Trusting creative ideas? Mmm …

creativity / creativity enhancement / finding your passion / You must be kidding?

I have been revamping my room (formerly called ‘my office’) to be a more creative space. Recently I bought a lovely new mat and was concerned the wheels on my ‘office’ chair might damage it. I started looking for a swivel chair without wheels. I looked at hundreds of sites but found very few. I found one that is quite unusual but discovered it would cost me over $200 to have it delivered. Then the […]

‘Easy Assembly’ (Part One)

creativity / Just for fun / online shopping / pressure to perform / You must be kidding?

Being keen for a bargain, I did some online shopping and ordered two bedside tables – to be assembled by me! I have never done anything more than Lego in the past (and I wasn’t too flash at that) so this is a real learning experience. I am tackling one cupboard at a time – naturally! It took a good part of this afternoon to get two drawers assembled. Stay tuned for the finished product! […]

creativity / Real Estate Writing / The workplace / Writing / You must be kidding?

I recently resigned from my part-time job as a Real Estate Writer with our local community newspaper. Each week I would visit three properties and write an article on each one. I also edited about a dozen small articles written by the real estate sales reps. Real estate writing has a bad reputation however it isn’t that difficult to write up an honest description of a property with a focus on its positive attributes. Below […]

You may not recognise the images below at first glance. I took the photos with my Supereyes microscope – it is great fun but I hadn’t used it for a while. I have another site at http://www.smallcreativity.wordpress.com if you would like to see some more images. The photos are of a brazil nut, walnut and almond (in their shells).

Federal Election and Online Shopping

Acceptance / politics / Uncategorized / You must be kidding?

I finally tired of listening to the Federal Election results on Saturday night. I DID put in several hours inĀ front of the TV. Instead I went on my computer and did some online shopping for new sheets and towels (end of financial year sales). Being satisfied that I got a good bargain I went off to bed still not knowing the election outcome. Here we are a few days later and my new sheets and […]

One of those days

creativity / You must be kidding?

Have you experienced a time where you wondered if the world has vanished and you are the only one left? Or could it be that I am the only one who is not overwhelmed with Easter guests and activities. I have sent copious emails, left messages on Facebook, finished reading my current books, caught up with all the items on my ‘to do’ list – in other words, I have been very productive. There is […]

What does fear mean for you?

Acceptance / Friends and family / You must be kidding?

I used to be frightened of lions and elephants when I was a child. That may have been reasonable if I lived somewhere near the jungle or even a zoo – I didn’t. Some of the children’s stories I grew up with were very scary – Hansel and Gretal, Red Riding Hood – even Cinderella with those ugly step-sisters. My two brothers really enjoyed scaring the daylights out of me. They would pretend to be […]

Acceptance / Serenity prayer / Wisdom too late / You must be kidding?

It has been an interesting year in dealing with purchases and repairs. 1. Washer/dryer was four years old and stopped working properly. Fortunately I had an extended warranty and was given a full refund and then purchased a new washer and dryer. 2. Vacuum cleaner stopped working – out of warranty. I rang the interstate company for advice and they were able to tell me how to reset its computer settings (on a vacuum cleaner?) […]

funny / Holidays / UK & Ireland / Uncategorized / You must be kidding?

In 2008 we visited England and Ireland. I had a day to myself and decided to go on a guided tour. Passengers boarded the coach at a central location and we visited St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and other key London sites. Part of the journey was by boat to the Tower of London. The details are a bit foggy now but I remember we were told to be ready to board the coach at […]
