I can't believe it's not Gardening Australia...

So I was sitting here thinking, *what can I call my blog?* (It was quite a short conversation in my head. The rest of the time I was singing *lalalalalala*). It took a while, considering the song (you know, the Smurfs lala one) just wouldn't go away, but then it came to me! Aphids and Mealie Bugs!

Does anyone even know Alan Seale (? I think that's his name) from Gardening Australia? He has this whistle when he says *s* and the phrase *aphids and mealie bugs* has been a long time gag between me and my sisters.

So what has this got to do with anything???

Well, I have this daughter. A perfect little specimen really. (That's not to say that my boys aren't perfect. In fact one is [self proclaimed] gorgeous and the other is [once again self proclaimed] a cutie). Well in her long life (5 months) she has been known as Mealie Bug.

Ahh - you're starting to catch the train of thought?!

So, while you will catch VERY LITTLE gardening tips here, you will find an awful lot of Mealie Bug Love, (I guess that makes the boys the Aphids??) and a dash (maybe more) of my insatiable sewing appetite.

I second that! Blogging has been one of my great joys and guilty time-wasting pleasures for two years now. Cheaper than therapy too, as they say!

I miss The Switch, I miss church and I miss all of you guys! Blogging keeps me connected.
