Happy New Year

Hi all. Haven’t been on here for a while. Sorry, not neglect, just a crazy busy life and I’m one of those people who likes to wait till she has something worthy of saying before putting it out there.

So to start the year off with a bang, I’ve decided to share some thoughts on the book I’m currently reading. The Stand, Stephen King.

The Stand Stephen King

 

I haven’t finished yet so no spoilers please, but it’s quite spine-chilling the amount of things he writes about, which at that time (the 70’s I believe) were purely fictional, but if you look at the world now, it’s very easy to believe many of them have come true. Apart from the worldwide virus taking us all out … and they way GMO’s, pollution etc are going, it’s not a totally far-fetched scenario either.

Scary times people. We are living a Stephen King Thriller, and we all know how many make it out of those alive…

Not trying to be a downer, but I think we all need to try our utmost to help alleviate the damage humans are doing to this planet. At least as much as in our power to do so. Research things. Be aware. Don’t blindly trust those in charge, for contrary to what they say, they do NOT always (in fact rarely) have our best interests at heart. Money and greed have been taking a terrible toll on the world. It cannot continue to have free reign to do so.

Apart from that, be well, be safe and if you can, be happy.

outback spectacular

Had a ball of a time recently on holiday in Australia with family. As per usual, I was totally spoiled by being surprised with a night out at the Outback Spectacular show. Absolutely loved it! The show was full-on and breathtaking. Costumes, lighting and performance all top-notch. And although they were catering for over 1000 guests, the meal arrived hot and delicious.

I highly recommend seeing one of these shows for a great night out (especially if you’re particularly fond of horses).

This holiday was super special as I had the privilege of being present for the birth of my very first grandchild, a bonny wee boy who has stolen a big chunk of my heart.

My dopey dog at home decided to go neurotic and get extreme separation anxiety, resulting in jumping a high fence, not quite making it and separating the bones in his femur …. so I’m the vets favourite customer this month, again!

Ah well, the fun never stops in this neck of the woods. Take care all. Mind those fences.
