My Photo
NSW, Australia
I'm made it past 50! married for over half my life, have 3 kids all grown and I'm loving this part of my life.I was a nurse in my younger days but an unhealthy dose of rheumatoid arthritis put a damper on my career,so I'm at home with the internet.

Really: it's been THAT long?

Quick hello, can't believe it's been a year and a half since I was here. Sorry about that. I've missed you all, and hopefully in the next week or so will get to your blogs and have a catch up.I'm hoping and praying that I find all of you well and happy but law of probability says that might not be possible,but my fingers are crossed .

I got so busy after the twins arrived, I spent the first four months 3 nights a week at my daughters helping as her hubby works shift work.I'd taken on a babysitting job ,closer to her home than mine,so it saved petrol and helped out everywhere ,but,of course  I still have RA and so it started to catch up on me, so when we went on holidays to Bali  for a few weeks,  I quit the babysitting and Gemma coped on her own ,so I only went over on a call out basis, if mum sick or a bubba sick kind of thing.



Then Chloe and Jess borrowed for and bought our local video store and a little house , then we had Xmas,then I turned 50...yeah, you read that right, not impressed, but thats' life.  Danny met Aimee, who is the ONE , we love her to bits too.We volunteered to hand raise Gemma's boxer puppies (fading puppy syndrome)which took up over 3 months ..... then the  twins 1st birthday, a few ups and downs with arthritis ,Les's hip replacement, a family wedding...and here I am . Time has just flown and in that time, I've lacked motivation to do work on my media course and actually write,even in here,so I stayed away. Hopefully we can pick up where we left off, and fingers crossed I find some motivation and some things to write about. Perhaps I need a suggestion box !!


I'll leave you with some pics from the past 18 months.

Happy to 'see' you!!!
I will be 53 this week. Doesn't worry me. I have earned the wrinkles and the gray hair and the stretch marks and the attitude!!!

Babies are precious!! A year already!!

I haven't checked in in a long time, so I am a bit tardy in saying "Welcome Back!". The photos are great, my favorite is the one of the girl chewing on her toes in the car seat. But I can imagine the work involved too. Hang in there and enjoy; as you know, it is all too quickly gone.

I was just thinking that I hadn't seen you in a long time!!! I was cleaning through things (as I was hit with a nasty spammer this weekend) and when I saw you in my list I thought "OH! there she is!"

Holy cow they are BEAUTIFUL!!!

Happy belated birthday!
