to rain heavy and steady for almost a week now
gum boots and raincoats and mittens and beanies
with my little brother visiting from canada
simple fingerless mittens for the daddy-o and me
mandarins and oranges and pomegranates too
delicious mamabaked meals from the freezer
the winter solstice with a lantern walk
my mum and how much she does for me
locally made uggies to keep tiny toes warm
it really does take a village
tiles and taps and tanks and tradies
with my beloved over fine food and wine
as my baby boy takes his first wobbly steps
...and thank you all for your concern.
the house on the hill stood strong
in the wild and windy weather.
