A little deflated
Australia Day was hot, not as hot as predicted, but steamy none the less. We started the day with a dip at the beach to cool off, but a heavy fog made the whole experience very, very eerie.
We had a great barbie – prawns, butterfly veal, salads and, of course, Pavlova. The first pav I've ever made from scratch. It went off pretty darn well, except for a little incident with the cream. We listened to the Hottest 100, I knew NONE of the songs, which proves I'm officially old. The kids played great imaginary games and then cooled off under the sprinkler and cooled us off as well.
After everyone had left, the kids were finally asleep in bed, Skip and I dug out the leftover pav (above). It was a little deflated, a little tired, a little splodgy – a little how I felt. It was still delicious though!
Today I'm feeling a little flat. I seem to live with this constant feeling like I should be doing something, that something is missing and I don't know what it is. It drives me crazy. I'm hoping to cheer up and take my eldest gal out, just the two of us. Spend some time together and chat before she heads off to preschool. Play ladies.
