Time to relax

This weekend Cherub is turning 6!! How did that happen? It didn't feel that long ago when I was taking her to speech therapy appointments and practising her homework....now she's in Kindy reading her home readers to me! It really goes by too fast!

Mmm yummy cupcakes
Cherub was very excited today, as she took cupcakes her and Daddy made to school to share with her class and Kindy friends.

We've had a very busy few weeks with so many things happening at school - book parade, dance festival, walk-a-thon, and basketball gala day, so I am looking forward to a nice break. I also started my own little business in August so have been busy working on content for its website which I am hoping to launch in October.

L to R: Walking together at walk-a-thon, Popette getting ready for dance rehearsals,
Cherub finally riding her bike without training wheels, and book parade costumes.
I think it's finally caught up with me, as I have been ill for the past few days, I'm hoping I get over it quickly as we are on school holidays as of tomorrow and (hopefully! go away bug!) will be going camping for 10 days. Cherub is very excited as she gets to spend her birthday waking up in a tent! She keeps reminding me to not to forgot to pack her presents!!! As if! I can't wait to spend time with my Hubby and munchkins, and to sit back and relax, looking up at the stars, roasting marshmallows, bushwalking and enjoying the outdoors.
I hope you enjoy your break whatever you are doing! I'll be back after the holidays :)

Being grateful: Spring

I am grateful for the sunny afternoons and that Springtime is finally here! Apart from allergies causing me to sneeze and my nose run, I love Spring, it's a beautiful time of year where I live in the Blue Mountains. We have some beautiful flowers budding in our front garden, and in the backyard our plum tree has bloomed like crazy attracting different birds. I am grateful for our back deck, which is a lovely spot for me to paint while watching the girls play in the sandpit or jump on the trampoline.

Its also a great spot to enjoy a coffee and watch the birds in our tree.

We have had some beautiful Rosellas, Lorikeets and King Parrots (not pictured) visit our yard this year.

While I love our logfire, its nice that winter has nearly left us. We enjoyed a delicious Father's day lunch together on our back deck, and can't wait for daylights saving, so we can have more dinners outdoors.

What's your favourite season? What are you grateful for?
