on my way

Almost time to leave tonight for a short solo trip to Melbourne for a dear friends birthday and to catch up with my lovey brother. My daughters sudden high temperature made my happy go luck step falter a little this morning and I began to wonder if I should leave her while she is feeling so poorly. But she has now perked up a little and I keep reminding myself that she will be happy with her dad and big sister while I am away and that it really is OK to miss one fever out of the many we have shared together. Let me know about your favourite Melbourne Haunts. So far Meet Me at Mikes and the NGV Vienna exhibition are on the card.

winter spring

Blossoming jasmine, magnolia and wattle, letting us know spring is close. Cuttings of jasmine by the front door and in the bedrooms. Sweet and woody smelling wattle - natures pom poms growing down by the river.

miss you

My daughter woke this morning to the sound of our lovely neighbours across the way moving out of their house. We have exchanged promises to visit, ah, but we still miss them dearly.

My daughter draws many pictures on the paint program. I am sure this one only took minutes to create but it has all of her flair and sense of composition.
