Driveway lights, ladies groups and speeches

The dogs have been inside  on their new beds for most of this week. The door remains open with the insect netting in place but they can move out and in as they wish. Last night  we were able to get out and take them for a walk.  My son was here so he took […]

The Big Wet.

I said recently that South Australia has developed as a metro-centric State and this has just been proved, yet again. The Magistrate Court and the District Court in the north (here) are to be closed down and all cases will now be heard in Adelaide. This means that witnesses, lawbreakers, police and, if it’s a […]

Ladies groups and dog walks :o)

It’s good to be back home again. Adelaide was just fraught with problems, and not just driving ones either. Governments aren’t the only organisations that are metro centric, it’s just the whole South Australian culture and the way South Australia has developed as a one city state with everything being concentrated in that one area.

Winter Coats and Morning Tea

House phones and Teddy Bears

It’s been an interesting few days  without the house phone. The calls were supposed to be transferred to my mobile (cell) but I only got some and I know that I did miss several – a couple that I shouldn’t have missed. Oh well  things happen.  Anyway, the landline was repaired today so we’re back […]
