A Love Lost

I have not blogged for so long as the ability to somehow got wiped from my pc,I am having another try and have missed everyone so very much.
On 18th September at 2.30am Joycie passed away quietly.Our plan was for Mum to be here at home always ,but she became a little ill the week prior and we were told she was too frail and too much now for Bob and I.
We retired from work on 30th April to nurse Mum full time, it was a huge job for us both but we loved every minute of it.
Our lives have changed so much, we are lost,so used to no sleep as we were up with Mum every night several times for many months.She never complained and made the magic age of 94.
My brother and I lost both Mum and Dad when Mum went and the hole left in our lives is huge. So lucky to have been blessed to be born to her.
Her two puppies are missing her terrible but slowly adjusting.

It is a big year for Bob, Georgie and I this year.We have placed our resignations in to Australia Post for the 30th April.I am having trouble getting my head into that space as I love my job and although I am ready to enjoy some quiet time I see many people each day and love them all.I sometimes am first to hear the news of a new baby,the passing of a loved one or the loss of a baby,broken hearts,family feuds etc,same for Bob he is not only the town postie but confidant to many.
The sad day when my mail delivery car was decorated for my last Christmas as a bush postie.

Poor Georgie...first he had 5 minutes of fame last year,plastered all over the national Daily Telegraph and Sunrise Tv and the Today show chasing him and Australia Post stopped his career before it started lol,(we like it better that way anyway.)..Now he is suffering withdrawals....
Crofts are shut for January!.he is craving Crofts Pies so much Bob cooked himself a frozen one and Georgie was over quick as a flash, he also loves Crofts salad rolls especially the Beetroot,many ...times travellers pull Bob over to take a pic of them eating at Crofties, some people say they should call the RSPCA most love seeing him and think it is great, the problem is Georgie thinks he is a person so the RSPCA is not good..best call DOCS..he also loves Potato Straws and chips,yogurt ,white coffee 2 sugars(if you have it another way you are safe lol) he loves Red wine,he hates anything made with light milk or diet food.
Bless his heart,he will miss all this when we give up work,I think we are going to have to have a little plan so he can have a ride on the bike occasionally and have a weekly Crofties!
