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 🙂

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.

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.

 

September

It’s been a busy September for us so far my man has had lots on at his work with a 8 step investigation to do on top of all his other varied parts of his regular tasks he has to fulfil in his job. He is currently looking after his 14 year old son as it is currently school holidays as per consent orders with his son’s mother.

As for me I have had lots of medical tests to get done (which I did get done) a blood test to check how my Thyroid is going a Sleep study to see if I have sleep apnea and a Ultrasound on my pelvis which it looks like I have fluid in my tubes I am still waiting to get results on all these tests.

On the 23rd of September it’s my eldest brother David’s birthday and it’s also my mother in laws birthday so Happy Birthday Dave and Mum 🙂 oxxo.

Here are some September songs:

Here is more on Sam Smith’s new song:

I hope you all have a Good September (well what’s left of it anyways). Goodbye for now.

Brony Bell 🙂

Too Good At Goodbyes

This is the new No 1 song on the Aria charts this week by Sam Smith it’s a beautiful, terrific and sad song that’s for sure.

Unfortunately for me this is very true I am too good at goodbyes I have had to say goodbye to a lot of my friends from a very young age and over the years and up to very recently who I think about everyday as I know they are all smiling down on me from heaven and I feel blessed to have known them on this earth and that I have them now watching over me as my angels I love you all very much oxox.

I also want to pay tribute to Princess Diana I remember the day I heard of her passing my Ma and I were shopping (surprise, surprise lol) when the news came over the radio and we stopped and left and went home as we thought it was too sad to be out shopping as we were both crying as it was so whenever I hear this song I think of her:

Elton John is coming to my current Town of Mackay in a few days on the 22nd of September I wish I could go to see him but with my current state of fatigue that won’t be possible 😦

 

Look What You Made Me Do

This is the new No 1 song on the Aria charts here in Australia Taylor Swift has knocked Pink off her throne after only three weeks at the top I love the music video for Look What You Made Me Do I love the beginning with zombie Taylor (You know I love zombies lol) and at the end when she has all the different Taylor’s lined up and they all tell each other to SHUT UP (My fave Taylor is the Third one in the Black long sleeve shirt/dress as I love black clothes and it’s hip hoppy look). I know how that feels I often want to tell myself You can all SHUT UP lol.

I found this sign on Etsy I wished we had this sign when we lived on the cane farm as we always had so many people either living with us (foster children, friends and family) or visiting us and my poor Dad was always having to get someone in to help with our septic tank. I also like the graphics on the sign which lightens the seriousness of the message on the sign.

I can’t believe how Chilly it still is here it’s usually warming up by now overall totally it’s weird the mornings are really chilly and then the afternoons are hot then it gets chilly overnight again I wish the weather would make it’s mind up lol.

What About Us

This is the new No 1 song on the Aria charts this week What About Us by Pink she knocked Despacito off from it’s long rein of 16 weeks at the top of the charts which if I were Pink I would be proud as punch of that. Stay tuned for Pink’s new album Beautiful Trauma on Oct. 13.

I have been asking that very question a lot lately What About Us when will it be me and my mans turn to have our cake and eat it too we have gone through so much over the last 14 years together the good and the bad but lately nothing seems to be going our way we have both worked so hard and yet we keep falling short of our goals it always seems like we take two steps forward and three steps back it’s so very frustrating and I know that me being hit with unwellness hasn’t helped with us achieving our goals which is really hard when I’ve gone from being someone with passion and drive and enthusiasm to not even wanting to get out of bed most days which I always make myself do because who wants that for themselves and I also know that it could always be worse because I always strive to be positive and optimistic as I have always done but that is now a lot harder when you wake up everyday feeling unwell. Having said all this I wouldn’t change a thing and I’m Looking forward to the next chapter with you my wonderful man I love you oxox.

How cool is this:

 

I am also very grateful to have this year upgraded our mobile phone from a Samsung Galaxy S4: Image result for samsung galaxy s4

To a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge

Maybe I can set a new goal for myself and make a anti gravity cake drawing inspiration from the Samsung phones lol.

