NOT the best photo, but it's the only one I have on my own 
with both kids. I'll get another one sometime! At The Twelve 
Apostles, Great Ocean Road, not far from Geelong.

Growing further... Alia and Mat 2001.  I was very happy 
with this young man! (Just as well, he stuck around ;-)

Lindsay 2004, I'm just a little bit proud of what he was doing by then 
as well! Working in high-end wepage development, and making some 
of Australia's best web-pages... he's not looked back.

Me at 51, on the road out the front of the house that Jack built, 
Hines Lane, Redbank, December 2007

From the rather sad and lonely girl who ran away at the top of 
this page, I've ended up matriarch to three very fine girls, and 
three very fine boys, well loved and appreciated, and very proud 
of my family. I'm blessed!
