A little sushi place.

Varsity Lake, 11am.

Thursday is my new 'Moments' day.

For when I do something that I wouldn't normally. A simple little thing but one that makes memories.

So, today, Chantal has a long break between classes which she usually spends in the library or doing group work with other students. I picked her up and we went for lunch at a little sushi place near where she's finishing Yr 12, she loves this place as the ladies who work here are all so polite and gracious, not to mention that she loves to eat with chop sticks.

The little sushi shop

It was so nice to do something spontaneous. We covered many topics, her law presentation just handed to her in which she received a HD and as she's going into law, many assorted legal issues, the Australian diet and the way it has encompassed foods from many cultures, the school kids who came in to buy their lunch who 20 years ago would not have seen a sushi shop, her soon to be graduation, should she invest her savings from a little job where she works serving donuts, 15 hours per week, her nephew whom she adores and wants to buy presents for all the time and her favourite question...what are we doing on the weekend?

Cucumber sushi with pickled ginger.


Back to school.

Soon, my precious 15 year old will be grown up, forging her life and off and away. Precious moments.

Hope all my blogger friends are well and all is good for you.

Take care,

Chantal looking so sophistocated and learned. She will make one smart Lawyer.

These moments are so precious.

Love to you

The reflection of the homes on the lake is so beautifully unbroken.

That sounds like a perfect break and treat for you both. I can't believe she's 15 - she seems so grown-up! Your photos are lovely.
Thanks for your good wishes, we are having a good week here!

A delightful lunchtime get-together :D)

I love the 'contemplation' photo especially.

Mmm, my mouth is watering at the sight of that sushi, even tho it's 7.09 a.m. here!
Lovely to have that flexibility to meet up with your daughter during the school day. At my daughter's school the students aren't allowed off site until their final year, which she's just going into in August.

Oh how lucky to have such a wonderful daughter and relationship with her. I adore her haircut. Thanks for the photos. Carla
