I have just discovered my three darlings have all got bets on how long I will stay at home ! !!! What a cheek so I am now more than ever determined to make this work.
On a more serious note our son Mark is off to climb Kilimanjaro early in September & while I am excited for him I am also anxious too. Its awfully hard letting your kids go ( LOL he is 25 !!) but its still not that easy. He's climbing with four very good friends & they are making the trip in memory of James Dwyer who was killed in action on 27 December 2006 in Afghanistan, I am glad for them all just will be happy when they are all back home.

So I decide to take the advice of Bernie about positive thinking on her blog a while back.
- I have faith & am loved by God.
- I have a warm loving home with two out three children still home.
- I have a fantastic husband & even after 29 years are just so together - he is my best friend.
- I work from home & am enjoying it. I have freedom & am enjoying it.
- I enjoy my bed at the end of the day & I so enjoy long hot showers.
- I have good friends who share.
So here is to a fantastic new week to everyone.
On a really positive note Kylie & I went to Giselle the ballet & it was stunning, the dancing, music & just everything. Kylie decided we had to dress for the occasion & I am so glad we did as for once the Durbanites out did themselves.

My DH always has travelled every week I was always at home because of school, well now I am with him most of the time but its tiring & hotel food is not great all the time - am I abnormal ? or just crazy. I had this "picture" in my head of how it would be ( you know the one of warm fuzzy perfection.) Well its really not. I have been back since the 24 of July but at home for 6 nights altogether. Hmmm we may have to rethink this one.
I have not had time to scrap, or have my hair cut, go to church craft evenings etc etc- yes I am acting like a spoilt brat. I am as a result not going anywhere next week but poor old DH is off to Joburg once more.
On a more positive note its school sports day tomorrow & I am off to be the guest of honour, when asked what I had to do .... keep the principal happy while we get on with it & hand out trophies. I can do that I am so pleased to be off to school.

Then I went off to see my very dear friend Debs in hospital again with another tumour & I was very shocked because I have been away & the chemo has taken all her hair - I mean all her hair, no eyebrows, no eyelashes, no arm hair and it was really a shock. I faulted thinking I was in the wrong room until she spoke to me. Oh my it was just good old Debs. I ended up being asked to leave we chatted till 16.15 and I will be back tomorrow.
I am thankful for my health & all my blessings, but really more so after chatting with Debs & she reminded me to cherish everyday.
