How am I going to achieve my want list?

Thanks for commenting on my wish list Em, it reminded me that I need to have some type of actions in relation to the wish list so here is my action list for my wish list-
1.A house of my own where I could have a veggie garden, paint what I want and not have to deal with bitch landlords.
Well this one is the hard one in economical terms anyway. So the beginning for this one is to start saving, which also relies on No. 4 and also me becoming better at saving. I have a million and one things I want to do with a house of my own but the savings is the first bit. I can probably start on the veggies though and plan to plant some seeds soon. Due to the bitch of a landlord that owns this place not allowing us to plant anything it will be in pots which I will have to remember to water.

2.A horse of my own that I can do dressage and eventing with.
In my spare time when Dios is asleep I have already been daydreaming over my horse via the internet and varius websites. First step though involves pinning Beau down as to whether we are staying in the area or moving. Second back to work to get funding. I'm looking at an ex-racehorse at this stage as that is more achievable then buying the warmblood I drool over.
3.Travel.Travel. Travel. Travel. Travel.
This is a never ending statement but I'm off to Bali in December so I guess a portion of this is achieved. Then Spain within the next few years.
4.To go back to work.
Work has requested I go back three days a week starting in January so I have to arrange care for Dios. I might have to expand this statement to also finding a job that isn't boring but I'll stick with go back to work until I've gone back to work.

I'm prefixing this post with a massive massive touch wood. On Sunday for the first time since December I am going to a music gig. Massive thanks must go to Kao who will be babysitting whilst I go to Parklife for about four hours.  Four hours is awesome, adult time. The last gig I went to I fainted at so I'm hoping not to repeat that performance.

I have had episode of back pain recently and its funny how you forget what pain feels like. It's been so long since my back has been bad that I had forgotten what actual pain feels like. I think though it appears to be getting better. Due to the back episode I had to trade in the baby bjorn I was walking with and have no upgraded to a ergo which is weird and kinda like a backpack. You can hardly feel 9kg's though which is a bonus.

PETA has a triple X domain

and will be soon making porn to encourage people to become vegan. That's it not much else to say really apart from wondering whether this will indeed increase the number of vegans in the world?????

Wildlife spotting

This weekend Beau, Dios, the dogs and I went to Coffs Harbour on a peace keeping mission. The peace keeping mission was a fail but we stayed in a apartment that had a spa and I did some wildlife spotting. On the drive back from taking the dogs and Dios to the beach I spotted a koala on the road. I stopped the car and got out to make sure the koala was off the road and took these photoes:

Both were taken with my 18-55mm lens so I was about half a metre away from the koala and he/she wasn't bothered at all. The poor thing looks like it has clymadia or some other disease by the clowdy look of its eye. I thought about patting her/him but thought it a bad idea and that I was likely to be bitten and scratched.

Discussions in relation to the failed peace keeping mission got me thinking; is it better to say you love someone when you don't or only say you love someone when you really mean it? Personally I would prefer to know that someone means it when they say they love me.

More over it than I could possibly imagine

So I just tried to mow the lawn; perfect time Dios has just gone down for his night sleep, there is still a little bit of light left and most importantly I had advised the neighbours that I would be mowing around 5.30pm.
 First step check fuel level in mower, level is non existant.
Go to the garage to look for fuel can, can't find it so call Beau to find out the fuel can is with him so now go on the mowing.
Put mower back in the garage and hand tear some grass out and end up (surprise surprise) itchy so abandon that plan and will now probably have to pay some guy to do it.
This episode has just added to my hate of being at home and doing domestic duties. Thank god that I had coffee with a friend today or I'm not sure where my mental state would be, no wonder valium is the drug of choice for house wives.

On another note but still related to my hood a pet rabbit was eaten by a fox on our doorstep the other night. I'm not sure why the rabbit was roaming the street but I think it won't do that again:)

What do you want from life

Having alot of thinking time on my hands due to most of my daily talking being with a person under 1 I have started to consider what I want out of life. I have discovered a slight problem with this thinking: my independence has been narrowed to occassionally heading to the supermarket minus bub or going for a run minus bub so my faith in my ability to leave the house by myself for a greater time span then 1 hour is pretty minimal. So factoring in this slight problem what I want from life at the moment isn't very grand.

I want-
A house of my own where I could have a veggie garden, paint what I want and not have to deal with bitch landlords.
A horse of my own that I can do dressage and eventing with.
Travel.Travel. Travel. Travel. Travel.
To go back to work.

Not the best list but it would be nice to achieve some of it.
