Nearly a month has passed since my birthday. How time flies! I'd love to say its because I was having fun...but its boring...I've been sick. For nearly a month. Its been through us all. Me, 3 times. So I do plan on blogging again soon...I'm just sick. Urgh.

I fly to Perth for a family holiday on Thursday. We'll be there for 8 days. I'm hoping the sunshine will seep into my soul and replenish me so I can come home refreshed, healthy and ready to spring clean my house...and perhaps my life. If I have any left over energy.

Holiday pics to come. The pic above is of a quilt I'm trying to finish. Slowly, slowly. It's really quite relaxing work and about as much as I can handle right now. x

Father's Day 2010

We read through the book several times. S was captivated by all the possible reasons that she could love her Daddy. By the fifth re-read request she was reciting it with me.

Then we wrapped Daddy's gift in a piece of her artwork. Well, she wrapped it...with me hovering like a control freak.

We snuck into our bedroom to wake up Daddy (they were too excited to allow a sleep in) and he sleepily enjoyed our squeals and hugs and kisses.

S helped him unwrap his present and then proceeded to read it to him using the pictures as cues for why she loves her daddy. The Big Fella was astonished and I, just a little bit proud.

Is crawled up for some kisses too. 

We then headed to my brothers house to celebrate my nephews 6th birthday. All my family were there which makes for a happy me.


Happy fathers day to you my love. You know what you mean to us - we told you all the why's of loving you in the book S read to you. Happy Days. x
