This year has been an amazing year for me. I have accomplished a lot but I couldn’t have done it without my family around me.
The one person that made me start this journey this year is Matt. He was willing to give up on various work opportunities so that he could turn his attention to me. That is what made me want to start because Matt was willing to give up so much for me and I didn’t want to let him down.
My kids have also put up with a lot from me this year too. They have been really understanding.
The rest of my family have been a really great help too. I have lots of family in England and a lot in Australia as well
My sister, her husband and my nephew moved to Australia a few years back. I also have an Uncle (my Dads brother) and Aunty who have lived there over 35 years. I have 2 cousins and another Aunty (my Dads sister) and her husband who have been there a few years too.
Considering they are across the other side of the world they have been a constant support to me this year. They seem to like this blog and see how I am doing everyday. They are always giving me encouraging comments and very often I would get a private message with something they had resourced on my behalf.
I just want to say a big thank you to you all. Even though you are over the other side of the world and I don’t see you every day I always look forward to your comments and I know I am going to miss them when my year is up. Thank you for being there.
My family in England have also been a great help. I get to see them a lot more often so I don’t get so many comments but I do get them telling me things in person. Thank you all for being there for me.
Without my family I don’t think I could have ever done so well. Support is something that is really important when you go through a journey like this.
I guess it helps that I have a big family!
