My highlights of happiness continue to be based on my family. I cherish my time with them and am grateful for them each day. I love being a mother. It is so easy to be busy with life, and I have been making an extra effort to stop and enjoy my children. Stuff the housework. For a bit, anyway.

I went back to Adelaide for a weekend, and it was so wonderful to catch up with friends and family, who I miss so very much. I am finding it difficult to be so far away from people I love but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. It’s a battle, for sure.
