We said tomato. Red tomato!

At around this time last year we had more tomatoes than we knew what to do with. Well, I exaggerate a little. We did know what to do with them – but there were SO MANY. Look at my Small DB in this post from back then. OMG I am so glad cameras were invented – where did that little baby go?

This year – she’s eating a few each day. And has learned her first colour. Red.

Goodbye, freshly picked tomato. Say hello to Daisy.

I’m reading back on a few posts from this time last year. There is a similarity there to what I’m feeling now. I hesitate to write it, in case it vanishes, but a certain zen that has pervaded the last week. Something to do with the end of Christmas and the five family birthdays in the month immediately afterward?

Catching up and hanging out

We have not seen our lovely friends with all of us present this year. And it’s nearly April. This is the kind of thing that happens when people are working, kid wrangling, and live over an hours drive apart. And it sucks. But we had a lovely day…

They arrived for lunch, and after some soup and sandwiches we set out for The Pines – Shoreham Beach. I have to say that if I won a lot of money, Shoreham would be a serious contender for my Victorian abode – the road to the beach is just sublime, full of huge trees and houses on enormous blocks – mostly old houses too, none of the new fangled Point Leo bling…

The carpark was chock full of surfers and their vehicles. M and Mr J went out for a surf while E and I stayed and hung with the four Smalls. FOUR!! And here’s some pictures…

Once we all got home, we just hung out and eventually decided that dinner would be a good idea. Of course, our Smalls were run ragged by that point and their wheels began to fall off. There was not a great amount of relaxation had – particularly, of course, by the mothers… But a wonderful and long overdue day. And now Small DB has improved in the car, we might actually be able to return the visit!

And a few other pictures from the week…

Look who's on the back steps

And something Small Z came up with entirely on her own while I spent half an hour convincing the other one to nap…. “Look mama – I wrote my name in Lego!”

A few days back I left Small Z on her own for 30min & she wrote her name in #lego #4yo #unprompted

Today. And last September.

I don’t know what it was – but we were walking past the bus stop and I remembered the photo I had taken last year. A photo that I love. So I took another. It turns out that Small Z was wearing the same top?
