by the allure

31st July, 2008

What is one to do on a cold day in Winter? Curl up with a book, meet a friend for coffee, have a long soak in the tub?

Or chase two rascally rabbits, summoned by the allure of thick, shiny, glistening mud, out of puddles all morning. Well of course... what would you do?

thanks Jo for the pics & your company x

Learning, growing, discovering & loving....

My Sweet P just mentioned casually to me that this was the first song he ever learnt to play on guitar ~ Crowded House - Better Be Home Soon 
Still learning, growing, discovering & loving after 9 years. 
It brings me joy.

He doesn't like this pic but I love it :0

as usual (at last)

19th July, 2008

Auntie Char spent Friday night making vodkas & Mama spent Saturday pouring glasses of water. The rest shall remain untold. Except to say that as usual (at last) we had a wonderful time of laughing & learning & loving. Thanks baby char char for your energy, your spirit & your company. Counting down the days till LM.

the sun shines

14th July, 2008

The sun shone today... all day. Such joy abounds. Digging, planting, running, laughing & harvesting.

Check out our booty ~

& the bunny impersonation ~ 

love it :)

tumbling down

Block building has begun.... 

& even the building he is doing himself.

It doesn't last long though, before they all go tumbling down...

but occasionally this brings concern rather than delight, which brings much delight to the Mama who looks forward to the many creations & imagination which are soon to follow...

Oh little man of mine. So many things have been happening in our little world of late. Many changes, many milestones, many challenges & many expectations on you. I am sorry. It has been too much. You have coped so remarkably well. We commented often, your papa & I, on how well you were coping, on how you are such a big boy now. On how you were ready, and you were to a certain degree. I am sorry I didn't listen close enough when you told me you'd had enough. I'm thankful for how well you have handled my absences. I am sorry you've had to meltdown to regain my full attention. Well little bunny, you have it now. I'm back on board for as long & as much as you need me to be. & next time, when you're ready we'll take things a little slower, you & me. Together. 
x Mama.

gorgeous babes

7th July, 2008

This is terrible really. This space is supposed to be for the adventures of Little M & his entourage. Not little ol' me. But at the moment, things are very busy, light is very poor in our sun starved house & little M is not keen on the camera or on Mama being on the computer. So here is another brief post for Georgie Pie Photography... 

Meet the divine Miss A ~ 5 days old & as adorable & relaxed 
as her gorgeous folks ('see shucks').

& another gorgeous babe whose equally gorgeous Mama wanted some baby announcement cards. What do you think of the card design?
