365 book

Well last year I started my 365 book which I loved.

I loved decorating the pages with photos and bits and pieces.....But then I got sick and just didn't get
around to it anymore.

But I wanted to try again .So Kev bought me another book and off I went .

I started while I was in hospital so I wrote about that a bit  and have added more photos as I go along.

So now I have almost finished a months worth of entry's.YEAH...

Just showing you a page from my book.

If you want a book like this it is from
  kikki.K and it is a wonderful book.They have shops every where or just order online..

Get one for a gift or just for yourself..  
PS...It is not dated just numbers so you can start anytime....I love it....

Must read

                   Mum knows I love this author so she got me her latest book for christmas.

So if you love to read have a go at this book.

She also has about another 6 books and every one is good.
Mum and I have now read them all....

This is the type of book you just cant put down plus there is the bonus of it being set in Australia.
Like I keep saying an enjoyable read.


The LM  went and picked some of our tomatoes.

He was so happy with his pickings.....

Then nanny and granddad sent a email showing off their tomatoes...

Yum.....but LM's still are cute...

More mixed photos

See I said I would be back with heaps of photos to share.

Fairy Chloe.
I dressed her up and took these.She just smiled and let me do it.Such a good baby.

Bonnie looking  cute sitting in the garden..

I just love this tree.I took the photo from my bedroom window.

More from my window.Look at the tomatoes vine growing up over the arbour.

Ashley new work car.He finished his apprenticeship.
We are both so very proud of him.

This is what happens when you have a girl living in the house.The  LM wants to do what she does.ha ha

I don't want to wear this shirt
.Don't like it....I am not a girl....


Craft for Chloe

Me again with some more photos.

This time just showing some of the craft I made for my new neice Chole....


Kev and Princess Chloe.....

Shame about the picture but rug is crochet using 2 types of wool with big hook.
Then I threaded pink ribbon around it.Looks beautiful and feels so warm.

My dad cut me the letters out.
I love the colours .this is the colour of her room and she has butterfly's every where-hence the butterfly's.

new stockings to hang.

I bought Chloe's stocking and added her name and butterfly's to it.I also found this beautiful stand for her
Christmas ball to hang on..

I went through my dollies and flowers and made these for her.

This is a lamp shade or just a hanging piece for her room.



I'm Back......
Well hello friends..I'm back. What a crap time I have had lately. (and so has everyone who is close to me ).So this is going to be a long post so go get a coffee and sit back and read the ramblings of a mad woman.

After my last post I started to get really sick except I didn't know I was sick.Can you understand that?
Well I just thought  I had a virus  or was taking to many pain killers because all I did was sleep and drink water.

Yes I went to the doctors and the answer they gave me was take more pills.Vicious circle.I even saw my wound doctor 5 days before this happened and he said it was (the wounds) good and he changed my wound cleaning routine and more pills.Once again vicious circle..

So while this was happening I didn't feel like doing anything.Kev looked after the LM did the cooking cleaning etc and Kerry helped as well.So of course there was no blogging.Only good thing to happen was I was losing heaps of weight.

Now I love Christmas and decorating my house But not this year.Kev put up the tree.I didn't even see it till it had been up for 3 days..He also wrapped the presents-well the ones he could find.I am still finding presents in my craft room.Oh well next year.

Anyway Christmas comes and I am a right off  .My mother in law tells me later that I was a grey colour and kept nodding off.Just wasn't with it.I just dont remember much.

So next thing is I don't remember the next few days and then it happened.

Apparently my body shut down.I slid out of bed and Kev and Kerry couldn't get me back in .Kev got worried as things wernt right - I didn't respond to anything.Well Kev called a ambulance (make sure you have ambulance cover as this trip to go a couple of blocks cost $670 less some sort of subsidy so we have to pay around $320) anyway the hospital told Kevin  that I was dehydrated and that my kidneys were starting to shut down.I was put in like intense care .Kev said I was lucky because if this happened while he was at work (he was on holidays ) I would be dead.....yuck

Mum was told and she booked a plane ticket and was coming down. Kerry was there and the LM was with Kev's parents-and me well I don't remember..

Well I don't remember much about this or the next few days.Alan and Lisa came and saw me on Sunday and I sort of remember that.I saw mum well I think I did..

To cut this story short I was in hospital for 14 very long days.I can't walk by myself I need a frame .I have heaps of pills to take.I have manged my pain killers to give me a even pain relief .But the best part is the doctor changed the way I do the leg dressing  (don't know what my other doctor will say) but who cares because it is working.I am finally seeing results.My legs are looking good still a long way to go but OMG they are starting to go away and heal up.

Also I now get a community nurse to come and dress my legs.This is saving us around $400 a month in wound care.Yes $400 sometimes more.But now I don't pay which is good because one of the bandages I need to use cost $10 each for a 10x10 cm piece.But it is working.

Another good thing that happened while in hospital is the time I spent with mum.She was there every day for hours and we just talked and laughed.Oh and she brought me chicken rolls every day for lunch yum.Thanks mum love you xxx
Every girl needs her mum........

Kevin was the same as was Kerry.Kevin was there all the time .He sat with me at night and rubbed my back when the pain was bad.We laughed cryed and I think I fell in love all again with him ...
He is my rock...

So now the good part...pictures... I will try to  keep them in order  but I hope you like them and maybe get a laugh or too.........

Me and the LM .God I look crap...

Learning to walk again,

Yes he is playing a game on his phone.poor thing he must be so bored.

my new best friend
.LM calls this the ambulance and he loves it..

These are the $10 bandages that I now use and I am so happy that they are changing my life.
At the moment it takes around 8 -to 10 of these to use for the wounds.Glad I am not paying and this is 3-4 times a week.

I told you he loves the "ambulance" .He can't stop playing on it...

Sorry this is so long .I have more photos but will put on another post.
I am back and I am here to stay.
