WOMAN.......

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ... enough money within her control to move out and rent a place of her own, even if she never wants to or needs to...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ... something perfect to wear if the employer, or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE . a youth she's content to leave behind....
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .. a past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age....
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ... a set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill, and a black lace bra...

A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .. one friend who always makes her laugh... and one who lets her cry...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE ... a good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .. eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems, and a recipe for a meal, that will make her guests feel honored...
A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE .. a feeling of control over her destiny...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... how to fall in love without losing herself..
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... how to quit a job,
break up with a lover, and confront a friend without; ruining the friendship...

EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... when to try harder... and WHEN TO WALK AWAY...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... that she can't change the length of her calves, the width of her hips, or the nature of her parents..
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... that her childhood may not have been perfect...but it's over...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... what she would and wouldn't do for love or more...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... how to live alone... even if she doesn't like it...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. . whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW... where to go... be it to her best friend's kitchen table.. or a charming Inn in the woods... when her soul needs soothing...
EVERY WOMAN SHOULD KNOW.. What she can and can't accomplish in a day...
a month ...
and a year...

I love this verse;

He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing. (Job 8:21)

New years eve was spent with our Scottish friends in the next road that had a HogMany Party. What an atmosphere; Margret had booked a bagpipe player and drummer to see the new year in, they played Amazing Grace it was faaaaaaabulous. I enjoyed myself so much and managed to dance the night away till the wee small hours and rolled in at 5am much to the embarrassment of our 11 year old!

On the Road to no-where !


Between boxing day and new year we were invited to go to a place called 'Broken Hill' with only 2 hours notice we managed to get organized and set off for a 6 hour drive in land to the out back !! (i'm sure Andy only said yes cos he thought he could fix it when we got there)

Anyway what an amazing journey l couldn't even begin to put it into words. This photo was taken on the Mundi Mundi plains its proper cowboy country.
We visited where they filmed 'MadMax' and had a drink in the saloon there.
It was very hot (116)

We saw all sorts on the way kangeroos,emus,goats, and when we got there lots of bugs!!
We also saw whirly whirleys which are sand tornados that move across the ground but there is no wind at all; some are quite big...... very strange!
