Well gone are the days where the whole morning is taken up encouraging my son to take his medicine and follow his lengthy ritual to get to school.  These days he has a very reduced morning ritual (more like a normal child would have) so this morning while he was playing I went outside to our garden and enjoyed my time out there looking at the wonders of nature and taking some photos of our blossoming garden.  This is a photo of one of Jacob's pansies in full bloom.

August Break

Phew!  I made it through the month with a daily post on Lifescrap365.  I have to admit, just between you and I, when I accepted the challenge of posting a photo every day, inside I feared I wouldn't be able to keep up the pace.  But I did!  I made it.  In fact, I probably achieved more than I thought I would.  I thought I would maybe forget or not make time to post every day.  Even through the challenges I had with the blog and the other day to day life challenges that were thrown my way, I still managed to do it.  I guess that just goes to show that I probably regularly underestimate what I can do.  If you have missed what I was doing you can see it here:

With the technical challenges I had with blogger, there was very little time for any other postings.  One of my aims now is to continue the regular photos here and blog a little about the day.  If I was honest, as I have been day 3 without the pressure of blogging daily, I actually miss it.

Today I spent a wonderful day with my friend Diana who is visiting from Sydney.  It was lovely to spend a nice relaxed day chatting and catching up (and some good food of course).  When we were at the nursery we took the opportunity to use all the 'synthetic' flowers as a backdrop.

If you are a Dad (in whatever shape or form), have yourself a fantastic Father's Day.  I hope you get spoilt and get to do what you love to do.
