Wild Again!

What wild weather we've been having - bushfires, heat waves, flooding and mega-surf:


Yacht washed up on the breakwall
(actually, it smashed against the side,
then a crane lifted it up - but it looks freaky!)

Wild and woolly surf conditions for my run this morning!

Makes for fun running anyway!

But enough of that, Weathergirl! What of it being Wednesday and all???

Possibly in the realms of over-sharing and Too Much Information, I have been suffering with a lack of toilet-going in the lead-up to this morning's weigh-in. Alas, Metamucil and water have not been sufficient to unblock me, so no "bog and log" (as a Facebook friend so eloquently put it!) this morning.

I hopped on the scales and was pretty happy to see 70.4kg. Went and got my iPhone, which apparently weighs half a kilo and saw this:

70.9kg - 156.3lbs
Try as I may, the bugger would not go back to the original reading! So (sniff) I'm going with 70.9kg this week and have bowel emptying, clean eating, no drinking and the 60s and a total 10kg weight loss in my sights for next week!!!

  1. Yippee I made it. Thanks for the link up. This made me laugh out loud literally. When I went from the 100's into the 99's I was so excited and wanted to immortalize the moment and grabbed my camera ... err ... a big honking DSLR!! Oh doh. Weighed about 2kg with the lens attached. Great job on the weight, but what is it with scales not weighing the same one moment to the next. Having said that I completely forgot to weigh in this morning, I have completely got out of sync with the public hol so will be weighing in tomorrow.

I see...

We've had a couple of interesting weeks here. Video Boy has inherited his mother's shocking vision - he has myopia (commonly known as short-sightedness or near-sightedness). It occurs when the eyes focus light in front of the retina, leading to unfocussed vision.


Close up is usually OK, but distance vision is pretty fuzzy:


For me, even the couple would have been blurry! I was "medically blind" which meant I got my optometrist fees covered by Medicare (yay!).

So, Video Boy has had glasses for a couple of years now - he has broken one pair and then lost the replacement pair (grrr) and so for a couple of months, his world has looked like the picture on the right...and he was squinting to watch TV, read signs, pretty much all the time.
So, we went off to the optometrist last week to get us some new glasses!
The optometrist is up on all the latest research - with Wombat Girl, we bought a software program with special "lenses" and she had to do a practice session…

Creating order from chaos...

We have been diving headlong into an amazing rabbit trail of maths, and science and art and if I don't share with you some of these thoughts and experiences and links they will be lost forever like much of the mists swirling through my brain!


And there is SOOO much good stuff whirring through my brain that I don't know where to logically start and how to group it all so it might make some sense, so instead, I think I will just let you follow our story - our rabbit trail that led to so much good stuff...and maybe, you will like some of it too!

After viewing Vi Hart's diatribe on parabolas, the kids were keen to actually graph some parabolas. But before we actually got to that, Hubby wanted see the video, so we watched it again, and that led us to reviewing the ones on spirals and fibonacci:



As we were watching, Video Boy grabbed the graph paper (because you always have spare graph paper lying around, don't you?) and started experimenting with the fibonacci spirals shown…

52 Ancestors - So Far Away

This week's #52ancestorsin52weeks is Father's Day - but of course, it's not Father's Day in Australia, so I'm going to do the theme we had a couple of weeks ago when I was away - So Far Away.

When you first start doing your family tree, it's exciting to see how "far back" you can go with your branches. Until last weekend, the furthest back on my direct line was Benjamin Broome, my 9th great-grandfather born in 1646 in Kidderminster, Worcestershire, England (grandfather of John Broom in my carpet story), which I thought was a long way back!

Last weekend, I was searching back to see if I could see a link between the Freemans on my Dad's side and the Freemans on my Mum's side (spoiler alert - not yet). Anyway, I was having a search on Joseph Freeman (my 5th great-grandfather born in Gloucestershire, England in 1765) and his wife - Sarah Arkell (my 5th great-grandmother also from Gloucestershire, England, born in 1767). Well, I had her father John…
