Stumbled upon this lovely blog after rummaging through someone else's referrer logs, a blog by Australian Chinese mom-of-one, Karen Cheng. Nice little snippets of life in Perth and her family. It also helps that she is quite a hottie. But don't tell my wife I said that.
Callum LOVES pointing at strangers. It's his new thing. He'll squeal "Ooo! Ooo!" and frantically wave his hands around and points at them, until they wave back. If they don't... he scrunches up his nose and growls at them instead. It's very funny.
Yesterday I left Callum with my mum and spent a couple of hours sitting in a cafe reading a book. Hot coffee. Hot apple pie. The warm sun on my back. I plunged deep into a lush world of kings and magicians. Elves and dwarves. A journey of two boys through an alien invasion. I don't usually read fantasy novels. And I didn't enjoy Lord of the Rings. So I am surprised at how pleasant this book has been.
I resurfaced as the cafe staff began to stack chairs. Time had flown. The setting sun now throwing coins of light onto the wooden floors. The evening breeze slowly pushing the pockets of warmth from the windows. It has been a long time since I've felt so refreshed. And it felt goooood.
