Road Trip

My beautiful friend Jennelle is 50. Carrah and I are off to Pinjarra to spend the weekend with Jennelle and her three daughters.

Feeling Loved

Yesterday I took Riley for a ride on Henry.  This morning Wayne was doing stuff in the shed, and had the dogs out the front. I had a doctor's appointment.  As I went up the driveway on Henry, Riley followed me. Wayne picked her up so I could leave. When I got almost to George rd (100 metres from home), my phone rang. I answered it on my watch; it was Wayne. I said to him: it's ok, she's here. Exactly as I answered, Riley jumped up onto Henry.  Apparently as soon as her put her back on th

Cancer

Tomorrow is four months since my beloved cousin Jason died. Seems like a lifetime.  On Sunday, a lady I've known my whole life died after a very quick battle with ovarian cancer.  Last week I had a mammogram and a half (had to do one side twice) and two ultrasounds. I have a lump in my neck and one in my boob. As my mum is a breast cancer survivor , I always worry about things like that. I kept thinking that God has already given me more than I can handle. He wouldn't be that

My Cousin Jason

Not sure if you remember me letting you know about my cousin Jason, who had cancer?   He died. Very sad. He was only 51.   Wayne and I were very humbled to be invited to the funeral.  Only 10 people allowed at the moment, and JD thought enough of us to include us on his list.   It was a lovely funeral.  His wife Robyn and sister Kerry did a great job organising it in such trying circumstances.    I'll miss Jason so much, but glad he's no longer suffering.

My Ivy

I have had the worst week EVER.   My precious Ivy is sick.  She started walking all wonky like she'd had a stroke.   At first we thought her back was broken.  Totally devo'd.    Took her to the vet the next day to discover she has a parasite that's affected her brain.    My little kindred spirit.    I decided to send her to heaven, but wanted a few days with her first.   Kind of a mistake.   Kind of.  After many many many tears, I decid

Memory Lane

I usually don't like to reminisce. I'm sure you know what I mean, reminiscing is a constant reminder of what we could do. Although... At the moment, I'm having Carrah scan old photos into my phone, then I'm making digital scrapbooking layouts.  My current lot of photos is me and my main bestie when we lived in England during the mid 90s. I've been texting Jennelle some photos and we've been having a great laugh. Maybe remembering old times is good for the soul. After all

Card Making

Since becoming disabled, I have had to alter my interests. I love to read, but can no longer hold a book open and turn pages. Well, I guess I could have the book on a flat surface and use my head to hold the book so I could turn the page, but you lose fluency. So now I read on my iPad.  I used to tap dance and play badminton.    My interest now, has been for about 4 years, is card making. I have this you beaut machine that trims paper. I'm also very selective about which

Counselling

I've been to counselling about other...issues...besides all This.   It was really useful.  I've been to this lady before, when Carrah was a baby.   Even though it's been years since I have seen her professionally, we still had that connection.   It was really nice not having to tell old stories for Kathy to make sense of new stories.    We all cope differently, but it is something I would recommend giving a go.

Rain!!

Excited much!!   We have rain!!   Everything has been so dry here.  We've had catastrophic fire warnings, but no fires to speak of.   The rain is such a welcome event. I hope it sticks around.

Morning Tea

My church, whilst not old, needs a new roof. So, me and two of my friends are determined to raise money to help pay for the roof. Last year we raised $450 selling handmade Christmas cards.   This year, so far, we've decided to hold a morning tea in the church hall.   We are going to have raffles, a small craft stall and some entertainment.    I'm so excited! I love all the behind the scenes stuff. Who am I kidding?? I love all the stuff.  I'll probably be

After Everyone

I kept thinking,  after I've done ____ for ____ I'll get back to the site. But along comes the next Fill In The Blanks. Is it wrong to put myself first? Is it? It feels wrong. But good wrong. Like, I just got a puppy wrong. Her name is Riley, she's 12 weeks old and we got her from the dog shelter.  I love her so much. We didn't need another pet, she's #7, but hey. What are you going to do? She snuggles in, licks my hand, and looks at me with unconditional love. She's all
