On the weekend we went bush walking…our first bush walk together as a family. The Wolli Creek Regional Park is one of the inner west’s best kept secrets. A little pocket of native vegetation in the middle of suburbia. It’s a special place to us, because it’s where we got married several years ago (in the time I recall fondly as “the before”). It was strange being back with two small children in tow…the incessant chatter and rumble of little toddler feet sending nervous Eastern Water Skinks scurrying for cover. We were amazed at how excited the children were to be in the bush. It’s nature’s playground…with so much to see, hear, smell and touch.

Things I’m loving this month:

1. Birthday celebrations.

2. Vintage tablecloths.

3. Gin and tonic with fresh lime.

4. Roses from my uncle after a hard day with the kiddos.

5. Cheese…with pear, walnuts and a glass of red.

6. Sherman Alexie’s The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian.  It’s targeted at young adults but is a fabulous read and gives insight into the issues facing young indigenous people in America.
