We have been relaxing. Visiting and doing all the little daily doings of life. I have been back in this area since April 2010 and routines are still in formation. I shall make a 10 key point list of how I passed one day here in the bush.

  1. Had breakfast on the front verandah.
  2. played with my granddaughter
  3. talked by phone with my son in the mountains
  4. went to Urunga with Kati B and Mopsy and had lunch at the Bakery.
  5. took the South Arm Road out to Brierfield.
  6. visited with friends and children
  7. waited for Izzy to pick me up
  8. came back down the South Arm Road in the Starwagon
  9. had slow cooked soup
  10. settled in with tv and scrabble

Since I am in the second half of July and regaining the sheer joy of blogging by feeling perfectly free to do and say and study whatever I wish, instead of becoming enmeshed with some strange blogging formulae which were beginning to feel like Grandfather Sanders’ tightly laced corsets – I shall re-enter the TROVE and look for  stuff about the Australian Bush.
