Well that was quite a break!
We've had a brilliant summer.
something happened that rocked my world..
My friend's daughter had an accident and is in Starship (children's hospital)
with a broken body
There is still a bit of hope she could walk again,
but for now she is learning to live a very different kind of life, with no feeling from her chest down.
I just didn't feel like blogging.
Out of respect.
Plus I'm overwhelmed with sadness and awe,
blown away by what my friend and her girl (and the rest of the family)
have been forced to go through.
But here I am.
And life is going on.
And blogging will now recommence..
..Although this continues to occupy my mind a lot, and love and strength are being sent out and up to Starship from me and so many others..
I feel incredibly lucky.
In no particular order:
WE HAVE BEEN...
|At 'our' amazing beach. (I haven't photo- shopped this!!! The colours were amazing)|
|Quite possibly my fav beach photo.|
|Been hanging at home quite a lot.|
|Been room re-arranging|
(This type of things takes SUCH a long time with my bunch of kids. Epic)
|Been ticking things off our Summer-List-of-Things-to-do.|
Lemon Meringue Pie - check.
|Been watching |
|Been packing/unpacking the car. Sans trailer! I.n.s.a.n.e.|
and hanging out with cousins. Gold.
|Lemonade Stand - check.|
|Just hanging out together.|
|Been to 'the mount' ..|
|So here I am.|
And I'll be catching up on blogs - looking forward to it...
And I DO have op shop posts to share.. hopefully soon.
Hope you're all happy and healthy .
