Tamara sketch 92

Had a go a Tamaras sketch challenge today.



Well I haven't really ever posted about life with me, so here goes.

My son Ashley has been in Navy training now for nearly 3 weeks, had nice chat with him last night. Seems to be doing ok. Hard work and pleny of Ironing LOL.

Ryan my eldest has just qualified as an Endoresed Enrolled Nurse and is currently looking for a job closer to home. He has an interview on Wed at the hospital I work at so fingers crossed, but his interview skills are practically non existing and his manner can sometimes come across as arrogant. He isnt really but he doesnt communticate to well with adults unless they are elderly. I am so proud of both my boys, who can ask for more from them. No drugs and aged 18 and 19.

Rebecca my youngest is 14 and dont i know it. Generally she is a good girl, not interested in boys, spends most of her time with her friend Rachel, in fact I think thay are siamese twins. But how nice to have such a good friend. She is doing very well at school and seems to thrive. Homework is a big issue, she doesnt do it. But still seems to scrape through with very good reports each year/term.

Its coming up to our being here for 4 years on 3rd May and we have no regrets about our move. We do miss family and friends but the lifestyle here more than makes up for it. Violence is much much less than UK, but is getting worse. We basically stepped back 10-15 years in time. My job is looking pretty darn safe and so is hubbies, we cant ask for more than that.

My MS has been a major issue since dx in Nov 07, but seems to be pretty stable. I get very stiff/numb/cold feet which is my biggest problem along with a major jaw issue which cause great discomfort. I take lots of meds to try and overcome it and also see a chiro (which I hate doing) The man is sooooo nice and very good. My jaw has been heaps better since seeing him on Wed, so heres hoping. I have just had molds taken to have a mouth guard made to hold my jaw in the correct position at night and to stop me grinding (if i do). I wish I didnt have it, its so dabiliating sometimes and people dont realise cause you look good and seem fine. So I am going to say this once 'why me'.

Hey you know this is good to get out what you feel LOL. Feeling better already.

Bec layout

I have taken to having a go at the scrapbook establishment challenges each month. Aprils is out and as it happens to be my day off I though I would have ago. I am really pleased with the result, the paper I had was one that I had been waiting to use and it fitted in perfectly with this months challenge.
