And so it begins…

boys.jpgMr L is off at his first disco. Here he is, with an obscene amount of gel in his hair and a smile I could only get by using the word ‘fart’ in a sentence. He’s ready, but we’re not. He gave us a demonstration of his dancing “skills” and I think he won’t be beating off the ladies for a while yet.

And Mr A – still not a tooth in sight. Last night there was much screaming and carrying on, which is very distressing to hear in a child who doesn’t usually cry much (unless it’s food related). He had a full tummy, clean nappy and panadol, and still not happy. And still no teeth, despite the red cheeks and boiling hot gums. Tonight there was a bit of a fuss, but seeing as he had practically no sleep today, he was pretty tired.

Mr G has come home with prospective dates for a weekend away for us next year. I am so insanely excited about this, because it will just be the two of us and we’re going to Tasmania, which is just about our most favourite place on earth. I can’t wait. It’s like coming home. I would absolutely love to stay in Battery Point, so I’m doing a little on-line searching to see what I can find. Somewhere colonial would be nice. When we last went over, three years ago, the best places we stayed at were the old ones. We stayed at a farm house built in 1838 – so much of the family’s history was left in that house and entrusted to the guests. It was such a privilege to stay there. We also stayed in another house that was more modern (1900’s) but was just like staying at grandma’s house. Such a lovely atmosphere, sitting at the big kitchen table. I love Tasmania.

Just doing the previews for some more brushes. I love these ones. I’m so happy with the way they’ve turned out. Stay tuned…

Catch ya…

    In Richmond we stayed in a lovely historical/colonial place. Was one of the most GORGEOUS PLACES. The other one that was historical was ohh … yes, at Hamilton!

    “Three Historic Cottages
    The three cottages, Emma’s, Victoria’s and George’s, also offer interesting historic accommodation. Like the Old Schoolhouse they were all built of local sandstone by convicts. Their current owner’s passion for antiques has meant that they are probably better furnished now than they were when the first residents moved in.”

    I couldn’t and am not sure if they have a website, but that’s the one in Hamilton.

    The other one in Richmond, is this..
    (Though, this was for the 3 of us :P)

    The owner has another one, Hollyhock. 🙂
