It’s the 29th of December, four days after the craziness of Christmas celebrations! & Boxing Day – I didn’t go do the mad sales hunting out there, fuck that! In fact, I haven’t left the house all day. After being struck with a food coma due to over-eating, not like a bossbitch, but instead – like a true pig. Ha! I had no regrets at the time…but my tummy suggests otherwise now and is out for revenge!
Putting that aside, as we slowly start winding right down & begin thinking about the new year coming quicker than we realise, I was sitting here just pondering about “yaknow, stuff” & out of nowhere, I’m like, “I’m going to write a Dear 2016 letter & put it inside, Put-it-in-my-hole” haha that sounds a bit naughty, but I promise it’s not! And then as I started typing, I decided, - “ohh, I’ll probably turn it into a blog post as well” ..”I am going to turn this into a post!” I can’t help myself, okay!
Wait! …let me explain what “Put-it-in-my-hole” is first! SO. Back in 2013 I wanted to make a time capsule type of thing since it was our first house and I just wanted to create memories with loved ones & friends etc. I ended up with an empty protein powder container, diy’d it a little, made a hole for whatever was going to be getting put inside the capsule & that’s where we got the name from! This bad boy hasn’t been opened for 3yrs (only because no one can get the lid off due to my “bright” idea to glue it), and I don’t intend on opening it until we move into our own home!
So, that’s that!
Yes, I wrote resolutions at the end of 2015 for the new year of 2016 – FAILED though, Haha! & tbh, I don’t even remember the list haha! I definitely know that weight-loss was on it (weight loss is always on the fucking reso. list) but if anything, I’ve probably gained haha dammit! But the rest…. is left forgotten lol
I couldn’t wait to leave 2015, that was a hunk of shit year for me! I had to endure a few things that caught me off guard! Definitely a learning curb. & tbh, it definitely left me scarred going into this year.
However, this year has been the year of the “celebrity death plague” – a fuckload of my childhood celebs left us. As well as another year filled with bloodshed due to maliciousness, hatred and all kinds of fucking evil, awful shit around our world!
OH! & how could I forget, it’s also been the year for all kinds of deadly illnesses breaking out – along with SO MUCH political drama, that I, tbh, couldn’t be bothered keeping up with. IMO; 5yr old children should run the world! At least it would consist of imagination, rainbows, butterflies, candy floss and copious amounts of lollies & playgrounds! Ohhhh the innocence of it all.
We can’t forget the natural disasters that struck our countries in one way or another either. & With all of that said, I believe this year truly has been about, “The Survival of 2016”.
Can we touch on me now? I think we should, ha!
It’s been the year of – Me, dealing with an open door to heartache & heartbreak.
It’s been the year of – Me, having to accept possibilities of my relationship ending.
It’s been the year of – Me, fighting piss infection after infection after infection!
It’s been the year of – Wifey and I finding each other again?
It’s been the year of – emotions; growth, stress, depression, body-image/self-loathing, anxiety, happiness… you name it, I’m ya girl, I had em’ all!
It’s been the year of – being able to bank over $10, 000 dollars into our savings account.
It’s been the year of – deciding who’s worth keeping friendships with or not.
It’s been the year of – Me, collecting every MUO beauty box I could get my little mitts on!
It’s been the year of – Wifey starting up a new & exciting business!
It’s been the year of – travelling to National Park (both sides). SO fucking magical there!!
It’s been the year of – changing Doctors’ & actually getting shit sorted!
It’s been the year of – POKEMON GO… but that novelty wore off for me quick, smart BUT I can still say, I was part of the movement!
It’s been the year of – van problems and reviews and having to prove that I need this or that. THANK FUCK, I have amazing people on my side, to help with the processes!
It’s been the year of – Wifey banning me from doing our grocery shopping haha
It’s been the year of – NO FUCKING FLU! Woohoooo ^,^
It’s been the year of – living with a Wintec student who happens to be my sister.
It’s been the year of – One of my best friends leaving a life in Wellington & moving to Hamilton to start a new life… unfortunately, I also punched her in the face, oops! sorry booo!
It’s been the year of – ATTSS being born!!
It’s definitely been the year of trials and tribulations for me and mine. It wasn’t all a shitfest. Especially now that I’ve typed it all down and I can see that, this year, has actually been OKAY. & I’m OK with that.
How boring would things be without the trials, challenges & shitfests!? Wifey has taught me though; - there is always a silver lining for everything, if not everything then most things. & I feel like she’s right! & I’m pretty sure, we can all genuinely agree that, even in our crappiest 2016 moments, we have all learnt whatever life lessons were needed in those times and managed to find that silver lining that’s been spoken of.
I believe, I found mine & I am fucking coming out on top at the end of this year and I am ready to tackle 2017, grab it by the balls & show it who its’ daddy gon’ be! Ha ha!
Say goodbye to this year but take with you, all that you’ve learnt. -WATCH THIS BLOG LIFE IN 2017 SHINEEEEE GIRL!!!
