there might be a short break in transmission . . .
A few glitches in the routine here - starting with the freaky lighting in the photos i took this morning of the children in casual clothes for school (last day of term). Not sure what was going on with the flash, call them 'artistic' shots but the camera is fine now??
I know, nothing says casual dress as much as a LV handbag & massive Summer Blossom hair flower in the 3rd grade!!
Exciting news, my husband will be home soon, ahhhhh, the relief, excitement & pure joy i feel is palpable. I'm desperately sorry for the families who will not have their soldiers coming home, i can't imagine the hole in their lives. We'll head to the War Memorial soon to put poppies by their names.
Our children don't actually know just how soon their papa is coming home, he likes to surprise them. They spend weeks in advance making cards & writing lists of things to tell their daddy about what he's missed over the past 9 months, like sports ribbons, birthday gifts, art, awards etc.
I found my eldest daughter working on this card the other night . . . it says father in every language she could find on the internet, then a heart felt message. I think it's her way of saying that it's OK that he chose a career that takes him away from us, but she still misses him desperately & loves him deeply.
On a final note, handsome soldier has a grandmother who is on her death bed, so we're basically waiting for a phone call with the news & will head to Sydney. My darling husband has been to10 funerals (ramp ceremonies) since June & i think with his grandmother passing, it will allow him to let out all the tension, anguish, sorrow & grief he's been holding in, during this war deployment, plus how much he misses his mother.
So i'll be back when i can, have happy school holidays, mine will be an emotional roller coaster but we'll get through it all as a family.
Anyone else loving LOVING the new Australian drama comedy series Off Spring?? Am i the only one so desperate for Nina & Chris to get together it makes me cry?? Love Posie
