Bali





Look at these two pictures, these pictures are taken of Bali beautiful right.  Kind of makes you want to go......right.

The shopping would be fantastic and so cheap, why you could buy a lot of new clothes......

But its behind the beauty that worries me.

My son will be 18 in September and doing his last year at high school, and wants to go to Bali at the end of this year with his friend who's parents own a house in Bali.
Now just today an old lady got arrested in Bali because she was caught with drugs on her.  How many times do we hear this, how many times have people in Bali say don't bring drugs to Bali because you will get arrested.  It still baffles me that people still do it.

The night life I've been told by friends who have gone to Bali is great.......you just have to be careful of  some Bali people trying to sell you drugs on the street.  That's what I'm afraid of for my son is people offering drugs to him, and making him feel uncomfortable when he says no.

Yes I'm an over protective mum, and i worry he has never been overseas on his own before, he will be 18 so i cant stop him from going.

My husband has wanted to take me and my kids to Bali for year, and i have been to afraid to go.  Because to the drugs.  I'm scare someone will puts some in my bags or try to sell me some on the street or even put some in my drinks.  And all of this i have heard people in Bali do.......

Please let me know what you think.

New Year's Resolutions

I wonder how many of you make New Year's Resolutions?
In the past I have made a lot, not one of my new year's resolutions did i follow through.
For me resolutions are like goals for me to actieve.  The only problem with that is i make to many and so it comes to overwhelming for me and i just give up.

So for this year I'm just going to make one New Year's Resolution.  And that is to do my family history.  Family History has become so big in Australia, that's it's got me thinking where i have come from.  That is it one goal for this year.

I will let you know every three months how I'm going with it, and share if i find some interesting stories of my ancestors with you.

I have no idea where making New Year's Resolutions come from or why it began.  Maybe starting a new year means starting with a clean slate.

I trick i have found is not making to many Resolutions try one or two at the beginning and see how that's works.

Good Luck see you all next week...

Keep smiling and say safe:-)
