Rocket Man

Luca drew this rocket this week sometime, I thought it was frame worthy - he doesn't usually sit still long enough to finish any drawings. It looks like this "Big School" thing is starting to fix his short attention span. YAY!

Overdue Painting

This is long overdue and still unfinished. My new deadline - Friday fortnight (12/3)! Should be plenty of time even though Remi is demanding most of my attention. He's allowed to, he's only 1.

"It's for you Mummy"

12 years is a long time.
12 years ago we were living in New York.
12 years ago today we eloped to San Francisco and got married by a Judge in the City Clerks Office - and it was pouring rain! Afterwards we ate Mexican food for lunch in Berkeley.

Most of the day today went by without a fuss. I told Luca it was Mummy and Daddy's Wedding Anniversary, so after dinner he sat down and drew this for me. "It's for you Mummy. It's just in case Daddy forgets to bring you home some flowers" he said. So precious! (Daddy did forget!) It was still a really lovely day though.

Some say that 13 is an unlucky number, I think it's a wonderful number to start the teenage years! It turned out to be a really lovely day for my nephew Ethan's 13th Birthday yesterday, most of the family was there, the sun was out, the flies were everywhere, and my lovely Sister put on a delicious lunch to celebrate. We weren't in any rush to leave, that's for sure, lucky it was Saturday and the kids had today to recover. We hope you had a lovely day Ethan - and hopefully you got your new motorbike started today.
