seriously – is this much rain normal?? I realise the country has been in drought for years, but has it always rained this often in the city? The rare days without seem to slip by so quickly… And I wake most morning to the torrent trying to wash our house down the hill….
Boys are hard work. Seriously…
So my boy moments seem to stand out a little bit more…
A notification from Instagram – boy child number 1 – a tag he’s drawn for me! A nice pic. Just for me. This seems so simple… But I’d one of those monumental moments. He gives very little of himself… So these moments matter.
Boy child number 2 – a lost tooth and a cheeky grin! He raced in to show me it dangling in his mouth… A flick of his tongue and he spat it in my hand… Ummm… Yay? :p
i dreamed last night… I dream most nights… A thousand thoughts. A thousand possibilities.
But last night, the dream was so simple…
Someone put a warm blanket around my shoulders. I was cold. The weight of the blanket. The warmth seeping in.
How do you describe the sensation. The simple act. Of someone. An unknown entity. Putting a blanket over my shoulders.
The simplest act of love… And I was surprised… Stunned… Unaccustomed to someone ever looking out for me…
Why is it 12:30 AM and I am helping my teenager with English homework? Lucky I like Othello….
People do not understand that I am leaving… That I am already saying goodbye…
7, 8 and 9 are connected
12 and 13
Just need the ones in between…
But it’s coming together… Gradually… Can’t quite see the picture yet though
Tonight was hard. I was hell bent against it. Too far out of my comfort zone. Massive anxiety setting in. Flight mode well and truly ignited.
Then the 9 year old said – why don’t you just quit???
And I knew I couldn’t… I couldn’t teach her that it’s okay to quit if things are a little tough.
I want them to know it’s okay to step outside your comfort zone. In fact, I want that to be something they think is mandatory.
But it all worked out for the best in the end… Dots 12 and 13 connected. Blowing my own trumpet, but I absolutely smashed it tonight. Rubbed it in the noses of the naysayers. Sold my ice to the Eskimos and had them walk away a little bit in love with me 😉
Exhausted success 🙂
That odd moment when two of your exes become friends on social media….
