Day 77

August 17th 2017

I know I've missed a fair few days, but in all honesty I just didn't know what to write.

The events in the news lately have just made me SO SAD.

I want to rant about The Don - the man who is condoning bigotry, rascism and hate and is currently the 'leader' of the USA.

I want to scream and yell and cry, and say how could people be so awful. But people have always been awful, it's just that I thought we as a global humanity were headed in the direction of good. But we aren't. And I don't know how to cope with that.

What it boils down to is this.

LOVE IS LOVE AND HATE IS HATE.

My children know that people are people. How much melanin a person has in their skin is absolutely irrelevant, as is the religion or beliefs they hold in their personal life, as is whether they associate as a guy, girl, both or nothing, as is who they marry.

I hope my children are in the majority, I hope that many, many parents are raising their children as we are. I fear they are not.

Peace, Love and Tolerance. ALWAYS 💕✌💕

Days 71 - 72

August 11-12 2017

I wish I was more technologically competent so I could share the sound right now.

It is bucketing down.

I know I keep harping about the weather but I'm having a hard time remembering the last time winter was this insane. It's seriously just massive cold fronts, one after the next with very little reprieve in between. This weekend we have apparently three massive fronts coming off the Indian ocean, all in the space of 48 hours - including tomorrow nights' which is expected to bring wind in excess of 125km p/h.

😑😑😑😑

On another note, here is the completely adorable Penelope Wonderwoman modelling part of her Halloween costume. She has chosen to be Rainbow Dash, one of the My Little Ponies 💖

Days 67 - 70

August 7 - 10

This winter is trying to kill me, I'm sure of it.

It's not so much that it's cold, it's winter in Western Australia. It's not really that cold (although it is).

It's the cloud cover and rain. It's doing my head in.

So it's not even the middle of August and we've pretty much reached our entire monthly average for rain already. July was ridiculously wet. It's like living in Victoria again.
