Granny and a bit of this and that.

Hello All.

I have lost my blogging mojo.
If anyone finds it please let me know.

You might think I have posted the same picture in error.
Not true.
The above one was taken with the little Samsung.
I am getting quite attached to it.

The next one was also with the little camera.
Taken in my son’s garden onChristmas day.


I rather like it.

Mex is still not well.
I am sure he now has bronchitis.
I have been nagging him to go to the doctor for an anti-biotic.
He won’t listen.
I want him to go for the sake of his chest.
And my sanity.
Can’t stand the sound of that hacking cough.
Think I might sleep in Wendy’s room tonight.
At least Tom doesn’t cough.
Though he might purr a lot.

Back to the other camera.
Isn’t the colour of that sea amazing?
And,YES, WordPress….colour IS spelled with a U.

I have been feeling a bit out of it today.
Post Christmas down.
Which is strange.
I never had a pre- Christmas up.

I think that it might be the idea that I only have ten days holiday left.
I am not ready to face another year.

It has been a bit of a crappy year.
Wendy got cancer.
My dear friend lost her mother six months ago.
And her brother on the 17th.
I didn’t really know either of them.
But I hurt for her.
My step DIL got cancer of the thyroid and had to have it removed(she is doing well)
Another friend(not a close one) has lymph cancer and is undergoing chemo.
I got told I had that lung thingy that I can’t spell.
And the hip problem which is now fine.
Tell me you plan to stick needles into my hips and I cure myself.
Damn fast.
I think there were a couple of other nasties but I have buried them.

There must have been some good stuff.
I survived the year without killing anyone at work.
Or Mex.
Though that could still happen.
I got two free holidays to Swaziland.
I am still talking to three of my kids.
Three out of four is not bad.
I,no longer, have any debt….that is a fantastic feeling.
Now to save some money.
I have wonderful friends.
That is probably the best.

And now I am off to bed.
I have slept SO much.
I hope that is a good thing.
And not an escape.



  1. I’m sure others will agree with me: you take the most beautiful pictures of the sea, Granny. Try not to think too much 🙂

    • Hi Yada…I am trying not to think at all!!!!

  2. I believe there is a Mojo conference happening somewhere, mine os also awol

    • Hi Sidey….well I hope it comes back inspired!

  3. My mojo was operating at full steam. Then I lost the internet. My mojo packed a cabin trunk …

  4. Love the pix.

    • Thanks Col…I am enjoying the scrabble….I think!

  5. I think that losing your blogging momento seems to be a common thing so do not worry about will survive..and come back twice as good..if that is possible.
    Color is American and Colour is the rest of the world but I think colour is correct

  6. now I shall continue from where I was so rudely interrupted

    Have a Happy New Year Granny Lots of love

    • Hi Patrecia…I really hope 2012 is a MUCH better year for you.

  7. Congrats! Being out of debt is oh-so-liberating! Yay!

    After two record night’s sleep . . . last night I returned to 7 1/2 hours of slumber. Must have been a bug. 😉

    • Ahhhhhhhhh NR…the sleep bug….I still have it.

  8. Love you girl. So sorry Mex is still struggling. Its a horrible virus this and does go on to the chest. He needs antibiotics….I wish you both a fantastic 2012. I think your mojo is hanging out somewhere with mine!! xxx

    • Hello Colleen….Mex will just not listen to me…would like to smack him.
      Love you too my friend.

  9. I love the colours in the third picture.

    • Hi elaine…yes me too…it is the same colour today…hmmm…haven’t downloaded today’s pics yet.

  10. I can’t wait to get a camera, Gran. Your photo’s are so inspiring and I don’t have any scenery around here really… but I have wanted a digital camera for ever and my son (MAY) get me one! Lots of sadness for you this year – I hope 2012 is brilliant for a change.

    • Hi Adee…it will change your life….it did mine.

  11. granny…I am sure you will find your mojo in due time..everyone has these moments…I know I do. I like all your photos, but the first one really caught my eye..the scenery is absolutely serene !!

    • Hi Penny…Swaziland is incredibly beautiful and so laid back….with lovely people.

  12. I love that you shared the news. Yep. I agree there are times I just don’t want to sit down and blog. So I don’t. I find giving myself permission to skip something…usually makes me tell myself what I’m missing. Thanks for sharing the truth we all go through. Good Luck finding that muse…sneaky little imp that she is.

    • Hi Barb…thank you for the visit.
      Ahhhh so the muse is female…that explains a lot!

  13. It sure was a hard year, my friend, thank you for your support. Love you xxx

    • Hello cindy…yes my friend…2012 wil be better…for both of us.
      Love you too.

  14. You never fail to lift my spirit..or, my mojo as it were..yes beautiful colo-u-r in that sea…I love both ways of spelling it as both are so colorful…same with Savior ya know. Oh, I meant Saviour…
    Bless You
    Happy New Year

    • Thanks Paul…the same to you love.

  15. Beautiful flowers, what are they called. I was looking at cameras today so difficult to make a choice. I also feel my blog is standing still it needs something new.

    • Hi Gobetween…I agree…so hard to choose…the only thing I don’t like about the little Samsung is it has no viewfinder but I am getting used to it.
      The flower is a Franjipani.

  16. Counting your blessings is always a good way of getting over the downs.

    • Hi Tilly…not really down…just flat.

  17. Your little camera works well. Perhaps 2012 will be a better year for all of us. We can hope.

    • Absolutely Maire….positive vibes all round.

  18. Granny, I’m glad your body is doing a slow-down. Sometimes our bods are smarter than us!

    • Mine is on such a go slow I hope I can kickstart it on Monday.
