Day 272

Yesterday was filled with laughter and play. We walked to the shops in the afternoon for hot chocolates. Then had to power walk home as the rain sprinkled down. I cooked them a nice dinner and we all got to enjoy it when Greg and Ryan arrived from work. Life is pretty sweet. Kirrily is almost six months old. I can hardly believe how the time is flying by. I feel blessed to be able to get lots of cuddles. Last night I read Larissa her favourite books before bed and then we had a singalong of her favourite tunes. Normally I sing and dance holding her before I put her down. This time Larissa sung with me! We started with ABCs then twinkle twinkle, her favourite popcorn song then incy wincy spider.

Besides my quick run in with the highway patrol and speeding ticket, I had a really lovely day today. I went to the Hunter Valley for my lovely soul sisters bridal shower. It was a house filled with love and hope. I felt so blessed to be there, to laugh and enjoy everyone’s company. It reminded me of how important it is to share quality time with the women in my life. My heart was full and I felt the magic from the land around us. The vineyards went for miles. The kangaroos hopping through the vines. The rain slowly dropping down on the green fields. After a long drive home I decided Thai food and a red wine is what was needed. Greg and I shared a nice takeaway meal laughing at silly things that had happened during the past week. I needed to smile tonight. For him to tell me it was all going to be ok. I miss Hamish and I know things would be different if he was here. I keep reminding myself though he is here. He is always watching over us wherever we may go.

Hamish I love you my sweet son.
