Where has the time gone to? I haven't been on here in ages as I have been so busy with school and business.Another 3 weeks of marking and reports and then I will be done with marking and reports this year. Still lessons to teach and year 12 to work with.

Since I last wrote so many good and sad things have happened.

1. My dear friend Melba lost her health battle and her funeral was last Wednesday 8th November. I just loved this lady and I know I will always miss her. Some people come into your lives and touch a special place in your heart and Melba was one of those people.She was a great scrapbooking friend and camps and crops will never be the same again. I have known Melba for 6 years now and wish I had of had more time with her. But as the saying goes " better to have had her for a short time in my life than not at all."Well this is my saying.

2. The day after the funeral was the anniversary of another dear friend of mine Dave's death. Dave had been in my life for over 20 years and he was the husband of a dear friend of mine Ros who used to be my English penfriend but they both immigrated here in 1988. Ros and I have been friends for 43 years. I felt more sad a year after Dave's death than I did last year. I think this was because last year it was a relief that he was no longer in pain and battling. I miss his wit and sense of humour and our long chats.
Life is so difficult.

3.We did a fantstic Camp at Wiseman's ferry and met some great people. Have done crop days down at Nowra,Pecky's and Melanie's Church. All of which were great fun.

Lets hope I don't leave it so long before I write again.
