New bed and new me

We have now been sleeping on our bed for almost a week and my back is almost, almost not sore..there is still a slight twinge but it is nothing compared to what it used to be.  It took about 3 days for the pain to finally stop – after the first night there was a noticeable difference. So I am feeling so much better!!  My biggest issue with the bed is how high from the ground we are sleeping, at a guess it is almost triple the height of our old bed and I have to almost climb into it every night….I love it…except for nights like last night where hubby kept snuggling closer to me and at some point I was about to fall out….it’s a big drop…So comfy though…omg so comfy…new bed is super…love it – it’s probably my best buy of 2011….

finally have time

 So, I finally have time to sit and update my blog, it has been a while and I probably won’t really say all that much, however I am so thankful I am finally in a house that has settles.  That was one of those horrible horrible things that I never ever want to have to deal with again 😀

Our commodore has finally karked it – it needs a service awfully badly, but with the house we just didn’t get it done, funny then how on the same DAY that we picked up our second car, it decides it can’t hack it anymore, thank you gods!  So I am booking it in for a service next weekend and my baby will be fixed!

My birthday has been and gone and I missed my usual birthday post, it just didn’t feel like the time to do so with so much going on.

D went to canberra for a Samhain ritual and was delayed getting home, so I spent my birthday alone on the computers and pottering around the house, and you know, it was a fucking awesome day.  I enjoyed every minute of it.

I was unable to get up to Sydney for my friends memorial, however my thoughts were with the guys who did attend and my wishes were sent to the Aether.

I have, since we moved in, been almost OCD about keeping the house clean, there is something to be said for having a home you love and are proud of, I just want to keep it looking nice.  I do have to buy a clothes drier at some point as we have so many frosts out here I am not sure getting clothes dry s going to work too well.  But I feel like I have been constantly cleaning, and I know that is because we have been home for 3 weeks straight so we do make mess, ie breakfast, lunch and dinner…then people dropping past etc…so it has been constantly cleaning I guess.  

I am adamant we are going to stay on top of the clothes washing as well, even so much as to do loads midweek if we have enough.

All in all, everything has been going well.  D and I are dreading going back to work, although he may have scored a new job, fingers crossed he finds out tomorrow, and I only have to hold on until mid August before I can seriously start looking for work to get out of my cuirrent job, I hate my company, hate is not even strong enough to describe the loathing all consuming anger I have with the people I work with…It is very hard to explain, but I nee to just stay calm for 4 months. 9 I am going to try my hardest on that front!)

My Dad and stepmum are coming up next weekend for lunch to the new house, so that is a little exciting, I get to cook for them for a change, it will be nice 😀

I have started another blog – a la Minxee – and it is all about food 🙂 Well my food to be exact, recipes I like, want to try and things I have baked etc….bakefest.wordpress.com  if you are interested people 😀  It’s not very exciting at the moment, as I have not really had a chance to do much yet with all the house stuff going on, but I expect it to be updated fairly regularly with new recipes etc.

Anway I have to be on a train at 5.18am, so I am going to log off and do my nightly things!  I will chat to you all later!

Holidays

I am on holidays from work now 🙂 YAY!

I wish they would never end, but as they all good things must come to an end….god that’s a depressing though….anyway…enough of that…

MIdsummer ritual this weekend, I am looking forward to catching up with the people from last weekend, hopefully will be a blast again! Reminder need to stick the camping chairs and braziers in the car so we have some fire and seating!!

We have to go midsummer shopping on saturday morning and we are going to check out a paper store in the city…

I have walked past it hundreds of times and never been in there….and I really want to 😀 So tomorrow we are going!! I am a little excited! I would like to buy a couple of leather bound parchment filled books for different purposes 😀

I was worried about our money situation this week and guess what – shares dividends got paid! YAY! Have money now am happy! AHHHA Thank you for the timing!

Anyway more cleaning to be done, chat later!

LOL forget my weekend

so in my last 5 page post, I forgot to talk about one of the best weekends I have had in a while.

We had a dinner party thing with some friends on saturday afternoon, and i got angry that I had one pair of shoes that were not comfortable…so D, the legend that he is, took me to DFO and I got a new pair of cherry 8up docs 😀 Am soooo happy!! YAY!

We then drove to our friends place, met some great people, and had a really good nght, eating, drinking and laughing 🙂 Didnt get home until about 1am..long drive home…was soo painful 😀 We met some of wiccan cousins from Canberra and compared stories, methods and ritual behaviours etc, which was a eye opener for how relaxed our line is compared to theirs.

Sunday we went to Ballarat, and instead of coming home at about 5/6pm, we ended up home at like 12pm. We had the best night, I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time. Even today whilst on the train home tongiht, I was having to stop myself fro laughing at things that were said last night. I think our conversation went from Porn, to mens urinals, to scones, to freemasonry and vegetarians….it was so random and so much fun 😀

Anyway I am goign to shut up on LJ for a while : Dahhahaah

Questions about everything

I have lost a wek somewhere and I am no sure where, however i looked at the calender and realised that my lovely minxee was now turning older and having her nudie shoot 🙂 (Just read the post about that and REOW!!! I wanna see pics!! well the ones where you are covered please!! hehe )

I wish I was in Sydney so much when my friends have birthdays and I cna’t just drop round, catch up and give them a hug 🙂 So in typical belated mellie style…have a hug and a kiss on me Minxee…I love you sweety!

On the note of minxee her enthusiam for kick boxing has made me want that as well, so I am looking into belly dancing again, seriously, I want to find place as I know I will have the sense of enthusiam she has.

Onto enthusiasm, I have found a religious path that seems to pull at me, i feel such a connection with that, that I can’t stop thinking about it and so much that I am wanting to change my entire lifestyle to suit it. I have been reading about Druidry and confess I always thought it was a bit…vague…hrmm not the right word….but anyway, after reading some information and forums etc, I am having to admit that I am completely drawn in. So many things in the information are what I do now without thinking, that I feel it is a path I was destined to find….how cliqued!!! LOL

Which then leads onto the urge to sell up our home and make a new one on a couple of acres outside of melbourne. We have discussed doing it before, but with the above pulling on me and D being really supportive and wanting to move out as well, we seem to feel the time is now. I even went so far as to contact a real estate agent and he has advised properties in our neighbouring streets have been selling for almost 550k for a smaller block to developers. So considering our block is much larger potentially we could get more. I have to admit the money sounds nice, but the idea that we would be able to sell fairly easily to a developer is what is more appealing. He is coming around on Monday to have a look at our property and tell us what he thinks.

I have to tell you not, if we got that, or more, for our place, we would be basically be set up for the future and that would be put me in a great frame of mind, as we woudl not be struglgling financially, emotionally we would be not worried about money and letting that interfere with our relationship, we would feel more relaxed about our home life and happier not being in the city being bombarded with so much psychic energies etc. I would be able to have a vegetable patch, and a garden, I would be able to have a grove that is planted by me, D and I, or one at a time could go to Uni and get some sort of qualification, I could potentialy have a baby etc….All if we decide to sell and get a decent price for the place….it is very tempting 😀
