I know I said I would be right back, I don't know where the days have gone lately!! I have so much I am trying to do at the moment and don't seem to be getting any of it done! OK Focus!! One thing at a time hey! I started this post days ago and haven't been able to get back and finish it! Fighting the kids off the computer these days is getting harder and harder with 2 teenangers too!
Life sure does have a way in getting in the way of every day living doesn't it!
I have had a few life hurdles to contend with in the past 6 months. I really don't even know where to start. I have also been on a spiritual journey of self discovery too, and I think this has really helped me get through some pretty tough times. Losing Grandad in April was the hardest thing I have had to go through. After he was months in hospital I only just got to visit him the day before and the day he died. It was so hard leaving him and Grandma in hospital to come home that day, one consolation I have was that he did look peaceful when we left, even though he couldn't acknowledge us I still felt like there was a connection there. We had no sooner got back to Mackay that night from Rockhampton when I got the phone call. I still worry about Grandma especially with their 64th wedding anniversary coming up next month. The funeral was the day after Leonii's B'day and the day before mine so we didn't feel like celebrating very much. My Grandad was more like a Dad to me and was the first close family member I have lost so I didn't know what to expect with the grieving process. I couldn't have done it without the support of all my friends and family. I totally lost my mojo and joy of scrapping for awhile there too, I have only just started taking photo's again since the funeral.
On to other news I am no longer working at Scrap Happy either which was very sad to come to an end, I thoroughly enjoyed my time working there and got to know some pretty amazing ladies, I am pretty lucky to have made so many wonderful friends along the way! But as they say as one door closes another one opens.
So now I am teaching at Scrapbooking Premier in Sarina. I am really looking forward to this new venture too.
Don and the Kids are all good, they have been amazing support for me through everything, I am so lucky to have them in my life and I am so proud of them all!
Leonii has her drivers license now, she is quiet a capable driver too, which is making our job easier, she has already got nearly 20 hours up in the first month only 80 to go!! She is studying art at school this year too and is bringing home some pretty impressive work.
Wil is still footy mad, his team is coming equal second at the moment after the first round. Wil has been getting a few try's again lately, he is starting to find his form again. He is almost a whole head taller than me already and he is still only 14.
Don is still recovering from his spinal surgery he had before christmas, he still gets a bit stiff and sore if he does too much. They replaced a disc in his spine with a titanium pad which is plated and screwed to his spine. What modern medicine can do today is incredible. Was a very worrying time for us though!
So back to life, I feel like the fog is finally lifting again and I can get back into the swing of things. I just hope it is calmer waters ahead for awhile, I have had enough of this rough weather!
Back to a more positive note, I have been doing some scrapping just for me again which has ignited my passion with this obsession all over again!! I leave you with these couple of new ones! I am very happy with the way these have turned out!!
PS: I am slowly setting up new albums of my layouts on the right into themes, I still have more to add and organise. If anyone still has a kit from one of these layouts just send me an email if you get stuck or need a hand. Just let me know if I have missed any you are chasing too. Doing a big blog revamp is still a work in progress!
Thank you to everyone for your friendship and continuous support, you guys all give me great strength!
Thanks for Dropping by!!!
