Wow what an inspiration you are

Sooo much has happened and you have got through it, well done you.

I hope the future is a lot more magical for you guys, you so deserve it.

Is George Lombard really that good? as I have a dilema at the mo that needs good advice, would you really recommend him?

Anyhow wishing you loads of love luck and happiness from now on.

We have been here 2 years in September and are loving every minute of it still. Lo. xxx

George is really very good, I can recommend him totally.

I just wish that if I could have anything, and that would be we could be financially secure and not have to worry about money.

But things are OK for now.

Very nice to read something like this. My citizenship ceremony has just been confirmed for 1400 Hrs, Tuesday, 3rd August 2010. Just me and the missus and the mayor and no press.

Best of luck to you.

Well we didnt have any out of pocket expenses as it was all on medicare. I find it a pain paying for my inhalers individually when I used to have a pre payment certificate. But at least I automatically get 5 repeats here.

I wish I had the cash to do the house up and for Mr PP to not work the hours he does, he is alot more fragile since the crash, he gets tired easily and his ribs havent really healed as they were shattered in different places, he can still feel them click and cant swim or lie on his side and that is a year on so I cant see that getting any better if it hasnt already.

We would like to move to Roleystone if we could - I love it there but Mr PP would not want to drive that after a late shift or if he is on breakfasts so thats only a goer if we had the money to work less hours.

Basically money doesnt buy happiness but it takes the worry off things and gives you choices, as for happiness - well you have to find that within yourself.

But at least we have a house which is something I never thought we would get and although it needs work, its a nice feeling not having to ask for permission to do things.

Yes, it will be a year on 18th July at approx 7.34pm, the memory is etched on my mind unfortunately - hence the reason for going for a nice meal with friends.

You do not realise just how much you love someone until you nearly lose them and once you have come close to losing them, the whole dynamics change - you become more fragile emotionally because everything you believed was 'safe and solid' is suddenly not and you see your partner as more fragile and not the physically strong person they once were.

Too true, I am dreading Simon's first 'tour' with the Australian Army, at least back home I had my family for support, but when he goes, I'll miss my family oh so much!!!
