Bah Humbug!!! Where’s your Christmas Spirit?
No honestly I am in more of a writing mood than I was yesterday.. if that is humanely possibly.
PLEASE I implore you all (though I write because of the reasons I have previously stated) it does not mean in any way shape or form that you have to respond to everything I put on here , so please remember that. I won’t be offended if you don’t. I realise it’s time consuming. It has taken me just on 2 hours to answer my comments that have been kindly left and write the TGIF post and I haven’t gone into all the folks I follow and see what they have done since yesterday yet.
Craziness, madness??…Yes I spend all day staring at a computer screen and then I spend up to 6 hours when I get home doing the same thing.
The difference is I LOVE THIS.
I’m not a bored lonely old woman sitting in front of her computer with nothing better to do (in fact I probably could be putting a load of washing on). It was 38 deg C today, it’s hot here in OZ and the Evap Cooler is chugging away working over time trying to cope and Mr. S god love ‘im, is reading his Kindle upstairs. (When I say upstairs I mean up the 3 steps from the family room to the lounge room). He did come down and say “Still going” I replied with a “Yup” he returned laughing with “What a pity you can’t make money from it”.
Tis not for the money I assured him it’s because I love it so and he nodded, smiled and said “I know you do”.
I love Mr S for his patience and his tolerance towards my addiction.
This post is pretty much about nought, but still I must write…maybe I should get stuck into that Novel I started months ago..but I do not have the urge, I have the urge to do this. It is weird and possibly unproductive, but I do it none the less.
Brain going sideways – I mind dogs part time, it pays very little ($13 a day) but I do it because.
- I haven’t got my Tarsha with me any longer.
- I LOVE dogs.
- I love seeing their different personalities and their uniqueness.
- I feed them, medicate them, put on ointment, walk them, play with them, make sure they are comfy away from their mum and dad.
- Sometimes it’s for 2 days, sometimes it’s for a month.
- I don’t want to go through the pain of losing another fur baby, this way I get to have a dog in my life for as much or as little time as their owners are away.
Tonight we have Peta a Staffy X Terrier. Her owner rescued her from the RSPCA when she was 6 months old. She is 2 1/2 now. She has already assumed the protector role and barks at people walking past the house. She comes into the study, checks me out then waddles back out again.
I have minded dogs for quite some years now with this company (not my day job) and have looked after over 70 dogs from Chihuahuas to Malamutes 2 at one time..(who hogged the couch) apart from um err 2 (one Great Dane who chewed 3 entire windows of my new Cedar venetian wooden blinds & 1 male Husky who was such a princess..that I had to stand by HIS bowl hand feeding a BBQ chicken to him and if I wasn’t crouching eye level he barred teeth) I have loved every one of them.http://irishkatie.wordpress.com would be so proud 🙂
Brain returning…maybe I write because I feel so connected with those that follow me and also those that don’t. I am in a circle of friends that I have not set eyes upon and yet I want to give a group hug to…. ahh me getting melancholy so I shall stop now.
Brain returning sideways – I sold another book on LULU …no I did not write this post to plug my Memoir, no my intention was not to hook you in to brag. I am happy is all and wanted to share my happiness, coz I’m kinda chuffed.
Stay tuned readers…stay tuned
