Greetings from Ayr...

Happy New Year every-one....
I saw the new year in with a lovely lady I met in Townsville called Leanne, we sat and talked to 1 am.and saw the new year in together. Leanne was from my old stomping ground Mt Isa. You know some people come along that you just click with well she was one of these people. I wonder if she was an angel in disguise. Well I thank God for sending her down to sit and listen to my mad ravings, and you all know what there like. My eldest son said he was staying up to midnight to kick the old year in the a**e and make sure it was gone.Well it's gone and 2010 is going to be a year of new beginnings here in the Storey household. I hope you have all enjoyed the first day of 2010...We spent the day over at Magnetic Island with my Aunty and Uncle, cousin and her 2 children..We had a wonderful time catching up with them and seeing the sights of the island..The boys loved Magnetic so much they asked if the could move there.They met there 2nd cousins how were there age and played in the creek that was running at the back of the house (ankle deep) a very care free life that's for sure.
Last night we spent in Ayr as we only left T/ville at 4p.m. What a lovely pretty little town this is later I'll take a photo before we get on the road and show you. Today we are heading down the coast, I don't know where we'll stay but I'll know when I see it.
So far this trip has been what I wanted a healing trip and I am starting to heal.... slowly.
I'll talk again from the road...
Blessings Mandy.
