Grocery shop

I just got home a little bit ago. I went to the grocery store with my mum and my sister. I had to do some grocery shopping. I got a lot of nice things so I have plenty of food for the week now. I’m even making fajitas this week, I got a fajita kit and will make chicken fajitas. I’m looking forward to having them. I also got a ton of fruit and some water and some Coke and other bits and pieces that I needed. My mum running to the store for me while I waited in the car which was nice because it meant I could rest and just be on my phone. The main reason she did that for me was because we had the dog with us. I didn’t have his harness with me so I couldn’t bring him into the store. So I just stayed in the car and was on Facebook and looking at email. My nephew stayed with me he’s seven. He was watching YouTube on his mum’s phone. When my mum got done we came up to my house and she help me put all the food away. Then she cleaned my yard. No I’m just resting for a little while. Mum left about a half an hour a go. We are under a severe weather warning tonight. There is a weather warning for snow and ice. There’s also a weather warning for wind and I think rain as well before the snow and ice. If it does snow I won’t be able to go to therapy in the morning. I also won’t be able to start my mobility lessons tomorrow if it snows hard. So we’ll see what happens. But for now I’m just having a nice relaxing chilled out evening at home.

i wish

its jaylee. im 9. I wish I was going shopping for dresses tomorrow! I like dresses, they’re so pretty. I want to try on all of the dresses in the store. like lauren is doing. carol anne said if we lose enough weight we might get a dress for laurens confirmation too. I hope we can. I want to look pretty! we have to get rid of our belly first though.

that’s the hard part, our belly is fat. I hate it. we need to do more exercise to get it to go down! exercising is hard but its the only way to get rid of fat, well eating healthy also, but that doesn’t get rid of it.

I hope lauren finds a nice pretty dress. she’s probably gonna try lots of them on. she’s excited to go. I would be too I think.

Friday morning thoughts

Its Friday! Another weekend is coming! Yay!
I am feeling amazing this morning! I went to bed early last night and I slept great!
I woke up at 5 AM and I hopped out of bed!
I’ve had two cups of coffee already and its not 7 AM yet!
My PA is coming at 9 this morning. We’re just going to do housework I think. I was meant to go get my nails done and my eyebrows waxed but I just didnt have enough money to do it this week so I rescheduled my apt for 2 weeks time!
I work later on this afternoon also. I am looking forward to going into work. We lost a client over christmas, I dont think I mentioned it to you all. I didnt know the client very well, but I had spoken to her once or twice. She died at home and it was sad but it was what she wanted.
After work I will go to my parents house for the weekend. Mom is making chicken curry for dinner, yum! I love her chicken curry! I will certainly enjoy that.
I think I’ll go visit my friend Norma this weekend. I will probably go tomorrow. Mom and my sis are taking Lauren shopping for her confirmation dress, and I dont want to go with them because they’ll be spending hours going in and out of shops trying on dresses and its just not my cup of tea not when I am not the one oing the trying on!
Well guys, have a great Friday!

So much for relaxing

Well so much for relaxing at home. I didnt get to do that. Instead mom took me grocery shopping. We went at 4:30. It is 8 PM now and we just got home a half hour ago. I’ve decided that tomorrow, after the friendly call christmas party, I’ll go home, I was waiting until Thursday to go home but decided tomorrow is as good a time as any to go. Mom said she’d drop nitro off and she said she’d drop off my computer and the dog food as well. So we did my groceries tonight, and we dropped them off at my house, mom helped me to put them all away, love her for it!

So now that I’m back at moms house, I am able to chill. I am exhausted. I just need to put my feet up. My back is giving, the end of it is hurting from walking around a lot and carrying a lot of heavy bags.

I had fun with mom though. We got some clothes for my dad. I decided to give him some clothes for christmas as well as money. So we bought him a sweater and a shirt and some shoes and slippers. He’ll be delighted with all that.

Now I am going to make a coffee. I need it. I doubt I’m going to get any sleep. I’m wound up. I’ve been feeling the littles close by. Some of them have been scared and upset and I am not sure why. They get scared by crowds and triggered in the store.

Time to go make that coffee now, and then read my book for a while.

Christmas gift list Completed and other updates

My shopping for Christmas is now 100 percent completed! I wrote out cards for my mom and dad today and I put the money I am giving them in them. Now I’m done and so happy to be finished!

