When we exchanged rings, we hoped our family of two would grow.
It has, into a family of 4. We're just split in half.
Two of us walk the Earth while two of us fly in Heaven.

CYG Day 13

Day 13 - season

Julia was born in Spring. Evan was born in Winter. In Oz, there's not much difference between the two. Temps are a bit cooler in winter, the days are bright and sunny. I don't like bright and sunny days, I like dark stormy rainy days.

CYG Day 12

Day 12 - Music

We had a variety of music chosen for Evan's funeral. Eskimo Joe, hymns, Jesus Loves Me...

My favorite was this haunting and beautiful piece, U2's October being played live by a pianist from our church. I believe it's the song we walked into the sanctuary to for his service.

We buried him first then had a full proper service at our church. Some days I get sad when October comes on, some days I'm happy and smile knowing our lil dude had a rock star send off!

CYG Day 11

Day 11 - "Altar".

Not an altar, an altar is in church. Where you get married.

This is the babies nursery, still set up after we came home without Evan

InstaFriday again

Let's see, what did I get up to this week?

Lots of stuff promoting my business.
I burned myself while making dinner. OWWWWWWWW!
Sunday afternoon. 3 games of rugby league. This calls for sausage rolls!
This never ceases to amuse me.
Labor Day = family bbq dinner at Mum and Dad's. Glenn made beer marinated ribs.
It felt like a side braid kind of day.
I won a design prize for my team Christmas Craft contest!
Happy mail = happy me.
Easy quick dinner. Sausages, potato bake, and bread. Yum.
My shoes are shot. Like toooooooooootally shot. In desperate need of new ones. I found some! Good bye old shoes!
Pretty comfy new kicks. :D
If you're wondering what the kits are on my feed, this is what one looks like. Everything needed to complete 3 cards (except the adhesive).
Church morning tea. Late night baking. Raisin bran bars/muffins. Cream cheese cinnamon chip icing. YUMZ.
New charm on my Julia Rose necklace. :)

That was my week.

What have you been up to?

World Mental Health Day

Mental health is nothing to sneeze at.

Grief takes its toll on the mind, especially when both my children were born and died within 18 months of eachother! Talk about a double whammy! I've not felt the need to go see a shrink of any sort, however for those that are starting to really doubt their sanity, there's absolutely NO shame in seeking and getting the help that you need. No shame!

October 10, World Mental Health Day. Thanks to the Mummy & the Minx for posting about this.
