Well I have'nt mentioned my maggie's for a while. They are doing beautifully except I do seem to be missing one. I only seem to get 2 out of the 3 babies coming down. I love the afternoons when I come home from work and dish out the bread and honey for the lorikeets and seed for the other birds and then the mince for the magpies. I then get a drink and sit back and enjoy my little managerie. So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"


About 2 weeks ago I bit the bullet and purchased the Cricut Design Studio from Scrapbook City. I must say it is one of the greatest purchases I have made in a long time. It costs $145.00 but it was soooo worth it. To be able to make words and shapes and my own designs however I want is fantastic. I have to save up for the cricut expression next.If you own a cricut/cricut expression and purchase this little gem you won't be sorry. So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"
Seems I got a bit carried away yesterday raving on about my holidays and I forgot the most important post of 2007 CHRISTMAS. How could I forget to post about christmas. ok so here is a recap. Christmas Eve we had Mum, Ralph and my dear Aunt Aino over (who is as wacky as all heck, but in a sane way)we had a BBQ and then opened our presents. I think I will start to have "christmas day" on christmas eve. It was much more fun and cooler. for some reason my family like to give me alcohol even my husband so I ended up with a bottle of bundy, a bottle of scotch and a bottle of Omni. I also received my fantabulous cuttlebug from mum and remote control for my camera from andrew (which i bought).







One christmas day we packed up and went down to Paradise Point for breakfast with my sister and her family. Lots of food and plenty of things for the kids to do.We came home at about lunch time then packed up to get ready to go off to Victoria. So christmas this year wasn't too bad.So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"

hello all. Yes yes I know what a slacker I am. I hope that everyones christmas and new year where good and safe. We left the rainy skies of Queensland on boxing day and headed off to victoria via laurieton and Canberra. We finally arrived at Lakes entrance on Friday afternoon. 1700 long kilometres later. it was so nice to be back at Bellbrae and to be able to spend New Years Eve with dad, Joy, Julie and Peter. We had a great 10th Anniversary (NYE) we went on a river cruise up to Wyanga Winery for sampling and lunch totally smashed by the time Joy came down to the harbour to pick us up. We did take home with us 12 bottles of wine, 1 bottle of port and 1 bottle of muscat liquer. NYE was great (after I woke up from my nanna nap) Peter and Julie had friends around and we partied on into the night well I partied till about 2am I think . I let Andrew buy a six pack of bundy rum lights on the friday and he managed to make them last till the Monday so that was good and responsible (god I hope he is not going to be like me lol).




The weather down at Lakes was sooooooooo very hot we had 36-40 degree days arghhh. We left on the Wednesday and stopped at Canberra on the way home. Ed and Andrew went to the war muesuem and I went to Cockington Gardens a little minature village place unfortunately I had on a very thin shirt and no sun screen so I had to hop from shadow to shadow and just take pictures as quickly as I could so I did'nt get sunburnt. I think I was only there for about an hour. We arrived home on Friday afternoon, the most glorious site to ever see was my garage door going up to signal that we had made it home alive and well.

Well the magpies have come out of the nest and happily coming down to the yard I have even managed to name them. there is Whinny because he/she gets a hoarse throat after a while, then there is snuffles because he/she sounds like they have a snotty nose and throat and then there is Rowdy for obvious reason. They still come down each afternoon and sometimes during the day. Fatboy seems to have disappeared I think the lorikeets scare him as there are so many of them and only 1 of him. Well that is enough catch up for the moment I will try and come in tomorrow to do some more and to post some photos.So till next time thank you for reading "Ravings of a lunatic", please secure your tray table and return your seats to their upright position and have a nice day"
