Back to the grind tomorrow
My sister has arrived at mums so I can breath
Shopping is all done bar the fruit and veg, which will be ridiculously expensive on xmas eve but what else is new?
wont even mention fuel...
Had noice coffees and cheesecakes with real people last night so the world is still turning
Darlin thinks I have left him for scrabble because thats how I turn my head off
The bad thing is that now Ive had time to wind down I am feeling the fear.....cancer, my god!
Chemo, hair loss, vomiting, offices........moving!
I think I will have to move us over to Backpassage in order to be able to cope
It seems the most sensible thing to do right now
My children will not love me
Enough...Im going to scrabble before my head explodes
better than drugs yes???

I love driving at Christmas time, especially when the bus in front of you stops and leaves you stranded in the middle of a keep clear zone in peak hour
People are so kind
I flipped him the bird of course, in keeping with traditional Christmas spirit
and waited and let 30 people turn left in front of me
just to keep him in line
any hoo, I am here
I have been asleep for two hours
my feet hurt
my back aches
I need to get over it
and on with it
Thursday, December 20, 2007
He says the cancer is very treatable and that her chances are good
Surgery asap...which in public hospital speak means the next 30 days mind you
then 6 months chemo, local and intravenous to get the bits they miss
I am sorry to be short but the day has been veeerrryyyy long, and the one before, and the one before.....and many more to come I imagine
Thank you for your wishes people...please send healing to Sandra
and strength to me

My mum has a tumour 12cm x 9cm x 8cm which used to be her right ovary....it seems to be contained but for a small amount of fluid, which is good and not
No other organs seem to be afflicted at this point
Went for a CAT scan this arvo and off to docs and probably hospital tomorrow to get the fucker out....

This is the guy whom I left because he didn't mind punching me around with babies in my arms or in my belly...
This is the guy who showed my 4, 3 and 1 year old a gun and bullets telling them they had my name on them and so hasn't seen these kids for 12 years....
This is the guy I am sending my son to for Christmas
This is not about fathers who show up occasionally, I wish it was
While I don't believe he will hurt Josh, I am struggling with it all.....
But he is a big boy now and needs to know....
Tuesday, December 11, 2007
Lots going on in my life right now
Lots of shit from my past coming up for me with the arrival of my ex in my sons life
Josh is going to him for christmas and I feel like I am sending him to the monster under the bed
and it hurts that 12 years down the track this arsehole has me reeling yet again
I swore he would never hurt me again and yet here I am again
I wish he had just conveniently died sometime
life goes on
and it looks like my mother may be really quite sick
will know more by next week but the quack is concerned enough to be rushing her through tests before xmas
the daughter stealing Catholic bastards will have my daughter for xmas and I wont
whinge bitch moan x 34523
I will prevail!
on the bright side?
It will rain today
Someone will enjoy that I suppose
grrrr sob moan sigh
thats enough of this!
Friday, December 07, 2007

i am not punctuating...cant be snaggered

I got all my xmas shopping done in a day and a half
one pressie left to find and only because its for my little brother (who is 6' 2") and he is a pain because he never 'wants anything'...

It was very nice to have the money to just go and buy.....I like it a lot
better make some more now so I can buy more stuff!!
Just like that heh!
anyhoo, its done
what else I hear you ask???
Well, back passage of course....which I am now receiving renumeration for, due to selling of many houses due to excellent positive energy influx of my good self of course.....
not much renumeration but still, better than paperclips for sure
and a haircut too. I got a haircut.....
and a clean ish house, I managed one of those as well
I only have 12 things in my washing basket....a rough estimate as I refuse to count
I have not put my bush up for display yet
I am waiting to see if anyone around here notices
It is entirely possible they wont until 3 days before C day
I slept for 3 hours this arvo and will now be up all night so as to get suitably exhausted before hoing ay Hades tomorrow......

