Hello, it's a Wednesday, and it feels like a pretty good life right at the moment!
Well, there's this British girl called Sarah who has made the same move as me to this wonderful country.
She blogs about living in a beach cottage in what she refers to as 'the lucky country'.
Sarah reminds me to appreciate all that is around me and to take pleasure in this good life....
She has transformed her home on the Sydney beaches to a fabulous family cottage in a creative, thrifty, and stylish way, oh, and all with a wicked sense of humour! You can go and have a nosy at her blog if you click here. (Warning - you may be a while, there's a lot of stuff to drool over!)
So in the spirit of Sarah's Good Life Wednesday, here is my take on what I'm appreciating at the moment...

Last Saturday was the highlight.
My ballet dancing rugby loving eight year old and I headed into the city to Suncorp Stadium to watch the semi finals of the Super 15 rugby competition. We were so excited! Sibs usually gets to go to the rugby games when they are played in the afternoon, but this was an evening game.
Mother and daughter caught the bus and eyed up all the fans (including the teenage boy that Sibs informed me in a stage whisper was "wearing red undies"!! - I hasten to add that he was also wearing rather low slung jeans!)

We had such a good time. Sibs cheered and chanted and was thrilled when the Queensland Reds won the match. We headed home on the bus and her eyes were still taking it all in, even though this bus ride was full of families, kids and the somewhat older generation of fans..
Within ten minutes of being home she was curled up in bed asleep.
Last Saturday was another sign for me that my little girl is growing up.
I'm treasuring these days.
