Crikey .... I sure hope you remember me!! It wasn't my fault I disappeared. It wasn't really Mum's fault either. Things just got a bit on top of us here for a while. I wont go into all the boring details all at once. I'll spread 'em out a bit. BUT
... I guess I do need to explain my hasty departure. Mum got some bad news from her eye Doctor and he said she had to limit her computer use for a while. Now Mum being Mum couldn't bring herself to look at my blog and all YOUR
blogs without having something to say so she made the decision to just STOP!!
She went (and made me go) COLD TURKEY!!
Now I don't mind a bit of cold turkey. Matter of fact I don't mind a bit of hot turkey either. Fair dinkum ..... I'll take it raw if necessary ... but the cold turkey Mum was talking about wasn't the kind of cold turkey I'm into. So I've got a great big apology to make on Mum's behalf. SORRY, SORRY, SORRY
for making you worry. When we finally got to have a bit of a squiz at all your blogs we saw that a lot of you had been to my last blog and left comments as to where we were and if we were alright. OMD!!
Did Mum EVER
feel bad. So sorry, sorry, sorry again AND AGAIN!!!!!!!!
Madi and Mom (you kept checking on me), Bev Green, Zoe (oh Zoe ..... I've missed those beautiful eyes), Lord Shilo and Lady Shasta (your back!!!!! How good is that), Finley (you found me on facebook and you came back I don't know how many times to check on me), Chester and Joey (I see your Mom's been working real hard), Milton and Mr Stubbs .... oh so many of you. Thankyou for your concern. It's going to take me a while to catch up on all your news. Mum still can't be on the computer for too long. She's had an operation on one eye and is booked in for March next year for the other and they're keeping a close watch on her major problem which is macular degeneration but they are making big inroads into that these days. I see our dear friend Goose has sent a new Buddy to Michelle. Oh so much to catch up on. I've missed you all sooooooooo much. I mightn't be commenting as much for a while yet but please know that I will be there checking everything out. Crikey ..... did I see something about a wedding in Blogville?? Murphy and Ruby???????? How exciting is that????? Oh ...... and Yam Aunty is coming to see me, NEXT MONDAY
, if all goes well. That's awful exciting too, aye?? My first Blogville mate in the flesh.
Crikey so much has happened I don't know where to begin but I'll leave you today with this little bit of very sad news. We lost, after a very trying and difficult 3 months, my dear Nan on the 4th November at 8.30pm. The day after the Mebourne cup. She always enjoyed the Melbourne cup so she couldn't go before then, aye?? It's her birthday today
. She would have been 97. It's still hard for Mum to talk about. Nan may have been very old and lived a good, long life but it's still hard, aye?? Mum never knew her Dad. He died when she was 2 so although she has a sister, who she loves dearly, she is feeling a bit lost. Her Mum was ALWAYS
there for her and now she's gone. OMD
she loved that woman. Mum's are very special people, aye??
|She sure was a cute baby, aye??|
|That's my Mum on the right. |
|lookin' good Nan!!|
|Yep I loved her too!!|
|This was the last photo taken before she got REAL sick. |
|And this is the last photo Mum took. She wished she took more!! |
S'pose I have to say SORRY
again. My first post in months and I end it on a sad note. I promise they'll get happier from now on. I do have a few draft posts half done from ages ago so I'll get them fixed up and ready to go and I do have two of the little girls birthdays to tell you about.
Crikey I sure hope you remember me
Wanna run ... love, Charlie.
