A Cheerful Tuesday List

1. Firstly, it’s a Cheerful Tuesday List because it’s a short list.

Meaning not long. Meaning you won’t do much reading. Meaning you’ll be wearing a smile by the end of reading this not long list.

2. It’s my two weeks and one day Tradie Anniversary.

This being the anniversary of my tradie knighting ceremony which occurred two weeks and one day ago. I now go by the title ‘Astoundingly Excellent Apprentice Tradie’.

The Boss is officially stuck with me, poor fellow.

3. I’m still in the land of Cow Pats and Nostril Obsessed Flies.

And by jove, it’s almost enough incentive to quit my day job as ‘Astoundingly Excellent Apprentice Tradie’. It’s hard to convey in writing the complexity of my relationship with Nostril Obsessed Flies, but I shall try.

We. Are. Not. Friends.

As we speak, I’m currently inventing a nostril obsessed fly trap. I call it, The Nostril Obsessed Fly Trap, and with this trapper, I will trap all those flies who’ve almost made me quit my day job, and once caught I will ship them off to Timbucktoo.

(The Nostril Obsessed Fly Trap is coming to a town near you…)

4. It’s EXACTLY one week till Christmas!

Have you got your tree up?
Have you finished your Christmas shopping?
Have you ticked everyone off your list?
Am I the only one NOT ready yet????!!!!!!


By the way, Merry Christmas.

5. Tis the season for gorging on watermelon.

So gorge on watermelon!

Unless of course you live in the Arctic and watermelon’s a bit hard to get your hands on. Or if you live in the northern hemisphere and watermelon, in general, is hard to get your hands on. Thus depriving you of the ability to gorge.

But. If you live where the sun shines and people celebrate Christmas Day with a BBQ, then GORGE AWAY!!

Ahhh, yes… The kid in the photo IS eating a big slice of watermelon. Just in case you didn’t get that, or missed it, or got distracted by my overuse of the word ‘gorge’.

Just thought I’d clear that up.

Right. So. That’s it. Cheerful Tuesday’s list is done. Finished, executed and over with. I take my bow and head for the exit.

And by the way, Merry Christmas!


Just in case you miss it.
