the visitors

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Over the last several months we’ve had many visitors – Justine and Zhen Xing came and lived with us for 3 months, and due to my blogging slackness only appear here well after they’ve gone to live up North with the ti-tree lakes and the beaches (bit of a change from being directly beneath the flight path and next to a freight rail line). Hi guys!!



We’ve had Bindi do a quick drop in before she took off on her bike to Central America again – she should almost be in Costa Rica by now – hi Bindi!


And Narni and Poppy came down for a week for Rocket’s birthday (you might notice I have no pics of the actual party, can all the camera-wielding friends who came along supply me with some photographic evidence that said event did actually occur?)


Sally was next up


and then Narni and Poppy were back for a flying visit for New Year – seen here waiting for the fireworks at Coogee (so much more civilized than fighting our way through the hordes at Circular Quay – thanks to Karen for the brilliant plan)


and here, for some obscure reason which I won’t go into, we are exploiting the lovely light in the beergarden and trying to look like we’ve all had a bit to drink on New Year’s Day (note that despite strict orders to the contrary mum couldn’t help downing half hers before the photoshoot was over 😉


Here’s to more regular posting in 2009!


Saturday, November 22nd, 2008

It’s 3 in the morning and I can’t sleep. As Bea generally wakes at 3.30am, then usually again between 5 and 6 (after which she’s ‘up’) this does not bode well. At least the blog finally gets some new pics 🙂





(I’ve prepped more but I’ll post them progressively (really!!! I will!), and now I’ll try to close my eyes for a bit and see if I can possibly lose consciousness for a bit while Bea miraculously sleeps through till oooh, shall we say, 8?)
