I can’t really think of a way to capture our week in just a sentence or two. I am grateful that despite some terrible news that has hit our friendship circles this week, we were able to see new life this week too. Beautiful mercies.
Day 38/365 – How To Catch a Cake Thief
Ameli had some Basil Chocolate Cake and Aviya stole a piece. She then smeared it everywhere, and thought it was hysterical.
Day 39/365 – Good Stuff
Day 40/365 – Fairy Land
There was a ‘Fairy Day’ happening in Fremantle, so I took the girls out for something to do. Here they are listening to a fairy tale, complete with sound effects and audience participation. I actually have so many lovely pictures from this day. This one shows what was happening though.
I couldn’t resist. I have so very few photos of myself with both my children at the same time. I just had to add it.
Day 42/365 – Stained Glass Windows
I don’t remember where I first saw these, but I’ve been wanting to try them for ages. They’re candy ‘stained glass windows’ and they are so sweet. It took me a few batches to ‘get right’ but I was relatively happy with the end result!
Day 42/365 – Watermelon and Mint Smoothies
It is what it says on the tin title. A watermelon and mint smoothie. I do love a good smoothie. Especially when it’s as hot as it is here!
Day 44/365 – New Life
My friend Kitty had asked me to act as her doula during her VBAC attempt, but as things turned out, she had a c-section this day. I sat outside the theatre anxiously awaiting news, and as they rolled her out, I was up and by her side, feeding her Arnica and Oak and taking pictures of their new addition. I was so honoured to be able to share in this day with them, and I will always treasure the memory of being on hand to see another new baby come into the world. I am so often reminded of the amazing tribe of women that I belong to, mothers, supportive, respectful, honouring. That’s what the red thread is about. We are women. What more is there? What more could I want?
Thanks for joining us for our week in pictures!
