Cowboy

Today I’m dedicating my blog post to Cowboys I will cover all my favourite media that has cowboys in it.

I guess I will start with Music the first song that comes to my mind is this one:

Because I wanna be a Cowboy baby was the first thing that popped into my head when thinking about cowboys lol.

When it comes to Tv shows Westworld for me has the best representation of cowboys and cowgirls too:

My fave cowboy in this show has to be poor Teddy played by James Marsden:

Now onto Video Games:

You can’t go past Red Dead Redemption to get your fix on all things Cowboy I loved this game and I can’t wait for the second installation of this game:

I guess you could say it was God’s Plan to have cowboys in our lives 🙂

Music

Image result for music imagesAs you are all aware by now I love Music especially what’s topping the charts here in Australia. I pretty much love all genres of music with the exception of classical music only because it has no lyrics in it I can listen to it but I get bored after a while because I don’t know what the music is about I can’t relate to it like I can with music with lyrics.

I don’t know what I would do without Music or John for that matter especially over the last two years with all my medical stuff going on and still on going. Music takes me away from all the stress and worry that being sick brings it makes me feel happy, sad, it makes me want to get up and dance even though I struggle to with my fatigue to do so I still try too even if it’s for two songs and it makes me remember people and things from my past which is sometimes happy memories and sometimes sad ones. I just love Music and I am so grateful to have Music in my life.

“God’s Plan” has held the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart for the past three weeks.

My God’s plan Health Update:

Ok so last week I went to my GP my down here to talk to my new Endocrinologist up in Cairns via telehealth/skype who I must say is amazing he asked me heaps of new questions that no other professional has asked me before he is thinking out side of the box and is thinking forward and this is what he is looking into and what he has recommended for me to do next.

He said I could be resistant to my thyroid medication which is why I’m still showing symptoms and why I’m still feeling unwell. Which is why they my thyroid levels show up as normal but they maybe not.

He also said I could have Anxiety and Stress because he found that I have high cortisol levels and low vitamin D levels in my sleep study that I did last year. So with this he is testing my cortisol levels with a 24 hour urine test and I am now on 2000IU’s of vitamin D which is two tablets a day for a month then one a day for the rest of my life after that so that now makes 5 different tablets in total I now take a day throughout the day everyday.

He said also I could have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome so for this he is testing my adrenal glands so I also have to have a saliva test done.

He is also testing my testosterone levels with another blood test so over the next few weeks I have to get all these tests done and see what my new Endo can come up with.

This is what’s happening this month on the 14th of Feb John and I will be going to my doctors down here to get my latest medical test results with my new Endocrinologist via tele-health so I will see what god’s plan is for me hopefully.

It’s also valentines day the day I get my results so I’m not sure what’s going to happen that day but I would like to go and see:

It’s directed by Guillermo del Toro who has done some of mine and John’s favourite movies and tv shows Hellboy, Hellboy 2 and The Strain.

We have been watching a few new shows this month too here is what we have been watching this month:

 

I re-watched the the first and second season of the original tv show I remember loving it way back then I was sooo obsessed I even bought the diary of Laura Palmer when I was in high school. The new season is even more crazy to follow but I think it’s more funny than the original one was and I’m loving all the celebrity cameo’s in this one way more than the original too. This one is on Stan here in Australia 🙂

If you love Blade Runner this tv show is for you it has everything in it and  it reminds me of Bioshock the video game as well I also love that it has a Australian actress in it that used to be on Neighbors too.

This tv show is on foxtel it’s another contender to take on The Game of thrones it has one of the actors from The Walking Dead on it who plays another good part in this one too.

Speaking of The Walking Dead I have also started watching Fear the Walking Dead which I think I so far like it more than The Walking Dead to me it has more of a human element too it’s more about the relationships between people than The Walking Dead which is more about violence and the zombie’s which this one also has.

