2019

Basically I just wanted to do a catch up and share type post…See how myself and yourselves are finding 2019. I saw with January it was very long for some and felt like we were still stuck in 2018.

Too break it down shortly for myself. The year started off extremely well.

I actually felt good, I able to come off my anxiety medication, if I wanted too. So instead of just going cold turkey and coming straight off them, I lowered the dosage. I was thinking once I finished the packet I currently had that was going to be it. My work was busy again and I was getting to work every single day, well Monday-Friday.

A cup of tea and reflection

So it’s pretty much already been the first full day of 2018 and do I feel any different? As I sit here, with my first cup of tea for the morning…I take time to reflect.

  • I didn’t drink or anything, but I didn’t get up until 11am this morning. Someone in the area had their “doof doof” music on until 3am! So as my Pa would say “that’s the whole day gone!” Suddenly I understand this saying! It definitely does feel like I’ve wasted a lot of the day.
  • A lot of the stuff that I need to get the year started is at my Mums house, but I’m at my partners house. So I’ll have to wait until tomorrow to get it…BUT…I still have things I can use at my partners house…So NO excuses!
  • I am glad that I went and posted my “Not quiet a resolution” on Facebook. I have had such a positive response and of course the people who were never there are suddenly “concerned”. I’m not dealing with them for the moment. I shouldn’t have to tell them “I was in hospital” to my “best friends” for them to notice me. They honestly make me feel like I’m 5 again wanting attention, which in turn makes me feel a like I am a really crappy friend.

Excuse me…I need to finish this cup of tea (that I got for Christmas) and have another nap,lol

Share Your World .. July Week 2017

Share Your World

Share Your World…July 24, 2017

(I feel like I should explain here why my title say July Week 4 and the link say “July 24th. You see Cee’s Photography posts the Share Your World questions on the Monday, but I tend not to get around to them until The Thursday. I just felt that it would be a little confusing if I posted Mondays date on a Thursday.)

List some of your favorites types of teas.

I love the usual black tea with milk, I usually have that a couple of times a day. The others I’ll have, I usually am not very feeling when I have them. I have just lemon tea, so literally just a cut up lemon, soaking in hot water. The other two teas that I drink when I’m not feeling well. That can be either when I have a cold or a “self-inflicted” type illness. I guess the other tea that I enjoy is “Chai Tea”, I have that maybe once or twice a year. I usually have it when I want to drink something sweet, but I don’t want to be feel unhealthy either.

If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

I think it would have to be the yellow/amber light on a traffic light. It’s a kind of traffic sign right? I feel like I’m constantly having to slow down, even though I really don’t want too and then have to stop, even though I really don’t want too. I want to keep going, I don’t want to stop, because when I stop I’m not making money,lol. I don’t have the ability to either keep going or just take off.

What are a couple of things could people do for you on a really bad day that would really help you?

  • Bake me a lasagna!
  • Not pay me out while I hug my plushies =P
  • Not keep talking to me once the ear phones have gone in!

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Wooo, this is a good one. There are quiet a few things I would love to be able to do. I would love to be a Gymnast. They are incredible, they are so athletic and I love the whole jumping and making it look flawless and like it’s no effort.

Have a cup of tea with me?

Everyone who read my Blog a bit will know how obsessed I am with Wild Earth #safarilive live stream dream. Mainly taken place in Djuma within the Sabi Sands. Now they’ve started selling merchandise and I finally got my hands on a piece of it!

2017-01-31-22-08-49

It is my own Safari Live mug/cup and I couldn’t be happier. I got in a greyish colour, because I anticipate drinking lots of tea and coffee and there will be lots of dredge marks on it. I have a couple of white cups and they just look messy after a while.

The only question that I have remaining is which book do I read while sipping from my new glorious cup? The front runner is the book that I have been reading the most at the moment and that is “Doctor Who: The Shakespeare Notebooks”. It’s the one I’ve been reading the most, but I really want to get started on Jodi Picoult “Small Great Things“. I’ve had it since Christmas and I haven’t even started it, I’ve had so many others from Christmas as well. Then there’s the new books I just got this week from Ellen Dugan called “Book of Witchery: Spells,Charms and Correspondences for every day of the week”.

I’ll guess you’ll just have to see and wait!

Share Your World … Week 21

Share Your World … Week 21

What is your favorite go to beverage?  Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)

If I had to choose from all of those it would have to be a nice cup of tea. Tea just always makes me feel better, it’s always a nice drink during Winter and when you are feeling poorly. Even during Summer, tea always seem like a good choice. It’s just so soothing.

Can you change a car tire?

No,lol

Are you a listener or talker?

I am definitely a listener, I am usually the quietest in all of the group I’m in. Sometimes I’m even an “unwilling” listener. You know the types you don’t want to  or can’t deal with people that day, but they don’t notice the little signs that you keep putting out.

Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?

I would rather have no internet, because at least with a cell phone I could keep in contact with everybody still. I could with the internet, but not everyone has a computer or something like an internet connection. Nearly everyone I know though has some sort of phone. I also find having a cell phone is much more handier in an emergency.

Tea and Consent – YouTube

I saw this on my Facebook feed (you can still find some interesting topics on there…sometime ~.^) If you don’t mind I am going to go and have a cup of tea, because I want too ~.^

If you were on a debate team, what general subject would you relish debating?

Something to do with popular culture I think, I am one of those people who doesn’t believe in myself enough to know what I know…If that makes sense,lol

What’s your strongest sense?

Listening, definitely listening. Even when it’s not a topic that I’m interested in. Everyone is always going on about how I’m a great listener. Hey, I try my best. I don’t think that we listen enough these days. I don’t mean either, actually listening with our ears, but listening to what people are NOT saying as well.

What would you name the autobiography of your life?

Oh this is a good one! I actually really had to think about this one…Oh I know! It’s a quote my Gran wrote about me “A rare as the Unicorn, is the Maiden of fair spirit”.

List your favorite flavors or types of tea.

  • Earl Grey
  • Black tea
  • Lavender
  • Green Tea
  • Chai tea =P

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!

Share Your World … Week 17

Share Your World – 2015 Week #17

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

I LOVE the smell of a nice smelling man! That aftershave, phew! I can be completely involved in something else and not concentrating and some guy walks past me and he smells good, I always look!

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

Long hair! My hair is pretty much a little bit more than halfway down my back, the closest that I have ever come to having it short was my mum “accidentally” cut my hair unevenly and we had to cut it up to my shoulders to make it short. I know that everyone would love to seem me with some sort of pixie hair cut, but it is never going to happen…NEVER!

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

Most of my things I like to plan as much as is humanly possible. As the years have gone on though I’ve learnt to relax more. The only time I like to stick to a plan is when I have something booked in and the time, place (etc) can’t be rearranged, then I stick to the plan. If it’s something though like just going out to have a few drinks with some friends, I can “go with the flow”.

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

When the weather is perfect, I like to take a cup of tea and read my book =P Hey, it’s outside! = Outdoor activity.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I think that this week will be an interesting…Lets go with the flow =D
