31/12/2010 New Years Eve

It’s a beautiful hot, sunny day, a day to swim in the pool, chill and relax with a nice G&T ice & lemon! Yummy! Mike’s home made sausage rolls with apple sauce, James smiling face beaming with joy as he looks forward to jumping in the pool at midnight!

Another year passed and a new one ahead, thank you to everyone this year for friendship, words of wisdom and for just being there whenever someone was needed for love and support through those tough times and those of joy and happiness!

Have a fantastic New Year everyone and look forward to keeping in touch with more updates in 2011:)

Christmas 2010

A wonderful Christmas this year, it’s our 2nd one in our dream home. The weather is certainly better than last Christmas and today (29 Dec.) is forecast 29 degrees, a beautiful crisp, sunny morning. Today will start with breakfast on the patio, fresh fruits, and maybe even a champagne breakfast, what the hell it’s holidays, so why not!!! 🙂

Later a cycle ride around the local estate and then a dip in the pool. Tomorrow we have a trip planned to the coast to do a spot of fishing and explore the scenery along the beautiful local coastline. Bliss!

James and Mike are still sleeping, I’m just updating my new iPod touch with some podcasts and audio books. Mike has been following the cricket and is enjoying the English slaughtering the Aussies! He is off to the Ashes game in Sydney on the 04 Jan. However it looks like it will be all over by then! 🙂

Spoke with Robbie on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in UK. He has certainly moved on with his life over these past months and is now well and truly standing on his own two feet, working full time, paying his way and supporting himself in his own place and in a loving relationship with his girlfriend. I am so proud to see this for him and to see him happy! 🙂

The scalextrix is out (boys toys), we palyed Ker-Plunk last night, James and Mike have finished building the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle and I’ve finally finished making and sewing the sunbed covers and pillows (must take a photo of them too!)

Anyway time for a cuppa! Catch up with more updates over the next few days/weeks/months.

Take care and all the very best for the New Year 2011! xxx:)

A New Year 2011 – Fitness regime

Well, I’ve decided to make it happen! The New Year 2011 will see a new and fitter me! A new fitness regime to start 1st Jan. 2011. A target to shed some pounds before my visit back to UK in 2012, so 12 months to make a difference!

Bicycle rides, Wii fit each morning and local walks. That’s for starters!

I must also watch the intake of wine, now that will be a tough one! 😦
