Can it really be a year since i left the grey skies of Newcastle for the sunny skies of oz. Where has that time got to. How i wish then it was for a permanent move to oz. However it was only for a 2 week holiday.

I have so many happy memories of the things the V and i did whilst exploring parts of Melbourne, and Philip Island, as well as parts of NSW. We met rellies who we had never met with before, some great people off BE who i had only known on line.

That year has seen ups and downs. The worst times were when my middle son shattered his arm shortly after we got back from oz requiring pins and plates to be inserted in to his arm. Thankully it has not affectted him in the slightest. Then i lost my Granda in November, I still feel his presence now and again when i hear certain country and western music played. The loss of  Ina is still very hard to come to terms with. I still cant delete her number from my mobile or scrub her name from the address book. I really do miss our chats where we would put the world to rights. I try not to dwell too much on the downs , instead i try and concentrate on the ups.

The best of course has to be having my family back together , we eargerly look forward to next Oct when as a family we will once again venture to oz to give the boys a glimpse of what is to come.

If the past 12 months is anything to go by then it will be here before you know it.

Ive started my course, although none of the course materials have arrived but that has not deterred me ive been on the student home page and down loaded the first work book, so i wont fall behind.

Im all stiff from the gym yesterday, so studying has been an easy option for today. Although its tiring looking at a pc screen all day.lol

Gotta get back to it
