Choose life. Life is wonderful.

Monday, 9 September 2013


 When I chased after money, I never had enough. When I got my life on purpose and focused on giving of myself and everything that arrived into my life, then I was prosperous.

It is Monday - the start of a lovely new week.

On Saturday P:-) and I went to the circus.  The Moscow Circus was in Miranda, one of the southern suburbs of Sydney - about 40 minutes drive away.

 We really enjoyed it. No photos were allowed to be taken inside the tent so I don't have any pictures. We had a ringside seat and we could see that the  acrobats doubled up on many acts. They were extremely clever.

One of the cleverest acts, I saw right up close but have no idea how it was done. A man and a woman worked on an act where the woman changes her clothes numerous times behind some sort of screen, but each change was done in a couple of seconds. It seemed impossible. It was the same sort of thing as an act on Australia's got talent 2012. Click here to see it and you will get the idea.

We had planned to call in and see P:-)'s 2 granddaughters who live across the road but unfortunately they were out so we left them the balloons P :-) had bought for them. 

Later they sent this picture of the girls with the balloons.

I don't usually show people on my blog but their parents put this on Facebook so I don't think they would mind.

My wonderful P:-) has been cleaning up my back yard. I added some stuff from the garage and we took a trip to the tip.

As it turned out we had 260 kilos of stuff which ended up being rather expensive but it had to go. No doubt there will be a few more trips yet. Perhaps a skip would be good value.

Meanwhile, Jasper the grand-dog makes himself at home in the sun.

  1. It can be hard, purging and cleaning out stuff. Some has emotional ties, whilst others, just needed to be binned years ago. Try offering some of your stuff for sale if possible and certainly for free on your street frontage or through facebook. It not only saves you some money (at the tip) but it may help others and it could even reduce land fill for a while at least.

    1. I have taken loads of stuff to the Salovo's. This was really just rubbish.A rabbit hutch that was 25 years old - just falling apart and riddled with borers. An old bike with the frame rusted out. Lots of disintegrating plastic pots. The tip was a last resort for stuff that was useless.
