This life


We’ve been battling the on-again off-again flu this week. It’s like we just can’t seem to kick it. If one of us isn’t sick, the other is. We had a lovely surprise visit with an old friend, breakfasts by the beach, making sand castles and watching baby dolphins play meters away from us in the calm water is a real gift to soothe even the weariest of souls.

We are more or less just plodding along over here. There are big dreams and even bigger plans in the works but time is not on my side at the moment.

This little creature of mine is turning into such a lovely little person – all mothers probably think this, don’t they? She draws and she sings and she blows kisses. When I meet her at daycare she yells out to me and waves goodbye and packs her own bag ready to go. We’ve had our first lay-on-the-floor tantrum in the middle of the shops, which was a suppose a baptism of fire for me in this new life, life with a full blown toddler. Does all of this growing and changing ever slow down? It’s like life is in fast forward. Is anyone else totally amazed that it’s May already?  Summer has come and gone and autumn is making tracks quickly towards winter. The ugg boots have been unearthed from the closet and the gumboots have been purchased (and are now proudly worn for much of the day)… and on we trek, side by side and hand in hand, towards whatever the future has in store for us.

Whatever that is, only time will tell.


Our weekend is full up with a trip to the city and lunch with new friends and meetings and trips to the zoo with family. It’ll be nice to touch base with every one again. It already feels like forever since we’ve seen them all, hiding down here in this little town.

What’s on the cards for you this weekend?

Whatever it is I hope it’s days of calm and joy and love. We all deserve a little time out and a whole lot of laughs.Thanks, as always, for coming along for the ride.
