A full day

Some days are full of activity and yesterday was no exception! The morning started out so nicely,with a trip to the beach for Baby Group. The children had fun playing in the sand and sun, climbing the twisted trees, and us mums, got some fleeting moments of conversation.

In the afternoon we went across the road to meet one of Mums neighbours. An amazing lady in her late 80's who still walks everyday, is on several committees, paints, plays piano, is learning guitar, makes clothes for charities, knits, crochets, oh and is learning 2 languages!!! Talk about a role model. She had us over for an old fashioned Tea party with scones and everything!! Then she took us into the front room and played us a few pieces on the piano. I was completely awe struck by her energy and enthusiasm for life. I only hope that I am able to still be doing all the fabulous things dear Olga is doing at 80.
Today was also a monumental day. Sam went to daycare for the first time. He did brilliantly and loved it. He is going to go just 1 day a week. He calls it "big kid school 'cause I'm a big kid". I must admit, I felt a little lost when I left Sam....what the heck was I going to do with myself???!!??? I should go home and clean. I should go home and finish sewing my latest project. I should iron. I should do the grocery shopping. I should, I should, I should.......take my mother out for the day, have brunch, shop and enjoy one an others company. And that is just what I did.
