Message 1335389 - Posted: 7 Feb 2013, 6:51:09 UTC - in response to Message 1335335.

At 8pm this evening, it will be exactly 2 years ago my angel Oonah died.
Difficult week I'm having...Luckily it doesn't seem to influence the kids too much.

The loss of a small child may well be one of the most painful things a person can experience.
Two years can be both an eternity and a mere moment in time....

Children can be incredibly resilient. A Blessing, I believe.

A toast, then, to her memory.
And a Health to those left behind, to Continue on Life's journey,
and to always Remember...

Amen to that. She'll be forever in the heart of lots of people

We went to a children's play yesterday called Babayaka.
Tells the story of an evil witch who lives in the dark woods.
Quite scary! With thunder and lighting and darkness with creepy noises...
Yoko was so afraid! Quite understandable...It said 5+ on the ticket for a reason.
Yoko is 5 but I think it was too scary for children of that age.

Why does anyone mentioning they would do something "If only I could get of my butt and do it" make me think of a very childish joke?





The joke goes along the lines:


"What are tacks on chairs a sign of?"






"I don't know"









"The sign of an early spring......."




(Sorry Mark, I just read your post about having a tenth cruncher that needs you to get a degree of motivation out of your chair to get it sorted....)

I'm not sure I do like it!

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side,
His youthful hose, well saved, a world too wide

Ok Ok I cant get into my dinner suit any more, last time I wore it was 3 years ago ... BUT I do not have a bum bag!!! Specs and slippers, er, yes ....

Not much organising of the Koala needed...
I was just thinking I would like to try a pint of 6X, and one of the Koala appeared with a superbly poured glass for me.

Talking with him he did explain they have had a "bit of an issue" with one of the Wombats behind the bar who kept getting the size of glass required for a particular drink confused in that he was serving wine in pint glasses, but ale in small wine glasses, then moaning that he couldn't get the requisite six glasses of an 1876 Bordeaux from a bottle...
