More pics from today...

Went over to Jayne's today for an aromatherapy party... Tried to get some shots of all the kids there... I found out it's harder to take decent photos of kids you don't know particularly well... Which is why I got plenty of my kids and Jayne's kids, but proportionately less of the other kids (I have them, just don't feel like showing them off)...

OMG Sif!!!! They are STUNNING! Thank you so much for taking these, I am so lucky to have friends with such cool cameras and great photography skills! (impatiently awaiting Amanda and Nic's photos as well!! ;-) ) Could you please email those to me? I *HAVE* to scrap that first one of Liam and the ones of Sienna in the garden and bath! You have a very perceptive eye for photography, and will go far I'm sure! The pics of Bryn and Laurent are also, stunning-how could they not be with all of our kids as models!?!

I agree with hipbubbymama - these are amazing! I love them so much! I am under some pressure now for tomorrow with hipbubbymama!

Hopefully she will post some of Amanda and Nic's pix on her blog!

Stunning photos Sif, have to agree with what Jayne and Juniper said! Especially the third one of Sienna, the lighting looks like a magazine shot or something! Love the one of Laurent and the warm shot of Bryn eatting the cracker just below it too! Would you be able to e-mail me the file for L?

Oh how beautiful is Sienna? I've never seen a proper clear photo of her. What a little munchkin! :)

ROFL, Amanda, the power of curves, that's all I'll say about the colours in the second shot of Sienna :)...

Can you send me a quick email, I don't have you in my address book :)...

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
