-Roses from my parents gardens. 
-Poppet's bruised knees as she climbs up to look for my 'treasures'. Anything sparkly, shiny or fragile she loves. But she also spends a lot of time wrestling with, and running after, her brother. Hence the bruised knees! 
-I told Poppet no more teve for the day and she buried herself under my quilt to cry and sulk. Finally she slept in her little burrow. 
-Poppet and I at the park. I'm wearing a maternity top of my mum's from the '70s. Sometimes there's a point to hoarding… I'm just trying to work out where the line is... 
-Sprocket and Poppet exchanging a pretend ransom of 'gold and lollies' - I think something to do with the Daddy-Troll who has been chasing them around the lake, but the story line got me a bit confused. 
-Welcome storm clouds.The cooler weather and the rain has been wonderful. I'm hoping for a real down-pour soon! The fire at the mine seems all but out, and we're only getting the occasional few hours here and there of ash and smoke. It's so wonderful to be able to go into the garden again, to leave the windows open. Every new shower seems to bring us closer to the fire finally being extinguished. 
-Sprocket at school sports day. We're navigating the hard crossing into the world of school. Leaving my little boy in the classroom every morning when he's all teary is breaking my heart. I'm hoping now things are more settled he'll start enjoying it more…
