#weekend coffee share!

If we were having a coffee today, or tomorrow, or any time this weekend, I’d tell you that I am at my parents house, and I am usually here every weekend! I normally come to my parents after my shift on friendly call which I do on Friday afternoons. Occasionally I will stay at home for the weekend, but normally I don’t.

I’d tell you that today I visited my friend Norma. She gave me a nice gift for my birthday, which is next Friday, I’m going to be 39! Omg! 39 guys! I am so old!

She gave me earrings! They are shaped like hearts and I love them!

I’d tell you that my dog is sleeping soundly by my feet. He is such a wimp. Tonight I was watching britains got talent on tv, and every time the buzzers went off to say that the judges didn’t like someone, he’d jump up and be all freaked out! He doesn’t like the noise of them! I had to take him out of the room until it was over, which also meant I couldn’t watch it either, boo!

I’d tell you that mom and me are going to Killarney in county Kerry next weekend, for a mother daughter weekend away for my birthday! And I cannot wait! I am so excited!

I’d tell you that mom is also going to come over to my house tomorrow when I am going home, and help me to do a few things, like clean my yard, there’s dog poop out there, yucky! And so she’ll clean it up for me since I cant, since I am blind!

And that’s about it for the weekend! I hope you all had a nice one! I hope whatever you did, you had fun!


#Weekend coffee share!

Hi everyone! I thought I’d participate in the weekend coffee share!

Weekend Coffee Share is a time for us to take a break out of our lives and enjoy some time catching up with friends (old and new)!

Grab a cup of coffee and share with us! What’s been going on in your life? What are your weekend plans? Is there a topic you’ve just been ruminating on that you want to talk about?

All are welcome! Just add your link to the Linky-List, and be sure to visit others and join in their conversations! The link will be open from Friday February 8th at 7am (Pacific Time) until Monday February 11th at 7am (Pacific Time) to give us a good range of “weekend”!

How was your weekend?
Mine was ok. It was very quiet and chilled out. I didn’t do much on Saturday.
I read a lot. As I think I mentioned I’m reading one child by torey hayden. I am loving it. It is a really good read!
I have therapy tomorrow morning. Well this morning now as its 4 AM here now on Monday morning. I hope I’ll have a good therapy session. I’m a little anxious about it.
Weather today is supposed to be good I think. I hope it stays dry. We’re not getting a whole lot of cold lately. We got some rain this weekend and wind though.
Well, I had better drink my coffee before it goes cold!
Happy weekend to you all! I hope you had fun whatever you did!

If we were having coffee…weekend coffee share

Weekend coffee share at eclectic alli’s


I decided to participate this week in the weekend coffee share.  So sit back, put your feet up, and enjoy a nice drink. Hot or cold, your choice. I have hot tea, coffee, juice, milk, water, and that’s about it.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve had a nice relaxed afternoon. I was meant to go to normas, but then my dad needed help with some stuff so he asked me if I’d help him, so I didn’t end up going to normas after all. I made plans to go there tomorrow, though.

I would tell you that norma got an amazon echo dot, and she has asked me to help her set it up. She also set up an amazon and audible account, so she asked me to download some books for her, which I am very happy to help her with. I recommend alexa to everyone. Its an amazing piece of technology.

I would tell you I had chicken curry for dinner, and it was delicious. Mom had made a huge batch of it last week, and we froze some of it, so rather than having my dad cook for me, I just took that out of the freezer. I do have to say though it was extremely hot! I drank a lot of water while I ate it!

I would tell you that nitro is acting very strange tonight. he’s panting a lot. I just let him out so I am not sure why he’s doing that. he’s literally on top of me breating heavily. maybe he wants to go back outside, after I finish writing I’ll let him out.

I’d tell you that I talked to mom again this afternoon, she’s loving camping. And having lots of fun. I’m pleased for her.  She seems like she’s having a blast.

what would you tell me if we were having coffee?


If we were having coffee…

So its late. Its 2 AM. I am up though so I decided to write.
If we were having coffee I’d tell you that tonight me and nitro we ate a huge tupperwear tub of fresh fruit all cut up. I was eating it and my boy was being his usual begging self, and coming over to me all nose and paws and wanting some. So of course I couldn’t resist. I ended up giving him a ton of mandarin orange slices. I gave him so much of the orange slices that I was thinking oh god what if he gets an upset stomach? But no, he’s quite happy and content on his blanket beside me fast asleep.
I would tell you that after our day today at the lake mom decided to spend the evening at her brothers house, her brother had also come to the lake with us. I decided that I wouldn’t tag along. Instead I watched the voice kids on tv. It was awesome. What a final! All the kids in the final were so talented! I didn’t expect the child who won it to actually win!
I would tell you that tomorrow my sister will come to our parents house and we’ll all have sunday dinner together, its a ritual for us, most weeks we have a big sunday family dinner. This weekend we’re having roast pork, roast potatos, turnip, peas, mashed potatos and gravy and Yorkshire puddings, yum! I must say I do look forward to our sunday dinners. My dad cooks them. He’s an amazing cook too.
I’d tell you that our weather has heated up again. We have had temps in the mid to late 20’s celcius for the past 8 weeks. Its been great. No rain at all in over 50 days! A tiny bit of drizzle the other night but nothing much at all. Its been great and we’ve had plenty of barbecues in this hot weather. I’ve also had to have my fan on constantly and while at my parents I leave my bedroom window open to leave air in.
I’d tell you that this week is a busy one for me with appointments. Especially on Monday, I have both my therapy session with Eileen on Monday morning and I will see my psychiatrist dr. barry in the afternoon. I am looking forward to both appointments. It will be my second last therapy session before Eileen goes on vacation. We have a ton to talk about, including preparing for her vacation.
So that’s about it for this chatty post, what would you tell me if we were having coffee?

