Catching Up

This is a painting my son did for me in the School Holidays. I was with him when he was doing it and it was great seeing him work out the different things he wanted to do. Although I'm not teaching anymore, (I'm trained as a primary teacher) I had to stop myself from trying to give him ideas or direct him. That would have just stiffled his creativity. I love how it turned out - its something to treasure.

I can't believe its almost the end of October. I haven't posted for awhile as I've been busy with school holidays, work, etc.

Its my son's 8th Birthday tomorrow - time has flown. Last year he had a Halloween Birthday party but this year he's not having a party. We are just taking him out to an indoor Play Centre for the morning and he wants to have lunch there as well.

I have some big news - (no I'm not pregnant). I'll leave you in suspense until my next post but I'll give you a little hint. I'm doing something really exciting that I've wanted to do for a long time and since I'm turning 45 in December this year I decided it was about time to do it!!!!!!

Spring has Sprung!

Its beautiful seeing all the flowers blossoming. This is a new hanging pot of Petunias that I got. I also have a purple one. I was just sitting it in the wooden planter box until we could hang it. They have really brightened up our outdoor area.

Some big news - I'm a Nanna!!! My step daughter had a baby last week. Its a little boy and they have named him Flynn. Its good that they have moved closer to us. They're only an hours drive away now, so we'll get to see them lots.

Also my 7 year old son is excited to be an Uncle!!!
