When life knocks you down, calmly get back up, smile, and say. "You hit like a bitch."

Cleaning up.


I’ve decided to clean up my blog. I’ve removed all the heavy posts, don’t want to have this constant reminder of the tragedy and the past. I prefer going into the future with positivity and joy! I’m not trying to forget anything, I just want a fresh beginning. I do still have pangs of sorrow every now and then, I still wonder what life would be like if…….But I certainly don’t dwell on it. We have so many things going on, will know more in the weeks to come how it will all pan out.

We had Pete’s sister and family here from NZ in September, it was such a great visit! The boys reconnected with their cousins and just had a blast! We want to go and visit them next, they always come here and we do love travelling, not flying mind you, that pretty much sucks.

The weather is up and down at the moment, it’s gone from extremely hot to mild, I say mild but really I mean cold, it’s just that no-one will believe me, but I do get cold very easily!

My FIL got bitten by a spider 2 weeks ago, he’s been in hospital since last week, and got discharged yesterday. It looked like it could have been a sac spider, it’s cytotoxic venom and it attacked his tissue. His whole leg and foot is now swollen and has this deep purple colour. Pete and I just cant’t believe it, he really doesn’t deserve this now, he just had a fantastic 80th birthday with friends and family and he’s such a fit guy. We do hope his recovery is swift and that he’ll be able to get on with his life soon. The boys are so fond of their Grandpa, they really do need each other. So we will be visiting him lots to keep his spirits up, besides, he’s gonna need alot of entertaining, he is a very busy Grandpa and does not like to sit still for long periods!

A GPS is only good if you can remember where you wanted to go in the first place.