I feel like I’ve accomplished a lot this holiday season already! I have bought for everyone on my list. I am organised, or more organised than I have been in a few years. Last year I wasn’t this organised!

I can now enjoy the lead up to Christmas! Next weekend mom and my sis and me and the kids are going to glow, which is a festival here in cork city, its on every year for the month of December, we’ll go and have some food in the food market, go on the big ferris wheel, and then go in to the Christmas winter wonderland that has been created in one of our city parks!

I am so excited about going! Its one of the highlights of Christmas for us each year!

Mom took my sister shopping today for clothes, she’s giving both my sis and me clothes for Christmas, but she will also probably give us a couple of little surprise gifts, she normally does. She wanted my sis to pick out her own clothes, I got to pick out mine last weekend.

I’ve also bought myself a new outfit to wear for the friendly call Christmas party, which is this coming Wednesday. That will be a nice get together. We’ll spend time with the clients, have a meal and some music and stuff. I am planning on getting all dressed up, putting on make up and having a fun filled day! The volunteers and staff from friendly call are planning on going out afterwords, once all of the clients get dropped home. I don’t think I’m going to go with them though. I am not drinking due to dieting, and so I don’t feel up to going into town socialising.

I’ll enjoy the Christmas party though! We’re having a raffle to, and each of our clients will get a gift. All of us the volunteers had to bring in a few gifts each so that there is something for every client.

So that is my little christmasy update! I am a very happy camper tonight! College done and dusted, Christmas gift list complete, what more could I ask for!

Got all the gifts sorted!

c i got all of the shopping done and over with! now i can breathe! i have everyones gifts now. now all i have to do is put money in a card for mom and dad! we had a lovely day out. i got some clothes for my nephew, and my sister said she was going to let him wear them on christmas day. i got him a pants, and a christmas top that says “dear santa, I want it all”. Lol. I also got him a fleece to wear over the top. So he’s all set. I also got him two x box games, I had to return the ones I got him last week as I got them for the wrong console, but the store I bought them at took them back, and I only had to pay the balance for the ones I chose instead, I had my sister help me pick them for him because I knew she’d know what he likes. She chose a lego game and a transformers game. So now thats his gifts gotten. Mom bought me a lovely t shirt top that says “believe in yourself” on it. I loved it when I saw it. I will wear it with my new checky leggings. I bought a few christmas cards which I will be sending out to my friends, need to get my mom to help me write those tonight. We had our lunch out too. I had a nice bowl of homemade vegetable soup, and a turkey sandwich with relish on it. My sister got most of laurens gifts today too. I also went to the grocery part of the supermarket to get my fruit for the week and a few other bits I needed, like milk, yoghurt etc. I’m exhausted now but I am very happy. With 3 weeks to go until christmas, I’m sorted. Now I can enjoy myself coming up to the holidays, we’ll be going places, this week we are going to a craft fare on friday, and soon we’ll go to the christmas festival thats on in our city, we’re also going to see the coca cola truck, you know the big one thats in all the coke adverts. My sisters taking the kids to see it and then to visit santa, and mom and me are also going. I just need to get my college presentation over with this coming weekend on saturday, and then I can really start enjoying the festivities.

A fun day out at christmas time

Mom and my sister and me are going to a local shopping centre this afternoon to do a little more christmas shopping. I dont really have to do much, I have everything taken care of, but I do need to change some x box games I got for my nephew, so I’ll do that, and I also need to pick up a few lottery tickets, christmas cards etc. My dad asked me to get him some chocolate, so I’ll also get that. My sister is going to buy a few things for Lauren for christmas, she doesnt know exactly what she is going to get her, so she wants to look around to see what she can find. Lauren is at that age where she doesnt play with toys, and she has most electronics, a phone etc. So what do you buy her? I got her the headset for the x box, and a gift voucher to a clothing store she likes to shop at, so I have her gift sorted. It will be nice to go out for the day. Not sure if we’ll eat out or not, we might, we’ll see how it goes. My nephew has a birthday party to go to, so my sister will drop him off there before we hit the shops. Mom wants to also have my sister pick out a jeans and top which will be her gift from mom and dad this christmas. Mom bought me a lovely top with a red roses pattern on it. She also bought me some nice checky leggings, and she said she’ll get me a black dress top to go with those. Those are my main christmas gifts, but I am sure she’s gotten me a few surprises as well, she always does. Now that its the 1st of December, I am excited. The christmas atmosphere is all around, and, I love it.
