Nearing the end of an emotional year..

This year has been quite something for me, it started with finding out I was pregnant. Then came all the planning to move to Norway and the move itself, then the birth of our daughter... meanwhile back in the UK my Mum's battle against ovarian cancer was taking a turn for the worse. She is still with us, thank goodness, but has now come off of all medication so it is just a matter of time.

I am so thankful that we were able to spend 5 weeks together in Norway when Frøya was born, but, I am sad that we will not be spending Christmas together. Christmas, like most people, was always a very special time of year in my family. I will have very mixed emotions this year as it will be Frøya's first Christmas, but it could be my Mum's last.

I Love You Mum!

and to everybody else, I wish you all the best for the holiday season!

What a year it has been for you.. For all the sadness that you feel right now, you have had a lot of happiness too with the birth of your daughter. Your post brought back a lot of memories with me, good ones and bad ones.. I remember my dad's last Christmas, and his battle with cancer as well.. I spent my Christmas that year in the hospital actually; I spent the night there..

However, through all of it.. Remember that these are the days to cherish, remember, and to be strong about. All of us here have grown up and have come realize that life is pretty amazing, every bit worth fighting for, and every bit worth making the best of out of. Your mother needs you to be strong. The torch is being passed..

I hope that things get better for you, and for your mom.. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.. When my dad passed away, I know I was hurt, sad, but at the same time, I also knew that he was in a much better place, away from the pain and suffering in this world and at what cancer can do..  Spend as much time as you can with her and with your family; I didnt get that chance with my dad... Enjoy what you have now, and keep these memories in your heart...

My Mum passed away earlier today.

Her best friend, who was like an aunt to me, also died earlier this week. It's been a very sad time for us.

We were fortunate to have made a trip to see them both last week, we just arrived back in Norway a week ago today. I am very grateful that I got a chance to say goodbye.

RIP Mum and Cathy

It looks like we will be having a memorial service at the end of this week, so we will be going back to the UK soon. My Mum had Ovarian Cancer and found the charity Ovacome very helpful during her illness.

My sister and I have started a Just Giving page for Ovacome.

Please help us to raise some money for this very worthwhile charity and donate what you can:

Thank you,

It has been a rough couple of weeks, and I haven't been gaming... miss you guys tho, so hope to see you on LIVE soon.

We arrived back in Norway on Monday, after spending 6 days in the UK attending 2 funerals, we were all pretty exhausted.

I have been sick ever since we got home, I have a stinky cold. I got a letter from my Norwegian language school telling me that my course has been changed. I now have to go on Mondays and Wednesdays instead of Tuesday and Thursday, and my first lesson on the new course was on the Monday we arrived back in Norway! As I only got the letter on that day, obviously I didn't go, and then being sick I didn't go yesterday either... and next week the school is closed for Easter, so I am having quite a long break from studying. Probably a good thing as I can't really put my mind to learning anything right now anyway.

Our Just Giving site has now raised well over £800 which is awesome!

Sorry for the lack of news stories etc... but obviously we have been too busy to update the site (not that there is any Burnout news anyway... but still).

We are in the last few weeks of Burnout 3: Takedown being online... and I still do want to play, and will try to organise a game or two before the close down as long as I can get my head together to do that.

Take care, and I hope you all have a good Easter!

And time will heal us all. Love you hunny, Xandu and Baby Burnout princess Froya, I need to find an accent O somewhere?

Patience is something I taught myself, so I never know when it's going to run out? It has and I now have a plan to get it back!