I am so unfit
but not for long......
I have new gym pants and they make me go faster
and I must eat fruit before going so I don't nearly pass out like I did this morning
whilst trying on said gym pants I couldn't help but notice that the entire thigh region of my good self is a wobbling mass of pitted cellulite
so not impressed
apparently the soup machine helps with cellulite too
I farkin well hope so
how did I let myself get so old and decrepit??
now I need some shoes that are not too big so I don't trip over my own feet whilst bouncing around on the wobble board..not that the board wobbles but I certainly do
grunt snoff sweat and faint
at least I got out of doing squats for a month due to bad back......
but only for a month
on the bright side
I did get up and go
on the dark side
today is my last smoking day

Saturday, October 27, 2007
I am buying one of these machines and will be using it to make me better, and Darlin', and anyone else who is interested ( for a small fee, one has to pay for this machine after all ).......
If I hadn't witnessed what came out of me I never would have believed it possible
and if I hadn't experienced the well being that I feel today as opposed to yesterday I never would have believed it either
I have been reading up on detox and it is fascinating...the effects of what we put into our bodies are horrifying!
~ Ion Detoxication Foot Bath ~
Detoxification for a complete re-balance of the body's bio-energy fields.
Ion detoxification foot bath helps improve your Health, Feel invigorated and rejuvenated by helping your body to re-balance its bio-energy fields and stimulate the body’s detoxification. The body's organs will naturally function better when the electro-magnetic fields are charged. The ion energy charged footbath will help you feel young again.
~ Why Have An Ion Detox Foot Bath Treatment? ~
With the increase in the number of chemicals introduced in the last fifty years, there has been a dramatic increase in incidences of auto-immune disease, allergies and common infections.There are tens of thousands of chemicals in use today and more than a forth of these are known to be toxic and nothing is known about their interactive effects. Body fat has been tested that contains residue of hundreds of chemicals. Metals, such as mercury and cadmium are everywhere and impossible to avoid. Lead can block red blood cell formation. Chemicals can act as toxins that can block receptor sites on cells, and cause changes in calcium homeostasis selectively killing cells, and alter expression of gene products. Metals and chemical toxins weaken the immune system and cause increased vulnerability to virus, bacterial fungal and parasitic infections. In an attempt to detoxify these substances, our bowels, kidneys and liver are being overloaded.
Our eliminative channels have become blocked or dysfunctional, because, in conjunction with these synthetic chemicals, and the western diet that is so acid forming and de-vitalized. To relieve the strains on the kidneys and liver it is more important than ever to maintain a detoxification regimen. The ion foot bath is designed to relieve these strains and help the body re-balance its energy fields allowing organs to function better.
Some mild symptoms of toxicity include:
Headaches, lethargy, obesity, constipation, bad breath, anxiety, poor skin,digestive disorders, forgetfulness, allergies, poor circulation, cellulite.
Some severe cases of toxicity can include:
High blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, heart problems, kidney failure, cancer.
~ How Does Ionization Work? ~
The complex energy fields of the unit permeate the water, realigning a body’s energy field. Many of the benefits of the can be attributed to the "rebalancing" of these energy lines allowing a body mass to function better. This action results in the initial purging of toxins and nucleic waste product kept and/or generated within the cells and surrounding membrane. Following the purge there is a re-correction of any abnormal deterioration within the body that has been caused by illness, injury, and viral and/or any other life experience, excluding birth defects.
The Ion detoxification device is a method for creating a bio-charge that is both safe and compatible with living matter. Water is the obvious medium used because up to 80% of the human body is water. Water is an active substance, so when water comes into contact with something, the frequency of what it contacts is integrated into its own frequency structure and thus becomes its signature. When you immerse a body mass into water, the frequency is instantly added to the water as a "memory".
The Ion Foot Bath detoxification accelerates change in the body. Aging and disease states are characterized by a diminishing anabolic capacity and an increasing catabolic capacity. Toxic buildup of cellular waste and debris is the inevitable outcome of these trends. Reversing them through whole body detoxification requires nutritional support, particularly digestive enzymes, reduction of stress hormones, trace minerals and fatty acids, which are involved in the movement and transport of raw materials in the body.
to put it another way, the largest pores in our bodies are in our feet and the process works via osmosis......so thats how it gets out!

Putrid disgusting soupy scum
Today I had an ion detox
You should have seen what came out of me!

No wonder I feel like shit
I am made of it
erk x 35528766
But you know what??
Tonight I feel 50 % better than I did this morning

This morning and lately I have felt truely very ill and worried about why
Now I know...

