A rainy Sunday

Rainy Sunda

Well it is now Sunday at my house again, this Sunday we had a mince stew for tea, I asked the girls what they would like for lunch and Kathy & Jessica said a chunky beef casserole but I felt like a mince stew. My mince has veggies, tin potatoes and about 2 cups of frozen veggies with bacon and 2 minute noodles it is nice and thick and I like it I add cream of chicken soup mix as well as beef stock.

After lunch it started to rain so I went out to get the clothes off the line before they got too wet and threw them into the dryer to finish off. It was a nice heavy down pour with hail about 1cm in size, it didn’t last too long and all the girls and Blain & Leo had to go out the back to watch the rain and hail.

Kathy and Summer just left and I just told Jess and Tasha that I don’t want them to stay all afternoon, Jessica also asked if next week I will do the casserole she wants but I may tell them I will not be having lunch next weekend but we will see I am not sure about next Sunday I will decide next Friday if I am going to have lunch or not.

Both boys had ice cream after lunch and even though she didn’t ask for any I gave Summer ice cream as well all had cones and and I can tell you Summer made a right mess out of herself but I think she liked it and I only gave her a tiny bit of ice cream. Kathy when she notice says “mother you gave her ice cream”. I just had both boys ask me for another lot of ice cream and I was good I told them they had to ask their mothers first which they did and now they both have bowls of ice cream.

Tim has Natasha trying to help him figure out how to draw on photos on his phone, this is not something I know anything about so I am glad that he can ask the girls, Natasha just gave up and tossed the phone to Jessica to have a look at it, they are in fact tossing his phone back and forth trying to figure it out for him.

Have to say it has become a lot cooler then it was when I got up this morning I am thinking I might have to go and find a pair of long pants to wear as my legs are getting cold. Tim wants us to go down to Coles also which I will suggest we do soon as I really just want to spend the rest of the day doing nothing much at all.

Hey Hey it’s Saturday……………Kelli-Jayne

Kelli family

Hey hey it’s Saturday, I am sure everyone noticed I didn’t do 5 things Friday yesterday, why well because by the time I got home at the end of the day I was exhausted and my brain just wanted to rest like my body so you all go nothing.

However, it is a new day and I am up dressed and ready for the day although I did sleep in till 9.30am don’t do that very often but what the hell it’s Saturday and I don’t have to go out so why not be able to sleep in.

So what am I going to write about today, well it is my niece Kelli’s birthday today she is 21 today what the hell why did I not remember that yesterday when I got her present, for some reason yesterday I was thinking she would be 20 today but not she will be 21.

This I know because she was born on Monday the 14th March 1994 at John Hunter Hospital in Lambton, in the great state of New South Wales at 14.43pm by Caesarean Section she was 6lb 15 oz’s or 3160 grams in weight and was 48 cms long or 18 inches. Her name is in fact Kelli-Jayne jut saying 

Kelli is a Pisces this means she is compassionate, devoted, accepting and imaginative but she can also be indecisive, over-sensitive with moments of feeling lazy and when really sad can be drawn to self-pitying according to a web search I did on Pisces. The site I went to was this one: http://zodiac-signs-astrology.com/zodiac-signs/pisces.htm

Moving away from the technical stuff to me Kelli is a loving and wonderful, caring person and mother, she is the mother of Daemon and step-mother figure of Blain and she loves her boys as she calls them like any mother would.

I formed a bond with Kelli when her and Daemon lived her for 9 months, although it was difficult to get her to come her she wasn’t sure she would like it here and I had to talk her into coming but after a while this became home and she felt relaxed and comfortable here, well I think she did.

Kelli is one of those women who was born to be a mother, just saying. She is the youngest daughter of my sister Sue and her first husband Rex. I refer to Kelli as my sweetheart all my girls have a name I call them starting with Sandy who is my baby girl, Kathy who is my precious first born, Natasha who is my darling daughter and Jessica who is my special girl.

I hope Kelli has a wonderful 21st birthday………………Aunty Mum loves you Sweetheart……….

Motivation Thursday………….Being a woman

Being A Woman

For so many people the above will ring true, but why……….

I feel that in many cases a woman is her own worst enemy, I know I am.

I have had many times when I have thought I have failed my child or children in some way, but they don’t think so. So why do I?

This is a question I cannot answer, I don’t know the answer.

I know I do my best for my family and I always try to be there when they need me and step up when asked to help but there are times when I have to say no I can’t help I have other plans and usually when I do this I will get but can’t you change your plans, I really need you mum do you have to do such and such can’t it wait and me being me will often give in and change my plans but if I can’t I get “fine don’t help me then” this upsets me and makes me feel like I am failing.

I know that I am no but I can’t seem to change how I feel and I will become depressed and sad and sometimes I will even cry because I feel so bad. Even when the daughter in question tells me she didn’t mean it and she understands I am busy it doesn’t help I still feel terrible.

Also who do we say a woman has to think like a man, what the hell is wrong with the way a woman thinks…………nothing if you ask me

Many women feel it is wrong to age and have grey hair and some lines or even wrinkles on their body it is not it is natural.

