Sooo, it’s been a while…

The 2nd of April! Sheesh, really, that is the last time I wrote and posted?

Family holiday, the girls wading at Glenelg, it was a gorgeous night.

I could take all the time in the world to beat myself up over it, or I could just shrug it off and say oh well.
I choose ‘oh well’.
I don’t have a well thought out plan for this post – or any post for that matter, just feel the need to write and reconnect.
So here goes…in no certain order – a bit erratic is me 😉

I have a new baby to lavish with love and good intentions – now don’t get all excited for me, it’s not my baby. My darling friend Poss has just had her first miracle, Tex. Right on the heels of her taking the title of Australian Rural Woman of the Year – is this chick totally awesome or what!!!

My tribe is all growing and learning and becoming somewhat adept at pushing my buttons – little maniacs’ provide me with no end of amusement and torture and a heart filled to bursting with love.

Is there anything as close to perfect as this.  It melts my heart everytime my eyes light upon Edie's gift to me.

I am gob-smacked that my number one girl (as in first-born, not favourite kid, that’s Connie – joking…), Edie will be starting school next year – yikes, where has the time gone? I am so going to miss her like crazy and at the same time cannot wait to have more time with Connie and Reg.

Yoga. I love yoga. I have been practicing yoga on my own for about 13 years now – sometimes daily, sometimes not for months, but I always love yoga. And now we have a totes awesome and amazing Yoga teacher coming to Kimba once a week. To say I am in love all over again is such an understatement. Lucy is the embodiment of all things Yoga, her knowledge, her style, her ridiculously flexible body – think I may have a little lady-crush on her. Without going all touchy-feely on you, my head is in a much better place, I don’t yell at the kids quite as much, I am getting more shitty jobs (read – office work – blergh) done, my inner control freak is back in its box and I feel much more go-with-the-flow. It is fucking brilliant – seriously, I need to swear here, the emphasis is important.

And to top off that little pot of goodness, I was fortunate enough to reconnect with a super-wise and wonderful mentor and friend a couple of weeks ago, Karynne.  And you know what, turns out she is normal too.  Not the super human I had kinda painted her to be, it makes me love her all the more.

It just feels right, right now – life that is.  I am so grateful for everything and everyone in my life and I just needed to tell them that.
