Rainy day life check

<-- It's raining and raining and raining today so I'm catching up on all my inside-the-house jobs. I whipped up these summery trousers this morning (in the background is the material I've used). They'll be fabulous for working in Cairns next week. I'm not quite so willowy as the model, so they look a little less - well, willowy - on me.

Isn't it great to see that the Jews, Muslims and Christians can all come together when the issue is important enough? Like, say condemning gays, for example. Really bodes well for the world. 'We hate you and you, and you're going to burn in hell... but we hate gays most of all, don't we, my brother?'

Eww, gross
In other important news, I am feeling quite seedy today after removing two ticks yesterday - big fat shellbacks who seem to have spent a fair bit of time feasting on my body before I found them - one on my scalp and one in soft skin where one's leg meets one's torso.Today I'm achey and swollen and generally cranky.

The main problem with our toilet arrangement is that when it rains one has to crouch on the grass holding a large golf umbrella. The other problem is that when one crouches over grass in tick season, ticks jump on one. As demonstrated.

And offering you the benefit of my poysonal growf...
I had my second life coaching session yesterday. I am so focussed now. Well not yet, but I will be, any minute, I'm sure. I have just completed this checklist, which I reproduce here for your own poysonal growf journey.

Gawd! *eyes rolling back in head*

I'm impressed, just by the clutter thing.

Two litres a day? That's ridiculous.
I did worst in finances, which I knew I would - mine are a mess.
