Bubbles in the Winter Sun

On a cold, sunny winter’s day, what could be more fun than rugging up in jackets and Red Bands, and chasing bubbles in the sun?

A Sad Case of Neglect

Um…..did you guys know that it’s almost July??! Surely I can’t be the only one for whom this year is flying past like a high-speed passenger train??!

I’ve been waiting for things to slow down, for our weekends to be completely free, for hibernation to begin…..but it hasn’t. I’m not complaining; busy days means the winter will go by much more quickly, but I haven’t quite caught my breath from the madness that was summer yet.

The first few months of this year were full of Tiny finishing kindy and starting school, Pickle starting kindy, and birthday party after birthday party. Pickle came with me on a trip to Fiji for the wedding of one of my best friends, and a week after we got back, Tall was working in Thailand for a fortnight. There were more birthday parties, the school cross country, floods and frosts, a visit from Tall’s sister, and a visit to Tall’s sister…..and now the end of Term Two approaches which means playdates and adventures and Lego all over the floor.

What this also translates to is a bit lot of blog neglect. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day to hang washing, cook dinner, drop kids off at various educational institutes, exercise, eat, vacuum up rice bubbles and then actually sit down for more than five minutes at a time. However, this week sees the P starting two longer sessions at kindy, which might mean I can spend a little bit more time doing this: drinking coffee and blogging.

Life. Getting in the way of a good blog post since forever.
