My little ones are off to school tomorrow and it just doesn't seem like I've had long enough with them - I'm sure this happens with most parents - I had my first baby only 6.5 years ago and already I'm saying goodbye to number 2 and 3. It's gone so fast.
I had a moment of self-doubt yesterday with our decision to separate the girls in different classes (that's right for them but circumstances at school changed) so I found myself even more emotional than expected (off the Richter scale) also throw into that mix having to have Eloise's class changed - which I 100% believe is the right decision for her - it's not easy putting your hand up to advocate for your child. Especially when you know you're in an emotional state already.
All this heat and my family in Cairns with cyclones approaching hasn't made for a relaxing 24 hours but I've only got just about another 24 hours left until my babies are getting ready for school and the cyclone is due to hit. In more ways than one. Please be thinking of me tomorrow on both counts - my babies starting school and the safety of my Mum, Dad, Sister, Brother-in-law and nieces as well as good friends in Cairns. My sister and her family have been officially evacuated and their house is shut up and everything tied down. They are at slightly higher ground and slightly inland at my parent's house. I pray they are all OK.
It's not often I 'pour my heart' out as it were. I am so thankful to my family and friends at times like these and you - my lovely readers who when I pop onto facebook and twitter and see your lovely messages here really lift my spirits. Thank you so much.
