Celebrate Good Times, C'Mon

    Recommended Posts

    Guest Libby1971

    As I sit at my computer with a distinct boogie woogie wiggle thing going on (Kool and the Gang, sigh, where art thou now?), I am struck that today, despite it's chaos, and brush with death (you try driving in rush hour in Adelaide - they are lunatics), I am content.

     

    I have a new kitchen.

    The kids aren't fighting - I don't think they are talking to each other but at least it's quiet.

    The OH hoovered today.

    The dog is asleep.

     

    And I saw 3 rainbows today, which were beautiful.

     

    So now, think of something that is right in your world and celebrate it.

    Ooooh, I remember those days! You most definitely deserve a lovely drink tonight, maybe you'll sleep through it if the poor mite cries again tonight!

     

    My own personal bright spot is going out for a lovely meal with my husband and kids tomorrow night - so don't have to cook and wash up! Yippee! OK, it's a small thing but it makes me happy - and based on tonight's culinary disaster it will make my family happy as well!!!:biglaugh::biglaugh: You know, I really shouldn't be allowed in the kitchen...

    Hi everyone

     

    I have something to celebrate, don't know where to start.

     

    Two weeks ago got an offer on my house, which is going through buyer wants to be in

    first week October, survey done, mortgage offer in place

     

    My hubby is an air conditioning engineer, applied for a job from career one, two days later the company phoned him at 6 in the morning for an interview two days later they offered him the job.

     

    So I really feel really privileged to be in this position. Fingers crossed we will be flying out around the 15th October.

     

    Can't believe its all happening, since our visa was granted March we have had so many highs and lows its been awful but not once did I ever think 'lets forget it' and stay here.

     

    Thoses waiting, stay in there it will happen.

     

    Dawn

    Hello everyone,

    I am celebrating the birth of my first grandson - he is beautiful and I saw and held him for the first time yesterday. His name is Charlie David Miller Burns and I am besotted! This is making it so much harder to emigrate to Adelaide next Saturday but I am going to make the most of the next week and enjoy the soft skin, the perfect features and that lovely new baby smell,

    Lovely news Cazzie :wubclub:

    My Dad says being a grandparent is the best revenge he can have on his children:biglaugh:

    Hope you enjoy every minute, and think of all the amazing things you can show Charlie in Oz

    Thank you Jacqui. Yes, I will be able to webcam and watch his progress and hopefully as he gets older, he will think it's exciting to have a nana in Australia! I have to say, it IS an amazing thing when our own children suddenly become grown up enough to have children of their own! It really brings home the whole 'circle of life' thing. I am also amazed at how attached I feel to this newborn baby - incredible, but lovely.
