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 🙂
On Sunday the 3rd of September 2017 it was Fathers Day here in Australia my darling man rang his Dad and I rang both my Dad and my Stepdad for a Fathers Day chat. I know my man isn’t my father and I shouldn’t have to do anything to make his day special but as his only son lives 9.5 hours drive away and rings to say: “My mouse isn’t working what should I do” with no Happy Fathers day well until he goes around to my In laws my stepsons grandparents later in the day to help them move furniture around in their new home he then calls to say Happy Fathers Day only because he is reminded by them I always try and make it a special day by letting my man do what he wants watch what he wants etc I was very lucky this year to have entered a competition for Fathers Day and I happen to have won it for him it arrived by mail yesterday here is what I won:
My man is wrapped with his Fathers Day pressie and at least now we won’t have to role around in the hay in the dark anymore lol Brilliant 🙂
Here is some music for Fathers Day:
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.
It’s been a busy month so far it was my niece Sarah’s birthday on the 12th she and her boyfriend got to go over to New Zealand to help celebrate her boyfriends grandfathers birthday over there.
Last week I went and got another blood test to see if I need my Thyroid medication levels to be changed and next week on Wednesday I’m going to get rigged upped for my home sleep study to see if I also have sleep apnea which will take 10 days for the results to come back to me.
As for my wonderful man he has had a hard few weeks back since his holidays he had to attend two funerals for his work which really shook him up and is trying to catch up on what wasn’t done while he was away the poor bugger and he has been unwell to boot but what can you do the bills still have to be paid hey meh.
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:
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.
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 🙂
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.
It’s always a busy month for me and my family as there are a lot of birthdays for my family and friends to celebrate in June. On Wednesday this week it’s my 39th birthday (it’s also my cousins birthday on my birthday) then the following Wednesday it’s my Ma’s big 70th birthday she is currently over enjoying England and Wales visiting their grandchildren over there the day after Ma’s birthday it’s one of my dearest friends birthdays I also have another 4 friends born in June. Happy Birthday everyone I hope you all have a wonderful day oxox 🙂
It’s also winter here in Australia in June and once again I’m feeling it at least now I know why I have always hated the cold weather it’s currently 18 degrees here in Mackay I know that’s not very cold to a lot of people but when you have Hypothyroidism autoimmune thyroiditis being cold sucks and you feel it really badly and this year I’m determined not to get sick so I’m making sure I’m constantly rugged up.
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.
This is what is happening for me and my family in May. Tomorrow is my Nephews birthday So Happy Birthday Ty I hope you have a Awesomely Cool day 🙂 Sunday the 14th of May is Mothers Day so I will be calling both my Ma and my Mother in law I have been entering a few Mothers Day Comps so my fingers and toes are crossed to win one of those. On the 30th of May is my Stepsons 14th Birthday I can’t believe that where has the time gone that means I have known him for 13 and a half years wow.
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 🙂
