That's what we call it when the kids use the swings this way. Flapping their arms, supported around their bellies and kicking their little legs wildly. Laughing and carefree in the warm autumn sun. It's good to be 2.

Cupcake Oma's been visiting. She and the Littlest Duckling tidied up the house, set up a garden party in the sunshine and filled the bath with bubbles. She's a gem that Oma.

Irrational Grief and Disappointment

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

My dad would have liked these. He liked liquorice allsorts. Darrell Lea liquorice allsorts particularly. When I saw these in the supermarket I felt quite cross that they didn't bring them out in time for him to try them. I know that there are much bigger things that he has missed and that we have missed sharing with him but this tipped me over the edge. I started weeping a little in the supermarket. I don't even like allsorts but I couldn't leave them behind. So, I bought them and I fed them to the kids and we remembered him. Seeing the kids enjoy them made me feel a little better.
Breathe in.
Breathe out.
Heart full.
