Similar Interests.

12 year old son with our exchange student from Japan. We are enjoying his visit very much.

The Cat Sleeps on...

a pillow covered in dogs. He does not seem to be upset.

A Note to the Tooth Fairy.

No, not vespers but here is 7 year old daughter writing a note to the tooth fairy... her tooth fell down the drain.

The kookaburra is an ink sketch by a dear friend from high school.

So Lovely.

I have said this many times before; pears are beautiful.

On an aside, they are a regular now on the table as they are low in salicylates. I also find them easier to eat than apples.

Cheeky but gorgeous.

Ruth's Bowl.

This crockery also features in my favourite movie; "Enchanted April".

Purple Knitting.

Yay, finally; this holiday I have managed to introduce 9 year old daughter to knitting. She is loving it. She is making a purple scarf and hopes to make another scarf for her 12 year old brother.

The Grand Tour of Sydney.

This photo is from Google Images. It is the French House Cafe in Waterloo.

Botany Bay for fish and chips. This was the lunch stop after visiting The French House in Waterloo for a coffee and almond croissant and Establishment 218 in Alexandria; a 'walk in' butcher at wholesale prices. This was part of a "Sydney Grand Tour" that my Dad took husband E and I on for my birthday. Mum babysat all four children for the day.

I now feel odd saying 'babysat' for our 12 year old son.. should rather be 'stayed with'.
