I’m in a fiX about how to add “X” to my family theme..
So l looked online and l found the word Ox, and wondered which child that could relate to? Strong as an Ox could relate to my Star Son!
But is that labelling him and putting him into a Box
As sly as a Fox could relate to Kit, there have been days when we’ve suspected but never could prove!
Mr Fix it has been attached to my Bloke more times than l can recall, lm always running to him to Fix something for me usually my eXcel spread sheet which records the number of pages l read each year!
Mix could also relate to stir and Star Son is what in Australia we fondly call a “Shit stirrer” when he stirs up people to get a response whether for good or evil!
“Have you got Wax in your ears?!” Is a common phrase around here because they’re all so busy doing other stuff they either tune out or plainly ignore me and when l have to repeat myself more than once l’ll often ask them to “clean the wax from their ears!” It’s a skill which lm rather good at to be surrounded by a houseful of people and be able to tune out and do your own thing!
Another phrase we like is “I have an Axe to grind” (To have a grievance with someone, especially where one feels the need to seek damaging retribution.) meaning it’s going to hurt to hear it but it’s time you know!
Six comes after five but l was happy to stop with five children even though it’s an odd number, l didn’t want to push my mental health limitations.
I have been known to Flex my muscles occasionally l try not to be the nagging over baring Mother but sometimes you just have to!!
Texas is a place l’ve always wanted to go, one day post Covid l’ll get there. Next to Texas is Louisiana and that has been on my hit list for a long time too!
I started an Exercise program at the stat of the year. I am the laziest person l know, but in order to live a long healthy life and keep up with my Grandchildren l made some decisions to look after me first for a while. So January l started an Exercise program for women over 50 and l was really enjoying it l got myself into a little routine and was going great guns until our instructor asked us to add light weights. As soon as l started l thought to myself “this might not be a good idea” but l pushed ahead and hurt myself! My back was strained for weeks! Lesson to myself “listen to that little internal voice”
Another thing we love to do is Explore, since we can’t go overseas we travel locally, and last week we had the car in for some front end work age got a snorkel and a two inch lift and a bull at all things to help us go off road and explore even more, but we had no vehicle and so we went on public transport and explored the city of Melbourne!
I think that’s enough “X” words!! Phew and this blog is done!!
