Tessa said the post on my birthday was a bit sad or maybe gloomy. It wasn’t meant to be. Of course it was the day my flu really set in so that could have influenced it. It is more that I would love to use this year as a focal point to shape the next 10 years, reflect on what a fortunate life I have had, and all the things that add up to a good life.
Today life is creeping back into my body and we even took the new bike for spin, it is a lovely thing to glide around the suburbs on. Right now we are babysitting Edie and will have to ride half a k home, just as well I have the dynamo lights!
Edie was a bit stroppy to-night and when I had her totally ready for bed, she suddenly remembered that she did get her cake for dessert, then she wanted to start the whole bedtime routine again; books, milk, books, teeth. books. So I switched the lights off and sat on her bed while she fussed a little, she is such a sweetheart though and immediately settled down. I counted to 100 and started inching out of the room while counting to 100 again, and success!
Today we went into the city and visited Richard at work. It was a nice sunny day and it was a nice outing. We caught the train and the tram, using the new Myki cards.
A lovely family day! It is so nice to be on a break, it is different from being on holidays. Holidays can be exhausting and you often feel you need to recover from it no matter how good it was, don’t you?
