You know you have really nothing to say when your post title is like this one hey?! I just know I still enjoy blogging and haven’t written (anything other than book reviews; and they don’t count) for ages and I also know that the longer it is that I don’t write the harder it will be. Just gotta get back into the routine of twaddling out my personal waffle on the screen and making letting you all read it.
So here, have a look at some of the things that go round inside my brain on any given day at any given time. Some of it’s overly serious.
For instance: It’s the 75th Anniversary of Hitler’s rise to power this year…..and he rose to that position of nasty dictator through a democracy. I find that just a little bit unnerving. We kind of sit back in a democracy and think that all’s well and nice and fair and equitable. Here’s something he said: “How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don’t think.” Doesn’t that just make you stop and think! Sure made me think and more thinking on this I will do!
Or this one: Zimbabwe. Does anyone else think about Zimbabwe? Check out this blog if you want to read what I’ve been reading about the situation there. I find it hard to believe things like this can not only happen but can go on for so long. And no, I don’t have the answer. I wish I did. And China…what’s with China? And Chinese arms going to Zimbabwe? Huh? And the Olympics? Huh?
I know, I know not very cheery, so how about this one: I think about how long it is acceptable to have washing on the line before the neighbours will notice. You know the wash that goes out and is nearly dry but you (OK, I) don’t bring in because I am procrastinating and then it rains and so there’s no point bringing it in any more and maybe the sun will come out in the morning and dry it and then I’ll bring it in. And so on. Repeat all week.
Or this one: Why am I getting so many spam comments on my Christmas post and no others?
Or this one: ( and I know I’m not alone on this one) What’s for dinner? Last night I made a beef stir fry. I didn’t really want beef stir fry, after all I’m happy with a sandwich or… or …well nothing, but I thought it best that the children eat and that I should probably make something for my husband working hard all day and all. WELL. R1 yelled his head off hungry while I was making it, so I fed him other things to keep him going until dinner was ready, by which time he wasn’t hungry. B3 ate plain rice, E5 ate about half, and as for husband, he didn’t have any. It was all served and wrapped up in the fridge for him to eat later and when he came home, he had an ice cream cone and was all satisfied because he’d had a late lunch. Why do I bother? I do not Know.
And today I ‘m thinking that tomorrow is ANZAC day. (It’s the day that marks the first major military campaign of the Australians and New Zealanders and a day when both Australians and New Zealanders remember those who have served.) And last year I remember wanting to go to a dawn service. Maybe tomorrow I will do it.
