Feeling Grateful

Hi there,
It's me again.

Trina... remember me?

I've been thinking,...why, why did I become a blogger?
It was about sharing my journey, the struggle I have about spelling!, having a tutor every Thursday for two years in my adult life, someone to teach me how to read & write.

I'm happy to report back and tell you, that I am very proud of myself actually, feeling quite chuffed at having the confidence now, not feeling so embarrassed, about making silly mistakes, this doesn't shame me out any more, like it use to.

My G+ family have become such an important part of my life now. I need to tell you all, I am so very grateful. My blog may have changed it's path a little, but the theory in the idea is still very much a progress to open myself up to you and help me over come my fear of failing.

 This page so far has taken me over two hours and is full of nothing, but simply highlighting the work I need to do, to just get this down into words you can read. So blogging was one way, every week, with a lovely, very patient lady, helping me do simple tasks that any kid finds easy and yes, I'm still learning the tasks and will always stay with me, bad habits are hard to break. But here I am, been brave in front of you all to see.

Keep smiling, things will work out in the end :)

Great night for a Swim

They say the weather is going to get rough in the next few days, rain ☔ and thunderstorms are scheduled early in the week, but it's looking great for now, so let's go enjoy the calm before the storm.
Autumn evenings are so peaceful.

People are out and about, soaking up the last bit of heat left in the day, before the sun goes down in my town.

Hope your evening is a restful one.

Let's Start the Day with a Smile

Wouldn't it be great to start our day this way, every day!, if only the weather would be this kind more often, I think I would climb this hill ...almost every day!, leaves' you feeling, what a fabulous start. As the sun is waking us up in such a peaceful way, it makes you have faith, nothing would go wrong.

When the skies are so calm and the water below moves softly across the shoreline, you can't help but feel lucky, lucky enough to simply sit, breath and smile. Life is what you make it, so go live it your way.

Rocks Can Be Fun Too

You know how I said, 'I'm so busy lately'.

I've find something really easy that's relaxing me, check it out...

Weekends can be a great time to relax after a long working week, but what's there to do, that's fun, cheap, and isn't going to wear you out doing it. 
This is what I found on that love/hate thingy called 'Facebook'...(come on, don't judge me, you play on there too, I know.:)

It's all about painting Rocks!

Pretty when coloured in dots

Look at what's been posted up on our group site.
Some new rocks ready to be hidden in the area. Cool.

My Grandson loves his new find. A strawberry rock!.
These are pretty too, great idea people have
painting dots, looks easy. 
Have you ever played Geocaching?.
 Its a hide-in-seek game, that's played all over the world, but here is a new, well it's new to me!. Hide-in-seek little rocks!, that's right, rocks. Hidden all around my home town. Paint away to your heart's content. That's all there is to it. If you know someone on facebook!, get them to take a photo of your beautiful creation and tell everyone roughly where you placed it, so some lucky person can find it. Careful not to put it in a place that will damage plant life or nothing else around it.
  It's all about making someone's day brighter, finding a beautiful master piece. 
Vanish it, so the weather will be kind to it and wait for someone to find it.
 There is a group started here in my home town, called 'Tauranga Rocks', maybe you can start up a group in yours, simply put your groups name on the back of your rock, start to track where they move on to. It's fun for the whole family. Something for the kids and parents to do together on the weekends, who doesn't want to paint a rock!

Love ❤ is...

To my Grandson Connor
We love ❤ you
 You are everything to us, I wish to tell you, thank you for giving us so much joy, we know you are only 4yrs old right now, but when you are with us, life is simply better. We love when you tell us stories of your day, it's such a delight to see your face, as you tell us how much fun you have playing with your mates. Dancing to music, been your favourite.
 Thank you for reminding us, life can be so much easier if you stop and look at the simple things.

Mums are Forever

Dear Mum,
I miss you dearly.
Your kind and warm heart, your way you have when times were hard, the magic you had, you just knew, no words needed to be spoken before you gave a gentle smile, that look you had that would make things okay. Wishing you are still here with us to talk too. Just to sit and enjoying a cup of tea, lovingly looking at your well kept garden 🏡, you did love your garden. 💐. I'll always remember when you came to visit with freshly picked rose's for me, but that was sometime ago now, as your last few years in a rest home, you didn't enjoy one little bit. We knew Mum, that's when it was our turn to bring a smile to your face, armed with beautiful rose's for you ❤ .
I can't believe its only been a few weeks now, that you have passed away to become an Angel above. May your pain be gone and you are enjoying the company with Dad by your side.
You will always be in my daily thoughts.
Your loving daughter

Trina x❤x

It's All About Timing

It's been a while since I've sat down to talk with you guys, I'm so sorry, but I've some-what got a little busy, you know, very boring really, so I thought, hey, instead of keeping you guys enlightened with my journey of sorts. I thought, lets just take a teeny break from each other and have a big catch up when I return. 
This 'Life Changing' Courier Business I've brought, has not gone smoothly as planned, well, to be fair, actually, nobody planned what would follow after signing over to me.

The sweet ride that came with buying this self-employed opportunity, stopped, I mean it just gave up!, after all, I manage over 1,000kms a week in my car and I haven't left town, so I'm not surprised the poor little red car needed to rest.

So off  to the Auctions it went, nobody could fix(gearbox)in that model Toyota in the whole country!. Thank goodness the lovely chap I brought this adventure from gave me the book value to go buy a new car in two days!, yep, I had to have wheels for a courier business, find it tricky walking all those km's by foot. Was time to trade my Holden in and brought a 2014 Mazda3.

And with that said...out with the old and in with the new.
Had my chance you give it a make over, don't know about you guys but I'm wrapped with the new look.
Must be working, I've picked up three more company's since owning it, so that makes 35 in total. Busy Me.
Talk soon xx
