A Quick Update

Hi my blog buddies,

We have had a busy week ahead including several appointments for me and Steve and even Coco was involved with a trip to the torture chamber (AKA the dog groomer).

Now I plan to get the house spic and span before the weekend as Steve has arranged some time off to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and we want to spend the time relaxing, not doing chores. I can’t believe it’s been almost a year already. We are planning on a quiet weekend at home with yummy meals and good company and no you are not invited, he he.

See you later

Hard to say goodbye

I’m still finding it difficult to come to terms with my friend Greg’s death  and I expect I will continue to do so for a while.

I was feeling fine on my way to pick Steve up from work the other night until I heard ‘In A New York Minute’ on the radio and the lyrics made me want to burst into tears.

Greg was the last person to sleep in our spare room  and usually I leave the sheets on the bed and strip them from the bed and wash them just before he comes to stay so they are nice and fresh. I decided it was time to strip the bed, but I just couldn’t do it. It’s hard to accept that he’ll never sleep there again. Perhaps I’ll be able to strip the bed next week.

Sorry to be all doom and gloom but it helps me feel better when I write about these things. It’s my way of processing my feelings.

Blueberry smoothie

I shared my smoothie recipe with my friend bluefish13 and she enjoyed it so much she passed it on to her mother.  I enjoy a blueberry smoothie most days for my afternoon tea. It’s a delish way of incorporating my 2 fruit servings into my day. Thought it was about time I shared it with the rest of my buddies.


I banana
1 cup of blueberries
½ cup soy milk
1 tsp chi seeds
4 tsp unsweetened yogurt

Blend ingredients together and enjoy.


Use frozen berries for a cooling drink.

Chi seeds were suggested to me by Steve, they are a healthy addition to the drink and apparently aid in weight loss.

I experiment with different fruits and ingredients before coming up with this recipe, but now this is the one I prefer.

Do you make your own smoothies?

I'm happy Bubbling along

Hi all,

I've been missing in action again because of my new hobby. Whitesnake and I have joined the Bubblews website and are enjoying writing about our days and submitting our poetry. So far it has been very lucrative for us, we've earned $125US (between the two of us) in our first month. We are paid for page views, likes, social media shares and comments. I'll continue writing over there while the money is good. If you want to stop by and say Hi, you can find us here...

Catch of the day

I love animals and am genuinely upset when I hear of animals in pain, but I honestly thought the story I’m about to tell you was a joke.

Peta has written an open letter to the manager of New Zealand’s national aquarium to request they take fish dishes off their menu. 
"We're calling on the National Aquarium of New Zealand and the Fish Bowl Cafe to get their act together", says Peta Australia Director of Campaigns Jason Baker. "How can people take the aquarium's supposed respect for fish seriously when they open their menus and choices of fish's body parts are staring them in the face?" 

The letter also reports that fish are intelligent animals which feel pain. I understand that fish are intelligent and feel pain, but I don’t expect they are going to look out into the dining room from their aquarium and say, “OMG, they’re eating Uncle Brian!” 

I find the whole story ridiculous. What do you think?

Bye for now
