Sensible, Responsible and Reliable That Is Me……………….Is That You Too………

Ok what do I want to talk about today, let me think for a moment and I will go with how sometimes it sucks to be the oldest child………… the oldest child it often seems to me that I am thought of as being sensible and responsible and reliable and what is even suckier is that I am all those things. If I act in a way that is not sensible or responsible then everyone things something is wrong with me it is as if I am not allow to just kick back and be silly…………I know that this is my own doing since I have been both sensible and responsible along with reliable ever since I was a teenager like from around the age of 14.

I remember when I was around the age of 14 I started cooking tea while my mum was at work I would have it all ready by the time she got home so that we could just sit down and eat and mum didn’t have to do anything. Also from about the same age my dad would give me mum to take my sisters shoppping for Mother’s Day, Christmas & Birthday Presents for mum and of course when my youngest sister and brother were born I would also take them shopping with me to get mums presents too so I was 16 and I would take 3 sisters and my brother with me to do the present shopping.

Now I am 49yrs old and I am stil the one who makes sure my siblings have presents for my parents well when I say siblings I mean sisters since my brother and his wife manage on their own to get presents.4

So here is my question do you ever think you are to sensible or to reliable do you think you have become set in a role in your family or maybe you are the one that everyone things can’t manage on their own or is the one most likely to mess up some how………….and if that is the case are those thoughts only thought of by you…………………..

My sister Sue thinks that about herself she always puts herself down and belives that she is the black sheep of the family when in fact she is the only one who thinks that……………..however I do not think I am the only one to think I am sensible and responsible and reliable I beleive all my siblings and other family members think about me in the same way…………….Image


Introducing Myself or My First Post

For all of you who have never heard of me I am Jo-Anne and this is my first post here at WordPress but I do have another blog over here: but thought for no particular reason that I would start another blog here since both blogs have a similar name those who already know me from over at Blogspot should realise who this is.

So who am I well I am a mother and a grandmother, I come from a close knit family and talk about them in my blogs a lot. I would like to think I am witty and funny but in truth I am not but in my I can pretend I am can’t I…………………lol

I am Australian I love Australia, I have been married to the love of my life for going on 28yrs we have 3 wonderful, beautiful daughters and 2 gorgeous grandsons and 1 gorgeous granddaughter with another grandchild on the way.

I do have a habit of rambling on a bit in my posts and in my comments, I don’t swear unless you consider words like “bloody hell” swearing which I do not as I say/use those words a lot in my comments and posts……………

So kick off this blog I am asking everyone who reads this do you come from a close knit family?
How often do you see your family? Do you like your family? How important do you think family is?