As for working like a horse well yeah all women do that if we are married and have a job we usually end up still being the one doing 90% of the housework because men don’t and even often if we have a man who is willing to do some of it we will complain they have not done it “right” as in our way as if our way is always the right way. We hate it when a man acts like his way has to be the “right” way but in fact many women when it comes to household chores feel that their way is the “right” way.

Tuesdays Crap

It's Tuesday

What a day I have had, started out with Leo wrapping his arms around me at the school and not wanting me to leave him this morning, his teacher pride him off me and I quickly left, at least he wasn’t crying out for me as I left this morning.

Ok that wasn’t the start of the day, the start was when I got up and went to the kitchen to take my injection and when I opened the fridge the light didn’t come on so I go and check the circuit breaker and it had been tripped and I flicked it back up and what happened if flicked off straight away. So I rang the Dept. oh Housing maintenance line and said we had no power in the kitchen. While I was at the school someone came to check it out, thankfully Tim was home he is one afternoons this week. When I asked Tim what was wrong he said the guy said it was the kettle or microwave that tripped it and I said not possible as they were not even plugged in so that wasn’t the cause. Oh well we still have power in the kitchen so all good.

Then when I get home Tim says he wants to go and do some shopping to stock up oh stuff, so we did that spent around $190, Tim likes to do this a couple of times a year and I am ok with it as well.

Being Tuesday night we have Blain here for the night, so it is just me and Blain as Tim is at work but Blain is a good boy and no problem while he is here. Although he does have a habit of staying up super late, as I go to bed early and he will just sit up watching telly and I will not be surprised if he is still awake when Tim gets home at around 11pm tonight. He knows he is suppose to go to be at around 8.30-9pm but since no one is up to tell him to go to bed he just stays up till he is tired.

He also has a lot of ice cream when he is here, but he also eats his dinner without complaint so I don’t worry about how much ice cream he has.

As I type this Dr Oz is on and you know what he talks a lot of rubbish, like Dr Phil some of what he says makes sense and sounds like good advice but some of what he says if crap.

I know that being overweight is not good for a person but if a person is happy with who they are and they are for the most part healthy stop going on about a persons weight. Just saying it annoys the crap out of me, maybe because I am a short fat woman.

Sunday at my place

Sunday 1

Hello world, it is Sunday afternoon at Jo-Anne’s place, today I had Natasha and Jessica with Blain and Leo here for lunch, Blain was a surprise as he is usually at his fathers place on the weekends but last night he stayed at Jessica’s so she brought him to lunch and Natasha was pleased to see her son. Lunch wasn’t much just did chicken tenders not home made Ingham’s chicken tenders with bacon and potato bake. Leo

Now I wish they would leave as Jessica is being annoying, calling out mum every few minutes for no reason just to be annoying. After lunch the boys had ice cream cones, 2 cones in fact and I ad apple crumble with custard.

I have also done 2 loads of washing and changed the sheets on the bed and of course vacuum the house, I want to write a few letters this afternoon after I have read some blogs I will not be reading a lot of blogs as I have other things I want to do this afternoon.

In other news yesterday I bought Leo another pair of school shoes, in fact this will be the third pair of shoes he will have had this year and school has only been back 2 months yes 2 months and he gone through 2 pairs of shoes, the latest pair I bought are a better quality so I am hoping they last longer then a few weeks.

Oh yeah on Friday night Jessica and Leo called in to eat Macca’s before it went cold and have to tell you I was so tired that at around 7.30pm I went to bed and left Tim, Jessica and Leo up well Leo didn’t want to leave so Tim gave in and let him stay the night, this would have been ok if Leo had settled down and went to bed at a reasonable time but of course he didn’t and he was up half the night. I do mean half the night at 12.30am I gave him a second dose of his medication, which Jessica told me I shouldn’t had done but he was so active that I had to do something.

Anyway as I was saying he was up half the night and got into the junk food and made a right mess of the house. Also before I went to bed I had to clean up the mess he made by stabbing Tim’s cast of wine with a pair of scissors the was wine all over the floor a full 4 litre cast was spilled all over the floor this is the second time he as done that to a cast of wine and have to say both Tim and I were mad.

Tim of course went to bed and went to sleep so it was me who had to get up to Leo during the night all Tim did was say turn the light out over and over again, oh at one point he said if you don’t settle down Leo I am going to ring Aunty Tasha and then of course he fell back to sleep and so it was me who was mostly awake trying to make sure Leo didn’t try to go outside the house.

I will be glad when the girls and the boys leave and the house is quiet again……………..

Motivation Thursday…………..good in things

Good  in everthing

When a situation arrives do you see the good in it or the bad, are you one who sees the glass half full or half empty?

I think if we can go throughout our lives seeing the good in things we will be happier, yes I know it isn’t always easy and there are some things that really there is no good in but over all if we try to see the good in things we will be happier.

Seeing the negative, encases us in cloud of negativity and that makes us sad, and when we are sad we can’t see the positive so it is a vicious circle and too many people find them selves trapped in said circle.

I feel there are times when we have to take a deep breathe and centre ourselves and look for the good. It may not be easy but it will be worth it, in the long run.
