Hi to all my friends (Neil, Geoff, Mares, GA, Stressless, White Knight, Crash Coyote(John)Bridget and I'm sorry if I have missed someone's name)
I have been away at Cairns for 5 days four our 28th wedding anniversary. It was not a perfect holiday at all, things went wrong, I was over emotional, we argued, we went for walks, we couldn't hire a car, we didn't get to do the things we had planned.
So everyday I was on here with my phone reading everyone's posts and I was getting so frustrated because I couldn't reply to anyone, as I didn't have my computer with me. I so much wanted to reply asap and I was thinking of everyone.
Mares, you are a true inspiration to me and others on here. I wish I was with you right now, away from home, away from everyone, we could chat, eat, drink, cry and laugh together. But I know it's not possible (maybe one day) so I am sending you a huge hug. I am sorry I couldn't reply to you earlier, I am thinking so much of you and what you will be going through with the Royal Commission. I praise you so much Mares, you have strength more than what I have ever had, and probably you don't realise. I am glad to see that you are away for a week or so, just to get your head around this. I miss my chats with you and hope to chat again soon.,
GA - I really hope Sydney comes home soon, missing a pet is so difficult. I know I was away for only 5 days and boy I missed my kelpie, Jersey. Actually when I arrived home before she was crying and jumping up to me wanting hugs and kisses. She was actually happier than the kids to see me!!! GA, hope you've come out of your doona and had the lovely drink that Bridget was making you.,
Neil - I'm sorry I haven't been able to reply to you - but as always thinking of you and your family especially your son. I'm not up to date with the latest but I will read your post later. By the way, I love your new picture. I think I need one now, but don't know how, so i will ask my kids to do it for me.
Stressless - As always, you are another tower of strength and you probably don't realise either. I am thinking of you as well and hope you are okay today.
Geoff, I haven't spoken to you for a while but always love what you say to others.
White Knight - thanks for listening to me rant and rave at times, I do go over the top at times with my emotions, but I always enjoy reading what you write.
Crash Coyte (John) - I had to laugh the other day when I read that you were giving Neil a "wog hug". Nothing wrong with that - I am one too. And boy do we know how to give someone a hug!!! How are you going? I am not too bad.
OK, guys I am off to my psych for an interesting session as he knows all about the week of our holiday and I have to re-tell him in a dialectical way (no black and white thinking, no all or nothing thinking, no negatives) - that is going to be difficult!!
Let you know how it goes
Take care everyone
