11th April 2010
On a blustery, chilly Autumn day I was so excited because Luke from one fine day photography was coming to take some family photographs of us, thanks to Carol from ABC. Luke arrived and he had a cup of coffee and a chat with all the family and he was really nice. Then it was time to have some photographs taken, we have some nature parkland nearby so that was the perfect location for the photographs to be taken. The first photographs Luke took were of all of us with me sitting on a chair, then we had some taken of us sitting on the ground because I don't have a lot of fat on my bottom and I was sitting on a rock, it hurt a little bit! We then did individual shots, I was able to stand leaning on a tree for mine, it was a bit weird to stand on my own with only a tree for support I felt really off balance but I was determined that I was going to do it and it was fun. We then came back home and had some more photographs taken, I even got some done with Tinkerbelle and Theodore which I was very happy about because they are both really special to me. Luke was really lucky because he was the first person other than Mum, Dad, Nalani, Jarrett and I to see the digital copy of my book in our house. Having our photographs taken was so wonderful and they will remind us of how special being a family and treasuring every day is.
In the afternoon the weather had become worse so we watched a DVD, I worked on my canvases and we watched the Panthers versing Roosters game on television. In the footy tips this week I am doing really well, I have only got the Storm game wrong so far so that only leaves the Eels versing the Raiders to go I tipped the Raiders to win so hopefully they do. The Wests Tigers won again this weekend, they are on fire, especially Benji Marshall who seemed to inspire the team again this week.
With the weather turning cooler my right knee has a throbbing pain continually and it is also very swollen. My poor little head with its lack of hair gets really cold and my scar gets shooting pain in it also, so around the house I wear a beanie to try to keep my head warm.
It is school holidays now so I can spend lots of time with Nalani and Jarrett and preparing for my book launch. It is now only ten days away and I know that it will be incredible, I can hardly wait.
A gigantic thank you to all the people who have been leaving me such encouraging comments, I truly appreciate them. I hope that every day the sun shines upon you all and brightens your life in so many ways.
