And I miss you ....


We are back from holidays.
We had a lovely time; seeing Jett play with some other beautiful children made me smile but it also made my heart yearn for Stella.

I really dont know how Im going to be able to cope with missing my girl for the rest of my life, it seems like such a long long time

Family time ....


We are going on a family holiday, yay ! …  so I won’t be around for a week

Please keep sharing this with your friends and talking about it to someone new.
The more we talk the more awareness we'll create.

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us through this amazingly tough journey. From dear friends, to acquaintances and to total strangers, I feel a connection with each and every one of you and can also feel the love that has been sent for our Star and to us.

Give your loved ones an extra cuddle (or ten) today xx 

Much love, Chels xx

Yesterday I received an email from a great friend, saying she had organised a event to raise money for the Mitochondrial Foundation in Stella's name ! Wow !
Thanks so much to Ang at Pamp Ur Pooch and to her partner Brad, who have been friends of ours for a very long time.

Below are the details of the morning:

Please find the event on Facebook here : Dogwash and Family Day FB Event


 Many of you know about Stella’s story and what an amazing star she is. For those of you that don’t Stella was born with a rare condition called mitochondrial disease which is a life threatening condition. At just 23 months of age beautiful Stella had fought as much as she could and passed. Stella amaz......ed so many people with her strength and determination through all of her journey and it is easy to see where she got it from.... her amazing family.
This debilitating disease affects so many families in so many different ways and there is no cure at this point in time. Please come and support this fundraiser to not only raise money for research but to raise awareness of this disease. Let’s all get together and spread the word!
With much needed help a cure can be found and stop families in the future from going through a heart breaking journey like this one.

Sat 4th of Feb
The Spit Gold Coast

Time: 8am - 2pm

There will be:
Dog wash
Sausage Sizzle
Jumping Castles
Face Painting
Silent Auction

So bring the hound and the kids for a great family day out. For those of you that don’t know there is a dog beach at this location so they can have all the sandy and salty fun in the world than get a nice wash before the car trip home.
Please note that ALL money from this day (not just profit) will be donated to the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation to help for future research.
If anyone would like to donate items for the silent auction it will be appreciated very much.

Please phone or email Angela 0412 531 705 or if you need anymore information or think you can help.

Thanks so much, hope to see you all there.

Peekaboo Auction for Stella x

Today Peekaboo magazine  is holding an online auction on Facebook (  Peekaboo Magazine Brisbane FB Page ) with all proceeds going directly to us....

What a lovely thing to organise and thank you so so much to all the great businesses who have donated such beautiful items and another massive thank you to all the bidders.

We love you all.


It's getting very tight here at the moment with Scott not having worked since November and us only receiving the disability payment so this boost of cash will really help with everyday living and hopefully also help us to create some fun and happy memories as we head in to a new year  xxxx

Please go on over and check it out - everything in the album is truly gorgeous !!

Happy Birthday my Princess


I miss you today, I'll miss you always
I will ache forever in my heart for you Stella

I do try imagining you smiling and laughing. Through my tears the thought makes me smile.
Anything and everything I do, I think of you, say hello and carry on.

Today you turn 2 years old - you should be here with me.

I can however feel you around me, and see you in Jett.

You chase those butterflies my Sweet x
