A sneaky Sydney trip

Oh wow. I really don’t know how almost two months have passed since my last blog post! It’s not as though nothing has been happening! We are certainly heading towards the tail end of the year, which for us means two birthdays, school and Scouts break-ups, Christmas, New Years, and all the things in between,…

Snow Trip 2022! (Post 1 of 2)

Wow. Just wow. This trip was three months in the thinking/planning/making, and we were rewarded with an incredible experience that the kids will be talking about for years to come, I’m sure.

Stuff’s been happening

Melbourne Magic

My heart is overflowing with love and gratitude and all the good things a trip to Melbourne brings. We arrived home last night to a very excited Juilus and a very happy, albeit exhausted Gran & Grumpy. A HUGE shout-out to Mum and Dad for having Jules for four nights while we were away and…

You should be 40

I really wanted to commemorate Frith’s 40th on Wednesday. If he were still here, the party would have been epic, probably lasting a full weekend. The thing is, I have no idea where we would have even been living – which state, which city or country town? So it’s hard to imagine what our lives…
