Instead of heading out on the highway looking for adventure, I seem to have been on a long journey to nowhere ... life is just plodding along, one day at a time. That is not to say there have been some highlights recently ... 2 weeks of holidays from work (back tomorrow) when we flew to Melbourne to visit a very special lady in my life ... Happy Birthday Jenny xxx
We also got to see lots of my hubby's Victorian family while we where there and I really enjoyed spending time with each and every one of them. While we were away, 2 of my daughters and my eldest grand-daughter joined us and it was fun having them along and I think they enjoyed their time over there too.
I am still in a black funk (well maybe now it is just a dark grey) over the loss of my little grand-son and the impact this has had on our family, especially my daughter and son-in-law. I imagine this will get a little darker again when we get to what would have been his birth date. But I am sure that somehow we will continue to move forward, just like countless other families do, each and every day. In a perfect world no-one would have to face these types of challenges, but then we live in a far from perfect world.
I will try and blog more frequently now, and get back to regularly visiting your blogs. I am looking forward to the Aussie Blogging Conference in March when hopefully I will get to meet many of you.
So here's to turning this car around and driving with a sense of purpose and joy.
