semi humans had chosen to frighten the livin beJesus out of me!!!
I needed that. Not!

Mr.Sushine gets taken down!

Well, it did not take long for Mr.Sunshine to try again.I am glad that I filled in a complaint form about him yesterday, as today, at 8.30, he and his girlfriend came by and waited for my reaction yet again.
This time I would not let it pass - I asked him to move on and leave me alone,and when he refused I called security as he stood there in front of me,laughing hysterically like some demented mad man, while his wonderful girlfriend looked on in glee.
I told her off more than I did him, as I was disgusted by the fact that, as a woman, she was allowing him to harrass other women while she just looked on. That, in my mind, was lower than low and I told her so.
He is an idiot moron, but she is worse for standing by and allowing him to continue.

Well, security arrived and we had a number of name calling exchanges, where I was called a liar and such, but in the end they were escorted out of the Centre and straight to the police station where he was allegedly charged and will be banned from the Centre for one month.
Somehow, I do not think that it will be enough to keep him away and I really feel that I will be seeing him again soon.
But for now - the arsehole is gone! Yay!!!!!!!!!

Hey Mr.Sunshine - You're going down!!!

Well, you have heard me talk about Mr. Sunshine before.He is the wierdo who walks around the square every day stopping people and telling them to have a good day and to keep smiling.Sounds harmless eh? This guy is fully psycho!He has harrassed me for weeks with little comments and hysterical laughter every time he walks past.So today I put in an official complaint.I have bided my time trying to ingore the arsehole - he comes past at least two or three times a day, but today tipped the scales.He made one comment that was just too rude and I am not going to put up with it any longer.
Mr.Sunshine - watch out! You are going down!!!
Otherwise it was a day of weirdness! So many angry people - such bad energies.I just wanted to come home.Yuk!
Sometimes the square is one nasty son of a bitch place to be!
I miss my home. I miss my family.
I am so glad that the Mary's are helping out.

A rather large erection

Yes...I agree.It is rather a large erection and it is in my loungeroom!
No.the tree did not come from Retravision, Mary of the many Lay bys.
We got it from Grace Brothers many years ago when it was on sale because it was a demo tree on the floor. The staff dismantled it and put it in a cardboard box from a fridge for the man to take home.
It takes us a few nights to put up as we only do a bit at a time, but it has now become a yearly tradition - even though I was fairly close to getting rid of it this year ( I was booed down by the rest of the clan).
When all the lights are can almost have a seizure! But it's worth it.
You must come by and have a Capt. Cook!
The man is doing well - he is actually doing some short walks and is sleeping a little better.
I am contemplating pitching a tent somewhere in the carpark of the Square seeing that over the next three weeks I will just about be living there.Should be super fun...if you are comming to the Square to shop please remember to bring alcoholic beverages for Boss Mary!

The Power of Stupid

Ahh! Nothing like being trapped with millions of people at Christmas time in a very large shopping centre!

My Glass is now half empty!

I am now officially half way through the Calendar Club season.
I have ONLY 50 days to go.
The sales have turned up a notch or two with Mary of the Blessed Lay-bys having her first taste of pre Christmas madness at the Square today.Hey got worse when you left. I thought the eftpos machine was going to spontaniously combust with the amount of transactions I was processing!
Meanwhile, the man is slowly recouperating. He is restless, not being used to doing so little - and is tending to do more than he should be.
I am just bloody tired.

Another day in paradise!
