Day 802

Note to self: never sob after a spray tan. Facial stripes are so last season ...


Yesterday Tahlia came home from school sobbing.  We hugged and we sobbed.  She cried because it was her last day of primary school and everyone was feeling a great deal of love, gratitude, relief, expectation, fear, loss and loneliness.  I cried because the entire school gave them a guard of honor to thank them for their leadership and to wish them well, and I missed being part of the outpouring of love and gratitude.

Then I headed off for a spray tan and came home to relay my day to Mum on the phone and started sobbing all over again. Hence the new look facial stripes.  Forget my inner lioness, I am now exploring the merits of my inner tiger.

Today I am grateful that my children go to an amazing school and that Tahlia's years in primary school are actually worth crying about.

  1. That is so lovely! I have that to look forward to next summer. Sorry about the stripy face - rubbing lemon on the rest of it should remove it all (but you'll smell lemony for a while!)
