On Sunrise this morning

This morning on Sunrise I saw and heard the following stories.

More women are dying of heart attack then men because women don’t generally get the “Hollywood” style of heart attack where there is a lot of chest pain, women are more likely to feel nausea and back pain or stomach pains. It seems that women are 50% more likely to die of a heart attack then a man,not only do we have different symptoms but we ignore the symptoms for longer and just carry on because we don’t get that terrible chest pain you see in the movies and tv shows. There have been many times when I have had chest pain but always assume it is just ingestion and do nothing other then take a Mylanta tablet and hope it goes away. Does this come as a surpise to me……….Nope

There is a lot of salt in bread and some breads have more salt then a packet of potato chips,and it isn’t just white bread but wholemeal and some flat breads as well, also doesn’t come as a surprise to me.

Yesterday afternoon there was what reported as a seize in Tights Hill which is in town about 15-20minutes from where I live, a guy who the day before stabbed three people unknown to him and robbed a store was on the roof of an apartment complex he was on the damn roof for 17 hours he came down around 5am this morning, this hard ass bitch doesn’t get why they had to spend so long negotiating with fella but I get you can’t shoot the dickhead because that would be wrong. The residents living around the area had a terrible night as they had to leave their home and wasn’t allowed back till around 6am that would have pissed me off.

Seems that people prefer a good old book with pages over Ebooks this also doesn’t come as a surprise I prefer a normal book over and Ebook you don’t have to charge book and you can carry it everywhere.

Days after a mid-air emergency that saw a propeller fly off a Rex plane bound for Sydney, the airline has taken action and grounded five similar model aircraft. The propeller was found close to homes yesterday not were they thought it would be, it had to be winched out as it was 150kgs in weight and some were surprised it was found so quickly.

That is about all I have for today’s post, more to come tomorrow.

Lazy Day and My Weight

Good afternoon, well here we are at the end of another day here in Newie been a pretty warm/hot day again. This afternoon while watching telly with Tim I commented that I was really tired and Tim said why didn’t I go have a nap, so I did, I slept for over an hour then it was time to get ready and go and get Leo from school this afternoon.

Been a pretty lazy day for me not doing much at all no appointments, no laundry to do,only the usual housework that needs to be done day in and day out.

Leo said he had a better day at school not great but better, also when he got home he asked for a toasted ham & cheese sandwich, also had a not from the school to order ham & cheese toasted sandwiches next Tuesday and he said he wanted me to order 2 for him, I will order 1 I think as he doesn’t eat much at school.

I am still feeling stiff and sore but I am still working out each morning.

On Sunday when Tim and I returning from going to my parents place he had something he wanted to do with the caravan and the we went to the shops, well on the way from mum & dad’s place to Warners Bay Plaza he started again about my weight and how much I eat and that he wants me to have weight loss surgery and wants me to as the doctor about it when I see her on Wednesday. I ended up snapping and telling him I get it and to give it a rest, he said he just wanted to make his point, I said point made, now you are just making me mad.

I know he loves me and worries about my health but nagging me about my weight only gets me pissed off. He said the exercisers are not working this is all because I am stiff and sore and can barely move at times, I said it takes time for the exercisers to pay off but I think he expects to see a change in a weeks time but I know it takes longer.

I have never been interested in having weight loss surgery but I have agreed to speak to the doctor about it which I will do tomorrow when I go to the doctors for my yearly care plan.

My morning

Well here we are at another day, can’t say the day started off that great well the getting up and exercising was find and I even managed to put my knee high stocking on without much trouble but around 8am things went south.

The boys (Blain & Leo) got into a punch up which was annoying and frustrating and made me yell but what really made me see red and lose it with Blain was when Leo had fallen to the floor and Blain started kicking him in the ribs. As far as I am concerned kicking a person when they are down is a cowardly thing to do, as Jessica said when I told her if they were drunk it would be understandable or if one was frightened and fighting for their life kicking someone would be understandable but this was two little boys fighting over nothing really so such an action was uncalled for.

When I dropped Leo off at school he said he was sorry that he upset me and told me he loved me, and could never hate me, the hate me bit was because as we were leaving this morning I stopped at the top of the driveway and asked if one of the boys would get out and get the catalogues off the letter boxes and neither would so in a huff I got out and said sometimes it is as if you hate me. I was just in a mood.

After taking the boys to school I went and had my mammogram done and on the way home I rang and spoke to Natasha and explained to her while I lost it with Blain even though she was on the phone to Blain while all this fighting went down. I wanted to explain things in a calm manner she said she will be speaking to Blain about kicking when she gets him from school this afternoon as she also agreed you do not kick someone when they are on the ground.

She also said that Blain will not be going to is mates place after school today because of his behaviour this morning.

Natasha said she is having a lot of attitude from Blain on Friday mornings and Mondays after he gets back from his dad’s place the problem on Fridays is because he doesn’t want to go to his dads and he often returns in a right mood as well.

I think the fact that Blain knows his dad doesn’t like Steve and thinks Natasha is being stupid for supporting him has something to do with why Blain doesn’t want to be with his dad, Blain like most children want to see his mum happy. Also Jono is very strict and Blain has to do chores and homework and and can’t get away with stuff like he does when he is with his mum.


