Making Memories....Easter is here !!!

Wow, time truly is flying by, yet again...

Here we are at the end of yet another busy and hectic School term and now we are looking forward to a yummy and restful " Easter " long weekend and one week of School Holidays to follow !!!

Although I am interested in the Religious meanings of the Easter Long weekend, we are also a family of and with our own traditions and so am very much looking forward to being with my extended family and making new memories for our children to remember...

Of course the thought of scrumptious roast pork, crunchy potatoes and all the trimmings , followed by chocolatey treats, would make anyone's mouth drool...haha

The smell of the meat cooking in the oven, flows deliciously through the whole house and greets our visitors at the front door !!! Something we remember from one year to the next...

" Happy Easter " everyone and I hope you all have a great and well earned 'long weekend' !!!

Reminiscing...and St Patrick's Day !

I think it must be that time...where we have started to think about old friends, neighbourhoods and the fun we had. Both my siblings are also at this stage of our lives and I am happy to say that we are re-connecting with our childhood friends.

It conjures up good times and bad, bike riding and scootering down a very steep hill, ( our street at one end ! lol ). Making up dances to our favourite 70's music, wearing our 'peace' necklaces, swimming the summer away at the beach and in our pools, great New Year's Eve parties with our Neighbours - oh, and so much more !

It would be great to meet up again and hopefully we all will, soon ! We are all different now, on the outside but 'yesterday' is right there , on the inside...

Wonderful memories and much to laugh and cry much to share...

I also just wanted to wish you all a very happy " St Patrick's Day " , to all those that share an Irish heritage !

Bye for now.

Hectic Life !!!

Well...I started off originally with so much to say and so much inspiration to write and then...nothing !!! LOL

I think though, life just becomes so hectic sometimes - family life, illness...that you loose what you started out to do or be, to change I have to crawl my way back to that good and new 'space' I had found myself in !!!

I am excited to say that I am very much looking forward to furthering my spiritual quest, by attending Lisa William's Mediumship weekend in just a few months !!! I am hoping to learn much and be with like minded people as well as meeting many 'Lisa' friends for the first time !!!

So I do have so much to look forward too !!!

My second youngest daughter celebrated her birthday this weekend - always a fun-filled time, spent with family and friends !!! It did have me reminiscing though, about where have the years gone...but at the same time, what a great future lies ahead for us all...

Bye for now and I hope to write again soon !!! (Amazing how when you think there is nothing to could go on forever...haha)

Care for the Disabled

This is a topic that has been on my mind before but seeing yet another 'story' on a nightly news program, brought back just how in need they are...

It is so sad to see that young people who are disabled, either from birth or due to a head injury, are placed into Nursing Homes...I understand this is all that is available and that they do their best to give the 24 hour care required but it has been said by families, that they are not able to obtain vitally needed physiotherapy, to help them slowly gain back, the use of their bodies.

Funds are desperately needed , so that specially built 'homes' can be built for these young people, who should be allowed to live together in a bright and happy have fun and to be out in the sunshine, whenever stated also, on the news program.

Some families have pooled their resources in one area, to make such a home possible but this is not always financially possible for others...and so the responsibility has fallen onto the family, who struggle with this daily care, in their own homes...

I wish there was an easy answer, perhaps the corporate sector could include this, when deciding who and what charity to help each year...that would be wonderful...

Something we all need to think about for " There But For the Grace of God, Go I ".

It is on my wish list of people to help, should I ever have the means to do so...

In fact this is close to my heart more than ever now, with a friend who may or maynot recover from an injury to her brain and who may need such care...

I hope everyone has a great week and take care.
