Yeah, we're THIS happy - we're at the beach! No school! No kindy! NO FUCKING DOCTOR'S APPOINTMENTS OR DRUGS! Woop!

All you'll hear when you visit over the next fortnight is crickets chirping. So I wouldn't bother stopping by for a while.. we're far too busy sleeping in, celebrating birthdays, playing at the beach and visiting every playground we can find. Woop again!

the craft corner / play clay

We're having a go at polymer clay - or play clay as we like to call it! Take a look, get your clever smalls to make some one of a kind brooches for their playgroup/kindy/school teachers and you're sorted for Christmas super early! Or make something bright and colourful for yourself..

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Ruby / a stark contrast to the picture of health of Hermione.. call from the school nurse mid week saw an early pick up followed by a steep and rapid descent into extreme shitness
Cole / poor darling missed a week and a half of kindy.. at least his clay is happy?
Eliot / lots of showers for my smallest who decided he didn't really want to take any medicine anymore, even when your temp is hovering just below 40..

extreme shitness

I cannot think of a profanity worthy enough to use to describe the level of shitness we have experienced here in the last fortnight. That last photo is quite good. Compared to where things went from there.

We are climbing back, ever so slowly. Just in time to get the hell out of this place and head for the sunshine.

Melbourne, every winter you make me like you less and less. I will be overfuckingjoyed to fly away from you.

A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.

Ruby / Book Week! She was so impressed with her Hermione hair..
Cole / a terrible week of germs being passed around at kindy.. 'mum, I just feel the worst ever. EVER!'
Eliot / the boy who hates bandaids - but there was no way around it after an exceptional stack off his bike.

the arthur family

I was going to share this film with you next week, with the full stills collection. But I'm so happy Ellen and Regan love their film so much - I want to share it today! The stills can wait until after the weekend..

Meet the Arthur family..

Monday, 18 August 2014


I do wonder if I will ever have the drive for blogging like I used to. I used to make time for it. And now it has fallen to the bottom of the list - way down where things only get done if I have enough energy left over to do them. Which usually means I don't. Yet when I share a post, I still enjoy it - it's just not a priority like it used to be.

Things change and our priorities move around in all directions, like leaves floating down a river, weaving in and out of one another, overtaking and falling behind. Sometimes the things that are in the lead for your attention are the things you wish were right at the back. But that's life.

We are a few weeks away from a nice long break - from everything. A month off school and kindy, and a good stretch of time away with my family in the sunshine. There is much to do between now and then and I feel as though the tick of the clock is right at my heels, pushing me to just keep moving, yet not trying to do too much after what happened on our last trip away.

I'm not even sure what this post is for - I just felt like I needed to catch up. Post something - anything - just for me. Perhaps I should include snippets of the families I have been fortunate enough to photograph over the last month? But no. That deserves it's own post. Maybe tomorrow..
