A confession from inside the wardrobe door...Summer days
...Justine spied us hiding in the back of the wardrobe, our satin sheen standing out from all the heavy black shoes. She lent in and pulled us out from the pile. She held us to her chest for a moment and closed her eyes and dreamed of the warm spring days she had to look forward to very soon! The walks along the waterfront, the first sight of blossom on her daily walks, surf days at the local beach and stops for all the delicious and wonderful flavors at the icecream truck on the way home. Summer dresses, t-shirts,swimsuits, flowing fabric and these shoes. She opened her eyes and peeked out the slatted wooden blind on the window, it was pouring with rain, falling heavily on the deck and the garden. It was foggy and freezy, dismayed she put us back, neatly, front and centre and then pulled out her long black boots instead, sat down on the edge of the bed and put them on over her thick black tights. "Soon",she whispered to us...

the day I've described above ( the cold one) was exactly the weather of my home town today! So we stayed home with the heater in the cosy and warm, watched the Wiggles ( for the umpteenth time,they are great but I have to get some new kid videos!) and Andrew and I had a big crayon and pencil session on the kitchen table, which was great fun! I also nearly completed the Mermaid painting I've been working on when he was asleep and perused some fabulous shoes on the net thanks to Miss Emily! What's really strange at the moment when we are out on walks is that it seems three seasons have merged here, it's winter most of the trees are starkers, but a few still have autumn leaves and I can't believe it but I've seen blossom two months early! What's going on? And hurry up spring, I want to wear something pretty with polka dots!
