Pondering and musing

17 May

I had been feeling a little mellow for a few days there. It could have had something to do with a bit of post holiday blues. For my birthday surprise, 4 lovely girlfriends whisked me away to Noosa for the weekend!! What a treat!!! It was so divine to lie in the sun, do nothing but eat and sleep and relax. Thank you so much to everyone who helped organise it, it was exactly what I needed.

But of course, with ups, there comes downs. And from getting back on Sunday evening til Wednesday, I was feeling very flat indeed. It doesn’t do me any good to ponder on the could have beens but when you are in a grump, you tend to focus solely on all the crappy things that are happening and magnify them until you can’t see past them. And yes, there are certainly some crappy things happening in our life. Tilda is well, before you worry about her! She continues to do well with her feeds and has put on lots of weight. Smiling and laughing and generally being delicious as always. Thankfully. However, as I said, when you are in a grump, those things don’t get a look in. On Monday and Tuesday, I focused on the crappy things and the could have beens and the woe is me and the why, why, why.

What a bore.

Thankfully on Wednesday, after chats to wonderful friends and a glimmer of the sunshine here in Melbourne, I was able to move past the crap and once again focus on what we do have. Which is loads.

I don’t have too much else to report on so thought I would again show off some Tilda of old because although it is heartbreaking to see how much she has changed, it is also so very nice to remember.

    Hi Laura,
    Beautiful video of Tilda. She certainly was immersed in her painting and how lucky was she to have a mum who let her truly explore the colour blue!
    We are pleased you were able to have a well deserved break at Noosa .
    Love Wendy and Ken

    Beautiful girl. And you too! xxx this time of year is not Melbourne’s best imo. Sorry everyone who loves autumn, to me it’s just the beginning of another Melbourne winter. Ugh.

    You are such a cool mum, so ace that you let her paint herself blue- a classic video to cherish! Happy birthday for the other day Laura

    Happy Birthday gorgeous Laura.
    What a nice gift.
    Loved the video clip of lovely Tilda.
    I like the mellow Laura, reflective and honest.
