Cobwebs disturbed

Cobwebs disturbed, bumble bees confused. Fresh gusts of mountain wind feel their way through the heart. A three year old refusing to wear clothes, showering in the cool rain. Two toddlers poke and prod each other. One testing another. A yellow bus with a ghost driver fly across a wooden deck. Destructive boys momentarily distracted... Continue Reading →

Live simply

A busy morning. Two boys to organise. Mother feeling tired, looking forward to a break. Spirited Sister and a miscommunication arrive. Argument erupts. Tension in the air, children absorb. Car packed, air lighter. Another trip south. Rest, in a busy lobby, people and their baggage offload. Arrival of a friend, a friend that knows. So much... Continue Reading →

Mountain rain

Rain covers an ever changing mountain face. A change of mood cast upon the land. A trip to a country town. A land of miniatures to be sure. Tiny houses and giant sheep in fields of green. A little boy wearing socks on his hands, why protest, just let him be. A warm kiss farewell... Continue Reading →

The Kings Seat

A picnic for the hordes. A grass table under a sky-scraping tree. Children play amongst the green hills, tempted to places of danger. Laughing contagious, food devoured, toddlers disobey. A visit to an elf house. Hobbit's feel at home. A peer through a glass pavilion with a story to tell.  Energetic cousins rest on a bench...

Woodstock

Monday, 15 July 2013 Waking up to a cranky boy in need of a good run. Expend that boundless energy. A quick picnic is packed, sisters asked, both decline recovering from a 40th blowout. Car is loaded with boys and equipment. Taking off feeling melancholic and frustrated. Drive the windy country roads slow down for... Continue Reading →

A lazy day

  Awakened by soft tickles from little hands. A lazy day, pyjamas until midday. A visit from a younger sister, boy whisked away. Time alone with sleeping babe. Quiet. Return of a soaked and dirty happy boy. Invite for dinner. Mamo comes home a friend in tow. Dinner a success boys become a mess. Sisters gather children chatter.... Continue Reading →

The simple things

Tuesday, 16 July 2013 A walk by the river Barrow with baby boy in sling and the little boy holding Mamo's hand. Stone throwing, simple entertainment for a busy boy. Songs cuddles and kisses with littlest one. A near miss with a big truck, jelly legs and beating heart. Dinner and catch up with eldest... Continue Reading →

Late night party

Sunday, 14 July 2013  Driving home in the dark night, sleeping bundle, fox eyes glowing in the distance, smell of pig slowly cooking in the air. Home to sleeping babes, little voices talking in the night, mind racing sleep eventually falls. Awake to Summer of sunshine and gold, bottle, nappies, breaky, cuddles. Relieved by sitter,...

Recovery and preparation

Saturday, 13 July 2013 Recovery from excitement of day before. Preparation for chaos to come. Dressing up feeling good. Packing packing driving dropping settling. Sleeping Angels. Greeting guests, long time no see cousins. Music, wine, chat and food. Bundle packed into car, admiring ohh's and ahh's by drunken hordes. Try to get some rest for... Continue Reading →
