Do you snore? How do you know it, if you do?
I think I do, but not all the time. It seems to happen a lot when I have a cold, or the weather is a bit colder. My partner told me, he’s definitely a snorer though. Sometimes it drives me so nuts, so I have to wake him. At the moment I haven’t been, because he’s just bought a house and he’s just started work again for the year (he’s a teacher). So if he can sleep I let him.
What do you find funny? (credit for question given to Rory and this post in particular:
What was the last furry thing you touched?
Well considering I’m sleeping when this will be posted, I have a couple of plushies on my bed. So, I’ve probably hugged them before I fell asleep, or at least laid down with them in some way.
How do you handcuff a one-armed man?
Where did this question come from this week?lol. I really had to think about it. The only thing I could think of was to cuff them to the top of their bottoms? If they have hook or something? But then what if they don’t. You’d have to handcuff them to yourself, maybe? I think I’ve seen on the tv them doing that, but mainly on tv shows and the movies. Whether or not that happens in real life, I’m not sure. I watch a UK show called “Death in Paradise” absolutely love it. There was one episode where the lead detective was handcuffed to a criminal, and the criminal was killed…while handcuffed to the detective.
An Attitude of Gratitude
This week I challenge you to list five things you’re grateful for. Credit to this goes to Sadje ( https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/ ) because she’s started a challenge to do that daily. #5 Things. Daunting? Well it is to me! I’d have trouble finding five one time, let alone each day.
- As always I am very grateful for both the furbabies being here still. They both have different issues and my mum is always talking about how the Chihuahua is probably going to die soon. I hate it when she talks about it, because yes, she is slowing down, and she’s completely deaf. But she’s fine. I think she’ll be good for at least another year. The way my mum talks though, you’d think it’s going to be next week and I hate it. The cat is still twitching, but no fits. So I suspect he will be with us for a long time yet,lol.
- For all the work I’m getting at the moment. I found out our CEO really doesn’t like Casuals. So end of March, I have NO idea what’s going to happen. I’m working a lot, so making a lot of money. Which I need for the dentist and my partners moving house. His mortgage brother underestimated how much one fee will be. It’s going to be about $6000. SOo I might need to help him.
- My mum. My mum offered my partner some money when the mortgage broker forgot a pretty big fee (over $6000). Even my own partners family offered him nothing, my Mum did. Even though she can’t afford it. She knows he’ll be able to pay her back pretty quickly.
- Someone made the movie LotR and The Hobbit in my life time.
- David Suchet … Now HE is an actor!

When was the last time you face palmed? (for those who aren’t familiar with what that is, here’s a visual for you: )
I’m not sure. Mainly because I feel like it happens a lot these days,lol.
When is censorship warranted? Ever?
The only times I can really think that censorship might be alright is when it involves protecting a child.
If there were commandments for the modern day world, what should (could, would) some of them be? Get creative!
Be kind to each other.
I think that’s it really,lol
What did you Google last?
Chamomile Tablets. I just had this sudden thought that maybe they would help me better. Whenever I have chamomile tea, I feel instantly better. My anxiety lessens and I stress less. So why not the same with tablets? Wish me luck!
Gratitude is an Attitude:
This week I’m not asking for shares of things people are thankful for, I’m doing a re-blog and point to Beckie’s Mental Mess blog. She’s started a whole ‘gratitude movement’ with her new weekly challenge: “Pop of Positivity”. Here’s a link to her first post in this effort:
You might want to check that out!
Have a fabulous week!

If you had to sum up the whole human species in 3 words, what would those words be?
Heart, Evil and Weird.
Where is the strangest place you’ve relieved yourself? Obviously in an emergency situation.
I don’t think I’ve relieved myself some weird before. I have had to relieve myself a couple of times over the years on long walking tracks. But I don’t know if that’s “weird”…I mean, I’m out in nature…As “God” intended? It’s funny because a lot of my anxieties have to do with bathroom situations. Someone wouldn’t let me out of their new car, so I could run into a shop, or even a public bathroom. It’s almost like they want me to “let loose” in their new car? I didn’t, but it was really close. I was literally banging on the door to be let out. Ever since, I hate travelling, I hate being “trapped” and being in a car, or any transport. So who am I too judge?lol…Everybody does it!
What is the worst smelling place you’ve ever been?
I’ve never been to it, but my Aunt used to live near a mushroom farm. You didn’t even have to drive directly by it, to smell it. It didn’t put me off eating them either…But the smell, altogether, was atrocious.
How drunk is drunk enough?
When you blackout and you can’t remember what happened. That only happened to me once and I realised it was also connected to jagerbombs. As soon as I drink one, I’ll be sick about 30 minutes later. So I had two one time and blacked out. I was lucky that I was with people I could trust. I had taken a top off while I was asleep BUT I had a strappy top on still. The one I wore underneath the other top, but to this day I don’t remember taking off the outer top.
Gratitude Is An Attitude!
If you’d like, please list five things that are priceless to you.
- Some members of my family,lol
- My boyfriend =D
- The furbabies…But they’re family too really,lol
- There are some bits and bobs. For example, the last birthday card my Grandfather gave me before he passed.
- A good book and good music…Sometimes at the same time!

