Milk

I have always loved drinking Milk but if I drink too much it doesn’t agree with me over the past year in my quest for what’s going on with my health and trying to look after myself better I’ve decided to go lactose free which is making me feel a lot better and I can go back to drinking Milk again without any consequences which is really good. Here is the Milk I now drink:

Lactose Free Full Cream Long Life Milk

Occasionally I break the rules and indulge in Milk chocolate with nuts as long as I only eat it in moderation it doesn’t affect me to much here are my fave Milk chocolate with nuts products to indulge in:

What is your fave types of milk/milk chocolate products to indulge in ?

 

July

This is what is happening for me and my family in July it’s currently June/July school holidays and my man John is up in Cairns looking after his 14 year old son it’s hard for my man when his son doesn’t bring his student ID with him so they can’t go to places at local discount prices when you also have to fork out $768 per month in child support and pay for my stepsons food and entertainment on top it’s also winter and even though it doesn’t get as cold there as here in Mackay it has had moments of quite cold weather and rain up there so that also makes it hard to do things the last thing my man wants is a sick child or send him home sick and miss even more days off school.

It’s also my beautiful Niece Dana’s 20th birthday on the 10th of July I hope she has a wonderful day.

As for me I’m looking after our fur babies and our house while John is away I am also going to be preparing for my upcoming home sleep test next month I got all the documents and info to read and fill out for that today I didn’t realise how much you have to do beforehand. I hope you all have a wonderful July 🙂

Friends

Hello my fellow blogger friends I thought I would update you on how things are with me I went back to the doctors last week saw a new doctor as my doctor was away and once again I asked about my fatigued and told him I can only drive 20 mins then I’m buggered or if I do some household chores in the morning I have to rest in the afternoon as I’m buggered he asked me some questions as I have been asked these questions before several times I thought once again nothing would happen thank god I had John with me again as back up to confirm what I was going through I told him I’ve been like this for over a year now and want some answers and I then was shocked he gave me what I’ve been after for this whole last year a sleep study test referral now I’m just waiting for them to ring me back for a appointment to get rigged up to a machine to take home for a night and hopefully I will get some answers on my fatigue and sleep issues for the first time in a long time I felt like I had been heard when I left the doctors office I started crying I just couldn’t believe it. I’m now on two different meds for my Thyroid during the week I’m good because I’m on 85mgs and then it’s a struggle come the weekend I’m only on 10 in the morning and 10 in the arvos as my thyroid specialist doesn’t want me to overdose on them if you get too much you can go to hyper instead of hypo and cause more problems for yourself. Thank You all for your love and support oxox.

Animals

Today’s post is all about Animals growing up on a cane farm in north Queensland we had all types of animals the cuddly cute types and also the scary dangerous types of Animals on the farm here are the cute cuddly ones we had (these are just pics from the internet not of the actual Animals we had):

We had many types of dogs on the farm we had a German Short-Haired Pointer called Angie.

Image result for chihuahua images

We had a lot of cats over the years to many to mention but we loved them all. We had a Tabby called Tom he was special as he loved our dogs and was always cuddling up to them who said cats and dogs can’t be friends.

Image result for tabby cat images

We had a pure white cat called Bianca (means white female in Italian) she had different coloured eyes and wasn’t blind or deaf and she was a true survivor (just like her human mum me is) she and her kittens went missing for days we think she took on a dingo to save her kittens she came back to us all scratched up and almost dead she slept on my bed for days and came to and was all good she lived until she was 20 years old.

I always loved seeing Christmas Beetles as that meant it was almost Christmas time and they are so pretty to look at.

Now for the scary dangerous ones:

Image result for rats images

We had lots of rats around which is why we had lots of cats to chase them and eat them I hate them they used to chew our electric cables and I was cleaning through my stuff one day and found a whole family of them in my box of stuffed animal toys and teddy bears as I put my hand in mummy rat went crawling up my arm and down my back I never in my life screamed and sweared so loud lol.

Image result for images of huntsman spiders

We had lots of spiders of different types mostly huntsman’s but this one year we had a horde of spiders that would live on the toilet roll handle and come out at you and hiss they were very scary we had to wear shoes everywhere and not put our clothes on the floor.

Image result for australian snakes images

We had lots of snakes all different types green tree snakes which were beautiful to look at from afar and we had eastern brown, taipans, red belly blacks, carpet snakes just to name a few we couldn’t go for a walk at night as there would be thousands of them on the dirt road.

Image result for wild boar images

We had lots of wild pigs around the country side I was walking one day and came across a mummy pig and her baby pig and I was chased by mummy pig I had never run so fast in my life.

Image result for dingo images

We had a few dingo’s around the country side as well.

Image result for plover bird images

We had plover birds around the cane farm nesting in the cane fields they were ok unless you went near a nest then they would attack you which happened a few times making me run home.

Image result for bugs images

We had lots of bugs I was always getting bitten by something scorpions in the pool, praymantis on the windows, elephant and rhinoceros beetles that our dogs had trouble with to just name a few.

Image result for cane toad images

We had tons of cane toads around every day I would have to get the broom to get one out of our down stairs shower they are so gross.

Image result for pig dogs images

With wild pigs came pig hunting dogs that are trained to hunt and kill the wild pigs in our area the problem was is that the people who owned the pig dogs didn’t care about them and would just let them go and leave them to kill people’s pets and livestock we lost our Chiwawa and our neighbors lost their cow and calf.

