The Dutch make it look so easy and effortless!

Tim found this video while playing with Stumbleupon (I think he is addicted to the site ;o) It is pretty cool really, having cycled in Utrecht it brings back some really good memories.  They are so geared up there for cycling and I always thought it was amazing that they have their own traffic lights!

Nature is even more weirder than I am!

Posted on May 25, 2010 by sonjabarrie

How weird is this then?  You've all seen Transformers, if not the movie you must have seen the toys at some point but this owl really is a transformer.  An octopus can change color but it can't really change its shape, this bird is amazing in how it changes itself based on the threat. The […]

The results are in and it’s not all in my head!

Posted on May 20, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well, not exactly anyway.  I'm sure there's a lot rattling around in there that a lot of people have questioned over the years but this at least is real, and I can prove it ;o) The results from the MRI are in and although it's not the best of news it's not that bad either, […]

Another MRI with dye

Posted on May 17, 2010 by sonjabarrie

You know after everything I have gone through over the last 2+ years with my back you would think they could have sorted it out by now. I should be so lucky. Where's Dr Crusher when you need her or even the holo Doc? at least he knows how to put Borg nanobots to good […]

Whale Watching

Posted on May 14, 2010 by sonjabarrie

I love sailing, we've done a lot of it over the years, the trouble is sailing doesn't like me!  We once spent 2 weeks on a sailing course in the Mediterranean and the skipper told me that sea sickness usually goes away after 3 days max.  I threw up everyday for the whole 2 weeks!  […]

A Day At Disney

Posted on May 14, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well Tuesday was spent recuperating and Lauren being 7 recuperated very quickly.  7 year olds have an amazing capacity for bouncing back and then it's all about how to keep them entertained. There is a park at the end of our road that has a playing field, swings, slide and sand so by Tuesday afternoon […]

The Joys of Disney, NOT!

Posted on May 11, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Rosanne, Michael and Lauren spent yesterday at Disney and had loads of fun, they were scheduled to stay 2 nights at the Disney hotel and I was supposed to meet them today to spend Laurens birthday with her at the Disneyland park. All sounds great in theory until something comes along to throw a spanner […]

Quilts, Quilts, Quilts

Posted on May 10, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well It is Laurens birthday tomorrow and as they are spending today at Disneyland I know they won't be reading this blog so I can now release pictures of the quilt I have made for them. This first quilt for Lauren was the one I mostly finished at the retreat.  Here you can see the […]

Happy Mothers Day!

Posted on May 09, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well, I have had a wonderful Mothers Day. My daughter Rosanne arrived yesterday with her husband Michael and best of all (sorry Rosanne and Michael) they brought my granddaughter Lauren. Yippee! This morning we went to the park and then walked over the hill to Starbucks for a hot chocolate. That was fun till Lauren […]

Utah Snows!

Posted on May 05, 2010 by sonjabarrie

Well I'd like to say Utah blows or Utah sucks but I can't as I actually like Utah.  It does however snow! Last week I had the dubious honor of flying to Utah in order to get all the sprinklers running at the rental houses.  I had booked the flight a week before based on […]
