Diary – The Versatile Blogger Award

Two fellow bloggers – Annarosemeeds and Snababo, have awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.

I find this an extraordinary gesture, and I wish to thank both of them greatly for the honour of thinking of me.  On both occasions, I got a little teary *shy smile*

From what I can gather, the Versatile Blogger Award is a chain letter type award.  Once someone has tagged you, you “win” and then you tag others.  And in the meantime, you have to tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself that they may not previously know.  Well, I’m hardly shy online, so here are my seven things right here! *grin*

*  One of my stims is picking at my skin around my toes.  It’s really embarrassing, so I thought I would get that one out of the way straight up.

*  I have danced on a bar Coyote Ugly style.  In Tokyo.

*  The first time I saw snow was in South Korea – I woke up, went for a walk, and wondered what that white shit was around the trunks of the trees.

*  The second time I saw snow was in Japan – I went to the toilet with the door open (and the kitchen window open) and could see the neighbours roof.  It was usually a dark colour, but on this morning, it was white.  It took me a minute to figure out it was snow, and I immediately rang Australia (wildly pulling my pants up while reaching for the phone) to call BJ and let him know it had snowed!!!

*  I am really very shy in real life.  Not that I am shy per se, but I am scared of saying the wrong thing, or saying the right thing in the wrong way, and so I usually just don’t speak at all.

*  I am a full-blown lesbian, even though I have a husband.  That has never been a secret but some of you may not know yet.

*  I am an Agnostic Wiccan.  That is to say, that while I don’t believe there is a Moon Goddess, I do believe in following the teachings of Wicca, and find tools such as Tarot Cards and Runes useful in figuring out what is bothering me (even if I don’t believe they can tell me the future etc etc).  I LOVE crystals and find them energising – not because I believe they contain power per se, but because I believe I give them power myself.  I do believe in an universal energy however, and I do believe that there is much we do not know nor could possibly comprehend when it comes to the ways of the universe.

So there are my seven things.  And while I am also supposed to “tag” 15 other bloggers for an award, I do not actively follow that many.  I try to, but I simply don’t have the time.  So here are my favourites (plus of course – the two people above who nominated me 🙂 )…

Little Bird Little Bee

Actually, this is the only one I read no matter what.  I’m sorry to all the others – I really am.  I try to read what I can, but there are just so many kind souls out there, and I have a hard enough time keeping up with Facebook.  I have lost myself completely with Twitter (which is very sad as now I have only crap news on television to keep me informed on what is going on in the world).  But Melissa here, saved my life.  Plus she is awesome.  She gets special treatment.  I hope you all understand.

Maxie 😺 sleeping on my stomach... Which she has been doing non stop for two months now!!! Cats know shit!!! 😳😻 So, I’ve been unusually quiet lately... Needed to talk to family first... I have grown a granuloma thing near my belly button, that’s also causing a dent in my stomach, and despite testing, doc doesn’t know why. One thing led to another, and now I’ve ended up in the “testing for cancer” stage. Stomach has been ruled out. I need the hospital to stop losing my referrals so I can find out about bowel. Something is definitely wrong, obviously things are more complicated than one can write about on social media, but hopefully it’s just one of those pain in the arse things (😂) that isn’t actually fatal. All of this had a little bit to do with our “LET’S GO ON A FUCKING CRUISE - OR TWO!!!” bent 😂 So if you’re wondering about that, this is one reason why we have decided this trip is so important. And no, we are not paying for all of it from our measly pension. Nor are we doing anything illegal, or starving our children. Apparently, people were wondering??? 😆 So that’s my latest. I’ve been quiet because I’ve been really fucking sick 🤢 and sleeping 😴 for 18 hours a day every chance I get. And I’ve prioritised a trip 🛳 (plus a dry run trip 🛳), that incorporates a lot of our family’s bucket list to do’s because we’ve been reminded life isn’t forever ❤️

Quinn made Gyoza 🥟 today for dinner!!! I taught E how to combine it all, and BJ cooked it, but Quinn and E made them! So proud of him. It’s a huge deal for him to sit that long. ❤️

    Enjoying a second date night - ever - with my husband. Every time we start necking, my watch goes off telling me my heart rate is too high 😂 (at Mooloolaba Beach) https://www.instagram.com/p/B0a7LI0BVh-/?igshid=2ujnf692eow3

    Quinn built her a luxury home, however it is being renovated. An additional room will be added by way of tunnel. In the meantime, apparently the tunnel parts make a great bed! 😂 #TypicalCat https://www.instagram.com/p/Bx1ClEaBUNu/?igshid=1eyw0in8tttua
