Hair...

Geez, it took five attempts to get this photo to show up!

Anyway, I posted this pic for two reasons - 1. my blog has been very bland lately because I have to use Dh's computer and my camera isn't compatible with his boat anchor computer - besides which, he probably doesn't even have enough memory on here to store a bunch of my photos, and 2. because I've been having these "visions" of my baby looking a little like this...

By, like this, I mean the long, very dark hair... Realistically, I'm NOT going to have a baby with long, dark, dark hair like this. Erik had short, brown hair when born, enough to cover his head, but not enough to call it long. Luey had hair the colour of spun gold, he often *looked* bald, but he definitely wasn't, it was just the colour. Bryn was like Erik, lighter, if anything, still brown, but with red highlights, I guess...

So, why would I have a baby with long, basically black hair???

My dad has black hair. It's red black, not blue black, but definitely black. He is the only one of his siblings with black hair, the rest were variants of brunette, red (auburn, not golden) and blonde... I guess, maybe, he set a precedant???

Anyway, I thought I'd document this, *JIC*, I kept having visions of Luey with a golden halo around his head, and that turned out to be right... I'm not really expecting this to be right, it would be another freak of nature, LOL, like Luey... But maybe, just maybe...

Oh when are you due again??? it's before Nov isn't it??
Just wondering because my girls looked very much like that (well when they came home from hospital anyway) lots of dark hair that was a real surprise to us... and then there was Muski - born the same day as Luey and with the same blonde blonde hair.....

Yes, I think if there is anything I like about pregnancy (and to be honest, there isn't a lot, rofl), then it's the anticipation of waiting to meet this new little person (see, knowing the sex is really just the tip of the iceberg, there is so much more to a baby than their sex, so many surprises in store!!!)...

Kate, Leo is "due" October 17th-ish, but if he goes 14 or so days over - not unrealistic for me, he'll be a November baby, rofl, and if he goes that far over, he might well have long hair, if not black hair!!!

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 …
