Laurie..where are you heading for in Europe.. as you say don't forget your winter woolies. use me comming down your neck of the woods I can't carry my double sleeping bag...Watched the Cricket from Hobart last night and they showed the snow on the hills. So I will stick to sunny Queensland.. Had enough snow here.. Joddle Belle....Bobbin Head where on earth is that.. People normally carry those in the back window of their cars. Anyway have a great Barbie... Thats all I read before the whole thread went off...

Hi Sue. You're right, not much happening. Weather's cooled down a bit in Mudgee, but expected to creep up again later in the week. Think I'll have an early night and do a bit of reading. Nigh night, Lew Lew *blows xxx good night*


Aussieone Report 7 Feb 2006 10:02

Hello Michael It was just a thought incase it got too hot in sunny Queensland lol. But Hobarts temperature for tomorrow is expected to be 27 degrees celsius, so I you may have missed the cold snap. Cheers Sue


Aussieone Report 7 Feb 2006 10:06

Lew Lew Yes I wont be far out of bed myself. I have to get a good nights sleep for all my activities I have on tomorrow. There are some sexy guys in town for a couple of days and I have to go and watch them train. Make sure they are stretching their calf muscles and hamstrings properly, of course it has to be done by watching from behind them lol. They just happen to be wearing brown and gold uniforms too lol. Roll on footy cant wait he he Cheers Sue

Hi All Lara what have you done I don't come on the boards for a day & when I do everything has gone haywire. Where do you stay when you come up this way in winter I know you have told me but I forget (old age setting in) Jim asked me the other day Jennifer I live in Mackay & am in the process of moving to Calen so I guess that you arn't to far away as the crow flies. We will be in our new house in about a week getting new furniture delivered next Wednesday great. I hope you are all well & coping with the heat. see you all soon Cilla

Ere you lot ,this ain't on you know,i tried to sneak on here to spy on Mary and poof ,nothing. I bet it was her,knowing i was trying to find out where she was hanging out,and where she was getting all these lovely meals . Don't suppose you will mind an extra visitor and i don't take up much room,but our Mary may do by the time she gets home if she dosn't leave all the pastry alone hee hee. i will come back more often if you will let me ,you all seem to be such a cheerful lot,and there is no sign of aggro [bliss].

Im about to learn how to get onto and drive on the M7 & M5 very soon - is that any advantage getting down your way? Im soooo skeered - I'll probably end up in Canberra!!!! (gidday JA) Rudee, sorry to hear about Barb's Dad - its probably a blessing for him. Hope she is ok. My mind has gone blank this morning - p'raps I better have a shower and wake meself up a bit more. Have a great day all Joodles


Lewella Report 7 Feb 2006 20:38

Mornin' all. Just after 7.30 am in Mudgee and it's really cooled down overnight - finally a decent nights sleep. Thank you all for your welcomes. Joodles, you live so close, we're nearly related (that's how it works in a small country town). It's okay Shazz, I'm not pickin' on Rebs, just keeping an eye on her to make sure she doesn't run amoke! Well, another day in the office, so to all have a great day and I'll try and sneak a peek when the boss ain't lookin' Lew Lew

Morning peeps, We're still here, no more fairies flying around over night??? lol!! Silly Lara. (((big hug))) I have to say though, not impressed with the way I got the blame (or my xmas g-string did) It's so easy to push the blame on the baby of the family isn't it!! sniff. I'm hurt, really hurt.sniff *puts on sunnies and large hat to hide mischievious expression on face* Mike, are you trying to tell me I'll be safe 'cause your wife will be with you, or warning me because she is a battleaxe armed with daggers? lol!! Seriously though. I'm happy to come and help pass the time away, especially if you are going to be there so long. I expect you'll get ferried to the domestic airport after clearing customs. Or do they make you catch the train??? Rudes, ((hug for Barb)) take care mate. Catch up with you soon. xx Well, now that I've laid claim to the puter I can go and make a coffee. I'm not good in the morning without my litre of caffeine. lol!! *waves to Joodles, LewLew, Devly, Laurie, Lara, Vonny and everyone else who's names are too mention (or remember before coffee) * Have a great day, Rebs x

Well!! computer goes down for 36 hours and when I come back the world's shifted!!!! Was it just our thread or did any other's go as well? cause I was in the middle of reading another thread Monday evening and suddenly nothing. Haven't been able to get on since but finally turned my D-link off this morning, then back on (vaguely remembered someone saying that a while ago and thought it couldn't hurt) and presto, here I am. See we have some more peeps who have found us so not all bad. :) Lovely to 'meet ' you Lew Lew (although I know you were leading Rebs astray in the naughty corner :) My hubby wanted to buy us a property in 'Upper Botarbalah' (sp?) about 28 years ago. I hear it's a very nice address now. I seem to remember the property he had his eye on had a very old original mud brick house that he thought would be perfect to live in (me and three kids under 31/2). He was not pleased with me when I refused! My new contact has come through!!!!!!! However, need some advice. How can you have some peeps in your GR Tree that just float around unconected to anyone? can you just add people willy nilly? Sorry if this is obvious to others but I have only ever connected all my rellies that I add on here but this new contact has the ones I am interested in just entered on their own so I can't work out the connection to my tree! *waves to all now I've found you* Vonny PS has someone kept a list of us all? cause I know a lot of peeps didn't come on general and may never find us!
