Normal viewing has resumed….

Well kind of.
After my sick days and having to resort to tea drinking – much to the delight of one of my readers – I can happily say that I am fine and back to my caffeine-induced madness. Actually, I already was mad, caffeine just makes me better at it.

Life still goes on, there is cleaning and cooking, driving the kids around – when they stop driving me round (the bend), making, creating, being arty with a camera, laughing, crying, scream and shout (ing). After all, a daily dose of being told off is good for soul building. Ok, I’m just kidding about that bit. The kids aren’t that bad.

Aside from that, nothing. Zip, nada, nil. Empty head (say it, go on, I’ve heard it all before).
I do have a little project though for when it gets a sunnier. When it’s not raining. Ha, like thats going to happen, it’s winter here.

I hope this finds you all – tea and coffee drinkers alike – well, healthy and happy. If not, then I send virtual hugs your way, and a big smile with a corny joke or two.

When I saw this I thought of the Foo Fighters song ‘long road to ruin’ for some reason which has nothing at all to do with this post or the picture,

Ten Days on the Island

As promised here is the link to this amazing week of arts and theatre, wine, music and much more. While I am open minded – anyone been to/heard of MONA? – and like things a little different, most of these art installations are just too “arty” and un-interpretable for me.
Check out the website and decide for yourself.

Have a great day 🙂

Graffiti & Skate Park fun

As is the way at this time of year, there are lots of get togethers for Christmas and end of year celebrations. Monday was one of those nights. Mr 13’s Air League had a small bbq at a skate park in Hobart. A place I remember fondly (for the eye candy of course, I was not a sk8er girl) from my mid teenage years. Not much has changed except for the calibre of the graffiti. There are tags and then there is real graffiti art. Some of the artists here are really good. Some of my photos are not so much. A person who knows how to use their camera could probably are some doozies, but not me.
The kids bought their scooters, a skate board and a pair of roller blades and had fun, even when the big boys arrived. They were all quite well behaved, big and little boys.

This is what I needed the other day about over thinking the process… Perfectly written 🙂 (pun intended)
