Itchy fingers

Australian summer of tennis. I'm hooked on it. 
And I have to have a hook in my hand watching it. 
And some wool. Sewing won't do. 
This is going to be a big throw blanket. 
Not sure which year it will be ready. But it will remind me of tennis. 
Like the smaller one I made in 2008. 
Watching Australian Open in Karratha. 
Outside temperature over 40 degrees. 
Inside in aircon just cool enough to have a pile of wool in your lap.

Finnish traditions on Christmas Eve with family. Done.
Seafood lunch on Christmas Day with family and friends. Done.
Kids' excitement and joy with new toys.
A bit of shopping.
A bit more of sewing and ideas.
All done.
This view is from our couch. In a horizontal position.
Afternoon naps and no rush. The best thing.

Separation anxiety

This week Popeye had his first day in daycare.
A BIG DAY for mummy.
My tiny "big boy" in the wide world all by himself.
It was like somebody was squeezing my heart in their hands the whole time.
I got rewarded though.
Lots of kisses when I picked him up.
And now he's got fever...

It's all happening here

In Scarbs, my neighbourhood.
Hot Friday afternoon and they are setting up for a concert.
Couldn't really find a place with more beautiful views.
Living here is like a box of chocolates,
you never know what you're going to find.
I love it.
