Yes we got Katherine and Jasons invite today..
1...No we aren't going. Alan has no leave and I sure as heck wouldn't spend our New Zealand Holiday money on that trip for me alone.
2..No I am not going to the engagement party as it is easter and I have a few things already to do...and I am going to Sydney later in April..
3.. YES I would go if we hadknown about it and saved and had storted my holidays (well Al too) I am a bit disappointed in the wedding as I am guessing this is the first i will have missed EVER..
I am sure it will be wonderful but not without me there of course..
Yes our NZ holiday is very exciting. We fly out late on Saturday night the 5th September and back into Brisvegas 3 weeks later early in the Sat AM..we are looking at driving around the South Island only.. It will be a little fresh I beleive but hey I live ina hot climate it will be something nice...different..uneewsual....LOL
Will keep you posted I just hope the exchange rate stays as good as it is or better..

Alan and I and Dan n Del are heading over around 12 noon on Sunday 8th March.
All linen needs to be taken. There are 3 bedrooms with queen size beds ( Alan and I bags one!) and one with 2 single beds, and 1 with 1 single bed. So whoever bags the other 2 queen size beds gets them and needs to bring a set of queen sheets.
Each person will also need to bring towels for themselves and a bathmat for their ensuite..(well 2 couples + Al and I)
The balance that needs to be paid to Al as soon as possible is $300. We are happy to pay the majority as we are covering Clare and AJ, neither of which will be there for the whole time.
When is everyone else coming over??
I think thats it. O also hoping Kimmy and Bethy may bring some games with them. If anyone else thinks of anything please let us know. So excited about the holiday, the hens night AND the wedding. All I need now is a nice "FROCK"
This week has been a pretty rough week for me. Sorry for laying a little low..if anyone had noticed! If not then its all good. I am having today (friday) off work just to help.. I can't quite come up with five favs but hey I am excited about all the above AND our New Zealand holiday..

Yes I too think of all those Mick like people fighting the fires down there and then all the people who have been left with nothing but still have huge memories of such horror.
The enormity of it is just too great. So many dead, so many homes destroyed. Well over 1,000 homes. How many families lives have been touched directly by this. The answer is thousands..
Each time it comes on, I am somehow unable t move away. Each time I see stuff, I cry!!!
So much prayer is needed for that state, for our nation. We really are a nation in mourning

I have decided that I would prefer to just get sick (really sick for a day or 2) and then get better...not this O I feel sick, o my arms and legs ache when I move them, o I am so tired..enough!!!
OK I feel a little better now. AJ is home sick and her world has collapsed around her. She has a little 'nest' in the lounge room and whinges often..she is NOT a good patient. Alan couldn't sleep last night and he went out to the lounge room and turned on the light and "AARRGGHH" AJ was asleep (not for very long. There naturally was a bit of abuse being swung around...so bad those two together.
4 years tomorrow till my anniversary. Can't but help to think of the family of the woman who gave me new life. They must be so sad at this time...love you all

As I have been home alone...(name for a movie maybe) I have realised how fast my life is just Racing by..I can't say slipping away as it is galloping at an extraordinary rate.. so really who cares about dust grime etc
In a few weeks I will be 52..when did I get to be that number..I can't sy old as I really only feel about 40..OK so maybe I am old but gosh.
I feel the past 10 years have gone in a blink of an eye.
It is 4 years on Tuesday since I had my kidney transplant. I praise God for his blessings on me during this time.. Those few years before and after were such a harsh reality for me and now are just a blur..I remember trying so hard to keep fear at bay, of feeling so alone, that life went on for others but life for me was just so hard.. Yes it was areally hard time and the time post transpplant was not so good either..for a while.. but now 4 years down the track Its a part of my past that I hope stays in my past..
So I found some old pictures I thought worthy of a revisit from around that time
yep..not the worst photo
Love the purple gown..and still txting
before I swelled up..
Sam only about 5 months old and Kimmy about 18 years old

at the back of Alans shop. Alan felt that it was councils responsibility to clean it up and the counci did NOT feel this at all. And so the battle commenced with the final call being Alan 1 ...Ballina council 0...yep my amazing husband did it. He got council to do it.
It did take many phone calls, many txts and finally a call to the Advocate...(the local free paper) who then rang the council and within like 1 hour they were there..but yep he won...3 truckloads later..It was once again junk free..you go Alan.
So I am at home unwell yet again.. yesterday I drove to work and turned around and came home again..AND SLEPT for hours..
Last night we had dinner with the younger Tysons..a very enjoyable night. Mind youAlan is NOT so hot at playing Cranium..I am good at some things and terrible at others..
Love to all you fans...and roll on the cooler weather
