The fright of my life.

As I was walking one of my dogs yesterday I saw a baby brown snake,

right next to me in the gutter in the street.  Now these baby have more venom in them then the adults have.  Please don't ask me how that happens.  The dog that I was walking got bite by a baby brown last year went in the dogs back yard.  Cost the owner 1000.00, so she of cause doesn't want it to happen again.

I was on the look out for adults not babies.  See how small it is, and it blends in with the land here in Australia.  So you can just about step on one of these and you wouldn't know it until its too late, only because where the dog lives there is a reserve behind her, so there are small twigs and stick, so very hard to stop them.  But one bite to me could kill me. 

So I have to keep my wits about me next time.  I might even take a stick to bang on the ground, because they can feel the vibration from that.  Well I'm off to work again wish me luck.

Take care everyone, see you all next time.:-) xo

Getting into the Christmas spirit

Ok everyone dare I say it, Christmas is only one month away.  What's not funny is I haven't even started my Christmas shopping yet.:-( I haven't put my tree up yet or decorated my house, there just has been so much to do around my place that Christmas has been pushed aside, but not anymore.  Today is the day that Christmas shopping begins, and making Christmas treats that my kids love start to get made.

I do hope I'm not the only one that this has happen too.  How is everyone else getting on with getting into the Christmas spirit.  Have you finished the Christmas shopping yet?

If you have any good Christmas food like biscuits, cake, things like that let me know I would love to try them.

Anyway I have to get back to it.  Take care everyone, see you all next time.:-)

What a weekend

My 11 year old daughter come home from school and showed me her swollen finger and tells me she hurt it playing soccer at school.  So I give her some medicine and put an ice pack on it and tell her to elevate her hand because that would help with the pain.

By the next day her finger is black and blue and I tell my husband to take her to the doctors because I think it may be broken.  After going to the doctors and having x-rays, my husband and daughter are told its just a bad sprain finger. 

Its wasn't until later in the afternoon we get a phone call telling us that my daughter has fractured her finger and that we need to take her to the hospital, where we only had to wait two and a half hours for the doctor to it in a splint and to come back in a weeks time to have a look at it again.  By this time my daughter is in so much pain from the doctor touching it all the time.  That she was more then ready to go home to bed.  It would have been about 11pm when we got home.

The doctors did put my daughter arm in sling to help the swelling go down, but my daughter wont wear it because it hurts her neck.  Mind you it hasn't stop her playing Minecraft on the computer. lol  Kid these days they just bounce back so fast.

Take care everyone see you all next time.:-)xo

Problems with cleaning up

Oh boy, where do I start.  A while back I wrote a post on spring cleaning, but can I tell you, it has just gotten out of hand.  It has been very long days, not only do I work at my day job, but have to clean the house as well. Ok on the plus side I've been sleeping great.  So lets get back to spring cleaning, it has become an even bigger job then I ever could of imagine.  Because yesterday I went outside and looked at my roof and gutters and they both need to be painted.  My new front door needs to be painted and so does the inside of my house.  I think my husband is looking to move out right about now, he is giving me that look (I THINK MY WIFE HAS LOST IT)lol.

Have you started spring cleaning and realize there was a lot more to me done?  I would love to know about it.  The weather has been up and down, and what I mean by that is one day its hot then the next its raining, come on weather make up your mind.

My sons don't know it yet but I'm going to ask them for some help on the weekend.  All hands on deck.

Well I would write more, but have to get back to work,  Christmas is around the corner, and there is still so much to do.  Take care, see you all next time. xo :-)

Other child leaves home

A couple of days ago my daughter comes to me and tells me how much she loves me and gives me a great big hug.  I knew something was up because that rarely happens without me asking for a hug and it is always me telling her how much I love her.  Anyway she then tells me she is moving out and going to live with her boyfriend of three months and his family, because he is the one.  She is nineteen and I knew it would be one day soon I just didn't know it was gong to be this soon.

So my oldest son is moving out next year with his girlfriend and now my oldest daughter is moving out with her boyfriend after Christmas.  So I really need to make this Christmas one to remember, as it will be the last time my family of six will be together at Christmas.

It is sad I will be losing both of my oldest children, but they are ready to move out.  I still have my youngest two children, so it isn't to bad. 

Am I the only one that has a hard time letting go of her children??  How did you cope when your children started leaving home?  I would love to know.

Take care everyone, see you next time.:-)xo

Trump wins

At the moment most Australians are in shock.

Why America why?  We all thought Hillary would win here in Australia.  But was very surprised when Trump won in a land slid of all things.  Poor Hillary, was left wondering what went wrong.  I was left baffled and confused with what just happen.  It was my understanding that you hated Trump. 

After work I was sitting watching the debate, and they put a photo of Trump and his followers watching how the counting was doing.  And there was Hillary's daughter with the Trump family.  I guess she had jumped ship. It was very funny to me.  When she was meant to me a strong supporter for her mother.  So when the chips are down time to jumps ship.  What a daughter...

I have to wonder if he will build a wall around America?  Send all Muslims out of America, I mean what will that do anyway.  And he does not believe in Global warming. I ask you America WHY you voted him in??  Let me tell you it will be a very long 4 years.  So strap yourselves in world because its going to be a very bumpy ride.

Take care, see you all next time.:-) xo

How to make a blog successful

I have been trying to work out how to make my blog successful for nearly a year now.  You see I made a goal to write on my blog at least once a week, sometimes it was more then once a week.  I even tried to make money as a second income.  Unfortunately it hasn't worked out for me.

I wanted it to be one of the many blogs out there that are successful and are making a living out of there blogs.  I have realize you do have to have something to sell.  Sometimes that's what makes people want to come back every day or week. 

mmm in saying that, I visit a blog that doesn't have anything in a way of selling products .  All of her post are very interesting and it makes me want to go back each week.  So what am I doing wrong?

Now I have done a lot of research and tried lots of ideas, maybe its just time to give up.  The most important message I have got is that you have to write something you know a lot about,  something people would be interested in.  That's it, I'm just not interesting enough for people to want to come back again and again.

Some people say you have to give your blog a good go before quitting.  I have join forums, posted comments on other peoples post.  Nothing seem to be working.  What am I doing wrong??? I would love you help.

Take care, see you next time.:-)xo

Spring is finally here

Yes its true Spring is here!!!!

And just in time, because it is the last month of spring. A lot of us here where I live didn't think we would ever put our winter clothes away, and that Spring had forgotten to come.

Although we are happy now wait a few month and I will be complaining how hot Summer is, because Summer starts next month and we are told it will be a very hot Summer.  As for me I'm not looking for to that. 

So for the next month I'm looking forward to lots of BBQ'S, time at the beach. Oh there is so much to do in the coming months.

And Christmas will be here next month, in the next couple of weeks there will be so much to do and see I'm so looking forward to it.

I would love to know what you do at spring and summer times.  And that wonderful time of year Christmas how do you celebrate Christmas?? I would really like to know.

Take care everyone, see you next time.:-) xo
