Plonkers! Its been a while...

Hi Plonkers!

I gave up blogging some time ago.... after 7 years of blogging every day!  

I loved it.  I loved the sense of community.  I loved sharing my silly life.  I loved sharing it all with the people I met who also loved blogging as much as I did.  I think after 7 years of blogging every day you realize just how much time and effort it takes to create, write, schedule and plan all your posts.  Not that my wee blog was particularly riveting or interesting.  I just enjoyed documenting stuff and sharing with others...

I still come here every so often to get some pictures I posted, or refer back to old posts or story I wrote.  I often remember and miss all the awesome people I met along the way with my wee blog.  Many have also given up blogging and moved on, some still blog but I've been away so long, I hardly know them anymore and have lost touch.

I may take it up again one day, when my kids are out of the house and I have nothing to do except share my memories.  Until then....blog on!

The Light Bulb went on and there was Music

Happy Monday, Plonkers.

Pinterest and I were visiting over the weekend, and I found some cool ideas for Teacher's Gifts for my kids.  The one I want to use is a screw-in light bulb with M & M's inside and a wee note that says "Thanx for helping to make my future bright".  I think its adorable, but I have a dilemma....

How the fek do I get the middle mechanism out of the bulb and open the back of the light bulb to get the sweeties inside?  

So, I went on The Google this morning to ask the question and find out what to do. Seems it's quite involved and is a 10 Step Process and it could be dangerous if I break some of those teeny weeny glass bits inside.  

Look, I don't think the teacher will be breaking the glass in case of emergency and eating the M & M's, but you never know.  I really don't want him to get glass shards stuck in his throat and bleed out and choke to death.  You know he has been instrumental in my child's education and development.  I'd rather avoid a bloody manslaughter case on my CV thank you very much.

So, any ideas how I can remove my finger prints from a light bulb and write on a piece of cardboard without leaving any traces of DNA?

Today is also Music Monday over at Xmas Dolly and I'm sharing some of my new playlist toons for your pleasure.  Enjoy xxx



I kinda slipped this one in for Megan who is learning to beatbox from YouTube and its pretty good. Nothing like these guys but she'll appreciate this one.

Friday....my Second Favourite F Word

For Christmas this year my Brother-In-Law and our niece is coming from Australia.

We are extremely excited to be seeing them as we haven't spent time with them for 2 years.  Its been a long time and we all have so much to catch up on. It will be so festive to have a big family get together on Christmas Day, have lunch and share the day swapping stories.

However, I'm secretly jealous, as I haven't seen my folks since April this year. I can't tell you how much I miss my mum and wish I could go there for Christmas too. Our budget just doesn't allow us this year, as we have a massive school fees bill that we need to sort out for 2016.

I'll be playing the lottery hoping to win a few thousand rands so that we can have a wee beach holiday with my mum and dad....

What are you plans for Christmas?