I can do something about it
so, this is interesting
Thu Oct 25, 2007 2:08 pm (PST)
Beyond a doubt, this is one of the most critical MAKE or BREAK times
that we have ever experienced. Absolutely everything is on the line.
From now until the end of the year, we are setting the templates for
Because of this, it's essential that we aim ourselves into our truest
direction. For if we continue to compromise ourselves by staying in
expired situations, relationships, jobs, friendships, activities,
attitudes and patterns, we will find that we are going to get very
stuck. We will miss the immense promise of the Golden Opportunities
that are on their way to us. By choosing the tired security of the
old, we will miss the brilliant chance to expand our beings to a
totally new level where we can Fulfill our Wildest Dreams.
The level that we stand on at the beginning of 2008 will determine
our future experiences for a whole new cycle. Because of this,
important decisions need to be made that will directly impact our
The Express Trains into the New are speeding along into the New and
True. Along the way, they are picking up new passengers, those who
are ready to leap aboard with their full beings. This will continue
until the end of the year. After that, the trains will speed up
immeasurably, going so fast that it will be almost impossible to jump
Surprisingly, there are those who are already on the Express Trains
who are panicking and jumping off. The fear of the Unknown has simply
become too strong. They feel that they have reached the limits of
their expansion and can stretch no further beyond their comfort
zones. They know that by riding the Express Trains they will pass the
Point of No Return and will never be able to return to their old ways
of being. This causes them to panic at the last minute and jump off
the train, frantically clutching onto the old and expired.
Whenever this happens, even if it happens to someone whom we dearly
love, we must stay on the train and continue on. There is no longer
time to get off and rescue someone; everyone must make it onto the
train on their own. If we try to get off to help someone, we will
find that the train will continue on without us.
The past week was an extremely challenging one in which many of us
were severely overstretched. Challenging situations continue this
week as well. The intensity levels are so high that many of us are
getting sick, which brings most of our activities to a complete halt.
For some, being sick gives us much needed integration time. Others
are experiencing a far-reaching purification which scours our beings
much like a wildfire scours the landscape.
Scouring is a main theme for this week. Scouring away anything which
is untrue and anything that holds us back. Glitches, obstacles,
issues of self worth and self judgement, narrow ways of seeing,
distortions, disappointments and illusions are being scoured out of
us and out of the matrix itself. Anything which keeps us from living
in the state of Right Time - Right place is being burned away. This
is perfectly mirrored in the huge wildfires that are currently
scouring the landscape of Southern California.
Fire is having a strong influence upon us. Some are experiencing
parts of their body suddenly flare up with immense heat, like
spontaneous combustion. Others are getting icy cold to hold the
balance when so much fire energy is present.
Many are feeling the irritating grating of the grain of sand within
the oyster of our beings. This makes us feel uncomfortable, impatient
or angry, even when we know that the grating grain of sand is
creating a pearl within us.
We are on the brink of immense, life changing, momentous changes. A
monolithic shift is occuring deep within the foundation of our New
This monolithic shift is creating openings into our New Lives. People
whom we hadn't heard from for a long time, are now sitting beside us
on the Express Trains. At the same time, some of those whom we were
positive would be with us to the end, have suddenly disappeared. And
new faces of kindred beings are starting to appear and fill the empty
Our Express Trains are ever speeding up, taking us right into the
Major Intersections of November. And after that, our way ahead will
be immensely clearer.
Wild times indeed, but definitely worth it!

