|07:50 pm - Just to let you know....|
I will be closing this down very soon as I dont use it any more. For those of you who are interested in keeping in touch, I am on facebook, so drop me an email if you want to be added as a friend (I wont put it on here as, facebook has my proper, full name and this is open for anyone to read)
Life has been great and still is, been married for over a year and still as in love as ever, and now we have an added member of the family who was born on 31st October weighing 7lb 6oz. His name is Lucas and he is gorgeous. He is very content and sleeps almost through the night. J is the happiest man on Earth and the best father anyone could ask for.
Yeh, life is great. I hope it is for you all to, and have a great Christmas, I know we will!
Meet Lucas. This is my Angel at 1 day.
And this is when he was 3 weeks old.
I have more, and I may post them on here before I close this down.

|08:34 pm - helllloooooooooooo|
So, Ive forgotten to update in a loooong while.....(and Ive written all this already and the damn Lj freaked and deleted. It probably didnt recognise me)
So, how is life going with everyone?
Life with me is great, I cant believe that its coming up for our first wedding anniversary in October. Its seems like yesterday. AND if that wasnt enough, I will be having a baby in October too! I'm keeping well and although I dont feel any kicking as such, I feel lots of movement and its amazing. I am loving every minute of being pregnant. Obviously J is like a kid himself atm lol.
I have decided that hopefully, I will take a year off work, then go part time. I will be looking for a job in another school as it is time for a change. I am really not enjoying my workplace. Ive been feelng like this for about a year and was looking for another job before I fell pregnant. I still love my job with a passion though.
We are still going to move to Canada.....well.....thats the plan for now, when the baby is about 3. However, Mags and her husband have been looking into moving to Australia, so if they go there, then we might have to change our plans lol.
I will sign off for now and hope that life is treating you all as well as it is treating me.

|10:03 pm - He's out!|
My brother was given a day pass for the evening reception. He had been in hospital 10 weeks, had countless scans, tests and a mild form of the flesh eating bug. But, they let him out for that night, and it did him the world of good. So much so, that when he went back on the Sunday, the Doctors were so pleased with him that they let him out on Tuesday! YAY.
The reception was great, the hotel room just amazing and they even played my favourite 80's song. What more could a girl ask for? Well, I could ask for my husband's brother not to be a fanny and bring his helicopter, and park it on the grass....but hey, it was funny and he knows I mean it all in fun...
I have my first ever nativity play tomorrow and Im probably more nervous than the kids. Im sure they will be fine though.
Have a Merry Christmas everyone and I hope to see your New Year's resolutions up there along with mine!

And even when life doesn't go your way, you always eventually turn things around.
I will update soon and comment on other peoples Lj, what can I say? Im a slacker...now if they had a quiz for that....Id be too lazy to do it....

|09:41 pm - So, this is what its like to be married,.,,,|
And I love it!
Thanks to everyone who sent kind wishes. The day was just brilliant. I couldnt have asked for more. Family, friends and alcohol, along with a brilliant hotel, great weather and an excellent holiday.
I always said, if my dad couldnt walk me down the isle (in this case, the hotel lobby), no one would. At the last minute, I opted to get my dad's favourite song played - Willie Neilson, Cant Live, If living Is Without You. It made me feel closer to him, like he was walking with me. The whole day was amazing. The photographer was ace, I will post a few of my favourites, but believe me, there are so many to choose from.
DD was there, and fell in love with my pal, awwwww who knew? She met the crowd and had a good time. There is nothing more to say really. It was just the best day of my life, and I get to do it all again at an evening reception on Dec 15th. This time I get my first dance, and my niece gets to dance with the best man...who she has a crush on (but she forgives you Di) Married life is great, Ive been out for a meal, had breakfast in bed, baths run for me and just general pampering.
Im lucky, I married my best mate, my soul mate. He knows how to make me laugh, how to cheer me up when I am down and how to make me feel the most special person on earth....Oh God Im gushing.....I will stop now.
Other news is my brother, he lost the pancreas and has been in hospital a lot longer than expected. I was really shocked when we went to see him last week. However, he is in the best possible care, and I just hope he gets out soon. Fingers crossed.
I could write more about this and that and everything that has happened, but I wont. Im happy and life is good, the icing on the cake would be my brother getting released from hospital this week.
Ok, let me try to upload these pics. ....

