Our eldest has just turned 6.
Surprisingly courageous and tough at times.
Rarely silent or still.
A natural and instinctive gardener.
Someone who finds good in almost everyone and everything.
A collector of old sheep ear tags and millions of bits of paper.
An animal lover.
An adventurous eater but always saves her favourite bits until the end.
Proud to have just learnt how to zest a lemon.
We are not really into birthday party extravaganzas. On Sunday we met our neighbours in the shade near one of our dams. We shared a cake covered in fresh flowers, some home made bread, hummus and a cheese platter.
The kids caught some yabbies, collected sticks for the fire and pretended to be lions and tigers. The adults enjoyed the sunshine, easy conversation and a cold beer.
As with most good birthday parties there were a few tears towards the end.
Happy Birthday Annabelle, life would be empty without you x
