Greetings to all my readers

It's 9.30pm on Christmas Eve here in Australia. The temperature is still very warm and the forecast for tomorrow is 40 degrees. My daughter, Ruth and her boyfriend, Brendan, as well as my sister have come to spend Christmas with me. We cooled down this afternoon by going for a swim in the dam. Ruth has cooked a yummy dish of pasta and garlic prawns for a meal and we are now relaxing and feel mellow. So tonight I feel at peace and would like to wish you all a joyful and peaceful time over the Christmas holiday. Thank you for all your comments throughout the year and I hope that 2008 is a better year for me and for you.

Many sad things

Alot of sad things have happened in my life over the past few months. The breakup of my 23yr marriage has completely devastated me. The betrayal of my trusted partner has been too much to bear.
Recently I attended the memorial service of a friend that was diagnosed with cancer in August and passed away in October. He was a talented horseman and furniture maker. Then one of my suppliers that I visit weekly suddenly died. Yesterday when I returned home from the Sunday market I found that my property had been broken into. I have had a number of items stolen and I have just spent the afternoon with the police who have fingerprinted various items. I feel very sad and alone.
