It’s official – Sandy is retiring!!

I am officially retiring on 8 July 2011 and,  as I am still on holidays until then, I don’t actually have to go back to work!! Yaaayyy!!  Richard will make a decision after he has finished doing the end of financial year stuff at his work.  I am really looking forward to being able to potter around, do some scrapbooking, go shopping etc. and, when Richard does retire, spending time with him and planning some more adventures, as well as continuing to spend time with our kids and spoiling our grandkids!

I will be heading off to Leeton for a couple of weeks shortly – unfortunately, my beautiful Mum is no longer able to look after herself at home anymore, even with my amazing sister, Maria’s help and home help, so she has decided to leave her much-loved home and move into a nursing home.  So, as soon as I get the call to say that the paperwork is all sorted and everything is approved, I will be heading off to Leeton to help Maria move Mum into the nursing home and pack up Mum’s house.  Being retired means that I can come and go as I please and I don’t have to worry about what is happening at work and whether or not I can get away – yippeee!

So, I have finished “practising for retirement”, bring it on!!!

    Hi Lovely neighbours,
    It looks like you are all having a wonderful time. It reminds me so much when we went to choose our own Christmas tree (in Denmark). My how things are different here. We now have our artificial tree on the deck outside as it is too warm to be inside. All is well in cozy Thomas St. We had a Christmas party last Friday night at Rita and Bill’s. Of course we brought the sausages. It was great to get to know the neighbours. The kids went swimming in the pool and the very next say at 4pm most of us met at the front and went for a 90minute walk up in White Hill. I hope that becomes a regular occurance. The weather stillcan’t decide if it want’s to stay in Spring or Summer mode. I also haven’t noticed the pink flowers as yet but will let you know when they have blossomed.Ella has grown so much. It’s going to be so much fun with a little cherub in the clan. Say hi to the family. Talk soon again.
