FUN FUN FUN

So much has happened this week, I feel like I'm floating right now and have my sparkle back. 
Apart from our son, dil and their children coming up on Good Friday we had a relatively quiet Easter.  We thought they were staying for the weekend, they had other ideas and did a 10 hour round trip to visit us.  My gosh the Easter bunny didn't even visit until I put a status on good old face book stating that fact after wishing everyone a happy Easter.  Then my Easter bunny went out to search for some gluten free chocolate for me.  What a wonderful Easter Bear he is spoiling me.

This week has been full of so many good times and funny times.  Bear is  back to himself except for his eye problems but hopefully that will be sorted at the end of this month. There has been plenty of fun spanky times which I've really missed whilst he has been sick.  Funny how you feel when there is a drought even if only for a short period of time.

  One of my face book friends from Canada asked me if I would match make him to any of my friends as he is lonely. Now if you stop to think of this he is in Canada and we live in Australia, how is that going to solve his problem.  I hooked him up with one friend in particular just to see where it would lead. They chatted for a while until he said he wouldn't leave his family but expected her to leave hers.
He was very disappointed when she refused.  I kindly told him that things happen for a reason and the fact that they aren't going to become an item is because there is a special someone waiting for him,  maybe she is in front of his eyes. Anyway he is staying in touch with my friend to see if it leads anywhere.  Talk about desperate!
If you know anyone in Canada looking for someone I can send them his way.



I've been participating in a photo a day challenge  on face book since the beginning of this year.  I also did this years ago when it was first starting out.  Back then it was a small fun thing within Australia.  Now it has become a huge thing world wide with 32.000 members posting their photos each day. Well my photo was one of five selected the other day for the Fab Five for night lights. Its the one down the bottom left. I was stoked being chosen out of 32.000 other photos.  There is no prize just the honour of being chosen.
 
 

On Friday a group Bear and I belong to had a Mad Hatters Tea Party. I decided to go as the Queen of hearts,  made myself a hat and bought a RED wig to go with it. 
Once Bear saw the wig on me he was NOT HAPPY as he really loves my hair, goodness knows why as I don't.  Come Friday I dressed up to fit the part, add the wig and the hat then went off to join in the fun. 

Bear was a party pooper as he doesn't really like socialising very much. Luckily in one way Bear wasn't there as all the men were flirting.   ( I didn't flirt back)  Never knew RED HEADS
were so popular, thought it was BLONDES.  I told Bear about it all when I arrived back home and found myself over his knee for both wearing the red wig and having guys flirt with me. Was a fun end to a lovely week.



Its my birthday next month,  our daughters had planned a surprise dinner for me to celebrate as its a BIG 0 birthday.  Our dil has spoilt it by telling me all the plans the girls have made, how SHE thinks we should go to a different restaurant on a different day.  Oh dear be prepared everyone  WORLD WAR 3 is about to start over here. 
So if you hear any loud explosions you'll know its just my family.  We've managed to be one happy family since Bears birthday last October,  it hasn't even lasted 6 months until my birthday.  DISAPPOINTED is an understatement!



End of daylight savings here this weekend, clocks go back an hour at 3am Sunday morning.


 
 
  My Bear was a boy scout so has already changed all our clocks and batteries in smoke detectors even though it is 4pm Saturday.  Bit confusing as now I have to think what it the actual time, he always likes to jump the gun and be prepared.

Hope all my blogger friends who are poorly have made an improvement during this week. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
Hugs Lindy

  1. Hi lindy, oh what a lovely week you have had! I am so glad things are going well before the birthday bash!! I think I lucked out on the dil thing, mine would have been the one doing the surprise and making the cake! I am off to the hairdressers next week to go copper and blonde, sounds like red is the way to go though!!
    Hope you have a fun weekend to complete the week
    love Jan, xx

    1. Hi Jan, Maybe you better rethink your hair colour, copper and blonde will look lovely though. My hair is its natural colour. Our son picks on me about the grey showing through these days, so I tell him its my wisdom high lights.
      Do you want to swap dils, would love to trade mine in. She is a pain in the tushy, not the nice type though that I like after a spanking. Our girls are going to kill her one of these days.
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend and feeling a bit more cheery.
      Hugs Lindy xx

    2. Hi Lindy, not a chance I am keeping her forever! I have no grey yet, I don't think I will go grey, my grandma was still blonde at 84 and it looks like I will be like her. Yay!! Shame about your dil, not much you can do is there?
      love Jan, xx

  2. Congratulations on your photo being chosen, Lindy...top 5 our 32,000 is an awesome honor! Happy to hear that Bear's health is improving...sending prayers and healing energy for his eye problems. Evidently, they have not kept him from hitting the target of your tush. LOL Your friend in Canada is too funny...won't consider leaving his family and totally expects your Australia friend to leave hers. Relocating countries is no small matter! Sorry you are having 'children' issues...do know the feeling. *sigh* Hang in there and lean into Bear.

    Hugs and blessings...Cat

    1. Thanks Cat. Bear is becoming good at hitting his target with one eye. Didn't need to paint on a sign after all. I'm trying my hardest to lean into Bear with our dil, she drives me crazy. She needs one of your barn burners.

    1. Hi Abby, I never knew until yesterday that Bear isn't fond of red heads. Maybe its the temper thing, guess he has enough with me. LOL!
      glad someone else is like my Bear as far as turning the clocks early.
      Lucky you having calm waters in your family. Wish I could say the same.

  4. So happy to hear you have your sparkle back, Lindy, and that Bear is feeling better. Your dil really needs a good spanking! I'm a redhead, thanks to L'Oreal, and intend to stay that way for a while yet.

  5. Thanks Rosie. Our dil certainly does need a good spanking. Sorry didn't mean to offend anyone with the red wig thing.
    One of our grandsons has red hair. Think its just that Bear likes my hair the way it is, going grey. LOL!

  7. Goodness, Lindy, I was practically out of breath just reading of your busy times. Glad Bear's arm is back in action. That always seems to make things right.

    Happy Birthday to you! I am not a fan of the decade thing. Do OK until I get to the next decade, then ask myself, "How did this happen?"

    Sending Hugs Downunder,

    1. Hi Willie, MY fb friend in Canada is 64 and in his words 5'4' and carrying a few extra pounds.
      Don't think anyone would flirt with me. If they do they need new glasses. LOL!

  10. Hi Lindy! :) WHOA! Quite a fun time that you and Bear are having over there! So glad to hear that all is well with Bear, and that he has his spank on! Too funny about the spanking after the wig, hat (very cute), and "flirting". LOL!

    Sorry about your DIL! UGH! Your birthday is supposed to be fun- not something that becomes stressful! Your DIL needs a spanking! I bet that it will all be nice in the end. As for the 0 bday- the last one did not bother me. I just had a 6 birthday and that puts me on the other side, and closer to the 0 that i"m not sure that I will love. We are as young as we feel! And that is that! right? LOL!

    Your photos are awesome! So happy for you about the recognition. Lights are hard to capture well. Really beautiful! I need to get busy and back to my camera. Thanks for sharing your photos with us! Many hugs,

    <3 Katie

    Hope things are going well with you and Rob on the house hunting front.