 

I hope the rest of 2018  gets even brighter 🙂

 

 

God’s Plan

This is the first new No 1 on the Aria charts this year God’s plan by Drake I guess it was god’s plan for Drake to knock Ed Sheeran of the top spot lol. I love this video it reminds me of my clubbing days I love the little black dress and high heels the woman wears in this clip that’s the kind of clothes I used to wear when I would go out either clubbing or to the casino to play blackjack or the pokies. I miss those days soooo much I loved that feeling that you would get when you walk into a room and you could feel everyone staring at you it made me feel good and special.  For Drake it’s clearly working.

 

God's Plan Black T-ShirtSpeaking of clothes I found this online I love it this is how I feel when some people have children and are blessed to have two or more especially the ones who have both a girl and a boy (the ultimate child lotto)  and they don’t seem to care (they don’t give them any routines or guidelines or rules or morals or values) and they whinge about how hard it is to have them and they just take them for granted when there are so many people out there that would be so happy to have children but for whatever reason they can’t.

Weather Service: This is what’s ahead this week for us here in Mackay we had a big storm on Saturday night with much welcomed rain John was doing the happy dance as our rain tanks are now full our cats didn’t like it so much they were a bit scared poor things. So far it’s been a crazy summer dry one month and wet the next lol.

My God’s Plan Health Update:

So last week I went for another round of medical tests that my new second endocrinologist requested I think there was 13 different tests in my blood test and a urine test and a blood pressure test with me first lying down and then standing up which this time it was high when I was standing up which it’s weird because it used to be low lol thrown in for good measure I will find out my results in a week and a half’s time when I go to my gp down here and I get to have a tele-health session with my new endo who is up in Cairns because we have none here in Mackay at the same time so both my health professionals know what’s going on and so hopefully will John and I too.

Celebrate No 8

So last week around lunch time I got a phone call from a lovely lady from Hit VIP – Southern Cross Austereo which is one of our local radio stations and my fave one asking me if I had done a survey with them I confirmed that I had and she told me that I had won a:

Flexi eGift Card

It’s worth $50 bucks which will come in handy after having a teenage boy in the house for 6 weeks we will probably spend it on groceries for ourselves 🙂

I’ve actively decided to troll the competitions. Maybe I should call myself the competition procurer lol.

 

January 2018

Image result for perfect happy new year 2018

First of all Happy New Year it’s been the perfect start to the new year for us as my man had two weeks off of work mostly except the few times he got called in lol. So we got to take my stepson down to the beach for a walk which was really windy but that meant the sun wasn’t sooo hot so it was nice then a few days later there was no wind and it got really hot 35 degrees so we went into town and got a Byrne’s meat and pea pie each and went to the shopping centre to sit in the aircon with a frozen coke which my stepson really enjoyed lol. We played a few games of Monopoly whilst my man was on holidays the end result was I won 2 games my stepson won 2 games and my man and I tied a game it was so pleasant to be together and having fun. We also went out for Subway a few times for dinner to give my man a break from cooking on his BBQ lol.

Last week my man was back at work so it was just me and my stepson at home so pretty much I was on my computer or watching Tv, Netflix, Foxtel now or Stan while my stepson was playing on his computer I did get my stepson to play a couple of games of cards with me we played Go Fish and I taught him how to play Blackjack just without coins or chips as I don’t have any.

This week it’s just me as my man drove my stepson back up north to Cairns they left at 10am and got in at 7pm my man said they saw lots of wreaked cars that had crashed along the highway I wish our government would use the money they get from speed camera’s to fix the Bruce highway (not Brisbane) but north from at least Rockhampton to Cairns it’s such a dangerous road or better yet bring in Autonomous Cars so we can eliminate all the bad drivers out there.

As I mentioned above I have been watching a few things on Tv and payed subscriptions services over the last few weeks these are what I have loved watching:

I watched the whole season of Big Little Lies it was amazing and very true and real about what goes on in peoples lives behind closed doors and it delves into domestic violence which for me at times was hard to watch as I lost one of my school friends last year to domestic violence. The cast was brilliant I loved Alexander Skarsgård as he was one of my faves in Trueblood there is nothing he can’t do he is perfect in my eyes.

This show is the reason we resigned up to Foxtel Play. My man is obsessed with the X-Files and (Dana Scully aka Gillian Anderson) last year he bought the complete seasons and movies I love it too I’m just not as obsessed lol.