What makes you laugh?
Oh, so many things make me laugh. I’ve been holding onto them so much these days. I always tape a couple of comedies, just to make sure that I have something to laugh with. At lot of the “laugh out loud” shows, they make on the television. I love those. My brother has a fabulous witty biotchy side, I wish I had it!
What’s the world coming to? (Credit to Mel of Crushed Caramel…)
Doom and Gloom!lol…Just kidding. I think we’ve hit a bump, but I think after this is all over. Changes will definitely take place. There’s no way we can just “go back”.
In one sentence sum up the Internet.
A place to communicate.
If over time you replace parts on a car, at what point does it stop being the same car you bought? How many parts do you need to replace to make it a new car?
I have no idea how many parts a car even has,lol.
Gratitude is an attitude. Yea or nay? Explain your viewpoint please!
Oh I absolutely believe it is, sometimes it’s a case of fake it till you make it.
Nurture Thursday – Flip the Script
My work place is going through a big work review type thing. Jobs will be changed, some will probably retire. So it’s been interesting to see how different people have reacted. There’s one staff member who never shows up and is always “sick” when she watches over the entry test. She’s not doing the exam, she just has to sit there. Then you have another who shows up still. Always wanting to help. Always there, never sick. Yet, they irony is because he hasn’t been at this particular campus as long as the other worker. He’s probably going to be swapped first. Either way, he’ll be fine, the other wont, because she will still have to watch over test that she’ll always be ‘sick’ for.
You have to flip that script, change your attitude and your perspective to the problem. You can do it!!!
I was nominated by the awesome that is Bereaved Single Dad.
What we are doing is to think of three quotes that we love or agree with and it’s all about the attitude. As someone who is trying to get a better attitude, I have found a few that I just love.
Nurturing – Thursday – Attitude
In the immortal words of Captain Jack Sparrow
This is actually a really great one for me this week. I ended up having a lot of issues with my anxiety and I had to visit the Doctors. One of the questions that he had to ask was I irritable? Normally I am not irritable, but I did realise that this week I had been. However, I knew it was my issues that were upsetting me. When dealing with other people, I had to meditate myself to not become irritated with them. My issues are not their issues. Which made me also think of my ex friends. How everything is about her. When she accused me of things, it was because and I quote “That’s how I feel when I’m single” Even though the way I thought was the complete opposite. How she would rather hear that we are unhappy in our relationships when she’s single…Still not a good enough excuse to blame me for why her boyfriend treats her badly?
This year has been such a great year for myself, mentally, things would have crushed me a year barely bother me any-more. Although I do have days where I get down, as we all do, I feel that I know have the tools to help myself get through those days…As well as having the “right” people in my life, instead of the ones that are just…there…You know what I mean?

What is your favorite comfort snack food?
Definitely Nacho Cheese Dorito chips! Summer or Winter, they are my favourite!
If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove nothing, which store would you pick? (except food or beverage)
Oh wow! I can’t remove anything? Maybe like a toy store then, so I could play with all the things but I wouldn’t really have a place to put them. So I could have play and then leave…Possibly leaving someone else to clean up the mess.
What was the largest city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?
That would have to be between Arizona and Melbourne. They are both completely different but they are both different ways. Melbourne’s is mostly city and buildings (which are beautiful) but Arizona is mainly big due to their landscape.
Finish this sentence: It has recently come to my attention that …. People these days appear to be a lot more “self-involved” then I remember them being. There is a lot more “I am right, you are wrong, no I will not discuss it”.
