Life Goes On

Now that I know that my Sister is going to be living near me my head is in a whirl, I cant sleep at night, plans , thoughts and suggestions are whirling around in my brain. On the 1st of January I made the statement that 2011 was going to be a great year, and since saying that the world has being going through some troubling times. Some right round the corner from me and some on the other side of the world. But I could stil not get rid of the idea that for me anyway, things were about to change.
Could this be it ??? could the difference be having my sister back in my life ?? I,m not sure but I cant get rid of the knot of excitement I,m feeling right now.

On the PF side of my life, I seem to have settled into a routine of working out my wages on a Thursday night and shuffling my money around on a Friday. I have not had any major financial emergencies so far this year, so I have not had to redo my budget other than to add on my layby payments for my bedding and pots. I have opted to pay the minimum amount on these purchases weekly. I figure I have waited 20 something years for new pots so a couple more months wont make much difference.
The Christmas present my Daughter gave to her Dad and I is finally going to get used on Tuesday night, when we will get all dressed up and go out for a free swanky meal. I love eating dishes I would never attempt at home.
And talking about dishes, I made out a menu which covered dinners this week, so no scratching my head and wondering what on earth to eat, I involved MIL and The Foxx in my decisions so we are all happy and everyone gets at least one favourite dish a week. And leftovers are being put aside for a Friday when it,s every man for himself and it,s first to the freezer scores the dish they prefer. It,s only week one but so far so good.

I have been a little slack commenting on your blogs, please I do try and find the time to get online every night after tea, but this week life just seems to be getting in the way. MIL has been a little under the weather, and I have been spending more time sitting chatting to her. My depression has been coming and going in waves, although that now seems to be back under control. And after getting a bone marrow test done The Foxx has 33% cancer cells, so his Leukemia, is back with a vengeance and the Chemo drugs he has to take have been knocking him around quite a bit.
I think we need this holiday big style !!!!!!!!


  1. I am so excited for you that you will have your sister near!

  2. Despite all these issues, your still smiling. Its an inspiration to all of us. Debt 2 looks like it's almost gone and what a relief that will be for you!

  3. I'm glad that your sister is moving closer, and I'll say a little prayer for your hubby. I think you should join the "hand made challenge"... If you take good photos you could send those to some one!

  4. thats good that your sister will be closer, hope you get to take a bit of break soon, a holiday sounds lovely!

  5. I have two brothers living in the same city as me but we don't see each other too much. Sisters are different - mine both live a four hour drive away so I don't see them often but when I do we have so much to talk about and love going out yardsaling together, or going for coffee, or going to the thrift shop or checking out the free books that the library is always giving away. So I am happy for you that you will soon have your sister closeby - I think that will make a big difference in your life.
    How many days til your holiday??? (NOT MANY!!:)

  6. How lovely for you that your sister is moving closer..and good job on the menu planning!

  7. You do sound busy, and that is a good thing. I am excited that your sister will be moving closer to you, that will be wonderful for you. And yes, your break will be a nice reprieve for both you and your hubs.
