Good morning world and what a morning it has been, no idea why I said that. Anyway it is now Monday the first day of the school week, although the kids don’t return till tomorrow or Wednesday.

Now to this weeks facts.

The saying “often a bridesmaid, never a bride” comes from an advertisement for Listerine mouthwash.

A pineapple is a berry.

Only one person in two billions will live to be 116 or older.


WEEK 4 OF 2022

I woke when Tim’s alarm went off at 4.30 and was out of bed at 5am. Been a bloody long time since Tim started work so early.

I had a decent enough day.


Awake and up at 4.50 I think. Made the mistake of mentioning to Tasha that her dad said she left him an abusive message, which set her off. I read the messages between them not abusive in my opinion.

Had to wake Tim at 9.40am which is odd not like him to need waking of morning.

My arms started hurting around 1pm which is better then all day, I guess.


Woke at 3.30 to pee without issue then again at 5am when I got up for the day.

The pain in my left arm is not good today. I feel like the injection hasn’t helped.

Managed to fill in a few pages of the grandmother memory book. Some pages I skipped because it is an American book, and we don’t have Thanksgiving or Halloween.

Around 1.45 I decided to have a shower, this didn’t go well. I use a bath-board which is a board that sit across the top of the bath that I sit on. Well as I was sitting my feet slipped and the board slid backwards and I ended up in the bath in an awkward position. I wasn’t alone Tasha was there but getting me into a standing position wasn’t easy. I have now hurt my arms more.



Up and ready for the day at 5.15 after a reasonable nights sleep.

However, late yesterday arvo Kelli and an issue with the bitch in unit 14. She said to Freya who is only 3yrss old that if she went on her lawn she would flog her, so Kelli went to speak to the bitch who pulled a club on Kelli. So Kelli rang the cops, I will find out more later in the day.

So Tasha & Kelli went to the cop shop about the psychobitch and there is little that can be done they suggested mediation but the bitch will not do that.

I am in a shit load of pain, both arms and knees and now the lower right side of my back.


A new day has arrived and I am in slightly less pain as it starts.

I have decided to try eating the frozen berries I have, they are supper sweet.

Tim has bought a new washing machine, it’s an LG 8.5kg machine. Not sure when it will be delivered.

Been in a lot of pain since 10.30am.


Had a really good night sleep wise, up at 5am as per usual.

Started the food shop at 7am but the website is being a bitch and a half, as in it keeps freezing and not loading. At 1pm I finally managed to get it done, Tim will have to pick it up tomorrow as by the time I was able to checkout and pay I wasn’t able to get it delivered.

Today has been a hard,frustrating day. Pain in knees is bad.


Woke at 5.30 after a good nights sleep. Kathy and girls here by 6.15am. I was crying while showering, I feel so sad, tomorrow is Mum’s 82nd birthday. I miss her so much. Kathy wasn’t sympathetic.

There is a BBQ at the old house today before Dawson moves.

Had a good day hanging out with my siblings got home at 3pm and straight to bed to sober up.



Please Don’t Cry

Please, don’t cry.
I’m not really gone.
When you look out the window,
I’ll be standing on the lawn.

Please, don’t cry.
I’ll see you again.
Don’t be sad;
Keep up your chin.

Please, don’t cry.
I’m not really dead.
When you cry yourself to sleep,
I’ll be by your bed.

Please, don’t cry.
Just because we had to part,
As long as you remember me,
I’ll live in your heart.

Please, don’t cry.
I’m not gone forever.
I’ll be a cool and gentle breeze
In hot summer weather.

Please, don’t cry.
Don’t run and hide.
When you need a shoulder to lean on,
I’ll be by your side.

Please, don’t cry.
When you’re sad and weak,
I’ll be there
To kiss you on the cheek.

Please, don’t cry.
This is just a goodbye.
So please, oh please,
Baby, do not cry.

Hello world today marks two years sine the first case of Covid here in Aussie land.

Well it’s Tuesday and that means extreme creature day and this week have the Peregrine Falcon, the fastest animal in the world.

It coasts high above the ground until it spots something it wants it then folds its wings flat against its body and drops into a dive reaching speeds of more than 300 km/h. Wham within seconds this powerful bird has plucked up its prey with its large strong talons.

They have a special pair of eyelids that helps protect its eyes and vision as it dives through the air. They have a wingspan of 70-120cm’s.

The Peregrine Falcon is found in most habitats, from rainforests to the arid zone, and at most altitudes, from the coast to alpine areas. It requires abundant prey and secure nest sites, and prefers coastal and inland cliffs or open woodlands near water, and may even be found nesting on high city buildings.

