The Computer NerdMy name is John and I live in Whyalla, a small city of 21,000 people in the north of South Australia. I am semi-retired and live with my wife and my dog.  My wife, is  partially disabled and is unable to do a lot of the work around the house, so I help out as much as I can, apart from which, I like cooking. I am in the process of rebuilding the garden, front and back. The Shade-house I have completed and have started to put plants in there. The washing line I have done away with and bought a drier for her. We have two children,  both boys and both are Engineers ( A Chemical Engineer and a Systems Engineer) and my  dog is called Benji and he is a Staffy Cross  ( and a woose)  We are currently fostering a Chihuahua.

  1. Hi John, thanks for dropping by and commeting. Being disabled is a pain, I have slowly been getting worse over the years and no I have told I have a blockage in my brain and spinal cord stopping the signals getting to my legs now and then, its also started in my hands, life is cruel to some. If you have a look at http://www.rainbow-photography.net thats my other blog and you will find Sealed Knot and Dunnottar castle where I worked as a guide until recently. Nice to meet you regards to your wife.

  2. Hi John! Thank you from me as well for dropping by my blog and adding your humorous take on one of my posts. 😀 I’ve enjoyed meeting you and look forward to reading more of your posts. Happy rebuilding and cooking! 😀


  3. Hi, thanks for visiting The Glasgow Gallivanter and the chats we had there. I hadn’t realised you were now in Australia though I got that you were no longer in Scotland. Regards also to your wife from one An(n)abel(l) to another! I don’t meet too many.


  4. Hi Edgar,
    Thanks for visiting my blog and commenting. As you know, I live with disability and chronic health issues and my husband is my carer. Three months ago, I got NDIS and that’s improved things a lot for me. I am getting a lot more help at home, buut am also doing a lot more myself and so the house is making good progress. Being a carer has it’s own ups and downs, which may bear no relation to what’s going on your your partner either. Fortunately, it’s rare that my husband and I both hit a downer at the same time.
    I have strong family connections to South Australia. My grandfather’s family were on the first boatloads of Germans. Our family settled in Hahndorf and my great granfather was born and lived in Haebich’s cottage, which used to be sign posted on the main street of Hahndorf.
    xx Rowena
