Celebrating some birthdays!

Tomorrow my nephew turns 7! And on Sunday his dad turns 32.

My sister took both of them away for a weekend break to Killarney!

Killarney is like our second home! Its cool there. Its easy to get to its only an hour and a half drive from cork!

My nephew wants to go to the aquadome which is a huge swimming pool for his birthday so they are going to do that and then go bolling and at dinner that evening my sister is going to ask the restaurant to bring out a cake.

I gave him money for his birthday, I think my sis is going to take him to a toyshop in Killarney to spend it.

I got my sisters partner some lottery tickets, so I hope he wins on them!

A perfect saturday

im having a good day. i woke up at the butt crack of dawn. I was so hungry. I went to the kitchen and got a pear, then I promptly fell back to sleep after I ate it.Then of course Nitro woke me up. He wanted out. So I let him out and then got up. Showered and ate breakfast. Mom and me decided to go out. I was going to the gym to do a workout. I did the bike, 2 KM on it. I did the treadmill for 20 minutes too. I didnt lift weights today though. It was a great workout. I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt so good afterwords. Exercise really does lift my mood. My mood was a little bit low today. Not sure why, I just felt off. But after my workout I felt good again. My mood picked up. We decided to walk to the gym, even though it was drizzling rain. We were going to get a bus, but we decided we’d have to wait too long for one so we just walked. It only takes 10 or 12 minutes to get to the gym from moms house. AFter my gym workout we went across the street to a local shopping mall. I wanted to do a little bit of christmas shopping. I ended up getting my friend norma some tommy girl perfume. I also got my uncle a gift set. Just a little gift set with body wash and other stuff in it. I got my nephew a birthday present, he’s six on friday. I got him a road blocks set, you know, he’s really into road blocks. Then I wanted to look for some jeans to wear. Its been years since I was able to fit in a pair of jeans. I found some that I loved. I tried two pairs. And one fit really well. So I bought that, and I also got a nice dress top to wear. It was lovely. I thought both the jeans and top would come to 35 euro, but when I went up to pay they only came to 32 euro. So I saved a little on them. I ended up also going in and buying some fruit for the week, some milk, and the ingredients for a chili. We were going to cook this afternoon but mom said she is feeling tired so she asked if it is ok if she waits until tomorrow morning to cook. We got a taxi home. Tonight I have to go to church, there is this mass on for all the people in the parish who have died in the past year. My aunt died last year and so she is included in the mass. So all of the family are going to it. I plan on wearing my new outfit to church. Im kinda apprehensive about going. I dont normally go to church as its triggering to us. I go if I have to, like for funerals, confirmations, etc. But I do need to go tonight to show my respect. So I will do it. I hope it will be ok though. I’m a little worried about it. Other than all that though it has been a great saturday so far.

This house is so quiet without my niece and nephew

you know, normally at the weekend my sister comes over to our parents with her kids. not this weekend. i’m sad. and i miss them. the house feels so empty. and so so quiet. dead. no noise no shouting and screaming and yelling. i hate the silence. yesterday we all were together for the afternoon. my sister stayed for dinner after collecting the kids from school because her partner was getting their car valeted. we had burgers and salad and it was nice. the kids were in high spirits. after dinner mom and me went to the store so i could get money out of the ATM. when my niece asked me where i was going and i said the store and she was like on your own? in this horrified way lol. she’s so cute. then my nephew was asking me do you have games on your phone? to which i said yes but you arent allowed to have it. he was almost crying lol he is so addicted to the phone and tablet. i miss their antics today. i wish they’d come over. they entertain me. they are so adorable. i wont see them tomorrow either and normally my sisters comes for dinner on sundays too. so that means now i wont see them until after i get back from respite. which wont be until next friday. that feels like a long time.