Peregrine falcons are solitary, territorial, top predators. … Non-migratory peregrines, such as those in Pittsburgh, stay on territory alone or as a mated pair. No other peregrines are allowed in the territory, not even their own offspring. Peregrines have no long-lasting “love” for their young.


Hello Monday here I sit drenched in sweat and not that hot either, here are this weeks facts………….

The phrase “rule of thumb” is derived from an old English law which stated that you could not beat your wife with anything wider then your thumb.

The colder the room you sleep in the more likely you will have bad dreams.

In 1987, a 1,000cc motorbike travelled one mile at the Illawarra mini bike club here in New South Wales, Australia. It was carrying 46 passengers.

Italy once had a campaign for Schweppes Tonic Water that translated the name into “Schweppes Toilet Water”.

November translated literally means the ninth month, even though now days it is the eleventh month.

WEEK 3 OF 2022

Woke at 5am got up washed and rang Tasha, no answer, I got dressed rang again, no answer. I started my breakfast and rang again, no answer. I was starting to worry. She then arrived in a mood, why well apparently she told me she wanted Sunday morning off. I do not remember her telling me that. She took over getting breaky ready even though I said I was fine. I felt like shit.

Tim back at work and of course he feels sick this morning.

Tasha apologise for how she was this morning. She has quit smoking and is short tempered.


Slept in till 5.15am after a somewhat painful night with my arms hurting.

The book I was listening to last night had me laughing, not easy to do with a Cpap mask on.

Managed to write some letters, empty the dishwasher and put the clothes away, before pain got to bad.

Another hot day spent sweating.


A new day has arrived after a decent enough night, awake at 5.15 which was a surprise as at 4.15 I looked at the time and thought just 30 more minutes, then it was an hour later.

Another hot and muggy day, also a somewhat restless day for me.

Many years ago my mum was given a Grandmother record book in which she could write about her life but didn’t. I came across the book after her death, so I am using it. I of course can not handwrite in it but I can type up and print out the information and paste the information in the book. In fact I think I will do four copies one for each grandchild.


Woke to the sound of rain at 4.10am found I couldn’t settle again so got up at 4.30am.

The ice pack I was using for my back has fallen apart and been binned. Now when I put my feet up my back aches after only 10-15 minutes.

Have appointment for cortisone injection into left shoulder tomorrow at 10am. Kelli is taking me.

Looks like we are getting new neighbours a young couple with a young son.


Another day more rain, also have a cool breeze. I was awake and up at 4.20am.

Went and had injection all good and Kelli even came here after she dropped me off and picked up mail to be posted and posted them for me.

Been pain free for most of the day.

I am going to miss Kelli when they move.


Woke up at 3.30 got up to pee and found I couldn’t settle back down also had a headache.

My BGL was 18.1 and took some insulin, I know this is because of the cortisone injection.

Damn I have a lot of back pain. My arm still has some pain.

Jess can’t put me to bed as her arm is swollen and sore, due to having tattoo work done yesterday. So Jono asked Tasha to do it which she will but in a mood.



Had a damn good night sleep once I fell asleep, even managed to get up and go to the loo without drama. Got up at 5.10am and Kathy arrived an hour later. I am now fed, showered and have a cleaner house.

Looks like our washing machine is stuffed, it will not spin.

Dave brought over genealogy folder.



I’m Sorry

Sometimes I wonder what my world would be like
If I didn’t have someone like you in my life.

I come back to reality only to see
That I wouldn’t be myself without you and me.

I am looking forward to the future, hoping you’ll be with me,
Growing old together and being happy as can be.

I want to spend the rest of my life making it up to you.
I know all of the hell I’ve been putting you through.

I am so sorry, and I can’t say that enough,
But I hope that’s the last time it will ever be rough.

I love you completely, with all of my heart,
I will love you forever, ’til death do us part.

Tuesday now and that means extreme creatures day, this week it is the Stout Infantfish, this is the smallest Australian fish and the second smallest fish in the world.

It grows to a maximum of only 8 millimetres in length which is pretty small. If you had a kilo of them you would have one million of them. . The stout infantfish is also the lightest vertebrate, weighing just one milligram

It is transparent without pigmentation, except for its eyes, and lacks teeth, scales and certain characteristics typical of other fishes. Scientists note that the stout infantfish’s unusual appearance corresponds with its extremely short lifespan, which is believed to be approximately two months.
