Happy birthday Jamie, he's four today! He's still in Korea and will celebrate his birthday with his mum, Korean grandma, aunties, uncles and friends. They'll be back home on Friday so we'll have another birthday then. There was a time when I never thought about being a grandmother. Now I can't imagine life without my two precious grandsons.
This is him at the airport with his robot bag full of little toys.
I seem to be all over the place at the moment. Each task I carry out is calm and considered but I go from one to the other so frequently, it makes my head spin at times and I have to stop and think about what I'm doing. All the extra work is caused by my book writing and a photo shoot for the book we're having here at home soon. Hanno is painting the front verandah, something we've been going to do for years, and this is the perfect reason to actually do it. I am writing every day with a deadline every two weeks and in between the writing sessions I've been decluttering my wardrobe (again) and chest of drawers (again), finishing off some knitting, cooking, baking, tidying and reorganising cupboards.
Baked this week - orange and whiskey marmalade jam drops.
I'm thankful that the new forum has settled down well and is working like a charm. We even have a little chat place there so we have live chatting happening too. I'm blogging as much as I can and happy for the chance to do it because it always seems to clear my head and gets me focused again. It reminds me too that you're all out there, we're all in the same boat, that life is tough sometimes, and that the tough times always give way to something better.
