Oh Happy Day

Doesn't this pic just about sum it up? I love my country... and it appears, so does the angel.

She is such a trooper! She has crossed the Atlantic, gone from living like a hermit to being surrounded be dozens of adoring aunties, uncles, grannies, grandads, some sober, some not, but all adoring and whisking her off to be adored by more aunties et al. And she isn't complaining!

And her mama is eternally grateful.

Grateful for the other mama friends who have completely different parenting styles, but don't judge. Grateful for friends who are there to talk about everything from nappies and boobs to Brangelina. Grateful for fabulous friends who have houses on the beach and allow us to come stay. Grateful for wonderful friends who take the angel to see the cool stuff over-there so that her mama can be not-over-there, even if it is only for 5 minutes. Grateful for grannies who cook breakfast, lunch, dinner. Grateful for a wonderful funny dude who looks after himself, doesn't mind the hours of girl talk, or at least doesn't complain, and fits in with ease.

Life is good.

Particularly like the gratitude for funny guy who bless his heart never seemed to mind if he'd been forgotten for a few hours - amusing himself with a guitar or alternatively by doing the dishes. Nice one!

And Angel's bikini is to die for! I want one in my size... maybe my butt will fit in hers...

Look at you Mama! So glad you are home safely and enjoying your time with everyone. . . and that Angel is doing perfectly with it all. Good stuff - only with I could be there with you all!
