{simple things sunday}

I've missed posting a couple of Sundays.  And I really need to get my blogging back into gear, now that life is getting back on track.

My photo today tries to capture the intensity of the rain we have been experiencing here in Sydney lately.  We've been having 4 seasons in one day, going from sun and warmth, to strong winds, to dark skies and torrential rain.

Well here it is Sunday again, and boy what a week it has been.  Aidan has been in (and out of) hospital with a suspected heart attack!  Thanks goodness the angiogram was clear, and they put his chest pain and high enzyme levels down to the gastric bug he had last weekend.  And I can't believe it, but my baby girl has turned 11!  Oh my...where has that time gone?  We've had a small birthday party at home in amongst all the chaos.  We're so lucky we didn't end up going away as planned.  I don't think I could have coped with it all, and being away from home.

So today's photo represents my favourite Sunday thing to do.  There's nothing better than a sleep-in, and waking up to my favourtie cappuccino with skim milk and the sunday paper to read.

Nothing better than a coffee and reading the paper on Sunday morning

{simple things sunday} except it's monday!

I'm a day late posting this week.  We're still in the midst of summer school holidays, and life is busy, busy, busy!  Not to mention that Aidan has been sick since Saturday morning.  Poor thing headed to the doctors today.  Nothing major is wrong, but he just needs to take things easy for the next few days.

So our Sunday was spent at home again.  This picture is of our cat Tigger.  He's a gorgeous old man.  Nearly 16 years old now!  He's only got three legs, but manages really well.  And it's very rare to see him inside, but it's been a bit cold and windy, so a nice cuddle on the arm of the lounge is nice on a day like that.

Holy witchcraft and wizardry!  LOL!  Aidan and Em went to see the Harry Potter exhibition at the Powerhouse today, with Em's friend Amelia and her dad.  Long, long queues, but a great exhibition is how they described it!

I stayed home to catch up some long overdue washing, ironing and a general clean-up.  I must say, I've let things slip over the Christmas hols.

Anyway, I snapped this cute pic of my dog, Cody, while I was taking a break.  He's such a sooky dog, has to be right with you all the time.  He's at my feet if I'm walking around, and if I sit down, he's either sitting 'on' my feet, or right beside me on the couch.  So here he is on the couch.  Just look at that face.

Gotta love that face!

One blog I really love, that I keep going back to time and time again is Simple As That by Rebecca Cooper.  I love her style, and her gorgeous photos, and she is the author of one of the very first scrapbooking books I ever purchased, Real.Life.Scrapbooking.

Anyway, she has a challenge every week called Simple Things Sunday, which is about capturing and celebrating the simple things that have made you smile through the week.  It's all about the photos, and I've decided to join in.

So here is my first Simple Things Sunday post.  After a big NYE celebration, we spent a quiet day at home today.  Emma wanted to play board games.   It's such a simple way to pass the time, and spend some time together.