Here is a song called Animals 🙂

Here is my other blog about my current Animals in my family:

Dream

I’ve always been fascinated by dreams  whether they are the dreams we have in the night or the dreams we want to be or do in life. I don’t always remember my dreams in my sleep but when I do I like to look up what the dream may mean it’s lots of fun and makes my laugh at the meanings here are some for you to look up what your dreams may mean:

https://www.dreamscloud.com/

1. Falling

Loewenberg calls this dream a “red flag from your subconscious.” She believes this dream is common in people who are having a major life problem with work, relationships, or elsewhere. Grant’s work concurs with this viewpoint, even citing the same examples.

2. Teeth falling out

The experts greatly disagree on this one. Wallace views teeth as a symbol of power and confidence. This dream is supposedly a sign that something happened in the dreamer’s life that has caused him or her to lose confidence. According to Grant, teeth are a bad omen and represent a broken relationship. Lawrence has a Freudian answer to this dream. For women, she believes the dream is an example of wish-fulfillment—they want to become pregnant. For men, it is a desire for sexual stimulation.

3. Showing up to work or school naked

The experts largely agree that this dream represents vulnerability and anxiety. Wallace’s research reveals that this dream is “common to people who have accepted a promotion, gone off to a new job, or who are coming into public view.”

4. Test-taking

Lawrence has observed that only perfectionists tend to have recurring stressful test-taking dreams. She alleges that the dream reminds a person to stay alert. Loewenberg believes that in adults, these dreams draw parallels between school and a job. Because both places see a lot of pressure-filled situations, Loewenberg associates this dream with work stress.

5. Dying

Lawrence’s interpretation is that this dream “reveals the wish to terminate something in life: a relationship, a job, a career path, or even the past.” Grant’s dictionary emphasizes that this dream is not necessarily a nightmare. Rather, he repeatedly states that it is a dream meant to encourage a person to embark on a new endeavor or fresh start.

6. Meeting a celebrity

Wallace names this as one of the dreams his clients have the most. He believes the actual celebrity is relevant and may reveal what talents the dreamer values. In Dream on It, Loewenberg writes that celebrities are a symbol of a personal need for recognition.

7. Being chased

Despite the nightmarish feel of this dream, Wallace considers it a positive sign. He believes that this dream is supposed to encourage the dreamer to finally face a problem that has been hanging over his or her head. Loewenberg encounters this dream more often in women than men.

8. Partner is cheating

Most of these authorities agree that this dream should not be taken as clairvoyance. According to Loewenberg, “The cheating dream happens when your mate is spending too much time and attention on something that does not involve you.” Similarly, Lawrence notes a lack of trust in a romantic relationship tends to spark this dream.

9. Showing up late to something 

This dream might be a sign that someone is overwhelmed and doing too much, according to Wallace. On a related note, Grant interprets this lateness as a warning: “Don’t make promises you can’t keep.”

10. Flying

Wallace claims that the dream encourages a person to let go of current issues and allow things to ”fall naturally into place.” Similarly, flying is a sign that there is an out of control situation in real life, according to Grant.

11. Being pregnant

Grant understands this dream as a sign that the dreamer is having problems. Lawrence views it as a need, either to start a creative project or become a parent. Or the dream may be representative of a new idea that has recently come to the person, as Loewenberg believes.

12. Driving an out-of-control vehicle

The interpretations of this dream are just as cliché as expected. For example, Wallace writes, “You may feel that you don’t have enough control on your road to success.” Grant warns that this is a sign that a current bad habit may become a long-term problem.

My fave Dream song is:

and the one of my fave movies of the same name of the song:

Always remember to Dream big and that we will be fearless and we will be great.

Holiday

 

While my Ma and Pa (stepdad) are enjoying there wonderful Holiday over in England and Wales I thought I would do a Blog post on my fave Holiday memories and my fave Holiday song.

When I was 13 my bio Dad won the lottery and decided to take me and my Ma and my foster sister Shelley on a holiday to the Gold Coast so we packed our bags and went on our way down the coast from Cairns I made sure I took my Sony Walkman and my cassette tape of Madonna’s The Immaculate Collection with me:

This song just brings back so many memories for me and got me so excited for our Holiday I played the whole tape back to back the whole time we were in the car all 19 hours and 46 mins lol.

I remember staying at the Jupiters Casino:

 

I got in trouble for wearing odd socks in the restaurant which back then was all the rage and then me and Shelley got room service Cheese burgers and chips and Ice cream Sundays for dessert while Ma and Dad went to see a show in the casino I also remember going on the monorail which is now closed into the city we went to Grundy’s which is now closed as well.

We also went to the Theme parks:

Image result for dreamworld images

I have been to Dreamworld a few times and it was always my fave one to go to I loved the rides and got to cuddle a koala which pee’ed on me luckily they also have white water world so I could wash the pee off on the slides lol. It’s a shame the park has had bad trouble in recent history which makes me very sad.

Image result for movie world images

I loved Movie World too it was so much fun and I couldn’t believe I found my best friend Nicky (we had special nicknames she was Nickel and I was Bronze) there on one of the parks busiest days I remember going with her on this roller coaster ride over and over again and I loved the Gremlins ride and the Car stunt show and going behind the scenes on the movie lot.

So what are your favourite Holiday memories and songs to listen to along the way ?
