Last night Rachels birthday dinner was just what I needed and I think Rachel needed. The Mexican Restaurant “Fiesta” we went to was the best Mexican food. The waitress heard Luke mention it was Rachels birthday, so they decided to give her a “bucket” of Marguerita, luckily with 4 straws. It was so strong I was glad I had driven and I could only have two little sips, but the other three enjoyed it. The night was a perfect night and the only thing that could have made it even better was if my son, Rachels brother Shane could have been there too. But right on time he called Rachel to wish her a “Happy Birthday” and it was like the three of us were together again.
Not sure if I have mentioned this but I have booked a flight to Cairns to stay with Shane and Stacey. I am going on my own; just to spend some time working on my feelings, life and the loss of my Dad. This grieving process is sometimes hard to deal with. It’s amazing how one day you feel really good, almost normal. But then the next day all I want to do is sit and do absolutely nothing but cry. I know it was time for my Dad to go and he and my Mum lived wonderful long lives, but I am just sad and lonely.
“Davine Time” update: Today I actually finished some UFO sewing I have meaning to do for a while. It wasn’t anything exciting just this that had to be done and now they are done.
