Back again ...

Well … here I am .. back again …. And so soon too …. Maybe I really can do this on a regular basis …. We’ll see …. lol

My husband keeps a diary or journal as some call it … he has kept one for as long as I have known him … and long before that … I know when we packed our house up last time …. There were diaries dating back to 1975 … now that is a lot of history there … and one day … our children and grandchildren may read the lot of them .. I do know that when the kids were young he would do entries addressed to one or more of them … little personal messages just for them … these I consider very special cos he was not a ‘hands on’ sort of dad … he worked long days at hard jobs and never did have too much time for the kids … mind you … if you ask them they have no complaints … they love him unconditionally … He really is a special guy … and I have been very blessed .. and again I have gone totally off topic … just rambling I guess … maybe my blog should be called .. my ramblings .. haha … and maybe I can take a leaf out of his book and try to do an entry a day .. and really make this a recording of what my days are all about ...

In about 16 hours we will have been married 30 years …. Wow … that is a very long time … there been many ups and downs .. good and bad times … happy and sad .. busy and quiet times …. Times of plenty .. and many times of being broke .. but .. none when I ever felt unloved .. He is a good man … and a good dad … an excellent grand dad … and I know in time … he will be a fantastic great grand father … but for now … he is just the best husband and friend I could or would ever want …

He allows me just about any indulgence I can afford … and encourages me in all my endeavours … and loves me more than I deserve most days .. haha …

He lets me make a hell of a mess in the house with my quilting and stuff and really does not mind that the house might not get cleaned for a couple of weeks … and doesn’t complain too much if I get all caught up sewing or just chatting on the phone or in a chat room with my friends .. instead of cooking him a meal … he will settle for a sandwich or beans on toast … yep .. I am a lucky girl …

And I have been sewing … today I have made good progress on a little baby quilt for one of my siblings grandchildren …. Her baby is due in about 6 weeks … in fact there will be 4 babies born into the family before June … I have lost count on how many there are all together … but there really is a lot of us … I am one of 7 … and we are all married … with kids .. and many of them have had babies … and some of them have had children .. and now .. their babies are having babies … in the next few days I will try to work out how many of us there are … one of my sisters has 8 children and 14 grand kids … we have 6 children and 23 grandbabies … so yep … this is something for another day … haha …

I will be back tomorrow and will post some pics of the quilt I am making … I like it .. it is very bright and colourful … I am sure our Kayla will like it too …. She has no idea what she is having .. which is unusual these days … for some reason kids today have to know as soon as possible … I reckon it takes most of the fun out of it …

Anyway … I am really starting to babble now … I think I must be getting really tired … cos that is what I do when I am tired … babble and waffle on about absolutely nothing …. lol

So I shall say good night for now … and shall be back tomorrow …. With more ramblings I dare say …

Good night all … huge hugs … sleep tight … and sleep dreams
