Like sands through the hour glass....

I took this photo at the beach near my Mum's house, I find the beach, the sea, perhaps water in general quite relaxing. This beach is pretty stony usually so to find the sand on display was a real thrill!

I gotta get out more! (Oh, and if anyone can give me some pointers on why YouTube won't put the clips up like they used to show on this blog - leave me a detailed, idiot-proof message on how to fix it!)

Monday Moaning

No progress on the house yet. Don't hold your breath, folks.

Just one of those days....again

Honestly, dealing with the Insurance company is doing our heads in. At least we take some comfort from the fact that we know they have picked on the wrong people to diddle about.

5 weeks ago we had a phone call from one of the 'pod leaders' (yes, pods are now the 'in thing' for this crap) advising she would set up an urgent meeting to clarify some minor outstanding issues - and then went to ground. Our calls to her to follow up on this have gone unanswered....with a bit of luck she will have been chewed up and spat out by the next pod.

In the neatime, we amuse ourselves by putting a blackboard on our poor ol' fence and make our comments known to all and sundry. And do you know - we have never been tagged with grafitti!! I assume most people feel this way.

And, because it is May that means it is New Zealand music will delight you with some local morsels of talent! Firstly, an ol' favourite of mine from quite a few years ago Greg Johnson....this guy gets better every year. Hope you enjoy it!
