Instagram - November


November is always a busy month for E and I - This year we spent it in Sydney (only a few days) but as always we go photo crazy. This is my November Fav Instagram Photos I posted. It was hard to choose...
  1. "Sydney'ness" - E and I took a ferry from Mosman after a beautiful day, walking around and i snapped this great photos with my iPad while our way back to Circular Quay.
  2. "Movember Madness" - E and I enjoyed a Palmier which is oddly shaped like a Mo - which we had to snap for Movmeber month.
  3. "Hemingsway's Cup" - E and I had dinner at this one place in Manly, Sydney. The have this great cup of tea (alcoholic) but yummy! Their menu was stapled into a encyclopaedia, you literally get lost in the menu. Great idea
  4. "Picnic Anniversary Lunch" - E and I celebrated out Anniversary in Sydney. We got a few Krispy Kreme's, Cheeses, crackers, grapes and a great view. We had a feed and enjoy each others company.
  5. "An odd Tea Party" - Enjoying a cuppa at our favourite book shop in when E picked up a crocodile at our table. Doddo and Crocodile loves Tea.
  6. "Catching Some Cancer" - Nien and I went to City Beach and enjoyed some sun. Can't go to the beach with out some selfies.

Dear me....

Dear 11 Year Old Me...

I sit here writing you this letter - thinking how lucky we are. We have Traveled, We have love, We have lost, We have made decisions that hurt but most of all - We have grown up.
I always thought of you being too mature for your age, but I think it worked for us. You will be surprised, what life has install for you.

I wanted to make a point by mentioning - that your are not worthless... you might feel like it at this time but the boys will come along,  more like the perfect guy. You know the kind that is in movies - You fall for him unexpectedly you have a fairy tail first kiss and the perfect BIG day you never thought you dreamt about. Now, if I end up telling you more that would be unfair and well - TELLING!!

In the mean time,
You've made friends with those who didn't have friends.
You will give everything to help where needed including your parents when they are struggeling. For an 11 year old you know more about life that others think they do. Be grateful for all the things that happen to you and learn out of them.
You will realise life is not about physical things that makes you happy but the people you have in your life. You will be able to tell who are friends and who is using you.
You will give time to those who need it, even if it means you loose 5/10 min of your own.
You lend a helping hand and a shoulder to cry on.
You will be helping others with their decisions.
You will be going places.
You will be happy in yourself.
You will be blessed with a great career with opportunities and beautiful husband.
Above all -You will enjoy being yourself and make others realise thats all they have to be.
I want you to stop worring about the what if's and start enjoying life. Your amazing and give so much and you will continue doing that. All I want you to do is give something to yourself.

I am Grateful to call me YOU

Much love
your older self

Wedding day - one year ago

One year ago - gosh what a day!!

E and I got married - I remember getting dressed enjoying the day. People saying  "are you sure?"  "you can change your mind" and/or " you don't have to do this". All I remember thinking is that I want to see E and tell him everything whats happend since the oast time I saw hime- which wasnthe day before!! I aanted to tell him how weird it was sleeping without him, how was my dinner and about this funny thing I saw on the TV earlier!!

E and I work! yes, we fight and sometimes just because I feel like arguing, I don't know if that is normal, but I like our little arguments! It's like we argue for the sake of arguing and then after we joke around about something we saw, what's happening or what's we're arguing about!!

I could not to ask for anyone better that could make me laught, cry or argue with! Hassie we work and I love you for it!! 

One down for ever to go!!

