Today is my last day…

(sshhh I’m reading in the NY Public Library)
(In Grand Central Station)

Well it’s come to an end. I’ve squeezed the life out of New York! I’ve loved every moment of it. I’m ready to go home though. I love Australia and I love Wagga AND I can’t wait to see my boys. I love being a Mum more than anything in the world…

I’ve had such a nice time with just hubby and I. We’ve enjoyed each other’s company. After 12 years of marriage it was nice to re-group. But we’re energised and ready to get back to our normal lives.

I have appreciated the opportunity to go to BlogHer and really want to thank you all for voting for me to be here. Thanks to Kidspot for making this happen. I’ve learned lots and can’t wait to come home and implement some ideas on my blog. I have lots of ideas but still need to work out where I want to take them and how. I still need the right people to work with – still working that part out.

But all in all, I want to thank you for reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed my NY trip. I’ve been watching you on Google Analytics and it’s telling me you liked them. So thank you!

I hope I get to come back here again one day. It’s been fulfilling and enriching for a little country chick like me.

See you all when I land back in OZ when I have my babies with me….

I know that heartfelt message behind your comments about being a mum (and wanting to be with them!) No matter how old they get, I can honestly tell you THAT NEVER CHANGES!!! I LOVE being a mum and wouldn’t change it for all the world! I am so blessed and I miss them dreadfully when I’m not with them!!!

    So glad you had a wonderful time. NY looks amazing, my oldest girlfriends & I have decided that we would love to NY when we turn 45. Still young enough to be funky & old enough that we are leaving behind toddlers etc. I can’t wait.
    Just hope we pull it off. Betcha those babies of yours are tugging at the heart strings about now. I am exactly the same. I’m having a blast & then all of a sudden “it’s time” to get back to my babes. Love to you. Niki
