Charlotte drew a marker on the wall for when Tabitha would be old enough to go on the good pier rides. She has, out of nowhere, hit that height now. Let's go dodgems!

I miss street candids

The older Tabitha gets, the more I need to keep my eye on her when we're out. And, being honest, the more our time outside is occupied by general conversation. She's really great to talk to.

This, of course, means that I don't really walk around people-watching like I could when she was younger. Unless it's something huge happening right in my face, like this guy trying to take an ultra-low-angle portrait of his friend with an entire church steeple as the background. 10-out-of-10 for committing to the idea. It sorta looks like camera capoeira; peaceful and violent. I just wish I rolled a shallower depth of field by default. This would've benefitted from the background being less distracting.

In the unlikely event that this is you, please can I see the photo?

The school nativity pictures

I took some photos for the PTA at Tabitha's school to sell at the nativity. People have been so nice to me all week about them. I was stressed about messing it up but it actually went really well, and the photos are all super cute.

A while

There are those friends you don't see for a while. You're all busy; it's fine. You talk occasionally, and it's all good. But when you get to hang out it's like you see each other all the time and nothing's changed since you first met. Those friends are so, so good to see.

We wrapped up and went for a walk as the sun was setting, and it was very good.


I think I'm almost done sulking. We walked into town to get some Poutine from Befries and I took some photos. Shock, right?

Sea was so nice and calm today. Love when it's like that.

Found the king of the bins.

Watched these waves crashing a bit. Something about it was very satisfying.

They were doing something with a digger on the beach. Didn't know what. Still don't know what.

Then, the poutine. Been looking forward to this all week, and intrigued by the concept since the Worth it episode, and it did not disappoint. I was a bit apprehensive about cheese curds but they're just like a chewy mozzarella with more flavour so I'm completely into it. We had 3 - regular, topped with kimchi, and topped with stuffing. I love stuffing.

It was super filling, and I don't think I need to eat ever again. Probably will though.
