Goodbye Hello



Hello new week, with all your possibility and probability and inevitability. It’s nice to see you.

Goodbye last week. It’s nice to see you go. You were a bit off-ish. A bit edgy. A bit rub up the wrong way. By the time Sunday woke, I was on to you. We rolled out of town, went looking for air.

I found some. Magic, even. I found it here. I didn’t find it in the mazes, or the gift shop or during our fleeting attempt to find gnomes for a lolly reward. I found it in the bottom paddock amongst a tangle of blackberry bushes with full bellies and blackberry dribbles down hands and t-shirt fronts.



I found it looking up,



I found it in this little adventurer,



Collector,



And in those knees,



I found it in fairy cups,



In... Pardon me, Mr Tree. So sorry to disturb you...



I found it playing rhinoceros amongst thorny roses,



In those heady, pungent roses (WISH I could blog a smell),



Hello this week,



Let’s get busy.

A magical afternoon ... somewhere this week , when you least expect it , you should see an elf out of the corner of your eye .

Beautiful, beautiful post. I have such fond memories if playing rhinoceros among the roses near the front gate at our old primary school. My kids do it now too. Thanks for making me smile, once again. Hope this week brings just what you're after with it's fresh new perspective!

Alright, week, listen here. I've had about enough of your gadabout attitude to me and mine. I've filled you up with meetings, applications and interactions; there's also granny visits, dates with friends and the odd bit of schmoozing: I've done my part! So, you'd better deliver or we'll take away Wednesdays.

Kylie said...

Yes, I agree. Last week was at bit ordinaire... Looking forward to a lovely one this week. Love your pics and your Sunday adventure :) Kx

We went to That Maze the week we stayed at Rosebud on the day that Melbourne won the highest humidity prize for the Whole World (take that! Singapore) and we ended up having to cheat I mean pool resources with another kid to claim the lolly prize for gnome/fairy finding. And we most certainly did not venture into the blackberry bramble because we were pretty much OVAH it by then! So well done you. And here's to an extra good This Week!

Mel said...

Ahhhh ... it's almost like being there myself ... almost! here's hoping this week is full of much more niceness and opportunities to look up xx

One Flew Over said...

Sarah said...

I'm with you on last week--not my best. Here's to a new, fresh, rose-scented week!

Melissa G said...

Urgh! Those off-weeks do mess with your system. Sometimes there is nothing like getting back to nature to kick the blues right in the…
;P

Thanks for taking me on that amazing trip, I felt like I was in a arty movie and got carried away with your poetic words, beautiful. I'm with you in waving last week goodbye, well actually also sending it off with a couple of unsavoury words. Hello, new week, hello! xo

flowerpress said...

poetry, love it.
I hate to spoil the party but I don't like this week either.
I'm going to start my new one tomorrow instead, and if we don't like that one then, as Angus says, Wednesday is history.

Tas said...

Wow. Your Sunday more than makes up for the rest of the crappy week in my book :)

Kylie said...

There's one of those rainbow light spot bokeh thingies in your leaf picture! I LOVE those, Mrs Wordsworth.

Loz and Dinny said...

Beautiful. Whimsical. Felt like I'd spent Sunday with you ... without you having to experience crying in stereo and conversation that doesn't quite make sense ....

ecoMILF said...

amen!

melissa said...

I'm all head-spinny from that first photo!

Glad to hear your weekend was a whole lot of magic. xx

Megan.K. said...

That was a wonderful journey to travel on Tania. I'm with you on how crapola last week was, the last two weeks in fact.
This one is shaping up ok though - yay!

Nice... I feel that I should have been reading this post with a nice cool glass of chardy in my hand! (even though it's 9.46am!!)

...Just LOVELY...a refreshing change of pace to Facebook...my addiction yet again ( thought I beat that ages ago...):-/
But discovering your blog...and the world of blogs has given me a new perspective...or maybe a new addiction! :)

MiM said...

Rolling out of town, berry stained hands and magic are music to my ears!

A Peppermint Penguin said...

Oh that's just beautiful, all of it.

Do I want to know what happened to the littlest adventurers trousers?!

Cheers,
