My BBrother has had to go off to work today, so I have some time on my hands.
I have been reading up on my favourite blog sites, & trying hard to leave some commets.
Challenged as I am, I cant work out how to use this Laptop computer, & I see my email inbox is full, & I cant seem to empty it! It is rather frustrating, & I am surprised that this computer seems so different to my old dinosaur at home!
Tomorrow I am being taken out for the day, by BFJ,& her Partner B. We will be travelling North to visit my eldest son & so I am very excited about that. We have not seen each other for some years now, & I cant wait to see him. I have never visited the city where he lives now, so it will be a very busy day.
I have had such a great time so far, & realise just how much I miss seeing all my wonderful rellies. I have been to visit my birthplace, & we have laid our mother's Ashes to rest, at her parents graves.
It was very moving, & even though it has been 9 years since her passing, it was still a sad time. I think my brother will miss having her ashes tucked away in his wardrobe!! But our mother had threatened him not to keep them, or she would haunt him! I am sure she didnt mind 'staying' in his warm & loving home.
I see on the news & other blogs that the weather has been atrociously hot in Oz, & the bushfires have been raging. How beautiful it is over here, & the green makes my heart ache, it is all so beautiful.
I have been very remiss about taking scenic photos, I have been so busy taking pics of my family, so I will have to really try to get some of the breathtaking greens, & the gorgeous roses! Flowers of all types seem to be so fresh & happy here. I had forgotten how dazzlibngly green & jewellike the countryside looks.
The weather has been perfect, even though it has rauined quite often, it has never been on my 'parade' & everything looks so fresh after the showers. Auckland is a very 'moody' city, weatherwise, & usually has 4 (or even 5!!) seasons in one day.
I must admit I am missing my "Aussie" family & will be glad to see them again. One of my lovely cousins has a little dog & he very obligingly let me cuddle him close.
We seem to have travelled such a long way & visited so many varied family members, I am reeling from it all, & will have to sort out my memories & blog about the hilarious things we have seen & done, once I get home again.
I spoke with GOM yesterday, & he tells me he is missing me too, & says the dogs are waitig for my return.