Instagram - October

Here is my Instagram photos of August : 
  1. "Grumpy Photo Bomb!!" - I was feeling unwell at my parents house when Mr Grumpy bones came to sit next to me to make me feel better. Ain't he a sweetie pie??
  2. "Some Call This Home!!" - Waiting for my mother to finish from with with E. We ended up in this park next to her work. Some great old buildings and looks great with the sun behind it.
  3. "Step One - Where's Wally Glasses" - Getting ready for halloween. All though it look like we won't be doing anything and E will be work. But dressing up for each other is always fun
  4. "Jacobs Ladder Picnic with Nien" - Nien and I started to do Jacobs ladder every sunday after I drop E off from work. We meet up in Kings Park and make our way to the dreaded ladder and seem to do great down but getting back up: we sound like long term smokers. As a reward after Nien and I have a healthy picnic in the park to relax and recover for the week ahead.
  5. "Walking" - E took this photo when we were waiting for my mother to finish from work with his new Baby (digital camera) and now as always I am the ginny pig with him trying it out. I am not complaining - As much as I like taking photos I like being in them too. So therefore I am grateful E got a new toy.
  6. "Where's Wally?" - Happy Halloween to everyone... I dressed up as 'Where's Wally" to work. Entertained the oldies for a while. They all said with my glasses on I look 20 years younger... ? although that would make me 1??? hmmm interesting - does that make it an insult then?? meh . All in all I enjoy dressing up!!
This is my October fav's.... there  wasn't to much to choose from... been exited for our up coming holiday!! 

Keep smiling.

Hassie Adventure - Step 2

We are still planning on going traveling. Organised the route - although that is subject to change. Google'ing information and making a lot of TO DO lists.

A lot has happend since my last update to Hassie Adventure - good news all in all.  
Now told my manager, art teacher and all the staff I work with. E hasn't told his people yet - he is waiting! So now I have stepped down as Supervisor and going back to just being an Enrolled Nurse for the oldies. It's less stress, meaning I can focus on planning things for our Hassie Adventure.
I am slightly sad about leaving my job - I am currently so happy with the people I work with and they seem to like me, such a difference from the previous place I worked - where if I think back I realise I as bullied!

Then we have been looking at some vans!! OMG - I love it... its our first house!! How exiting!! (will keep you posted)

We are basically saving up BIG time :( no shopping for me - But thinking about it : IT's Worth IT!!

I am super exited - we are thinking to start February: but that can change as well.... Keep an eye out for our Adventure Spots soon

Live to be a 100??

People born 100 years ago would typically live to the ripe old age of 50 years, while children born this year and years to come, are expected to live to age 80 and even beyond.
A study of our elderly shows some general guidelines that you and I can follow in order to help extend our own life, regardless of your age.

Reading these made me giggle and thought I should share for some education as well as a reminder to live by. 
1. Be born a female. Hard to do much about this now if you care a male, but females have been outliving males for centuries. Yay me. 
2. Stay married. Married people live longer than single people - 10 years longer for men, 4 years for women. Well E and I have this one down packed. 
3. Eat less. Research shows that life expectancy can be extended by eating less. Oh my this is something I will struggle with and well seeing that E is a chef, food is very much part of our life. 
4. Pass up refined sugar. Eating excessive refined sugar can speed the aging process. 
5. Use little salt. Getting used to salt-free tastes will take some time, but excessive salt intake taxes the heart and kidneys.
6. Reduce protein intake. Ingesting too much protein stresses the body and reduces your ability to fight disease.
7. Regular exercise. No need to spend a fortune for a gym membership. Brisk walking improves circulation, metabolism and emotional well-being and can add years to your life.
Don't take a single day for granted! So I want everyone to turn a 100... see you in a century!!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Now, I'm no fan of reading books they is promote, every one talks about and is supposedly going to bring a baby boom!!

It ridiculous whats been on the media, I am sick of hearing about this and can't believe peoples live is that boring to think a book is going to change their sex life.

I've read them all - fifty shard of grey, darker and freed.
First of all - its an easy read. I don't know much about grammar, spelling or etc. I read a book for the story and don't think about the words it self really.

The Characters:
Anastasia  Grey - I was annoyed at her the most... argh - she is a frustrating character - 'oh my fifty' oh my boy' it's really annoying to hear her subconscious snarling at her all the time and how she is hesitant to about everything that has to do with 'Mr Grey'. I did like the fact that she stood up to him, not let him walk over her too much, he is very controlling, domineering over woman, I would like him to know how it feels - so high five for her.

