Sunshine and Smiles by Lisa Weightman
Guest blog by Lisa Weightman
I’ve always felt extremely proud to be Australian. I’ve always felt extremely proud of the State in which we live, the opportunities which we’ve been fortunate to experience and most of all I’ve always felt safe where I live. After a lengthy lockdown in Victoria I am so extremely proud of our community and how we’ve supported each other through this challenging time. We’ve missed celebrating almost every special day with our families, we’ve replanned our biggest goals and now there’s a light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s sunshine and smiles just in time for Pete’s birthday, just in time to get together as a close-knit family and celebrate every birthday of 2020. It’s only a matter of hours until we can gather as a complete family unit and we cannot wait. Our Pete has already started doing somersaults knowing he can play daily with his grandparents. He has a school holiday planned with his grandparents, his aunty and his cousin every day of summer! We can all be together again – something we’ve never taken for granted and something to smile about.
We’ve hit the reset button on our Olympic preparation. A rest button isn’t a bad thing, right? There are so many times in life where you’d love the opportunity for a do-over. So perhaps a 2020 do-over isn’t so bad. Now I know how Sleeping Beauty felt when she woke up from her deep sleep. It feels a little like that right now. We were on a path, literally running toward our big goals, it all went black and now we’re back at the start line running again! It’s a strange but exciting feeling, a feeling that makes you feel a little sparkly, like a ray of sunshine – no bleakness, no darkness.
The only darkness I am happy to see this year is next week’s Black Friday sale. An opportunity to get ready for Christmas. For those wanting to get bouncing check out the Springfree Trampoline Black Friday sale from Thursday 26/11 to Monday 30/11. You can purchase a Springfree Trampoline, with FREE delivery and your choice of FREE installation or a Flexrhoop. It’s a rare day for the trampoline to be without a happy child. No springs, no hard edges, a hidden frame that is impossible to fall on and a flexible enclosure. The world's safest trampoline.
Enjoy the sunshine Victorians, smile often, laugh together and don’t forget – jumping isn't just for kids!
Merry Christmas to all.
Love Lisa x
