Mr Bagel is Back

Yes its true, despite a spectacular absence of blogging for over two months, Mr Bagel has returned.
Mr Bagel has been 'moving' from a remote country location to a more civilised part of Australia.

Moving has required Mr Bagel to do five seperate trips of over 2,000kms each, despite selling what we thought was almost all of our worldly possesions, we still had to do five trips to move our 'personal belongings'. Which raises one very valid point, how personal can 5 trailers worth of belongings be? Do you think Mr Bagel might just be a horder? mmm?

Anyway after selling all our furniture we have been rushing around buying beds and fridges and lounges and just about everything else required to life a civilised life. Now that Mr Bagel has moved to civilisation he has decided to stop talking to the soccer ball with a wig. (Tom Hanks.)

We've only been in town a week but, living where there are shops, and services is such a refreshing break from living hours away from the most basic shopping. Its taking some adjustment, I generally spoke to about 3 peaople a month where I lived, now I see hundreds a day.

Mr Bagel: Thank you to all the well wishers and the emails I received

Through The Stormy Clouds

A Guest Post By Mrs Bagel

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been really busy working over the last couple of weeks. Part of my work included driving 2 hours on Sunday to deliver a package. Considering once I would get there it would take 10 minutes to drop off the package, I deciding to take the whole family - we don't go on day trips very often.

It ended up being a really nice trip, the girls were so well behaved in the back seat for 2 hours and I dropped off the package with no problems at all - I didn't even get lost! Earlier on Sunday we had visitors and we didn't get to leave for our trip until 2pm, so we arrived to drop off the package at about 4 pm. At 4pm on a Sunday afternoon there are no shops open or anything like that, so we decided to take the girls down to the forshore to have a look at the boats.

The sun was setting and looked so pretty shimmering on the water, the breeze was getting colder and stronger by the minute, but I did manage to get out of the warm car and take some photos which I have posted some of today and will post a few more over the next couple of days. Enjoy!

.... Just another day ....

The 14th edition of JPix is Up!

The 14th edition of JPix!

This stunning photo is from Muse at Me~ander...

Rafi G from Life in Israel has been gracious enough to do this Fortnights JPix.

JPix is looking for people willing to host the upcoming editions. It runs every fortnight and usually is posted on a Wednesday/Thursday, but due to Rafi being away it was agreed to extend this edition to Friday.

Don't foget your best chance of getting into JPix is submit your posts, it's simply too time consuming to expect every hoster to search hundreds of blogs to find photos, so if you missed out recently, get upset with.. yourself.

Now that people know they have to submit to have a good chance to be in JPix the work load is a lot easier.

For those that are willing to give hosting JPix a go, (thanks Rafi G for your offer to host JPix 14 this time) I would still encourage you to go scouting for 'new talent' but in essence, the regulars have been whipped into shape and most of the work is basically already done.

Now knowing this, who is going to host next fortnights JPix15? If you miss out, JPix 16 and Jpix 17 are still available as well. Leave a comment or email Mr Bagel to let me know.

Any way enough of the official stuff, now for the fun jump over to Life in Israel and check out Rafi G's 14th edition of JPix!



JPix 14! Last call for Submissions
..Hurry! Last Chance!

JPix 14 is going to be posted shortly at
Life in Israel

Rafi G always puts together a great JPix, make sure you submit your photos to JPix 14. If you haven't already submitted any photo posts to Jpix then you really do need to quickly submit them Submissions for JPix 14.

Its going to be the fourteenth edition of JPix hosted by Rafi G at Life In Israel , its sure to be a great edition so make sure you get your photos in. Don't rely on the Jpix hoster finding them. If you don't submit your photos and you miss out, well you know who to blame.
