22.5.6. A comforting moment

Tara shoved her hair out of her face as she unlocked the front door and nudged it open with her hip. She collected an armload of bags from the stoop and grunted softly as she carried them into the foyer of their home. She had spent the day shopping with Evie, the pair of them ending up in Babies-R-Us and having a field day spending loads of money. Everything from new cloth nappies to teething rings to a little baby drum kit was bought. It probably would have been cheaper buying shares in the company. Buying things for their wee boy, however, was never something Tara and Lachlan balked at. They only had one bite at the baby apple, and they wanted to enjoy every minute.

The only thing was, their wee Riley Patrick was growing up so quickly...Collapse )

Sitting watching my husband, my cousin and Josh rock out 'Black Betty', Spiderbait style, and instead of sobbing at the noise, my baby boy is kicking his feet, giggling and squealing? I think I've spawned a rock babe, and I'm loving every minute of it.

I love it when he gets broody.

At Luke's new bar, no doubt plotting something for the new band...Collapse )

I would say it's hard being married to a rocker, but it really really isn't. I do wonder if my son will get the same broody face when he grows up, though.

I meant to post this sooner, but being away on the weekend, I forgot!

May 16th marked Tara's two year anniversary since her conception and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to all those who have helped her grow to the well-rounded character she is today. She was conceived in a now closed House, M.D. RPG, but moved on to muse land when she still wanted a voice when the game faded to black. Since being in muse land, her world has grown, and I am so proud to have her connected to some wonderful, amazing muses written by even more amazing muns. Muse land gave her the current universe she exists in, princeton2nyc where I love each and every member of her extended family.

She has been a big part of my life since I created her, and she also forcefully played cupid for me and our Connor. Connor is the mun for drcampbell and we met through the original RPG when he joined a few months after I did. Like our pups, we hit it off from day one and on Christmas Day last year, we got engaged to be married. I used to be a skeptic about romance originating online, but now I'm a huge advocate, for obvious reasons ;) Lachlan and Tara still play a huge part in our fun times and we both hope they are around for a lot longer yet.

To our fellow muns in princeton2nyc, I love you all. You're wonderful and gifted writers, never failing to keep me hooked on your fantastic plots and pups. It's been nothing but an honour to continuously write with you. And to my darling C, you rock my world, baby. I know things have been tough for you over the last few months and you're still having a bad time of it, but you always get through it with a laugh and cheeky smile on your face, and I love you.

I think that's all. Anything more, and I'll start to cry!

Hug and kisses,

Jamie x

Riley, sweetie, I need your BFF intervention skills. It's nearly time to go back to Princeton, and Lachie's getting depressed. He isn't really forthcoming about much. Can you take him for a drink, even just to give him a change of scenery? RJ's cranky today and it's not very conducive to me getting my better half to open up. I'm exhausted just trying to get the fruit of his loins to stop crying.

Oh, and if he talks about getting a swear word tattooed on his butt cheek, please try and avert the course of the conversation.

Much love xx

19.1.4. “Peace - that was the other name for home.” - Kathleen Norris

Co-written with drcampbell


Tara waved her hand slowly in front of her husband's glazed eyes and laughed when he blinked and turned to look at her with a sleepy smile. They were sitting in a second-floor bar on Princes Street in Edinburgh, the floor to ceiling windows giving them a pristine view of the Castle looming above them. It wasn't overly late and not quite dark yet, but it was dusk enough to bathe the historical landmark in a soft blue hue. After the harrowing flight from Princeton to Edinburgh, Tara had fully expected them to make it to Lachlan's parents house and beeline for the bed after getting their son settled in his crib. As they touched down, she had been fantasising about a snuggle in a comfy bed with her naked husband, and that really seemed to be the plan after they had a cup of tea with her in-laws and Lachlan's Nana while they gushed and cooed over the baby. But through the second cup of a tea, Lachlan's leg had been bouncing restlessly, and he soon declared that he needed to 'feel home'. He was exhausted himself. Spending a seven hour flight puking your guts up would do that. But he wouldn't be able to rest until had the sense he was home. Being in his childhood home with his parents and grandma wasn't going to cut it, it seemed.

After convincing Tara that their baby son would be fine with his parents for a wee while, Lachlan took his Dad's car and drove them both into the city centre, all the way up to the Castle esplanade. He had sucked in a deep breath of the Scottish air and ran his hands along the centuries-old cobblestones...Collapse )
