Photo a Day Challenge - Day 9 Daily Routine

I really pondered over this one, as there really in no set routine! I mean there ARE some things which I won't mention for obvious reasons, but it really is more of a 'see how it goes' sort of thing! The only other thing I can think of is feeding the pets morning and night - a cup of kibble for Bronty whilst Jasmine gets a scoop of dry morning/night and a pouch of wet food night time only! Hardly photo worthy I think!

Paste on Brush

So there you have it, about one of the only things that IS part of a fixed, daily routine, brushing my teeth!!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 8 Your Sky

This is a belated post, of which day entries will be corrected, but I inadvertently forgot this day - Your Sky. Having said that, and to confuse you a little, here is what the sky will look like in the future on Wednesday 11th Jan whilst at the 20/20 Big Bash, where I will predict Sydney Thunder will get thrashed by the Perth Schorchers!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 7 Favourite

Favourite, whats my favourite?? Well thats a 'how longs a piece of string' kind of question, but there is a lot of things I call 'favourite'! But, one of my MOST favourite things would be a nice, mown yard!


This may seem a bit weird, obscene, maybe just freaky, but after lawns have been mowed is a sense of completion and you can sit back and enjoy... Its even better if there a shower of rain just after as well, but alas it was not to be with brilliant sunshine for the remainder of the day!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 6 Makes You Smile

There's many a thing that makes me smile, some more than others, but I was perplexed today thinking about this one... Was it something today that made me smile? Something from a memory?

Today though, yes I did have a smile, several times actually, but I digress! Today was at Inner City Golf, where BF was using a voucher he got for Christmas. He had a lesson with the Pro, whilst M and I waited so as we could 'play' our round! We got to pick 'where' we'd play, and I suggested it HAD to be the home of golf - St Andrews! We had 2 hours to do our thing, and whilst it was good, very good, it really wasn't the same as the real thing. It was difficult to gauge the greens in particular when it was time to putt! But, we had a good time, so that bought a smile.

I headed home to rest up a bit, and the cricket was on, day 4 from the SCG here in Sydney. Earlier in the day, Sachin Tundulkar was trying for his 100th 100 in the SCG's 100th Year of Cricket... He was bowled by Australian Captain Michael Clarke and caught in the slip cordon by Michael Hussey for 80 runs, and yes, that also made me smile.

But in looking through my pictures, since it is a 'Photo a Day' thing, I was drawn to back in the archives so to speak, to Bali in 2007. I've posted this photo a couple of time before, but the smile on this old ladies weathered face, is infectious, in that it made me smile, both on the day, and yes, today as well... So this is my 'Makes You Smile' day! Happy Smiling!!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 5 Something you Wore

Here we are at day 5 - something your wore... I thought about this today, should I take a photo of what I wore today? Nup, it was sticky hot/humid and didn't feel like it (not that it was photo worthy either mind you...). I could've simply posted a photo of the 'Mambo Loud Shirts' I have, but thats been done before so I didn't think it would really be right to re-post... So, I'd like to share a photo I have from my recent trip instead!!

Anfield, LFC

Here I am sitting in the corner of 'The Kop' at Anfield, home of the Liverpool Football Club. As you can see, I have my leather jacket on, as with a tee-shirt, sleeveless jacket a scarf as well! The only thing you can't see is the beanie I wore as well as the gloves!!! It was cold!!

Heres a bit of the history of 'The Kop', and more importantly, Anfield Ground.

In 1985 the Heysel tragedy claimed 39 Juventus fans' lives and a change was brought about to football. Anfield changed two years later with a more 'at-home' ground made. The Kemlyn Road stand was given a fresh look with coloured seats and a police-room was built. In 1989 after the Hillsborough disaster the Taylor Report stated the all grounds in the country would be all-seater. This recommendation in itself led to the demolishing of the most famous stand in the game - the Kop.

The last set of major changes that have taken place have all occurred in the nineties. The Kemlyn road stand was finally demolished and re-built as a huge double decker cantilever stand. The plans to build the stand had been made much earlier but two old ladies living in Kemlyn Road refused to move out of their house and the plans were put on hold. When one of the old ladies died the other finally moved out and the plans were put into action. The stand was officially opened on 1st September 1992 by Lennart Johansson and named the Centenary stand. The stand includes executive boxes and function suites as well as some 11,000 seats.

The Kop was rebuilt in 1994 after the Taylor report and became all seated. It was the end of an era for Anfield although in the circumstances a move that had to be made. Today the Kop holds just over 13,000 seated fans and can on occasions produce a similar noise to that of years ago. It may never be the same again but the legend lives on.

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 4 Letterbox

Today's theme, is a letterbox, but alas, mine is a boring kinda letterbox though! And, I had this grand plan today of getting a few different types, from the pic below, 'rustic', to modern (and this may also include 'bad taste' to cheap and then practical being the Post Office Box... But the day got away from me, and I had to catch up with a mate up from Melbourne, so this is all I got...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 3 Something you adore

Ok, so for today its suppose to be something you adore... But in life, there's often things you adore that you don't see... Things you adore, that you can no longer touch... Things you adore you once use to smell... But for me, all of these are true in some way or another...

So for now, whilst I can't seem to think of anything in particular, I will have to put a member of my current 'family'... Bronty!


She's really come to be a very special member of my family! Theres no denying her cuteness, her personality in the way she 'speaks' when being directed to her bed, and yet she's so cute lying in her bed, on her back with all four legs in the air... Isn't she just 'adorable'!!!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 2 BREAKFAST

Ok, it may not look good, but its an omelette... Honest it is!! With ham, tomato and cheese...

Omelette fail (still tasted good)

Yesterday, I spent most of it with my left foot up resting. By the end of the day though, 2 x Panadine Forte, I was somewhat 'zombish' and ended up in bed rather early... Today though, although my foot is still somewhat sore, it is a bit better - at least I can walk (a little) on it!! So, an omelette for breakfast, was quick and easy to do!!

Happy New Year!!!

Although this year, I did not get out into the city to see the fireworks to welcome in 2012, I did manage to see some out at Penrith, at Panthers no less!! However, as it was a VERY last minute decision, i was camera less.... Oh well, never mind! But this is how Sydney showed off, just HOW to bring in the New Year!!
