I had to ask myself why I blog (amongst other questions). I am sure we all have lots of reasons for this little habit - mine are simple. It is a fun way to keep a record of our lives and what small achievements are made and I feel part of a community. Blogging is being part of a culture of women who are creative and inspiring, because, while all of my close friends are creative and inspiring none knit or have the need to make things as I do. And, of course, we all want to be appreciated and noticed in some way don't we?
So expect me to me visiting a few more blogs I like and making sure I do my bit in spreading the love and appreciation.
I could also write a whole post on my ambivalent feelings about mother's day but I won't. I will, however, tell you I did make it a day. I informed the pirate he had to let me kiss him as much as I needed to because it was my day - he reluctantly obliged. I dragged him even more reluctantly to the hills with the promise of a cave (of sorts) at the end. He walked the most he ever has in one day and I am proud of him. Here is a little taster of what we saw.
and my favourite - wrinkles on a Eucalypt's branch join. Love it.
The pirate made it all the way back to the start distracted with a search for bigger and better bones. Here is his stash.
I think Harry Potter looks afraid.
