House/Dog Sitting with Leo

Hello everyone some how I forgot to do a post yesterday don't know why just did, this week I am at my brothers place house/dog sitting while they are in Queensland for his wife's brothers wedding.

Since I have Leo Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday nights he is house/dog sitting with me and he is loving it, playing with the dogs and helping me take care of them he is helping me feed the fish (under supervision) also he fed the dogs last night for me. He understands that there are things he cannot touch because they don't belong to us and that he can't go into Kayla's room.

I am only at Dave's during the night since I have to take Leo to and get him from school each day after taking him to school I am coming home here after I drop him off and going back after I get Leo after school.

Blain has his first orientation day at the high school, I have to pick him up at 10.45am and drop him back at his primary school he goes for three Tuesdays this month, never did anything like that when I started high school or when my girls started high school.

Ok been and picked up Blain I was 15 minutes late, as I was given the wrong time should have been there at 10.30am. After I dropped him at school I went to my doctors appointment only to find I had the time wrong it was at 12.30 not 11.30 so changed it to next Tuesday at 9.30 which is much better for me. I can go straight after I drop Leo off at school.

I have baked some brownies this morning to take with me out to Dave's as Leo was complaining there was nothing there he liked to eat and the food tastes better at nanna's house, I made him a toasted ham and cheese sandwich last night, which he ate but said my sandwich maker is better.

Now I don't mind dog sitting but like many people I prefer my own bed, Dave's is too low and too soft and seems to be on a slant making me feel like I am going to fall out of bed and of course with my bad knee I can't get comfortable.

Leo woke up at 1am and came and woke me up as he couldn't sleep, I gave him an extra half of Catapress and even though he said he didn't get back to sleep I know he did, he does have a lot of trouble sleeping though.

Tomorrow I should find time to read some blogs today I just don't feel like I have the time and since I am here during the day I am not taking my laptop to Dave's with me.

Bad Omens or not

Well here we are on Saturday morning, I started this post yesterday Friday the 13th but then Jessica turned up to get Leo and by the time they left I had forgotten about the post, so here I am finishing it this morning.

Friday the 13th is considered by some to be unlucky and by some to be lucky, for me it is just another day but I thought I would share my thoughts about some of the things that are supposed to be bring one bad luck. Well only 5 things because it is Friday or Saturday.

Broken mirrors: Yeah they will bring you 7 seconds or 7 minutes of pain if you are unlucky to cut
your self while cleaning it up.

Ladders : Yes these can be unlucky if while walking under the ladder someone on the ladder
dropped something on you.

Spilling salt: They say if you spill salt you should toss a pinch over it put let us be honest here it is
only bad luck if you spill salt when applying salt to something and the lid comes off
and a heap falls out.

Opening an umbrella indoors: Yeah this can be bad luck if when you open it and hit something
breaking it or if you poke someone in the body or eye when opening
it.

Black cats: They say that you are doomed if a black cats crosses your path but lets be honest it
really is only bad luck if you fall over the damn cat or it runs in front of your car you hit
the brakes and swerve and run into a tree.

Seeking Attention

Well hello everyone here we are on a bloody warm Wednesday afternoon I had planned to tell you all about what the doctor said but for the second day in a row he cancelled on me, my doctor is sick. I said to mum that we usually don't think about doctors getting sick but because they are human I guess they too get sick and need a day or two off work.

So instead I am going to talk a little about something my eldest daughter said to me a couple of months back, she told me that I am an attention seeker, when she said that I was what the hell. However, thinking about it she may be right, now I think we all have moments when we seek attention from time to time but she said I do it a lot, maybe I do but it isn't something I am aware of doing.

I don't knowingly play the victim but maybe at times I do, I know one of my sisters often comes across as playing the victim and I am a lot like said sister so maybe I do it too. I think this is something other people are better at noticing rarely do those who seek attention or play the victim realise they are doing so.

Are there people you know or who are in your family or life that you think are attention seekers or who play the victim?

Do you think they know they are an attention seeker or a victim player?

It's Did You Know Monday

Ok here we are at Monday, so here are some did you know facts...........

Dr Seuss coined the word “nerd” in his 1950 book “If I Ran The Zoo”

The name Kodak was invented by George Eastman and it means, nothing, yep nothing, when he was looking for a good name brand a friend told him that the letter K was easy too remember and that five letters in a name was a good length, so he took that advice...............

Some believe the word “tip” stands for “ to insure promptness”

In most advertisements, including newspapers, the time displayed on a watch is 10:10, so the watch looks as it is smiling............


The sentence “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” uses every letter in the English language...................

Is it stress

Hello everyone, it is Thursday here and I have had a somewhat busy week with appointments and shopping.

Yesterday I went to see the movements disorder doctor over at the Royal (hospital) and came away thinking what a waste of time.

He told me he thinks it is a functional tremor and caused by stress because we all know when they don't have a bloody idea what the cause is it must be stress. He thinks I need to see a Psychologist to explore that side of things.

So really I just need to learn how to cope with it and he doesn't think it will get worse even though since it started it has got worse and has gone from one hand to both hands and one leg.

He also said that he can see that for me the tremor is real, yeah of course it is real I am not imagining this damn thing, what a stupid thing to say.

So how do I feel, frustrated and somewhat depressed, doesn't help that my leg has been bad and I feel like I can't do a damn thing.

I am still exercising each day and I was told that was a good thing, derrrr of course it is a good thing.

Kathy has told me that the following things cause me stress and yes she is right but really these things are just part of life:

Getting Leo to and from school, Having Leo three nights a week,

Worrying about Tasha's life and her practically ignoring her family,

Worrying about Blain and how he is dealing with the problems between his parents,

Being overweight and feeling I have no way of losing it,

Having Tim tell me he wants to go on better longer holidays and thinking we can't because I can't walk very well.

Am I wrong are these things just part of life or not.

My break away

Well as you all should know I have been away for a few days at Stockton caravan park where I had sucky internet, which is where I started writing this.

Stockton is only 30 minutes drive from home and it was a nice park and I had a good time, even though I forgot to pack warm pants.


On Wednesday night Tim and I went for tea at the bowling club, Tim of course complained about the cost of the meals. I got a flake cheesecake to go and that was so nice.

Tim now wants to sell the caravan, because it is too small, doesn't have air con and we don't use it as much as he thought we would, all reasons I gave when I wasn't sure about getting a caravan.......

On Thursday morning while he was fishing he caught a baby shark and it made his day, he was so happy about catching it, he took photos and posted them to Facebook, although he said he would have been happier if Blain & Leo had been with him.

Later on while Leo, Sydney-May & Summer were here Tim caught a Shovel Nose Ray or a Shovel Nose Guitarfish which he was thrilled about as were the kids, not just ours but many kids who saw it on the ground near the van, lots of people came to have a look at it.

Friday saw us up at 7am and packed up and leaving by 8.30am, when we got to mum & dad's there was a small white car parked across the road and Tim had to go in search of the owner to have it moved so he could reverse the caravan down the driveway.

We arrived home here by around 11am and had a house full of people till around 3pm, four grandchildren, the neighbours granddaughter, two daughters and one niece so the house was loud and full. It was nice when they all left and the house was quiet.


Today it will be just me and Leo for most of the day, although Kathy and the girls will be here later, she is bringing my grocery shopping over and will vacuum out for me while she is here. Tim is at work today.
