Tell me something good 3-19-2018

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!


TMI Tuesday: Random life

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.

4 AM ramble

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?
❤ 🙂



Whatcha think of this guys?
I just had to share it…


New opportunity

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?


Let it bleed March 18th

I watch in awe
a sunset
slowly taking in the beauty
not wanting it to end
wishing it would last
of whats in store for me
when darkness falls
a nightmare
my own personal hell
oh sunset
please last


My afternoon plans changed!

Well, I never went to my friends. It was kind of a bummer as I needed the cheering up.  But when I called her she was going somewhere with her sister.  She did say that we could rearrange it for during the week.  So then when that didn’t happen, I decided to do a little self care after dinner, so I took a nap.  A nap that turned into about 3 hours, lol.  But I feel so good now after it.  I feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  And my mood is much better.  Mentally I am feeling good.  So I guess that’s a win, right?  I’ve eaten really healthily all day.  I’ve had a ton of fruit, I made two fruit salads and I put natural yoghurt on top.  They were delicious.  I didn’t  get any exercise in today.  But that’s ok, I’ll get a ton of it in this week when I’m home.  I’ll go on the treadmill every day, at least that’s the plan anyway.  When I was sleeping I had weird dreams.  Not bad ones, just weird.  Cant even describe them but they were kinda out there, now that I’m awake I can barely remember the details but when I first awoke I could remember them vividly.  Anyway.  Tomorrows a bank holiday here.  Mom is going to come to my house with me for the afternoon.  Hopefully my sis will drop me home when she is on her way to work.  Well that’s about it i guess.  So catch yall soon guys.
