How embarrassing


Embarrassing moments. They happen to everyone. I have had many in my life. I actually had one today. I know I couldn’t help it but it was still rather embarrassing. I went and applied for a house today. Now as I has been sick and as I don’t drive so was walking I had worked up a bit of a sweat. So I was standing there filling out this form for the house and I had sweat dripping off me. I felt so bad. The lady had to ask me if I was ok.

I have had some other embarrassing moments in my life. There are two that stand out to me the most. The first was the time I was out with a bunch of friends on a Thursday night. Now Thursday nights when I was a teenager we used to hang out at the local shopping centre. So I went to sit down on a chair and a friend pulled it out from under me. Now normally I wouldn’t care but being a teenager and having my crush there it was very embarrassing and I went running to the toilets. The second most embarrassing moment was when I was camping with my family as we did every summer. I had gotten up from my chair as their were a couple of really good looking guys who were walking past. Now this summer my family were randomly dakking each other (For those who don’t know Dakking is when you basically tug down on a persons pants as they are walking past) Well my mum thought this was a good chance to get me. Down came my pants and my undies came down too. Thankfully no one saw anything (at least I hope) but I was very very embarrassed. I am sure there have been more and no doubt if any of my friends read this they will remind me of them but I must have blocked them from my brain.

Would love to hear your most embarrassing moments. Just so I don’t feel so bad!


Congrats are in order!


WOW… What a weekend. While I have been sick with suspected man flu (yep all I have done is complain) the world has kept turning and a couple of my friends have had major life events happen. This weekend I was invited to Adelaide to attend a friends engagement party. However lack of funds and my boy starting school meant I was unable to. So what happens. She surprises everyone and gets married! While I am sad that I missed out on being there on their special day I do feel honoured that I was invited! I have know my friend Keira for about 4 years. We met at another friends engagement party. My boy was at my dad’s for the weekend but she was there with her little boy. I may have stolen her baby (who was a few months old) from then we became firm friends. We were both in similar situations being single mums and the fathers not being in our boys lives. We helped each other out. Her more then me. She is a fantastic and beautiful friend who I wish all the best for the future. The other major thing that happened is that one of my lovely friends in Brisbane had a little baby girl this morning. She is another beautiful friend who I have known for 6 years from when I lived up there. He little girl is the most adorable little thing and I wish her all the best.

Natural Cold and Flu Remedies


Well I am currently dealing with the worst cold/mild flu I have had in forever. Most of the time I get the sniffles or a bit clogged up in the nose but I am feeling it at the moment. Body aches, clogged nose, cough. Thankfully no fever although I am taking panadol so it might not have come through. I prefer to deal with most things naturally if I can. So that means I have been googling natural remedies. I know the basics such as lots of rest (hard when you are a single mum) and lots of water. I have been downing juice to up the vitamins and lots of cups of tea to help with the cough/ sore throat. Garlic is one that I had heard of  but had never tried so I have given that a go today. I just sliced it up and took it like you do tablets (tried giving it a chew but it was not pretty!). Also been trying to keep my food intake up. as much as I don’t feel like eating this is something I need to do to help me feel better. I have cheated in that I am using some medicine for my nose. I can’t have 5 showers a day to keep my nose clear so this is helping me do the job. So hopefully the garlic starts doing it’s job and tomorrow I start feeling better. I think I am over the worse.

What are some of your favourite cold/ flu remedies?

I’m Having A Rant


So I am in need of a rant today. I am sick with a cold that my son shared with me and that in turn means I am emotional. I was thinking about friends today and how much I have helped them. I am one of those people who will try and help anyone who asks me in anyway that I can. This also means that I have been taken advantage of many times. It’s not fun. I have lent people money (all who earn more then me) only to have them not pay it back. When it comes to presents I always spend way more then others. Why because I believe that they are worth it sadly others do not feel the same. Not only that but if I ask for help I will always offer something in return if I can (mainly fuel money if I can). I was going through my phone today and realised I have some people who I think of as quite good friends and I haven’t heard from them in more then a month. Some I understand and there has been good reason for it. Others though I haven’t. Why because I refuse to ask for help from them because they always need something in return for it. I have had some friends who are awesome who ask for nothing and will help me in any way possible even at short notice. These are people I call real friends. Now I know I am not the most sociable person I struggle with small talk these days. they joys of being a single mum and not having the chance for small talk often means that I have gotten little patience for it these days. But I have great friends who understand that. At the moment I have a bunch of friends who I can go often without talking to but when we catch up it is great. We never push for anything and it’s nice. Other friends I have they feel the need to talk about all their problems and while I am happy to lend an ear every now and again they just don’t’ seem to get that sometimes I really don’t want to hear their problems as I am having some of my own. This to me has destroyed friendships. The only thing I can do is just to not ask for help (which I have started doing) and be very thankful for the friends I do have because they are wonderful and I do love them and try to get the toxic people out of my life (which I have started doing and finding out who my real friends are has been a very interesting thing).

Do you ever have days where your not well and just want to have a rant?

ANZAC Day – 2013


Today in Australia is one of the most special days. Today is ANZAC Day where we remember the fallen soldiers who have fought and died for our country. Whilst we also celebrate remembrance day ANZAC Day is special to both Australians and New Zealanders.

ANZAC Day stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps and falls on the 25th of April every year. This day is special to Australians as it was the day of our first major military move in World War 1. On the morning of the 25th of April 1915 the ANZAC’s set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey. This was seen as an important area to capture. However, much did not go to plan as they met a very strong resistance. In the 8 months which the campaign lasted (which turned into a stalemate) more then 8000 Australian lives were lost. Through the news Australians back home were shocked and a year later it officially became a day to remember all Australians who have sacrificed their lives so that we may be here today. ANZAC Day today is a day to remember all the lives that have been lost by Australians through war. We remember them during a dawn service and after many family members march in honour of the fallen and those who have returned. Information has been taken from the Australian Army Website which can be found here

While ANZAC day is a great day to remember and take time to sit and remember the sacrifices that these men have women have made so we can live our lives I believe we should be remembering them every year as we still have men and women overseas protecting those who need it and dying so others can be free like us. So not just today but every day We Will Remember Them.

“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

The Ode of the ANZAC

Marvel Vs DC


Well tomorrow my son and I are off to the movies. We are going to see the advanced screening of Ironman 3. We are massive Marvel fans and love all the movies. From Spider-man to Thor. We have seen all of them and normally go to the advanced screenings if we can. We have been hanging out to see Ironman 3 for ages. We watch the trailer quite often so we are pretty excited. We aren’t actually big DC comic fans. I personally wont let him watch the Batman movies. They are way to dark and scary for him (Although he does have one of the cartoons  which even then is slightly to dark for my liking). Superman I will however let him watch when it comes out in a couple of months. We quite like him as he is not all doom and gloom. We recently watched The Green Lantern and I have to say that the only decent thing that the movie had was the fact that Ryan Reynolds was in it. Personally to me Marvel have much better quality of movies. Their story lines are much less doom and gloom and have a much more positive spin then DC. Addison is a big Spider-man fan. He loves him! We have all the movies and have to say we like the remake of them better then the first set of movies. I think it comes down to the fact that Disney now own Marvel. This makes them much more family friendly. So we will head off to the movies to check out the new Ironman movie and in good timing we got to watch the first trailer for the new Thor movie later this year! (you can watch that on my Facebook page here )

Do you prefer the Marvel movies or the DC Movies?