I really don't know because I was at the arsehole of the world paying bills and making invoices and stuff for most of the day
He did get spoiled though
I went to the quacks
And my iron levels, which should be minimum of 21 are 10
so yes, that makes me tired and exhausted and stuff
and so too does the fact that I apparently have MILD emphasema, or however you spell it.
but could be worse
I was starting to think I had a dispicable disease but this I can manage
Lucky Im giving up smoking next week heh....
So, I am on an iron supplement for a month
and quitting the 's' word
and if I dont feel like a new woman by the end of a month
I go to a specialist to have more diagnostic test things and see if things degenerate
or something like that
poo bum farkety fark fark
So, I am going to join the gym with my baby girls this week too
and am being detoxified by Black Crows magick machine on Friday
and going into Shelli's school tommorrow to sort out a couple of bullies for her
grrrrr x 33397
That should keep me busy
oh, and finishing paintings due to be hung at Sunnies on the 4th of November
I think we should all have dinner or something
a sort of opening
what say you???
I am releasing the need to smoke ciggies
Monday, October 22, 2007
I feel better today
its only early though
There are 75 paintings in various stages of done-ness in the middle of my house
there is much less dirt than there was
It will be back it tells me
maryme is RUDE at scrabble and makes me laugh
it is Darlin's birthday tommorrow and he will be older than he is today
I have an appointment in the morning to find out the results of my tests at the quacks
I probably need to eat more spinach and get big muscles
well, one would hope
Today will see me have coffee with darlin and Nat
and then do whatever I please
which is nice because tommorrow I file for envelopes
2 months ago I told the universe that my mother would have 10 sales

Monday, October 15, 2007
and very tired due to playing scrabble all night
my son made me cry this morning
NOBODY makes me cry
I am playing scrabble again
and not getting off the computer for hours
and this is driving him nuts
sweet revenge is had
I am sick of having no energy and feeling 60%
going to the quacks on Friday to have a pap smear and try to find out why my period has decided to extend itself from 5 to 9 or 10 days long over the last 6 months or so
and your feelings on this are??
I am enjoying sitting on my butt whilst kicking others butts
Saturday, October 13, 2007
Friday, October 12, 2007
I will babble for a while
because you ask so nicely
I am stuffed
a big week again
hookering and painting and stuff
the girls are happy with their rooms
I am extremely pauperish now though
I took my mother out for dinner last night for her birthday
and went for coffee and banana bread ( i love typing banana, its smooth and you dont know when to stop)
Happy Birthday wiggle ho
My life seems to be made up of many many short episodes of busy all running into each other just lately, well, for quite a while now
I don't quite know how it happened and Im not quite sure I like it but it beats being bored I guess
I am wondering when I will have some me time though
Sometime in 2015 I spose
I wish you people would play your turns
I don't have much to say today
I have just had a sleep and am muzzy headed
It has been nice to not have to do anything today
even though I did have to take Kayla to Spotlight for curtains and go furniture hunting
Life is flowing along in a really fast way
I would like to get off now
Tuesday, October 09, 2007
still not bloody finished as I am actually not superwoman even tho' I do a damn good impersonation at times
working in backpassage today
plurgh x 3002
seeds come from pods dont they maryme?
Well, Toni has her painting and even likes it which is always a bonus
Next on the list is finishing poor Glorious' painting ....so slack i feel
Then my commission in between getting 2 done for Sunnies next month
and wearing my new CC shirt
and somewhere in there I must paint some drums and do some works for Art Bizarre too
Better get my red cape back out
but I can do anything you know
one day at a time
Sunday, October 07, 2007
Ive had a lovely day today
just doing things I want to
shopping for canvas and paper for commission which is going ahead, yay
and shoes for feral boy feet
and socks too
I made a cheesecake that has yet to be tested
I am finishing the trims and doors in Kayla's room and will be starting Shelli's tommorrow
Poor girls have been waiting for 6 months for this so I will get it done over these holidays because I am a cool mom who does what she says
Today I had a funny experience, well, it wasn't funny, just interesting to note
I had to go back into the art shop and tell them they hadn't charged me for something....I got onto the car and realised they had not charged me for it and for about 10 seconds I was arguing with myself in my head about wether or not to go back in because I really did not want to, but I did.....and then the same thing happened in Coles 20 minutes later.
It was only strange because it made me realise that these are things I do automatically these days when once I would have considered it a bonus and that I deserved it and it was the shop girls problem not mine...if I hadnt of just stolen it in the first place of course!
These days I make choices, every second of every day, about how I want to live and be and I know the consequences of my actions, be what they may, come back to me, in whatever form I put them out there. Every choice I make, in every moment, defines who I am, to myself, if not to another.
Those shop girls would not have known that I didnt pay, but I would have. I am the one who has to live with me and I am the one who makes the choices that dfine how I feel about that.
Even the little stuff counts.
Especially the little stuff.
Onto something else now....
Am only working at backpassage this week...that will be good
Ive got heaps of things to do around here
Darlin' has been a very good boy lately
I have been spoilt with flowers and pressies and housework being done while Im at work and other such good stuff
Now, how to get a back rub???
Got doors to paint and scrabble to play!
Thursday, October 04, 2007
then I am heading off to be a HO at Slimygreenhills
tomorrow and Saturday I am HOing at slimepit too
this is why I have not seen anyone
my life is full of strange places and stranger occupations this minute
my ankles are swollen and my hives are just loving this hot weather
I am itchy and sore and my toenails have paint of the not polish variety stuck on them
someone threw an egg at my car
the night after i finally persuaded (with threats) my lovely son to clean it for me
he found this quite hysterical
as did i but in a differing manner
after i had scrubbed off baked egg yesterday afternoon
and then re scrubbed off baked egg
i was not impressed
but it was far to hot for me to go screaming down the street
not so for the man in the motel across the street
i think the heat must have curdled his good fun button
he was most loud and feral
and saved me the bother
today I am hoping that bushfires are still burning on backpassage road so i do not have to drive there
this is selfish i know
but somebody started them and they could at least be useful!
have a good one people
Tuesday, October 02, 2007
There is a story behind my scrabbleousness
my mother was/is a mad scrabble head
and made us play
we hated it
and lost a lot
so I decided to get good
and kick her ass
and I did!
many many times
I have a scrabble board
and my kids wont play with me
and I dont make em
but YOU are a different story altogether my dears
now go play your turns
Monday, October 01, 2007

