just for fun

Through the tears of pain, we had to laugh this morning. Over the last 18 months the Lovely One has used every power tool and power saw available and survived relatively unscathed. Then this morning... he sliced through his finger making breakfast. He now sports a few very impressive stitches in his finger all in the name of bacon and eggs!

Fortunately a lovely day at Luna Park, Sydney cheered everyone up.

bush walks and waterfalls

'They say I'm old-fashioned, and live in the past, but sometimes I think progress progresses too fast!' ― Dr. Seuss

It's been a busy eighteen months, sometimes too busy. Time out. It's good.

last days of summer

'I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again." Lewis Carroll

We're back from a long weekend at the beach where we enjoyed what might be the last days of summer. After swimming every afternoon last week, today is cold and rainy and it suddenly feels more like Winter than Autumn. Whilst I'm sad to see the long days end I'm also looking forward to some snug time... oh and perhaps a chance to finish painting the exterior of the house (which I avoided in the summer heat)... sadly sleeping til summer won't be an option.
