Travelling Long Distance

Packing Bags Again…12 sleeps!
12Given that Larrie and I hail from two different countries, and from places that are about 12000 km/8000mi apart, across a massive expanse of water known as the Pacific Ocean, it is not surprising that the “LD” of our “LDR” will have a permanent place in our day to day

Every day, I ache about being away from my home country and culture and not being a part of daily life with my children and new baby granddaughter, or being close enough to visit my mum, sis, bros etc. Don’t ever underestimate the other ‘LDR’s in your life when contemplating such an up-ending, up-rooting move.

Anyway… joy of joys!!!
Larrie and I are travelling to Oz in just 12 sleeps!!! Hallelujah!
And for the first time, we are actually going to travel together! ( at least, one way) I am going to stay longer than he.

Music DownUnder
I am sure there will be music and singing but I don’t know all the details yet, so you’ll have to watch the calendar for whatever we may be doing in our southern jaunt. We do have a seniors gig for Sept 18, with our mate, Col Atkinson… this image is from late last year.

family music

Family Time, family time…and more family time.

Two of my beautiful sons are celebrating 26th and 29th birthdays, so we’ll be gathering at my mum’s in Sydney for that special occasion. I will O-Ding on everyone as much as possible!
This is from my sons’ birthday last year, at their dad’s, in Sydney. Four of my five gorgeous gifts from God… from left , Matt ( 26 on 15/9), Paulie ( 29 on 17/9), Parrish and Sarah “Possum”. Paul is a miracle, as he was confirmed dead by two doctors in the womb at 10 weeks after a widespread abruption in the placenta-it detached from the uterine wall. But God resurrected him!!! Hallelujah!

So, these are the plans. We have been keeping busy with singing at senior centres and the Cinema Grill in Alameda, doing CPR classes and for me, the odd blog and painting…AND growing our garden! Check out our tomatoes!

And it’s harvest time!

Next time I write, will likely be in Oz…can’t wait!!!
Blessings in the name of the Lord Jesus!
