Noodle- farewell my little one

Yesterday I lost my beloved pet budgie noodle. He passed away during the night after a sudden illness. He was my good friend and will be missed dearly. Noodle was a very special part of our little family for close to 8 years and provided an endless supply of joy to myself and my husband. He really was a wonderful pet I still can't believe he is gone. Andrew often said I loved Noodle more than him and although this is not true he was loved immensely. I will miss him and all his cute antics, low flying across the room, singing his little songs, his little birdie cuddles & kisses, keeping me company while I work, chasing his little bird friend across the kitchen bench, pooping everywhere, eating any and every bit of paper, talking to the hairdryer, the toaster, the kettle, spoons, walls, lamps, anything really, he was such a chatty happy little fellow and always a loving friend.

When tomorrow starts without me,
and I'm not there to see,
the sun will rise and find your eyes,
all filled with tears for me.

I know how much you loved me,
as much as I loved you.
And each time you think of me
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand,
an angel came and called my name
and I stepped up on her hand.

She said my place was ready
in bird heaven far above,
but that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.

If I could relive yesterday
even for a little while,
I'd fly over and kiss you
just to see you smile.

So when tomorrow starts without me
don't think we're far apart,
for every time you think of me
I'm right there in your heart.

Thankyou Daz for this beautiful poem.

a bloody long way

I have left my bloggin boots under the bed for the last few weeks and its time to drag them out again. A group of friends and I achieved a small milestone yesterday and completed out first half marathon. Congrats to all who ran! It was definitely a tough 21.1kms for me and although at the 15km mark I remember thinking I would never do this again I am fairly positive I will start training for another event soon. I guess I must be a glutton for punishment, blisters and sore legs!
