Photo A Day Challenge for January
Day 1 – Me
So this is me 4 years ago the day I married Mr Point Five, 7 months pregnant and happy as
a pig in muck ♥
Day 2 – Breakfast
No excuses, I am disgusting I know. I have a couple of pieces of toast at about 9am but I
need at least 2-3 cups of this first, usually with a few pieces of chocolate to kick start the
Day 3 – Something I adore
The Magic of Christmas
Day 4 – Letterbox
Sadly, I get more email, most of which is spammy advertising from companies that I purchased an impulse buy from 2 years ago and havent been bothered to unsubscribe, than real letters.
Real letters that smell nice – I miss those.
Day 5 – Something I wore
A Red Shirt with cap sleeves and a belt – the day I proposed to my Beautiful Man.
Day 6 – Makes me SMILE
Sweet Peas never fail to make me close my eyes and breathe in with sweet delight. They remind me so very much of my grandmother (my Narnie) as my Papa always used to have them in his garden every year without fail – planted on ANZAC day. I like to think they are the reincarnations of Butterflies
Favourite City – New York. This is me in Dec06/Jan 07 – stayed at a cute apartment on Lexington and shopped in the Big Apple for three weeks straight – total heaven
Day 8 – My sky
This was my sky at midday today from our Driveway – 24C – perfect.
Day 9 – My Routine
Every evening (and I mean every) I pour the first of two glasses of wine after the kids have
This is me aged about 8 on the top of a rope ladder made by my Dad on our verandah and wearing a dress made by my Mum with my materiel of choice – a holly hobbie print. I have a plush smurf that I saved my pocket money up for to buy at the local chemist from memory. I am an only child and grew up in the hills of Perth, in Greenmount – my parents split up when I was 13 and I lived with my Mum during the week and my Dad on the weekend until year 12 then this switched around – moved out of home aged 18
Day 11 – where I sleep
this is where all the other bloggers post a picture of their beautifully made beds with no mess or wet towels on it in the middle of a pristine and tastefully decorated bedroom.
My bedroom is not like that, although I love our king size bed and its the boys’ favourite place to be. Besides, Mr Point Five is still in the bed right now – not sure he would appreciate the attention.
So this is a picture of where I WISH I slept