OMG I Have Done It Again :)

I just was going through my E-mails this morning and low and behold I have won another prize here is what I have won:

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children prize pack valued at $100, including:
1. One copy of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children DVD.

I’m so happy as I haven’t seen the movie and I think I might invite the Neighbors and their kids over to watch it for our viewing party and take a picture and send it before the 9th of Jan so I could then go in the draw to win a pair of Emma’s boots from the movie.

I love that it’s a Tim Burton directed movie as I have been a huge fan of his work since he did Edward Scissorhands and I think he is fantastic.

I love that I am winning things as it’s making me feel better about my current health situation it’s making me feel happy even if it’s for a little while and I feel more confident and I feel like I have a purpose at the moment when things in my life health wise are not so good.

January

This is what is planned for our January this year for me I will be resting and taking it very easy unless by some miracle I get to see my Thyroid Specialist and he discovers the answers to my problems so until then I will be catching up on all my fave Tv shows and movies on Netflix and Foxtel (thanks to my darling man for working hard and providing these luxury’s for us) I also will be listening to Spotify which has been a blessing to have when I have my really bad days and can’t get out of bed.

As for my man he will be very busy working starting tomorrow for a couple of days he has to clean an entire house from top to bottom as now he is also a property manager for his work along with a huge number of other job titles (too many to mention them all) he has to partake in and not get overtime for (but gets to bank up holidays which is a stretch to get when he is needed maybe not valued enough in my opinion) in his forever changing and added extra to all the time Job. My man on top of all this has to take care of me and our house as I can’t do much at the moment being unwell.

On the 22nd of January is my darling mans 47th birthday so we will be celebrating his birthday by going out to our fave restaurant The Rice Buffet and then maybe to see a movie depending on what’s on and how I’m feeling as I can’t seem to go past 9 pm at night before I hit the wall and have to go to bed to sleep.

Here is what’s on the menu at our fave place to eat The Rice Buffet:

The End.

 

Part Of The Problem

I have known this has been a big problem in my stepsons life since he was little when he would come to us for visitation weekends (every second weekend) and he would wake up in tears and screaming from nightmares from movies (like Chucky at age 3, Saw at age 8, The Kingsman at age 11 ) he would watch these inappropriate movies with his mother and sister (who is 7 years older than him). Each time his father and I would be horrified that he had been allowed to view/watch these disgusting and disturbing materials and there is nothing we could do (apart from already discussing all issues including these with his mother in several meditations which failed every time because it’s not a refection of her behaviours and her parenting and we have talked to my stepson till we are blue in the face about how inappropriate these movies are and not to watch them if he doesn’t want to) because his mother had custody and the right to raise him as she sore fit and that was to be his “friend” and not his parent.

Image result for when children watch inappropriate movies imagesImage result for when children watch inappropriate movies images

It has become very clear to me after watching  DEADPOOL (which my stepsons sister took him to see last year when he was 12 and once again we didn’t know till after the fact when stepson had told us he’s already seen it we looked at the reviews at the time and were appalled once again that his mother had let her son see this type of movie) for only maybe 10 minutes or so when (Wade and Vanessa are comparing how bad their lives are and Wade confides he had been molested by his uncle and Vanessa counters that she had been molested by multiple uncles and that they took turns) (anyone who knows my past would know why this was a point of no return for me and why it upset me so and to stop watching the rest of the movie) just how much of a problem viewing/watching this content has become and how much it has influenced his current behaviour (which is in the toilet at present) and why he is using the worst swear words in history and saying them with such anger it’s scary and no wonder he is being disrespectful to the women in his lives (including me) It’s partly because he is allowed to view/watch such content and not only allowed but it’s deemed as :”funny” and “acceptable” behaviour in his household.

My stepson needs a lot of help at current and I’m not sure how to do that when we are only in his life for school holidays it’s very hard and sad that this is how it is for my stepson and others seem to think that this is in the best interest of the child.