My man and I are huge Will Smith fans and this movie was a perfect sci fi movie with the underlying message about racism and had some really funny bits in it too I can’t wait for the second one to come out.

So that’s what I have seen so far this year this is what I hope to see in the coming weeks:

I have been rewatching my boys from the beginning again on Stan and now tonight I get to watch the new season on free Tv. I’m so happy that it’s on at a reasonable time 8:30pm so I hopefully won’t be falling asleep lol. I love them both but I have to say Dean Winchester aka Jensen Ackles is my fave 🙂

Next week when John comes home from up north I’m hoping to go and see Star Wars The Last Jedi with him at the movies it’s become a tradition for my man and I to go see each new one at the Theatre since we started going out 14 years ago may the force be with us to see this one.

I hope you all have a perfect January too lots of love Brony oxox.

A Perfect Sparkly Christmas

I was hoping to do this blog on Monday but we were having such a pleasant day getting swept up in spending time together that I didn’t get around to doing it on the day and up until today I haven’t been feeling or sleeping very well at all so here is what happened on Christmas day.

PC291110.jpg

John surprised me with these pretty pink gem stoned sparkly earrings for my Anniversary/Christmas pressie (I know it’s not the best photo of me it’s hard to get both earrings in the picture and smile at the same time lol). I bought John some gift cards so he can get what he wants and needs.

John and I woke up at 7am Christmas morning and got ready (Blake didn’t want to go to bed early so he could join us because he didn’t know them at all I said to him that I didn’t know them at all either but they must be pleasant people to have invited us over hey and I was right too) we went over to his Co-workers place which is just two blocks from our place for Christmas Brekkie ( we had Ham, Bacon, Eggs, Croissants, all kinds of fruit and salads and homemade hollandaise sauce along with orange juice and peach iced tea (which is Blake’s favourite drink). They were such pleasant people John and I felt like part of their family we were there for two hours we took them over a box of chocolates for Christmas for having us over.

When we got home Blake was awake which is the first time since he has been here this school holidays that he was awake before lunch time lol. We rang all of our family and friends and opened the rest of our pressies.

John gave me Razors and Blake got razors and a playboy gift set with deodorant and shower gel etc which John wrapped it in a apple ipad box to trick Blake lol (I don’t think Blake was too happy with that but if he had gone to school and got better grades he would of gotten a better pressie like the graphics card he wanted but when he got 4 D’s and 2 C’s and missed 70 days for the year it’s not going to cut it). Then John let Blake open the big pressie which was for all of us it’s something that I’ve wanted for many years as I’ve played it online on pogo and on xbox one for the last few years.

Monopoly Token Madness is the reason why I didn’t get around to doing this blog we had the most pleasant time playing it and I’m pleased to say I have won two games and John and I tied the game we played yesterday we have almost played it everyday so far lol.

John and I also re-watched Westworld for a second time while waiting for John’s chicken to cook that he stuffed with lemon, garlic and rosemary from our garden along with roast potato’s and carrots for our Christmas lunch together it was very pleasant indeed. Image result for westworld images

Over the last few weeks I have also won a few more prizes as well I have won:

A $20 Caltex star card which we spent it on fuel

Image result for caltex $20 star card image

I won three video games through Fanatical:

Honorable mention I also won a pair of sunglasses but I decided not to claim them Yellow just isn’t my favourite colour if I had won the Car or the holiday or the $250 cash I definitely would have claimed it.

Did you all have the perfect Christmas I hope you did ? Lots of love from Brony oxox.

P.S I found this picture on Pinterest it’s called cloud sky storm and I thought I would share it with you all Happy Christmas 🙂

 

 

Perfect

This is the new No 1 here in Australia Perfect by Ed Sheeran he is back with this beautiful perfect love song. I love this video and I think  Jason Koenig who directed this video as done the perfect job.

