Whilst i don’t usually post very personal things on my blog, this time i am going to. Mainly cos it affects me as a whole and something i will look back on in 6-12 months time and either say it was the right choice, or a very big mistake.

What I’m talking about is my marriage situation. Craig and I are currently separated. This came as a huge shock to both our friends and family. I wont post details, but i will say it was myself who asked for the break. I needed to be on my own (well add 3 kids and 3 cats into the mix).

So far so good. I’m handling it well. i have my days with the kids where i think its all to hard, but i plough on and get through the day and night. The kids are slowly adjusting to the change of not having daddy here (who is staying with Cheyne at the moment and seeking a rental). He comes to visit for family dinner night on a Wednesday, and sees them 1-2 times through the week in the day time if he is in the area or needs to drop round for something.

I have a lot to think about over the coming months, and i hope i can get the right choice made!

That’s all i wish to post about right now 🙂


Miss Chelsea Rose!

Happy Birthday sweetheart, you are the light of our eyes and  make our hearts melt (and tempers rise!) every day. You are growing into such a beautiful little lady and we cherish every moment we have with you.

Have a wonderful day Princess 🙂

Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and civilians in times of war, specifically since the First World War. This day, or alternative dates, are also recognised as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries.

Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918, as the major hostilities of World War I were formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month” of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice. (Note that “at the 11th hour”, refers to the passing of the 11th hour, or 11:00 am.)

The red poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem In Flanders Fields. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilt in the war.

Sadly yesterday one of my gorgeous friends found out devastating news. She was to be a bit over 10 weeks pregnant when bleeding began. Sunday night she went to the hospital where blood and an internal were done, returned great results. Yesterday she had a scan.

Its with much sadness that she was informed her baby had passed away 3 weeks ago.

Having been through Melanae’s loss, i knew exactly the pain (physically and emotionally), the heart ache and the ‘whys’ that would be running through her mind right now. I am there to support her, 2 states apart, but never more then a phone call or MSN chat away.

Deb, you’re a strong lady and im so sorry for your loss. May your precious angel forever look over you and your family forever. She is in the skies above playing with Melanae and all the other angel babies. RIP Ruby Rose you will always hold a special place in mummies heart.


Lilypie Fourth Birthday tickers


Well last night Craig took me our for a post birthday night out. We hired Anita to watch the kids and around 7pm we left home. First stop was Crown Casino where we had dinner at Spice Temple. O M F G….the food was to die for. Was just soooooo yummy!! Of course $140 later we left. I was beginning to have really bad pains and wasn’t sure i was going to make it to our next fun venue. After a few trips the the loo and the feeling of wanting to spew, i was right again 🙂

So we got a taxi and headed to…. The Men’s Gallery !! Wow is all I’ll say. I didn’t think I’d be able to walk in, but I’m glad I did. Its an experience that’s for sure, and so much fun. The chicky babes were so HOT HOT HOT. I’d do anything for a body like them. Craig paid a gorgeous girl, Allegra, to do a little show for me. She was so pretty, but i had no idea where to look LOL 🙂

Around midnight we headed back to Crown, grabbed a coffee and some Krispy Kreme donuts and headed home!

Was the best night out in a long time..and a very nice birthday present off Craig!


Its been a bit doom and gloom on my blog the past week, but sadly this is another gloomy post.

On this date 7 years ago, a day after i turned 21, i was at work. I remember being in the cool room doing up an order for the manager. I recall hearing over the PA ‘Kim Dent can you come to the office please, Kim Dent to the office‘. I didn’t go, i kept working cos i really HAD to get the orders done before 8am. Again my name was called over the PA, only this time it was to come immediately. So off i went upstairs to see my manager holding the phone. It was a call for me on Line 2. My manager stayed…

Me: Hello

Mum: (through broken tears) Its only me, Uncle Norm has died

Me: (Already fighting tears apon hearing mum crying) What????

Mum: He died this morning

Me: How, where, nooooooo

Mum: In the paddock, council workers found him in his car.

Me: Noo he cant be

The rest of the call is history, but i will never forget mum telling me Uncle Norm was gone. He was never coming back. No one seen this coming. No one wanted to believe he had died.

I spent the rest of the morning in the tea room sobbing, staff walking past me not knowing what to say or why i was crying like a mad women.  James drove me home. I cried the whole way. How could this have happened. The day before i was celebrating my 21st, and that day i was grieving the loss of an Uncle. He had died of a heart attack. Heart problems are common in dad’s family, so it was of no  surprise it’s what took his life in the end.

Much like yesterday, i was celebrating my 28th, and at the same time yet another uncle was being buried 🙁

My other memory, again sad, was receiving a card in the mail. I opened it so excitedly, only to end in tears. It was from uncle Norm. He had posted it, more then likely, the day before he passed away.

So today i remember the past. The loss of my beloved Uncle Norm. May he now be running around with his brother Vin and watching over us everyday 🙂


ME!!!

Today marked a celebration of birth and death. As Uncle Vin was laid to rest, i turned 28. It seems wrong to say ‘Happy’ Birthday when its such a sad day, but i know he wouldn’t want me to be upset and down.

Kathy + family gave me $200 to spend…and spend i did. Autograph have a sale on right now so i picked up a new top, shorts and a dress. Then in Kmart i got some new shoes, sunnies and 2 bras!! Good bargain shopper i am 🙂

Chelsea made me a lovely card at school. Tonight we all went to Pancake Palour….BIG mistake. Im now ready for bed. Sucks being old 😛


Today Uncle Vin was laid to rest. I didnt attend the funeral, but i was there in spirit. Dad said the casket was nice and had the most beautiful flowers on top.

Darielle was able to make the funeral. Last week she had a fall and broke her arm, wrist and leg. Luckily Patient transport was able to take her to and from the funeral.

May you forever live on Uncle Vin, you are now at peace and with your beloved wife
