Last week I actually took some photos during the week with the thought of including them in my 1+4 post, Sunday night came around and I was writing a post in my head (as you do), but I’d left it too late. Sunday afternoon/evening was just beautiful and included a nice stroll to the lake and a sit around our chiminea chatting, followed by some family T.V time to break up the study for Miss 17. It simply wasn’t blog writing time.
This morning however I find myself drawn to my blog, thinking about words and pictures and what I want to say. What I want to write for myself in my journal, what goes in our family photo album and what I want to put out into the world via my little blog. Blogging is such a weird thing isn’t it? or is it?
Anyway,what I want to say here is:
- Knowing I wanted to write this post, I paused in my dashing around town this week so that I could show you how pretty it is where I live and so that I can remember the moment.
2. We went to see The Dressmaker. It was so nice to have time with my daughter and go the cinema, just the two of us. Cinema 1 is the old theatre, it’s absolutely huge and you can still see lots of the original features amidst the changes that have been made over the years. It turned out to be a fund raising night for Breast Cancer research,so it was really well attended , predominantly by women, which made for a laughter filled and perhaps tear stained evening (I’m sure I couldn’t have been the only one).
3. They say you never know what is around the corner and on the way home we spotted this baby ring tailed possum in the middle of the road. There were a couple of moments of wondering whether to just move him and leave him for his Mum to find but then we decided it was just too cold and perhaps a cat was lurking around. I knew about Badgar the wildlife rescue service and called them straight away. Luckily for us it took them 45 minutes to arrive, so we could keep him safe and warm and grow quite fond of him. I’m hoping he’s ok and they let us know. We miss the little guy, he was just adorable!
4. Sunday morning was breakfast at a local café, sitting outside in the sunshine feeling content and happy. I had a lovely weekend. My husband was away on his annual “boys weekend” and as awful as it sounds, I really needed some time by myself…. REALLY needed it! I had some time to just fluff around with my creative things, danced around the house a bit with the music blaring, pottered around, spent time with my daughter who has been studying her little heart out and caught up with a good friend to do some more digital scrapbooking ( chat and drink wine).
The good thing was that when my man came home, I was glad to have him back. As we chatted around the chiminea last night about house painting, camping and how well our girls are doing I felt like he is returning a bit more to himself (and me) after a very long and still not over convalescence period. I’m so grateful for that. I have missed him so much!
I hope last week was good to you too. Thanks for reading. If you’re a blogger and you want to do a 1+4 = Life post Isabel is hosting on her great blog Nanjing Nian . If not, I hope you feel inspired to take a few extra snaps of your week, because I think that the little moments that we can capture, can really tell more of our story than all the big celebration type photos can, do you?
