Ready to shop until I drop!

Lol! We’re off into killarney town centre to shop until we drop!
I am excited to look around and maybe buy some new clothes. I normally dont enjoy clothes shopping, but since I started losing weight it has become more enjoyable. Now that I can get nice clothes to fit me, I love shopping.
We’ll spend the day intown. Mom is going to partner up with me, and my sister is going to take lauren and davin, I’m sure mom and me will stop off for coffee along the way, mom cant walk too far before she needs to rest, because of her COPD.
I hope I can find a few new tops to wear. I need some new ones. I wish I had more money but I have enough, just that I wish I had a lot more hahaha.
AFter shopping we’re going for dinner, and then tonight my two aunts are coming to stay the night with us, it’ll be a mad house!
We had a nice big cooked breakfast this morning, a full irish. It was delicious. Really tasty.
I dont know how I’m surviving, as I’ve been up since 3:30 AM. I suppose I’ll be wrecked tonight, but I’ll manage, I’m not tired right now so thats good.

She’s 11 today…

My niece is 11 today. Wow! 11 years ago today, she was born.
I cant believe that! I remember her birth like it was yesterday. I remember how thrilled I was…my first niece.
When my sis went into labour we all went to the hospital with her. She was in labour on lauren for days. I wasnt at the hospital when lauren was born, we’d gone home, only our mom and dad had stayed there, the rest of the family went home. but I remember staying up all night, she was born at 4:40 in the morning. I remember all the excitement of it.
Now she’s 11 and getting so grown up. She is a quiet and gentle child. She isnt outgoing at all. She has the sweetest nature though and the sweetest personality.
At midnight tonight we lit candles on her cake, we got her mini cakes, chocolate ones, we stuck 11 candles in them and we sang happy birthday. She was so embarrassed to her. She hates having a fuss made of her. My sis got it on video, I’ll try to post it later on.
My sister was so funny on the video. She was drunk, and After we all sang, and lauren ran out of the room, my sis was like, in her poshest voice, now, this is what its like in 2019!
Hahahaha!
We’re going to light her cakes again this morning, when everyone wakes up, and we’ll all give her her birthday cards then. Mom and me have cards for her, and some of my aunts gave mom cards to give her as well.
I feel so nostalgic today. I cant believe my precious niece is 11. Man I am old!

Death of my cousin

I just found out, my cousin, Alison, she’s 50, and lives in england, and last october she was diagnosed with liver cancer and she just passed away tonight.
I am devastated. She was an incredible person. A kind, caring lovely and wonderful person.
she had had an operation to remove the tumour on her liver, but then she found out after having the surgery that she was terminal, she died in her daughters house, at 8 PM tonight.
Her daughter, jade is 30, and her son jordan, he’s in prison, so he never got to say goodbye. Its so sad for him.
She had two grandkids, both under 7.
I am just devastated for the family. i cant believe it has happened. You really just never know from one day to the next do you? Her mom and dad are both still alive, both of them are in their 70’s.
Life is so cruel. And it can change in an instant.
Please keep them in your thoughts. I will probably be going to the funeral, but that wont be happening for a couple weeks I’d say.
We’ll have to travel to england for it. My mom and sister and me will all probably go.
Heartbroken tonight at hearing this news.

Killarney

We’re in Killarney and enjoying our selves. We are having a great time. So much fun.

we went into the town and did a little shopping earlier this afternoon. I didnt buy much though, I bought a pajamas, and I went looking in another store, at dresses, I want to buy a dress for my cousins wedding, he’s getting married in june.
I saw a nice black dress on sale, but I didnt end up buying it. I was worried that I’d buy it and then lose a ton more weight and it wouldnt fit me, so I dont think I’ll buy it until nearer the time of the wedding.
We went to aldi after looking around, and bought some food for dinner. We made pizza, wings, and I got a nice sweet potato curry too.
We came back to the apartment, cooked, ate and now mom and my sister are having some drinks, I am not drinking though.
Tomorrow we’re going to go back into town, going shopping for the day, we’re also going to go for a meal, have dinner out somewhere. We also got lauren a birthday cake, as her birthday is tomorrow.
My aunt and cousin are going to come tomorrow evening and spend the night with us, we have plenty of room here in the apartment, so they’re going to drive down here and we’ll have drinks, well I wont, but the rest of them will.
Its a cool apartment, we have two bedrooms, a livingroom and kitchen area and two bathrooms, its really nice.
I’m loving that we are having this break away, feels so nice to be able to just relax and chill out.

Arrived

We just arrived at our apartment in Killarney. It’s really lovely. We are just settling in now. Later we are going in to town to do a bit of shopping and have food. The weather is even cooperating. It’s 14 degrees c here now. We are here until Sunday. Tomorrow it’s Lauren’s birthday. We might go billing tomorrow if we have time. I’ll post more later tonight.

Seldomly, I cry

Seldomly she said
Seldomly I cry
Why?
Because, because
Crying shows how weak I am
Never!
Crying is theraputic
It is a release
could she?
Would she?
Was crying really ok?
Her friend motioned to her
Just let it go
Dont worry!
Fear not!
Crying, everyone should do it!
Its healing!
She sat staring into her coffee mug
Wondering, pondering
Was this really true?
Should she just let go?
It was seldomly that she did
She never wanted to be percieved as weak
but maybe, maybe
she could now, just this once!

I wrote this poem in relationship to how I feel at the moment. I am feeling as if I shouldnt be so weak, I shouldnt cry, I shouldnt let my guard down. I suppose its ok though, right? Its ok not to be ok?
