Just another week

A nice sleep in this morning got up at 7.30 just after I woke up and at the time Tim was getting up.

Tasha had been and tossed a load in the washing machine. I got the finished load out and tossed the second load in to wash for her.

Found 99+ messages on the family message group on good old Facebook. Read/listen to them all a lot about the ball incident.

Turned out a nice day all round.

The start of another working/school week here in Newie, going to be another warmish day.

Leo’s driver drove down to the house as I wasn’t there and this is the first day of the new routine and I was just leaving the house to take Leo up.

Been a very warm day, Leo arrived home at 3.26pm only 6 minutes after school got out.

Tim’s youngest sister Diane who is intellectual disabled and has poor reasoning and is more like a child, has been arrested for refusing a Covid test in South Australia.

Seems she hooked up with a man who convinced her to travel to South Aus, they say she was groomed by the man who was arrested on paedophilia chargers.

We have very little to do with Diane by that I mean nothing.

A new day and I woke before the alarm again. I got up and dressed and found myself dripping in sweat even though it is far from hot.

Realised after Leo left that he didn’t have his medication, I forgot why I do not know. Brian picked him up at the door at 8.10 earlier then I expected.

I decided to try and switch the phone cords around to see if the cordless would work and it did. I am happy, I did have to get Jess & Tasha to come and help me.

Tasha & Jess carried on like children, tickling each other and acting silly.

I woke with the alarm and found Tim was up and gone he had a 5.30am start.

This morning at 8.10am I went to get Leo for school, narrowly being missed by the bird. Brian arrived as we were headed up the driveway.

Tasha brought be 2 cupcakes made by Blain they were very yummy.

It has been a bloody warm day and I am in shorts, had to toss out a pair this morning as they felt a bit loose.

A very short chat to mum as Dawson arrived home and was on the phone to his mum and this caused mum to become distracted.

Up before the alarm but not dressed as Tasha is going to give me a shower after Leo leaves.

Had a nice shower, and Tasha changed the sheets.

Spoke to mum for an hour or so she was feeling lonely. Half an hour after I hung up from mum she rang back to tell me that Michelle had rang her for no reason she said by mistake and they talked for half an hour about nothing.

It has been a very warm day.

Tim home at 2pm a short day for him.

Awake at 5.33am got out of bed at 5.45 as I was awake and generally don’t like staying in bed once awake. I managed to dress my bottom half before Tasha arrived, she did my top for me.

Tasha had to take Leo up as it was raining.

Stopped raining so I will be able to collect Leo this afternoon.

Didn’t have much of a chat with mum as Dawson rang twice and then Dave rang.

Leo has gone to Kelli & Jono’s for the weekend.

Another week gone

Father’s Day today and I have nothing for Tim as I have not been out to be able to go shopping for something.

Been a busy day washing, vacuuming and doing the weekly medications.

Mum rang and asked if I wanted to go over for lunch but I said no I really didn’t feel up to it.

I have been missing dad so much lately.

A new week and let’s hope it is a good one Leo is happy and rerady to start a new week of learning and fun.

Jess came over at 10.20 wanting to know where his webster pack was, I think I forgot to ask Tim to get it on Saturday.

Tim has an early day so he took the car into have it looked at im he doesn’t now how to change the setting so the lights don’t come on automaticly.

I was on the phone to mum when it was time to go get Leo so I asked Tim to let me know when the alarm went off and he forgot to tell me. I must have just mised him as I was there at 2.40pm.

Tim was told that the screen needs to be replaced for the reversing camera to work again and that will cost $2,000

I woke at 5.40am and decided to get up, however, I am not dressed yet as Tasha wants to shower me after Leo goes to school.

I did have a shower after Leo went to school, going to be another warm/hot day.

The umbrella Tim placed on scooter feel apart this afternoon.

Good morning Diary had a reasonably good night sleep. Woke at 4.40am but managed to go back to sleep till the alarm went off.

When I went to take Leo up it was spitting lightly and he would not let me go in the scooter in wet weather, so he went and got Tasha to go with him which she did.

A much cooler day back in light-weight long pants after 3 days of ¾ pants. Turned out petty cold.

I have been restless all day doing bugga all, little to no motivation.