A late weekend coffee share!

So its the weekend coffee share over at eclectic allys!

I’m late this week but here goes! 😀


Weekend coffee share!


If we were having coffee I’d tell you that last weekend we had a bbq…just me, my mom and my dad. My sister was gone to her partners family for dinner on sunday, so we decided to have a bbq just the 3 of us.  It was lovely.  We barbecued sausages, burgers and ribs. I even got to have leftovers.  I’d tell you that its now Tuesday and I didn’t sleep very well last night. I think I managed about 3 hours of sleep. I have to go volunteering today and I am wondering how I’ll keep my eyes open.  I love volunteering though so am looking forward to it.  I’d tell you that my social worker Mary just phoned me to tell me that the organisation that we applied to for funding were on to her, with a break down of the funding I received from them so far.  I have a little bit of money left to spend, and now I’m wondering what to spend it on, because its not lots of money, and things are so expensive.  I also asked Mary if she’d help me apply for more PA hours.  She said she’d ring me about that next week. I know she’s very busy so that’s ok with me.  I know she will ring me when she’s ready.  I’d tell you that today before I go volunteering my dad is calling to me, he has to drop off some butter and my water which mom bought me, which I need as its very hot here.  I’d tell you that I heard on the news that the weather is supposed to change over the next few days, we’re supposed to get tons of rain and some storms as well.  We need some rain though.  Its been so hot here lately.  I like hot weather but right now I’m kinda fed up with the heat. I want a bit of rain, it will cool things off.  I’d tell you that my friend is coming over tonight, and we’re going to hang out. I’ll be helping her to put a new book onto her phone.  She just finished one I gave her recently, it was called beautiful boy and she liked it a lot.  Well that’s about it for this late weekend coffee share, thanks for joining me 😀

#weekend coffee share

If we were having coffee this morning, I’d tell you that we did not get much sleep last night. If we got 2 hours it was a lot. Despite all that, we woke up at 6:30 AM, decided to get up and start our day. My thing is there’s no point to laying there thinking, especially when your thoughts are a jumbled mess and swirling around like crazy. So I got up, fed Nitro, let him out, and then had a shower. I would tell you that I ate a very healthy breakfast of some fruit, and now as I type this I am drinking a nice hot cup of coffee.
I would tell you that my plan for today is to go to my parents for dinner, and spend the night. Mom is packing my bag, nice of her to pack for me isnt it? So yeah she’s packing my bag for tomorrow, and as usual tomorrow we’ll go to therapy in the morning and then go on to our independent living skills course.
I would tell you that my sister was away for the weekend with her partner and kids, and she’s back today, they went to Killarney, wish I was with them too!
I hope your all having a fantastic weekend!

if we were having coffee

if we were having coffee, i’d tell you i’m almost out of coffee. when i went to make mine just now, the jar was almost empty. i’d tell you i put four sweeteners into my coffee. i’m trying to avoid sugar, and before anyone says so, i do realise sweeteners are worse than sugar. the real reason i use sweeteners instead of sugar is because i am blind, and when i spoon the sugar into my coffee i spill so much of it, with sweeteners, you just pop them out of the container and plop in they go into the coffee. i’d tell you that i am bored. i have been watching tv to try and entertain myself. i watched britains got talent tonight. there were three very good singers on it. 2 14 year olds and a 15 year old. the 15 year old was a boy and he had been on the show three years ago when he was just 12 and one of the judges told him he wasnt good enough and to go get a singing teacher. today, he proved him wrong! he sang halaluiyah and he put his whole heart into his performance. and you know what happened? not only did he get through to the next round, but the judge who told him before that he wasnt good enough gave him the golden buzzer which means he’s straight through to the semi finals of the show! he was so thrilled and i was thrilled for him. if we were having coffee i would tell you that my sister has gone to her partners sisters house in kilkenny. thats a drive of about 2 hours away from where we live. her partners sisters little boy is making his communion tomorrow. there are lots of children making their communion this month. may is usually the month for making your communion. if we were having coffee i would also tell you that i am watching this talk show on tv right now. there was a lady on it talking about smart phones and how no child under 14 should have one. i agree with her. most kids nowadays have a tablet or a phone or something that has internet. i dont think its good for them. i our day, you’d think i’m old lol i guess i am at 37, but in our day, there was no internet. children went outside to play. we played with wooden toys. with dolls and stuffed animals. with lego. with skipping ropes. with puzzles. we played bord games. we spent time talking to our friends, not bullying each other online. i’m all for having the internet but there is a time when it is just too much, and that is at age 7 or 8. children dont need to be exposed to that sort of technology then. i see my nephew at 4 addicted to his tablet and my sisters I phone. i cant imagine what he’ll be like at 10. and on that note I’ll stop ranting and shut up. i’m sure your all bored of my ranting and rambles. have a great weekend everyone.