Friday, September 28, 2007
and how...if I am playing so many, can I still be waiting for people to have their turns??
Darlin thinks I have disappeared into the computer
Lucky I really like scrabble
Somethings got to make me think
CSV coming home for a flying visit tomorrow
This means I get to drive out to Kurri twice and back in a day
She's lucky I am a cool mom
I am exhausted....
have been hookering and ho-ing all week every day every hour and minute and second and stuff
vitamins and fruit tingles are not doing it for me
just means I pee fluorescently and froth at the mouth a lot
I think I will be in bed at an ungodly early hour tonight
like now seems fair to me
Monday, September 24, 2007
am Hookering at backpassage
very important inteference running whilst accountants audit things that are very important also
am worth at least an envelope this week
have just eaten many quarters of little sandwiches with stuff on
too many too many
and three packets of fruit tingles because they are yummy and i am addicted
Kristy is stressing me at scrabble...she's good and blocks everything...grrrr
maryme says she is a champ but i am flogging her breasts orf
Cyndi is lovely and just gives me triple words on plates...lovely I tell you
Life is soooo busy
time is whipping by each day
I'm sure I used to be able to fit much more into a day than I can now
anyone else noticed this??
My house is clean
Thats weird too
Back to hooking........
Friday, September 21, 2007
This is much goodest yes
Am halfway through two paintings and will certainly be finishing them sunday and monday.....
I am a scrabble champion except for one game that jen somehow managed to beat me on
My house is half clean in the visible bits due to workshop tomorrow when 5 ladies are coming to make drums with us.....
Lucky hey....now I can pay the $700 farking electricity bill and live to cook another crappy meal and have hot water and stuff
Darlin' has James Rayne blaring in the lounge room so he's in a good mood
Maryme is a toothless hag apparently.....
I have fulfilled my backpassagly duties for the week
not much else I don't think
Life is moving along
as it does
when you let it
Thursday, September 20, 2007
but there is no going back and undoing it
Sometimes we do something so shocking that others cannot pretend it wasn't
Sometimes the reason we do these things is that we need desperately to change and by doing this shocking thing we are unintentionally (or so we think at the time) creating the exact thing that will make us HAVE to look at ourselves with honesty and choose to do WHATEVER it takes to climb up from there
Sometimes we use this thing as an excuse to alienate ourselves from anything that will do us any good and we will use shame, anger, illness or whatever we can think of in our desperate scramble to cover up the reality that is ours
And the choice is all ours at that point
Sometimes we don't even see it through our self imposed deceptions
Sometimes we put ourselves at rock bottom to force us to have to climb up out of the pit and live
or stay there and die
Sometimes, if we face the fear head on and walk through it and all over it, we surprise ourselves
And the choice is still ours
And it always was

