It's been a long week. A very long week. I have hardly seen Scott since last weekend, the boys haven't seen him at all. A couple of days in Melbourne, followed by an extra hectic schedule, has seen him leaving before we wake and returning long after the boy's bedtime. We've barely managed a few hours of chat and catching up. Times like these are not ideal for any of us. So it's just a matter of getting through each day the best we can. I've actually been extremely organised, remained fairly positive and spent plenty of quality time with the boys. All of that being said, I've also felt rather solitary. I adore being a stay-at-home Mama and know I am ever so lucky to be able to do it for now, but there is often a loneliness associated with this role. And this week, it seemed to be highlighted more than usual.
So little trips to the shops or local parks or playing games at home is how we've spent our days. The weather has been a beautiful Autumn blend of sunshine and refreshing temperatures. Today, we had a lovely time at Watson's Bay. A walk along the jetty, fish & chips lunch and a long play at the park. It was a nice way to break up the day. I just couldn't stop snapping. What I didn't capture though, was moments after I took the shot of Angus drinking his orange juice... the remaining three quarters of the bottle was knocked down my leg and into my shoe, straight out of Angus' chubby hands. The culprit: Felix of course. So a damp, sticky shoe accompanied me from that point on.
I found Felix during a rather reflective moment, at the top of the slide. So thoughtful.
