Wishing you all a fantastic healthy and happy 2008.
Me - well I didn't end 2007 or start 2008 too well. I ended up with glandular fever Sunday night and only know just getting rid of the horrible throat, achey bones and temp although I can't believe how tired you do get - I was ready for bed last night at 7pm and went to bed at 8pm while Gary had to go get Jess from across the road and Chionia sung herself to sleep.
I do need to say a few things though.....
As many of you may know I have been part of a baby's scrappers group on Essential Baby since I started scrapping - before meeting this absolutely beautiful bunch of ladies I was very wary of chat rooms etc - all for a good reason there are some horrible places out there on the www BUT - this group of ladies within days have organised a cleaner for me to help out for several weeks - now most of these wonderful ladies I have never even met irl and only know them through EB - I don't know how to thank them all - their thoughtfulness and kindness always amazes me and I never thought I would be a recipient of it but here I am. I only wish they all lived closer so I could thank them in person. Even Gary was stumped for words when I told him last night. I could scount some of you as some of my closest friends and that is weird seeing I have never met you as such. Thankyou thankyou thankyou......
Fiona - you deserve a huge thanks too - you have been looking out for me and I know you will keep me in line and tell me off if I do too much. Thanks for our chat yesterday.
Me - not sure what to expect with GF but will take it easy over the next few weeks / months and do what I need to get better. I have stopped teaching for the next month or so and cut back on work - will be organising a bookkeeper to help out once a week and Chionia goes back to daycare next week. There are a few weeks before school starts so hopefully I can get on top of most of it and just take things one day at a timebefore then. Thankyou everyone for your kindwords and concern. Maybe it is meant to be - to make me slow down and reassess things (yes mum I can hear you!) 2008 will be a good year.
ok I am off to check out where chionia is cause it has gone too quiet for my liking and will update - left some photo's of our time in Dunsborough
