listening to

I like to watch music video shows on the weekend, so I can find new music to listen to.

My favourites lately have been :  Birdy, Pink and Florence & the Machine.

A couple of new albums I think I will like, that I havent listened to much yet are :

No Doubt – Push & Shove

Muse – 2nd Law

BUT, I will still be sticking with my favourite bands and will love them always, and loving their lastest albums (shown below).

Smashing Pumpkins – Oceania

Marilyn Manson – Born Vilian

Linkin Park – Living Things

30 Seconds To Mars – This is War

What are you listening to at the moment?

Am I missing out on some great music that you are listening to?



long weekend coming up!


I have a half day tomorrow and then three days off 🙂

bf has to work Saturday, so I still get “my alone time”.

I think we have brekky with a friend we havent seen for ages on Sunday.  Still havent had confirmation from SMS I sent them earlier.  So typical of X.

I loooove brekky food. 🙂

Other than that, we are planless.  Oh, and go to Bunnings to see if they have the big light bulbs for the tiny terrariums.

The weather is going to be about 20 degrees.  Average, but that’s OK if its not raining.

Not sure what I want to do or what we can do.  Hmmmm….

Anyone got any exciting plans for the weekend?

made it

Well I made it through the weekend.

Most of Saturday was spent on the couch watching TV I had recorded and catching up with Weeds and Sons of Anarchy Episode One of the new Season.

We went to a friends house for a BBQ for a catchup.  The usual suspects were there, as it had been a while since the last BBQ.  brought a couple of his light sabres and everyone turned into their inner child and had a few laughs with a few rounds of light sabre competitions.

On Sunday we went to one of bf’s colleagues Engagement BBQ out in the burbs.  Somewhere I had never been to.

I didnt know anyone there, but a couple of bf’s colleagues were there with their girlfriends, so we all chatted.

Then it was Sunday night and time to prepare ourselves for the five day week ahead at work.  Yippeeee!!!! NOT!

Sabre Wars –


a beautiful day

The sky is so blue and it is warm in the sun.  A bit of a chilly wind, but its is only the beginning of spring, so it will get warmer soon.

I wasnt able to get to sleep for a while when I went back to bed about 2.30am this morning and had weird dreams.

I think I forgot to take my meds yesterday, which usually brings on the weirder dreams.

Sometimes I have dreams that I have had before or dreams in a place that I have been to before in a dream.  Weird.  It’s like de ja vu in a dream.

Is it just me?

Ive got a bit of a brain ache and sore neck, bring on the Advil.  Other than that I feel  good today.  YEY!

The painter is here fixing the wall where it was all mouldy due to a leak in the bathroom.  Once he is done I can go and do what I need to do.

The P.O. and a little bit of shopping and some hot chippies from the chicken shop at the shopping centre.

I believe I am a chip connoisseur 🙂  I love chippies.  These chippies are in my top three of the best chippies around, that I have found.

If a pub or restaurant cant cook a good chip, then what is the point.  Thumbs down from me.

They have to be nice and crispy and golden.  Nothing worse than soft chips.

Like KFC , Red Rooster and other take away shops.

I used to buy KFC chippies back in the day when they were crispy.  Now they all put them on a timer and they are soft. 😐

It’s just not OK. 😐

After that, I dont have much to do.  Some more blog reading and a much needed nap to catch up on lasts night lack of sleep is in order.

Ive nearly finished transferring all my data to my Mac and then I can make the final transition.

I just have to find the Firefox and Thunderbird files with all my favourites and email and Im pretty much done.

It will be goodbye old friend (my Dell laptop).  It has been a good, reliable laptop.  I still cant believe after over a decade of buying Dells that I am going to the darkside.

The rest of the day (what is left of it after a nap) and tonight will be a nice relaxing night at home with bf and the kitties.

And tomorrow we are planless at this stage.

Maybe brekky at a cafe and then off to the Apple store to get a SuperDrive.  Who knows what after that.  Relax time at home.  It is bfs only day off, so he will enjoy that.

Our herbs and cat plants are still alive, although I had to move the cat mint and the catnip, because Morpheus was pigging out on them.  Norty kitty 🙂  Must like a good high.  lol.

I hope you all have a great Saturday. 🙂

yoga by the sea

I have signed up to do 10 classes of yoga by the sea.

I wont start it for at least a month, as I want to wait for the weather to warm up, so I can do the outdoor class at Bondi Icebergs.

Im hoping it will help my depression and anxiety, and also help me relax and give my body a good stretch.

It is doing outdoor yoga at Bondi Beach @ Icebergs Club and indoor yoga classes at Tamarama Beach and Bronte Beach indoors, but  looking over the ocean.

Sounds like a fabulous way to start the weekend.  I just hope I am more motivated by then.  I will have to drive for at least 20 – 30 minutes to get there, but that early in the morning, traffic should be good.

If it’s a nice day, I can always do the Bondi to Bronte run or walk OR go swimming at any of the three beaches before the hordes of people flock in from the outer suburbs.

I miss living at Bondi Beach and being able to walk down the road to the beach, do the Bondi to Bronte run and then go for a swim and lay on the beach, before all the hordes of outer suburbians turn up and then stroll back home.

Aaahhhh those were the days.

I’d love to live down there again. 🙂

sabre sunday

Well today bf & I  went to our first sabre (fencing) class.

It was fun!  I sweated heaps and was very puffed out.  I am still congested from the flu, which probably made it harder.

But still fun!

We are now going to do a 10 week beginners course once a week.  Three which are already paid for with a deal we go.

$99 for an Introductory class, three beginner classes and our own sabre to keep.

The lady told us the centre only opened a couple of months ago, which is probably why we didnt even know it was there.

The fencing world is a very small niche of people and this centre wants to open it up more to the public to get new people trying and joining in the sabre niche.

After we did a bit off grocery shopping and we are going to try lentil burgers for dinner.  Should be interesting.

Then chill, watch some tele and rest for Monday. 😐  Monday comes around so quickly.

So, a much needed positive blog from me today.

Hope you all had great weekends 🙂

sleep & hibernation

I feel so tired all the time.

All I want to do is stay in bed and sleep.

On a weekend I will only get out of bed when I get a cute paw on my face, which is his way of nicely telling me to get out of bed. Or if I have to wee.

I was going to meet up with friends for brekky this morning, but I just didnt want to get out of bed or leave the house. I hibernate all weekend and havent met up with the fitness group on a Saturday morning for a few weeks now.

I wish I never had to leave the house.

I dont even answer my phone.

When I not having issues with insomnia, which is now thankfully, I could sleep forever.  Im hoping the other night was a “one of”.

Even after only being awake for a couple of hours, I am ready to go back to bed and sleep.

My whole body feels tired.  I can even feel it in my arms and my fingers.
