January 2013

Well what a month January has been. We were supposed to be travelling around Australia about now but as I have mentioned life has thrown us a bit of a curve ball we have to dodge. But we will get over it and be on our way in a few months. The end of January also brings the end of another month doing - A Photo a Day - with Fat Mum Slim. I really get a lot of enjoyment having a word presented to me and having to take a photo in connection with the word. I thought I would share a collage of my January photos. Tomorrow I start another new month and I fully intend to upload then on my blog each day.

So Lucky

I am so lucky to have such a great and varied group of friends. I have always known this but when your life is put into a bit of turmoil and your just not to sure which way to turn and your friends step up to the plate it really makes you more aware of just what a great value they are to your life. On Sunday I spent the afternoon with some old and new friends at an Motivational Magic get together. We spent to afternoon talking, card reading, doing a Medicine Wheel (I did one for my affirmations for 2013), eating, laughing, dancing and generally having a great time. I felt so much love from this lovely group of girls I can hardly put it into words. All I can say to Michelle x 2, Lisa, Laraine, Kerry and Jenny thank you for - just being you.

For some reason I cannot upload any new photos so I have had to use a couple from the past.

Johnny Depp

How adorable is Johnny Depp. In my opinion he's not only a very talented actor but he's just a bit sexy!! But when I came across this affirmation today I like him even more. I agree totally and couldn't say it better myself.

New Challenge

Well today should have been the day we left on our 12 month Australia Adventure but unfortunately due to some ill health Shane and I have to deal with we cant leave for a while yet. I believe everything happens for a reason and there is a reason we have to get through this challenge before we head off. It's pretty disappointing but we will get through it together.

To often people are asked what love is and they are stuck for an answer. Those who have been truly in love know how it feels but sometimes hard to put it into words. But I came across this on Facebook today and it just touched my heart strings. Life is a little tough this week with circumstances out of my control and waiting until Friday comes along for some answers. Maybe that is why my heart strings have been touched. Hoping you are all having a lovey week and please remember our lives are so short, make the most of every second.

Blogs, Blogs and more Blogs

I have been sitting here just tapping the Next Blog button on the blogger screen. My goodness there are so many blogs out there and on so many subjects.
Some I can't read the language.
Some I just love and I know I want to follow.
Some that I really don't understand why anyone would want to write about that stuff.
Some that are just photographs that I really like.
Some that are really rude to their readers.
Some that want to share their loves with the world.
Some that tell the world what they should be doing and believing.
Some that should be rated XXX.
Some that give you the facts about certain things.
Some that write way to may words.
Some that share their travel tales.
Some that share just that little bit to much personal stuff.
Some that give tutorials on any subject you can imagine.
Some that are trying to sell you something.
Some that give reviews on various things.

I love to follow some blogs but sometimes life gets in the way and before you know it you have weeks to catch up on a person blog. Please know that I do read your blogs but sometimes (well most of the time) just don't get around to make a comment. I apologize because being a blogger I know how exciting it is when you get a comment.

But then these are really my own opinions.

Even though some of these blogs are totally not to my taste it is good to have so much variety in our lives.

New Toy

I am just loving my new iPad, that I bought for myself for Christmas. That's not to say I could ever live without my laptop! I have bought my first book to read on it and then today I bought the Louise L Hay - I Can Do It calendar app. Each day I am presented with a beautiful photo and an inspiring affirmation. It's a great to reinforce just how important I am and how I have to put myself first.
Do you put yourself first? If not well maybe you should!

Tonight I really can't think of anything to write - I have had a pretty draining day. So I just thought I would show off my two beautiful grand children. They don't get to spend any time together as they live in separate states, but it is good to see they are having fun. On the front of the bike is O'Shea who is 17 months and behind is Clare who is now 19 months. I am so grateful for the wonderful family I have.

Welcome 2013

Another Christmas and New Years Eve has passed and now we move onto another wonderful year. For me 2012 was a pretty good year, there were a few bumps in the road but all in all it was pretty good. I usually make some New Years resolutions, but like most of the population they fall by the wayside by January end! So this year I have made it easy for myself and only made one resolution that I should be able to keep. My 2013 resolution is to be true to myself, to look after me and do what is best for me. What will 2013 hold for me? With our 12 month Australia Adventure almost upon us I am sure I am going to have a year full of excitement. It has also hit me just how much I am going to miss my wonderful family and a few close friends so thank goodness for iPhones, iPads, Internet, Skype, Facebook, Facetime, Blogs and any other form of communication I will be using.
I would like to wish everyone out there the very best 2013
and may it bring all the best you can wish for.
Remember your best friend is YOU.
