The school holidays have hit, sending the those Tsunamis of mine spiralling into orbit. As I posted to Facebook, “I feel like it’s Day 1 in the Big Brother house and I’m not sure I like my flatmates.” Luckily I am one excessively prepared mumma and I managed to pull together 125 activities the kids can do at home. So far we’ve cranked through 13 of them and it’s Day 2, so I’m a bit concerned…
Oh, but they are growing up my kids in a scary-fast kind of way. I know I’m meant to be minding them, but I can’t stand to look. Where did my babies go? How did they get to be people?
Luckily they are very fun people indeed. They make me belly laugh on a daily basis (and belly yell, but let’s not talk about that bit). My girls won’t stop turning cartwheels and Max won’t stop ‘breakdancing’. Here they are on the disco board in Martin Place last night… Bart and I were so… proud. And in hysterics. Just so you know, Max pulls these moves out everywhere we go to much suppressed merriment. He’s great value.
Other things that had me this week:
Reading – Just finished an oldie Case Histories by Kate Atkinson. It’s been on my shelf for donkey’s and I am so glad I finally read it. It’s almost unbearably good. Thank god for my terrible procrastination habit or I wouldn’t have found this fabulous author ready for holiday reading!
Writing – lots and lots and lots. Everyone wants everything before Christmas!
Making – cool play kits for kids, coming soon.
Wishing – for peace on earth. We stopped by to see the ‘field of flowers’ in Martin Place and I had tears. There but for the grace… I’m also wishing my three fellow Rewind hosts a Christmas to match their generosity and joyousness.
Loving – the Christmas lights. This street in Sydney is the absolute bomb.
Wondering – what my word for 2015 is going to be. So many things need my focus it’s very hard to choose!
PS – This will be the last Weekend Rewind for 2014. We’ll see you all again on Friday, 16 January at 8pm where we’ll be featuring our very first guest rewind host for 2015. Happy holidays!
