the melbourne adventure..

Oh.. it seems like an eternity ago that I said goodbye to my little monkeys when dropping them off to kindy knowing that I wasn't going to see them for almost a week.. It was tough.. very tough.. especially knowing that I was not going to see them for so long, just so I could have a bit of 'me' time and to have a break from my everyday life...  and even more so that I was going to be in another state and that I was taking one of my best friends with me.. who just happens to be the best adopted auntie to my kids ever..

The doubts that go through a mums mind when she does something for herself is just crazy.. I mean I was just going to Melbourne to do a bit of shopping.. enjoy uninterrupted sleep, hot cups of coffee, warm meals and adult conversation with my best buddy.

Well I loved the trip, I loved catching up with a very old friend, I loved the coffee, food, sleep and shopping adventures and I loved the road trip to pick up an antique kitchen mixer bought on eBay and the night drive back at approximately 20km/hour through the hills where fires tore through Victoria a while back and I loved the long conversations into the night with my traveling buddy who can't just be classified as a best friend but a soul mate... 

What I loved most was realizing how blessed I am to have the life I do. I have the most amazing children, the most amazing husband and the most amazing friends right here in lil-old-Adelaide. I really don't mind cold coffee, or sleeping in odd positions in my bed so that my daughter is comfortable, or getting up to feed my 1.5yo little guy several times a night, or half eating cold meals, or rushing through the supermarket throwing in items that look mildly appealing to get out of there as fast as I can. 

I am lucky enough to not have to return to full time work and to be here for my kids, I am lucky that my kids go to a wonderful kindy that they love giving me a bit of me time each week, I am lucky to be able to spend one on one time with each of my two children once a week so that I can stay connected to where they are up to in their development and I am lucky to be able to do what I love which is create for my kids, my friends and now others. 

It is the little things that are important and I guess it was nice to realize that everything I thought I was missing out on, was really not that important to me anymore. I love what I have and I'm content.

Here is a visual of my little journey.. the things that made me smile along the way..

the number that inpired me to look at numbers..
i think it was on the wall of a little restaurant we went to.
