A New Year & A Birthday.....

Well I made it...phew how great is it that 2010 has finally arrived......although I must admit that the pain in my head right now I could do without..... self inflicted by too much booze last night...BUT it was a great night spent with family & friends......& we had our own fireworks display in fact $1000.00 worth, what a great way to see the new year in.....

Today I have lived in Coffs Harbour for 24 years.....do not know where the years have gone....24 years ago I started my new life with Mick who was 3 at the time & Ryno still in my belly, but the 1st of every year is held very dear to me because it is our Ryno's birthday....24 today. The photo below I took on Christmas Day (My sister in law Cheryl is in the back ground, we had Christmas lunch at my Father in laws home down under the Mango Tree).



The photo below was taken last night just before he went out to celebrate both New Year's Eve & his birthday am loving the *Mullet* wig he is wearing......good grief to think we used to walk around with hair like that.....WHAT WERE WE THINKING.......


So my Sweet Darlin' Man here's wishing you a very Happy Birthday...... you know how much we love you..... & although I know you have to go back to WA on Monday I have treasured the time you spent here with us over Chrissie......xxx
You know I feel really good about this year...can feel it in my bones that I have left a lot of rubbish behind with the departure of 2009......have been thinking about NY resolutions & to be honest I'm going to take that slow.....kinda thinking I may just put it off until my 50th birthday this month....after all I am now starting on the 2nd half of my life....yes 100 does sound a good ripe old age to achieve....
I do know I want to get back into painting again....no not the walls although there is still two rooms waiting for me to paint....but painting of roses etc....I am telling my self here that I will be a tad rusty to start off with, but before long it will all come back to me.....
Can you remember back to when you were an itsy bitsy child & dreamt of what you wanted to become when you were all grown up.... well apart from wanting to be an Astronaut I wanted to be a writer..... so kinda thinking this could be the year to get started on that, what always put me off was knowing where to start, now I think maybe it's better to just START, anywhere & go from there, maybe start at the end & work backwards.... who knows.
Our eldest son gave me a very special Chrissie present last year (oh how good it feels to say that) a very special book, a very special book that I just KNOW is going to change my life....how do I know....because it is starting to change already & I have only read about 60 pages so far!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year.....
We love you Ryno xxxx

I am so glad that you are going to start writing that book...I only have one request: That when you publish it, I would like a signed copy...NO KIDDING!

Happy New Year, sweet Lynn! I've been thinking of you and so glad to know you are looking forward to a wonderful new year.

Twenty four years in your home? Wow! If I ever come to visit AUS can I stay with you? :) I can save on hotel costs, etc. HAHAHAHAH

Blessings to you as you get ready to begin the 2nd half of your life. God promises to travel it with you if you allow Him to do so.

Love to you faithful friend~Rebecca
