Dear Olive,
The contents of my jacket pocket, emptied at the park by some little hands. Pens, a peg, a business card, a half eaten cracker, a car, a couple of safety pins and my phone. Not quite as embarrassing as the time I pulled out my keys at the pub in front of a group of people, only to watch in horror as a long tangle of variously flavoured tea bags came out attached with it. But far more revealing of my chaotic life right now, split between work and being at home you. The juggle is intense. I'm kind of loving it.

Looks like the perfect balance to me .... maybe one of those tea bags needs to go back in to wash the cracker down though!!

Interesting little essentials you have there...

When I was styling I used to come home with pins, bulldog clips and mangled blobs of double sided tape hanging off my outfit (at least yours are contained in your pocket). I'd often forget I was seriously embellished and walk around in public. Luckily, I lived in Enmore where you could walk down the street dressed as a pineapple and nobody would batan eyelash.
...now there's a comment. Sorry for the novel.

P.S - you've put me at ease with your experience of sleep and lalie's age. Thank you xx

It is a work of art. It instantly reminds of the days when mine were young (only our phones did NOT fit in our pockets then!) Love your blog and the concept behind it, just lovely.

Kellie--what a wonderful blog you have going, here! I love the letters to Olive. As I have a fear of forgetting and not documenting enough--this is a perfect gift for your daughter--so neat. I love all the stuff in your pockets.

I browsed through your posts--and wow, they are cheerful and uplifting. Thanks for sharing your letters to your little girl with us!!!

Cheers!
