Quote of the day - Maya Angelou

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way (s)he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights." Maya Angelou

New chapter seeing your children successful and happy

Being a mum is fantastic. It's the highest of highes and the lowest of lowes. High is happy for them enjoying everything. The only lows is when they have a problem or going through something and you can't help them.
In both my cancer battles I was afraid I would not  be here see this. I am so lucky I am here to see this. 3 amazing sons, 3 successful jobs and wonderful lives. Experienced my second sons wedding 👰 that was amazing. I am lucky to have lovely girls coming into my family now. So life is very exciting. My family is going next year with the first grandchild coming in, what  a way to bring in the new year with a baby. We are all very excited. The baby shower was last week. You know it's so funny they are so lucky these days.
Remember cloth nappies buckets around the house. They only use disposable nappies now. I can remember having 20 nappies soaking and washing was piling up, the new mums seem to have it pretty easy indeed.
Well the start of 2018 introduces a gr…

Is it the age of loss - circle of life

It's funny you get to an age where your life is perfect. You sort out the people you want around. That's easy life is very easy.
Now what I have noticed this year is while we are getting sorted out and planning next year. Our parents are getting older just in the last couple of months watching 2 very lovely parents pass away. Well you see because we are all 50's our parents are all late 70's. Ann and I have been friends 47 years she is wonderful. She lost her Dad in September. The funeral was in Harden NSW. Then 10 weeks ago Jill lost her mum. A stronge lady who has had Lupos a long time. So standing at the parents funeral is the time we reflect on all we have done. Well girls we have been supporting each other for years in all the very wonderful things. Marriage, engagement, babies, christening, divorve and now at the end of the line the loss of a parent. It's wonderful to reflect how lucky we are to have had wonderful parents. Supporting my friends through thick…

Friends the good and the evil

Is it the green eyed monster or just woman can't help themselves. Well here we go, this is important as it's seems common. Watch these people they are vindictive and seems it's the ones that don't have much of a life! So why all the drama. Me .... no idea.
This girl well 43 year old that has been my friend for 10 years and bitched and groaned about so many people behind their backs, did the same to me, confided in her something and I said I am only telling you this no one else. So she runs with it! Tells people so now my stuff has come back through 3 sources. 2 which she hates. Gee I also said to her a month before that I want to tell people my stuff, you can't tell people my stuff. Especially when I say I am only telling you. Again now another time so 3 times I asked her, so she just goes behind my back anyway! To others she does this it's a secret,don't tell I told you!! Wow are we in kindergarten again.
So I have it out with her! Gets really good here. …

Colonoscopy and Endoscopy what are they?

Colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine through a scope placed into the body at the rectum. It is performed routinely every 10 years beginning at age 50 unless symptoms require the study be done earlier. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy is an examination of the esophagus, stomach and small intestine. It is done to evaluate symptoms only. Combining the two procedures allows them to be done with one dose of anesthesia, which is safer.
It's that fun time of the year again. Tomorrow I have my yearly tests. Just a precaution. They are easy tests really,  it's just the lead up. Drinking the 3 sachets of gunk to clean out your system. I am on fluids only today preparing. I wonder if gin and vodka could be deemed ok? Well they are clear fluids!!! 
Probably not but hey what can you do it's worth a try. So today I wasn't allowed my morning coffee, jezzzz I had to have tea so I have already broken my routine. Not a terribly good start to the day. Then guess what to…

Melbourne cup - you have to do this once

Well today in Australia 🇦🇺, the nation stops for our annual Melbourne Cup Day. Spring racing season  is a wonderful time of the year. Truly no one wants to work today. But we do. Normally I would be at a luncheon. Today across the country there is luncheons, fashions parades, horse betting, horse sweeps and champagne flowing, but I am at work argggg
Never mind it was on my bucket list and I did it. It's one of those things you would love to do once, so I have done the big tick off.
It's a glamorous day! Fashion is spectacular the vibe is amazing. I was lucky enough to be in the famous Bird Cage. It was so exciting, celebreties mania.
I talked to Sophie Monk, Lisa Wilkinson, Jamie Packer (he is so tall), Kerry Ann Kennelly.
My advice is maybe don't go into the general section, it looked pretty packed. If you can and you're only doing it once do it in style. Melbournes weather is unpredictable so you don't want to be stuck in a crowed place. The extra money on the…
