The little rabbit we found last weekend and my aspirations to dress it in a cardi were part of my La La thinking. Someone out there has since taken the wee pet to their home - how sweet! Maybe La La Land is just a pleasant way to be thankful of life's simple pleasures. It is far nicer for me to focus on my apples growing or a beautiful expression from my children than what so and so said about so and so. This little chair captured my thoughts at a recent birthday party.
My Master S brought home his school work as all kids do this time of year. Flicking through it I found a Christmas ditty he had composed. It blew my mind. The day before I had commented on a blog I follow about our Christmas traditions. It was half true I thought at the time - and half speaking something into existence.
"Is Christmas better than Easter?
My opinion is Christmas.
Firstly, Jesus was born and on Easter he dies.
Secondly, Christmas is for giving and Easter is for grief.
Thirdly, Christmas may be last but it is worth it.
Fourthly, Christmas is made for happy times and Easter is for sad times.
Fifthly, Easter makes you sick and Christmas is full of joy.
Sixthly, Christmas is about family and Easter is about finding eggs full of junk.
And that is why I like Christmas more than Easter."
You get the gist!
When I read this - I realised they were not just La La thoughts - but true. I am doing a good job. My son has retained something I have taught him. I know I can feel very disheartened with my expectations of myself as a mother - and some of my friends have shared they feel this way to.
So I want to encourage you to let some of the ladies you know they are doing a great job with their lot. Can you do this for me? Thankyou xoxo
I am not quite sure where our Australian summer is in Victoria. Last night we were rugged up, listening to carols and knitting squares. It felt like a cosy winter Christmas from a North American movie! Very nostalgic! I don't tend to knit in the summer months... I think I should do it more often. Happy Sunday! xo
