Thusday and Shopping

A hotch-potch of thoughts and part of my day
I am early today. Did my usual Thursday pilgrimage to the Great Shopping centre. Went to a different Supermarket to stock up on specials. With the school holidays imminent it pays to have plenty of snacks on hand.
While looking for the frozen Burgurs, have to get frozen ones, Stephanie can't cook, and she will starve while we are away, or spend all the money on Take Away. Anyway i digress, While looking for said burgurs, I came across a couple having, what they thought, a whispered Domestic in the aisle. Something to do with her wasting "HIS" money on some kinds of food, and he would not be able to afford his Beer. She did politely remind him that kids do have to eat too, and that the money was after all "Theirs". What he said next does not bear repeating here, suffice to say that she was reduced to tears. He humiliated her in a way that no "Gentleman" would speak to anyone, let alone his wife. The discussion ended when the manager politely asked him to leave, offering to assist his leaving, by calling the Police.
Met another couple, they were an elderly twosome. He is from England, she is from Greece. We had a great conversation about both counties, and even exchanged ideas on food preparation. A most devoted pair who acted as if they were still on their honeymoon, albeit 32 years later.
Tonight i think I will prepare a fresh Lasange for dinner. Young Jeffery has been nagging me for weeks. He loves lasagne, reckon he's a lot like Garfield the cat.
It's a bit rich for me, the Tomato upsets my stomach, so I'll make do with something else. Maybe a bit of Cajun Rice.. Hmmm... I think I am getting hungry. Just noticed that Young Jeffery did not finish washing up after his after school snack. Seems Pokemon is more important.
Ashley was home from school today, she was complaining about stomach cramps. It apears that this is a common complaint, generaly every three or four weeks. I think my little girl is starting to grow up.
Isn't it strange how as a parent, we want our Kids to grow up, but when they do it's as if we have lost something, wish they were little again?
Next thing they are going out, getting engaged, married, and making clones of themselves. When one has spent many years with all thier attention focused on children it can get lonely when they grow up. I think it's time to start cultivating other interests. I am sure Juanita and I can find something to do with all the spare time.
A thought just crossed my mind about our trip. I don't drive at night, so I'll have to drive in daylight.
The problem is caused by Kangaroos. They tend to sleep in the middle of the road. It is winter her, and the 'Roos are attracted to the warmth of the tarmac, so they congregate there to keep warm. Sometimes they are hit by a Truck. Walla!! Instant Kangaroo Sushi.
One does not need to hit a Wombat either. You do not run over a Wombat, it is like hitting a wall at 80 mile an hour. You just come to a dead stop, and hope the front suspension is not kissing the back wheels.
Anyway, on that note i shall wander off and do some work preparing dinner.
So until next time gentle reader, may you Gods watch over and protect you. Remember to cherish your children. Love and Hug them, one day they will leave to discover the wide world, a journey of discovery that you cannot share.
