Winter Olympics

Hi, I’m back. This is the first time I have turned my laptop on in four days and what an emotional four days it has been. Most of the time my emotions are stable but then all of a sudden a downer creeps up on me and I am in tears. I am aware that this is totally normal after loosing my Dad, but it doesn’t make it any easier. But I also know that I have to look after myself, by treating myself like my very best friend. Dads funeral was on Friday and it was very sad but also very nice. I put together a group of photos of him with the song “You’ll never walk alone” by Gerry and the Pacemakers. It was an extremely sad song and had most of the visitors in tears, which is exactly what I wanted. I decided I didn’t want Rachel and me to be the only two crying. I was really glad when the day had ended, now I can concentrate on life and what ever it brings.

“Davine Time” update – Yes I still have tried to fit some ME TIME into my day. It has been a lot of looking at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Now I don’t know how many people will agree with me but I just love watching the “Curling”. I haven’t come across anyone else who enjoys it, but oh well I do. My other most favourite of the games is the ice-hockey. I have loved watching ice-hockey since we lived in Canada. I will definitely be up early tomorrow morning to watch the Grand Final game between Canada & USA.


  1. I figured thatr was where you were.

    One thing to ask, if I may, please? Where did your parents find the name Davine? If is very unusual and very '30s movie-starish.

  2. Oh I like the '30s movie starish idea, but actually my Dads best friends name was David so when I came out a girl Mum invented Davine. I would love to meet someone else with my name.

  3. You do have a lovely name. I thought it was probably a family name. My daughter is named for my first husbands best friend as well. And I made up GK's name. She was to have been a boy and her name would have been Garrod, but when we found out she was to be a girl instead, Shelley said she had to be nameed something that sounded like Gerea (prounounced like Sara with a G).
    Sounds like you are doing very well and I am glad. ((((hugs))))

  4. Welcome back Davine, it's good to hear from you once again. Those Olympics have put me a tad bit behind and after today, it's nose to the grindstone.

    I hope that you enjoy the game today, it's going to be one heck of a good game!

  5. Welcome Back.. i wish i had time to watch the ice hockey... i love it.

  6. Hello Davine, please you're back.
    My thoughts have been with you.

    Good you've found the time to watch the progress of the winter games.

    You take care, Big Hug friend!

  7. Hi Davine! Sending warm hugs of welcome back! The Olympics were awesome - the winter ones are my favorites. Makes me want to go skiing again, tho not on those huge mountains!


I would love to hear your comments.
