Wordless Wednesday – Spider Web

I caught this tiny spider web yesterday morning. It was a cold foggy morning and this spider web was bedazzled with dew drops and begging to be photographed.

#100happydays – Week 4

A pretty good week on the happy photo sharing front. I’m finding it easier to find joy in the little things like cups of tea.

Monday: I love it when the kids amuse themselves with craft.

Tuesday: Earl grey with a teaspoon of honey. Little cup of heaven before bed.

Wednesday: My son humouring his little sister’s dress up game but insisting on the grey bow. He’s an awesome brother. She misses him while he’s at school.

Friday: Baking with this girl.

Saturday: Today I turned a pair of jeans into a skirt for Xanthe. I’ve been talking about doing it for ages and today I finally got it done. I’m stoked with how it turned out. (Why was I so excited with a simple jean-to-skirt conversion? Because I am not known for my mad sewing skills)

#100happydays – Week 3

Week 3 of the #100happydays challenge. I managed 5 out of 7. Not bad!


Tuesday: Today their games are making me giggle. Meet King Millar and Queen Xanthe.


Wednesday: Gorgeous rainbow this morning


Thursday: Playing with snakes at shopping malls. As you do.


Friday: Beautiful blue skies and sunshine.


Sunday: Inspired by an episode of Mouk, my kids try out meditation. Cute and quiet. Win win.



#100HappyDays – Week 2

Week two of the #100happydays challenge and I dropped the ball somewhat. Unsurprising really. I suck at daily challenges and it’s very normal for me to stumble this early on!

It’s not that I wasn’t happy on the last three days of the week just gone, it’s just that I was busy doing stuff that makes me happy and I forgot to record and share. I could say some wanker bullshit thing about living in the moment but I wont because that’s wanker bullshit.

Here are the photos I managed to share on the #100happydays hashtag last week.

9/100. Today was hard. The kids were challenging and the dog on his worst behaviour. But I made it through, and at least the last of the autumn trees were pretty.

10/100. I got to go to an event at the museum by myself! I needed this kid free time more than I realised. Outside in the city after dark!! photos 102

11/100 balloons before bedtime.

Next week’s challenge will be to share a photo every day! Wish me luck.

I hope your week was happy too!
