The last few months of 2009

Hi friends...
Well it's been a busy last few months of 2009.
I have moved into a new more modern unit still in Toowoomba = it has a nice outdoor courtyard. Will miss the friends I made at Tourist Rd but I enjoy the privacy of my new unit.
I have been dating a new lovely man "Paul" since July. We have been friends for 20 years or more.. but recently we became closer and I am so lucky to have him. He treats me with respect, adoration and is a true gentleman. I admire so much about him and He is a wonderful father to his 2 boys Liam (13yrs)and Callum (10yrs).
So as the end of 2009 draws to an end.. with xmas day only 3 days away I thought I would update my blog finally !
I have made some lovely new friends in Toowoomba with working at the CBA business centre and at Telstra. I have reconnected with some old school friends from St Saviours still living in Toowoomba after all these years !
Am still in touch with my dear friends Rosey, Louise, Julie and I know we will always be close .
My Brother Tim has finally come home from England to live with his Fiance and we are all excited about their wedding next year in April .
My sister Sara and hubby Anthony are going well - and gorgeous Amelia is now 3 years old and Sam is 9 months..
Sam is crawling.. will be walking soon.. he has the most gentle sweet nature.. always smiling.. he is beautiful !
Mum and Dad are well.. with some exciting plans for 2010. I am very happy for them and it will be great when Dad can retire and enjoy life a bit more !!
As for me.. well still struggling with the never ending burden of weight loss.. !!
But am happy and doing well.
Here are some photos of my boyfriend Paul and I...
Hope to be back in 2010.
Love Miranda xxx

Easter with the Bonser Family

My Very Special Easter weekend !!
Hello All.. I am back on my Blog ! Finally !
This is Rosey ! My inspirational Friend who I love so much. It was Rosey who inspireda and motivated me to start my own blog ! Rosey and I have been friends over 20 years.. She means the world to me.. sometimes I don't have enough words to say how much of a special, wonderful and precious Friend she is to me !

Below ! Easter with the Bonser's... I love them all so much !
Oops.. these photos are around the wrong way.. wasn't sure how to fix them.. Lily, Mia and Claudia.. dressups !

This Easter was extra special for me as I got to spend 2 lovely days with my wonderful friend Rosey and her precious adorable family. I feel like I am a part of her family and I just adore her girls and Mick .
Where do I start ! We had such fun on good Friday .. Siberian Mules were the drink of the day..Rosey's lovely Husband was the best host & I was spoilt by him making these drinks. They were just so yummy and resfreshing and the vodka nip was the extra special ingredient which helped us all to relax and enjoy the lovely afternoon.

Into the evening.. the girls decided to have dress ups with my clothes.. this was fun !
(See above pictures)

Rosey and Mick then cooked up a Good Friday feast of yummy prawns, fresh fish and veges ! It was wonderful and soooo delicious ! Once again I felt so spoilt and special x

Easter Saturday - was extra special as I got to experience my first Easter Egg hunt ever ! We went to Petrie and visited a lovely little "Shabby Chick" store with beautiful handmade items called "Lili cottage".. it was a delight. And the Easter egg hunt with the children brought out the child in me !

Mia and her easter eggs..

Rosey, Linda, Mia and Lily on the easter egg hunt!

Below -Saturday afternoon.. playtime with the girls.. Giggles and love all round !

I must also say a big Thankyou to Mia and Lily for the beautiful Sand Art pictures they made for me.. ( Rosey's lovely sister Anita.. whom I miss very much as she is living in London - bought this amazing gift for Mia's birthday ) and I was the very lucky receipient of these wonderful butterly sand art pictures. ! I will treasure them and they will be framed and on display for all to see.. Thankyou girls.. I am soooo lucky ! xx
Saturday night.. Rosey and I went to the local Rsl for a couple of drinks and a catch up.. this was such a fun and special night.. Rosey always makes me laugh, feel so loved and makes me feel so special.. She is an amazing person, a mother, teacher, friend and crafty !
Easter morning.. squeals of excitment at 6am !! Oh my gosh.. it was so wonderful to be a part of the Bonser family on Easter Sunday morning after the Easter Bunny had been ! I will never forget how excited the girls were and what a special morning this was.. I was spoiled once again by Rosey and Mick with a yummy pancake breakfast ! Oh this was a special weekend for me..!
Here is my precious Goddaughter.. Claudia.. Easter morning.. isn't she adorable !!
Oh and to the far left is a photo of Rosey and I taken at the Angel Cafe 2 weeks ago..

My Brother Tim.. my buddy !

I must tell you about my brother Tim now.. Tim is 8 years younger than me.. (28years).. I remember the day he was born so well... My mother's mum "Nana" came into our bedroom to tell Sara my sister and I that we have now a new baby brother.. I was "Hooray" ! Sara wanted another Girl for a Sister..which was funny but she came around quickly..
Tim has been the kindest, sweetest, most generous brother anyone could wish for !
He rarely gets angry,, is patient and loyal. He really is just great..
Tim has been living overseas for the past 4 years in Bristol ( England ) with his lovely Girlfriend Katie ( now fiance.. to be married to eachother soon ! ). So I havn't seen a lot of Tim over the past few years but we keep in contact all the time and soon enough he will be back living in Australia again, so I can "annoy" him in a loving Sisterly way :)

Here is "Timbo and Katie ( his fiance) " !

Stay tuned for my next blog.. more about my beautiful sister Sara..
Love Miranda

Just beginning.. by Just M xx

Hello all,

I am just starting my new blog today.. I have so much to say and talk about but I don't know where to start. My dearest friend Rosey inspired me to begin a blog.. to share with others. I don't know where it will lead.. or what direction it will go.. but that is what life is all about isn't it. We don't know where life is taking us.. I believe in fate... everything happens for a reason.. we just need to enjoy everyday as if it could be our last..
I am blessed with a loving family and some amazing, inspirational, loving friends.. so I will just follow my heart as I write in my blog and share with you my life as it continues day by day..

I love quotes and collect quotes.. I will start today with one of my favourites to share with you ..
"May you have enough happiness to make you sweet,
Enough trials to make you strong,
Enough sorrow to make you human,
and enough hope to make you happy "...
That is all for now...
Much love,
Just M xxxx
