QUESTIONS:

  • Guns?   Are you pro or con?  Explain your point of view.

Oh wow, that is a … loaded … question so to speak! In theory I have no problem with guns. There’s that saying about how it’s not guns that kill, it’s the owner…Well, duh! In Australia we are doing pretty well when it comes to gun laws. People can still own guns, they just can’t own army type weapons, that can kill multiple people within a second. I don’t know anyone personally who owns a gun in Australia, well that I’m aware of anyway, but I know that you can. Just more like rifles and shot guns.

Some people say the same gun laws we have in Australia wont work in the US because the US is bigger than Australia, more population. Which may be true, but how is doing nothing working for them? The one thing I truly don’t understand about the US, why a lot of the 2A defenders, don’t want to try something…anything? It’s such a hard thing to wrap my head around. For example, the NRA tried to block a law that people who stalk and domestically abuse others, cannot own a gun. Why? They keep saying because it’s a misdemeanour, it’s not that serious. They WANT these stalkers and abusers to keep their guns because of “rights”. Why? I am sure in their heads they’re thinking “Well I’ve got a gun, I can just shoot them”…It’s not that simple, and if they shot them dead, they’d be charged with murder. Wouldn’t it just be better and make more sense to make sure stalkers/domestic abusers can’t have guns?

  • How would your country change if everyone, regardless of age, could vote?

Well that’s a lot of a question. Does this mean, should the terrible twos be able to vote? I know that this question is talked a lot about these days, especially with the #climatestrike and #marchforourlives kids. Then on the flip side of that you have the boys from Covington Catholic, would you really want boys like that voting? But then are those boys so different from adult Trump supporters?

  • What’s your cure for hiccups?

I don’t really have one to be honest. I kind of just keep letting it go and just hope that it goes away quickly.

  • What’s the coldest you’ve ever been?

I can’t remember an actual specific time when I’ve been the coldest I’ve ever been. It’s probably been any time though that I’ve hopped into bed when it’s been Winter. It is terrible when I first get into bed, I feel like the sheets are stabbing into my body,lol

Gratitude

If you would like, share a story, a photo or some thoughts on you may be thankful for this week! 

I am grateful for every single one of you. The bloggers that I follow and who follow me.

Winter Favourites

Australia is now heading more and more into Winter…Never fear though! Now it’s time to crack out those Winter Time Favourites!

Winter Clothing:

I have a weakness for beanies. I used to really like ear muffs, but for some really weird reason, they make me feel off balanced.

Do you have any favourite Winter clothing, or accessory? 

Winter Food:

I have a favourite REALLY bad comfort food Winter dish, that I just love and I probably wont eat this Winter, because my cholesterol will go out the roof!…It’s two minute chicken noodles AND mac ‘n’ cheese.

Do you have a favourite Winter food?

Winter Drink:

There is nothing better than, well I think, a nice hot cup of tea on a cold Winters night. I can’t really drink coffee anymore, it heightens my anxiety. I hate drinking anything cold, but sometimes I get sick of drinking just tea. I also love hot chocolate or cocoa with marshmallows. I’m very much a kid at still really,lol.

What are some of your favourite Winter Drinks?

Winter Activities:

Of course above all my favourite activity is reading and writing. However this year I am (if you’ve been a regular reader of mine) I am planning on starting to make my own Candles. Who knows? Maybe this will become my favourite Winter activity! Maybe I’ll do this for Winter and Autumn, something else for Summer and Spring? Let’s see!

Do you have any specific Winter activities?

Share Your World … Week 37

(I’m just warning you all, this ones a bit long!)

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewellery?

I don’t think that I have really ever owned a pet rock or jem that is Jewellery. I do remember once someone giving me a very pretty rock that was painted beautifully, but I never considered it to be a pet. I had a lot of plush toys, so I never really needed a rock pet, I guess?

What is your greatest strength or weakness?

Strength – A lot of people say that I am one of those people who is just there for others. I think it’s one of my strengths, sometimes I don’t even realise how weird it is how I’m there for people. One particular situation that stood out was after I broke up with an ex, there were all these girls who thought he was going to date them…And he didn’t, and they all came to me, trying to hurt me initially I guess, to get back at him? I managed to turn it around and ended up being their friend. I felt kind of bad for them really, he cheated on me with all these girls, but he also clearly made them feel like they were “the one”. He didn’t seem to really care how much he had led them on either. I helped them and I was over him before they were.

Weakness – As strong as I feel these days and I feel I can stand more on my own when it comes to my point of views and beliefs. I wish I just didn’t have so many “triggers”! There are some topics, especially on Facebook where I still get really wound up and get emotional with people and their comments, instead of just ignoring it. I recently unliked a page because of their refusal to even acknowledge, that men do in fact suffer from family and domestic violence.

