True beauty in our cruel world

This is the most beautiful photo depicting the emotional connection like humans. We all (animal and human) know emotions and we all feel love and pain.

Compassion and kindness

Letting go

It’s my first born sons birthday tomorrow and I wrote a little something from the heart

i made a wish, once upon a time

That everything in my life

would work out fine

Enter one little boy we named Kade

My heart was full

He was more perfect than for all I had prayed

The cutest little man I ever did see

Innocence, cheekiness, mischievousness was bestowed upon me

He held my hand for many years

As he got older, he let go

I shed motherly tears

It’s ok though

Seeds you must sow

Live your life

I’ll watch you beautifully grow

Your hand may no longer be in mine

My love for you in one sentence I define

I love you more today than yesterday, but not as much as tomorrow

I love you to the moon and back infinity

❤️❤️❤️❤️

Happy birthday from the proudest Mum in the world

Better Than Sex

What is “Better than Sex”?

Dessert and luscious or should I say lushfull drinks.

Do I have your attention now? An adults only dessert restaurant right here in Key West. Did we go? Of course? A dark little restaurant, taking you back to the 20s era, bordello style, where you are led to your own private little booth. The menu is given to you modern day style, on an iPad. It is vast and fabulous, tickling your tastebuds.

Delectable desserts such as Cookie Nookie, Fork you fondue, Kinky key lime pie, Missionary crisp ( I had that one) to tantalise your taste buds and drinks with a twist, champagne, beers, one with a white chocolate and coconut rim ( called a rim job), I had a vodka wine with chocolate drizzled through the glass and rimmed in caramel. Coffees oozing mouth watering decadence. This is not the place to count calories. I just died and went to sugar heaven. You leave this establishment feeling quite naughty, with a look of sheer delight and satisfaction on your face.

Our punishment this evening for this ultimate decadence was received and served, leaving the heavenly venue we were hit with torrential rains that resulted in us having to run. Some one up there encouraging us to burn some calories.

Red Wine

237FD30E-D57E-49EB-BC72-9B68B51DD396

Sitting at an airport bar

Heading to a destination abroad 

a new land afar

Sipping on an airport drink

Cheers to our next adventure 

I say with a wink

Red wine for me 

A beer for you

No duty free shopping

We needed something to do

It’s tastes so fine

This red wine o mine 

Now a situation arises

An Unlikely event 

My flight is called

Finish my wine, they will not prevent 

That I do not finish this wine o mine

I will, I’ll finish it, it tastes so divine

This glass of wine I will most likely finish 

The level of the wine in this glass

Will most definitely diminish 

Cheers to me

For when it comes tomorrow 

A brand new place I will be

Destination Known

Destination unvisited

Excited hardly explains how I have been feeling for the past week

3 weeks here I come. First stop LA, for a over night stay. A fifteen hour flight on the new qantas Dreamliner. 15 hours. Whilst excited about the trip, dread filled me when I thought about the flight. I am without doubt a jet lagger. Yes, I suffer.

Armed with my melatonin for a hopefully successful transition into my new destination. I just needed to get through the long flight. I almost feel claustrophobic on an aeroplane. Cramped seats, no fresh air, no escape. Dread!

The Dreamliner was a smaller plane and I made sure with by chatting, then adorning my pleading face to the lovely check in attendant, please please can I have an aisle seat. Success.

Sitting here at LAX, I’m thankful and surprised at the ease of this flight. It went quick, it was comfortable, it was a piece of cake.

Is this new airplane what dreams are made of? Not exactly if you are in economy but it is a hell of a lot better.

The trip itself. First movie, STRONGER with Jake gyllenhal. Wow. Moving. About Jeff Bauman. The spectator who lost his legs at Boston marathon bombing.

Food. Aeroplane food, hmmmm. It was edible. Hey did you know, that they now have little treats on board these new dreamliners. Dreams are only made of this. 😛 okay a bit cheesy. It is a help yourself cupboard. Soft drinks, water, chocolate, cookies, cheese and biccies, fruit. I may have visited that little comfort cupboard once or twice. Deserved though, after I had done a few crazy yoga stretches which had staff chatting and laughing, I’m going to say with me, not at me. Comfort food deserved! I grabbed myself a little comfort pack also, containing ear plugs, eye patch and tooth brush.

Back to my seat. Fluffy bed socks on, check.Ear plugs in, check. Eye patch in place, check, Noise cancelling ear phones over top of my ear plugs. Indeed an attractive sight. I meditated, then attempted sleep.

