I’m sure it has seemed quiet in this part of the blogosphere lately. The month of August and, now, September brings with it a range of anniversaries that require Ms Oh Waily’s attention.
Back on August 17th my little girl, Miss Oh Waily, stopped being so little once again. She turned four. Although talking with her sometimes you would be forgiven for thinking there was a much older personality residing in that still delicate little body.
We were lucky to have Gran and Pop Oh Waily visit us for that week, and Miss Oh Waily lapped up all of the attention and the gifts.
Then just a little over a week later the Oh Waily family could celebrate their first full year of living in our capital city. We have spent equal amounts of time on both sides of the large and beautiful harbour. And we are most happy living here. It will be something of a shame to remove ourselves back to Auckland when the time comes.
Then a matter of a few days ago, on the first day of Spring, my little boy turned two. Where did that time go? It doesn’t seem so long ago that he was a little babe in arms. And now he is chattering away like there are not enough words in the world for him to learn and use.
But events do not slow down on our anniversary front, Gran Oh Waily has a birthday in a week and Auntie H has a milestone the following week. It is certainly a celebratory time of year and just in time for the fine, crisp Spring weather to shine down on us.
