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.

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.

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.

Image result for christmas beetle images

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:

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 ?

What Makes You Smile :)

What makes me smile is listening to music while entering competitions and sometimes I win them which really puts a smile on my dial 🙂

I entered a few more comps today and I thought I would do a recap of what I have won so far this past year:

Strain, The - Season 1

This was my first win and a bonus it was in blu-ray I love this tv show I started watching season 3 the other day.

20170111_163409.jpg

This was my second win I loved everything I got John helped me eat the food lol and I learnt that just because a movie has the word children in it doesn’t mean children should watch it quite scary in parts for children this movie.

This was my third win I love this because it not only cooks rice but also veges in it and it even came with a spatula too.

10 Dad Quest Easter Mugs Up For Grabs!

This was my fourth win it also came with two Dad quest pins for John to wear I gave it to John as he has been on a Dad quest for 14 years which reminds me:

Happy Birthday to my stepson who is 14 today we hope you had a wonderful day and remember to keep smiling oxox 🙂

Honourable mention I would of won this Airism shirt from Uniqlo but unfortunately it had to be claimed from Brisbane and my brother was away at the time to claim it for me.

WOMEN AIRism Camisole

What makes you smile 🙂

Jackpot

I want to do a post on Gambling it’s been a part of my life since I was little as my father was and still is a mad gambler he started at the age of 18 playing poker with his mates and then progressed to lotto, horse racing and when the Cairns Casino came he played every game possible blackjack, keno, and the pokies he would always tell you when he won and how much he won but never would tell you when he lost and how much he had lost it was good when he won a jackpot as he would spend it on us buying us things and taking us on holidays his biggest Jackpot he won was $140,000 on keno (I was 26 at the time) which he spent on painting the outside of his house, a new stereo system, appliances for the kitchen and a Triumph motorcycle (I’d wished he’d done what I asked him to do and that was to pay his house off but he didn’t unfortunately he is still paying it off) he is still trying to win the big one but on a tighter budget now he is retired and on a pension whenever I hear the song the gambler I think of my dad.

How crazy is that the song came out the year I was born my father had me in training for gambling at the age of five playing blackjack we started playing with bottle caps and then as the years went on and I got very good at the game we would play with 5 cent coins and then fake casino chips that he had collected over the years. When I turned 18 they built a Casino in my home town so that’s where I went for my 18th birthday I also had a birthday party with friends and family as well but I couldn’t wait to use my blackjack skills for real and I loved it I was hooked immediately I will say I have always been good at saving money and I did the same here I would only take my limit with me which was $50 and if I lost it then I would go home and if I won anything over $100 in a jackpot I would take it out and go home.

The most I ever won on blackjack was two lots of $500 in two weeks on the 7 system which was my fave to play as 7 is my lucky number the most I won on the pokies was $250 on the dolphin treasure machine I got all the treasure chests in a row triggering the free spins. The other thing I loved about going to the casino was spending time with my dad we would play and then have dinner afterwards it was a passion we both had and a way to communicate with each other.

When I met my man John when I was 26 things quickly changed with my gambling habit as he didn’t like gambling I did continue for a little while as my mother was now into playing the pokies as well but I eventually realized what gambling had done to my father and the family and how much of a hold it had on him and his life and what really could be lost and that is relationships (which is ultimately what happened over time) which to me is way more important than money (I would rather pay off a house than try and win a jackpot that may never happen).

I still do play but only for fun not for real money (the only way I would play for real again would be if I was in Las Vegas) My fave site to play on is https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwigzcam3pPUAhXFW7wKHSS5D2EQFggnMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vegasslotsonline.com%2Ffree%2F&usg=AFQjCNGT4XULG-QNkK_rsS6c6rktreBPYg&sig2=6Ve9n3CeK_9YtKaKWYHW-Q

I only play the demo versions for free and I only play every now and then for fun and my man doesn’t mind that as it only uses internet data and not real money I also sometimes play pokies, blackjack and poker online mostly on Facebook.

That’s where I will leave it as I’m off to play for fun and remember please gamble responsively it’s not worth losing the people and things you love the most in your life oxox.

 

Despacito

This is the new no 1 song here in Australia the remix which is the actual no 1 song features Justin Bieber I love the party vibe this song and video has it reminds of Lambada and any Zumba songs which I also love makes me want to go back in time to the clubs and dance up on the podiums again 🙂

Despacito means Slowly in Spanish.

I love that vinyl is back in a big way my fave vinyl record back in the 80’s was the ghost-busters movie soundtrack I was obsessed with that movie I had a t-shirt which I wore everywhere lol. What was your fave vinyl record from back in the day ?

 

I’m The One

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.
