Friday Feature on Deb’s World
Winners & Losers #13
Welcome to Week 13 of my Friday roundup, where I share some of the good, the bad and the ugly ‘stuff’ I’ve taken note of during the week. I’m really enjoying this collection of bits and pieces and love getting your responses – thanks so much to everyone who reads, comments and shares. You are very welcome to join me in this quest each week by leaving me a comment with your own winners and losers. You can also leave me a link to your favourite post from the week and I’ll be happy to share.
Musings on a Monday quote 🙂
This week’s quote sums me up perfectly!! How about you? Do you laugh and give away the punchline in the middle of telling a joke/story, do you snort when you laugh, do you laugh at yourself too? I think there’s a time and a place for all the serious stuff!
Did you know I share a new quote each Monday on Instagram? Are you following me on Insta yet – click here to join in the fun!
Vivid in Sydney
Five years ago when I was attending the International Rotary Convention in Sydney, I went to Circular Quay and watched the annual Vidid light show. I loved it! I can’t believe I haven’t been back since. So I’m making a pact with myself that I will go next year with the Mathematician who has never been! In the meantime here’s a sneak preview.
Only in Australia v2!! 🐨
This week, instead of politicians, we have koalas on a cuddle-train! How cute are they?
And I thought I had a nice outdoor conservatory! 😮
My friend sent me this article and pic and I had to share!
I am known for my pride in my outdoor sunroom but this one in Finland takes the cake!!
For the love of tea 🙂 ☕️
A woman is like a tea bag – you can’t tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water….so very true! I love tea and my daughter suggested this could be our family motto 🙂
Changing lives – a post from Jon and Jo at JWalking
One of the best things about blogging is ‘meeting’ people who do amazing things and this English couple are a perfect example of how we can change our lives. I’ve been following Jonno and Jo at JWalking for ages now and love their adventurous spirit and the way they tell it like it is. They live an amazing vagabonding life and wouldn’t have it any other way. Don’t tell they’re lucky to do what they do though 🙂
This recent post tells some of their story and I’ve included the link so you can pop over and have a read at your leisure.
A flamingo joke 🙂
My friend said I looked like a flamingo….so I had to put my foot down!!
A few Christmases ago we spent time together with a huge pink flamingo – this joke reminded me of some of the happy snaps we had taken with said huge pink flamingo!!
A Road Trip rant 😦
As I prepared for a road trip north to warmer temperatures, for my daughter’s birthday tomorrow, I couldn’t help but notice that it was actually snowing in parts of Queensland – it NEVER snows in Queensland. If I wanted snow I would stay where I am – in the SNOWY MOUNTAINS of NSW!!!!! Queensland is supposed to be sunny and warm all year round – please don’t disappoint me weather gods!
We’ve had a real cold snap here, so winter is definitely showing it’s colours – plenty of white stuff around!
Wish me luck!**
It turns out I didn’t need any luck – here we are arriving in Queensland to blue sky and warm sunshine… it’s so nice 🌞Goondiwindi is a lovely town, which we’ve never visited before- highly recommend it!
We’re away from home for a few weeks so my blogging schedule may be affected somewhat – it’s called being on holidays!!
This week’s posts:
- Winners and Losers #12 – last week’s offerings
- Revisiting Iceland for #SundayStills – the theme for the week was Edge
- Time for a cuppa and a chat as we move from May to June – a monthly catchup
- Wordless Wednesday – the birthday of our youngest is approaching!
What made your winners/losers list this week? Let me know if you have any suggestions for me on books, Netflix, movies, podcasts – anything!
Any thoughts on these winners or losers?
Keep smiling and thanks for reading. Enjoy the long weekend for the Queen’s Birthday, except it’s not a public holiday in Queensland???? Let’s just say it’s a long weekend for my daughter’s birthday shall we??
**This was written before we left home. We’ve arrived and I’m happy to say it’s nice and warm – to us anyway, the locals think it’s a bit chilly!!
