Obviously still too early to let go

I`m up before the birds this morning as I can`t sleep...This "thing" in my ear drove me absolutely bananas last night....I kept Matt awake as well.....So definitely off to the doctors.... As for Daniel and his bike riding, here we were thinking everything was going along nicely but it wasn`t at all.... You see he didn`t come home straight away from school like he is supposed too.....By the time 5;30 arrived the panic started to kick in.... I don`t know what or why I rang the school but I did....Luckily Daniel`s teacher still happened to be there and I asked her if Daniel had gone to school that day.... Turns out he hadn`t and to make matters worse he didn`t attend yesterday either..... OMG!!!!! Now I was definitely worried.... I went around to this kids place that he rides to school with of a morning.....The step father after 5 minutes of standing at the door decides to answer it....He hadn`t seen Daniel (supposedly) that day.....So straight home on the phone to the police to put out a missing persons report "AGAIN".... He rocked up home half an hour later and did Matt and myself let rip, because naturally we were worried sick as only on the weekend we had a little girl around the corner nearly abducted..... We drilled him as to where he had been all day today and yesterday..... What makes me so furious is that he went to this young lads home and stayed there for the day....Now if that was Daniel`s friend and he came to our place on a school day I would be telling them to either get to school or go home.....But no, not these dicks, they let him stay there and not inform us of what has been going on ..... Then we find out yesterday he spent the day at this boy`s sister`s house.....God knows what they did there but today we will be finding out...I just can`t believe these sorts of people...Don`t they have brains....They can see the kid is in his school uniform which to me would indicate he is supposed to be at school..... Then we find out that the boy`s parents are smoking dope in front of Daniel.....What`s next shooting a needle up the arm????? These people may raise their children how they see fit but when it comes to my child or anyone else`s for that fact they should show some responsibility..... So today we will be speaking with the school and letting them know of the past events...I`ve asked that Daniel be punished for wagging school as now he has two days of work to catch up on..... In the meantime he will also be punished at home.... He has to learn that for every action there is a reaction.....

Every single eveningAs I'm lying here in bed,This tiny little PrayerKeeps running through my head:God bless all my familyWherever they may be,Keep them warm and safe from harmFor they're so close to me. And God, there is one more thingI wish that you could do;Hope you don't mind me asking,Please bless my computer too. Now I know that it's unusualTo Bless a motherboard,But listen just a secondWhile I explain it to you, Lord. You see, that little metal boxHolds more than odds and ends;Inside those small compartmentsRest so many of my friends. I know so much about themBy the kindness that they give,And this little scrap of metalTakes me in to where they live. By faith is how I know themMuch the same as you.We share in what life brings usAnd from that our friendships grew. Please take an extra minuteFrom your duties up above,To bless those in my address bookThat's filled with so much love. Wherever else this prayer may reachTo each and every friend,Bless each e-mail inboxAnd each person who hits 'send'. When you update your Heavenly listOn your own Great CD-ROM,Bless everyone who says this prayerSent up to Amen.

100 years young

It seems everyone in our family is having birthdays...Usually from May through to August....Matt`s grand daughter turns 3 tomorrow then we have 4 bithdays in August.... My great grandmother turns 100 in 2 weeks time....A very special birthday indeed....We have 5 generations of female first born in the family.....It consists of my great grandmother, her daughter(my nana), my mother, then comes me and then last but not least Krystal (my daughter).....Girls do dominate in our family..... I haven`t seen her in sometime now as she used to live in Melbourne but has recently packed up everything and come to live here in SA.... It was a big move and everyone was worried that it might do her more harm than good but she is a tough old bugga....She bought a lovely little cottage house on the river and she is thriving....Gets out and about in her front garden....I hope i`m as healthy and fit as she is if I ever get to her age.... There is going to be a big party for her but i`m unsure if we`ll be able to make it because Matt could be in hospital around about that time....But i`m sure she will understand.... It`s quiet on the home front today....Just Daniel and hubby home and they are both having an afternoon nap....I`ve just finished doing the housework so I think i`ll sit down and watch the footy...It was a good game to watch between the Cats and Hawks last night....A bit of a thriller and the Hawks certainly gave the Cats a run for their money....I still reckon they`ll be hard to beat this year....

Our newest addition to the family

We finally had some very happy news this morning....Matt`s daughter gave birth to a very healthy boy, Riley Matthew, weighing in at 10lb 11oz....Just a wee Pop was over the moon hearing of the birth but was in shock after hearing his weight....She has two other children and they were both big babies but nothing compared to this one.... She has declared there will be no more and i`m not the least bit surprised after the size of this boy.... An all natural birth with only a little gas to get her through....Pop reckons he would have been calling for any drug he could get his hands on....hahaha I held him and my god, my arms were aching after 10 minutes...I said she`ll have to go to a gym to build up her upper body He was very quiet the few hours we were there but very inquisitive of what was going on around him....
