The Week that Was

Last week managed to disappear before I realised it had started. Here's a few highlights.

Pish Posh Paint

We replenished our facepaint supply at the $2 shop, and had some fun.

Then the girls had been begging to go to the beach for a paddle, and although the wind was a tad cool, there was no stopping them, so on Friday we headed out to Clarkes Beach.

We drove home late afternoon, licking ice creams and blissed out from some beach time...expect some more sandy moments now that spring has dawned!

You are such a good sport Hay! So many talented artists too - loving the flower belly button and the dog.

Glad to hear you had a bliss Friday at the beach too and enjoy more of the spring sunshine to come x

I so remember the days when my daughters, now young adults, dressed, painted and coiffed me. Wonderful days, these.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
