“Moving On!”

This week my oldest son Cody has been packing up the last 11 years of his life living with me and JJ here in Martin Street. He has decided it is time to leave the ‘nest’ and get out into the big wide world beyond home. I am a bit mixed about this as it will be odd not having him around, but I am sure his little brother will keep me amused πŸ™‚

He is moving in Monday with the best mate, who he has been friends right through Secondary school πŸ™‚Β Β  I know he is ready, and I feel I am now too for him to take this next step and get closer to his career in the Vic Police Force. I am so proud of him πŸ™‚

I took this photo unknown to them last weekend when we visited mum. They have been so close growing up and I know they will miss one another. Although with Cody at work a fair bit of the time and they play games on-line together not much will prob change for them πŸ™‚ I will miss the loud laughter that comes from their bedroom when they are playing games or watching The Umbilical Bros on their tv lol!! πŸ™‚

Cody went up this morning and finalized his bed delivery for Monday and tmorrow we are going to Geelong so he can get some things he needs like linen etc πŸ™‚ Oh yep and some curtains for my new room too as JJ and I are doing a swap πŸ™‚

I am busy with work now also and don’t see as much of him as I used to but our nightly chats when I get home from work will be what I miss the most 😦

I am very thankful for my two wonderful boys, and I promised Cody I wouldn’t text him too much and he is going to come around for dinner during the week when he can and catch up πŸ™‚Β  We will see lol!

“Life Update”

Hi everyone,

Not much happening with me on the scrap-book front atm, but enjoying my new job and learning heaps πŸ™‚

I just wanted to share with you the gorgeous sunrise I see every morning when I am on an early shift. I live in a lovely part of the world and I never tire of this view on my way to work πŸ™‚

I am loving my new role and it is great learning on the job skills I have read about in class. I am picking things up pretty quick and always something different to do πŸ™‚

I go back to school on the 15/7, then work placement and I will have my qualification πŸ™‚ It has been a great course and I am so glad I decided to go down this path and where it has led me πŸ™‚

I haven’t got as much time as I had to scrap and do things, but it is great feeling useful once again. I am doing a little scraping, but I have also started a crocheted blanket for my bed. It is just squares of double crochet, but enough for my brain lol!!

Two colours so I don’t get bored and will prob do a different coloured edge.It is going to take me awhile but will amuse me on night shift some nights πŸ™‚ It is 8 ply acrylic as I am allergic to wool, but will still be lovely and warm πŸ™‚Β The rows are 30 chain but 19 rows as I miscounted hehe! Might get a bit more adventurous with a pattern next time πŸ™‚ I crocheted a shell pattern throw for the lounge awhile ago which was pretty easy but too bulky to take to work πŸ™‚

Better get my shoes on if I am going for a walk, and hope you all have a great week πŸ™‚

TFL πŸ™‚ Kerri x
