On this day


Good morning here we are at the 22nd day of September, 36yrs ago on this day I went from being a Jenkins to a Meadows.

I meet Tim on the 9th June 1983 in my parents lounge-room this was because we met through a dating agency. I knew by our next date that he was the man for me.

In September that year he tells me ha had invited a few mates to our engagement party. I looked at him and said “what” you haven't even asked me to marry you., he laughed took my hands and said but you will won't you. My reply was not the point but of course I will.

Our engagement party was paired with m

y 21st and held at my parents place, it was a good night ending around 3 or 4am although Tim crashed in the back of his panel van around midnight, after he fell asleep on the toilet. The last to leave were Tim's mates and a couple of gatecrashes as in neighbours from up the road.

We married on the 22nd September 1984 in St Alban's church in front of around 100 guests. The reception was held in the church hall back then my mum was involved with the church so we got a good deal.

I wore a dress that had been my aunt's wedding dress, I was never thrilled with the dress but said nothing, I also had no say in the wedding care which was a traditional fruit cake, I do not eat fruit cake.

I have wanted to renew my vows for many years but Tim has no interest in doing so.

Just another week

 A nice sleep in this morning got up at 7.30 just after I woke up and at the time Tim was getting up.

Tasha had been and tossed a load in the washing machine. I got the finished load out and tossed the second load in to wash for her.

Found 99+ messages on the family message group on good old Facebook. Read/listen to them all a lot about the ball incident.

Turned out a nice day all round.

The start of another working/school week here in Newie, going to be another warmish day.

Leo's driver drove down to the house as I wasn't there and this is the first day of the new routine and I was just leaving the house to take Leo up.

Been a very warm day, Leo arrived home at 3.26pm only 6 minutes after school got out.

Tim's youngest sister Diane who is intellectual disabled and has poor reasoning and is more like a child, has been arrested for refusing a Covid test in South Australia.

Seems she hooked up with a man who convinced her to travel to South Aus, they say she was groomed by the man who was arrested on paedophilia chargers.

We have very little to do with Diane by that I mean nothing.

A new day and I woke before the alarm again. I got up and dressed and found myself dripping in sweat even though it is far from hot.

Realised after Leo left that he didn't have his medication, I forgot why I do not know. Brian picked him up at the door at 8.10 earlier then I expected.

I decided to try and switch the phone cords around to see if the cordless would work and it did. I am happy, I did have to get Jess & Tasha to come and help me.

Tasha & Jess carried on like children, tickling each other and acting silly.

I woke with the alarm and found Tim was up and gone he had a 5.30am start.

This morning at 8.10am I went to get Leo for school, narrowly being missed by the bird. Brian arrived as we were headed up the driveway.

Tasha brought be 2 cupcakes made by Blain they were very yummy.

It has been a bloody warm day and I am in shorts, had to toss out a pair this morning as they felt a bit loose.

A very short chat to mum as Dawson arrived home and was on the phone to his mum and this caused mum to become distracted.

Up before the alarm but not dressed as Tasha is going to give me a shower after Leo leaves.

Had a nice shower, and Tasha changed the sheets.

Spoke to mum for an hour or so she was feeling lonely. Half an hour after I hung up from mum she rang back to tell me that Michelle had rang her for no reason she said by mistake and they talked for half an hour about nothing.

It has been a very warm day.

Tim home at 2pm a short day for him.

Awake at 5.33am got out of bed at 5.45 as I was awake and generally don't like staying in bed once awake. I managed to dress my bottom half before Tasha arrived, she did my top for me.

Tasha had to take Leo up as it was raining.

Stopped raining so I will be able to collect Leo this afternoon.

Didn't have much of a chat with mum as Dawson rang twice and then Dave rang.

Leo has gone to Kelli & Jono's for the weekend.

Thursday's words


If I Could


Published: August 2017

If I could catch a rainbow,
I'd do so just for you
So you could share its beauty
On the days you're feeling blue.

If I could, I'd buy an island
You could call it your very own,
A place to find serenity,
Where you could be alone.

If I could take your troubles
I'd throw them in the sea,
But all these things I'm finding
Are impossible for me.

'Cause I can't buy an island
Nor catch a rainbow fair,
So I'll just do what I do best:
Be someone who's always there.

Well Tuesday is here and it's another nice warm day, which means I am dripping in sweat on and off all day.

Tuesday is now indestructible stuff day and today it is the well known Superbug, we have all heard talk about this or that superbug.

A superbug is actually a disease causing bacteria that is resistant to run of the mill antibiotics.

The first antibiotics were developed back in 1928 based on natural germ-killing chemicals found in mould. Since then these drugs have saved millions of lives. The ability to cure bacterial illnesses and infections such as tetanus, tuberculosis, and even the plague.

The problem is there is often just a few bacteria that are tough enough to survive the antibiotics. As the others are killed the extra tough survivors become superbugs, a kind of super strong bacteria that antibiotics can't kill.

This means they can kill us, just like before we had antibiotics.

So you are wondering what to do to protect yourself , really..............

Every man and his dog know you need to wash your hands, use hand gel, clean surfaces regularly
