New beginnings

Where to begin, in the last two years lifes taken many turns. But thankfully all for the good. There is a beautiful man in my life "Elton"that I love admire and respect ( he also makes me laugh within an inch of my life). He works in emergency services and is a wonderful man, friend and partner.  

Ashley is now driving on her learners permit and in her final year at school, Natasha is a senior in school and needless to say both girls being teenagers have a very very active social life.

Jonah is now in Grade one at school, he attends Ashley and Natasha's old primary school and much to my surprise I still know a few of the teachers, so here we go again.                    

Noah is getting bigger by the minute, he says he is a big boy and wants to be a Policeman, when he grows up. He starts prep next year but loves pre prep with Miss Nicki his teacher.

Myself well I'm whittling away at life and chosing a new and improved direction. I  am aiming to join the Queensland Ambulance service this year and commence training as a paramedic, that and still writing away. although it might do well to bear in mind that its late here 

Well after much deliberation, (well about 5 minutes) I've decided to share some exciting news, we are expecting. Now before some of you faint or fall off your seats or drop your laptops, we are expecting to have a wonderful holiday in Fiji ... 3 weeks from today !!!! I will include some pics in this post just to drive you all crazy.

Salute to Steve

Hi all, Well what a month this has been, and its only just begun. I turned 33 on the 31st of August. Glad that one is over and then all of these morbit reminders of lives lost. I would honestly think it be better for all the families involved if the media chose to celebrate the lives of these people, Steve and Brocky. Our family are avid fans of Steve and Terri Irwin, they do more than they have to for the wildlife we all say we treasure but do we do what we could. Hmm something to think on. Anyway this is a pic I took at Australia Zoo's Tiger Temple at Bindi's 9th Birthday. And here is a link back to my tribute to them last year. And for all the mums out there Bindi's Fitness dvd is great, it comes with a cd for the car, Jonah loves it and already knows all the words. We will be back up there for Bobs birthday on 1st Dec ( my wee nephew Sorleys birthday) for Jonah's birthday (2nd Dec). We spend the day there for Jonah's birthday. Lots more pics from the Zoo, will post again soon.
