Wind On The Hill

A. A. MilneBy A. A. Milne More A. A. Milne

No one can tell me,
Nobody knows,
Where the wind comes from,
Where the wind goes.

It’s flying from somewhere
As fast as it can,
I couldn’t keep up with it,
Not if I ran.

But if I stopped holding
The string of my kite,
It would blow with the wind
For a day and a night.

And then when I found it,
Wherever it blew,
I should know that the wind
Had been going there too.

So then I could tell them
Where the wind goes…
But where the wind comes from
Nobody knows.

My Week That Was

OK STARTING THIS WEEK MY WEEK THAT WAS POST WILL BE ON A SATURDAY AS I DON’T POST ON FRIDAYS I PREFER TO ONLY HAVE ONE DAY BREAK BETWEN POSTS OVER TWO.

Slept in again till 7am, Tasha was here seconds after I opened the front door. She gave me a shower before getting my breakfast.

Leo, Daemon & Freya came over for breakfast they returned to Jess’s a couple of mins before Kelli arrived.

Mum was ok today rambling a bit but ok

What a dark overcast morning, I woke at 5.55am my mask was making a lot of noise so I decided to get up.

Went to put the dishwasher on and it will not start.

Tim took the motorbike in for rego check before he left he said to me that he expects Leo to come running when he starts the bike and ask if he could go with him.

No surprise that Leo did want to go with Papa and that Papa said yes he could so he did.

Mum was good tonight

Woke at 5.35 but didn’t roll out of bed till 6am, found Tasha had been down a tossed a load of washing on. I was washed and and had my breakfast stuff out ready to be prepared.

Also found that Tim had done all the dirty dishes and he did a load of washing and hung it up to dry.

Tim drove me my appointment with podiatrist he then went Supercheap before coming home.

Mum was ok but our chat was interrupted by a phone call from Dawson and then I had Leo want me , followed by mum getting another phone call so only chatted for 30 mins.

Leo is staying tonight

Had a bit of a sleep in dragging my weary body out of bed at 6.30am. I set stuff up for breakfast before Tasha arrived to make breakfast.

Another warm and sticky day for me.

Mum sounded good although she was rambling a bit but she sounded good while doing so.

Awake and up at 5.45am had things out ready for breaky and was having a wash when Tash arrived.

Tim has taken the car to auto-transmission place for a service. Said it cost less then expected.

Tim received the new dashcam he ordered for the rear window in the car.

Mum was happy to tell me about a letter she got from Kathy-Lee although this was one she got last month but I didn’t let on.

Awake and up at 5.45am again, Tasha didn’t arrive till 6.30 she was asleep. So I had things out and ready as well as having my hearing aids in and my meds taken. I was also washed and naked trying to dress myself, when she arrived.

Leo;s 13th birthday we gave him $50 gift card for Bing and a Pop Vinyl. He said the gift card was for too much money but hugged and thanked us].

Later he came out in a mask and hoodie and scared the life out of me.

Tim making calls about the dishwasher. After speaking to a repair man, who told him it would cost around $300 to repair and because of the brand and how hard it is to get parts for it that it would be better to just buy a new one. So that is what he did. It will be delivered this afternoon

Jess putting me to bed this afternoon.

Shocked not Surprised

Hello world, what news to wake to this morning, America looking like some third world country under going a coup what a disgrace.

I wonder what average Americans are thinking and feeling watching this mess play out on their TV screens.

I was shocked but not surprised.

Birthday Wishes To My Son In Heaven

© Deborah Robinson More By Deborah Robinson

Published: January 17, 2019

If I could have one wish in life,
That wish would have to be
That God would take away my pain
And send you back to me.

Your birthday’s here today, my son,
And I just wanted you to know
How much I deeply love you
And that I miss you so.

On days like this we should celebrate,
But for me that now proves hard,
For unlike other mothers, I cannot send
A simple birthday card.

No kisses can I give you
Or birthday gifts to buy.
Only flowers I now can give you,
Which I place down where you lie.

Two other things I send you
Are my thoughts and all my love,
So hold them close and keep them safe
In Heaven up above.

And please wait for me, my darling
Until my days are through,
And then I’ll come and spend all time
In Heaven just with you.

Last Week Of 2020 First Week Of 2021

Christmas is at last done with for this year. I hope next Christmas I am more into the season.

Kathy came over and showered me ironed her dad’s work clothes as well as changed the sheets on my bed.

Leo spent last night here and most of the day still here when I went to bed.

Monday is here, during school holidays I lose track of the days and forget what day it is. I have a calendar hanging just above the computer.

Had a sleep in woke at 7am after a good nights sleep.

Saw Sandy she came to pick up something I had printed for her.

Leo slept here again last night and spent most of the day here again. I wonder if he will stay tonight.

Mum sounded ok not great but just ok.

Woke at 5.40 but looked at the clock and decided to lay there till 6 but it was 6.40 when I next woke.

No Leo here this morning he went home around 8.30ish last night.

A cold, wet day and Tim is off for the next 3 days.

Mum was good better then me today.

Rained all day

Awake and up at 6am, Tasha decided to give me a shower this morning before I got dressed.

A cool and dry morning but a cold and wet afternoon.

Spoke to mum she was good.

Tasha went to the chemist for me

Last day of 2020 and I was up at 6am managed to unpack the dishwasher before Tasha arrived to dress me and get my breakfast ready.

Tim went to the shops and bought two 24pk double ply toilet paper, we only generally use 3 or 4ply but since he bought it we will use it.

Tim also vacuumed out Leo’s room which was a big help. Leo had removed large rubbish items and dirty clothes but hadn’t vacuumed which made the room look very messy.

Tim also told me that Jess & Leo are going to Kelli & Jono’s for the night.

Tasha also has plans but she was looking for a ride home she was going to ask Jess but now is going to ask Kathy.

Kathy said she would do it.

Mum was all over the place when we spoke.

Happy New Year all, hello 2021. I was awake about a minute before Tim;s alarm went off at 6am so I got up.

Kathy turned up at 9am and gave me a shower, much cooler today.

Last night Leo wasn’t able to sleep and requested an extra bit of night time meds, which I gave him. He still couldn’t settle so he ended up going home to his house and slept there.

Another coldish and wet day

Slept in till 7am which was a surprise, got up opened the house and the next thing I knew Tasha was walking in.

A coldish wet day again I don’t even have the fan on.

Kelli dropped her two off at Jess’s for the night and while here wanted to borrow my thermometer only to find out it is cactus, so Tim bought a new one via Ebay

Hello 2021

Hello world, hello 2021, let the year roll on.

I have no resolutions don’t see the point, nor do I set goals for the year, again I don’t see the point. The reason for this is I know I have zero follow through so why bother.

I take each year as it comes, I always just go with the flow of life. This goes back to when I was a child I can remember being asked by a relative what I wants to do when I grew up and I had no answer all I would say was whatever happened happens and I would handle it when it did.

I remember when I was 16 my Nana asked me what type of boyfriend I wanted again I had no answer as I had no interest in boyfriends at the time. I ended up saying a good man like my dad.

I ended up marring a good man like my dad.

So let 2021 roll on

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
