Tuesday

à la maison

it is finally here... home. something i have been longing for,for quite some time. and now it has arrived i am adoring the warm sunshine and the new freckles sprinkled upon my nose. and the playful garden mornings with dear trixie-lu.
the hot home cooked food provided by mother and croissant and tea mornings with brothers and outings with a prince.

the sweet adventures with family loves and the silly silly laughs with samuel and the work days at school with such arty-ness.

so much to tell you...

spending a chilly summer's 'father's day' at a beach eating ice creams and throwing pebbles at the waves and laughing at silly words and exchanging cards and gifts and eating sandwiches and chocolate chunks or banana split desserts. or a tea.
spending my days staring up in the skies and spotting shapes and people and things made out of fluffy white cotton wool clouds... or the magic moon.spending silly-fun time at a cousin's birthday party with pass-the-parcel games and warm food and bubbly cola and little nephews and nieces and balloons and dessert and sparkly trampoline jumps.
spending time on the bus travelling to friend's warm evening birthday barbeques with gifts of vanilla cheesecake and garden picked flowers. with giggles and talking of old memories and smiling lots.
spending hot summer days feeding brown bread to the pretty swans and ducklings and giggling at the dragonflies by the bench with the new prince.
spending beautiful sunshiney afternoons in my paper heart's garden with her steve and her barney and drinks of cold apple and strawberry water and ice creams and ola.
and still ever so much to do.
unpacking and boot fairs of old memories and re-decorating mine and tilly~rose's bedroom and new princess beds and graduation day and seeing my best friends again and taking many more photographs and working in that office for two weeks and making paper clothes and drawing pictures and missing people and seeing people and days with the prince and adventures with friends and the triangle and painting my nails and playing with baby ralph and eating more ice cream.
...and sending comments to my moon friends and my bloggerettes.
thank you for being ever so patient.

i must go and brush my hair 100 times and put on a skirt and catch the bus and meet with a certain ...prince.

  43. I have been recently following your work--you blog so wonderfully and with delicate language. It was a lovely read, my dear, and thank you for sharing with us all.

    And there is something about eating ice cream, falling head over heels, and missing people that characterizes summertime quite well, don't you think?
