Yearly Archives: 2012

we are away on holiday

in a tiny town on the coast of south africa

up until today I was not sure what date it is

and i have to look to the top right of my screen to know that it is monday

a real holiday

almost no screen time

just enough to almost keep on top of the many, many photos I am taking

new years eve

always makes me quite reflective

on the year we’re in

and one that starts tomorrow

my endings and beginnings post this time last year

was a lot about making the most of your life and your time

both my children will be at big school next year

no more kindy

no more lunch at the sushi train on a thursday just because we can

my week days feel wide open, in a slightly scary way

my maternal instincts are aching for my babies that are big boys now


embracing change

feeling grateful



happy new year to you

with love


i really wish we celebrated thanksgiving

then today instead of folding laundry and tidying my study

i would have been roasting turkey and making cranberry sauce from scratch

just like Oprah (i follow her on instagram!)

remember this thanksgiving post from last year

wow how the kids have grown

what a wonderful year it has been

so much love

so much laughter

so much to be so very, very thankful for

this year i am trying to be good about getting family photos

once a month is a bit of tall ask according to husband

but i try

this was November’s attempt

(before he shaved all his hair off)

nothing picture perfect

no-one taking this very seriously

in our backyard, on our partially completed deck

with bolts and nuts and drills dotted around the place

camera on a tripod, a 5 year old neighbour ‘pressing the button’ for me

not perfect

but perfectly us

the us

I am so thankful for


i love what i do


look at this precious newborn baby boy

welcome to the world little man

you have no idea how much you are
