I thought I’d participate in the wonderful blog challenge that a mamas view is hosting…called, tell me something good, where you give something positive about your day which is now yesterday Monday…so here goes, a little late but..we’ll soldier on…
Something good about my Monday was seeing my sister, I hadn’t seen her since last week and it was nice to spend some quality time with her.
We chatted, she helped me set up the wifi on my tablet and it was a fun time spent together.
She also dropped me home from mom and dads, which was so nice of her, so very thoughtful.
So yeah that was my positive for Monday!
1. Who was the first person you ever had a crush on? Why did you like them?
My music teacher, he was kind and caring, and was interested in learning about me as a person.
2. What is the most important material possession you have and why?
Probably my Iphone. I couldnt be without it. It helps me do so many things that I wouldnt be able to accomplish otherwise.
3. If you were a cake which cake would you be?
Black forrest gattaux
4. Has anything/anyone every saved your life before?
Yes. when I was 8 a staff member at the bording school saved my life when I had an epileptic fit in the swimming pool. And of course the nurses and doctors saved me when Iwas born 3 months premature as well…
5. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?
The ability to read minds!
Bonus: Do you have a dream you’re pursuing? Tell us about it.
I am losing weight. Its my dream to be skinny. Or to be average weight for my height.
well its 4 AM. I’m not asleep as you can see.
I tried but couldn’t drop off. So got up again, no point to lying there thinking a million thoughts and unable to shut your brain up or off.
So I am up. I am just pottering around the house, and pottering around online.
I have the radio on low. And its very peaceful. Not a sound to be heard.
Just how I like it. Nitros fast asleep. He was dreaming in his sleep. He was whimpering, I think its so cute when he does that.
Is anyone else up?
Talk to me if you are?
so you all know I volunteer on Tuesday at the cork city partnership, this is an organisation that works with vulnerable, and elderly people, and people living in disadvantaged areas.
Last week my supervisor said she had two blind people, who needed training in how to use their laptop and I phone.
she asked me if I’d be interested in doing it since I am blind myself, and could give them first hand experience.
so I jumped at the chance.
Well tomorrow I start the job. One of the girls who just got a new laptop will come to me from 2:30 until 4:30. I am excited. But nervous too.
Will I be a good teacher? Will she like my style?
She already knows me. I know her boyfriend, he teaches at a local centre for the blind near where I live.
Well I hope she’ll enjoy it and get a lot out of what I try to help her with learning.
And hoping I get and gain a lot out of it too.
At least I have patience and don’t mind going over things…that helps, right?
How do you relax after a hard day of work?
I take a long hot shower. I read a book. I blog. I drink some tea. I watch a tv show or two or listen to some music. And most Importantly, I try to have a good sleep.
so…I thought this may be fun…
what would you like to know about Ireland? is there anything? about foods? heritage? traditions? slang words?
anything at all…come on, ask me!
I’m all ears!
I don’t claim to know it all, but maybe I can shed some light on some things for you?
So do ask me whatevers on your mind!
this should be interesting!
