Winter Woolies!

Time for something a bit more warm and fuzzy, quite literally!

Here's Bryn wearing a jacket I bought for him at the Kids and Babies market last Sunday for $3. I know, it's very pink, but isn't it LOVELY. and doesn't his skin just GLOW in it??? He's also sporting some knitted cargo pants by Katy at Knitterbug - I LOVE these, and was so excited when it was cold enough this morning to put them on!

And one more pic, just because he is sooooo gorgeous!

And Amanda, these are for Laurent! I know you didn't ask for a hat, but I just wanted to (and if you don't like it, it's looks great on Bryn, hehehe!

Jen, these are the pants I started at your place yesterday morning, finished them this morning, and did the hat this afternoon and this evening (in between EVERYTHING else we mums have to do, hahaha)...

OMG they're GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to put them on him... they're the perfect shade and tone to go with the goldenrod sweater, the cream cable one and the brick-red jacket I got L at the market the other day!!! *sqeeks* Thank you so much for the hat also! I'm going to have to have him wear it to the flower and garden show, he'll look like a little sprout in green! :-) :-) :-)

(I still can't believe how fast you are... I'd started a hat for L this morning and I'm on, like the 15th row of the brim! LOL Pants and a hat would take me *mumble mumble* months...X_X')

Looks like Bryn has decided the fur trim on his hood isn't so bad after all! I reckon the bright shade of pink on the fur actually is the best shade on him, or the orange, moreso than the lighter pinks. JMO tho of course!

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 …

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 …

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 …
