I miss youse

It feels weird not blogging. I know it's weird to feel weird for not blogging. And I'm so busy I don't know what to do. You know that feeling? I just keep making lists and ticking off the really small things - "put bins out" - tick. By the time the babies are abed and dinner is over, I only have an hour and a half each evening - from 8.30 pm til 10 - to work on changing Queensland.

I'll be over at the campaign blog for a few more weeks yet. They tell me it should be presented to Parliament then go to the vote by the end of November.

I've made this - it's part of the campaign, but I thought you might like it.

Where did I come from 2 on Vimeo.

Thanks - I actually made it with the intention of sending it to the MPs, but now I'm worried it's too sickly sweet. You know, not enough Hard Facts. So I'm thinking about what to do with it at the moment.

Oh, I love your video. If nothing else, to show the kids when they're old enough to ask the questions about their origin.

I could see how you would think it was a bit sweet to give to the MP's, but I think it's also very human, and I know many legislators minds are changed by the human story, and how normal we rainbow families are.

Oh, the kids love it already! I can see I'm going to get sick of it. Then tonight as they were going to sleep they demanded I recite the words.

I like the idea that their birth story will be "old news" to them by the time they are old enough to understand it.

That made me cry. They are so beautiful.

The babies look lovely too....

I think you should send it, but then, I'm absolutely predisposed to back your case anyway. I though the section about all the different shapes and sizes of families was very effective, but it was seeing those gorgeous babies that moved my heart.

PS. I've been missing you too, 'though I figured you were very busy.

that is so beautiful, I got all teary.

I still think you should send it in; the more """normal""" your family seems to a conservative, the better your chances are. As in, showing them how sickly and sweet you are, rather than hard facts, which may seem a bit militant, perhaps?

Now this is weird. Your catptc.ha says "unqual" Bit like "unequal" right? Spooky... :)
