We had a wonderful holiday on the gold coast 
Carol  my cousin  and my myself at sea world
it was the first time Coral had been there, she had so much fun it was great that I could take her.
If you ever want to hire a car be a ware they want
you to use a creid card, very hard when you dont have one what has happened to good old cash.
I was lucky I found one that took cash no easy
feast. but with someone in a wheel chair you need your own tranport. Carol can walk not very steady,
can not walk far.  I used my brain for a change
every time I needed to get chair out of car I would ask  a man who was near by at the time my back
said thank you.
On returning Carol back to her home I slept  14
hours. Tuff work pushing her around.

Home again

Hi home again went away looking after two beautiful children. Took them to the park, boat ride down the  Tamer river they thought that was cool, but what they really liked was going to hullabon in Launceston they had lots of fun with the balloons making them into dogs handbag and hats.
Back home one night had to take dear husband to hospital today, he is having trouble breathing they really gave him a good going over. He has a bad heart which is a big concern was born with it but is getting worst
 Yes i know everyone is born with a heart. He also is a diabetic and reading's are a bit high.  He is in the best place to get help but dons't stop you from worrying

just saying hi

Hi I have a busy weekend My little god daughter stayed the night.
She is so used to sleeping in mum and dads bed.
The story goes like this we watched a dvd in hubby and my bed then when asleep i
carried her to the single bed,
 told her if she woke she could come back to our bed.
So one hour later in she comes, well me and my man are not small  so we decided my beautiful god daughter and me would  then go to sleep  in the lounge in a reclining chair. Well first i fell asleep only to be woken every hour, we have not one but three clocks that chime on the hour plus one dong half hour. Well today my back hurts and i am still tied. Mind you the little girl is 5 but I could not let her get upset because I know she sleeps with mum and dad.  Things we do to keep the little one's happy. So tonight I will really enjoy my bed. As tomorrow I will be in Launceston helping with the chrildren for a week while mum and dad work .Poor hubby will be on his own.

cheers and by the way I will be taking hand sewing with me.

Thankyou my blog friends you all are helping me get
though a bad time.
It has a been a battle today as things are happening
which is not good . So far no chocolate and that the way it is
going to be.

Tuesday, February 15, 2011

Hi  not feeling the best the last couple days> I have stop eating chocolate and it is playing up with my body. I had stomach banding and I find it hard to eat food, but chocolate always  went done well and tasted good. lol
But the chocolate keeps the weight on, this is the thrird day without.
mind you,  I am pleased I had the op as I have lost a little bit and do not hate my self.
I found after the op there is no back up, to  talk and help with what to eat ,
they just say eat what you like.
Well I sure did but it didnt help to lose weight so at the moment I am taking one day at a time.
Feel like I have let out a lot about me .
