It seems I’ve recently taken an unexpected break from blogging. This was for no particular reason other than a lack of urge to blog and a simple enjoyment of family life. Since my last post this is what’s happened…..
We spent a lovely couple of weeks at our favourite beach getaway in southern NSW. I re-introduced myself to the boogie board, not something I’ve done for about fifteen years. I had so much fun!! I was SO exhausted afterwards. I rediscovered muscles unused for many years. It was worth it. The kids had a blast at the beach and the pool and the park and the cinema and the arcade (rainy days called for a bit of old-school arcade gaming – also surprisingly fun for the adults involved).
We came home to enjoy the last couple of weeks of the school holiday and try to reign in the juggled-like vegetable patch. The tomatoes are very slow to ripen (not enough hot weather) but the zucchinis are going completely mad. Beans and strawberries are coming quickly too.
Miss Five start school, heading off for her first day of prep hypo-ventilating with excitement. Week two and she was still busting out the door to get going and was the first one there this morning. She loves it, she loves her teacher (her appraisal was that she’s better than Miss Honey from Matilda, high praise indeed) and she is being quite the little sponge. Let’s hope she can keep it up.
Miss Three started three year old Kinder and one day a week at daycare.
And I have been trying to find some work, a frustrating process to date.
All in all we’ve been busy, life is changing and things are good, really good. So what’s new in your world?
