Today....I am Perfect!


Today I am PERFECT!

Today I have slept in but still managed to get Master 4 to kinda on time......with no yelling HURRY UP AND EAT!.......

Today I managed to find the "Murray" skivvy for him to wear to kinda....(red)...it was washed and folded and waiting in his drawer.......

Today I sprayed his hair with a smelly, natural nit deterrent and prayed to the nit God that he doesn't get any of the horrid things in his hair as they are currently doing the rounds of kinda...... (much to his disgust!)

Today I drove to kinda without breaking the speed limit.........

Today I smiled nicely to other kinda mums and made conversation....even though I still had bed hair and was wearing yesterdays clothes.......

Ready for kinda
Today I have fed a hungry girl.....such a messy eater!.....

Today I sung songs for princess 6 months.....just to see her smile.......

Today I have played peek-a-boo and "clap hands clap hands" 100 times .....just to hear her laugh.......

Today we have read "where is baby?".......just once...... before she chewed the edges......

Today I have sat with her and patted her to sleep......

Today......I watched her little face as she slept in my arms.......

Today.......I am Perfect.

Such a messy eater!

I have put a load of washing on......
Made the beds........
And even remembered to get meat out of the freezer for tea.....
I have only been out of bed 2 and a half hours!

Today.....I am Perfect....

living next door to Alice....part 2

I'm still trying to find my way around this blogging thing....it's not as easy as you think.
Part 1 of "living next door to Alice" got interrupted last night when I clicked on the wrong thing......

......I had lots to say about the magical heart of Australia, Uluru.........but maybe I'm just supposed to post pictures.....I know how to do that!! lol.........lets see how this one goes.....

Walking around the base of Uluru...me with red dirt all over my face

Uluru had changed alot since I was there last, way back when I was in year 11.....many lifetimes ago it seems now.
It is no longer the right thing to do to climb the rock....although thousands of tourists still do.....It is frowned upon by the traditional owners of the land.....and they are trying to pass a law to say that you can't, although it hasn't gone through yet.

We walked around the base of the rock....well most of it anyway....it's a big rock after all and we had a 2 1/2 year old with us. I don't know how we did it but we managed to be the only people there when we explored the rock....it seemed to make it more magical....like the rock was ours.
It was beautiful.....peaceful and quiet.
All alone in the Centre of Australia....except for the 50million flies!

We found the secrets women's business "fertility cave" and after having two misscarridges during the past year, we made sure we stopped at this special place and rubbed the red dirt into our skin. It's supposed to increase your fertility........and although we felt rather silly at the time, we did it anyway....just in case.

Waterhole at the base of Uluru
Although it was more tourist driven  than I remembered, there was still a feeling of being alone. Maybe it's because it's in the middle of no-where!

I'm hoping this blog works and I've worked out how to post it properly ......and that the settings have gone back to normal and people can now "follow" me.
Thanks for reading.

Travelling through Australia, part 1..........Living Next Door To Alice.......

I have been in the mood to write another blog for a few days now, but.....hmm what to write about?
Usually I write letters to my children, but with Steve away on tour I'm a solo mum at the moment.....It's a struggle to find positive things to say about them........except, I'm glad they are both finally in bed asleep!

With Steve touring much of Australia each year for his work, we are blessed to be able to join him at some of the most beautiful places this country has to offer.
Uluru has to be near the top of the list!!
What a magic feel the whole place has.....so majestic, standing there like the beating heart of Australia, looming out of  red dirt that goes on forever......you can't help but feel reverence and just a bit awestruck by the power of the rock......now that sounds soppy and a bit sentimental....but it's true.



Full Moon Over Uluru





They say that once you feel the red dirt between your toes, you get a love for the land that stays with you forever
