One more sleep and then you can sleep in, or drink, or party, or veg and do nothing!
Sorry to everyone that works the weekends. Sometimes that’s me…but not this weekend!

Hello my fellow bloggers,
Long time no hear from me, right? I am so hopeless at keeping up with blogging these days, sorry!
I saw this on facebook and it made me smile so much that I had to share it.
Where does all that energy come from?? Lol
Hugs to all of you. Paula xxxxx
Hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, just like these 2 fury friends. 🙂

What a beautiful world and planet we live in.
Have a great week from Down Under! Hugs Paula xx
Long time no see or hear, right? 🙂 Thought I would let you know that I’m still around.
Will get back to posting something real soon. Love to you all, hugs Paula xxxx
Gosh it’s been so long since I posted that I feel I’m hijacking someone elses blog again. 🙂
I actually find it hard to write when I take these big gaps off blogging. There’s been so many days when I’ve thought, “I might write something today” before I knew it, the day was over and I had written nothing!
Okay where should i start writing from? Hmm, lets go back to Christmas time.
I had a great day with my family and my partner; actually, this year is the first Christmas my partner and I have spent together. You see, he lives in one state and I live in another, so having Christmas together was really nice. He fly’s over to me quite a bit, and I fly with him when I can. He has a job that flies him all around the country and therefore he’s never really in one place for very long.
Can you believe it, he nearly didn’t make it for Christmas as he fell off a ladder only days away from Christmas day! I didn’t think he would come but knowing how disappointed I would be, he flew over. Now that’s pretty good considering he was in hospital over night and could barely walk. His ribs were all bruised and he was really sore, he’s lucky nothing more serious happened to him.
Good news for me is that in the coming weeks he’s moving in with me, we have been together for 17 months now and we feel that we now want to commit to the next level. Oh BTW: I don’t mean marriage! I’m afraid marriage is not for me. Been there done that and I’m not ready to even think along those lines. I left my Ex for all sorts of reasons and one was not trusting him.
Anyway I’ll go back to a happier part of my life and that’s moving in with someone my own age and who I truly love.
I believe we now live in a modern society and I don’t think you need a certificate to prove you love someone. I was once really old fashioned and thought you should marry and you should take the husbands name. Well, not anymore. I have 2 friends that have married and kept their maiden names. I have always thought this was wrong and why bother getting married if you DON’T take their name? But I now know I was wrong again! They love their husbands just as much as those that take their husbands names, so I suppose what’s the difference?
So many people chose to just live together these days that I don’t think it really matters. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not Condoning the Sanctity of Marriage…Not at all! I just think times are changing and we don’t have to be so set in our ways.
People are more open now and not as judgmental…Which I think this is a good thing! Gosh in the old days you would have been shunned for such a thing. It was a pretty cold and cruel world, especially for woman.
All I can say is thank god for the 21st Century!
In saying that I believe we all need to take the path that best suits us and our own individual needs. Because at the end of the day Loving someone and someone loving you is not as easy as it sounds, and especially finding someone you trust! So when and if you are lucky enough to find it again, I think you should hang onto it in any way you can.
So, how do you feel about about people living together, NOT marrying, or marrying and NOT taking their husbands names? Or worse, being with someone younger than your own children. It will be interesting to see how you feel and be completely and utterly honest, I hold no grudges!! Well, So I say!! Lol
Much love to you and Happy Belated New Year to you all!
Hugs Paula xxxx

Hugs, Paula xx
I’ve taken some time away from blogging as I have been preoccupied with moving into my knew house. Yay!!!
It’s nearly 2 years old and quite modern, I love it! It’s a breath of fresh air and is so white and clean!
Then, my son needed me to babysit his boys for a week, and boy is that tiring; they are 4 and 8 and even though they aren’t exactly babies, it’s still really tiring when you’re not used to it! I suppose with my sons being 22 and 30 my life isn’t really about them anymore and I’ve become probably selfish in what I want my free time to be. I would go to the moon and back for my sons but as they are now no longer at home, my time is spent around what I want to do. So, when little kids get thrown into that mix I’m not used to it! Lol
I’ve also been to Bali with 2 of my closest friends and had such a great time, a well needed rest!
We shopped, ate and drank, then we shopped, ate, and drank some more; this continued every single day we were there and I absolutely loved it! Bali is incredibly relaxing and that’s what I am sure a lot of people go for, a weekend getaway in a tropical paradise.
We would go down to the beach in the afternoons and have a drink whilst our feet were buried in the sand, just watching the sun going down. Ahhhh, a slice of heaven! If only life was always that simple, right? 🙂
Bali from Western Australia is very cheap, believe it or not it’s cheaper than going to Sydney! If you haven’t been and ever get the chance, then take it. It’s one of those places where you can just walk the streets in your shorts and t-shirt and won’t look out of place. The only drawback is if you don’t enjoy bartering, because then the shopping will get a little on your nerves. You should NEVER let them know it’s your first time in Bali, Why? Because they will realise you don’t know what things really cost. To the Balinese these goods are worth mere cents due to the mass production of imitation brands from the Island’s factories or from Mainland China, but a lot of newcomers to Bali don’t understand this and will happily pay $20 for a T-shirt that would cost $30 back home, but most regulars will pay $5. Most things like shirts/dresses/shorts/t-shirts cost roughly $5 and $10. Super cheap and beautiful sarongs for $3-$5.
This week I have my brothers 3 children as he’s going away with my sister in law on a conference, his children are 7, 12 and 15 and they’re so much easier to look after than small children!
Then in November when all my babysitting duties are all over, I start a massage course (Therapeutic) for 7 weeks full-time which I’m really looking forward to. I just have to remember all the muscles in the body and how to pronounce some of them! Hahaha. The course costs $5, 500 which is way more than I thought it would. The Remedial costs $10,500 so that’s why I opted for the therapeutic but with this certificate you can still work from home and that’s all that really mattered to me.
I decided I needed to find something that I would enjoy doing as much as I loved renovating homes for all those years. This way I’m also my own boss and can travel or do as much work as I do or don’t won’t to do! Having Bipolar is tricky and there is some days that life is just too hard to understand, and therefore you are pretty much no good to anyone until you can get back on track. Plus I love being around people and making them happy and I think massage can do that. I haven’t met many people they hated being massaged, now if you feel like that, then tell me and hopefully I can learn what NOT to do to someone! Any help or tips would be great. 🙂 All feedback welcomed!
Actually even though I have BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder) I don’t tick all the boxes relevant to BPD. Luckily for me I adore people and don’t self harm. So I think I’ve picked the right job for now.
I really miss blogging but I just couldn’t get my head around it with everything that’s been going on in my life.
I hope all of you are well and life is treating you kindly.
Hugs to you all,
