A sore foot on Photo Wednesday

Hi everyone after a couple of cool wet days it has been dry and hot again, had to turn the air con on again this afternoon, went to my aqua class this morning and I have no idea what I did but I some how hurt my left foot, the top of the foot is hurting a lot.

This morning while working out I noticed the leg of my swimsuit was loose like the elastic has snapped, so on Friday I will have a look for a new swimsuit. I still have the gift card my sister gave me for Christmas, so I will use that.

On Monday I noticed that my Uncle has put his house (my late grandparents house) on the market, this is the house my grandfather built and many people in the family are upset about him selling it but there is nothing we can do about that.

A because it is Wednesday I will leave you with this photo

Did you know No:6

Well hello everyone this cool and wet Monday afternoon been a busy morning with my aqua class followed by going to the shops for bread, tobacco and wine then before I knew it, it was time to go get Leo from school.

When I got home I notice that my sister had tagged me in a Facebook post and when I check it out this is what I saw.

Nap

Anyway it is Monday so that means it is Did you know Monday……………..so did you know

The pumpkin has been known to develop roots whose total length reached more than 15miles or 24 kilometers, what the hell

The sound of someone snoring can be as loud as a pneumatic drill, sleeping with Tim I can believe this

The famous Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky could jump into the air and cross and uncross his legs 10 times before landing………………wow

Only 4% of the energy put out by a light bulb is light the rest is heat

Castor oil is used as a lubricant in jet planes

Conflict

Are you more likely to avoid conflict or engage it head-on?

When it comes to disagreements with others what do you do are you one to stand your ground or do you try to avoid the conflict.

Are you someone who speaks their mind even if it will course an argument or are you more likely to say little or nothing but do whatever you want anyway. Maybe you are someone who smiles and nods while thinking things like “you’re an idiot” or “just shut up you fool”.

I am one who tries to avoid an argument, I don’t do conflicts very well I get confused and my heart pounds and I just want things to settle down. I have never in my life been in physical conflict aka fight, that is just not me.

Although I have two sisters who will go all badass on you if you start in on her or any member of her family they never back down and will stand their ground. This they get from our dad, who if he felt he was in the right would stand his ground and not back down and dad is only 5’2”.

This and That

Good morning everyone, didn’t get around to doing a post yesterday, it was a somewhat busy day.

Had to take Leo to see his paediatrician and then dropped him at school by that time it was after midday but he really wanted to go to school. Jessica said why do we need to have him there he is weighed and height check and blood pressure checked and then he isn’t needed and we talk about him while he sits bored.

Anyway at 2pm Jessica rings me I had to go and get him because he was upset and crying, turned out they forgot to give him his midday medication. They gave it to him just before I picked him up so after about 20 minutes he was ok, I brought him back here till his mum picked him up at 4.30pm.

He was dropped off this morning at 6am as per usual, he should be staying tonight here so we both get a bit of a sleep in tomorrow morning. It is pissing down rain as I write this how lovely, hope it settles down by the time Tim needs to ride his motorbike to work this afternoon, I worry about him riding his motorbike in bad weather.

Here there is still a lot of carry on about our Deputy Prime Minister and his affair and new relationship with a former staffer and I am so over hearing about, ok his marriage has broken up and he has a new pregnant girlfriend. Did this relationship stop him doing his job NO what has interfered with his job is all the media carry on since the news of the relationship broke.

Just saw an add on telly for some kinda “pickup” this has annoyed me as here down under we do not have “pickups” we have “utes”a “pickup” is what the Americans have, just saying.

Also heard that Camilla will be joining Charles on his trip to Australian for only 2 days because she has trouble with long trips, hell who flies from the UK to Australia for only 2 days. Also not like the woman is going to be flying economy she will be able to have a nice sleep on the flight.

The Winter Olympics are on but I am not interested at all, I have every little interest in sport, but that is ok man people love sport and the Olympics.

14th February or Valentine’s Day

NAtasha

For some reason I didn’t do a post yesterday, I was, however, very tired yesterday and ended up going back to bed at 10.30am after I hung the washing on the clothes hoists to dry and I slept till 1.30pm when I got up to get ready to go get Leo from school. Speaking of Leo he was going to sleep over on Monday night but after being here for an hour or so after school he decided he wanted to go home, this really annoyed his mum but after they talked for a bit she was ok, he did end up sleeping here last night this meant that I got a half hour sleep in this morning, he woke me at 6.30am. Going to be another hot day here temperature around 36°c.

Leo is happy he got his tablet playing through the tv, he doesn’t know how he did it but he is happy it is doing it.

Today it is the 14th which means it is Valentine’s Day Tim has never had time for Valentine’s Day although I just got a message saying Happy Valentine’s Day Darling from Tim, I am lucky that I am married to the love of my life who is my soulmate.

It is also the 31st birthday of our second daughter Natasha, Tim has always felt that she was the best Valentine’s Day gift ever.

Natasha has always been a younger, female version of Tim and as a teenager she was our little rebel and caused us both a lot of worry and some sleepless nights but she turned out ok in the end and is a loving and caring woman and a good mother to Blain our eldest grandson.
