I was sitting in the office this afternoon, by myself, listening to the sound of the creek at the bottom of the gully coming in through the open balcony door and thinking how lucky I am to be working in such a lovely environment. I’ve been meaning to take photos for a while now but I always think of it too late and don’t have time to muck about with the camera before rushing off to be on time for the kids, but today I wasn’t in a huge hurry, so photos there are.
If you click through to the larger image you can see a smattering of white gum-blossom in the tops of some of the trees.
That photo is a little over-exposed because I wanted to capture the greenery up close to our building, here’s how the sky really looked today.
There’s nothing like a bit of nostalgic reminiscence to brighten the afternoon. My copy of The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie was given to me on my 7th birthday by my Nana, my Dad’s mum. She always gave me beautiful books as presents, usually purchased at The Children’s Bookshop at Beecroft. Snugglepot and Cuddlepie is held together with yellowing sticky tape, testament to many re-reads.
