Laid up...

Hey all. I know you are all wondering where I am.. right? ..right?
Well, anyway, I've had a minor procedure that has left me laid up in bed for a while, so I am not very mobile at the moment. All is good though so don't worry (I know you were..lol)
I will be back to my old self soon hopefully.
So have a great weekend and take care.

What do I get the love of my life for Valentines Day?

I wake up on Valentines day to a basket full of some of my favourite things...

Firstly I do my squinty-eyed look at hubby.. He has blown our $5 valentine budget. Again. 
In saying that the basket is full of chocolate-choc chip cookies, pink Oreos, my favourite Raffaello chocolates, and some ferrero rocher  chocolates, and a super cute soft white teddy. 


aww... how cute is that?  My man knows me.
What do I get the love of my life for Valentines day?

........A Meat Thermometer.....

....in my defence, he LOVED it......

The world according to ME.

Sitting on my lounge the other day, I was combing the knots out of my ridiculously long, wet, hair.
"How on earth do Mermaids comb their long hair?" I asked no one in particular..
Hubby, chuckling: "Um..they don't because they are mythical creatures" 
Me: "Still.... They have to comb it sometime..."
Hubby: "no, they don't, because they aren't real"
Me: "....even so, it's got to be a pain for them.."

perfectly reasonable if you ask me.

My wolf ate my Penguin.

Ok.. before you call PETA on me, let me make this clear that it wasn't a real wolf. Or a real penguin. When I find some spare time I like to play "Zoo Tycoon" on my PC. I find it fun, buying the different animals and making the exhibits perfect for them so they are happy. It's normally not too tricky, but for some reason my Arctic Wolves are not happy. No matter what I do for them. Yesterday, they were unhappy, again, still, I don't know. Anyway, one of them died of old age, so I thought I'd make them happy if I bought a companion for them. But I accidently clicked on the King Penguin button and placed the poor bird in with the wolves. I immediately realised my mistake but before I could click the undo button, one of my wolves charged over, ripped the penguin to bits and ate it.

That bird cost me $1100 dammit!

And STILL the wolves aren't happy....
