So some of the best memories I have with Julie are the ones that come to mind:
I could say anything to Julie and she would just stand there with a little smirk on her face. She taught me to be open and say what was on my mind and did not judge me for it. She was there to listen and throw in advice here and there for whenever I needed it.
Another time when hers and Penny's mother passed away 6 months apart, we decided to have a girls weekend away. Just imagine 4 women walking into a hotel: my mum and Julie myself and Penny who were dragging our feet. There was the manger at the desk working on the computer and as we walked past all you heard were our bottles clinking around in Penny's bag. The manger looked up at us and Penny, Julie and I burst into laughter.
Four years after that we had another girls weekend away. I picked Julie up as Penny was running late as usual and Julie and I were going to meet them down there in Mandurah. As soon as Julie and I got there we thought it was a good idea to crack open a can of bourbon and sit in the boot of our car and drink.
The year after I had left my kids at home with my dad, my son (Jordan) was having friends over and I told him, he had to stay home and not to go out. Being the 13 years old he was at the time he went out anyway. I rang dad to see how the kids were and he told me Jordan was at Mc Donald's. I got off the phone and told them what had happened and Julie said we should ring and play a joke on them, so we came up with this plan that Penny was a psychic and could see that something bad was going to happen to the boys and that they needed to go back home, Julie and I were in stitches rolling around on the ground laughing. Years later Jordan found out it was us.
Those are the fondest memories I have of Julie and though there are many more I could post here I don't want to ramble but I thought I would share some so that those who read this will know she was a character who knew how to have a good time. She will always have a special place in all our hearts and she will be missed too much to put into words.
Love you Jules.
