From the Universe

When you can look beneath their behavior that hurt you, and you can see the frightened child - it becomes nearly impossible to be angry and carry a grudge.
And you so can.

The Universe

Besides, your happiness, abundance, health, and friendships are not dependent on how others behave.

From the Universe

Never compromise a dream.
Sure, take a step back, regroup, go bowling, but never compromise a dream.

The Universe

Well... I don't really bowl, but I do love the shoes.

Room 101

Never enough-ers

Never happy with their lot.. always have something to complain about. You know the ones... they get taken for a wonderful day out, and yet complain about the few spots of rain they got.. The would win the lottery and complain about having to pay taxes or having to go all the way across town to pick up the cheque.

These people need to be given special glasses that let's them see the good things in life. We'll call them posi-specs.

Shhh. Kate tagged me!

Rules: Once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you.

1. I have a passion for glass bricks. There is a house near where I live that has a wall with glass bricks details in it, and I love it. My dream house would have a glass brick feature wall somewhere.
2. I freely admit to picking my nose in the car.. cause of course no-one can see you when you're driving :)
3. I buy the Sunday Herald Sun every week, just for the crossword. It's a full page one that lasts me all week.
4. My favourite sandwich is egg mayo and beetroot.
5. I report people to the EPA if they drop litter, yet I don't pick up after my doggies morning toilet achievements.
6. I once did a 14 mile row across lake windermere, and didn't feel sore the next day (gee.. Those were the days!)
7. I have always wanted to play the bass guitar.
8. I have an obsession with "picking" (see point 2) I frequently "attend" to my cats nose, my dogs ears and eyes, and my son if he'll let me. I used to pick his nose with tweezers when he was a baby.
9. I built by own jewellery making desk with pull out drawers.. all by myself!
10. I used to "rally" in my mom's car when she lent it to me when I was younger, down a road the locals nicknamed "chicken run". I'd also do hand-brake turns in the gravel. She still doesn't know.
11. I broke up with my first boyfriend because he cut off his long hair.
12. I've always wanted a pet goat..
13. I'm a secret mobwars fanatic. (not secret any more)
14. I love the smell of petrol, paint, and sweaty gyms!
15. (damn this is getting hard!) I have recently been taking my mum to line dancing.. and I am actually enjoying it too!
16. I once went to a 70s fancy dress as a black chick.. complete with full body make up and afro wig (which I still have)
17. I avoid returning things I have bought because I hate going to shops and complaining.. even if the complaint is utterly legitimate and reasonable.
18. I once did correspondence courses on Photography and Interior Design. I didn't complete either of them.
19. My favourite flowers are Lillies... especially the white peace lily.
20. I was once good enough to swim for the Junior County Swim team. I gave it up before I got chance to take part in any competitions.
21. I started doing Karate because I had a crush on my "sensei" Several years after I quit, I bumped into him in the street and he made a pass at me, and I declined!
22. I have all my wisdom teeth, and never had any problems with them.
23. My favourite toys were Barbies and Lego.
24. I absolutely can't stand Kate Bush's voice. If a song of hers is playing I have to leave the room until it's over. It's like nails on a chalk board to me!
25. It's taken me a week to think of 25 things to put on this damned list!

They are slow, annoying and driving down a road with tram tracks scares the hell out of me.

Our House

New series of regular features will track the progress of our house being built.

We started this mammoth journey last April... and since then we have gone through the laborious, mind numbing task of buying land, completing paperwork, choosing builders, completing paperwork, designing house, completing paperwork, obtaining loans, completing paperwork, etc etc (you get the picture)
Back in August, I posted this. Finally, we have got the building permit, and I have been promised that the cutting and staking out will take place this week, ready for the slab...

Here's a pic of what our land looks like now:-

Our left hand neighbours (our house will look very much like this at the front)
Our right hand neighbours

The good thing about them getting their houses up first, is that we don't have to put up with living next door to a construction site... they do!

Check here regularly for step by step process on building your dream home :)
