To my more experienced blogging friends I pose this question:
Is it preferable to wait for the unlikely convergence of free time, inspiration and sleeping toddlers to create The Perfect Post, or does one just dash off a bit of news?
I ask because I am sitting up in the study clutching a sleeping T2 in my right arm while I try to make contact with the world out there. I could take her down to her bed, but then might never make it back. And yet I feel my shoulder pulling slowly out of its socket as I type...
I really wanted to write something deep and meaningful about the lessons I am learning from my daughters (T1 did her first cartwheel and handstand this weekend). About how perseverance really does pay off - I have never seen someone who was not put off by doing a bazillion terrible non-handstands! And how our acceptance of failure is often all that stands between us and success.
Oh, and I also wanted to write about our visit to Kirstenbosch Gardens (imagine I was advanced enough to insert a link here) where said cartwheel was performed and how it is one of the best places in the world for children of all ages. There is grass, there is shade, there is a stream... It really is heaven (imagine I have downloaded photos from our camera in six months...). And next month the Sunset concerts begin.
But that will all have to wait until... Well, as Mr Roberts would say: "The cows come home".
