We had the very best of times - we laughed and were silly at the drop of a hat...got up to mischief - so good to do with your adult kids. I showed her the other cemetery where our Irish ancestors are buried and myself found it hard to find them - but now she knows where they are... For me it is important...they made the amazing life we have these days possible - their courage and toughness meant we can sit here in fan or air con coolness in summer...and blog..phone...whatever - this was all unknown to them but they endued and as each generation passed in Australia it improved... we didn't do this they did - so am honouring them and recognising their deprivation...and the hardness of their lives...
Melissa as well took me to Mme Tussards in Sydney - as you can see us hobnobbing with the hoipoloi...
I am amazed that I am so lucky that the girls actually seem to love being with me...I am their mum but as well I am a friend...too many don't have this and its sad really because when we have our babies we set out to be the best we can...
I haven't posted here much of late as I have felt I am going through something and find it hard to write anything much at all... but after these last few weeks it feels like the old thing... the need to write is returning.
