One afternoon this past week my boy came running into my bedroom as I rested having just finished watching play school to proudly announce that when he grew up he was going to be a spaghetti maker. Later in the week he was beside himself with joy, proclaiming as he held his hand to his brow “I just can’t believe my eyes” after his father borrowed a book filled with pasta recipes from the local library. He can be so overwhelmingly adorable at times. Tonight he made his first spaghetti. It was delicious.

Not much. We’ll it feels like not much anyhow but I suppose I have been hosting my little virgo. The heat in Perth this summer has been ridiculous and knocked me around quite a bit. Lots of swimming, lots of cold showers, and lots of watching DVDs slothing on the couch. Just in the past couple of weeks I’ve watched seasons six of both Weeds and Entourage and I have also watch the mini-series Little Dorrit.
I’ve been watching all the awful news events on the tele too. The Japanese tsunami, the Christchurch earthquake, the Perth bushfires, the civil war in Libya, and more. More than once I have found myself in tears and at times overwhelmed with melancholy – this world in which we live can be so harsh. No sense, no reason. It can get me down. Sometimes it even makes me scared. Maybe I’m just hormonal. It makes it hard for me to blog though – the bits and pieces in my life seem so insignificant and trivial in the face of such catastrophe.

My partner went back to work today. He’d just had two and a half weeks rec. leave. We had the most wonderful time – a beautiful way to see out the last of summer. It was so lovely to spend time together, and as a family.
We celebrated our 14th anniversary. He gifted me this most delightful ring made by the out of this world talented Christina. We managed to make it out for our once a year date-night – but kept it low key just seeing the film The King’s Speech since I’m so tired all the time. Even so we had a splendid evening together.
We also packed up the kids and headed on down to Margaret River for five days. Brilliant. The holiday we all needed. So much fun.
went to lots of beaches
…and now it is back to the ‘real’ world.