What makes you feel grounded? 

Spending some times with my furbabies, they just want love really…Except for the cat, sometimes he just want food and for me to let him in and out of the house (we rent, so we can’t put in a cat flap). Other then them, I love having a shower and/or bath and listen to music that takes me away, like Enya, anything Celtic, anything “mythical”, if that is even a music genre,lol.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?

I think I would rather not eat cold food again, although a lot of salads are “cold”…Or are they more neutral? I love having hot food during Winter, it makes me feel warm on the inside, which then radiates through the rest of me. Whereas I don’t really feel like that with cold food, except for maybe ice blocks/ice cream.

Winter Drinks

We are now going through the middle of Winter and it is cold and I am not very good during the cold weather and I have been looking at some lovely hot, steamy drinks…So I am going to share some of them I am planning on making this Winter, I just have to figure out the amount that these recipes makes: What are some of your favourite Winter beverage recipes? any family favourites or classics?

Cinnamon Hot Chocolate Recipe

Mulled Wine *looks SO easy to make!*

Easy Nutella Dessert

Coffee Magic

I am so lucky today, the weather is horribly cold and wet outside and I have been suffering from my sciatica since yesterday (although the pain has lessened)…Luckily for me though I am not working today … YAY! So I am just sitting right now this Monday morning with a nice hot cup of coffee, with my puppy curled up to me…I do actually want to do a lot of cleaning today but I am worried about inflaming my sciatica again.

Did you know?: One of the recommended treatment for sciatica is bed rest, but not too long of bed rest! I find that when mine plays up, elevating my leg and having good posture is great.

Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?

If I need to quench a thirst the first drink that I will always go to is Water. I get really worried about dehydrating a lot. I’ve really started to see how beneficial drinking water can be over this past year.

What made you feel good this past week?

It’s actually been a pretty rotten couple of weeks to be honest, mainly because I’ve had no work shifts for two weeks now and it’s kind of depressing me. However, I have been doing little things here and there to make myself feel better. The main thing that made me feel better was renewing a lot of things, things I’ve been procrastinating.

When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?

This one depends on the weather. For example, during Summer I walk around barefoot, but during Winter I have been well-known to wear at least two pairs of socks. My feet can get really cold!

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

Always hot! I’ve just never gotten along with the cold. I get the whole icky sweaty thing, but the cold just seems to hurt my bones almost. Plus I find that most people want to actually do things when the weather is warmer. Since my birthday happens during colder temperature people bail on my birthday all the time. Last year I asked repeatedly if people were actually interested in coming and they all said yes, so I hired the huge pool room for 30 people and only 12 showed up -.- I had a good night, but I was so annoyed! I had to pay money to hire this room, it was so embarrassing!

The comfort in comfort food

In the land “Down Under” we are supposed to be in the middle of Spring at the moment, but today is feeling a little bit like Winter…It’s all grey and windy and it keeps raining. So I decided to have some of my most favourite comfort food for lunch…Yes…I went there! I am posting on social media what I am having for lunch.

The funny thing was having a hot drink and a hot lunch, made me all sweaty. I regret nothing though! McCain Pizza Toasties (Australia) are amazing since my readers in the Northern Hemisphere are currently actually heading towards their cold Winters, these is an amazing comfort food! There so quick to make as well! 45 seconds in the microwave and heat up in the toaster, that’s it!

First Day of Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring, and it’s really grey and cold outside, when it has been so pretty the rest of the week. Spring is my favourite time of the year and it’s here again! This Winter has felt so cold and grey for such a long time, I didn’t even have to put on my heater this morning to get ready =D Despite the horrible weather, it’s still kind of warm =D

Spring

Winter Heat

I HATE Winter, I swear it’s been so cold this year and I know that last weekend we had one of our coldest days is quiet a few years. This year has been particularly rough though. Last weekend was cold in Melbourne and when I came home it was freezing, much colder than Melbourne, which was odd. This weekend I spent the weekend with my partners family and I was freezing.

What do you all like to do when it’s cold? Generally if I’m by myself I’ll cuddle up with a blanket and luckily my puppy means that she loves sitting on my lap and is like a little water bottle. This weekend was horrible because there was no heating in the little granny flat we were in and it got below 0! I don’t deal well with the cold and I hate not being able to have a little heater around to just take the edge off while I get changed. My bones and everything just hurt. I hate it…

This is mainly a rant blog because it’s so cold and now I’m home and all warm and it does feel magical. I feel my body coming to life again.

Are you, my dear readers, a Winter or a Summer person…Or even a Spring or Autumn person?
