up with the birds

 

I've sucessfully lasted three whole weeks at my new job - favourite aunty/nanny extraordinaire. It's been exhausting learning how to manage, entertain, feed, bath, play, assist with sleep, encourage crawling and sympathise as teeth pop through but I think I'm getting the hang of it*. The hardest part is getting up so early in the morning! I am NOT a morning person by nature and no matter how early I try to go to bed I usually just lie there tossing and turning, yelling at myself to get some sleep.

But the plus side of my early morning starts is that I get to see the sunrise over Sydney Harbour as I catch the ferry to Manly. What a way to travel! I feel like I am adventuring on the high seas or in some 19th century classic romance novel that I probably wouldn't actually enjoy reading but it feels good to imagine all the same.


Sometimes the weather is a little gloomy....


But mostly I just feel happy to be alive.


*I've started having power naps when my little man goes down for sleeps. Works wonders! Win win situation. Getting paid to nap has to be my dream job!

That. Is. Awesome.

I love the ferry too. Its such a highlight and I cant believe you get to travel on it to work. How utterly soothing.

Oh, glory! My new commute made me smile today, as well. How you start the day really does make a difference - even if you aren't impressed by being awake!

I got your letter last week, in the middle of one of THOSE days. You know what I mean. I think you must have caught some of those rays of morning sunshine and put it in an envelope!
