Flap Jacks

with Sleeping Hybiscus

A lovely Basket of Flowers for today….The Red ones hanging down are Sleeping Hibiscus, they do not open any more than they are on the photo, therefore called Sleeping but are very pretty and can grow into a nice hedge.  Geraldton Wax and Yellow Lantana with the Brown coloured leaves make a beautiful display. 

How about a Recipe:

Here we have one for Flap Jacks, the children will love them, they can be cut into squares and used for Afternoon Tea.

Ingredients:   6oz. Butter or Margarine: 6oz – Demerara Sugar; 8oz Rolled Oats; pinch of salt.

Method:      Cream the  Butter until soft.  Mix together Sugar, Oats & Salt then Stir into the Butter.  Transfer the mixture to greased tin 9″ by 12″ spread evenly.  Bake for 30mins.  at Reg. 5. (about 180deg Cel) When cooked leave for a few minutes in the tin, then cut into squares or fingers.

What about a Poem then ?

It is called –  * I Just Remembered *

I just remembered, did I forget to do that

or – did I do it and forget that I did it?

I forget now but if I do it now and

 I have already done it, that means that I

would have done it twice.

Best if I don’t  do it now.

 I may not have done it at all

if I didn’t do it in the first place.

What a dilemma, why did I just think that

I hadn’t done it, then think that maybe I had.

Well I remember thinking that I should

but I wonder if I did.

  The best thing is to go and look I suppose –

– now what was it that I think I forgot to do.

I can’t remember now, best to have a Cuppa

and think about it later.

Maybe you can relate to the poem……as we get older it is sometimes a problem to remember where we have put things in that special place – the place where we thought we would remember that we had put them.  Eventually they will be in a special place just to surprise us – when we do find them.   !!!

Someone Special ?

Flowers in Hanging Basket.


Here is a verse from one of my Poems.

I just thought it would be nice to share it today.


A Poem is a good way to remember or to think of family or friends who may have moved away from us for various reasons. And only we know that in our hearts we miss them still.

Sometimes we cannot talk to others about what we feel and forget that our friends and people we meet in the street have feelings too.  But they as well probably keep their thoughts close in their hearts not able to speak out about their own feelings.

So here we are: – just think of that special someone that you miss and relive in your mind some of the good times and things that you did together.

 They may have been very special.


There is an awakening in my heart to-day,

I feel that you are not far away.

But I cannot see you anymore

although your memory lingers on

and in my heart you are here to stay.



Have a Lovely day relishing some good memories.


God Bless You Today.

Christmas – Time to Remember

Christmas is a time to Remember why we celebrate –

The Birth of Jesus.


Matthew: Chapter 1 verse 18.

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about:

His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph but before they came together,

she was found to be with child through

The Holy Spirit.


Mary must have been a beautiful young woman spiritually to be so obedient to God saying yes to what He asked of her.  How many of us can truly say that we are obedient to submit ourselves to the ways of The LORD?

Dear LORD God I pray today that I may be more obedient to your voice and not to my own wants.  In being obedient to you I know  that you will be blessing me even more than I can ever imagine.

Thank you for Mary the Mother of my Saviour –

 –  Jesus Christ my Lord.  Amen.
