Merry Christmas

Well we are almost at Christmas 2012. I just love Christmas - to me it is true family time. I feel for the people out there that either do not have a close family or any family or suffer instead of enjoying this time of year. It would be nice if each one of us that have everything we want could reach out to just one person who doesn't and give them some love. I have and it sure makes your heart sing when you know you have helped one person.
I am spending Christmas in Eden with my son Shane, his partner Stacey and my adorable grandson O'Shea. O'Shea is now 17 months and has the energy of a typical little boy. He also has a pretty good vocabulary and at time is a little chatterbox.  I must say I love being a Granny although it is looking like I will be called Gaga.
It looks as though we may have to postpone the departure for our Aussie Adventure for a month and now leave mid February as a few health problems have arisen that have to be addressed before we leave.

Great Company

I am in the middle of a great weekend. Last night I had a night in the city with 5 girlfriends. It has been a while since Alice, Robyn, Sylda, Melissa, Wanda and myself  have had a night out somewhere, so we were all looking forward to it. We had decided to go to a theatre restaurant, stay at one of the casino hotels and just have a nice time together. The theatre restaurant is called Witches in Britches and has been around for quite a number of years.  Well the company was great but the theatre restaurant was the worst place and meal I have ever experienced. I certainly won't be rushing back or recommending it to anyone. But it didn't deter us from having a nice time together. There was lots of talking, laughing and fun. After a yummy breakfast I headed home to have a relaxing afternoon after a pretty late night. I am now looking after my gorgeous grand daughter Clare. She is now 19 months old and really finding her own little personality, sometimes a bit cheeky but still adorable
Today would have been my dear late Mums birthday. I still think of her everyday but I also know she is with me everyday. It's amazing how my life has changed since she left me. Her passing has made me so much aware of my spirituality, it's funny I just know stuff now. I can't explained what I know I just know it. Thank you Mum for making me the woman I am.
I'm having trouble uploading my photos so they will have to wait till later.

More IT Issues !!

With less than 5 weeks before we head off we are just about organised. We have all the bits and pieces needed - just have to find space in the van to store everything. Also at last I am feeling really calm about the whole saga. But the one thing doing my head in is my laptop!! For some reason on some sites if I click on a link to bring up another website it takes me to Frontpage - don't know why this is happening or how to fix it. If there are any IT specialists out there I really need help!!. My other problem is now that I have a laptop, IPhone and IPad I want my diary, music etc to sync on all together but alas that's just not happening - guess I am going to have to do a bit of googling!! Then there's this  thing called Christmas! I think I had better get my shopping completed!!
