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 🙂

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.

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 ?

 

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 ?
