Blog Every Day In May - Day 6: 'What do I do?'

If you couldn't answer with your job, how would you answer the question, 'what do you do'?
It is a good question.

I have many jobs....

- Doctor/Nurse
- Referee
- Chef
- Accountant
- Taxi driver
- Laundromat operator
- A 'Mrs Fix-It' (it usually involves tape)
- Personal shopper
- Personal Assistant
- Cleaner
- Teacher
- Landscaper
- Hair stylist
- Nutritionist
- Personal trainer
- Negotiator
- List maker!

Soooooo, if I couldn't use any of those, then I would have to say, I do nothing...... but then again, I think I deserve that! As we all do!

Blog Every Day In May - Day 5: Professing my LOVE!

Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don't have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member.

This is todays topic.

So today, I would like to shout to the rooftops. Climb every mountain, swim every shore, to publically announce that I love ........ {drum roll please}.......

Too many bloggers equally!! I can't just choose one!! So I thought I would just make a list for you to peruse at your own pace .....

Seven Cherubs

No Excuses! Easy Organising For Large Families

The Simple Mummy

Let The Wildflowers Grow

The Aussie Hausfrau

I could go on, and on, and on, and on, and on..... But these are the ones I stalk visit often! Like daily! So, I love you all! I think everyone who blogs is amazing, and they all inspire me.

Blog everyday in May: day 3- Things that make you uncomfortable.

So, I was asking hubby what he thought made me uncomfortable.......

He rattled off an enormous list. I personally think he may have exaggerated just a liiiittle bit!

Things like public speaking, confrontation, snakes, spiders, and the smell of farts, they all came in on the list.

But at the top of my list, is the one and only thing that makes my skin crawl with unease.

FEET!!!!!!! Ewwwwww!!!

I don't mind my own feet. But other people's bare feet. Nope. I can't do it. I can not go near them!

It is only bare feet mind you. Socks I can deal with.

Often hubby lays on the couch with his feet up. After more then 7 years, he has grown to know he can not, absolutely can NOT put his feet up on the couch ANYWHERE near me! Even laying in bed sometimes, he might accidentally shuffle his feet over, and if those feet touch me, I just about scream and I instantly feel the need for a boiling hot shower.

I'm strange and I know, I wriggle my toes and I show it. Yeah!!

So there you go, I hate feet. My kids feet are ok, but now they are getting older they are starting to freak me out more.

I think it is the toe nails that freak me out the most. I don't know. Honestly, I don't care as it is an easy thing to avoid...... Unless I upset hubby, then I'm doomed as he only has to wriggle his toes in my direction, and it's over with, I'm screwed and he wins. Lol.

So yeah...... Feet.

Blog Everyday In May - Day 2: Education is the key!

Today's challenge for Blog Everyday In May is: Educate us on something you know a lot about, or are good at.

Well, to be honest, I wanted to skip today. I have issues and don't think I am good at anything, or know enough about something to educate anybody on the subject. So, I have had to have a long hard think. This is what I come up with......

Feelings Aren't Facts!!

This is a mantra that my hubby has taught me over the years. He is a very intelligent man (even though he doesn't think so!!) and he reads a lot, researches a lot of random things, and self educates himself - and me - along the way.

This is one of the stand out sayings that he has spouted. There are many more, but this one I love.

I get emotional a lot, the whole range of emotions. I suppose you could called it '50 Shades of Emotions' {Pause for laughs here!}

He has over the years taught me, that just because we feel something, an emotion, or a put down in our head, it doesn't mean it is true.

I thought I would talk about this subject matter as I have a sneaking suspicion that there are a lot of other mums out there like me, who put themselves down in their head, or feel things that aren't always on the positive side.

So to all the mums who have thoughts that vear along the same lines as mine, rest assured. Just because you 'feel' that way, doesn't always mean it is the way. The sooner we all start to look at why we are feeling this way, the better. Because......

Feelings Aren't Facts!

They are just a feeling.

Chin up mamma's, get the facts of your emotions, and then you can start to learn about what causes them, why they are happening, and ultimately, how deal with them better.

I would also like to say a HUGE thank you to my hubby, who has sat with me countless times over the last 7 1/2 years, through the tears, the depressive thoughts, and all the negatives, and have told me simply, Feelings Aren't Facts. He has taught me how to listen to my feelings, and work through them.

{Disclaimer:} I am not always 'in tune' with my feeling and can throw a massive bitch fest and go off the rails too. Sometimes 'Feelings Aren't Facts' gets thrown out the window in pieces and fed to the birds. We are all human after all. :)

Linking up! 250 words - story about my life..... Day 1

OK so i have stumbled across a blogging challenge, and have decided to roll with it. I will be (attempting) to blog everyday, for the month of May. So, here it goes.

Day 1: The story of your life, in 250 words or less.

(Please don't count!! lol)

Born in Essendon in Melbourne. Moved to central Victoria when I was 5 with the whole family. Mum, dad, my brother who is 8 years older then me and myself moved to a very small town called St.Arnaud when I was about 7. Moved back to Central Victoria when I was 12 and stayed put.

My parents separated when I was 14, I had a baby at 16 and separated from her father. Fell in love with my soul mate/best friend/most annoying person at times. Had babies with him at 18, 20 and 22. Engaged, waiting for funds to be a Mrs! 

Mum passed away last year (2012) and I miss her like crazy. Making changes and moving up and on with my life, focusing more on myself.

I like wine and cheese ...... preferably together! :D

While you're here, why not check out this blog....... :)
