It took very little time to realise what a special lady Master J had befriended over the last five months. There is so much to love about Miss J! We had the pleasure of spending a few short days together, including a visit to Iluka on Monday. The Iluka Nature Reserve never disappoints with its World Heritage listed rainforest right by the seaside.
The rainforest walk meets the sea at the Iluka Bluff, where we all enjoyed searching among the many rock pools, spotting an amazing array of wildlife, including sea snakes! After spending the last 24+ years staying in safe areas, watching over our many babies and small children, I also am now having a chance to wander freely and explore - and loving it!
We even spotted some whales out to sea, a beautiful way to finish our walk. A very pleasant Monday afternoon indeed.
Tuesday afternoon brought the beginning of a brand new adventure. Master J proposed to Miss J! And she said YES! He broke the news to his siblings by asking them if they would like another sister (we have six daughters and two sons). They were all very surprised - and very pleased! Master J doesn't waste time when he makes up his mind about something. The 'JJs', as Miss E (8) calls them, are now busily planning a wedding for early February, (just after Master J's 22nd birthday) before the 2017 Uni year commences. Exciting times ahead!
*Master J is studying engineering - his shirt defines Engineer as "Someone who does precision guesswork based on unreliable data provided by those of questionable knowledge. See also: wizard, magician". Love it!
**Miss J is studying teaching at the same Uni and has a wide range of interests - but not sport.
