But this next photo I had to put in. I just love the colour. Finally I took some pictures today that aren't the dull grey bleak colour to them. Winter maybe slowly leaving since I see some buds on the trees and some tulips coming up thru the soil. Colour. I didn't miss the lack of colour that comes with Canada when in Australia. Sun and red dirt just give some life to things. But bleak end of winter colour is so depressing. Maybe that's why I have been in a funk.

It is for all mining families even if you don't live in Australia. If you are Australian living elsewhere if you used to live in Australia and then are in a mining town somewhere else. Use the site. Look at the site. It was a very very smart idea and will help us all in someway as we struggle with loving and hating this lifestyle that we choose to get into by marriage or career.
Check it out and send it to someone you know. See if I have any influence on the world wide web!!!!

We walk home from dropping off the girls at school and he waves at the garbage truck guy, points at all the tractors, ohh's at all the dogs , and asks if we are going home for tea? That I just slow down and enjoy every moment. Home for some more breakfast and a bath. Taking the time to play with the great Winnie the Pooh bath toy we have. Giggling and splashing water. Asking what his name is only to be told "me". Pointing at his nose and asking what it is. It's mine!!! It's is your nose? Yes. Can you say nose. No mine!
Warm hugs in the towels drying off. More giggles, kisses, and hugs. Cuddling into my side as we have lunch together and watch a movie. Playing with dolls, trucks, balls, and blocks. Yes I could be doing more productive things. But he is growing up and not my little baby. He's funny and cuddly. It won't last much longer. I want to soak it in. Smell him and cuddle next to him in my bed in the morning. Because some day all my little ones will be adults and living their much longer life not in my house. Hug all your little ones because in the skeem of things. They really just want you for such a little time of our 80 plus years of life.

Had friends come to visit on Thursday and Friday Eric and I went out to a Wine Tasting night. Funny after almost 4 years I perfer Australian wine over BC wine. Don't like USA wine at all!! I didn't have my camera but there was a little one lady dressed to the nines at this event. Man was she an inspiration. I hope to be as cute and as posh as she is when that age hits. (I'd say she was in her 80's)
So good to get away from the kids for just us time. And someone even commented that I look 30!!! The rest of the weekend is just hanging up some photos, digging around outside and just enjoying the sun.
