Goodbye 2010 - Hello 2011

Goodbye 2010 - what did the year hold for you?
As with every year, the twelve months are filled with good, bad, happiness and sadness. I love the celebration of finishing one year and love looking forward to the adventures in the new year. 2010 for me was one of many emotions, it was the year I became an orphan when I lost my beautiful Dad in February. It was also a year that I got a brand new sexy black "RAV4" car, I had a wonderful holiday in "Far North Queensland" spending some time just indulging myself in myself, which was exactly what I needed at that time. I decided to leave my career in travel that I had worked in for 15 years and just do casual work when I wanted to work. I spent some wonderful times with my family and friends. I had a great holiday in Bali with a great bunch of girls. I realized just how much I loved and relied on my cousin Susan when she was very sick and now that she is on the mend, I am even more aware of just how short our lives are. 

2011 - What will the next 12 months hold for us?
 I know my 2011 is going to be a fantastic one as I already have a few things on the horizon. Shane and I have a cruise organised to some of the islands of New Caledonia and Vanuatu in April. In May I start an exciting 12 months looking after friends Bed and Breakfast in Daylesford. Then my very exciting news for the year is that I am going to become a Grandmother!!! Yes a Granny - to two babies - both my children are expecting babies. Rachel and Luke are due in June and Shane and Stacey are due in July.
I am very excited!!!!


  1. Ahh, Davine, what wonderful news! New Life in 2011! Woo Hoo! Ooh, I will have to make New Baby cards for my New Grandmother friend! LOL.

  2. Wooohoooo! Congrats Davine, and two babies to love and spoil! How exciting!

    Your year last year was a tough one I remember, you had an emotional year but you know how to look after yourself and taking that time out I think did you the world of good. You are a fantastic lady with tons of love and spirit to share, and wow, you will be blessed to share your gifts with not one but two babies in the near future! I'm so happy for you and your children Davine. I wouldn't trade being a grandma for anything in this entire planet!

  3. Fantastic news! Granchildren, brilliant!!!
    A mixed year for you in 2010, but yes, your 2011 looks much better!
    Sincerely wishing all the best in 2011 Davine!
