Three Year Old James

Our little man turned three on Wednesday and it has brought a range of mixed emotions for me.  I’m so happy that he is a healthy and happy boy after his wobbly start in life.  He was born only weighing 2.030 kg’s and was a tiny little dot.  Luckily he loves his food and has prospered in those three years.

However, I feel a little emotional that our ‘baby’ is growing up so fast.  He will be finishing school and sneaking out with his buddies in no time.  The cliché really does ring true – you have to savour each and very moment! x

Ps: In case you are wondering the cake is supposed to be a motor cruiser boat.  It is definitely open to interpretation however!

50 ♥


Last weekend, my sister Cath and I flew to Melbourne to celebrate our older sister’s 50th birthday in Castlemaine.  We were literally only there for 24 hours, but despite the quick trip, it was wonderful to celebrate Rob’s special day.

Rob has always lived a very healthy life and as a result she is beaming with vitality and youth, despite her half century milestone!

Surrounded by all her special friends in a cosy bar in Castlemaine, we celebrated into the wee hours.  The next morning, Rob’s husband Paul cooked up a storm and we enjoyed opening presents together and drinking cups of tea before dragging ourselves back to Tullamarine.

Whilst I was away, Nick took Poppy and James to Ben Lomond for a few snowy adventures.  James loved ‘sloping’ down the hill on a sled with Poppy, in his big baggy pants.  Bless.  Xx

Turning Four

The Birthday Girl

Our little Poppy turned four today!

It has felt like this day has been coming for a long time with Poppy continually asking the question over the past year:

How many more minutes until I’m four Mummy?

We have been in Orford for the weekend and had one very excited girl this morning opening her presents to find a pink fluro fishing rod with LED flashing lights, which Nick has named ‘The Pink Ling’.

On return to Hobart, we went out on the boat this afternoon to test out the new gear and low and behold she caught her first fish!

What more could a four-year old want?  Well … as I tucked her into bed she asked:

Mummy, how many more minutes until I’m five?

Sigh ….
