My Ruby Tuesday

This morning I was listening to a song which sparked a memory for me of being a little girl and being in the car with my mother driving and I would fall to sleep, sometimes for real and sometimes pretending, and when we pulled up home my mum (Leisa) would carry me inside like a baby- It use to make me feel like a kitten being carried by its mother into a nest of safety. Until one day when I started getting too big to be carried and instead I would have to find my own way to the nest, but my mum would still be next to me making sure that I did.

I remember this one Christmas time when me and my sister Emmily were whining about 'wanting to do something christmasy' but we couldn't think of anything, so my mum lit some candles around the living room, played an old Christmas carol record, made us some egg flip milkshakes and said "We'll pretend this is the olden days, it is snowing outside and we are listening to a gramophone whilst drinking egg nog on a Christmas eve "- Mum was always creative and imaginative with things like that.

One of the harder things of being away from home has definitely been not being able to get a nice big bear hug from my mum whenever I need one. When I was in Vancouver I had a vial of her perfume that she wears and I used to sprinkle it on my pillow so that I could smell her as I fell asleep- but alas my sister took that vial when she left for New Zealand, so now all I have is a coat she gave me when I was back in Perth this Christmas, that I'm scared to wear too often in case the air steals her scent away from it.

Oh mum, how I miss thee!

Ahhh sweet mother bird

  9. Thanks Marit! Well I live in Toronto at the moment because I got a working Visa for Canada and after a year spent in Vancouver decided it was time to venture on to the East coast and see what the differences were. Toronto is a big city (some people say it is a smaller version of New York)- and I like living in Big Cities because there is always something to do (-:
