Happy New Year!

Happy new year everyone. Yes I know it has been a long time between posts!!!!

The last time i posted something here on my blog was before Christmas.

Christmas 2009 for me was a difficult time for me - half of me was excited and thankful for everything that I am blessed with, and the other half was of very mixed emotions - sadness, anger etc in relation to the first christmas without my dad.

Not a day goes by where I do not think of him - sometimes to the point where I can not clear some of those last few hours with him from my mind! I feel so much for my dear Mum - she has lost her sole mate! I worry about her and find it hard not to take on her emotions when we talk on the phone. I love her so so much! I am so grateful to my dear husband, and thank god for my health and my two beautiful children every day.

Since 1st January 2009 I have now been at home for the longest time - last year I was travelling approx every 4 weeks! Combine this with a challenging pregnancy and the loss of dad it made for an interesting time. It has been so nice to not have to step on a plane!

I am loving the school holidays with Tucker - we have been doing painting and craft at home, going to the shops, having lunch and snacks at the coffee shops, lots of swimming and lots of reading!

Essie is growing up so much - he is still quite petite so we have nicknamed him Mr Small! he shares lots of beautiful smiles, rolls over and loves tummy time. He is also loving the fact that he can reach out and grab hold of things and give them a shake - with often a noise of some sort coming from one toy or another. He is actually a little sick at the moment - he is having tests on his bowel - we are hoping it is nothing too major!

I have returned to my training at the gym this week. The creche just reopened for the year on Monday and I have had two good workouts.

I have included a couple of photos of the boys from Christmas Eve. xxx
