18th-Jan-2019 03:09 pm - Quick Update
Had a lovely time in Queensland but I have been having to catch up on my Counselling course. I have sent in another assignment so fingers crossed I have passed.
I have started watching Titans and it's not bad. Nice seeing some Vertigo characters and a character I had forgotten about. :-)
The new Watership Downs seems pretty good as well. I read the book years ago and I remember the animated film. Still, waiting for the new season of Aggretsuko though. Nothing much is happening, it's fairly peaceful which is the way I like it, who knows, 2019 might not be a bad year. Now let's hope I have not jinxed it LOL
30th-Dec-2018 05:20 pm - Lovely day at my sister's
Julie always puts on a great spread. So much food I think I have put on five kilos just looking at it LOL. Now on my way home to eat Christmas pudding ice cream. Yes it is a thing. :-)
I have been trying to catch up on my studies and run around trying to get Christmas together. I made my first trifle which I am proud to say was a success and a pavlova but I bought the base so I kinda cheated. LOL
It was a quiet Christmas, just the way I like it but I have all this food left over now. I am going to be eating ham until Easter LOL
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year.
The carpet was laid in the two bedrooms today and it looks good. The two guys that came out to do the carpet kept complaining that there was so much furniture, well sorry guys but I like to sit on chairs and sleep in a bed. I am funny like that. Also, there was the same amount of furniture that first time you cam out except for a couple of old wardrobes that Steve and a friend of ours Brad too out for the rubbish, so actually there was less. The work is finally finished and now we can get the flat back to normal. Yay. I should not complain though, I am really happy with the kitchen and the new carpet. I am glad that its all finished though. :-)
28th-Nov-2018 03:16 pm - Rain rain and more rain
Summer is here but the weather has turned so cold and wet. Apparently, we are getting a month's worth of rain in one day although the way the news is reporting it, they are making it sound like the end of days. LOL It's not affecting us so much, it seems more towards the city and even though there is some flooding, I think we will all survive.
Just submitted another assignment so I am getting close to finishing the course. All that is left are a few more units and work placement, then hopefully on to my Counselling course proper.
Steve and I are getting ready for Christmas, we are not putting up decorations this year as it's really just going to be the two of us and the unit is upside down at the moment because of the new kitchen, flooring, and carpeting. Everything is a mess so I don't need decorations to add to the chaos. I know it sounds grinchy but I have so much on my plate right now.
I will be glad when all the renovations are finished though so I can get this place back to normal. :-)
2nd-Nov-2018 04:20 pm - Second Post In One Day
Steve and I have had a bit of a health scare. Nearly a year ago, I decided to become a vegetarian. It was something I was thinking of doing for a while for multiple reasons, including not wanting to eat animals anymore. Steve being the wonderfully supportive husband that he is, decided to stop eating meat and fish as well. Over the course of the year, we both found that we were feeling more tired, Steve's mood was slowly changing and he was becoming impatient and bad-tempered which is so out of character for him. He is usually one of the most even-tempered men I have ever met. I have no time for sour people, believe me.
We went to the doctor to see what was going on. Steve's blood sugar was through the roof, as was mine. Steve is diabetic and I have insulin resistance as we both have to watch what we eat. We don't eat junk food and we make sure we take vitamins and buy fresh food so we thought that we would be okay. It turns out that our new meat free diet has been playing havoc with our bodies, our blood sugar was going crazy even though many of the recipes were diabetes friendly. So now we have decided to start eating meat and fish again. I feel bad because I liked being a vegetarian but not to the detriment of our health. So it's back to eating meat once more.
2nd-Nov-2018 04:08 pm - Happy Halloween
Yes, I know it's a little late but Steve and I have been so busy. Not only was it Halloween but it was also our three-year anniversary when Steve proposed so we went out to celebrate. Today is my oldest daughter and my baby granddaughter's birthday as well so it's going to be a busy week.
Finished my course's first semester and passed, (thank god.) now onto the next semester.
Hope everyone had fun on Halloween so now it's on to Christmas. (I much prefer Halloween though.)
27th-Oct-2018 03:31 pm - Success, (almost)
Well, I have sent off the last assessment for the first set of modules and now I have to go about organising work experience. The one place I wanted to it has closed its doors in my area. This government seems to hate charities and is intent on starving them of funding. :-(. Still, there are a few more I was planning on having a look at. Now I need to get my police and working with children check, then I can start on my next set of modules. :-)
19th-Oct-2018 11:31 am - Just A Bit Of A Catch-up
I noticed that I haven't posted in a few days so I thought I would just catch up with a heap of general stuff.
Some good news, our flat is being completely redone. A new kitchen, the one we have now is falling to pieces because it is so old, and new carpet as well. YAY. It's being done before Christmas so we have a whole lot of packing to do so the workmen can come in and do it all.
Also, I received my results from my Community Work And Study assessment and I passed, so that's good.
I had to get some work done on my car, just a few bits and pieces, oil change, new air, and oil filter and spark plugs, nothing major thank god. Geraldine is an old car, but she is reliable. :-)
On a sadder note, I still haven't had a chance to see Venom yet, hopefully, I will get to see it soon.
That's about it for now.
26th-Sep-2018 05:19 pm - Don't Feel Like Adulting Today
Oh man what a week, and it has not been a great one. Steve has been in real pain with his knees. He has osteoarthritis and bony growths that have been getting worse so he has been grumpy which is not his usual cheerful self. He is trying new painkillers and has gone back to the chiropractor/physio but I don't think it's helping. He has had the cold laser treatment but the exercises aren't really helping anymore.
He is too young for a knee replacement so we need to find something that works.

That and I have had a couple of minor setbacks, nothing really bad, but annoying, but I have passed my third assignment so there is that. Just little stupid annoyances, but we are going away for a nice weekend to Canberra so hopefully that will be nice.
