This is what the sky looked like and i was hoping to catch late in the day last week. Isn't it amazing to see them swirling around the clocktower....Either they are on their way out for feed or something stirred them up.
these photos are from the Bendigo Advertiser staff....
cute little faces....
love the see through look and shape of their bodies...
Spoke to Di about the 'regurgitation' too at craft, there were quite few laughs to be had!
Its the long weekend, [Queens Birthday, even though its not!] always one of mixed emotions for hubby and me. On one hand its nice to have 3 days off and i wont go back to work til Thurs as i have meeting on Tues and my day off Wed. woohoo!
I have been painting the kitchen table and here are some peeks...hoping to mask it out tonight and start the fun stuff tomorrow...cant wait to start the actual painting!
And its 20 years ago today that our son Jack was stillborn. I don't know where that 20yrs as gone and i didn't think i would ever get through that first year but thanks to support from family, friends and the SANDS group, i think we both came out the other side pretty well.
Our midwife was fantastic , really ahead of her time and that helped so much with her kindness, validation, and the beautiful photos and clothes she had organised for our little one.
Sometimes i feel like it has happened to another person, it feels a bit surreal but I get his things out and the memories come flooding back.
i only have to look at Lucy to know what he would've looked like, same eyes, round face and dark hair :) no offence Luce!
One thing it has made me is stronger, be more compassionate and really appreciate the two beautiful girls i have now....
I thought long and hard about posting this and will probably still delay hitting the publish button but i need to get this off my chest today. I'm not looking for sympathy, but i think stillbirth is something not talked about much.
Enough said :)
Hubby and Lucy have just gotten back from Castlemaine and they picked these amazing hand carved stamps from the Gallery there.
arent they beautiful...
They are Indian, wooden and about 4-5 Cm's deep, unreal ))) They remind me of the twelve apostles
