we flew up to see my mum this week. More pics to follow. Here are some pics of rues first beach trip. 




today i found out that a man i know, and didnt like, died in a car crash last week. I have no idea how to feel about it as he wasnt a good person yet i feel for his family and friends and those who tried so hard to revive him. 

It made me think that life is short and we need to live how we want. For me this is owning a nice little house in the country, its having my family safe and warm and making sure they know i love them. For some reason i felt the need to finish a quilt i have been working on so that me and rue can snuggle under it on cold mornings. This is the first quilt i have made for myself and its a much more complicated design than any i have made before but i already love it. I cant wait to finish it and see it keep my family warm for years to come.


A story

Heres a little story i have to share.

Over the weekend my brother, sister and I and our partners got together for a bbq down by the lake. One thing led to another and the topic of zombies and how we would defend ourselves cropped up, as it does. My sister decided throwing knives were her weapon of choice. She used to go bushwalking with my grandad when she was younger and they would throw their hunting knives at trees to pass time over night. She was pritty good apparently.

My brothers girlfriend decided on a bat which she could swing wildly and cause alot of damage.

Although i love a bow and arrow its no good at close range and you have limited amo so i decided on a knife. You can cause alot of damage with a knife and people cant grab it off you like a bat.

This is where my brother piped up, that he was a rape whistle kinda guy. Lol. That’s my boy.

Are you nuts like my family?
