Ups and Downs

Good morning Vietnam all!


Let me start off by apologising for Eskom letting me wake up in total darkness yesterday morning, and no, it had nothing to do with the usual hour I get up at Wink! No electricity = no post, no coffee and a very miserable Halfy stomping around the house in the wee hours of the morning.


UPS: Not an Uninterrupted Power Supply, but that’s actually something to consider for the house, even if it’s just for the computer. Two very big UPS at the moment!


Hubby is here for the weekend (can you lot see the huge ear to ear grin on my mug?) It’s been a very looong four weeks without him, so I shall not whisper about the fact that I woke up with terrible backache from having to adjust to having him hog the entire bed again!


And the second big UP? We finally started our move to new premises yesterday! After a lot of politcal inhouse fighting to establish who has the bigger set of brass ones, keys being accepted by one party and then being declined by the other, a directive finally came through from our highest authority and that was that. To say that I am thoroughly sick and tired of the politics that accompanies establishing your own little kingdom by appointing friends and relatives as ‘yes men/women’ would be the understatement of the year. At least the move has commenced, and I have 5 days left in Hell before my particular division start our great trek on the 21st!


Happy days are indeed here again…


DOWNS: Hubby lost poor little e-storage during the night on Thursday. He called mid-morning yesterday to say he had woken to find the little mite dead to the world in the morning. Sadly, I fear he may have had internal injuries from his fall out of the nest which was a couple of stories high, or he was just too small. Maybe a combination of both? I don’t know.


With that, let me love and leave you to haul hubby’s rear out of bed and to our hair guru for his 8am appointment and whatever else he has planned for the day. I shall catch up with you all later.

  1. oh sad. poor hubby. luv a man who cares though.
    totally laughing though about bed-hog. awesome. luv the way u write. keep talking.

  2. So sad for your loss. The little babe must have crept into your hearts, even for the short while you had him…

  3. You’re actually, finally going to move?

    Sorry about the birdie 😦

  4. Sorry about tiny e-storage; I was looking forward to seeing him grow. Tell hubby not to feel too bad – raising baby birds is often unsuccessful as I have found out for myself.
    Good luck with the move.

  5. Oh, so sad that the bird didn’t make it; I was really hoping for a happy ending. How lovely of your hubby to try, though.

  6. it has been a while since I have done my DUF’s – the F for forwards. Hope you have a great weekend with hubby 🙂

  7. It’s always a sad thing when the baby birds we hand raise don’t make it. Humans so seldom make good bird-parents. We try so hard, but something about pre-digesting insects and worms was the explanation I was given. He’s a wonderful man to try anyway.

    Glad you are having a weelend together.

    About the move, if it actually happens on the due day, you can go home afterwards and get high

  8. Sorry about baby bird. But happy for you to have weekend with hubby. I see that big grin! 🙂

  9. Not good re baby feathers 😦 Fabulous on the move – YAY, YAY, YAY – Regards to GR and Marmee – luv Wildie 🙂
