Accent: Well to me I don't have one, but on the phone I am mistaken for my Mum who has an English accent. When I was in the US everyone I met begged me to talk because they thought it was hilarious to hear an aussie accent and then my Dad is Scottish - so who knows????
Booze: Nope not very often - though if I was to it would be a glass of white wine or an exotic cocktail as long as it has watermelon in it.

Number of sexual partners: Let's not go there.
Overnight hospital stays: Way too many.
Phobias: Low heights, rodents, and being alone for the rest of my life.
Quote: "In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after truth" ~ Mahatma Gandhi
Religion: I have my own beliefs that I follow and I respect other peoples right to follow their own faiths.

Missing In Action
Not much happening in my life - it is very boring and predictable and needs to change, but I have no idea where to start. I am really finding it hard to go out and meet new people, I just have no idea how to go about it in a country town. I was asking a few people at work and they looked at me like I had grown horns so I don't know how things are going to work out here and how to overcome my shyness and get a boost in self confidence.....
I though that losing weight would help and so far have lost just over 30kgs (I have put a ticker thing at the bottom of this blog to keep track - more of a thing to keep me motivated) but that hasn't boosted my self confidence at all, just means I have to keep going out to buy new clothes :-)
I don't know, may be coming up here was not the best idea I have ever had.
Happy Birthday Dad 28/04/2006
You'll Always Be Loved Very Much.
Happy Birthday Deccy V 15/04/2006
I am so proud to be your Aunty Carolyn ~ I never knew you could love someone so much until you and your sister blessed me with your presence. Please know that I love you very much and respect you and will always be here for you while you are growing up and for always.
Happy 1st Birthday Deccy V!

I have noticed over the last month that I have become very tired and lethargic (thyroid is still borderline so not that) - could this be related to the Diabetes????
Should I consider just going back onto insulin now and getting back into a real routine of things before the honeymoon comes to an end or wait till I crash and burn again. May be that is what I am worrying about - crashing and burning - being in a country town where I still am not sure what would happen if something was to go wrong.
Would taking control of the Diabetes now give me some sort of ultimate control of how things would progress, etc. Or am I best leaving this alone and just waiting to see what happens????

All my teenage years I wanted to study Physiotherapy, but I knew that with my physical condition that would not be possible, so I looked into Pharmacy, but I suck at chemistry and I mean I really am dreadful at chemistry - I love the concepts and ideas behind chemistry, etc but I just can't get my head around it , so that became out of the question, until someone suggested Podiatry.
Everyone goes EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, but you have to understand I LOVE and ADORE feet and I had it all planned, my business name and I even had the sign design (though little Miss A chewed it but the concept is still there) and was going to introduce alternative practices as well such as reflexology, acupuncture, etc.......I got into University, but just missed the cut to get into Podiatry by 7.6 points so I went into a Bachelor of Life Science in human Biology and after a year I could transfer into Podiatry. I got the marks but at the interview they felt that I would not be able to do it physically I was absolutely devastated - how could they say that, they had no idea of my capabilities and how I can do anything I set my mind too do....anyway that was the end of Uni for me - if I couldn't do what I wanted to do then that was it for me....
Now in my working life it is coming to a stage where I need to go back and do a degree in something and I just can't make up my mind in what. I want it to be something to do with health as that is a passion of mine - I have thought along the lines of nutrition, occupational health and safety and mixing that up with a business degree (though that aspect would bore me to tears but would be advantageous) but the more I look the more possibilities I see then I look at how long it is going to take to actually complete it and is it really worth it....
SIGH it is a tough one.......to study or not to study and if so WHAT??????

Happy Birthday To Me
By the age of 30 I thought I would be happily married and have one child or have one on the way and would have my own successful podiatry practice. I am very single, definitely no children and not looking like ever having the opportunity to have them, never got to do my degree in podiatry - didn't even complete the degree I was doing.....
One of my friends from high school sent me this beautiful card and she said she had been thinking about what I thought I would of achieved by the age of 30 and she said I might not have achieved that, but you are an amazing friend with a beautiful personality and you have achieved so much just not in the way you had planned and that is ok......and you know what it is ok, but still....
My birthday didn't quite go to plan, was just my Dad and I in the end. My sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew flew down to Perth to get their house ready to put on the market and my mum got flown down at the beginning of last week for some medical tests and she has been kept in Perth for some further testing....I haven't met to many people up here yet I really do have to get over being so shy......and this cyclone weather has just about done me in I was in bed by 6.30am on Friday night just couldn't handle being in so much pain and just wanted to go hide under the covers.....on the diabetes side of things I found it quite interesting to note that when my pain levels rise my blood sugars rise even though I had nothing to eat and had only been drinking water they still rose......something to think about......
