Sailing away to exotic places May 28, 2009

Filed under: Thoughts — Admin @ 11:56 pm

I’m taking my kids, packing my bags, (o.k. the hubby can come too), and leaving the financial woes and swine flu scare of Victoria. For 2 weeks anyway. I figure the zero swine flu count of Phuket is safer than living in Melbourne at the moment.

We’re off to Phuket! Adventure!! and happy family memories!!  After the 11 hours of air travel and transfers.

Who knew a holiday would take such precision planning to get underway. Organising passports, paperwork, housesitter, dogsitter, taichi class sitter, vaccinations, what to pack.

I walked out of the chemist yesterday with a plastic bag FULL of medical/firstaid stuff that every good mother should have in the tropics.   Just in case.   

So we’re on our way, to ride elephants, meet monkeys, learn a new language and visit some temples for Yogic inspiration. And I’ll have lots of photos and trinkets to show you when I get back.

Bye

 

PS: I can’t believe you haven’t left a comment about my Mothers Day present (below) yet!!!

The Women’s Wellbeing Weekend, Victoria, went off with a bang once again. This time a whole new group of ladies relaxed, laughed, danced, knitted, Tai Chi’d, yoga’d, and challenged themselves. Making new friendships along the way.IMG_1161

 Thankyou Girls!

 

Dr. Seuss’ wisdom May 10, 2009

Filed under: Words & Washing — Admin @ 12:23 am

I was reading to the 3 year old a book she chose. She arose triuphantly from the pile on the floor, which were a second ago books neatly stacked on a bookshelf! Dr Seuss “Oh the places you’ll go!”. Ok, here we go for the nite time read, praying she of all 3 years would blissfully fall asleep asap!kissing fish
As I read and read and read, I couldn’t believe the treasure of a book, she found in that bookstack! Dr Seuss cleverly masked his picture book, underneath a brilliant world of his wisdom, like that of a person who has lived his life, like a grandfather. His optimism, coupled with his realism, of times that may be sad, just touched my heart unexpectedly, I too came to back to my life as ms three snored loudly, as i closed that special book,..:you’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So….get on your way!’ by Dr Seuss