Tim home at 1.45pm, so he was able to get Leo as it was wet.

Another day but not as cold a day as yesterday was. I woke just before the alarm went off just after I peed Tim got up and spent ages in the bathroom.

After Leo left I cooked boiled eggs for breakfast and just after I finished eating, I had a sip of drink and it went down wrong causing me to chock, cough and vomit a bit as well as wet myself. Had to get Tasha to come help me change.

Mum was good when I spoke to her she only repeated herself once.

Despite the cold I was sweating on and off all day.

Woke again before the alarm around 6ish, I was having a wash in the bathroom when the alarm went off. I even managed to partly dress myself.

Tasha got my breakfast and helped me get my top on.

Tim home just after 9am he is here till around 1.30ish when he goes back to work.

The cordless house phones stopped working so I turned the modem off and on again, twice and still not working.

I was told by Leo’s driver that from Monday Leo will go from being first pick up to last picked up, and from last drop off to first drop off.

Awoke at 6.10am but managed to stay in bed till 7.30 when Tim got up so I got up as well.

Kathy & the girls arrived at 9am so she could give me a shower.

Jess not working today and she said it feels odd not working.

Leo;s friend Katja came over to hang out for a bit

Kathy & girls came back as Syd had left her ball here. While here Syd was throwing the ball against Jess front door/wall and Jess yelled when she saw it, she was at Tasha’s place. This scared Syd and her mum smothered her as if Jess had done something to intentionally tried to scare her.


I am having phone problems my cordless phones since yesterday around lunch time and it’s so annoying. Our house phone aka land line now runs through the modem has none since we became connected to the NBN.

The NBN is a type of internet service here in Australia, which for so many of us suck with outages and dropouts

There is little to no point of complaining to Telstra as you get told to turn the modem off and on again and then you are told to disconnect the phone line and reconnect it, you also get told to disconnect the phone power line and then reconnect it. If that doesn’t work you get told you may need new phones.

It is so frustrating

Rang Jess to remind her

After Leo left I was returning to the house and there is a magpie that has a nest in the tree in next doors front yard. Well the damn bird has taken to swooping on people coming in and out of each house. This morning e about the custard for Leo to take to school, she was snappy. Leo was still asleep she woke him and sent him over and he forgot the custard. I had to send him back to get it. the damn thing swooped down and connected with my face. Causing it to bleed, I rang Tasha and got her to attend t my small cuts.

It has been a bloody hot day and I have sweat running down my back and the back of my legs.

I will have a bath after Leo gets home because of how much I was sweating.

I woke before the alarm, Tim got up around the same time. Tasha came and helped me dress in the bedroom. It is going to be another warm day.

This afternoon when I went t o meet Leo that damn bird swooped me twice hitting the back of my head but no damage done.

Mum wasn’t good she changed the .topic mid sentence a couple of times and was all over the place.

I received a long message from Michelle going on about how Dawson does so much and feels like it isn’t enough for Sandy & Dave. I don’t disagree but she has blown it out of proportion

Going to be another hot day, so light ¾ pants it is. Tasha dressed me and at 7am Tim got up.

At around 9.30ish Sandy rang to tell me that she had to ring an ambulance for mum. This morning she didn’t wake for her alarm and Dawson had to ring his dad and Dave went over and managed to get her out of bed. When Sandy arrived she was not with it and her blood pressure was high like 143/1k23.

I am very worried about her, Tasha is going on about mum not being able to live alone ans things she should live here with me.

Jess rang Tasha and she came down heard what I said and rang her dad.

Tim came home and drove me to the hospital to see mum.

After seeing mum I was better, she was awake and with it knew who I was and was so pleased to hear Tim was there.

Before we arrived the doctors gave her a drug don’t know what it was but it was something to get her heart pumping and it worked.

She has been admitted to the CCU ward and may need a pacemaker, we will see.

I woke at 6.15 no alarm going off till I opened the bedroom door and I could hear it in the loungeroom going off. I had left my phone in the loungeroom.

Sandy sent me a text letting me know mum is doing ok today she will be in hospital till Saturday

It is a bloody hotish day

Rang mum and spoke to her for about 10-15 minutes as Dave was there.

