Good Morning Baby Girl,
I hope you are well.
It has been a couple of weeks since my last blog because we have been so busy! Nonna looked after you while Dad and I went to a ball. (You slept the whole time – Nonna was upset as she was looking forward to cuddles).
Then we had Aunty A come to stay while Dad went to Sydney for work. Aunty A and I bought you some sunglasses and when we put them on you we were not allowed to take them off!
We also went for swims in the pool which you enjoyed – as long as the sun was not in your eyes!
When Dad arrived home from Sydney you were very happy to see him and we were then able to start getting ready for our big camping adventure! We head out to Coombadja which is inland from Grafton. We normally go with quite a few families for Easter but this year it was us and Nonna and Poppy Roo. Aunty A had to work so she was not able to come either. We go to this property because Poppy Roo’s friend owns it and Poppy Roo has some Wagyu cattle on the property. It is great for kayaking and swimming as it is on the Mann River. Dad also proposed to me there and said one day he would like to take our children there – and this year we did!
There is a lot of preparation to go camping but it is definitely worth it! Nonna and Poppy Roo went in their tent so they could help us with all of our gear. It is nice not to have any phone signal and to have to walk to the toilet (hole in the ground) and boil water on the fire etc. It makes you appreciate being able to switch a light on when you are at home! You had a bath in a milk crate (just like I did when i was your age). You enjoyed it even though you like to spread out in the big bath now.
The weather was not great this time but it was nice to spend some quality time with Nonna, Poppy Roo and Dad without televisions, phones and iPads. You had such a nice time in the fresh air and even fell asleep when we had to pack up a day early – you are such a good girl and loved the bunny Rabbit that you received from Nonna and Poppy Roo for Easter.
We are home now and unpacked and repacking ready to go to America on Thursday! Your first overseas trip! I am nervous for you but I am sure that you will handle the trip with ease and probably have less jet lag then me!
I have two tips for for you this week. Th first is that you should not wait for Friday, for Summer, for someone to fall in love with you etc. Happiness is achieved when you stop waiting for it and make the most of the moment that you are in. Don’t waste the time you have my Love.
The other is to treat people as you think they should be, because then you will help them become what they are capable of becoming. I think it is important to try to understand people before judging them.
All My Love,