|10:36 pm - Hey! Ive remembered I have one of these!|
So, life has been great and I finally remembered that I need to actually up date this every now and then. We leave for Cyprus 2 weeks today! I think I am organised, I only need to get a necklace for me and the bridesmaids. We (me and J) went shopping today, and he got the rest of his stuff. I cant believe that I will be married in like 3 weeks! Its gonna be so much fun, all the family will be there and the best news ever is that my brother got a transplant on Monday!
Chris is doing very well and he looks 100 times better than he did before, he even has colour in his cheeks. He wont even be a diabetic anymore, which means, for the 1st time in 20 odd years, he wont have to inject himself anymore. I thank God and the family of the poor person who lost their life, we all do, and, in time, we are allowed to write a letter to them. Trust me, I will. That selfless person who lost their life helped my brother get his life back.
You know? I think organ donation should be compulsary. Lets face it, when you die, thats it, so all organs should go to help those who are still living. I get so annoyed that, even though I have a donor card, J (not that he ever would) can contest it! How mad is that?
Anyway, I was gonna type about me wedding and the fact that DD will be with us, but Im just so happy my brother has got another chance in life that everything else is unimportant.
I will up date you on his progress. I hope all is well with everyone *hug*

|10:21 pm - HP and the Deathly Hallows - no spoilers|
So, I queued up in Asda at midnight for my book - well I went early with my mate. It has to be done, I love waiting for the new book, the atmosphere, the people, the excitement of it all.....ok maybe I should get out more....
I got my book and did what I always do with every book I own, read the last page first in the store, much to the utter shock of people standing around. J wanted to take me out for lunch on the Saturday but I so wanted to read my book so I packed him off to his mates house, much to his amusement. I spent the whole day and night reading, I just couldnt put it down. I loved it!
There I was on the couch, drink in one hand, popcorn in the other and my book. It gave me vivid flash backs of America, where I first got hooked on HP. I guess now it might be time to go back and read them all again. Thats what I love about the holidays, time to chill and read. I never get that chance in school time, well not to read fiction books anyway.
I am off to Spain in late August, a sneaky wee trip with the girls from work, its only 4 days, but that will be the longest Ive been away from J. It will be hilarious, but Im gonna miss him like crazy....yeh Im totally loved up, or as my pals say....sad
Anyway, Im off for now, away to get J's nieces dress fitted tomorrow, she is the flower girl....awwwww

|10:42 pm - Harry Potter Mania|
So, after waiting an eternity, finally we went to see HP and the Order of the Phoenix. We had the tickets booked for ages. J didnt want to go, its not his thing, but me, my nieces and some friends went, and I have to say, it was bloody brilliant. I was worried because the book was so detailed and you just knew the film would have to make comprises. However, what I didnt like was the fact that details were changed, dramatically, and other details, could so easily have been shown. Yeh, I know, Im too much of a fan. But how difficult is it to get an address right? And why have Cho as the person who gave away the room of requirements?
Anyway, that aside, it was ace, and I cant wait for the final book. Its out next week, and me and Mags are going at midnight yet again to get our copy. It has to be done.
Other news, Im getting primary three next term! Thats, like, babies, I mean, they are touchy feely and age 7 ish. The youngest I taught unless you count the stint I did in California when I had to teach second grade for a week - which I loved. Im soooo looking forward to it, yet I have to admit, I am a lil nervous. The good thing is, there is a lot of people who will help me out if I need it.
Nothing much else going on, thats the 1st week of my holidays gone and I spent most of it in my class or sorting through paperwork. I love getting my class organised.
Anyway, I hope all is well with everyone, life with me is great, only 14 weeks until I become Mrs C!!!! Hell, I need to get a band organised!
