On this Anzac Day....

May we never forget the ultimate sacrifice 
that fell upon our diggers from the past

and bless our present & future diggers

 may they all come home to the safety of our 
beautiful shores.

Lest we Forget....

Another photo from the last post...

Now most people that know me realize that atm the sight of a photo of Soldier boy can reduce this Mumma very quickly to tears.

Well here it is, this is the one that really "gets" me going.

This is a photo of Soldier Boy just before he left with the Dil's little poppin. The heartwrench on his face of leaving a little girl he loves as his own.
That's how BIG this guys heart is.
I would like to be able to tell you all that he's going make an awesome Dad when his first born arrives in a few weeks but the fact is he already is.

AND that's all folks...

*****I really wanted to put this photo in my post this morning but at the time I hadn't
asked Dil if I could add the little Poppin's photo in & I didn't want to publish it till I got the oky doky.

26days to go

till I get to meet my first grandbaby.

Little grandbaby will now be born on the 14th May.

Had a great dinner at Dil's last night there was 9 of us all up, all of us family along with Dil's Aunt & cousin from England.
Mmmm... maybe or maybe not my youngest son might have been a bit sweet on the 15yo cousin (he won't be :) at me when he sees this lol!)

And who do you think calls while we were all sitting around eating, talking & laughing?? Soldier Boy so of course the phone got passed around & around the table. Everyone got to have a good chat as he was able to stay on the line a fair while. Needless to say lots of love hugs & kisses were sent down the phone.

One last kiss for Soldier Boy's firstborn babe-he won't get to
see his babe till it's a couple of months old.

Last photo's of a BIG/little brother - 61/2yrs between them
you wouldn't thunk it!!

and of course the sad little sister

Goodbyes.......can't wait till the day I see my baby hold his baby.

It's a beautiful autumn day outside so I'm going out to enjoy it...

It's a hen's night

in more ways than one atm....

Tonight I have been invited to a friends Hen's night at one of the hottest little places on the Sunshine Coast-Hot Pipis at Mooloolaba which I'm so looking forward to.

The trouble is I'm in a bit of a dilemma as to if I should go or not. The thing is it's a bit of a drive over there-say around 50mins - to far for public transport, so if I go I can't have a drink as I have to drive, darling partner honey that he is says he will drive me there & he'll sit in the car doing crosswords as he wants me to go. I can't expect him to do this even though he is quite willing too. The bottom line is he would be willing to do anything for me it's just not right for me to agree to it.
Besides I know it will be a LONGGGG! night.

Anyway I'll think about that one.
Before then I am going with my Dil today for a blood test & scan as she hasn't been well. She has had to have blood transfusions & lots of other yucky things happening.
I so wish my Soldier Boy son was here for her at this time but he can't be & that's that.

Very excited though that it's only 6wks to go till I meet my first beautiful grandbaby.

So coming to the other hen problem last night a fox? Town dog? got in & took one of my best hens & her 8 six wk old baby chicks. I am disappointed as she was such a good mummy & the last couple of years has hatched me out about 20-25chicks a year. Which with the sale of them always helps towards paying for chook grain. The poor thing.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend whatever you do

Sorry about being absent so much.....

but this is how it is atm....
thank goodness for these.....

It's a rough time but everything ALWAYS works out in the end.

On a lovelier note my darling youngest son is partnering a young lady in our local show ball. At the moment they are learning several dances along with etiquette. Not bad for a young man with Aspergers. I am so so proud of him (as I am of all my kids) but over the years this boy has continued to surprise & astonish us with his way.

I'm so excited for the night of the ball!!

Hope you all take care in my extended absences....
