Getting the hang of this Blog Thing....

Well here I am back for No. 2 Blog! I had no idea how popular this type of thing was. And I guess I did this myself, but through emails to friends and the good old M Report emails that went out a few times during the year when I had some BIG NEWS to share!

And what I find really interesting is some of the comments/feedback that I have received over the years about my M Report emails. I haven’t kept any and my good friend Cassie once said to me, you know you should keep a copy of them and maybe one day make a book! Hehehe Imagine that… You see personally, to me, I don’t see what people SEE in my writing. I didn’t really enjoy it at school and mind you I can remember though the excitement of FINALLY receiving my “Pen License” in mmm maybe Grade 6 or 7, which meant that I no longer had to write in pencil! Ohhhh what a day when I finally had that little certificate in my hot little hands! J

As a lot of you know, I like to talk, andddddddddddddddd I like to tell a good story or two! My friend Chris once said, you know we should have a tent up (this was for a Famiy Day that we were putting on for one of my previous workplaces) and have Karen sitting there and people can pull a subject matter out of a hat and she can tell a story about it! As she has sooo many stories…. Hehehehe

So maybe this BLOG THING is kinda like me being a story teller! J

It’s Sunday night and I am wondering what this week will bring? Hopefully maybe some new houses to check out, maybe even a phone call about having an interview for my job, fingers crossed! It could even bring some phone calls about a couple of offers we have put on for houses…. Maybe they might come back and accept our offer! Or maybe not hehehe.

Ahhhh if only we had a crystal ball to see what was coming up in life! But then again I always say, if someone told you that this, this and thissssssssssss were going to happen to you in the next say 12 months you would go, NOOOOOOOOOO WAYYYYYYYYYYYY but its funny cause we are given things in life that somehow we just manage to deal with! Sometimes it stretches us other times we fly by it! And other times, we don’t even realise how well we have actually handled it!

It can sure suck at times being a Grown Up! J

Well, I am off to bed. I am going to wake up like a four year old tomorrow morning! Rise and shine with anticipation of a great week!

What a week....

First of all welcome to everyone, well those who have found us on here anyway.....

The last week has been very hectic to say the least! I have finally signed the contract to sell my unit and whilst I will miss it alot, it is time to move on.... Sometimes in life you just have the gut feeling that tells you it's time to move onto the next chapter in your life. It took me a couple of weeks to sign but I just knew that I the time was right!

For those of you that aren't aware Jake has decided not to move out and rent, but to buy a house with me. Something "Dual Living" so I don't have to witness his crap! LOL

So the last couple of weeks/weekends we both have been trawling the "For Sales" and trying to find somewhere! Not an easy thing to do right now as houses are being snapped up really fast! But I am a big believer that things happen for a reason, sooooooo it's just a case of persevering with it all. I said to Jake that very soon I will need plastic surgery and a WIG! Due to the stress... His reply: Mum, we don't have the $10,000 needed hehehe. What a funny boy he IS!

On other news, my job has been advertised on a 12 month contract and I have applied and applications close tomorrow. So fingers crossed that one pans out for me! To be honest I am just taking it one day at a time and haven't even let myself think any further into the future. Prob the only way to deal with that at the moment!

We had a huge Better Business Breakfast last Friday for work, with around 80 people attending. It started at 7am and I had to be there at 6.30am! Let's just say that by lunch time I had hit the wall and needed my pillow hehehe.

But when we have these for work, either breakfast's or lunches, I like to try and take just one thing away with me! This was the third event I have been to and I would like to leave you with the top 3 things this week, that I have tried to incorporate into my life that I have learnt from these events:
  1. "No" is negotiable
  2. If you had 6 months to live, are you leading the life you would want to....
  3. What would it be like if you had the energy of a four year old... almost every day? ie. Waking up every morning and having a positive thought about the day, being positive and not dreading and dragging yourself out of bed every morning! (this is prob the hardest thing to do.... )
Have a great week and thanks for reading The M Report!
