Missing you..

My eldsest son, who recently turned 18 is on his first holiday without us.
Just him and a couple of mates.
They flew to Queensland 5 days ago and unfortunetly coped the brunt of the terrible weather up there.
He still tells us he's had a good time.
I haven't !
I've never been away from my child this long and I'm seriously missing him.
When he's home, sure I nag him about cleaning his room,helping around the house etc, etc,
But I want him home.
Thank goodness he flies home tonight.
I can't wait to see his face and hug him.
His brother has missed him a LOT and the dog has been sleeping on his bed, just waiting for him.
I'm not so keen on this" kids have to grow up business", it's hard on us mums and I'd keep them with me forever if I could.
So as one child enters adulthood and I slowly get use to the transition, all I can think about is damn it, it's all gonna start again in 3 years with my next one.
Please be gentle with me boys, your mums not use to this adult thing yet.

Oh yeah, by the way, when he gets home he's DEFINETLY cleaning up that bedroom!! xx

Drizzly Sunday

It's 9am in the morning.
The rain is steadily falling.
My sweet Winston is curled up on the lounge next to me.
A lovely cup of tea at hand.
Not a creature is stirring, (the beauty of having two comatosed teenagers, who don't rise before noon).
I love a Sunday off work.
My time to sit and visit blogland.
To be inspired,have a laugh and just plain relax.
Here are a few pics from some great blogs I visited whilst sipping my tea and listening to the rain quench my garden.

A country of freedom and choice.
I love living in Australia.
So, to this great nation I congratulate you on your special day and to all my fellow Australians, can I get an....

Brotherly Love..

Now I am not one who is really a big fan of tattoos.
I can see the beauty in the artwork and the talent of the artist,but they're just not for me.
My eldest son however, loves them.
He recently turned 18 and got a tattoo today that symbolises his love and protectiveness over his younger brother. (Cody)

He will always watch over him and protect him.
Even as a non tattoo lover I have to say, this did bring a lump to my throat.
I'm so happy my boys love and care for each other.
What more could a mum want?..xx

Duck egg blue phase..

I am loving Duck egg blue at the moment.
Any shade fulfills me.
I'm going to try and incorporate it into my new family room redo.
Here are a few pics that are giving me some colour inspiration..

Hope you're having a colour filled week.. xxx

Hot Stuff..

Whilst some parts of the world are still shivering, we are sweltering.
Today was the hottest day on record in my home town.
46.5* celcius.
That's 115.7* fahrenheit..
There are terrible bushfires and properties lost.
Power blackouts due to the increased pressure on the electrical grid from all the air conditioners running.
I know Australia is a hot climate but this is ridiculous.
Tomorrow, we are promised much cooler temps and I know my Dog Winston will be happy to hear that.
Make sure if you're coming Down Under for a visit to bring your sunscreen, you're gonna need it.
Here's to a cooler weekend and hopefully some rain to bring the bushfires under control..xx

STOP! ...I'm NOT ready..

On Saturday the 12th my eldest son will turn 18.
This is ridiculous.
Where did the last 18 years go?
My adorable baby, is now a gorgeous young man.
I'm not ready yet for all this to happen.
Letting go is REALLY hard for me .
I know he's really excited for this milestone to come but I could go a few more years yet.
We all know our babies have to grow up, but why so quickly?

Happy Birthday my darling son and no matter what age you are,you're still my little boy..

Love you..xx