Christian Grey - I think this book has done so well is because the man Christian Grey is - is every girls dream. You have no worry about money, Is suppository very handsome, hot, sexy. A man who will stop every thing he is doing to be with you, Buy you to starts, moon and sun when you ask and
have 'bindblowing' sex all the time  I realise he has had a troubled past - but every girl wants a man they can 'save'.

Relationship - I could not stop thinking through out the book - "what if Christian was a poor man' would this still be a good story or will be be a weirdo who likes 'kinker' sex? Christian does a lot for his family, and Ana. He can, he has the money - he keeps saying through out the book. Was just interesting to think about him poor and he the relationship would have been with 'normal people stresses'

Sex- people have been going on about this crazy sex, Hard core, mommy porn. Now I found the sex quiet boring, maybe cause she was describing every little thing in detail and how Ana is thinking about what ever is bothering Christian during sex - it gets distracting and you loose tract of what is actually happening. I actually ended up skipping the sex but the end of the first book and did the same with the others.

I enjoyed reading the story because of the love story. Christian is described as a man who is strong, brave and striking but throughout the book you realise he isn't, he is hiding behind this shield he build.  By the middle of the second book Ana starts looking after him, helps him with his problems and SPOILER ALERT - gets married and have babies.

Its a common story and I felt like I knew what was coming but not when...

I do recommend you read it, its a good story and if your a sucker for a love story and an happy ending then this is the book for you.

I am interested though on how they are going to make these books a movie.... its going to be a porno with all the sex they have. , I mean they have sex a lot - no real person can have this much sex and still run a company. The sex is ever second page and then sometimes every second paragraph - its tiring to read actually - specially because I wanted to get to the happy ending.

How to put it in words...

When someone ask you why you love him/her- it's hard to give a answer ... Don't you think?

I have been with E for 5 years already and I know I don't want to be in this life without him - even though he drives me insane! But putting it in words why I love him is hard! Well I think anyway. This might sound like I don't love him but its the OPPOSITE!!

E and I say 'I love you' all the time- isn't that really all that matters that he loves me and we don't need a reason for it?
Doesn't actions show your love? And therefore you know he love me?
I know its nice to be made like your the only one! And your the one for him. ... But to realistic its not possible... All nice and that but the little things makes me feel special!

E can just give me a kiss out of no where and I known then!

I mean try it? Try saying in words why you love your partner/husband/wife/girlfriend/boyfriend/dog/cat/etc

Love comes in different ways and it all depends on the person receiving it - to like it or not!

It's hard putting it in words!! Try?

  2. "A Inspiring Spring Day" - This was taken in Margaret River at the Berry Farm... I was this beautiful setting I could not miss by snapping some polaroid photos (to think of it, I haven't looked at the polaroid photo since I took it ... Wonder how it turned out)

  4. "It's Snowing In Perth" - Nien and I were watching some snow - as our TV does not quite work unless we watch DVD.... No point of fixing it as we tend to either read in bed. Great life... Some might disagree
  5. "Tree Get Cold Too" - This was taken in Fremantle, We found these tree covered in wool. I loved it, I would cover a whole town in wool. It would be like a Dr Suess's world. 
  6. "E and I Enjoying Freo" - E and I enjoyed a day in Freo, Breakfast, Book Shop and an enjoyable read in the park.
  7. "Tell Me What" - I was making E and I some sandwiches as he says that is why he married me - well I could not resist taking this photos.... And my mom says 'Don't play with your food".... she would not be enjoying this photo if I didn't... Sorry Mum
This is my September favourites.... Gosh this is before Hassie Adventure - Think when E and I go... I will have thousands of photos I would like to share.

Keep smiling.

  5. "Strange to think once we were strangers" - I love this photo, Janine (Nien) and I up in the hills having fun... gosh to think only a few months about we weren't friends.
  6. "Meow" - Not my cat. I am more a dog person. This is Tommy, he is the cat at my art class... he likes to pass by your legs and meow until you make sure you acknowledge him. I like him but glad I only spend 2 and half hours a week with him... Cat are so demanding. 
This is my August favourites.... they were hard to choose as I had a few I liked.... but can't post them all

Keep smiling.
