The week that was No:20


Another Sunday and that means the start of another week that was post. I woke up feeling sick so didn't go out.

This Sunday it is Mother's Day and I received bath stuff off Natasha and a book off Kathy-Lee and from Jessica gave me a new laptop and a new mobile phone.

Leo bought his mum something from the Mother's Day stall at school but Blain didn't get his mum anything.

Tim had someone ring about the car (Falcon)first he was going to come look at it but then said he was too far away, after some back and forward he said he would give Tim what he wanted and would arrange for someone to come and pick it up. I said NO that is suss and most likely a scam.

Monday I woke up feel ok much better then yesterday Leo was dropped off at 6.45am along with a pair of gloves Jessica made for me, however, they are a bit small or too tight. I said I may be able to wear them in.

After dropping Leo off we had to go and look at Jess's place for her house key which she couldn't find she thought it had fallen off her key-chain. We didn't find it so she said she would call in and get the spare key, of course as she was getting out of the car she found it in her pocket.

I then went to aqua after getting home, I had eggs for breakfast and I throw a load of clothes in the washing machine before vacuuming the loungeroom.

Tim hand someone else ring about the car and this person was only 20 minutes away and came with his wife to look at it ask questions took it for a test drive. After some discussion they agreed on a price. So things look good but we will see.

Tuesday Tim asked Natasha to wash the bathroom floor which she did, for some reason was blaming Leo saying that he had pissed on the floor. I do not believe he did that.

Tim has been on the phone about the sale of the Falcon

Wednesday saw me wake up tired, but I still went to aqua, still no idea what is going on with the Falcon, Tim said the guy will be here tomorrow afternoon to get it.

Thursday morning, afternoon and night has passed and guess what the Falcon is still here......lol

Friday is shopping day and I like shopping day, getting out of the house, spending money, looking around shops, running people over while on mobility scooter. I also like seeing my mum on Friday morning.
Jess and I called in at the school and dropped off a Webster Pack, while there Jess asked for Leo to be told that he had to walk home alone.

However they didn't tell him and he was waiting outside the post office till 3.30pm, when someone in the office realised they hadn't passed on the message and rang Jess and she said to check outside the post office. Where they found him waiting for his friend. I am so pissed off.

Guess what the Falcon has now been sold and is gone at last.

Saturday morning Jess had to call in to get dressed for work. We had to vote, Tim drove down to the school I took the walker and a lady handing out pamphlets came and asked if I would like someone to bring the forms to me so I didn't have to struggle in to the voting area.

Then we went to the RTA as the guy who bought the Falcon finely took it, so Tim had to do the notice of disposal.

We then went to Officeworks so I could have the stuff we need for Leo's high school application printed.

Leo came with us. He also went out with Papa this afternoon, over to my parents house to get something.

Well now it is time to post this and start another week that was post.

Gross Tuesday No 13


Well here we are at another Tuesday and what a lovely Tuesday
it is weather wise it is a pleasant 20°c outside. So on this lovely Tuesday I will share some gross facts.

When they are finished with their webs, spiders eat the silk to recycle it.

Tarantulas can live for up to 30 years.

Female nursery web spiders often eat the males after mating.

Spiders have huge brains for their size, some have them spilling over into their legs.

The crab spider can change colour to match its surroundings, to help catch its prey.

The largest spider in the world is the Goliath bird eater tarantula with a leg span of 30cm or 12inches.

Did you know No: 20


Good morning, yes it is morning still, just.........

Well it's Monday so it is did you know day, the day I share useless and trivial facts, which may or may not be 100% true.

The Jews and the early Christians started the day at sunset,that's weird. Anyway this means Christmas Eve was in fact the first part of Christmas Day. It was only later, how much later I do not know as the damn book doesn't tell me, anyway as I was saying it was at a later time that it came to mean the day before.

The longest time a person has been in a coma and woken up is 37 years.

The Moon is one million times dryer than the Gobi Desert and weighs about 81 billion tons, how the hell do they know that.

The most sensitive finger on the human body is the index finger.

The thumbnail grows the slowest.

Now to post this while it is still morning.

The week That WAs No:19


Well Sunday is here again so I am starting another week that was post. It is a cool and wet day.

Tim off on Monday, he had a doctors appointment and for some unknown reason he wanted me to go with him, only to have me wait in the car. We than went to Belmont hospital so he could pick up the prep solution for his colonoscopy on Tuesday.

At 6pm he had to drink the stuff which resulted in him being up most of the night on Tuesday morning he said he felt sick in the gut so he didn't drink the morning solution.
He was home by 3pm and felt fine but he can't drive for 24hrs which I knew but when I thought about telling him, I decided not to bother as I know Tim well enough to know he would shrug it off and say he would see how he felt on the day. However, because the hospital told him he couldn't drive he had Wednesday off as well.

Wednesday I at last went back to aqua which I enjoyed a few people commented that it was nice to see me back.

Thursday it was cold enough when I got up that I put on my warm dressing gown.

Friday I went shopping at Charlestown Square saw mum for breakfast along with Dawson, Natasha had to pick them up as Sandra had a Mother's Day breakfast at the school.

It is so cold this afternoon that I had to get out my really warm blue pyjama pants and a long sleeve singlet.

Saturday morning I was woken at 8am by Natasha knocking on my bedroom window, I got out of bed stood for a moment thought I dreamt it so got back into bed and Tim got up to let her in. She was dropping off shopping she did for me yesterday.

At around 9.30am Kathy-Lee arrived with more shopping for me, I received a text message from the supermarket telling me that they were unable to take my payment. So I logged into my bank and discovered that I was 60cents short, I was lucky that Kathy was able to pay for it and I transferred the money back to her.

Also while here she told Tim her car was over heating turned out she needed water and coolant, the car took 3.5 litres of water the max it takes is 5 litres.

I also asked Natasha & Kathy to put another blanket on the bed as Tim has been cold at night.

Sunday morning I was still in bed when Natasha arrived and she gave me my Mother's Day present which was bath stuff.

Poem Thursday No:12


Good morning for some reason I forgot to do a post yesterday, I thought about it but just didn't get around to writing it.

Anyway it is now Thursday so here is today's little poem.

Flowers are lovely; love is flower like;
Friendship is a sheltering tree;
Oh, the joys that come down shower-like!

Gross Tuesday No 12


Good morning a coolish day in my opinion although Natasha & Tim think it's cold.

Well it is Tuesday so it is gross facts day.

Cockroaches can live for weeks without their heads

There are about 4,000 different species of cockroaches but only 30 are considered pests.

Cockroaches can rat just about anything, including glue, paper and soap.

They can survive for long periods of time without any food at all.

Insects and bugs can be useful in creating honey, wax, silk and other products.
