“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
if this man asked me on a weekend rendezvous in Barcelona, i'd say yes!
cos i'm frivolous and impulsive like that, and i've had a few mojitos. it's still summer holidays here, and we're having beachy days and nights, but egads! the kiddos have started counting sleeps until school starts. i'm not counting those, but i'm aware that the day approacheth. so we are buying up skool uniforms and roman sandals (puke) left right and centre - we still have a trailer load of skool stationery to purchase (but i refuse to get the prescribed THREE pencil sharpeners for mick). raych and joel are hatching a plan for Big Weekend Bake Offs where they stack the freezer with Delectable Lunchbox Fillers. then they all (including BD) have four weeks at school (i'll be a lady of leisure - hopefully hopping in and out of friends' sunny classrooms to get my head back in the game)... and at the beginning of march...uni starts... and Bulldog and i'll have that year's oasis. i can't wait. the whole package is pretty tempting, really. once i get over my little people being absent.
