When a weekend becomes a long weekend

I have to start off with apology, I haven’t been very interactive this weekend. I will say that I’m going to try and go over your posts from this weekend, but I can’t make any promises.

This weekend, have been a really weird one. My baby brother was able to finally come over from his state to ours, and we met his really lovely partner. However, Sydney’s COVID has really taken off, and not in a good way. Neither myself or my brother live in Sydney, but we do have family in Sydney. Today over 600 healthcare workers are now in quarantine.

What is frustrating about the Sydney/NSW situation. Since the beginning of COVID. NSW/Sydney leaders, news “journalists”, media personalities from VICTORIA, including Government in Canberra. Have been putting down Victoria and Melbourne, they’ve literally been calling NSW the “Gold Star” standard and they even said that the NSW state leader “saved” Australia. All these people are now starting to delete their tweets, but we wont forget. Once you tweets, it’s out there. They can’t delete the whole “the woman who saved Australia” (from what we still don’t actually know) because that was a whole news, front cover page.

Also, this weekend, I realise how bad my Gran’s dementia has gotten and how bad it is. This is a woman who went overseas to America, to help AIDS and HIV victims, during that pandemic. She then travelled America, in her 50’s alone. She run two libraries, watching over one when they had to move locations. She just knew things, she attuned me to do Reiki … Too scared to be alone in her home for over 10 years. It sad and really weird.

Seriously, I would still prefer cancer over dementia/Alzheimer. What makes it extra frustrating, if you go and talk to her, she seems fine. She can still speak eloquently still, so trying to get a stranger to see that, trying to convince people she needs help, they just don’t believe you, lol. Even her health is fine, her blood tests are good, she’s still got good bone density, and she’s in her 80’s. Yet, she’s constantly calling my mum and my Aunt, and my Uncle’s partner (who lives in Sydney) and she’s crying. I’ve started calling her to give my mum and aunt a break, and I’m thinking of staying a few days.

The biggest problem, is she lives far away, and I don’t drive. Once I leave, she’ll forget I was there. But I would be doing it for my mum and Aunt. Too give them a break. When someone’s there, she’s fine. At the same time though, when she’s had no visitors over that day, that’s when she seems to get lonely and upset? It’s almost like her mind remembers someone was there, but she’s all alone again, and then gets up. Whereas, when she’s had no one over that day, it’s like everything is normal. Well “normal” for her.

Then, my cousins partner had a fall, and when she woke up she couldn’t remember short term stuff. She has three youngish children. 13 and under.

This all happened on the weekend my brother came over and we meet his new partner. His new partner is completely lovely though, and he went through something similar with his own Nan. Which is what got me thinking about staying with her for a few days. She’ll forget I was there, the moment I step out the door. It’s more about me being there, so she’s not so lonely. So she’s not constantly ringing people.

Happy Hot Cross Bun Day and long weekend to some

Just a quick little message, in the past I usually write a whole blog post about hot cross bun day and all the different religions and tradition behind it. This year though, I just wanted to keep it light. I’m going to keep it light by asking:

Plain

Sultana/Currant

Fruit/Fruit Peel

Please discuss in the comments!

Find some yummy recipes to make your own hot cross buns at Taste.com (Also if anyone could tell me where I can find polls, that would be great!)

Here’s to the freaking weekend

long weekend

It’s another long weekend here in Australia! What do you like to do with your long weekends? Do you like to do some gardening, shopping, get your creative juices flowing, go on a short holiday perhaps? My family is all coming from interstate this weekend to celebrate my Aunt’s birthday…So I may not be posting or replying as fast this weekend.

So raise your glasses!

A long weekend…

So it’s a long weekend here in the Down Under country and I have got a few things happenings this week, seeing people that I haven’t seen in quite a while. (Which had nothing to do with my previous relationship, I just haven’t seen these people all year).

However yesterday was the last time I have ever expected to “talk” (I use that term very loosely, very hard to have a conversation with someone who wont talk back) or see my ex ever again. There was one question that I needed an answer too and he did give it. I think though he’s answer didn’t really explain why he had started to treat me so badly AFTER we broke up. I have never before had to beg anyone to talk too me and I have never had to stop being friends with an ex so soon after we broke up. I have honestly been appalled and disgusted by my ex’s actions, but when people ask me why do I think he’s done it…All I can say is…I honestly don’t know.

What I can say though with 100% certainty is that it is on him and it is absolutely not a reflection on me or the type of person I am. I feel so happy about this. For 30 years I have struggled to feel good about myself and I can finally be at a place where I can say “Nope, it’s definitely you”lol…I am not a bad person and do not deserve to be treated as such, I might like you, but I like myself best =D
