A thousand thankyous for your caring and insightful comments on my last post, you huge-hearted Planetarians. There's no doubt about you - you all manage to pull together to lift me up and keep me going at this trying time. I thank you - deeply. However, as I said here, "But still life goes on". My head is teeming with all the posts I'm longing to share with you about how we're settling into our new home. But I need to focus on 'self-care' as my doctors keep reminding me (oh, and bloggy rehab and all that). So instead, I'll share with you some photos taken recently of the shenanigans here on Planet Baby HQ. Okay, here goes!
Last week, I sent Sammy off with Mr PB to the hairdressers for a 'trim'. My mistake. Here's his interpretation of 'trim'.
Remember, only a few months ago, he was my 'curly-whirly boy'. Eek! My baby's growing up!
Miss India and Sam have been delighting in finding new hiding spots around the house. Here's one of their more obvious ones.
We flung open our fancy kitchen bi-fold windows for the first time. Our café had some enthusiastic customers queuing up outside.
Carrot cake proved a hit. Here are the satisfied customers. I think they'll be back, don't you?
We spotted another rainbow on our back yard. This time it was a double one. The pixies' first=magic!
We had the carpet and furniture steam-cleaned. That meant afternoon tea-time was spent snuggled up together on the couch, atop a pile of towels. What a lark!
And my aunt and I set to in the overgrown front garden, secateurs and long-handled clippers in hand. This is the before shot, cursed cotoneaster and all.
And the after shot. Cotoneaster be gone!
We discovered numerous roses, a lilac tree and a camellia bush underneath all that mess. Discovering my green thumb is now one of my favourite pastimes! We are looking forward to planning what we want to plant. When life has settled down here a bit, that is.
Er, time to get to bed. So much for an early night ☺. I hope you all have a wondrous week. Good night!
