My Week

Slept in till 6.50, got up opened the house and made my own breakfast as it is Saturday.

Kathy will be over this afternoon as this morning she has to do her refresher course in first aid for work.

So Tim had to help me dress this morning.

Kathy rang she will be here 8.30 in the morning. She felt drained after her morning.

Woke a 6ish after a shocking night, I woke every couple of hours not for long although it felt like it took ages to go back to sleep but I don't think it did.

Kathy arrived around 8.30 alone she had left the girls with Micheal. She showered me and did the ironing.

Mum was confused a bit this afternoon, so only a short chat.

Awake with the alarm, opened house, unpacked dishwasher, and had my wash and still no Tasha. I sent her a text and she showed up minutes later.

A hot day A/C going from 9am so I am ok not too sweaty.

Asked Tasha to get me stamps as I have 10 letters to post.

Only a short chat to Mum sitting on the scooter in front of Tasha's car while I waited for Leo to get home. She rang just as I was leaving the house. Thankfully the house phones have a decent range.

Awake with the alarm again, had a so so nights sleep.

Not suppose to be hot but it is and I am sweating but not overly.

Mum was telling me that Michelle rang and wanted to talk about the problems she is having with Landon.

Mum didn't at one point understand why Michelle would want to speak to her as they are not related. I reminded Mum that she has been like a mother to Michelle as soon as I did she sounded different she got it, understood everything.

I can tell when Mum isn't with it she sounds different, you can just tell that she doesn't understand. It is sad and upsetting to me, Mum knows her memory is fading and it upsets her as well.

Woke at 6am, got up and opened the house and Tasha was here.

Started raining at 6.50, also quite cool.

Tasha changed the sheets and had a right bitch about how people don't have a top sheet now days.

Tasha offered to give me a shower but I really didn't feel like it maybe tomorrow.

Mum was ok not great but ok.

Awake at 6 so got up and opened the house and unpacked the dishwasher, before Tasha turned up.

Blain had to come home at lunch time as he spilt drink in his bag and needed to clean it out.

Tasha came down and gave me a shower.

Awoke at 5.40 needing to pee so got up and stayed up, I can't see the point in going back to bed for 1/2hr.

Tasha arrived at 6.10 and got me set up for the day.

Mum was repeating and talking about old events like they just happened.

What Jo-Anne Thinks

 Hello everyone, want to know what Jo-Anne thinks about...........

Today I am thinking about boredom, something I do not suffer from, and according to my Mum I never have done.

Part of the reason some people feel bored is because they feel that they must be doing stuff. Children may feel they need to be entertained but I disagree.

Some people find it hard to do nothing, not me I like  to just sit in the quiet watching traffic or nothing. 

I have read since I was very young and love it, now days I listen to audiobooks and I love it.

As a teenager I either read or listen to music, or did nothing and didn't feel bored.

Both my grandsons from a very young age would come and spend a night with Nana & Papa, while here they would be left to amuse themselves playing with toys, watching telly or play video games. They loved coming here and Leo still loves spending a night here. 

Neither of my granddaughters have every spent a night here, I have watched them during the day but unlike the boys they expected me to interact with them more then I did. 

I have heard both girls at times complain about being bored more then I have heard the boys say so. Don't get me wrong the boys have at times said they felt bored but it happens rarely.

Poem Day




Published: January 2012

Sometimes I catch a glimpse,
In softened waves of blue,
My child, my heart ...when I see a smile,
I can't help but think of you.

Sometimes these waves fill oceans.
And feelings string on every shore,
A collections of each memory
And every way I wish for more.

Sometimes I watch for answers
Because each day I call to you.
I ask for faith and courage
And help me through.

Sometimes I ask for bravery
Like dolphins in the deep,
Because time moves oh so slowly,
And sometimes the road is steep.

Sometimes I want to scream.
This was not what I had planned.
Why you ever suffered,
A mom can't understand.

Sometimes I hear your laughter
And remember you at play,
But My Child I always miss you.
Not sometimes, but every day.

Today's post is about a Dome Home, they can resemble a deep sea submersible's sphere-shaped cabin which can resist extreme pressure.

They are often built in places where's there is a high risk of windstorms. ible tA tough concrete dome lets the wind flow around it, there are also no tiles ti fly off. Dome Homes have low heating.

I have not heard of these homes, nor seen one