Sunday, September 16, 2007

I am quite pleased with the results of the exhibition even though I will never put myself through such stress again....hah, so she says right now
I don't know, I would like to speak more eloquently and bare my soul a bit but I just don't have the oomph to even think right now
I will get to it
I miss blogging for real
I miss me
Better go find me then....

what to say
I am so glad that William True decided to come to me on Wednesday night and have a pat and a stare into my eyes. I will miss his funny little face and his sticky out lip. Bugger and damn cars that don't see and then don't stop.....
This is one of the paintings that didn't go into the exhibition.....it is about ascension.....you will see it or not
I do believe that a lot of the 'death' that is going on now is just that some came for a reason and that reason is complete and so they go again....pre-chosen and welcome, for them.
Not that that helps those of us left behind much

I only have a minute
I am getting ready to go sit in the gallery for 6 straight hours and go mad
bugger darlin's who must tafe
bugger exhibitions that must have open doors
bugger bugger bugger
I want to sleep
and stare at walls
my stomach hurts
if you aren't doing anything today drop in and have coffee amongst the artwork with me
you know you wanna!

Well, now you know why I was shitting myself
pooping my proverbial panties....except I am too cool to wear them now apparently
What a night
I am so wilted and stuffed
I certainly wasn't expecting THAT many people
and I sold work!
and got a commission!
I am impressed!
Thank you to all Marys who came and rallied in support!
It made it so much better having friendly faces who love me to see whilst I was flying around like a demented twit saying thankyou and kissing people...(note to self: must master air kiss)
They drank all the grog!
and ate all the beautiful cheese ball and gaucamole
and didnt eat the fruit....stooopids!
I didn't get any!
I had chocolate in bed for dinner and then fell asleep and snored a lot
Next time...more cheese, less fruit
Darlin' sold another piece today...most excellent!
I feel blessed!
Lots of good feedback from people who's feedback I care about..
A handsome man with a really BIG camera and a sexy accent taking photos and looking very professional.....yes you Mr Hoe
I didnt realise I knew so many lovely special people
Did I say I was blessed??
Was it worth it???
Especially now that I will never have to do my first exhibition again!

you know what?
i am sick of this crap!
lets do something else tomorrow night huh?
lets go to the beach and sing and play drums!
lets go to someone elses opening
I was going to say something rude about Jac's opening then but have decided not to as it would not be in good taste and i am not humerous just now, only boring
but i am well hung!
ah well, we shall see if all this crap is worth it tomorrow...
and perhaps i shall never do it again
i don't even have butterflies anymore
or the energy to hit the caps button
stress is exhausting isn't it

from LAST YEAR!
apparently we would be revived if we changed our blog titles
am pondering this
what to change it to??
More Boring Drivel from the studio???
Daily and yet not??
Be Back Later???
Okay, enough of that.
Did you know that only ONE person showed for Arty FArty today??
Whats that all about??
Are you all sick of me??
Maybe a rethink on artclass is in order
I will give it a couple more weeks though.....
Anyhoo, am very busy taking photos of work and am just recharging
stupid camera for the next bit
Am getting more nervous and yet not as the day grows nearer
Normal I guess
Must go and stare at paintings some more and feel slightly sick
Am thinking of Kristy working today....

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.-- Camille, age 10-------------------------------------------------------
HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED? You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.-- Derrick, age 8--------------------------------------------------------
WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON? Both don't want any more kids.-- Lori, age 8 ----------------------------------------------------
WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE? Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. -- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. -- Martin, age 10 ----------------------------------------------------
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? When they're rich.-- Pam, age 7 The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that. - - Curt, age 7The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do. - - Howard, age 8 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.-- Anita, age 9 (bless you child ) --------------------------------------------------------
HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?-- Kelvin, age 8--------------------------------------------------------And the #1 Favorite is........
HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck. -- Ricky, age 10

