What a year it’s been! 2016 flew by at a rate of knots and 2017 will probably be the same. In a months time, it will be two years since we arrived back on the Gold Coast and how we love Mermaid Beach!
Well 17 years today Steve and I tied the knot in England!……and 26 years together! What an amazing journey we have had…..
Out tonight to lovely Valentinos in Broadbeach. Can’t wait! Oysters and Oyster Bay sav blanc….magnifico! I love being back in my homeland and living on the coast of Queensland is a dream for beach lover me. Happy Anniversary Steve…love you forever. X
Just want to say thank you to my husband Steve please continue your patience and strong resolve xcxc
Yep, it’s been a great weekend, walking, swimming, sunbathing and watching cricket at the Surf Club and tonight we’re off to a little gem of a place we found a couple of weeks ago, Lucky Buddha Thai restaurant in Mermaid Beach. Even if we find a house in Burleigh Heads, we’ll come back here every week as the food is exceptional…to die for material…… fresh, authentic reasonably priced Thai dishes and service is with a smile in an airy, spacious, light and contemporary atmosphere. It does get quite warm in here though, so dress cool!!!!!
What a great weekend it’s been! The weather has been beautiful….sunny and very warm….just the way I like it, but these days I cover myself in factor 50 sunscreen (my family wouldn’t believe this!!)
I walked from Mermaid Beach to Burleigh Heads and return, about 12 kms……..it’s true what they say about exercise…..it’s a great healer!
The 500 metre challenge is on and I have a pretty good feeling Steve is going to win this!!…….
It’s taking me a while to mentally get to grips with being back in my homeland of Australia, but I’m in the best possible place to get my mind back in order…..I love the Queensland coast, even though Tropical Cyclone Marcia is taking the fun away! Thank you Steve for helping me on the path to getting well again….I can’t imagine life without you. X
Boy I have missed these gorgeous little beauties….fresh and full of flovour, off the shores of Australia…..the best in the world in my opinion. Prawns in England aren’t a patch on what we have from our coastlines and in the US….well, mostly farmed but even the prawns (they call them shrimp!) caught from the gulf still don’t live up to our Aussie beauties. We live in the best country in the world (OK, yes, I am pleased to be home again lol!) Yippee!!
What a relief to get far away from the food we consumed in the US….now finally back in Oz where the food is clean and pretty much free of pesticides and genetically modified processes……and everything has sugar added to the food in the US (but that’s another story!) So Valentine’s Day and we went to a great little Thai place down the road….and we loved it! Food cooked fresh to order….. gorgeous, authentic Thai and so reasonably priced…….and the service was fantastic…..just what the doctor ordered!!
My sister Jane told me yesterday of the spine-tingling encounter that she had with my Dad’s spirit a few days ago….quite unbelievable but real. I knew dad was watching over us as I have felt his spiritual presence many times and often felt he was talking to me silently (no I haven’t totally lost my mind yet!). This incredible incident Jane experienced reassures what I thought all along…..dad is still with us in spirit and this great amazing man said he is not alowing him self to pass on to a higher plane until his work is done, helping and guiding his family…….OMG!
Well, we are in paradise again around active, fit and the most amazing chilled, positive, friendly people on this planet……(Australians mate!) How I love OZ and the beautiful coastline…….makes the USA in most areas look like an even bigger nightmare than they are and will degenerate to be………..thanks Dad for watching over me on my nightmare that is coming to an end! Onwards and upwards as mum would say…….
WOW! arrived in Oz this morning and have just had a lovely few wines and met some friends in the surf club this arvo in beautiful QLD…..how I love and have missed Australia so much!! (haven’t slept a wink since I left Florida a day or two ago) but feeling on top of the world!! Thank you Steve for keeping an eye on my cabin fever!!!! Thanks Dad too for watching over your ‘darling girl’ XX
