Sometimes I feel the urge to blog, even if I havent got anything exciting to blog about. I usually just fight the urge and do something else. This time  I have started typing, who knows what my fingers are going to type or what weird place my brain is going to take you... I have no idea, no idea at all. It's Friday afternoon and we have just made banana muffins, I ate one too many and am feeling a bit full. I cant say that they are delicious, cos that would be lying and I dont lie. They are passable, with a cup of tea. I love drinking tea, did you know that?  Tea is good. God is good, therefore Tea is God? hmm no not quite. I'm sure God likes tea though.

Im feeling hot and dopey. My head is hot. My head is always hot. I always have a red face. Its embarrassing. Why is this? I wish I knew.  Those last couple of sentences feel a bit Dr Seussy.  Dr Seuss is strange and genius all at the same time. A bit like me really ;) We are both really random. Never ever at the beginning of this page, when I let my fingers run free did I imagine that i'd be writing about Dr Seuss. This is just wild. Oh gosh, oh gee, what is happening to me???

I had 11 hours of sleep last night, I dont think ive ever slept that long, like EVER! It was amazing. My littlest has started sleeping through, finally, at 3 years old. I'm getting full night sleeps for the first time in 8.5 years, and it's brilliant. Im hoping that now i'm getting sleep that my brain will start functioning again. They say 'use it or loose it' so i'm hoping that the 9 years of not using it hasn't caused too much permanent damage. Sleep deprivation is coming to an end, so I wont be able to blame that on my vagueness anymore, eeekkkk. I want to read and read and gain knowledge. Hopefully now i'll be able to read a book without getting half way through a page and falling asleep :) Oh the possibilities are endless...  in saying that, is it bedtime yet???

This is the RAW Bec, the unedited Bec. I got sick of jpeg mode, too perfect.

Ok, i must stop this ridiculous rambling and clean up the muffin mess.
Love to you all dear ones

Cos Im Happy

Hello there lovely readers of my blog, welcome, welcome, thankyou for visiting :)

Im feeling very happy today! My heart is soaring!

Ever since I first thought about homeschooling, the thing that freaked me out was the THEAC (Tasmanian Home Education Advisory Council ) home visit! Thinking about it made me stressed.
Yesterday was the day... the day I had been dreading for so long.  And surprisingly enough, the moment I saw the lady walk down the driveway my nerves turned to excitement... umm hello... the dreaded visit and i'm bouncing to open the door!?!? I knew the lady years ago, and the first thing she said is, "All morning I was trying to picture what you would look like these days, and you are exactly what Id imagined". Well  that set the meeting off well and I didnt shut up for an hour.

 She looked through all of Malachi's work, and went through all of his blogs (I had printed them all), she asked Chi questions and wrote lots of notes. She thought he was very animated. He put on a great performance, man I was proud of him!!! He bought things out to show her and even spilled dirt from his worm farm on her!  She asked me question about assessment etc etc and then I asked her what Im doing wrong. She smiled and said, "You are doing such a great job." She was so positive, I loved it. I loved that I could tell her about all the positive changes we can see in Malachi, how he isnt angry and sad all the time. How he doesnt have a complete meltdown when he cant spell a word. If nothing else, this year has already been a success just because of that! My boy is so much more confident. My passion came through and after she left I felt so happy, relieved and excited... I just wanted to hug everyone!!! 

Im also excited about our future. Some of you know that some stuff went on at Kingborough Family Church and we felt it was time for us to move on. It was a heartbreaking time as it was my church home for 23 years, I loved it with all my heart and gave it my all. It was hard. Id never been so sad in my whole life. I felt like someone had died. I just cried ALOT! I worked through the anger stage and then the sad stage... and along the way we found a new church to call home. I have made some lovely new friends and am serving God in different ways. WE are so excited about the future. I feel like im a part of something so much bigger than me and im just SOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!! Ive learnt that God is so Good and Faithful and Giver of peace and comfort. God loves you, what ever you are going through HE is there with open arms, nothing is too hard for Him. I just want to tell everyone about how amazing God is, and I WILL!!!

SO this is why im happy:) And the fact that you took the time to read my ramblings also adds to my happiness. Thankyou! Thankyou!

Love you all
