Here's Frankie in his tradie gear in front of "blacky", his car, which was once my car. He starts very early and I get up with him, before he heads off in the dark, to help prepare his lunch and have a coffee together. I was thinking recently how my life has gone full circle with Frankie. I used to get up with him before dark when he was a little fellow, although back then it was just me that found the early start hard. Don't tell him but I actually really enjoy it. I feel very aware that it won't be long before these times too will be a memory. Don't you wish sometimes that you could do parts of your life all over again so you could have a chance to enjoy them once more ?

Frankie recently started his electrical apprenticeship. I am very excited with the prospect of having an electrician in the family. Although I do try to block out the fact that he is mucking around with electricity all day. Even though he is grown, it still seems instinctual as a mother to worry about such things.
