It’s been a whirlwind few months. New house, new neighbourhood and new kids activities. With it all came a wake up call and a new perspective.
Working full time is rough sometimes. So many days I wish I was at the school gate or on canteen duty or there to take her to ballet at 3.30 in the afternoon. Life comes in seasons and while we are in this fulltime family season I want to do something for me and for my little one.
I have been putting off pouring my heart into my side projects for so many years I just feel sad when I see them. Not anymore. You only reap what you sow and I have been sowing so many exciting little seeds. I can’t wait to share it all soon.
So it’s been almost a week since we lost our home to flooding from a hot water system and we’re holding up ok. The in-laws took us in and have been a wonderful source of support through this. But living out of suitcases on the floor is not a long or even short term solution and I’ve started house hunting. I did not expect to fall in love with the second place I inspected but no one ever expects to fall in love with anyone/thing. We’ll see how our application pans out.
Today however is a glorious Saturday to be enjoyed. There’s the most beautiful little cafe just a stone’s throw from here so I’ve got my hipster-mummy-Sydneysider coffee fix for the day.
It’s heading up to 30C but Little Lottie is bundled up in a beautiful yellow hand knitted jumper her grandmother got her. I gave her a floppy straw hat before she went on her walk with her grandparents (she was awfully upset that she couldn’t find the hat with the flowers on it) and she told me, “I am a happy sunshine now! Let’s go to the park!”.
Yes, you are a happy ray of sunshine my dear girl. Never change.
