Friday Feature on Deb’s World
Winners & Losers #14
Welcome to Week 14 of my Friday roundup – yes that’s right, I’ve been doing these weekly posts for 14 weeks now! I can’t quite believe that. This is where I share some of the good, the bad and the ugly ‘stuff’ I’ve taken note of during the week. I really enjoy sharing this collection of bits and pieces with you all, and I 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. If you’re a blogger, 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 up our family perfectly! My daughter, who we’re currently visiting, has this quote on her windowsill (I bought it for her years ago) and she said it just helps to explain everything. Especially to those who haven’t met us yet – I choose to take that as a compliment 🙂
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!
Spinning round and round 😱
An elderly hiker had to be rescued and ended up being dizzier than they expected. I feel sick just watching this! Thankfully the rescue went well apart from the spinning round and round
Only in Australia v3!! 🦘😮
Last week it was a koala cuddle-train, this week it’s kangaroos….
Just a friendly reminder 🙃
Not that I’m the grammar police or anything! You’re welcome.
Are you a couch potato? 😂
This made me laugh 😂
A couch potato is someone who spends most of their time watching television and does not exercise or have any interesting hobbies. Source
The flamingo continues on 🙂 😀
In response to last week’s flamingo joke and photo, my friend Jo, left this funny comment:
I laughed at your flamingos. There’s a retired living community up here whose ad on the back of a bus has a lady in pink swimmers & a pink daisy swimming cap on a flamingo in the pool.
The tagline is ‘We’re more flamingo than bingo.’Jo Tracey
Great sporting news x2 🎾 👏
In case you missed the news earlier in the week, 23 year old Australian Ash Barty won the Women’s singles trophy at the French Open. This article is well worth a read. She showed tenacity, resilience and a dedicated work ethic to get to where she is, and some other Australian tennis players could take a leaf out of her book. Well done!
Australian Dylan Alcott also won the first French Open Quad Wheelchair Men’s Singles title in a 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 victory over American David Wagner — his 7th Grand Slam title in four years. What a star!
Queen’s Birthday celebrations around the world 👑
Just in case you were wondering when the Queen’s birthday was celebrated around the world, here’s a useful graphic!
And my daughter’s birthday was very special too
It’s not very often, in recent years, that we’ve been able to spend time with our youngest on her birthday, so it was great to celebrate with her this year. I also made her a special birthday book covering her 31 years with special words from family and friends. She loved it!
A birds-eye view of Tumbarumba 📷 🌏
I know some of you just love the name of my home town Tumbarumba – so when I saw this amazing drone photo pop up in my Instagram feed this week, I just had to share it with you. It’s a photo from high above – Tumbarumba! How cool is it?
Away from home
We’re still away from home, and while I’m trying to stay up to date with my blogging schedule, and reading other blogs, I can’t make any promises! We’re doing lots of walking, bike riding and enjoying the warmth of Brisbane. Here’s a sneak peak of one of my pics from our 30km+ ride yesterday 🙂
I also caught up with one of my favourite bloggers Sue from sizzling Towards 60 and Beyond – how happy do we both look??
This week’s posts:
- Winners and Losers #13 – last week’s offerings
- #SundayStills – with the theme Unusual
- Wordless Wednesday – a few road trip pics
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? I think it’s been a bumper week!!
