Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

Mountain days

…so we saw the new year in (what fun we had, at a family afternoon) , and then my little family departed for the mountains while I waited to do some work on the second of January, once that was done, I was off, off to those mountains. It was good, and hot! Flip, it was hot!

The highlight of the weekend, was the visit from the fairies. Thandi and her friend Charlotte had built a fairy house, with a garden and a bench and a bed and a garden, and it was really sweet. Imagine their surprise and excitement when they discovered the next morning that overnight the fairies had come along, moved in and made a few changes to the house! “This is too wonderful!!!”; “Aaaah”

The boys did lots of work, chopping, and sawing and bushwhacking – give a boy and chainsaw and a happy lad he is! Us girls raked and swept and supervised the fairy folk.

We really do relish the time in the mountains – I am now starting to get excited about our “One day when” dreams, when we build our house up there, and I get to fall asleep, with the breeze stirring the trees, and wake up as the sun tickles me awake, and the smell of the forest settles in the recesses of my brain.
