Such a sad day today
We have had to say Goodnight to Lou Williams. She is Australian and has had a wonderful life traveling around the world and living in European countries.
Although she talked and shared her blog she was in fact a very private person. We never got to know the true Lou.
She had asked me how to write a blog and I helped her to start one
In 2013 where one of her writings was about the regrowth
She kept beating the disease but it always grew back Her famous words were never,never give up We never will xx :-

After one lost blog of a couple of year’s ago I have finally started a new one and this is my first entry! Every morning when I wake up and ask myself what is on my list of things to do today – make a blog pops up always and I remind myself ‘today is the day’! However up until now it has been in the too hard basket.
Not sure what I will write in this blog as so much has happened over the last few years, in particular with mesothelioma and asbestos. Random thoughts I will jot down from time to time and try to put dates to these thoughts. Depending on how exhausted I am will also determine how much blogging that I do.
A slow start for today – I woke at 7am and couldn’t lie in bed any longer, got up, fed our beautiful siamese cat Charlie with his brekkie (free range chicken that he loves), made a cuppa of green tea and toast for myself then sat in the comfortable chair/lounge room and watched an hour of the Today Show on TV to get the latest headlines and also see if it will be a high fire danger day here – yes it is a high fire danger day here with winds expected to turn around later today. Luckily there are not major outbreaks of fires close by, although there have been a few started by ‘nutters’ – most of these have been able to be contained thanks to the dedication of our CFA (Country Fire Association) members and volunteers.
I am still on this computer at 10am! The time goes so quickly when I am on here, checking facebook, emails, replying to emails etc – all of which I love doing. Shower time now, a drive up to Mt Macedon and the general store/cafe/post office to get our post box mail and no doubt stop and have a chat/coffee with friends while sitting outside under the shade of the beautiful Silver Birch trees watching the antics of the black birds pecking the ground for any crumbs of food they can scrounge, plus watching the wonderful display of old cars/bikes head up the Mount (Mount Macedon Road).
Later today – depending on whether it is safe to return home or if we need to evacuate due to the high fire warning will determine what the day brings!
Have a nice day/evening.
