Christmas Day tomorrow and hubby and I will spend it alone. 
Tanya has gone up to sisters in Geraldton and going to stay up there till the New Year.
Simon is as far as I know spending his at home as Tracey is working. Things are not too well up there, don't know whats going to happen there. 
Shawn…well he is going through a troublesome stage again, homeless and wandering the streets, sleeping on "friends" couches.
Kylee and Garry can't make it down this year due to the fact she had time off this year,  using her annual leave to have her op….(btw she is looking bloody fantastic) 

We did get to spend time with Tanya and Tracey and all the kids over the weekend and during the week so we have exchanged gifts and had cuddles. 
Shawn came out this evening, raided the fridge, used the shower, borrowed a backpack, loaded it up and left again…so we know he is ok..

Anyways….to one and all….

MERRY CHRISTMAS, blessings to you all xxx

Melt down….

I had been going really well with everything, life, work, weight watchers (where I am still going with the shakes ) and where I was losing a few hundred grams each week, then wham bang thank you, I woke up the other morning in tears and couldn't stop crying.  I ate myself silly trying to stop the emotions pouring out of my eyes. 
 It was like I was back in the first sages of my grief.  Then hubby pointed out after lots of cuddles and talking that Sunday would be the 1st Christmas family get together without mum.   So it all started to make sense. (My niece always has a Xmas dinner at hers with us, her twin, her sister,  my brother and sister and families)
Anyways…2 days of crying, moping around and endless amounts of food later I am back on track…
BTW the lunch was lovely and hard though it was we did have lots of laughs.
