Do you ever wonder?

Do you ever wonder what makes people tick or come up with ideas.At the pool the other day my son and a friend where talking about making the earth floatable it all game around due to way our earth is changing,

I asked what would you use to float it with ,"beer can and coke cans" was the answer I then asked what would you hold it together with "stickytape" was there answer

As I asked each question all the answers related back to something really simple in each ones home which they use every day of the week .

they are 14 and 15 years old but they had some great ideas and plan

My question to you is :- What can you do today for the world - even if it's a samll thing in the long run it will add up

I work at a shop and a person brought 2 drinks and asked could he pop the empty containers in the bin I said leave them on counter I'll pop them in the recycle bin

his coment was Cool Thanks thats great

it was onlysomething small but made him feel good

here's a huge catch up for those who follow along

The court case is still happening and hopefully soon we will have an out come of some sort

My middle son rolled his car a few times but everyone was okay it caused a few headaches at the tie but all is well now and all teens are happy again

I resigned from my job yep I did - lots of reasons but sometimes you have to step back which is what I did and it was teh right thing for me .Sure it was good money but you know what money isn't everything and I know I was placed here to do more than work for good money

It has changed the way I look at things and the way I supply things for my family ,it gives me time to spend with every child(sad when you don't know your own child up street), to enjoy other peoples company and do some things for me but most of all it has given me my freedom back and now I'm less busy which I love.

it's also given me my easy nature back again I don't stress much but when things get on top of me I get crabby and annoyed easy and thats what was happening so I have made the right choice for myself

I did achieve my goal of being coordinator but I never said how long I would be one so I'm happy as I still achieved my goal

since Christmas my dad got the shingles and is okay they ope to come and stay next month
my youngest soon goes back to school but he has had a great school holiday woth lots of trips here and everywhere
