MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well it's been a long day. My grandmother visited today so I was between media releases which is why not much has been happening on the other side of this insane blog and talking to my Grandmother who is now 92 years old. My sister Lynette(she's the eldest in my family of six kids!) came up with Gran since the drive from Auckland is nearly two hours away. Gran is a great great grandmother with many grandchildren, great grand children and yet more coming. My Mum has a photo of five generations starting with Gran and all her descendants. My Gran is awesome and I am so glad she's been able to see another Christmas.
Sad news today too. A close friend of our family passed away today from cancer. She had hoped to make it to Christmas Day but sadly that was not meant to be. Her pain is over but our sadness is great. Her husband with her built up one of the world's leading rose breeding nurseries. Their roses are exported all over the world and are in many well known gardens. That will continue with their wonderful family. My Mum naturally is devastated that she has lost a lifetime very close friend.. I have one of her special rose bushes here in my garden and I hope it will continue to produce wonderful blooms for many seasons to come.
On a brighter note the girls and I want to wish all our wonderful friends from all over the world
a very merry Christmas. Please lock up your Christmas puddings there are....greedy eyes about...
