Second post for the day!!!

This hasn't happened for a while!! It's 10.30pm, the kids are tucked away and DH is away for the night, so I have just eaten huge amounts of chocolate, drunk a fair bit of red wine and watched 'Mama Mia' for the first time. I quite enjoyed it, but didn't think it was really worth all the rave reviews I had read. Must admit though, the song where Donna was reminiscing about her daughter and how quickly she has grown did bring tears to my eyes, especially as my own big girl starts high school in less than a week.....
Anyway, the point of this post is to put some more pics out there for you. I took these this evening in my garden, when the heat had died down a little. Enjoy!!!

Summer Fun!

Two of the best things about summer are cherries and splashing in the pool on a hot day. Today we have had both!! It is absolutely sweltering here today - the thermometer out in my patio area says it is 42 degrees (about 110) and for coastal Tassie, that is HOT!!!! Took some pics of Alice and her ge ge enjoying the paddling pool, and of Alice enjoying some fresh summer cherries. Enjoy!!

A Morning at the Beach

The big kids are currently away camping with their cousins, so Alice and I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and head off to the beach this morning before it got too hot. This girl just LOVES the beach, and to 'play sand water'!!! The photos other than the beach ones were taken a couple of days ago - I am still learning how to use this magnificent camera, and I'm afraid it is a steep learning curve. I have taken literally hundreds of photos since Christmas and still don't manage to get too many good ones, but I hope I am improving a little bit....
