I wasn't going to play today, it's kind of hectic here at home with all seven of us trying to find our own holiday fun, bumping into each other, dancing, making things, annoying each other, going slightly stir crazy and generally getting in the holiday mood. To shake/split things up a bit I took Lucy & Sunday to Melbourne for a couple of days. As you can see we went to see the Abba Land exhibition, wow! So Much Fun.
What's that over there? Is it Meet Me at Mikes???
It's so handy to stay at Mum's in Fitzroy when we visit the city. Lots of parks, ace shops and pubic transport. We trammed everywhere which was mainly good but not so great in peak hour, squashy! Bit scary for Sunday.
We had hot chocolate & cake at Laurent in the Causeway Lane for morning tea...
..oh boy we had a great time. I like to try and spend time with all the kids, on their own or with another, it gives us all the space to connect and it's easier to focus on them without the whole gang. I can't wait to have some individual time with the other three sweeties too.
Back at home we have been inside alot, it's been raining on and off for three days now and it has been so cold outside. Rosie has been playing with her many toys, dressing up Bunny and playing Mums & Dads with Sunday.
I finished off two bunnies for lovely Alison from Sydney. She is a joy to make bunnies for, always to encouraging and supportive of my work.
We have been moving a few bits of furniture around to accomodate a new exciting item (more on Sunday) and I now have an official desk!! After years of sitting at a small side table on a children's chair I have graduated to a real, grown ups table! Wow.
I haven't quite finished the space yet but it already has a few of my favourite things, photo's of hte kids, my little bear from Jess , a dear little crocheted blanket and some lovely artwork. This one below always gives me a lift if I'm questioning my parenting, or feeling down.
It's a great place to sit and blog, think, dream and be. I also love it as I can see out the window now, even if it is grey and misty I'm also looking at my favourite cammelia bushes that are bursting with buds. Come on sunshine!
So, are you having a creative day? I'm finally of to Kirsty's to have a look. Hope you are doing something you love, see you soon xo
