It’s Fringe time! The Adelaide Fringe Festival has brought it’s magic to town once again. I was lucky enough to be invited along to see a performance of The Hand of Time on Sunday arvo. It sounded like the perfect outing for Pebble and I, and we took my SIL, Julie and niece, Sarah, along for the ride. I was especially keen to because the play was about a girl who could stop time… which has been my ultimate dream super power since I was a kid!

Five years old. Pebble is five years old! This is only the beginning really, isn’t it? But it feels SO big, this number. Five is an important turning point, she’s a big school kid now.

I’ve decided to take a break for the rest of the year, and into January 2015. I need some screen free time with my family and some time to think about where I want to take Octavia and Vicky in the future. Octavia and Vicky is my third baby and I love it so very much. I’m so grateful to all of YOU because somehow this little blog has grown bigger than I ever imagined, and that couldn’t have happened without your support.
While I’m taking stock of things I’ll be enjoying Christmas with my little (and very big extended) family, and soaking up every moment of Pebble’s last few weeks at home before she starts school in the new year.
I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays, I hope you make the most of the time with your loved ones too.