Stay happy, Keep smiling! XX
Did the fat man in the red suit bring you any goodies this year? Fur babies, Wifey and I were spoilt, not only in gifts but with awesome company from our family and friends! (I'll do a present haul at some stage, just not today because a food coma moidered me)
Our day was fucking hectic and crazy from start to finish! But in every good kind of way! We started at 5am…YUP! I shit you not. Ha ha! it’s the perks of a tetraplegics’ life. And it just so happened to be my toilet/shower day on one of our busiest days of the cunting year – so this is Christmas (as I typed that, I could hear the song being sung in my head by the man who sings it ha ha), there’s something wrong with me, I swear.
As I’ve said in the previous posts this month, our tradition is homemade b&e mcmuffins cooked on the BBQ for breakfast. This year was no different. Followed by an epic BBQ lunch shared with family – this year, was with wifey’s family. Quick visit from one of our fav. families. Then topping it off with another epic BBQ dinner, spent with our two good friends.
Such a beautiful, awesome, hectic, crazy, fun, day all round!
Today, it is Boxing Day here in New Zealand – which means, SALES, SALES, SALES! I’m sorry but I am well & truly stuffed! BIGGEST food coma in the world! I’m in chill-mode ALL day. Boxing Day sales are just not worth being stuck in lines as long as the Great wall of China or trying to make my way through sardine nation, JUST to get to the sales that will probably be sold out by the time I reached them.
HOME, FUR BABES, MY LOVE = My perfect boxing day!
Stay happy, Keep smiling! X
Was I ever ready?? Why do I fuck around every year?! So many why’s and not enough time, because – why would time wait for me? Christmas is literally DAYS away! Arrgghhhhhh! I may have just stopped for a moment and ripped out my hair due to stress…
And my Mum has just left (8am, Thursday) a few days early so that she could be home in Tolaga Bay with the rest of the family for Christmas. I’ve been asked so many times if I’m going to be there too – my reply; oh fuck no!, maybe I didn’t need to be so blunt with it huh? Hmm yeahNah’ I did. #sorrynotsorry
Wifey’s still asleep, along with our son Jirugi and probably the 7 thousand cats we don’t own because we only have three. And I’m out in the lounge typing up a storm in hopes that, getting my “feelings” or “thoughts” out will take my mind off the xmas stress ha ha. not a fucking chance though! OH & I’m trying to keep my eyes open because I must’ve subconsciously thought that 5am waking up was a fantastic idea to go through with. But the sun is shinning bright, sky is blue and everyone I love, are alive and happy so I guess I have lots of blessings and should just shut the fuck up and be jolly about life atm, right?! It is the xmas, festive season after all.
I think I need to re-look at & re-evaluate my resolutions for the new year because the shit I put on my 2016 one involving Christmas is so not what it has resulted in, and that disturbs me. Maybe I just shouldn’t have resolutions? Mine seem to fail, year after year and that doesn’t just disturb me; - it pisses me off, like, SO much! All I know is, something needs to be done or changed!
Presents were meant to be gathered throughout the year – FAIL. I’m stupid for even putting this on my resolutions list because every fucking time I end up last minute gift shopping. & sure enough, this year was no different. I actually did 95% of our xmas gift shopping last night – Yeeeeep! I am fucking INSANE doing it 3 – 4 days before C-day! Safe to say my eyebrows had gone from independent individuals to connected and mom-browing… for a couple of reasons ha..ha! I wont mention the reasons… *cough cough* wifey *cough* and *cough* asshole people *cough*… there’s a lot of coughing going on lol
Presents were purchased – YAAAY! But like I said, only 95% booooo! So there could be more hair-ripping and mono-browing later on during the day. Don’t forget I’m tired as fuck, so it should be interesting ha ha. I think I’m scared, I hope the wifey is prepped for this shit – for my shit. . .
OH. & don’t even get me started on the food side of things ha ha. Wifey has banned me from grocery shopping because apparently, I over spend?? …alright, so that isn’t a lie. The most input I’m allowed to give now, is the list. & I’m okay with that. You guys all know about me and my obsession for list – making!
This Christmas is definitely going to be a “winging – it” type of xmas for us. Apart from breakfast! We’ve got that badboy sorted as it is our little family tradition (you’d already know this if you’ve read one of my previous Christmassy posts)
Winging it should be fun though… interesting, but fun hehe! So here’s to a very Merry (fingers are crossed in my mind, with hope that all will be okay’ish…) Christmas and a fucking Happy New Year for all! & just remember, it’s not about gifts or the amounts or the tree or the best this or that… it’s about family, friends, loved ones and the time spent together.
Enjoy or at least be really fucking good at pretending to enjoy it (wine may help you here), so you don’t ruin it for everyone else (maybe wine isn’t the best choice as it may unleash the truth & your inner-assholingness), if that’s the case – stay home girrrl ha ha!
Stay safe, Keep happy boo <3 xxx
I had my blog post for today sorted and ready to go but noooo! That all went down the shitter and turned to custard, fast!, leaving me in poo poo! I was ready to spit bricks at every bitch and not put a post up at due time. BUT! I didn't want to do that :/
So, I thought; Fuck it! and I decided to keep this post nice & simple because the internet is on a whole other level lately. Well, when I say internet I actually mean - Facebook.OH! & it needs a cellphone & a middle button? ...you'll see whay I mean!
