    The Festive Season

    SHOW NOTES - Episode 9 The Festive Season

    As Season 1 of Single Sisters wraps up like Christmas presents, Caz does an awesome job capturing snippets of the last few months and all that has been happening in our lives.

    Christmas is just around the corner and the Single Sisters discuss their family traditions as well as how it feels to face the festive season as singles and reiterate for our listeners “you are never alone” as long as we are here.

    We reflect on the past year, but more importantly the decade that was as we prepare to leave it behind us, well actually it can well and truly “eff off”! There has been deaths, separations, divorces and too many moves as well as other life changing events to many to count to be honest. But the Single Sisters got through it and are ready for a great year and decade ahead.

    Merry Christmas, Happy holidays, however you chose to celebrate the season Jo and Caz wish you a great one and will be back with more adventures, stories and laughs in 2020.

    Ps Paying tribute to all the firefighters doing an incredible job fighting the fires in NSW and across Australia. We as a family are donating and if you are able, we urge you to check with your local brigade and see what you can do to help.

    Part 2 - The Grief & Loss

    Part 2 - The Grief & Loss

    The Single Sisters continue their move from the beloved Abode on Ardy to the Manor on McMahon, but they find time for a well earned break and take a casual drive 47km to Kmart for some shopping.  While this proved disappointing the Bakehouse Pie did not.  Every last crumb was enjoyed before embarking on our trip home and the recording of this episode.  

    Caz & Jo debrief on what has been a whirlwind couple of months starting with the recording of an Australian TV news program interview telling the story of Jo's son, Josh and the lovable larrikin he was before his sudden death, and how she has dealt with the Anniversary month coinciding with so many other life events this year.  While grief, loss and stress is a very important and serious subject, and the Single Sisters have certainly had their fair share of these emotions in the past & present, we try to embrace it all in the way we both know best, light hearted humour and lots of random chatting.  And Caz reveals what has helped her the most over the last few weeks in-between packing up her possessions, and trying to recover from her surgery.

    Our hope is that in sharing our experiences, the great, the funny, the sad and the bad, that you or someone you care about might be able to take something away from our chats.
