New Years Eve

My dear friend Angela gave me this sweet little book for Christmas... As it is New Years Eve here I wanted to share a few of the wonderful quotes from it.... Here are some of my favourites
We find a delight in the beauty and happiness of children that makes the heart too big for the body - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude - Denis Waitley

The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved - loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves - Victor Hugo

I hope you all have a wonderful New Years Eve and that 2008 brings you heaps of love and laughter.....

Home again

Hi everyone
Home again from our little trip to the coast... Lovely mild weather to bike ride, walk, swim and play a little cricket with the family... I can't believe Christmas is over again for another year... It is gently raining on my roof and the kids have just gone with Geoff to his office as he is moving and painting to start his new position next week... I am going to go and put something on for tea and have a bit of a rest and read one of my lovely new books.... I hope all of you had a joyous Christmas.... Talk with you all again soon...

Beautiful gift and the most special of friendships

Well as we get ready to head to the coast and leave my little cottage for a few days... I was sitting here thinking about the wonderful friendships I have made through what I do and I must say I feel so blessed... There are so many of you out there that have opened your hearts up to me and I feel so lucky that this is a part of what I do... I received this amazing present in the mail today from my dear, dear friend Christe Crocker... She touches my heart every day with her sweet emails of friendship and I must say I just ADORE her and her amazing work... So thank you all my friends, I can't wait for heaps more adventures together in 2008 and may Christmas dreams fill your hearts with happiness....

Well I always take photos of my kids to put in cards for friends and family that live away and don't see them that often... I am running so late this year so I just took them yesterday but thought I would share them with you..... I am biased but they are amazing kids that surprise me with so much joy and some times tears each and every day..... They are such a blessing and being a mum to them is definitely the greatest gift I will ever have....

Decorations in my lounge room

Hi everyone
Just thought I would share a few photos (sorry they aren't the best) of my lounge room.... I don't do a huge amount of Christmas decorating but just like to add a few touches... This year we have 2 real trees (even though they are tiny) I wanted real ones this year... It is nearly 10 pm here in Australia and I am a little tired so will hopefully write again soon....
