I went away to the Hunter Valley over the weekend with one of my closest friends, and a few of her friends..  It's something I'd been wanting to do for a couple of years, but being her 40th birthday, it presented the perfect opportunity. It was a nice break and everything was gorgeous.

We went in to the Hunter Valley Chocolate Shop, and I bought a lolly-pop for each of the kids at back at home. It was only when Id left one on each of their pillows I realised I had one left over; Id automatically bought 5.  :-)

Joshy called them wolly-pops. Guess Ill eat his.  :-)

Corner of the Sky

As tends to be the way with me, after thinking about it for a while, I suddenly made a decision that I was ready to listen to the music that Josh and I would sing together in the car.  It's Sky Medley - Corner of the Sky/ Up Up and Away by Lisa Crouch.

I listened to her CD from the beginning on the way home from somewhere in the car.  This particular song is eighth on the CD, and I bawled the whole way through it.  I replayed the song again, and managed to sing some, and didn't cry as hard...

It took two days, but I can finally play and sing along to that song, and it is once again one of my favourite CD's.

I'm sharing that so that it is understood, by anyone else who has experienced loss, or is grieving, that things, one at a time, do get better or at least easier, day by day.
