Firstly, do not panic if you see a lot of “Happy Fathers Day” on posts today…It’s just in Australia (I think).
Just like Mother’s Day it is not observed as a public holiday in Australia. However, a lot of businesses are closed on Sunday, mainly retail being opened still. However a lot of people take their children to parks, zoos maybe the movies. My partner and I went to the movies yesterday to see “The Meg” and there were so many fathers with their sons, I wonder how that went.
Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, but especially mine =P Too all the step-dads, the furbaby dads, the adopted dads, a special heart for the Dads no longer here💝, the Dads that don’t babysit their kids ~.^ The new Dads, the Dads who are now “GreatDads, The “Dads” that step up…And if you all see a “special person day” cake…Don’t get it if you don’t want it -.- My Dad is a special person ~.^ hehe
It’s finally starting to feel like Spring is finally becoming upon us! Apparently as well the first calendar day of Spring isn’t necessarily the “first day of Spring”.
The last two days have been sunny from morning to evening, although the air is very chilled still…
So what is happening this weekend?
Well the big news that down under we have Fathers Day on Sunday the 3rd of September. So please don’t be alarmed if you suddenly see all these Fathers Days posts all over the place, it’s probably not happening in your country, just some. I am actually celebrating Fathers Day on the Saturday, because I’m working on the Sunday -.- That wasn’t my fault and I honestly thought that my Dad wasn’t going to come down until his birthday (he lives about a three hour drive away) which is at the end of September.
Last weekend was a particularly bad weekend, I was abused all weekend about how I didn’t “respect” them, which is a joke since pretty much so far 3/4 quarters of my life he never wanted anything to do with me. When I was a kid he would disappear for weeks, drunk. When I was a teenager he would abandon us to try and hurt my mother (because hurting my mothers children was such a turn on =/)…Drunk…Now in my adult years he “demands” that he is personally invited to everything, and then pulls out every time and a few days later, we all get threatening messages,
Yet, he’s done nothing wrong to us, he doesn’t deserve to be treated that way…Who in HELL is this guy kidding?!!!
Who is this person? My “father”.
The reason I am now writing posts like these. I am tired of being threatened and abused. Does my father have a clue how lucky he is that my siblings and I even bother still talking to him as already is? I am tired of being ashamed like I’ve done something wrong, he should be the one to be ashamed! Not US!
This is it though, all my life I’ve been ashamed when people have told me that I deserve to get hit and have partners stand by and do and say nothing when there friends attack me over nothing. I mean literally nothing, I asked them what I had done to them…No response. Why do I always end up being the one that feels ashamed? These guys are a joke!
Yeah, that’s gonna stop…I’m not having another 30 years of this.
So here we are with my second Magical Monday…Even if no one else enjoys these, I have been!lol…It’s been great looking at all these different characters that I have fallen in love with over the years.
My next choice is probably putting together a bunch of species of characters together…The Lion!
I’m not talking about in the biblical sense, but two of my most favourite characters of my entire life are Mufasa (The Lion King) and Aslan (Narnia). I love Lions, I love their sense of their pride and how they take care of one another (except when new male lions takeover of course). I have seen so many video’s lately of these big and powerful beasts playing gently with the likes of humans.
The death of both Mufasa and Aslan (or near death) still after nearly 30 years can make me cry! I love the strength that both these characters have in taking care of their respective families. I could never ever choose between the two, I always wanted Alsan to come and take me away and I always wanted Mufasa to be my Dad!…(I really do love you still Dad though ~.^). In fact I have got the Lion King on DVD but I have never watched it because I know I’ll cry, lol.
Mufasa comes from the movie “The Lion King” which was released in 1994 (exactly 20 years ago) and produced by Walt Disney Studios. Mufasa is introduced at the beginning of the film as the King of a kingdom called “Pride Rock”. The movie is mainly based around Mufasa’s cub “Simba” and what happens to him after Mufasa is ‘murdered’ by Simba’s Uncle Scar.

Aslan is one of the main characters of the series “The Chronicles of Narnia”, he is the only character to show up in every single one of the seven books. It is fairly well-known that Aslan is based on the Christian idol ‘Jesus’. Aslan is a talking Lion of the mystical land ‘Narnia’ and is a leader and has many followers including: humans, mermaids, centaurs, Dwarfs…Just to name a couple! As gentle as he may seem, Aslan is never referred to as a ‘tamed lion’ because he can be as dangerous and extremely powerful. A lot of people believe that “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” is the first book in the series, this is not true. Although the author, C.S. Lewis wrote “The Magicians Nephew” sixth, it is actually a prequel to the “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe” and explains how Narnia was created.
