Busy Busy Busy!!!

I have been really busy doing a whole lot, of not much at all.. In lieu of Easter eggs David had his hair coloured.. I like it. I would have posted a better pic but Dave is a typical teen and spent a lot of time making silly faces at the camera. Little does he know that I am not afraid to use the silly photos as leverage whenever I need to..* insert evil laugh.. muuawaaahahhaaa

We have had some much needed rain. Not a lot of rain but enough rain so that I don't have to buy a load of water just yet..*phew...

David stayed at Veronica's last night and is staying there tonight as well.. Thanks Vonnie the cheque is in the mail..

So today I played 'my music' and cooked all day.

Yummy slow cooked lamb casserole..

Fresh bread and bread rolls..

I took these pics after the spouse and I had sampled the rolls.. If Dave had been at home I would only have had photos of crumbs...

Thanks Vonnie the cheque really is in the mail *honest*...

My little car died yesterday.. I had gotten quite attached to my ancient little mazda. (even though I only owned it for 6 months) I really liked the fact that you only had to whisper the words petrol and wave an oily rag in its general direction...

Here is my new car...Yay!!!! shiny.. The newest car I have ever owned was an 88 magna.. This car was made in the .. drumroll please.... the gasp nineties.. Wow!!!!

My uncle has sold this shiny shiny car to me...

Thanks heaps!!!! The best thing about my new Mazda is that David can sit in it comfortably.. Yay..( he is 6 foot 3 and growing every day)

Luckily I am Optimistic...

"Tis the season to be jolly" Tra la la la laa lalalaaaaaaar.. Ooops! Wrong commercial opportunity. I mean wrong religious festival aka holiday thingy.... *sigh*

Lucky for Jesus, His mother was a saint. He made it to adulthood, albeit a brief one *sighs again*

I am so close to axe murdering my teenage son that it isn't funny. The only thing that is keeping my son firmly anchored to this life is the fact that," I AM AN OPTIMIST!!!" Things in Casa Rockyponds must get better.. or for Frogs sake I am going to run away and join the circus...

Last year I watched a docco on ABC and it was all about brain development. Apparently toddlers brains and teenagers brains are eeerily similar. *cue spooky music*.

I would never ever ask Miss Amy (toddler) to light the woodheater in the kitchen..
I did ask David (teenager) to light the woodheater in the kitchen..


We have had a run of very hot weather and I haven't needed to light the fire for a while, so there were a couple of things on top of the fire-box.. A watering can was one of them..

And this my dear friends is just the thin end of the wedge...

Veronica writes most beautifully about her little brother....
Actually she describes the teenage boy annoyability to a T....

Yours Frustratedly Kim ...xoxox

All Children.. (cover your eyes)

Tracey from Why Bother, as part of her Easter Greetings to the Bloggiverse created this awesome piece of blingery..

To say that I am in total awe of her skills would be a massive understatement...

I am also extremely indebted to Tracey because I have reached the age of 42 and I only just now have found out where the easter eggs came from..

Thankyou Tracey.. Thankyou! Thankyou! Thankyou!

an update..

This Map shows the fires that are burning around the state.
Fire is spreading in one or more directions. Effective control strategies are not in place for the entire perimeter.

Whole of fire perimeter is behind identifiable control lines. The fire is not out, active fire may be within the perimeter. Firefighting activities continue to extinguish the fire. The fire could breach control lines under difficult weather conditions

Fire is at a stage where firefighting resources are only required for patrol purposes

The red triangle in the middle of the map is the fire that has been worrying us.. But as you can see from this sky-shot today is a much nicer day, weather wise. It has started to drizzle as I write this. So fingers crossed people, that the drizzle turns into rain and helps our firies out..

cheers kim xx

edited to add.. the fire is now contained and it is still drizzling.. yay

Phew!!! luckily the strong winds forecast for this afternoon haven't arrived ,Yet....

This is the view from the western side of my house. all my "weather comes from the west"

This is the smoke from a big fire roughly 30 or so kilometres away.. that is "as the crow flies" or as the fucking embers float, whichever way you like to look at it.. It is too farking close..

All is well at the moment.Even though it is still a stinking hot 34 degrees at 8.30 pm. (and that is just wrong...)
It is very still and the strong and gusty nor westerlies haven't arrived..

Yay...( I know I said that twice) but it IS hot..

So at the moment all is quiet on the Western Front...
