Monday's Report


Hello Monday, what happened to Sunday, seems I forgot to write a post on Sunday, I did read about 40 blog posts but then sat down to watch telly and didn't get back to write a post, sorry for that, but I am here on this lovely Monday morning.

As most of the world will know there was a couple of cyclones here down under Marcia and Lam, neither of them were anyway near me, thankfully and none of my family were affected. The army has moved in to help with the clean up in Yeppoon and Rockhampton many homes are still without power although crews are working around the clock trying to get power back to homes and businesses. In Rockhampton generators were set up at traffic lights to keep them working and you know what happened some asshole went and stole them.

On the news here today is a lot of news about the Oscars, you know I don't watch award shows, never have enough time to waste doing so, for many years I use to watch the Logies which is Australia's television award show but I don't even watch them any more I can't stay up that late any more. Do you watch award shows? If so which is your favourite?

Tasha has came and picked Leo up to take him to school, as Tim doesn't want me to drive my car, the reason well it is missing and sounds like it is going to stall all the time it is being driven. When I mentioned it to Tim on Thursday he kind of just shrugged it off and thought I was over reacting but of course when he drove the car yesterday he changed his mind. He said he will get spark plugs and change them as he things that may be the many cause, last night he was out trying to get the spark plugs out but was unable to find the right spanner. I don't know what happened as I went to bed and left him to it, he was complaining that someone took his tools but I don't think that happened I think he has just misplaced them because his sheds are a total mess.

So I will have to get Tasha to also get Leo this afternoon, she will have to get one of the boys out early in order to get them both picked up this afternoon. I said I thought she should get Blain first as Blain last week asked a few times if he could see Leo's school. Yeah since she drove Jessica's car she has realised it isn't the big scary car she thought it was.

Last night when Leo had his bath he flooded the floor so much that the carpet in the hallway was wet with a nice puddle of water there, I was annoyed and a little bit angry, Leo said he was sorry and didn't mean to make such a mess. I ended up using 5 or 6 towels to mop up the water so of course this morning I am washing towels. My washing machine isn't dissolving the detergent and even the fabric softener and I was towels in fabric softener and when I went to get the towels out of the machine there was still undissolved stuff so I have had to run them through another wash this I find frustrating but little I can do about it. I can't afford to get another washing machine so I am just dealing like one does.

Another day in the life of Jo-Anne! Hope Tuesday is better..Lol!

Denise Covey said...

Well Jo-Anne, I live in Brisbane and we certainly got a lot of rain and some wind. Nothing like Yeppoon and Rocky. Two cyclones at once was novel. I hope the army gets those towns cleaned up pronto and they find somewhere for the 100+ people who lost their houses. Have a great week! :-)

Dearest Jo-Anne,
Well, your little disaster could have been worse, you get over that and move on!
Like you, I've never wasted any time watching those Oscars...
Hugs,
Mariette

Maybe you should drive the washer and throw the clothes in the car...

Dawn Saros-Kirk said...

I hate any of those award shows. I can't stand watching those people and the stupid stuff they say. They get paid way too much. Yes, I'm bitter. Lol. My husband is always losing stuff because he never puts stuff away and he has a huge mess in the garage.

Rita said...

I'm glad the cyclones weren't by you. Hope your car gets fixed and the carpet dries. :)

It's just become Monday here, so your post can be for Sunday and Monday.

Love,
Janie

Fancy people stealing the generators...some people will just steal anything. I feel for the people with no homes, especially if they have no where to stay, as I am sure many won't.
I don't watch the Oscars or any award show, I don't know who the people are and not interested really!

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah a pretty typical day

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah just another day in my life, it is now Tuesday and we will see how the day pans out

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

I knew those who was in Brisbane were ok as Michael flew to Brisbane for his grandmothers funeral on the day Marcia hit

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Leo usually floods the bathroom floor when he has a bath so nothing new, which maybe why I only got a little mad and more annoyed, oh well had to wash the towels anyway

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Now that would be interesting

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yeah I also think they get paid way to much and so many of them waste their money..........

Tim ended up finding his tools

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes the carpet has dried, Tim tried to fix the car last night but couldn't maybe today

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Now it is Tuesday

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

No I don't know who most of those at the Oscars are either, I know I was shocked that people stole the generators meant to power the traffic lights.

Gossip_Grl said...

WOW on the cyclones down your way. Sadly, the stolen generators sounds like my old neighborhood. Where I'm at in the U.S. we are in a deep freeze. I think it won't be long until the caribou and penguins find their way down here. Hoping things get better your way.

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Yes some people will steal anything they can get their hands on

Update on mum

After getting up this morning and throwing a load of washing on to wash I get a phone call from Sandra just as I was thinking of ringing...
