The week that was…week 19: autumn and its many delights

2013-05-06 19.28.11Zachary and Jude decided to immortalise in art the soft toys I brought them back from Jakarta. They did a pretty fine job I would say.

2013-05-06 19.35.56It was another week of another beautiful Canberra autumn.

I wasn’t as appreciative of it as I may have been – by mid week a cold had struck hard, and I took the day off on Wednesday. In the end though, that just meant I spent the day working in bed, or at least in my pyjamas.

I wasn’t too sick to enjoy this though.

Despite being less than 100%, the show must go on. I walked Zac to school early on Thursday for choir. While his older brothers have lost interest, Zac has embraced choir with enthusiasm.

2013-05-09 08.23.18There was more cooking from Sebastian. He made shortbread one evening.

2013-05-11 15.48.52Saturday morning was the first morning for Saturday winter sports for the year. But first, Sebastian and I had morning tea at LSR.

2013-05-11 09.06.06Then time for hockey. Sebastian is really playing very well – all the extra playing time with grown ups over summer and with the regional team is paying off.

Finally, it was Mother’s Day. While I still firmly believe it is a Hallmark Holiday and there are no presents in our house and I spent most of the day in bed, it is nice to have my boys to cuddle.
