We all know that life is busy, sometimes life gets crazy busy.   There are places you would like to be, things we'd like to do, but life gets in the way.  Often that's a good thing.  It might actually make us be more present.

I've wanted to be here. I've missed posting my 52 project.  And I have so many more things I want to share.

The main problem though has not been so much of life being busy, but more our computer shitting itself!!  WAY more problematic!!

It really has put a few things on the back burner.  Keeping up with blogs, online purchasing, procrastinating, have all been reduced!  But more importantly a personal project has also taken a line in the queue.

On a positive note, I have managed to get the house pretty clean, for all of 15 minutes!

So, I may not be here for a while, but when I return I'll have a great deal to share.

Take care for now friends.

You know when you find one of those eating spots where it is more than just the sense of taste being satisfied?  And the time you would normally spend waiting for your coffee or lunch, is being spent perusing art works or vignettes, or admiring the lighting and other installations?

Well Vanessa and I recently found one such place. I'm not sure if we left inspired, in awe, completely satisfied, a little confused and bewildered, or a combination of them all.  Either way, it's one of those places that I would go back to again and again, just to see what was in store for me the next time.

It's been awhile since my first Kids Were Here installment.

They're definitely still here, and making their presence known.

More Kids Were Here.

I haven't been here much lately.  Apart from the 52 Project I've hardly been here at all.

Instead, over the past several weeks, I've been enjoying my time with these two beautiful ladies.  My Mum and my sister.  and not to mention and surprise wee visit from my brother!

They've helped me in more ways I can tell.

They've helped with my family life, with my well being, my emotional state, my day to day life, my housework, and my landscaping (so much landscaping!).  They have given tirelessly and unconditionally.  I am ever so grateful for all of the help they have given to all of us.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've got a bit of blogging to catch up on.  Well, mainly in the form of images, but images I want to share.  So be prepared for some photo bombardment.

We all miss you Ned and Aunty, so terribly already.  Come back soon.
