...Taking Stock

VCE studying is well underway, with the final exams starting Thursday.  With all the reflection we have been doing over the past week at the valedictory celebrations, it has had me "contemplating life" and taking stock. What a special time it is for all those finishing Senior School.  To our dear son Cam,  the very best of luck to you, we are so proud of you and love you so much. You light up our lives.

Just had to share this with you.  My youngest is still getting over it!!!!  Ben was looking out the family room window and "gazing and grazing" when suddenly, he was stuttering at me.  He couldn't get the words out.  I said what's wrong, whats wrong.  He was pointing, still stuttering then all of a sudden blurted out the words 'THERE'S A CHICKEN IN THE BACK YARD".  I looked outside and sure enough, there was "a chicken in the back yard".  Here are some shot's that he took on my iphone.  I thought it was amusing but Ben thought it was quite extraordinary - "A CHICKEN IN THE BACK YARD".  Don't know about you, but growing up in the suburbs, it really wasn't THAT unusual for people to have "CHICKENS IN THE BACK YARD".  Our dog Charlie thought all his Christmas (dinners) had come at once!!!

...Spring is Just Around the Corner!!!

Spring is just around the corner!!!!! - not the prettiest of images but couldn't resist this girls- hope it made you smile.

...... Goodbye Notebook Magazine

I am very sad to learn that "Notebook"magazine (an Australian publication) will be publishing it's last edition this month.   One of the few mags in the marketplace that doesn't write about gossip, dieting, celebrities etc. It is very inspirational, providing everyday solutions to women's busy lives and insights centred around thought provoking, intelligent and compassionate journalism.   I will miss you Notebook - thanks for 5 great years.
