Apart from special occasions I don’t do much baking. Today I made an Anzac Slice and Air fried Apple Slices.
ANZAC stands for Australia New Zealand Army Corps. Tomorrow is ÀNZAC Day.
I didn’t have any chocolate chips so I compromised and used Turkish Delight Chocolate, chopped it up. I am not expecting any visitors until next June so my stash should last me a few days. I found the recipe on Mr Google.
PS: It was Cherry Ripe Chocolate I used not Turkish Delight 🙂.
Hello my friendly blogger friends. I am planning an international holiday in September 2023.
This is my plan: Depart Brisbane , fly to Hong Kong and stay there for 2 nights and do some sightseeing tours. Board a cruise ship that will sail to Brisbane Sept 5th – 21st. Day excursions include Nha Trang, Ho Chi Minh City Singapore, Lombok and Darwin.
I need to make up my mind and secure my cruise ship booking by next Tuesday..April 19th.
I have all these questions running through my mind. I will be 73 , I will be a solo traveller, what about Covid, what about my safety ? What about the weather ? What about the monsoon season ?
I am fully vaccinated. I have previously travelled solo and never had a problem.
My son said to think seriously about it, but he didn’t say don’t do it Mum. I think my son is worried about my two nights in Hong Kong. My close friend said ‘I’m sure you will enjoy yourself.
I would be grateful and appreciate any comments you might have. I am limited to a tight budget, cruising is economical and I do have a passion for it.
November 2021 I was fortunate to see the Van Gogh Alive Exhibition here in Brisbane. I wasn’t able to sit and watch the entire 40 minute screen projection of his life….numerous people there and no spare seats. I wandered around aimlessly and took lots of photos, and treated myself to a souvenir book. I will show some of the photos I took but without an explanation …enjoy.
I thoroughly enjoyed the Van Gogh Exhibition. 🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻
No response from the quotes I requested for professional help. I did make phone contact with another service , not available until Friday February 4th and the fee would be $100 per hour.
The cluttered dump.room
I decided to get stuck in and rest whenever I needed to. I threw several bags into the rubbish, made some donations to charity and sold a couple of items on marketplace. I only kept what I reckon I might need for art and craft.
My little storeroom is looking so much better. I can now walk in there and access items on the shelves. I plan to get some hooks on the wall to hang some bags.
In my living area I still have several boxes of photos and DVDs to sort through . Even though my back is saying ouch I am happy with my effort so far. Plus I have saved myself $$$ 👍🙂.
Months ago I bought these boxes for loose photos that haven’t made it to an album. That’s my task to do in the evening while watching TV.
In May 2019 I moved into social housing for seniors. My single accommodation is compact and to be honest no room to hoard. I think who ever designed these units must have thought the potential tenant won’t need any room for treasures, hobbies etc.
They say that living in a cluttered environment can cause your mind to feel cluttered.
I have requested quotes from a couple of professional declutter / organisers firms. Even though we are living in difficult times due to Covid we still have to live and can’t just sit and wait for a better time. I have decided there is no time like the present. I also have to accept that I need help due to my health issues. Meanwhile I will start to dispose of rubbish, advertise some items on marketplace.
To all my WordPress family I hope your festive season is filled with love, joy, peace and happiness. Thankyou for your love and encouraging support throughout this year, much appreciated .Merry Christmas xo
