Firstly, a cute story about this photo. My girl picks flowers on the way home from school for me all the time. The pink one is from her favourite – the Frangipani tree. This tree gives off white and yellow flowers for part of the year and pink the rest of the time. Anyhoo, that was just extra info. Now the other day when she said she picked me this frangipani, I thought it sounded funny. I asked her again, what did you pick for me? A friendship penny she said. At first I said no, it’s a frangipani. And then I said no again and that I loved friendship penny so much more. They will always be friendship pennies from now on. I love this. 🙂 ❤

Playing: Imagine Dragons
Deciding: Whether to go out and do some errands.
Wishing: for too many things at the moment. I think the wish fairy is scanning or blocking my wishes 🙂
Enjoying: Some quiet moments at work to do this.
Waiting: for the weekend. (Yes, it’s only Tuesday, but I’m waiting)
Wondering: how on earth I’m going to achieve all the things swirling in my head.
Loving: some Grey’s Anatomy time. 🙂
Pondering: how to step outside my comfort zones and go out more. (serious introvert)
Considering: buying a new Camera – although I can’t really afford it.
Buying: presents online for my baby boy. He’s 15 in 3 weeks. When did that happen?

Hoping: that Cylone (Nathan) hovering off our coast doesn’t get too much bigger or come much closer. :O
Marvelling: some of my creative friends and the things they accomplish.
Needing: some motivation.

Smelling: Coffee. The boys are brewing up a storm.
Wearing: Work clothes. Black pants, black work shirt…. Boring!
Noticing: the changes in my almost 15 year old. Watching closely to ensure he’s okay. Very quiet and deep this one.

Disliking: people who get angry over such silly things. People who get angry period really.
Opening: Jess (and my) new project life bits and bobs. Soooo pretty.
Giggling: at the silly language my girl and boy have. I swear I can’t understand half the stuff they say to each other sometimes, but they do. They crack each other up. It’s nice.
Feeling: Tired… but happy.
Snacking: Nothing right now, but thinking about having a yummy croissant soon.
Wishing: for my kids to be happy and healthy. It’s pretty much my staple wish.
Excited: about this book I JUST got, but haven’t read yet.
Helping: The boys in this office find things…. Seriously, they are hopeless.
Hearing: Office banter. Several different conversations going and the mind numbing hum of the air conditioning unit in our building. We are on the top floor (7th level) closest to the huge unit on the roof.
And now… for some links. There have been some other great ones I forgot to record, so this is it I’m afraid, but I hope you find something you like. 🙂
Take care. xo
Quick and funny.
This is just… well.. great. And it’s Aussie. 🙂
Documenting Family Life. Some great tips. Now most of the mums I know already do this amazingly well, but it’s always interesting to read others advice and reinforce the message. 🙂
And THIS about story telling, is along the same lines, but such great stuff.
I get this… I have this now.
When you are feeling that you don’t make a difference. You do! (for mums of kids of all ages)
Such a great quote.
I would like to try this. Freelensing.
Beautiful Photos of Motherhood.
It goes so fast. I really get this.
And I was looking for a photo to include at the end and I literally just found this on my phone. Miss Jess and her selfies. I was going to do some editing and thought no… I love this just as it is. 🙂 Bye for now.
