This covers the most important things in my life, my two girls and my best friends. Miss 17 and Miss 13 are my reason for living and laughing. This pic also includes one of my besties that I have been friends with for 34 years!

Spending time with mum, dad, my brother and sister in law, always involves great food, bubbles, wine and good times, blessed to still have both of my parents who retired up to the Sunshine Coast, so I have a permanent holiday home at the beach to visit whenever I like, good stuff!

Life without good coffee, is no life at all. I love coffee as long as it is not the instant variety. Our coffee machine works overtime in this house, as both my girls are into coffee. I don’t mind tea either and will often start my day with a Tetley’s or something yum from T2.

Chocolate and I are the best of friends, thank you very much Mr Cadbury and all the beautiful European deliciousness and the creators of marzipan and everything else in between.

Books, books and more books, just can’t get enough. Reading, learning and flipping through glossy magazines is my favourite way to enjoy some down time. Very rarely will a novel be in my hands, I love to learn, so non-fiction piles up high on my bedside table!

Heaven on earth in my eyes involves a beach, a pool or a pond (preferably with a 5 Star Resort attached to it – no camping for this little black duck). Adore the water and a holiday just ain’t a holiday for me unless water is a major player. After travelling the world with my family and being a corporate travel consultant for 13 years, I have seen my fair share of beautiful water wonderlands, and I love everyone of them.

aroma

Aromatherapy is my go-to medicine, relaxant, fix just about anything joy! You will often find me dripping and dropping my favourite blends, for my health and happiness. Pure essential oils are an important tool for me and my girls.

I could go on forever, but had to stop somewhere!

One step closer to closure for Daniel Morcombe’s family

It must be every parents worst nightmare, your child does not make it home one day. Whilst I was out with my girls last night enjoying a fun night with friends, the boys had the TV on watching a football match and the newsflash that a man had finally been charged with the murder of Daniel Morcombe saw a complete hush fall over our rather rowdy gathering.

Since December 2003, when 13 year old Daniel disappeared, all of Australia followed the story with sadness that his body was never discovered, no progress seemed to be made in finding a killer, and that this might be one of those missing person files that is never solved. A little glimmer of hope burned in my heart that it might turn out to be a teen prank that could have a happy ending. As time passed it was pretty clear that this story was not going to be one of those.

The tireless efforts of Daniel’s parents, to NEVER give up until they had answers has finally paid off. A suspect is now more than that and the Morcombe family is another step closer to finding a little peace that closure can bring. I shed some more tears as the pain they must be feeling tore at my heart strings.

Tonight, as your children are safely at home, sharing dinner and then sleeping cosily in bed, give thanks that they are with you, even if they have pushed your patience to the brink today, and please send love and peace from your heart, to the Morcombe family.
