On my to-do list

to-do list

Other than my usual stuff Terry has added a few things to my to-do list that she wants me to make. Im going to list those, then cover what is already on my to-do list. I’m not feeling overwhelmed – not yet anyway – but I do think it won’t be too long before I start drawing projects from a hat, so that everything gets an equal opportunity.

Cats are good for people

Wart and Schmeegle Cats - cats are good for people

Yep – cats are good for people. Not just for cat-lovers, but for all people, even people who don’t really like cats. Cats are good for people. All people. Anyone who knows me will know I am not a great cat fan. Somewhere along the line this important life fact was not passed along to Catkind. Or maybe it was, but the because of the Perverse Nature of Catness they – Catkind – have chosen…

Happy Birthday Get Out of Bed

It was still a Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday get out of bed was the text message I received from my youngest son yesterday morning on my birthday, and yes, I was still in bed, with my alarm set to go off only 45 minutes later, when I would have had 5 hours sleep. Was it a happy birthday for me yesterday? I’d …

Red Dog Blanket – Our Lizzy and her Red Dog Blanket

Princess Lizzy in her red dog blanket, getting ready for a nap on a comfy chair in our home office

Our Lizzy loves her red dog blanket! We’re not sure of the material the red dog blanket is made from, and it’s not really a dog blanket, just some scrap material we were given some time back, but the material is a sort of slippery silky, stretchy lycra sort of fabric. Well, no matter that it’s not a proper dog blanket, Lizzy still loves her red dog blanket. It’s not very warm, either, this red dog blanket, but what’s nice about it is that it’s …

5km parkrun – My 4th Nahoon Point 5km parkrun

Nahoon Point 5km parkrun

What a day to do a Nahoon Point 5km parkrun. It’s raining in East London today, 4 April 2015, it’s Easter weekend, we were both a little chesty when we woke up this morning, we had to push the car to start, we were worried about running out of petrol as had no time to stop at a garage along the way, and we arrived with just 2 minutes to spare before the 5km parkrun started. But, hey, another 5km parkrun …

Nahoon Point parkrun 3

I did my third Nahoon Point parkrun on Saturday past – 28 March 2015. It was also my third parkrun ever. After last week’s disastrous finish for my 2nd parkrun, which left me just a tad knackered – as well as a little disoriented, with a few minor chest pains, I decided to take the whole run easier. At my age, and my level of fitness, with my weight problem, even thinking of running should have …

Sanook – Sanuk – Fun – Good Times

a small part of Sanook restaurant in Berea

Doesn’t matter how you spell it, here in East London, it all applies at Sanook Cafe, in Berea East London, South Africa. The Sanook/Sanuk/fun/Good Times begin when trying to find Sanook. It IS on Chamberlain Road. But it is also kind of stuck away. To get to the most Sanook/Sanuk/fun/Good Times restaurant in East London, you do need to drive slowly, and study the signage. Once you find the Sanook signage, you won’t miss it ever again. There are …

Sanook Menu Delights – Fun Time Eating Out in Berea in East London

edge of pizza crust

The fun delights of the Sanook menu: A fun time at Sanook cafe in Berea in East London was our next choice for an outing using one of my recent East London photography competition prizes – a Sanook meal voucher to the value of R250. We went to eat out at Sanook in Berea on Saturday evening, 28 March 2015. Since I’ve already mentioned a Sanook meal voucher, I’ll move onto the cost of our eating out at Sanook – for the …

Cafe Bella – Eating Out at “The Cafe Beautiful”

One of the prizes Terry won at a recent photography competition was a meal for 2 at Cafe Bella. I am not generally critical of restaurants and cafes – no reason why I should be, because they save me a lot of time and effort, and at the end of it all I can just get up and walk away, knowing that there is a being somewhere within the host organization who will restore the crockery and cutlery to cleanness, to be …

Saturday Morning Nahoon Point parkrun

part of Nahoon Point parkrun

Absolutely nothing unusual about Nahoon Point parkrun being on a Saturday morning. parkrun internationally is a Saturday Morning thing. As I sit here writing this I so wish I was one of the Elect Few who have no control over their working hours – being made to slave away at the whim of another. But no. I do control my Saturday morning activities. We made the decision to limit our Craft Market activities during the year, which automatically gave us Saturday mornings, free and clear.

1 Nahoon Point parkrun 2 Nahoon Point parkrun Runs in East London

almost at the finish of the Nahoon Point parkrun

After my 1st Nahoon Point parkrun I just had to do another. Now it’s 2 Nahoon Point parkrun runs down and many more to go! My first Nahoon Point parkrun was a week ago, the 136th one, on 14 March 2015, and this morning I did my second Nahoon Point parkrun, the 137th one. I cannot recall what made me suddenly decide to start doing some Nahoon Point parkrun runs. Perhaps it’s because my eldest son has now done 39 Sunrise on Sea parkrun runs, and because I used to run a lot in my younger years, and …
