Donni commented that there were a lots of thoughts in my last post. I think A Lot. Too much: I over think things. Here are some thoughts.......
Thought One: I bought the bar of 'shampoo', I bought the Apple Cider vinegar, I washed and then rinsed my hair, but I am not sure I'm doing it correctly. Am I supposed to rinse my hair with the cider vinegar and leave it, or am I supposed to rinse it again?? Bells?? Anyone?? I have been thrusting my head at people and asking them if I smell of vinegar. It is fraught with danger, this no proper shampoo and conditioner game, and yesterday was only Day 1!! But according to Auntie Dutch it was Belle Hair, and very shiny!
Thought Two: I thought about Linford Christie's niece who has been crowned Miss England. She said that if you want it badly enough, and work hard, you can do and be anything you want. This is patently Not True. It is a lie perpetuated by the Fortunate Favoured Few. There is absolutely no way, no matter how hard I try, that I could dance with the Bolshoi Ballet, pilot the space shuttle or win the next Olympic Marathon. I am all for being positive and encouraging, but it is better to be honest and truthful. Too many dashed hopes otherwise.
Thought Three: Every Friday at about 6-50pm I have a good cry. It's when Can We Help? screens and they are always finding long lost friends or reuniting families(long before the commercial stations but after SBS) No matter how hard I try, I feel the tears welling up and then off I go. A good cry can be very therapeutic.
Thought Four: If the Hydro decides to charge families at financial risk using PAYG double the going rate at peak time for their power, and then doubles their charity donations to about $250,000, surely they would be better off lowering the rates they charge???
Thought Five: After watching it three or four times, how am I still so enthralled with Babylon 5? The three episodes MrsDrWho and I watched last night were just terrific. I was on the edge of my seat, even though I knew how it would end. I was meant to make Kiss biscuits, and I made the dough, but then I had a little Gorgette Heyer decline. Instead we had French patisserie delights for dessert.
I made the requested giant Kiss Biscuits today, they are more of what you would call Glasgow Kisses!!
Thought Six: It is amazing that I love Lorelai Gilmore so much. Your heart really does expand to encompass someone new. It is also amazing that I hardly ever call Peri Naughty Peri Naughty any more. She is demonstrably no longer the naughtiest person in the house!! It is very amazing that Harki is still pottering along happily, three months after she shouldn't be. And she is still happy too.
Lorelai Gilmore is wicked. Here she is with Peri in the backyard. She runs down to say hello to me and then she looks around and sees Peri coming down the steps. "Watch what I do now', she says and then she runs across ready to bite her ears and jump all over her!!!
Here is Gilly asleep with Harki, I expect there was snoring.
When I came home last night, Harki and Peri were waiting for me on their blanket outside the back door. Their fur was icy cold when they came to the gate to meet me. They are good and faithful girls. I patted all the cold away.
Thought Seven: It was so cold last night that there was a perfect disk of ice on top of the Rain Gauge, yet in The Forbidden Zone the Spring bulbs are blooming. I am quite pleased with the photo, it seems to focus well on the flower. I found a setting in my camera, I have no extra skill all of a sudden!!
Thought Eight, and Eight is Enough: I am thinking about all the excitement that will ensue when I buy my new oven!!! Today the nice accountant lady filled in my Tax return for me, and Lo!! there will be enough money to pay bills, and you know you are a sad but responsible grown up when paying bills is a highlight, and to buy a new oven and hotplates!! MrsDrWho was googling and reading things ovenish out to me while we were on the phone!!! Tomorrow we are meeting for Brunch to check out our favourite cafe that has been assimilated, and then we might look at some ovens!! Be still my beating heart!!
So the corned beef is simmering away in the slow cooker with onions, cloves, vinegar and brown sugar. The goulash I made for tea is ready to be containered up and refrigerated and it is time for bed. Knitting?? Knitting??? Well, there have been a few rows but there must be some mechanical bicycle failure at the moment!!!
