This week, I know that some days are yellow, some days are blue (to quote the late, great Dr Seuss).
I know that Halloween dressing up and trick or treating might not be an Australian tradition, and that it makes a lot of people on Twitter very grumpy, but that it sure is fun for the kids, and actually really nice communal time for the kids in our street.
I know that I'm glad to have Halloween as a force with which to push back against the absurdity of Christmas marketing in September. "Nothing Christmassy til after Halloween" works!
I know that Melbourne Cup Day has an entirely different resonance for me now that I have three children, and do NaNoWriMo each year. No more champagne, chicken, strawberries and carousing, but instead I have cuddles, stories and a writing sprint :-)
I know that it's getting to be a long time since husband and I last had a few hours together without any of the kids, and the strain of that is starting to show.
I know that this makes me all the more excited about our tickets to see k d lang next Saturday night - grandparent babysitting, and 5 hours out for us!
