Here we are at Thursday, it has felt like a long week but really not any longer then any other week. I guess the restless I am feeling at night isn't helping either.

Once a pond a time, I went to bed fell asleep, woke up it was morning. Now I go to bed lay down feel like I can't breathe,get up walk around, go back to bed, tell myself too concentrate on my breathing, fall asleep, wake up look at the clock it's only been 2hrs. I get up go to the toilet, go back to bed, feel like I can't breathe and that I am restless, walk around the house try going back to bed, fall asleep wake up it's been another 2 bloody hours, repeat every 2hrs till morning. Such is my life

This morning I had a doctor's appointment and I asked him if it would be possible for me to take an extra tablet for my restlessness at night. He said I could try it from time to time but not every night, as that wouldn't be good for my long time health.

I hope next week I have no appointments it is the appointments that make the day/week seem so long.

What a week

What a week this is shaping up to be, yesterday I went to my aqua class I then find Jessica here when I got home and she wanted me to go to the RTA with her, on Saturday she bought a 2000 Toyota Camry for $1,300. It is a 5 speed manual or a 5 on the floor, Jessica has never driven a manual but wants to learn, so on Saturday & Sunday Tim spent hours helping her learn how to drive it. Tim has printed up a sign which he has taped to the back window saying “learning to drive a manual”. So anyway yesterday she went and changed the rego into her name.

She then used my computer to fill out the online application for her to have her dental surgery next month that took about 45 minutes and involved a lot of frustration which made me end up with a headache.

While she was doing that I rang to change my appointment for an MRI, the appointment was made for 7.30pm on the 21st and there is no way I could get there at that time. Well the woman I spoke to was pretty rude and snapped at me if I need a daytime appointment it won't be till February, I calmly said that will be fine I don't go back to see the neurologist till March.

Today I went with mum to her physio appointment that went well she doesn't need to go back again and mum asked what they thought of her driving, she was told there is physical reason why she cannot drive, this made mum happy.

Tomorrow I have my aqua class again and Thursday I have a doctor's appointment and Friday I have to go to the shopping centre as I do every Friday.

Lest we forget

The following are just bits I pinched from the internet.

The phrase "Lest we forget" is commonly used in remembrance services and commemorative occasions in English speaking countries, in particular Remembrance Day and ANZAC Day.

"Lestmeans something like "in case". For example, "We should close the door,lest the dog escapes" means, "We should close the door in case the dog escapes [through the open door]". The phrase "lest we forget" is most often used in ceremonies to commemorate wars, such as Remembrance Day in Canada.

Lest We Forget may refer to: "Lest We Forget (phrase)", a phrase in the poem "Recessional" by Rudyard Kipling. "Ode of Remembrance", United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

No More Driving For Me

Well as you all noticed I didn't do a post yesterday, I was just in a slump yesterday I felt really down the reason was because yesterday morning after dropping Leo off at school I had to see my GP to get my yearly medical form filled in so I can continue to drive.

Well he wouldn't fill it in saying I really shouldn't be driving so that left me feeling depressed, Tim and some other family members say it will be ok that either Tim or Tasha will drive me around. I wonder how long it will take till they start complaining about driving me places.

I go to my aqua class twice a week and to Charlestown Square once a week, Natasha had already said she will take Leo to and from school but next year Natasha wants to do a course at Glendale Tafe she wants to get qualified in home care to enable her to be better able to care for me.

This morning Leo said when I drove him to school, why can't I drive him and just not tell anyone. I had to explain to him that isn't possible.

I don't know why but last night when I went to bed I felt like I couldn't breath when I laid down this frightened Leo and he got Tasha who came and checked my BGL it was good but I was sweating even though it was cold so she turned the air con on in the bedroom and helped me get my Cpap mask on and told me to concentrate on my breathing.

I did manage to go to sleep but I had a restless night waking a lot, I hope I sleep better tonight.

Indestructible Creatures/Hagfish

Hi there everyone, here we are at Wednesday, it's a wet Wednesday after a few really hot days it is now much cooler.

Anyway since it is Wednesday is is indestructible creature day and today’s creature is the Hagfish, heard of it? Nope, me either.

The Hagfish is an eel like creature, a pink, plump boneless fish that lives on the seabed, it has a mouth lined with evil looking teeth that it uses to munch through unfortunate prey. A hagfsh swims through the water by waving its paddle like tail.

When it is danger it releases a mixture of chemicals and very fine threads from its body, these react with seawater to make a gloopy slime that puts predators off. If you out one hagfish in a bucket of water, it can easily turn the whole lot into an incredibly think, stringy, stretchy slime in seconds.

If despite the slime a predator manages to grab a hagfish, it has another trick up its sleeve. It can tie itself in a knot then slide the knot along its body to push itself free of its enemy’s grip.

They live for about 40 years in the ocean but only 17 years in a protected environment such as an aquarium.

Gross Facts No:5 Bacteria

Hello everyone it is a lovely day here in Newie was suppose to be 36°c but it is only 24°c so a nice temp not too hot or too cold..

I had a rocky start to the day but it was my own fault I took my insulin and my morning medication and forgot to eat so my blood glucose level dropped too low and I was feeling in a bad way by the time I got back from driving Leo to school. It didn't help that I went to the shops before I came home.

Let's move onto some gross facts.

Lots of bacteria live in your armpits and feet, they live off the sweat.

A single gram of fluid in your large intestine contains 10 trillion bacteria.

There are about 3000 microbes (tiny bacteria) on every square centimetre of a desk.

If you could get bacteria to line up in a row, 10,000 would fit across your fingernail.

A piece of chicken that is starting to smell is covered with at least 10 million bacteria per square centimetre.

A kitchen stink is home to 10,000 times more germs than a toilet.

One bacterium can turn into millions of bacteria in less than a day.

Hot water is much better than cold water at getting rid of bacteria from your hands. Most bacteria are frazzled by the heat.

Did you know No: 28

Here we are at another Monday been a pretty hot Monday as well, we had a stinking hot weekend, although I have now turned the air con off and open both the front and back doors so there is a nice breeze blowing through.

Anyway since it is Monday it is did you know day, so here are this weeks facts.

In most cases, if you have two objects equal in all respects, except one is white and the other is black, the black one will appear to be smaller.

Snoopy wasn't in the first Peanuts cartoon, he appeared in the third one

If we were to attempt manned exploration of t he nearest star system to Earth with the same kind of rocket that we used to get to the Moon, at its top speed of 25,000 miles per hour, it would take oane billion years to arrive.

85% of all life on Earth is Plankton, whatever that is

Flushable toilets were in use in ancient Rome

Disgusting Food Museum

This morning while watching Sunrise the breakfast show I saw a couple of things that made me go what the hell............

Seems that Sweden has a disgusting food museum which is all very good and I am sure it contains many disgusting foods such as maggot infested cheese, sheep eyeball juice or bull testicles all gross but would American's think their root beer was disgusting, me things not.

Just like us Aussies do not think Vegemite is disgusting yes I get many people do not know how to eat it, spreading it thick like peanut butter. Also to make the list was our loved lolly the musk stick which I really don't get, the other food from down under to make the grade are witchetty grubs which are gross.

So what do you think is one of your countries loved food on the list and if so is it truly gross or not.


Here we are at Thursday, it has felt like a long week but really not any longer then any other week. I guess the restless I am feeling at...
