The Mid Year Bump

I shouldn’t have thought it, I just shouldn’t. It was only a few weeks ago I thought to myself, this year is going ok. No major dramas, a bit of sickness (colds/coughs) but nothing to really complain about, we are doing ok.

And then this happened…

The image doesn’t really do it justice, it doesn’t look terribly bad, but it was bad enough to write the car off. I had just dropped the big kids at school, turned down the road to my house, and stopped and indicated to turn into my driveway, a large truck was coming the opposite way so I thought I had better wait for it to pass, and then BAM! an almighty crash. Heath screamed in fright, “where’s the kids” I think he thought they vanished in the smash. I screamed and cried in shock. Within moments my next door neighbours were by my side, the driver of the other vehicle was comforting me and a lady who was driving by (a nurse) had pulled up to help. I have never been in an accident before. I was pretty shaken up, but at least we only had to cross the road to get home. The ambulance came, and the police and checked us both over. Heath went back to playing Mario on the DS and seemed quite disinterested in what was going on around him.

Everyone was so helpful and kind, my car was towed away, never to return (boo hoo) but thankfully we had my in laws car in our driveway as we were trying to sell it for them, so we were not out of a vehicle. Ive had a bit of whip lash since, but it is getting better, Heath was fine, back to his normal self although giving me a few more cuddles and kisses that day. We got a new car (read car loan) as insurance paid up the bare minimum and not a cent more (thanks for 15 years of service, au revoir). So obviously with all that happening (that week was a write off, sorting out insurance, MAIB claims etc) then getting a cold the following week hasn’t allowed me much time to post any images I have taken. So since the accident we have had…. A birthday

Trips to the park

A couple of day trips that require their own blog post because I took way too many photos…

Our bump in the road also included a second accident and also a lens dropping incident which required repairs, so they say things come in three’s right..? That should do it for this year then!!!

Follow the boy

This year has been busy, busy at home, with a 3 year old I rarely find time to sit at the computer and do a blog post, and by the time night comes I just want to veg out and watch House Rules and not move for the rest of the evening, so I’m afraid the blog has been neglected. (It has also taken me all day to get this blog post typed)

Iv’e been spending a bit of time at home, trying to keep the house tidy for inspections, so we haven’t made many adventures outside lately, I realised I hadn’t taken any photos for weeks, so yesterday I grabbed my camera and new wide angle lens and followed my youngest around for the day, inspired by the lovely Molly whom I have followed on her blog for a long time, seeing her gorgeous photos of her kids, just as they are, in their environment, no set up lighting, just as it is then and there, so this is what happened. Excuse the washing.

Winter is here…and I’ve gone into hibernation

I’ve been a bit quiet, winter does that to me, and perhaps it does it to everyone else too! I don’t have a lot to report at all! My days have been filled with endless washing and entertaining my two year old, soon it will be school holidays again so those weeks will be even busier with the kids.

THese photos were taken back in May on our wedding anniversary weekend, where we went to Cradle Mountain and didn’t even see the mountain. I was very miffed that I didn’t get one photo while we were up there because of the bad weather, so on the way home we stopped at Guide Falls to take a few photos.