I am hiding in cave only because I must to do what needs to be done....
In between caving life goes on....I haved ho-ed at backpassage and shopped and cooked and not cleaned as Diana would have seen today
Darlin' has been entertaining other women whilst I have been ho-ing
The exhibition which shall hanceforth be known as 'shit' is looming....
just over a week to go
in my hibernating cave time I have been productive and am almost ready for it
as ready as I shall ever be anyway
There is only so much one artyfarty can do in a month!
and so it is
Am feeling remarkably calm in spite of late nights due to inability to sleep.....although I would have slept last night had the alarm next door not gone off high pitchedly for hours.....
am going for healing tommorrow with someone who is she but not she....excellent
am now the proud owner of a packet of red dots that I will fully expect to be attached to paintings soon.....
and a visitors book
Wednesday, August 15, 2007
This week I have
- destroyed paintings
- not done any housework very much at all
- Taken darlin's to doctors to get excruciating hip pain sorted out
- not slept well
- had rude shocks pertaining to certain father of children suddenly reappearing out of the depths of nowhere where he should still be instead of contacting my son who has no need of his particular form of influence....grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
- will work again
- driven 65,000 miles and back again
- butterfly bandaged darlin's finger back onto his hand after he tried his best to remove it with a kiln shelf today...I swear that man is not meant to have a full exhibition worth of pots.....
- purchased a new vacuum cleaner because mine was full of clay.......and therefore not working at optimum suction levels.....
- written a media release that says nothing much at all
- did I mention not slept well?
Am going to remedy that right now......can somebody tell me when I am making smudge sticks at the cottage?
I seem to have lost my little scrap of paper that was keeping me organised......

Whats with all of you people??
Just because I have been a slackarse blogger doesn't mean you all can be too!
I would tell you about my week but its really just more of the same...
am painting madly yet not sure if I am getting anywhere...
My house is a hovel
My kids are here somewhere...
Darlin' disappeared out into the garage 4 days ago and hasn't been seen since....
I am just a wee bit sick of it all...
Oh well, not too long to go now
What do mean there is still 3 weeks??
Monday, August 06, 2007
Not very good pics....
Am a busy mary indeed
Exhausted and sick of paint
Trying not to get a cold that wants to hang around...
Maryjen is brilliant and is making us an invitation to rival anyones......
Arty farty's are wonderful as usual
Children are alive and fed and thats all folks
Darlin's are alive and thats a miracle some moments and I'm sure he will say the same of moi!
It is cold...
Did I mention exhaustion?
I dunno what else....
Friday, August 03, 2007
Have just realised I have not pisted for days
It is Friday....
Well, I am alive and kicking...
Am just in the middle of washing towels and vacuuming floors and washing floors and contemplating how long we shall live if I dont clean the toilet today and doing 5 paintings simultaneously with one hand tied behind my back and standing on my head and doing the Hokey Pokey whilst Whistling Dixie (whatever that may be)......
Ahhhhh, such a relaxing life it is....
So, what are you doing??
Tuesday, July 31, 2007
Have just done the easiest fastest month end ever...I am a good influence!
Am now killing time till lock up/down/whatever
Have discovered solitaire on this computer...oh dear
Hairball son deletes solitaire from the computer at home because I have a reputation for playing endlessly....good meditation it is!
4 weeks till E day.....pooooooooooooo
Will be painting madly this week so dont expect to see me anywhere I dont have to be
Full moon ritual was lovely last night....
Have lost 2 farking kilos in a month.....poooo for sure....Isuppose thats okay...half a kilo a week is recommended yes?
Belly is much less round and protruding at any rate which makes jeans a bit longer and breathing more easier than before when stuffed into said jeans....
Had chocolate biscuit for breakfast yesterday...bloody cottage!
Had lovely workshop with Jac and Karen who rock at making drums for sure
Had very nice salad one day...must have another soon....
Did buy a step machine to work off calories and flabby bits too....most excellent bargain on clearance at Kmart for $40 instead of $99....
Have nothing else to share that I can think of at the moment...oh yes...have had one dozen bottles of sparkling chardy donated for exhibition....too bad I dont drink.....
Any hoo ....more at some point later down the track, along the beatenpathway of my life, some other time than this......xxxxxx

