Missing Millie

We had a lovely week with our recent fluffy little houseguest. Mr GeniAus said yesterday that he was missing Millie and so am I.

Billy's coming to Town

I'm so excited because I jusr bought tickets to see Billy Connolly when he comes to Australia in February.

Both Mr GeniAus and I are great fans of Billy. We laughed our heads off and had tears running down our cheeks when we we last went to one of his concerts. Mr GeniAus has been using one of Billy's jokes about bread since then, hopefully he will find a replacement at the concert.

Daughters of Allah

To save myself from having to tyype up a review I am presenting a vlogged review of Daughters of Allah by Ellen Mary Wilton ISBN 9780646528335.

As it is four years since this was published you may have trouble trying to purchase a copy. Your local public library is your best bet.

Surprise - Lovely Blog Award

Haphazard is an apt word to describe the way I post and manage this blog. It's just something that is there for me if I feel the need to share or record something from my personal life.

My genealogy blog GeniAus, where most of my blogging effort is directed, has received quite a few awards but this little blog doesn't get nor deserve the same recognition. It is always gratifying to be recognised by readers and fellow bloggers so I was absolutely delighted when my genimate Crissouli from The Back Fence of Genealogy bestowed The One Lovely Blog Award on this blog. Thanks Chris I am stoked.

The suggestions for passing on the award, if you wish to do so, are as follows... 
  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to that blog.
  • Share seven things about yourself – see below.
  • Nominate 15 bloggers you admire –or as many as you can think of!.
  • Contact your bloggers to let them know you’ve tagged them for the One Lovely Blog Award...

South Steyne

When I was a child a trip on the "South Steyne", a Manly Ferry , was a big adventure. I spotted the old girl at Darling Harbour last week in her new role as a restaurant.

Breakfast Visitor

As I was having breakfast in bed this morning this little chap watched me from our verandah railing.

Decrapifying Update

We continue to dispose of some of the stuff we have accumulated over the past 40 odd years.
