It feels wrong that I haven't blogged about Lynley. So a previous post you'll see is photos from my trip to Brizzy and the Gold Coast recently. One of the main reasons I went was to see my cousin Lynley who had been diagnosed with cancer. I saw her on July 25th and it was so nice. I hadn't seen her or Graeme (her husband) in years and we didn't spend long together but it was so nice to just touch base and let her know that we love and care about her heaps. On Tuesday the 19th of August she passed away. It was a lot sooner than I had expected.

With Lynley and my Uncle Ian both dying recently it has brought us all a lot closer and reinforced my reason for coming back to Christchurch to spend time with my family. I've started spending time with my Uncle and Aunty on Dad's side and emailing cousins which I've either never spoken to or only when I was very young. It's really hard to say goodbye to Lynley but I know that through her I've met some really great people.

In My Opinion

I have opinions on things. We all do. It's not unusual. Some things I keep to myself unless I'm asked because it wouldn't be a popular opinion but it's still how I think. Recently though I've had 2 people ask me about specific things and then get really upset at my answer.

Seriously, if you don't want my opinion don't ask it. If you can't handle the answers don't ask! It's that simple! Cos I'm honest and I'll tell you the answer. I've had enough dishonestly and so if you ask my opinion then you'll get it. If you can't handle it toughen up.