While I was outside I dropped and broke a candle but I managed to clean it up without incident, however, when I walked inside I must have had a small piece of glass in my foot and when I applied pressure it started to bleed and I had to get Tasha to clean it up and bandage my foot.

I will have a quick shower before going to bed.

I woke just before the alarm just and got dressed in the bathroom with Tasha’s help.

Got hit in the face by the bird again outside Jess’s place I was headed to Tasha’s. Tasha came down and patched me up as there was blood.

Because of the bird attacks Tim decided to tie an umbrella to the handle bar of the scooter to see if it deters the bird.

Spoke to mum, she sounded good hopes to go home over the weekend.

When I got up I found a cup of noodles and a note on my desk asking me to ring Coles and let them know that the cup’s lid was half opened even though the plastic around the noodles was intact. I rang and they credit us the $1.60 to come off our next order.

Kelli & her kids turned up at round midday she helped me do the medication which was good.

Kelli had a fright as the boys where suppose to be watching her and she ran off up the driveway and Kelli had to run after her. This gave Kelli a right fright, she ended up having a cry.

I am shaking so bloody much today.

Tim home at 2pm a short day.

I was on the phone to mum when my alarm for Leo went off and in 5 mins Leo walked into his house and Tasha rang to tell me he was home much earlier then expected. My chat to mum was cut short.

Tasha made rissoles and chips for tea which was nice.

Another day, still cold, not raining and of course I got up at 6.15 when the alarm went off. Tasha came and helped me dress, yes I can dress myself but it takes ages when I have help it takes a couple of minutes.

At around 1.30 Tasha summoned me to her house to see a car parked on her front lawn. It is her new car a 2012 Toyota Camry Atara, it is grey in colour.

Tim arrived home around the same time, his new phone arrived and it has a cracked screen, so he is doing an online chat with Ebay. Turned out he had the wrong Ebay account, I checked my computer book but nope nothing there to help. He changes passwords and stuff so often he forgets what they are.

Jess arrived and helped him I don’t know what the outcome was.

I woke at 5.15 when Tim was getting ready for work. I was unable to go back to sleep at 5.45 I turned the heater on to warm the room before I got dressed. I am wearing tight black leggings because everything else is on the line.

Tim heard from Ebay, they said the add said sold as is, so he is stuffed. I will find out more tomorrow.

Tasha has brought down Blain’s school assignments for me to look at which I will do tomorrow.

I was surprised when the alarm went off I slept all night not waking at all.

Tim was still asleep so I checked what time he started which was 8am. so I got dressed in the bathroom.

It has been a warm day and I have done nothing all day answered another 2 letters.

The alarm went off and I thought all ready, it felt like a short night because I slept through.

I have been lucky to see Kelli & Jonathon and of course Freya, Daemon is at school. I don’t see Jono very often but I do like it when I do.

At 7.10 Leo walked in took his school clothes and went to his room to dress for school. When I asked about his mum he said she was still sleeping.

Mum was ok when we spoke just like normal, no confusion at all today.

Downloaded another book through Lake Mac library but it wouldn’t let me open Borrow Box for Lake Mac it keeps defaulting to Newcastle Library which is so annoying. I will try and sort it out tomorrow.

I didn’t feel like getting up this morning but of curse I did and while dressing Tasha turned up and helped me apply spray oil to my legs as they are drying out and the spray is hard to spray so difficult I can’t do it.

Leo came over at 7.50, he rang me at 7 and said his mum wanted me to ring him at 7.10 which I did but as we talked I said I would ring him again when it was time to get ready which I did.

Tim was home from 9.30 to 1pm another split shift.

Leo came home in a down mood, he went straight home to do chores before his Xbox.

It has been a long ass day.

I got up as usual, just didn’t feel like it but can’t stay in bed all day.

Leo rang and asked when he had to be here, I told him and he said to give him an extra 5 minutes for breakfast.

Around 2pm Jess goes out to go to work and heard a strange noise so she checked the work van over and discovered the back window was smashed. What the hell………

So she rings work to inform them but they already knew the lawn mowing people did it with a wayward stone. However, we all felt they should have knocked on her door and told her in person. This mob seem a bit reckless, they often leave a mess, Tasha rang the DoH and lodged a complaint.

Jess had to take the van into work to be repaired.

Leo in a good mood this afternoon.
