Birthdays

 Our Miss Jaydene turned 11 on the 7th...we have yet to celebrate with her, will be doing that tomorrow when she spends the day with us...


 My Sonshine, (Simon) turned 44 on the 10th...sheez that makes me feel old!! But hey I had him just before I turned 18, and I loved it!! I grew up with him. 
He is really struggling at the moment, his marriage breakup has turned nastier...and he struggling with not seeing his kids....BUT in the same breathe I have never seen him as happy with anyone as I have seen him with Michelle... 
And our Paul...he would have been 48 on the 11th....ohhhh how we miss him...


On the 10th, I received a message that my Mum's last remaining brother (my Uncle) had passed away. Him and mum were very close, the last 2 born in their family...they even looked alike. 
I cried, made me miss mum all over again....and its the end of an era...that family that was is now all gone....

New Year....



I will be sleeping in the New Year. An early morning for me as I am walking with my jabber buddy.
I started my New Year Resolution today....the usual one...lose weight. I lost 12 kilo's before I went on our cruise....gained 5 of it since then....and boy can I feel it!! 
I want it gone...
2018 is going to be a busy year. I have a op in mid January to repair a prolapse (again!!!), our new grandchild is due in March, hubby is 70 in April (party time!!!) and then in May we are off on our holiday and cruise to Alaska/Canada and London.  
So I have 146 days to lose the 5 kilo's I gained and hopefully lose an extra 5 kilo's to get to a number I haven't been to in years....doable YES!!! I just have to stick to my plan....

So my last post for 2017 is to wish you all from my house to yours...Good Luck, good health and happiness for 2018.



                     HAPPY NEW YEAR

Christmas Day








Had one of the best Christmas Days in awhile. Lots of laughs along with some good food and company. William wasn't well, but he was still able to enjoy himself. Was a little over-whelmed when Mummy and Daddy and his Uncles had a full on nerf gun war...then a water balloon fight.... it all bought a big smile to my face. Got them together and got this series of pics...I just love them....the bond between them shines.

Nothing exciting....

is happening.....and it doesn't matter if it is as no one reads or comments. Just as well I do this blog for myself really.

Had a family gathering on the 25th for our Christmas. With the way things are at the moment its highly unlikely that we'll have the day together. The situation with Simon and Tracey is nasty and ongoing. Tanya rarely comes out here now that Paul is no longer with us, the grandee's are all growing up and doing their own things.....so it will be just us Shawn and Kylee...

Shawn is going real well. He's lonely and bored but is afraid to anyway in case he gets into the wrong company, and anyways he can't afford too. He has Shaz that has stuck by him, but I can't stand her, or trust her for that matter. Kylee and Garry try and help him out but with the hours that they work they find it hard. I am looking into groups and organisations to help him out....

And as for the "diet" ............

home sweet home....

Holiday is over, arrived back on Friday evening at 6pm and it was back to work at 6am next morning....I can tell you after that 8 hour shift I knew my holiday was well and truly over!!! 
We had a fantastic time....now its dream about the next one.....and you know what thats only 189 days away ....





 We enjoyed looking around Fiji and loved the people....but I don't think we'll go back there again....well not unless a real cheap cruise come up. Its a place that once you see part of it, you seen it all...well that was my impression anyways. The Fijian's are the most happy friendliest people ever...we enjoyed our time with them. 


All was well with everyone when we returned.  Kylee's bump is expanding....and our little GRANDDAUGHTER is a active healthy little girl with 10 fingers and 10 toes. 

Shawn has settled in home...he potters around here with his father helping him out. He is undergoing counselling and a few other activities that his correction officer is making him do under the terms of his release. As he said, its better than sitting around jail....
He is unsure as to how long he has to do all this counselling....hope they don't throw too much at him at once and he becomes overwhelmed...seems as though they might be as he has counselling for his well being, drug and alchohol and other for his "head space" as he calls it...

House looks like a bomb has hit it ... clothes everywhere, some to wash, some to fold, some to put away.... best go do something.

Holiday time.....

Tomorrow morning is the day we get taken to the airport, we fly to Sydney and spend a few days with our friends who will drop us off up at the ship on Sunday.....
Today we have spent doing the last minute things, I stripped the beds and washed towels, had my haircut .... Ted mowed the lawns, put the retic on a timer...

Kylee, Garry and William are moving in to help Shawn out, plus he will help them with the babysitting duties while they both work. 



Kylee is going well, getting quite the little tum now ^^^^^^
She has a ultrasound on Monday, and she can find out the gender too. She has decided if "its" legs are open and they can see they will find out BUT if they have to look to see they won't find out.
She has been given instructions to Facebook message me as soon as possible with gender. 
I thinking girl. 

Right off to zip up cases and weigh them.
