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

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 🙂

October

It has been a busy October for us so far on the 10th it was one of my best friends husbands 40th birthday I was very happy and pleased to hear when I rang that he was at home with his wife and three kidlets to open his pressies and have cake together as usually he is at work when I ring to wish him happy birthday.

It’s also my sister in laws birthday on the 10th she went over to visit her relatives and friends over in New Zealand and from what I have seen on Facebook she is having a wonderful time.

On the 17th it’s one of my very best friends 40th birthday I have known her since we were in grade 2 so I will be ringing her tomorrow to wish her a happy 40th birthday. She had a party for her and her husband but I couldn’t go as I’m still sick and John is going to Brisbane for work this week as usual there is too much happening all at once I would have loved to have gone I’m too tired to be out yet alone to be bowling and how I look and feel atm it just doesn’t feel right the last time I was there I was fit and healthy and flirty and sexy and that’s how I want those memories to remain not overweight, ugly with pimples everywhere and very unwell to boot I just wouldn’t of been happy to be sitting on the sidelines watching everyone else have fun while I couldn’t and I would of left early because I was too tired so for me it just wasn’t worth going it maybe different if I had still been living up there and we didn’t have to drive for 9.5ish hours to get there I could of just called in for a few minutes at least I’m hoping to catch up with her the next time I’m up.

John has been very busy at work he is flying down to Brisbane tomorrow for work for 3 days and he has just had the green light go ahead to do his Cert 4 in Project Management so that means he will have to fly to Brisbane another 3 times over the next month or so to do and complete this course I’m very happy and proud of him for working so hard to achieve what he wants in his career and for himself personally he truly in my eyes is a Rockstar.

As for me almost two weeks ago I went back to my doctor to find out my sleep study results and my second Ultrasound on my pelvis results. Well my sleep study results came back with absolutely nothing I have no sleep apnea or any other sleep problems zero zip nadda so I then asked my doctor why am I soooo tired all the time and he said well I’m not sure and he once again asked me questions about how I sleep and whats happens I told him my mind races and I can’t go to sleep and that I sometimes wake up at 3 in morning and can’t go back to sleep so he has put me on anti depressants to one help me sleep as they cause drowsiness(a lot of drowsiness I’ve had to cut the tablets in half as it was too much for me which my doctor said to do if that was the case) and two they will help with my Anxiety I really didn’t want to go on them as I have seen what happened when my stepson was on them but I’m at the stage after feeling sick and out of sorts for now 2 years it’s time to try just about anything that I haven’t already tried so far I have been feeling out of it and like drugged for around 7 days and the last few days I feel much better and back in some form of the world but still not right and I’m now sleeping from 9pm through to between 730am and 8am so I feel like I sleep more and all I feel I do is take tablets and sleep throughout my days and I’m still tired all the time weather I do things or not John did say that I seem a bit brighter which I do but I’m still not what I was or what I want to be. As for my Ultrasound once again they couldn’t see what was happening they thought I had fluid in my tubes but their not sure so I now have to go and get a CT scan done to try and see what’s going on I also have to get another blood test which is covering everything to see how all levels of everything is going.

I’m looking forward to playing some of this this October I haven’t played too much of anything as I get tired so easily so I’m hoping I will get to play some in the next few weeks 🙂

I hope you all have a Rockstar October lots of love Brony 🙂

 

 

Rockstar

This is the new No 1 on the Aria Charts here in Australia it’s definitely a song about a Rockstars lifestyle lol.

My real life Rockstar (my man) arrived home safe from his two week trip to Cairns to look after and see his 14 year old son for the school holidays he drives up on his own for 9.5ish hours and then has his son for two weeks and then drives back here home for another 9.5ish hours now that is a true Rockstar in my opinion.

As for me I’m a real life zombie that’s how I look and feel at the moment I think I need to invest in some of these lol:

I will be ringing my doctors to get a appointment to get my results from my sleep study this week.

Talking about Rockstars I also love Rockstar Games.Image result for rockstar

I love Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA5) here is the latest update for the online game:

I also love Red Dead Redemption and I can’t wait for the second one here is the clip for the new upcoming sequel:
