Again, despite my promises, both to myself and the two or so readers I have left here, I have been quiet on the blogging front. Facebook has a way of sneaking up and taking over if you are not careful. I signed up with FB quite some time ago, mainly to see what the fuss was about...I fought it despite numerous friend requests and was then contacted by people from my "past"...enough to pique my curiousity again. I do like the immediacy of it, it's different to blogging, which is for me a longer and more thoughtful process, but still complementary somehow.

I'm yet to do Twitter...I just don't get it and don't think I ever will.

Was looking for a previous post on my blog yesterday and happened across a post/award which asked me to list the things that make me happy. I thought I'd link it here and ask again...

What Makes You Happy...??

In recent times I have been feeling very content and full with life here...nothing has perceptibly changed so I'm not sure what has brought this on but if I really think about it the following works for me...
  • Life has been busy with kids sporting activities, school & friends...
  • John & I have spent more time alone of late, he also seems very content too...
  • Matilda & Myles are (for the most part) very easy teenagers...watching the adults that are emerging is an endless source of fascination to me...
  • I have applied to begin a Bachelor of Midwifery at UQ (University of Queensland)...
  • Our triplet grandchildren are 6 months old today and incredibly healthy and happy...as are their Mum, Dad & Brothers...
  • I'm 52 kilos (114lbs for my US friends) lighter than this time last year...
  • My kidney disease/function is resolving and my energy levels are improving...I haven't had a hospital visit in almost 4 months...
It's all good really...no, it's better than good, much better.

If you get a chance please pay a visit to Kel's Blog Taurus Rising. She has a great giveaway happening at the moment. Her new business The Ethicurean sells beautiful soft mesh and gauze fabric bags to carry your market produce home and let it breathe in...a wonderful way to do away with plastic...they are very stylish too. I'm hoping to be one of the lucky ones but am intending to purchase in the near future too. There aren't many entries at this point in time so your chances are good...winners announced tomorrow.

Might be time for a coffee now...lazy Sundays are just divine.
