walking

...in the bush. I've been finding it hard to strike a balance between living, crafting and blogging lately, and unfortunately, blogging has fallen by the wayside. It disappoints me, because I love it here, but with three adventurous young boys (and one big one) to keep me busy, that's just the way it is. So, this week I will be trying to post everyday about what I/we are doing. I'm predicting there will be a lot of the latter, as it's school holidays in these parts, and I will have all my little friends around to keep me company. Yay, no morning fights for two weeks!
today we set out early to a local national park for a morning bush walk. Lucky for us we did set out early, because today turned out to be a stinker, and we did see one red-belly black sunning himself by the side of the track. It's funny, you always think you might see one, but it's pretty rare that you actually do, and then when you do, it's like, "oh shit, let's go back now". But, we made it out of there in tact, well, except for a minor grazed knee which was quickly remedied with a splash of water (mental note:must get some calendula to keep in my bag), and came home for an afternoon in the pool. Needless to say, there are three very tired boys (and two adults for that matter) here tonight.
p.s. in case you're wondering, yes, willow is wearing a cape in that picture, because you never know what kind of evil villains await you in the australian bush

I've never seen one in the bush. I'm not sure exactly what I would do but I probably would panic and grab all children and run. ENjoy the school holidays!