I was nominated for the Sunshine award by Diane at http://ouiinfrance.com/ if you don’t already follow her go and check her out, here are the questions she gave me to answer along of course with my answers. I don’t nominate people though 

What’s your life philosophy or motto?

Life’s to short to be miserable you’d like.

Have you ever seen a ghost?

No but have felt a spirit with me, while laying in bed there have been times when I have felt someone sit next to me and touch me but there is no one there.

How do you relax after a long day?

Have a hot bubble bath

Do you have a favorite book or movie?

No not really at different times in my life there have been movies I really enjoyed and watched a number of times but no over all favourtie

What’s your worst habit?

Eating too much

Are you a morning person?

Hell yes, I get up at 5am and exercise and blog and if I have to have an appointment I prefer a morning one, straight after I take Leo to school works best for me

What’s your favorite childhood memory?

What comes to mind is the things I did with dad, like running power to the garage or wallpapering the kitchen

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

I don’t do crazy

What do you get really, really excited about?

Christmas and holidays

What is something you’ve done recently that is worth remembering?

Damn I can’t think of a single thing

If you had the power to change anything about the country you live in, what 3 things would you change? Be as serious as you’d like.

The cost of domestic airfares, they are ridiculously high cheaper to fly overseas sometimes then to fly anywhere in the country.

Our internet speed it is too damn slow in some parts of the country and too damn expensive

How much we pay those who serve in the military and police force and such they deserve more money for willing putting themselves in hams way to protect the rest of us.

Good Morning

Good morning all I am up dressed and stiff and sore, my back the last couple of days has been giving me a lot of trouble, why you wonder, well each morning when I exercise I do 30-35 minutes of yoga type exercises to help strengthen my back and give me more movement aka flexibility in my back and legs at the moment I have very little so at the moment I am stiff and sore and movement hurts but in the long run these exercises should improve my movement in the short term there is pain and stiffness.

The above was written yesterday Friday morning this morning Saturday morning I am not as stiff and sore and have increased my yoga workout to 45 minutes by adding two extra exercises so this morning I did 70 minutes of exercise up 10minutes on the usual.

It is still wet here but I don’t need to go out at all so that’s good, Leo will be here hopefully around lunch time and not before as his mum is working this afternoon/night. There is some event on at the Hope Estate Winery called the Hot Dub Machine no idea what that is though but for Jessica it means work and work means money so she is happy and Leo has no problem staying with Nanna & Papa, although Papa will be at work all day today.

Since I started this I have read around 30 blogs and had breakfast and watched a bit of telly and now I generally feel like my head is going to fall off it is heavy and kinda stuffed up and I keep sneezing and coughing and part of me just wants to go back to bed as I am feeling pretty tied but Leo will be here soon so that isn’t going to happen.

Five things Friday


Hello Friday and this Friday I can post could have posted last Friday if I had thought to use Tim’s computer like I am now doing and have been doing all week, oh well sometimes we are a little slow to realise things, this Friday like all Fridays will be long and busy as it is the main day I go shopping.

Anyway without further ado here is this weeks five things.

Stiff and sore



Wet and warm/hot

Feeling Good

Sweating and Stabbing

So we have had a string of wet days here with cool mornings and warm days and the last two days when I did Natasha’s laundry I had to use the dryer to dry it, well this afternoon I done a load of my own washing and when it was done I went outside expecting to throw it in the dryer but it was fine and sunny so hung it on the line and now I have sweat dripping off me.

When I went to hang the washing out I was missing a heap of pegs found them all broken on the ground will be saying something to Leo about that, also I am going to need a new laundry basket as the one I have is breaking also thanks to Leo.

At times Leo can be a destructive little sod, the other day I found him in the laundry stabbing the box I use for the recycling with a streak knife, when I asked him what he was doing he said just stabbing, when asked why he was stabbing he said just feel like it. Took the knife off him and explained that I do not like him to do such things and you can’t go around stabbing stuff,his reply well it is just a box not a living thing,he then went on to explain that you cannot stab living things because it would hurt them and they may die and that is wrong but a box is ok because it has no feelings and cannot die. I didn’t know how to respond to that other then to say it makes a mess and can destroy something I am still using.

In about 10-15 minutes I will be leaving to go get Leo from school, so may not get this finished and posted till after I get back from doing that he is going home to his house tonight and again tomorrow night but I think Jess has work on Saturday so he will be back here then.

Also I stink from the sweating, good thing I am not going out around people this afternoon, yes I use deodorant every day proper deodorant not that body spray stuff well I use that too with the proper deodorant I think too many people mistake body spray for proper deodorant, just saying.

Back again the thermometer in the car said it was 30°c when I got in it to go get Leo,no wonder I was dripping in sweat, heat and wet weather equals hot and sticky I will be going to have a nice relaxing bath when I am finished this.

Back to Leo and knifes and scissors he has a thing for these items, he takes after his mother when she was a child she had a fascination with knifes and scissors as well. She once stormed into the house into the kitchen crapped a large knife and was starting to leave the house saying “I’ll teach the little shit” she was referring to one of the neighbours son who was about the same age as her. I of course stopped her and took the knife off her and told her you cannot go around threatening people with knifes just because they have pissed you off. She thankfully out grew that stage.

Well I am off to have a bath and will be back tomorrow, hope you all have a good night or day depending on when you read this.