That shit has me doing things I usually just scroll down and roll my eyes at and think “fucking annoying shit!” So, I’ve surprised myself by not doing that!? Must be the “festive” season or something? I don’t know, but I did them for the “lols” anyway!
...I couldn't help but wonder if anyone received my Christmas list??
OH?!... I guess my list wasn't received?? I'm curious to know about "ME and my wife" though! Did I miss something about us?
Even Santa knows about the middle button!
Well... fuck you Santa! a sack full of goodies and I get this shit?!
Aaron is a friend... this should be a goody! :)
...another fail, I don't think I'm liking this middle button shananigans!
AND I think it's safe to say; - In the future, I shall keep scrolling down!!! Middle button issues seem to be bloody real??!!
Stay happy, Keep smiling XX
During a full-on week with having the cutest little human for 7 days’ straight, and her keeping us big people on our toes the whole time, as well as doing the usual weekly shit we do! I came home one day last week to a fucking awesome surprise!!!… ..
Do you remember a few blogs back, I wrote about the exclusive MUO BEAUTY BOXES??? Well incase you’ve forgotten or you haven’t read it… click below!
I have been SUUHHHH excited about this current beauty box!!! It was pre-ordered back in November, pretty much straight after the last beauty box. BUT – it had to be earned, if you wanted a guaranteed spot for one!
As I probably said in my other beauty box blog post, we must give reviews whether it is reviewing the packaging, experience with the whole process of it all or the products – the more, the better it is for any chance of future boxes!
This particular box had to be earned in order to have a secured spot for pre-orders AND there were only FIFTEEN places otherwise, it was race-for-a-place on the given date and time…only thing with that is, there are a few hundred or more, other makeupobsessives that’ll be ready & waiting for their clocks to strike the given time!! You need to be fucking quick! The hype is REAL, mate!
However, I was very fortunate and made the fifteen. THANK FUCK!!! But I didn’t get it handed to me on a silver platter, trust me! Plus, I don’t expect it to be either!
Kirsty (zee’ QUEEN of MUO & the reason we are spoiled!!!) set a little mission for us’ hungry box lovers.
MISSION: XMAS BEAUTY BOX, SECURE A SPOT OR GO RACE-FOR-A-SPACE
IT..STRESSED..ME..OUT ha ha!!! I got all confused, I’m not one to take in information or instructions like, 100% …I’m sorry, it’s just the way I am lol. & then, Jirugi (our puppy) wouldn’t co-operate for the photo’s I had envisioned bringing to life haha FML! So, he added to my stress. Oh yes, it was all fun and fucking games, I tell ya!
Got my shit together & managed to complete the mission! Woooo! For a moment, I thought I’d be aborting the mish. (stress makes me shut down & crawl under a rock, although I haven’t found a rock that caters for myself AND my wheelchair… yet!)
My mission completed photo with the required three brand products. Isn’t that little guy cute as fuck though?! Even though he didn’t co-operate, he still did me proud, ha! & I mean, I must’ve done something right, cos’ I still made it through! Yaaay!
The Christmas boxes ended up being $80, rather than $70 - $75, BUT – worth EVERY freaking dollar!! Pffttt. Fuck the price, even if it was $100, I would’ve paid up! Plus I have terrible FOMO (fear of missing out ha ha).
The products are incredible and the whole box is worth a fuckload more than $80, try at least a few hundred, I shit you not!
As I’ve said, for, what feels like 1 billion times now! These badboys went on pre-sale back in November. And the process of it all was no different to every other previous box (process is in an earlier blog post – go check it out). The waiting game felt like FOREVER though arrrggghhhh!!!
This box is hands down THE BEST ONE yet! But I think I’ve said that about all of them ha ha! I can’t help it, they’re all fucking amazing! & it absolutely leaves me gobsmacked every time I receive a new one, because they just get better and better.
I bet you all wana see what’s inside huh?! The suspense killed me, is it killing you?? The smells that came from my box (ha ha excuse the pun! Bloody rude ^,^) made my nose tingle because it smelt sooo deeelisshhh!!!
SOOO many “omg’s, OMFGGGGGG’s” when I opened the treasure box! It was a beautiful sight. I was fucking exciteddddd!!!!
Shimmers, shiny, sparkles, smellies, cleaners, colourful, bright, soothing, *new* things… – An abundance of all kinds of wonderfuls!
How lucky am I? How lucky are we?! Kirsty & the Admin girls are fucking beyond awesome, crazy beautiful, amazing!!! They seriously don’t get enough credit (plus they don’t expect any credit!), I just hope – copious amounts of wine was downed during any of the process ;) ;), they deserve it!!!
There’s not enough THANK YOU’s in the whole widest world for you all – soooo much appreciation for all that yous’ do for us!
Christmas came early for me this year! Does this mean I can be naughty now? Cos’ I don’t care if I get a lump of coal, I’ve already got what I wanted & need, ha!
MERRY EARLY XMAS MY FELLOW MUO’s!
Be good, Be naughty or be good at being naughty <3
Stay happy, Keep smiling xxx
