The Light Bulb went on and there was Music

Happy Monday, Plonkers.

Pinterest and I were visiting over the weekend, and I found some cool ideas for Teacher's Gifts for my kids.  The one I want to use is a screw-in light bulb with M & M's inside and a wee note that says "Thanx for helping to make my future bright".  I think its adorable, but I have a dilemma....

How the fek do I get the middle mechanism out of the bulb and open the back of the light bulb to get the sweeties inside?  

So, I went on The Google this morning to ask the question and find out what to do. Seems it's quite involved and is a 10 Step Process and it could be dangerous if I break some of those teeny weeny glass bits inside.  

Look, I don't think the teacher will be breaking the glass in case of emergency and eating the M & M's, but you never know.  I really don't want him to get glass shards stuck in his throat and bleed out and choke to death.  You know he has been instrumental in my child's education and development.  I'd rather avoid a bloody manslaughter case on my CV thank you very much.

So, any ideas how I can remove my finger prints from a light bulb and write on a piece of cardboard without leaving any traces of DNA?

Today is also Music Monday over at Xmas Dolly and I'm sharing some of my new playlist toons for your pleasure.  Enjoy xxx



I kinda slipped this one in for Megan who is learning to beatbox from YouTube and its pretty good. Nothing like these guys but she'll appreciate this one.

Friday, 20 November 2015 Second Favourite F Word

For Christmas this year my Brother-In-Law and our niece is coming from Australia.

We are extremely excited to be seeing them as we haven't spent time with them for 2 years.  Its been a long time and we all have so much to catch up on. It will be so festive to have a big family get together on Christmas Day, have lunch and share the day swapping stories.

However, I'm secretly jealous, as I haven't seen my folks since April this year. I can't tell you how much I miss my mum and wish I could go there for Christmas too. Our budget just doesn't allow us this year, as we have a massive school fees bill that we need to sort out for 2016.

I'll be playing the lottery hoping to win a few thousand rands so that we can have a wee beach holiday with my mum and dad....

What are you plans for Christmas?

I Swear it was Friday about 2 Minutes Ago?!

And Monday rolls around again...sneaky wee bastard!

That means its time to play some music and rock the house. 

Speaking of rocking music, I got gifted tickets to a show called Rock Royalty at The Barnyard Theater at Emperors Palace.  An extremely talented bunch of singers and musicians blasted the speakers with AC/DC, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Led Zepplin and even Tina Turner.  They had us all rocking in our seats.  My daughters were on their chairs pounding the air and playing air guitar.  It was a great family outing with a LOT of whoohooing and wiggling our bums.

A kick-arse show for Rock Lovers!  Go get your tickets and rock on! \m/

You WILL be up dancing and rockin' out.

and now back to the Theme which actually is BIG BAND here is Robbie Williams,  performing his big band swing stuff 


This is a South African Swing/Jazz Band called The Swingsetters. I discovered them over a year ago. They are a Cape Town band. Give them a listen 

Now hop on over to Xmas Dolly, sign up and share yer Big Band Toon.  Enjoy the rest of your Monday, Plonkers!

Happy Friday, Plonkers!

What do you want from Santa this year?

Have you even thought about Christmas?  or are you one of those people who plan Christmas from October?  Do you have all your Christmas shopping already done and gift wrapped?  Are you one of those that have lists for everyone and everything?  Lists of the lists?

I'm one of those people who leave Christmas until the middle of December and then go do all my shopping.  I normally only wrap Christmas gifts a few days before and I'm an impulse shopper.

However, I have made a Pinterest Christmas Wish List last year.  Not that anyone looked at it, but just in case someone wants to stumble across it and buy me a little somethin-somethin.

Have you thought about Christmas yet?

Are you one of those that plan ahead?

Are you on Santas naughty or nice list?
