Photo a Day Challenge - Day 15 Happiness

I was pondering about this one, post a photo of me, happy, or of something I take pleasure from... OR, post a photo of someone who's obviously happy... But instead, I thought I would post a photo (or two) of some of the pets that are happy.

First up, we have poor old Macc... Here he is but a pup, but he looks happy!

Happy Macc

Next, is Bronty... She's always happy to see me when I get home from work, or if I've been out! It doesn't last long though, as when she comes in and onto her bed, she's happily sleeping!!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 14 Something you're Reading

I'm currently reading "We need to talk about Kevin". It is difficult reading in that it is in the 'third person' and the author has styled it in a 'letters' format to the father of their son (who's in a prison for mass murder)!

We need to talk about Kevin

I got this in London recently, and was reading whilst waiting for flights and communicating back home via 'Whats App' and SMS/Facebook... The later, communication, was a welcomed distraction due to the difficult style this book is in. BUT, having said that, it is a very good read!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 12 Close Up

I thought I would post something a little different today, I mean I could have posted one of the many macro's I have, but when looking through my photos, pondering what to post, I knew I had something from a trip to the Tramway Museum at Loftus. Here is the track that runs into the Royal National Park, it use to have mainline trains running along it, but thats long gone... Kind of sad really to not have the RNP serviced by Cityrail...

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 11 Where you Sleep

About 18 months ago, I decided to get a new bed, both mattress and bed frame itself... The bed we had was already several years old, and I thought it time (now being by myself) it was time to renew..

I found a really nice bed frame (bed-head & bed-end) on eBay, whilst I did a great deal on a new mattress. The only problem with it all is that its LUCKY I am tall as when I sit on the mattress, my feet are NOWHERE near the floor!!!

New Bed Mattress


In other news, today was my first day back at work after 3.5 months off work. There was/is a bit to catch-up on, but there was also a few emails that simply got sent straight to the trash bin!! But I got a fair amount of it sorted!

Tomorrow, is another day... Its also a 20/20 day!!

Photo a Day Challenge - Day 10 Childhood

I looked and looked for most of the morning for some photos I had from growing up - all to no avail... I searched my networked hard drive, my desktop PC, nothing. I looked out in the garage as I thought I had an album, but NO, nothing, so I think they must still be with mum! But, I had a thought I had one in FB, so when I looked, BINGO, I found one!


By the looks of it, and given my arm is in a cast, I think I was c. 14. I think I had broken my arm (if memory serves me right, it was a 'green stick' fracture up the fibular) out on a camp I was on. I wished I had a better haircut though on this day, but I do honestly think it was wind blown though!!! Oh the memories...

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!!
