There's nothing more exhausting than an emotionally charged and busy couple of days. My dear old Dad is no better, I really believe he is getting to the end of his wonderful life. We have spent the last week talking (although very short talks) about some of the things we need to discuss, and he keeps telling me his time is almost up. It is very very sad, but I think he has had a very happy, satisfying 91 years. Last night after Dad was sound asleep I went out for a quick Mexican (my favorite) meal with my beautiful daughter. She has sort of taken on the roll of mothering me as I cope with other stuff. It was just what I needed to revitalise my mind and body. Then tonight I have had my gorgeous boy down from Cairns for one night only. He is a lot quieter than his sister. Where Rachel and I will spend hours non stop talking. Shane and I just sit and have words here and there, but just feeling comfortable to be in each others company. I have also been busy making items for the Christmas Market tomorrow. I am really looking forward this new experience, but still just a little bit nervous. Wishing you all the very best for this coming weekend, enjoy.


  1. I hope the Christmas Market goes well for you! Maybe the economy in Oz is a lot better than here in the U.S. and people will be in the mood to buy!

    I'm sorry to hear that your father's time may soon be up. I am glad that his has been a good and happy life, but we are never ready to see our loved ones decline. It always is such a stressful time.

  2. Wishing you a FABULOUS Market, Davine! Thank you for sharing your world with us ... I do enJOY it. :)

  3. Hello Davine, Wishing you good luck with the Christmas Market, hope all goes well with this.

    Just very sorry to hear about your father . . .
    Not an easy time for you & your family,
    so Take Care!

  4. Hi Davine,
