My mum and my cousin (both were on the family helliday) are both obsessive cleaners. You can see them struggling with their expressions as they look round our tip of a house, and that's after we've had a big tidy up in preparation of their infrequent visits. It's rather funny.


Lady Poppy makes sure that her favourite fridge magnet is very visible throughout anyone's stay. "A tidy house is the sign of a wasted life". Amen to that.

Life's too short for cleaning, that's why my SV gets a wash every time it rains.

Out on our weekly quadbike ride with my 3 year old grandson, when I decided
to let/teach him how to throw stones into the lagoon.

Of course he learned on the first one and had great time throwing stones and making the water splash.
Only problem was he didn't want to stop, so we had to ride back down the trail
for a ways to gather another pocket full of stones.
And he still wanted more.

I going have to devise some sort of bag or box to strap to the racks to carry more stones the next time. LOL
I think I've created a monster!!!

I've had my VFR parked up for the best part of two years due to house move and lack of interest.... Yesterday I cleared out some of the garage crap and found my optimate. 24hours later and my faithful steed fired up on the second time of asking. I feel the love stirring again...........