I actually dozed. Very rare for me as a chronic non sleeper in life in general, let a lone flying. Yes, I dozed. I woke, turned the one way, I watch 10 minutes of a new movie, dozed again, turned again. Then I experienced whiplash, you know that severe head drop that feels like you have just detached you head from your neck. You know the one I mean? It wakes you up with a bang, probably 6 times.

After a few hours and feeling thankful my head was still attached, we were served breakfast or was it lunch, no it was dinner. According to my Aussie time schedule it should have been breakfast, according to my new Los Angeles time schedule it was dinner. So let’s call it dinner-break and forwhat should have been my breakfast, I was served and ate a Greek salad and garlic bread. Noice!!!

Movie number 2. A beautiful movie about friendship, love, heartbreak. Set in one of my favorite places in the world, Italy. Call me by your name. Watch it!

We are here. LA. We have just travelled back in time. We left melbourne Friday 4th at 9.30pm and arrive after a 15 hour flight on Friday 4th at 7pm.

That could be movie title “back to the past “ , which in 3 weeks allows me to say Back to the Future (part 105)

Let the adventure begin.

May 5th 11am welcome aboard America Airlines flight 2580 to New Orleans. Now please pronounce this correctly.

Nu-Or-Lins. I have been practicing all week. I now sound like a local.

Chat soon

Forgive me, I’m turning into my mum 😍

Hi… I’m bewildered, befuddled, confused, confuddled. Yes a new word, a new word to explain and understand my prickly pickle

Lovely lady, J Blaide over a week ago you nominated me for the sunshine blogger award.

I was blown away, tickled pink, over the moon. Yes delightfully delighted. I set about my response in my mind. Life is crazy busy for me right now.

I moved that weekend, so it was a few days before I actually put pen to paper, or more to the point, finger to iPad.

I wrote, I answered my questions, I banged out 11 more question for my new nominations. I was on a roll.

All good. What’s the problem? Me. I’m the problem.

Firstly I think it is fairly obvious I’m new to WordPress. So my puzzlement begins. “Oh dear” I do not know many people on WordPress. 🤪 This is going to be a tad harder than first thought. That’s okay, that’s okay, I’ve got this!

Secondly a few days of spasmodic speed reading of blogs from people I do not know. How did I find these people? I searched a word and browsed what came up.

Okay I’m taking you back a few steps now. One of J Blaides questions in the sunshine blog nominations was,” do you view or read”. My answer was I view and look for a hook to grab me and then I devour.

JBlaide for the record I devoured your site. Awesome, love, funny, entertaining and fabulous. Congratulations wonderful lady. Very clever, you are. ❤️

Forward a few steps again, back to my spasmodic readings of unknown bloggers. Between my crazy week with work and planning a 3 week holiday, I read, searched, I loved.

All good, “ again, what’s her problem you ask”. Well if you can imagine my screwed up crying face. 😩😝😫😖

I can’t bloody workout how to put my nominated names into my blog.

Seriously I have been trying since last Friday. I can get the full site address name in, on checking other nominees, they only have the name. Grrrr. What am I doing wrong? I research. I learn about the LINK. Fabulous I’m on it. NUP.

I did get one up, yippee. However, on making my second link it replaced the first link. What the? 🤪 NO. NO. NO. NO. I had to walk away.

Now I will tell you the funniest part. You won’t believe me. No you won’t!

Do you know what I did when I left school? Computer science. Yes! I was in IT for many years. Are you laughing? I am. 😂😂😂😂

I pride myself on being very computer literate. So what has happened to me? Sadly, I may know this answer, I’m turning into my mum.. yep laughing again. 🤣

So please excuse my ignorance JBlaide. I so wanted to respond and be part of my new little WordPress world. If everyone, my fellow computer literate bloggers, can please bear with me, I will improve with practice or maybe after a few lessons. Perhaps from my kids. Hmmmm. It’s official, I have become my Mum. Asking my kids to help me. Hahha. I love it. Luckily she is one of the most adored and admirable people I have ever met, even if she can’t use a computer. I may possibly be quiet for a few weeks. Ask me why? I’m off on an adventure. 3 weeks of fun, sunshine& travel. I truly doubt I’ll get much time to write while I’m away but I will have plenty to write on my return. However, I will be reading all your blogs as my bedtime reading. I look forward to it.

Love and thanks

Xoxo
