We've enjoyed a lovely weekend.
Together again after Sarah's first two weeks at boarding school. And while I don't want to make too much of it, as many others endure far greater tests, it's been a challenge for us all to adapt to our new 'normal'. We've missed her terribly, as she's missed us, and I'm hopeful and certain as we fall into our new routine, it will all become easier.
I will forever cherish the smile on Sarah's face as she walked into the kitchen Friday night after being picked up in town by Dad.
The other kids raced to the shed to greet her, and the calamity of everybody talking at once carried on into the night.
She has certainly been missed.
Dad left early Saturday morning for Charters Towers, we spent the morning mowing and trying to get the whipper-snipper started. A more confounded piece of machinery there has never been. Another snake sighting as I mowed confirmed the need for keeping the grass down.
We then hit the local pool.
before coming home for a dinner of pizza
made on my new pizza stone (thankyou), and a dessert of profiteroles.
I can see Saturdays fast becoming my favourite day of the week.
