Love from Raphaela

Thankyou so much for the support! It has meant the world to me! It has been a very busy week here! I took my daughter to see an excellent documentary on conserving our reefs at the IMAX Theatre. If you are in Sydney, you have to see a documentary here! They give you glasses which only work at IMAX, and you feel as though the animals are reaching out to you. It gave the kids a clear idea on what is happening to our coral reefs, and how we can help thwart the damage being done.

I saw a friend in hospital, and it happened to be one I had surgery in at seventeen. I got completely lost, and ended up at the ICU doors. I stood there for a  moment, remembering how I fought to keep my lungs inflated. How I fought for my life. There was joy and pride in the remembrance. The hospital looked so little compared to how big it had seemed. Due to a skilled surgeon, my life was saved. It is bizarre; I have met so many people this year who had been operated on by the same doctor! We have our own little fan club going! He is now retired, much to our frustration. He was a genius.

There have been art and science classes, as well as drama, leaving little time to plug away at my manuscript. It will get there, slowly but surely. I have a time frame and am determined to reach it! Home schooling my daughter is one of the greatest joys in my life. I believe that every life has a season. As she grows, I wont be needed quite as much to help with her lessons. I will have so much time when she turns eighteen, that I shall be able to write a hundred books! She is only this young for such a short while.

We are experiencing a very hot March, even though we are meant to be in Autumn. There are still some beach days left in Sydney! 

We have a full house this coming week, with a few precious ones staying. I have stocked up on snacks, wine and games. The birds have been told to be on their best behaviour! May you all have a wonderful weekend.
