It is Saturday and the last official day of summer 2009. It is a little overcast and humid and heavy but we are still comfortable in shorts and cossies and t shirts and bare feet on polished floor boards.
In the background I have a load of dark washing tumbling and spinning through the last minutes of a spin cycle with whites ready to soak in bleach and then wash. Leonnie is watching a dvd on a Macbook in her room and Geni is catching a last few minutes of sleep before her friends begin arriving. Tony has already left for the Coast to go scuba diving with his friends. We girls, and all of Geni’s friends are heading to the beach for the day. As one does.
I brought work home with me this weekend and will work my way through that this evening and spend some time on it tomorrow.
Tess is still pregnant although each day brings us all closer to meeting Abigail. I have a book to read, people to love and care for, I can breathe… it is a good day.