Me:  I’m not perfect I used to think I was almost perfect until I got this Auto Immune Thyroiditis now I keep getting pimples everywhere mostly on my face and I’ve put on so much weight I look like the puff marshmallow woman I look in the mirror I don’t recognise myself anymore. However I am very grateful that my man is still here looking after me without him who I do think is perfect to me I don’t know what I would do without him.

White Perfect Clinical Day Cream SPF19 PA+++ 50ml - Product Image

I’m going to try some of this day cream above to see if that will help my pimples on my face and hopefully it will be the perfect day cream for me I’m at the point where I’m willing to try anything.

The perfect tree

It’s Christmas time which means time to put up tree’s and lights etc Unfortunately this year I’ve have decided not to put up the tree as I’m still very fatigued and I just don’t have the energy to do so 😦

I do however remember the year we got the perfect xmas tree I was 7 years old and it was our first xmas out at the Greenhills cane farm me and my Ma and my three brothers got in our old ford falcon and we drove up towards Bessie Point and there was a whole lot of pine cone tree’s we pulled in and we all helped Ma cut the perfect xmas tree down we strapped it to the roof of the car and took it home once home we all helped set it into a pot in our lounge room upstairs Ma and I found all the decorations and tinsel and the star for Dad to put on the tree when he got from work we all spent the afternoon decorating the tree while listening to Joe Dolce Christmas in Australia even our dogs and cats where trying to help us decorate the tree lol. We had so many bauballs and ornaments and tinsel and lights even real candy canes so we could eat them on xmas day to me it was the perfect tree.

Here are some of the songs that we listened to while decorated our perfect tree:

 

 

Havana

This is the new No 1 here in Australia and I love it I have also had a thing for Latin music and dance since I was a little girl I especially liked and am thankful for the cameo of the grandma played by Lejuan James he is very funny in this video.  A release date for the record has yet to be announced.

Next year I will be turning the big 40 I’m not dreading turning 40 as much as I did when I turned 30 I hated it because I realised I was getting older but now as I’m getting closer to 40 I’m realising I’m still here and breathing and I’m very grateful for that I also realise my eye sight is starting to fade it’s getting harder to read the small print on things so I will at some point be getting my eye’s tested and if I need glasses I think I have found the ones I want:

They are very cool and havana-esque I think and I would be happy to wear them 🙂

As I mentioned above I have loved Latin Music and Dance from when I was a little girl here are a few songs and movies that inspired this enchantment for all things Latin:

I loved this movie so much I tried to win a competition to go over to America to meet the cast and crew I had to write and send the entry away back then in the 80’s lol my how things have changed hey.

When this song came out I just couldn’t stop dancing to it I loved it so much.

I love Madonna and this has to be one of my fave songs of hers as it’s Latin inspired.

I loved and was obsessed with the first Dirty Dancing movie and I loved and was equally enchanted by the second one.

All these memories of my youth make me feel very happy and make me realise how lucky I am to have been able to experience these phenomenal visuals and sounds throughout my life and at times even got to test the moves out on the dance floor.

 

November

Hello November

November has one main birthday in it and that’s my Stepdads Birthday on the 10th and this year I will get to see him for his birthday as we will be up in Cairns to visit friends and family so Happy Birthday Dad oxox 🙂

It will be a very busy month for my man he has started his Project Management course which will continue throughout the month whilst he continues his normal work duties on top I’m so proud of him even though I know how stressed out he is at the moment he will at least be walking away with another Cert 4 to his list of achievements he has completed over his hard working career.

As for me apart from going up to see my family and friends for the weekend next weekend I still have to get another blood test and a CT scan done to see if they can see what’s going on with me. I have been on my anti depressant tablets now for a few weeks and the only difference I have is that I’m now sleeping through the nights but I still feel like crap and I still feel tired it’s very frustrating when you know you do all the right things I don’t drink or smoke I go to bed around the same time every night I try and eat as healthy as I can and nothing seems to be working for me.

Rockstar’s open-world crime thriller LA Noire comes to PS4 and Xbox one in November

Features a range of technical enhancements and all expansion content.
I am really looking forward to this I read that it may cost around the £30 price point which means here in Australia is will cost around $60 I love Rockstar games and I can’t wait for this one 🙂
