P is for pepper.  Freshly cracked pepper on every meal!  I love it.

I have been known to go to Maccas just to pinch the sachets and carry them in my purse. If I am in a restaurant, I get tired of waiting for the waiter to bring a big oversized  grinder and then it is like a big ceremony to get a couple of sprinkles on what is by now a cold dinner.  I just pull out the sachets, sometimes I put the empty sachet in my pocket and sometimes I display it proudly in the middle of my empty dinner plate, just to be annoying!  Footnote: No, I do not know this guy.

Well, I am now complete! Yes it has taken me a while, but I now have SOUND!  BUT, I have just found another problem and makes me crack up every time, and that puts a smile on my face so it is all good.

Now I don’t want to really admit it, but I do not mind a bit of talk back radio of a morning. So I figured I could listen to this ‘NEW podcast stuff’ via the computer (I am turning into such a newbie geek).  I went to the radio website, clicked the appropriate tabs and then got a fright but it made me laugh.

Now I have never claimed to be a looker, I don’t see the sense in new clothes every season in the name of  ‘fashion’, I don’t wear makeup or even use moisturiser BUT I do insist on having my grey roots coloured every 5 weeks.

So I have no reason to point a finger but, there is a photo of one of the radio presenters that I think is a shocker! Like I said I have never claimed to be looker, blah blah….. I wish I had my confidence like some people.  This is how I feel if I have to wear makeup…

I am trying to resist sitting at the computer so much BUT sometimes it is hard to leave.  There is so much stuff out there that I like to keep up on.  And some of the blogs crack me up.

There is one old bugger, ( http://crabbyoldfart.wordpress.com/about/ )   but he only writes once a week and I love it.  Of course I know he could be a pimply girl of 16 years but I don’t care if that is true, I love the stories BUT I must wash my kitchen floor today!

What have I been doing lately?

Where does my time go, I am busy but what have I done!

For christmas I bought myself a slide/35mm convertor that will make a jpeg of each frame.  Now I have played around with it but have not got into using it properly yet.

I went to my parents and collected old slides that they haven’t seen in years.  It has taken me 2 days to sort and collate and the total came to about 360, and there are more to come.  When I finished, the mere thought of spending time with my little gadget was daunting!  So I have arranged for a professional to do the job.  I know, what a cop out. But I have convinced myself that it will be money well spent as my parents are in their 80’s and if I don’t do it now, they may never see them!  I will use my convertor gadget soon!

No I am not THIS lazy, but I thought it was worth sharing!

Well today I am going back to our spare room to sort out stuff.  The room is tidy ( I buy cupboards to hide my stuff/junk ) but we are hoping to recarpet our home soon and I know that I should throw out things.

Did you know that…………..the Tokyo World Lanes Bowling Center is the largest bowling establishment in the world, it has 252 lanes……………………….