Have been for coffee with darlin'....something we don't do often enough anymore
I am quite pleased with the paintings I am working on.....I think...this is always a bonus!
Have also been ferrying kids to and fro, done shopping for dinner....sort of, had car window fixed and thought about housework but not done it as the water was cut off for most of the day due to people fixing things in the street....excellent excuse for not doing washing and it came with warning this time instead of waking up to no water as did happen the other day....
Found out a friend has died....this is sad but not as she was 80 something and had a bit of a struggle of a life and I know for a fact that she is now 'living it up' and dancing and drumming her moccasins off out there....
Am not doing market day at the cottage tomorrow as I have too much on my plate already....am painting and going for lunch with a friend who we haven't seen for yonks instead
Ran into Glorious (in Woollies) who is very gracious and accepting of the fact that I am not yet finished her painting....she would, sensibly I think, prefer me to do it when I am 'passionate' about it and as she says 'her walls aren't going anywhere'....
Have been commissioned by Fabbo Toni to do another painting....after Glorious' of course so thats exciting too..or it will be when I get to it
Having drum workshop on sunday at home due to very few (2) people coming...
Thats all for now I think....
Hope you are all having some peace in your hearts!

Darlin's firing was a disaster
shit bum fark indeed
6 weeks to go.....
we work well under pressure!
Have been out to backpassage AGAIN today.....bloody sister is going home tomorrow so good...
well....only in so far as that it will mean less trips to the poo place is all
I am trying to get in painting mode......thats why Im blogging of course
Harry Potter was purchased at 9.01 this morning for child who is suitably grateful....lots of people die apparently.....shhhhhh
My hole is filledfull if not fulfilled....
Only two giant needles were required and I was suitably numb for much drilling and digging around nervey bits.....
was very numb and couldn't swallow for several hours after but am fine now and hole-less too so all is good
I hear you yawn
my life is really boring for someone who is sooooo bloody busy isn't it...
I just don't see the point of leading you through the dull minutae of it.....shopping centres, car trips, shopping centres, car trips, shopping etc etc
oh....and washing and cleaning and washing and cleaning too....most riveting
so....read any good books lately?
Thursday, July 19, 2007
am bored titless
mother has gone out with sister
I am alone with no filing or banking or anything to do
the phones are quiet
and so here I am
as you do!
I nearly missed my dentist appointment this morning....thought it was at 10.40 when it was really at 9.40...oh dear...rang them at 9.36 to verify this misconcepyion and just lucky they had a cancellation huh!! Oh yes indeed I zipped in and must go back tommorrow to have my hole filled.....hmmmmm.....its a rather large hole and I anticipate needles and pain...POOOO
I seem to have been running for days and am not liking being stuck in this office doing zilch when I have so much to do...didnt think to bring my homework....poo again
I have found that I can indeed remember how to drive a manual car.....so much gooder...I actually feel safer in this car with its 'grunt'...its always good to know your car will do what you need it to when you need it to...something I was never quite positive of in my marycar for sure.....and a manual is a must for a control freak as I tend to be at times!
So, I am happy with my wheels....need suggestions for names though...angel isnt doing it for me Im afraid...more like Bruno or something, maybe Rocky or Rambo or some such mucho thing as he is a boy for sure.....
Darlin' is up at Nelson Bay glazing pots and preparing for his firing....its a big deal as this stuff is for the exhibition and he hasnt fired this kiln before so fingers crossed everyone that it all goes well!
I am a slackarse YAADer this first month...its been difficult to get it all together...I shall persevere even if I have to repeat!
I had to miss fluffy bunny night again, two years running...poo....all Tahni's fault!
Some week very soon I am going on strike and doing nothing for noone except me.....is starting to get me down, this constant rush around. Need to park and sit for a wee while...
Better go find some thing to read.....xxxxx

Not when you went to bed at 6.40 pm.....
Yes, I did
and slept all the way through
Am still waiting for wheels that are getting new brakes
Must go to backpassage for important conference
Have to take darlin's car!
He is a bit wobbly about this me driving his car business
but is better than him driving me in is car, yes?
I am aware of my slack blogging lately
I will get to it .......
when I have time and am not still half asleep
Don't hold your breath okay......
