It's time.

It's feijoa season. The first few have been dropping off our tree for the last few days.
Hub's has been all over them.

This year, I'll preserve some from our regular spot.

Friday - Saturday

Cat Boy! (PJ Mask plug)

With Aunty Hubs.

She doesn't know how to APA Reference .... but she's studying anyway.

Hub's & Kavarny.
They told me they were bored today, so I made them move wood from one side of the shed to the other side of the shed.
Tell me you're bored again!!

We went Asian for dinner tonight. I told Hub's she was eating squid after she downed 5 rings.

A lil bit hurt.

After a flurry of events, something has happened in my brain that had me googling symptoms to diagnose myself. The closest thing that sounded remotely possible was post traumatic stress syndrome. I read through a few things online and ticked about 7/10 boxes for it. I've never really believed that the condition existed to be quite honest, especially not for something as minute as my issue.

The feeling has been bothering me for days. The event that started it all basically haunts me every day no matter how much I try to get past it, but it's not bringing me lack of sleep, anger nor have I turned to drugs and alcohol - which are the 3 symptoms I didn't tick.

Pondering and doing all the spiritual what-have-you stuff, I came to the conclusion that it's not PTSD at all .. I'm just going through the emotions that come with having a divided family aka. I'm sad.

Getting through it is tricky, because it literally hurts my heart.
When your trust is all but shattered
When your faith is all but killed
You can give up, bitter and battered
Or you can slowly start to build.

First week of Autumn.

She wanted a fringe .. so I cut her a fringe.

WTF moment.

Almost in tears moment.
She actually loved it in the end. It's not straight at all, but she doesn't care. We used the only scissors we could find .. which were probably the biggest pair of scissors we own.

The boy with his camera.

Not sure what they did at school today.

Guessing he's Raphael the Ninja Turtle with Leonardo's binky.

Where do you find your happy?

Happiness is finding glee in a ribbon, not a device.

Happiness is capturing that glee in a ribbon.

Birthday brownie.

Wrapped up the birthdays today with a fab sunset and a Countdown brownie.

4 weeks til term 1 is over.
I'm refusing to work during the holidays this year.
I'd rather take the financial loss than spend my holidays at work.

Happy Birthdays

Guess what I got for my birthday?

Osteoporosis in my wrist.
A ride through the hood for his pre-birthday.

A trip to the park.

Birthday trip to the aquarium.
Hub's bunked school to spend the day with us.
Stiddy didn't care about the aquarium.
We lasted 15 minutes in there this time round and he spent most of it running up and down the disability ramp by the fake shark and preserved giant squid.

Aunty Avi came too. She loves her Sti-Boy.

Just like that ... he's 2.

Sometimes my house is off limits, even for visits. You get the few who will brave the challenge and try, but most stay away. This works in my favor.
Today, Rome felt brave.
She came and she conquered with her squad in tow.
Rome is a conqueror.
Tomorrow she will be 11 year old.

And now I'm 40.

Summer part 2

Nessa envisioned this shoot with my nephew Ellis. They pulled it all together very well. Hubs was supposed to be in it, but got stage fright...
