Visiting the doctor

I was one of those people that would only go to the doctors if I was really very sick and had no choice, otherwise I would just take some Panadol and get on with my life.  As bad as I felt I still went to work, because if I didn't work I didn't get paid.  That's because I have my own business.

Anyway four year ago I had a very bad brain virus that nearly killed me I was in and out of hospital or 6 weeks, after that it did take my body one year to recover from that.  There were some lasting side affects but nothing I want to go into at the moment.  I am getting off course.

So with that being said I made a promise to my kids that anything out of the normal I would ge check it out.  So I did.  There was a lump forming on my finger which was infected and I had s spot on my arm which was growing so because I work outside I wanted to make sure it wasn't skin cancer.  The doctor had a look at it and said it was a wart and that she could remove it and that I had to come back and have it removed.

So I came back to discover is was not a wart but they wanted to removed it and send it away to find out what it was.  It was at that time that I told the doctor something that happen the night before I was to see him.  So now I have to have a colonoscopy, I have had one before and that was four years ago now I have to have another now.  The only problem is because I to go throught to public system I have to wait six months to a year before I can get into seeing someone.  Fingers cross nothing is wrong.

See you all next week, have a great week. xo

Being called Big/Fat

Why is looking skinny so important in this day and age.  The reason I bring it up is last week one of my customers ask me why I was so BIG (fat) when I walk six days a week.  I was so surprise with what she said I just said I just like food, and walk off taking her dog for a walk.

This is why a lot of teenagers stop eating food and start fasting.  My 11 year old daughter told me that her need to loose some weight.  Let me tell you my daughter is the right weight for her age and height, she don't need to loose weight.

Those of us that are size 16 and over can be beautiful and happy the way we are.  We just love food.  And if its not affecting our work or our life style leave us alone.

Just had to get that of my chest... Have a great week everyone, stay safe and happy. xo

Home school or Public school

Yesterday my 11 year old daughter did not want to go to school, she suffers from anxiety.  We just change schools last term because she didn't like going to her old school.  Term out she had to present the project she had don't to the class, and her anxiety levels were very high.  She I talk to the teacher and he talk to my daughter, and told her she can present to four of her friends.  Well that made her feel better.

If I compared home schooling to public I would pick home schooling.  The problem with that is I work full-time.  And she wouldn't get that one on one time that home schooling is known for, because she wouldn't have me at home telling what to do or help her because I would be to busy working.

I would save money on school fees.  You do get a lot of help now with home schooling which you didn't get before.  She wants to spend more time with me, but that would be hard as I have to work.  For now she will have to go to Public school.  When I start making money blogging, I will then let her do home schooling.

Scammers are getting better

How can we get ahead of scammers, when they just keep getting better and better.  Let me tell you what happen to me last weekend.  I was looking at my junk mail because sometimes, my friends who send me emails from time to time go there, anyway getting off track.

Long story short I got an Email from a Lawyer who said that one of my relatives died and that I was the next in line to receive some money.  I have never heard of this relative before.  So I looked up the address where the Lawyer said he worked. To my surprise the address was correct.  He then told me to send some information about me, but before I would send him anything I ask for his ID and he then said, first I had to send my information, once he had that he would then some his ID.  It just felt wrong so I did some more digging and found out it was a scam. 

He did send me his ID, it just wasn't his.  Boy, he nearly had me for a while.
