Today’s post is all about Love: I love my man John he is wonderful and so hard working he amazes me everyday he is such a strong, incredible. smart and very funny man who in my mind is a outstanding human being and I love him with all my heart.
What’s your fave Love song mine is:
I know it’s not the usual typical Love song but I love this song it gives me chills and makes me all excited every time I hear this song it’s about that first time you notice someone and they notice you and that excitement of new Love fills the air I also Love the fact that he asks her if he can sit next to her which is lovely and romantic within it’s self.
So what’s your fave Love song ?
What makes me smile is listening to music while entering competitions and sometimes I win them which really puts a smile on my dial 🙂
I entered a few more comps today and I thought I would do a recap of what I have won so far this past year:
This was my first win and a bonus it was in blu-ray I love this tv show I started watching season 3 the other day.
This was my second win I loved everything I got John helped me eat the food lol and I learnt that just because a movie has the word children in it doesn’t mean children should watch it quite scary in parts for children this movie.
This was my third win I love this because it not only cooks rice but also veges in it and it even came with a spatula too.
This was my fourth win it also came with two Dad quest pins for John to wear I gave it to John as he has been on a Dad quest for 14 years which reminds me:
Happy Birthday to my stepson who is 14 today we hope you had a wonderful day and remember to keep smiling oxox 🙂
Honourable mention I would of won this Airism shirt from Uniqlo but unfortunately it had to be claimed from Brisbane and my brother was away at the time to claim it for me.
What makes you smile 🙂
I want to do a post on Gambling it’s been a part of my life since I was little as my father was and still is a mad gambler he started at the age of 18 playing poker with his mates and then progressed to lotto, horse racing and when the Cairns Casino came he played every game possible blackjack, keno, and the pokies he would always tell you when he won and how much he won but never would tell you when he lost and how much he had lost it was good when he won a jackpot as he would spend it on us buying us things and taking us on holidays his biggest Jackpot he won was $140,000 on keno (I was 26 at the time) which he spent on painting the outside of his house, a new stereo system, appliances for the kitchen and a Triumph motorcycle (I’d wished he’d done what I asked him to do and that was to pay his house off but he didn’t unfortunately he is still paying it off) he is still trying to win the big one but on a tighter budget now he is retired and on a pension whenever I hear the song the gambler I think of my dad.
How crazy is that the song came out the year I was born my father had me in training for gambling at the age of five playing blackjack we started playing with bottle caps and then as the years went on and I got very good at the game we would play with 5 cent coins and then fake casino chips that he had collected over the years. When I turned 18 they built a Casino in my home town so that’s where I went for my 18th birthday I also had a birthday party with friends and family as well but I couldn’t wait to use my blackjack skills for real and I loved it I was hooked immediately I will say I have always been good at saving money and I did the same here I would only take my limit with me which was $50 and if I lost it then I would go home and if I won anything over $100 in a jackpot I would take it out and go home.
The most I ever won on blackjack was two lots of $500 in two weeks on the 7 system which was my fave to play as 7 is my lucky number the most I won on the pokies was $250 on the dolphin treasure machine I got all the treasure chests in a row triggering the free spins. The other thing I loved about going to the casino was spending time with my dad we would play and then have dinner afterwards it was a passion we both had and a way to communicate with each other.
When I met my man John when I was 26 things quickly changed with my gambling habit as he didn’t like gambling I did continue for a little while as my mother was now into playing the pokies as well but I eventually realized what gambling had done to my father and the family and how much of a hold it had on him and his life and what really could be lost and that is relationships (which is ultimately what happened over time) which to me is way more important than money (I would rather pay off a house than try and win a jackpot that may never happen).
I still do play but only for fun not for real money (the only way I would play for real again would be if I was in Las Vegas) My fave site to play on is https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwigzcam3pPUAhXFW7wKHSS5D2EQFggnMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vegasslotsonline.com%2Ffree%2F&usg=AFQjCNGT4XULG-QNkK_rsS6c6rktreBPYg&sig2=6Ve9n3CeK_9YtKaKWYHW-Q
I only play the demo versions for free and I only play every now and then for fun and my man doesn’t mind that as it only uses internet data and not real money I also sometimes play pokies, blackjack and poker online mostly on Facebook.
That’s where I will leave it as I’m off to play for fun and remember please gamble responsively it’s not worth losing the people and things you love the most in your life oxox.
What makes me feel Happy the most is listening to Music and Dancing 🙂
What makes you feel Happy ?
This is the new no 1 song here in Australia the remix which is the actual no 1 song features Justin Bieber I love the party vibe this song and video has it reminds of Lambada and any Zumba songs which I also love makes me want to go back in time to the clubs and dance up on the podiums again 🙂
Despacito means Slowly in Spanish.
I love that vinyl is back in a big way my fave vinyl record back in the 80’s was the ghost-busters movie soundtrack I was obsessed with that movie I had a t-shirt which I wore everywhere lol. What was your fave vinyl record from back in the day ?
This is the second song to knock Ed Sheeran off the No 1 position on the Aria charts it covers inclusion amongst Singers and Rappers and Dj’s lots of scantily clad women and expensive alcohol and of course gold out of all that I love the white horse in the video which reminds me of when I was little riding my cousins beautiful white horse 🙂
I’m the one that always gets invited to baby showers and birthdays if I had a first child this baby walker would be truly awesome but unfortunately this won’t be the case I am grateful though that I got to spoil my stepson from the age of six months I remember we bought him a red car for him to ride on just like what his daddy had at the time before we had to sell the red commodore due to having to pay child support.
Did you know you can look up where all the gold in Australia is on Google maps my man’s dream is to find some gold one day and I hope he does find some to prove to people he can find gold because if anyone can he is the one to find some.

My Health Update : A few weeks ago I went to see my Endocrinologist up in Cairns for the weekend to get my latest blood test results and ultrasound results etc. My blood test results came back in the normal range however I did ask her why am I still fatigued and she said we will investigate that and she has given me a second thyroid medication to take as a booster if that fails I will be seeking to get a sleep test done. So now I have to take my 75 mcg tablets for 5 days just one tablet a day half hour before food and my new second tablets 7 days a week but I have to halve them so I take 10 mcg in the morning and 10 mcg in the evening on a empty stomach I have to order both medications in specially from the chemist as they don’t last in stock they go off apparently. I’m so glad John came with me to see my specialist so he can help me keep me on track with my medications. The ultrasound wasn’t clear I may have a cyst in one of my tubes on my left overy but the scan couldn’t see it properly so I have to get another ultrasound done (yuck) to see if they can see it this time more clearly but my thyroid specialist wasn’t worried about that I also have to get another blood test in the next few months but there is no rush to do the ultrasound or the blood test and I have to update my specialist how I’m going in a couple of weeks via email or I may be able to Skype her now I have the internet back on. I am feeling slightly better then when I initially went to Cairns at the beginning of the year I’ve just got to get my energy levels back I hope 🙂
