Hi everyone, well here i am with my very own blog. After a lot of setting up i am finally on. Today is Helen's 15th birthday. (25th Feb). It doesn't seem like 15 years ago she was born. Time has flown by so quickly and already halfway through high school. My job is back to 2 days a week although three days this week. I'm hoping to get more days as the the lady i will eventually take over has been training to become a personel care assistant and has finished but is still doing cleaning as well as doing PCA work. She is getting tired of doing both. I work in an aged care hostel and been there 9 months. Iwas working every day (weekdays) over Christmas filling in while the other cleaner had 5 weeks off. The reason there is another cleaner is the hostel is divided in half , she does one half i do the side which is 2 storey with the top a dementia unit where they have their own kitchen where i sometimes fill in on other days. I also sell Avon Products. This is my 10th year.,although business is not exactly booming in fact i'm not making any money at the moment. My customers are reluctant to buy after christmas. I'm also a team leader which is becoming more of a nuisance as they expect team leaders to do more for the company voluntary.Avon doesn't give much away for nothing. 'Bye for now, Jo.

Hi Jo,

I say get out of the Avon business! They're draining you of funds and energy. You can use your energy more wisely. I love that you're training to be a PCA, especially in a hostel. People needs lots of love and care, especially those who are struggling. From what I know of you through Mark, you will be perfectly suited for your new job. I wish you all the luck in the world and hope you get to do exactly what you want to do.

Jo, honestly, I am so happy you're here. We all love Mark so much and now Helen. You complete the circle. Blogging is so amazing and it has the ability to bring people together from all over the world and from all walks of life. I think it is remarkable. I would never have known you or your family without it. I'm grateful. Honey, if you have the time, go to my blog and page down to the bottom of my links. There's a doctor from Aussie Land working in Africa I think you, Mark and Helen would love to meet. The last 6-7 posts are amazing. Click on his link. You'll see. Because Helen is home schooled, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce herself to him, learn more, write a paper, etc. It's such an amazing learning opportunity. He's so kind and generous, he would embrace Helen as if she were his own child. Trust me. You'll see. Perhaps she'll end up working in Africa with him or doing an internship. I thought of the two of them working together a few days ago 00000000000000000000000.......... (Whoops...Ohno wrote that!) because they're perfected suited for one another. Let me know what you think.

It's so nice to have you here. We all love your family so much and now you complete the picture. Life is beautiful.

Much love,
Suzy XO

Honey, tell your brilliant hubby or brilliant daughter, or perhaps you, that your link to CSI leads back to Mark! Some one screwed up! Too funny!

Hi Jo,
I am so glad you have got your own blog. I had seen that you had it, but had not posted yet, so I had to wait to say Welcome! I love talking to Mark and to Helen. Now the circle is complete. I am sure we all will be here to visit a lot! Hope, you all had a great time celebrating Helen's Birthday. Now, I am off to visit Helen.

Hugs and love,
