Waves

Here's is my beautiful baby sporting his new FABULOUS Starashan reversible pants!!! Groovy, aren't they?! They have the same wavey material on the reverse side, except in browns...
As seen on the pockets and the folded up cuff! I'm totally in love with these pants, hehehe! They're so him, happy and calm all at one (ok, yes, I'm completely ignoring those times when he screams blue murder like today when he was no longer welcome to wade in the dogs bowl at Leah's and further cover these gorgeous pants in dirt and mud - I quickly rinsed and dried them and mummy-order was restored, but the boy was NOT happy about having to stay inside for the rest of the visit...)...

Bryn is standing is HIS (just ask him!) newest acquisition (I think Liam might have something to say about that one, Bryn...). This booster seat or "chair" as he calls it, has taken pride of place in the middle of the loungeroom floor where he can survey his kingdom and sit and quietly drink the dregs of Dadda's tea...

He said his first proper sentence this morning, and it was all at once a moment of pride and horror for this poor mum, hahaha! I was sitting at the computer chatting to Sherrin or Leah, and Bryn was playing on the floor, or so I thought... I hear him making slight odd sounds just beyond my line of sight on the other end of the table and I said, "What are you doing, Buddhi?" and clear as a bell he says, "I got this!" Uh-oh! "What have you got there?", no response - really what was I expecting??? So I got up and found him knuckle deep in the margarine, have no idea how he got that off the counter - he must be taller than I think! Luckily he was so enjoying the sensation of the margarine that he hadn't taken his hands out of it yet to touch any thing else, so it was simply a matter of gently restraining his wrists and getting the nearest teatowel and wiping the marg of his mitts... LOL, but yep, Luey's first proper sentence (containing subject, verb, object) was "I did it!" and Bryn's was "I got this!"...

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 …
