So ... the timing worked out perfectly. The day the tour ended, 29th July 2009, my sister was scheduled for her C-Section and all went very well. Kayley Mae Jensen was born and she is sooooo cute. Absolutely lovely. I love her to bits.

Because I haven't got a job yet (I'm in the process of applying for a job), I've been able to spend quite a bit of time with my little niece, yip helping out with feeds (not the breast part! the bottle part!!), nappies (ok, only one but it was traumatic enough), bath times, burping, winding, weekly weighing appointments, etc. It's been absolutely fantastic!! I'm glad I don't have a job at the moment cos I don't know how else I would have been able to spend time with her like this.

I'll post some pics later on, maybe a few weeks time and then do a quick update on my life. Hopefully I'll have a job, be going to gym regularly (get my jelly-ass into gear, I'm so unfit!), and maybe a bit more of a routine. I can't believe it's "Real Life" now. It's a good and a bad thing. Good cos I can't travel forever and I am approaching 30 and need to start considering settling down :( Bad because I still have so much more of the world to see. I'm on the wrong side of 50 (I mean in terms of country counts!).

So I'll catch up with you soon. Please email me and tell me what's what with your life and I promise I'll try to get back to you within a decent amount of time - I need to turn over a new leaf and email people back within the same century as receiving it!

Keep well ok. And thanks for reading my blog - I really appreciate it. :)
