Yes We Have No Bananas
We Have No Bananas Today
A quick post to say I'm still here and sorry for my absence.. and a thank you to those kind souls who have been emailing and enquiring about my whereabouts.. You'll be pleased to know I am many many miles away from the devastation caused by Cyclone Yasi as it crossed Australian shores in Far North Queensland.. 2011 is only a few weeks old yet this year our poor Queensland neighbours have suffered devastating floods, a perfect storm the size of North America [so I'm told] and now a Banana famine. Yes Cyclone Yasi made sure of that by wiping out 90% of Australia's Banana and Sugar Cane crops... So 'Yes We Have No Bananas'. Mind you the Banana and Sugar Cane thing is not going to bother me too much as they are 'No No Foods' on my 'must only eat boring no sugar no carb insulin resistance diet'! However I'm sure there will be many an Australian out there lamenting the loss of the Great Australian Banana.
So apologies for my absence.. I've had my own little mini disasters to contend with One after the other in the last few weeks, which of course in no way compares to the problems in Queensland, yet have been keeping my time fully occupied and away from my blog and away from all of your lovely blog posts!! So just like Dexter [that's what I named the little guy above].. I'm Sorry!! and hope to get back in the swing of things soon. I have been honoured of late with a few awards from terrific bloggers I'd like to acknowledge.. In fact I am so lax I have a few from last year which also need to be acknowledged .. So Dexter and I are going to waddle off.. put our noses [or beaks] to the grind stone.. sort out things this end.. and get back into the swing of blogging.
So there you have it..
No I haven't been giving you all the 'Bum's Rush'..
Just stuck in my own personal 'Bermuda Triangle of Stupid Annoying Stuff'. Seems to be a package deal with this place I moved to recently.. So I'm getting all Zen like.. downsizing and organizing and preparing for opportunity to come knocking.
By the way.. Say hello to Willy [Willy Wagtail] He IS giving you the 'Bum's Rush' and was visiting me daily until the Bermuda Triangle hit.. Although I saw him again yesterday so here's hoping things are now on the upswing. Bottom's Up!!!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend...
Full of sunshine, happiness and no disasters of any pedigree
