Discounting shopping and visits to our local witch doctor, my normal day starts with a 500ml glass of filtered-boiled and refrigerated tap water, repeated midday. breakfast usually an apple followed by cereal + tea or coffee with lite milk and non sugar sweetener. Approx about eight am read daily paper The Sydney Daily Telegraph (delivered) followed by an Email check on my blog site, half hour minimum.
I am not an accredited Chef , however, I have after a number of years in retirement; rudimentary skills which put me in charge of the main meal of the day , meaning dinner which is usually around five pm.

So far we have no takers; or will I be their hero and pull a thorn from these wee tigers paws.
Tomorrow my Beautiful Gr/daughter Tamara Rose will be fifteen years old, Happy Birthday Gorgeous XXX.
Despite the pommie joke; I shall now take a shower-second today, then afterwards watch a movie on foxtel or play UNO with my beloved which I usually win about four out of five, then after drinkies I shall retire to the boudoir(to sleep) and wake refreshed for the usual forthcoming weekend festivities.
