The Morning After

We hosted a 30th birthday dinner last night for Mr Duyvken's youngest sister. It was a very fun night. This morning I realised that the birthday girl left her socks behind.

Eucalyptus Grey

One of my favourite corners of the house and one of my favourite photos of my babies. This was taken on an overnight trip to Canberra a couple of summers ago. We had just finished eating some delicious blueberry pancakes and were walking back to the car. It was a really lovely trip.

Broken

Sunday, April 19, 2015

All the roman blinds we put in when we moved in here 7 years ago are breaking. The plastic clips at the back of the blinds have all degraded in the sun and grown brittle. I have been hunting for replacement pieces that are the right size to clip onto the crossbars of the blinds. They aren't easy to find. Or rather, those little pieces are easy to find but they are too large to hold the crossbars on the blinds we have. Who knew this could be so tricky?

7 Years Old Today

Saturday, April 18, 2015





Happiest of days to our sweet JW. She told me the other day that when she was born and was in the hospital with me she was very excited because she thought she was an only child. Then, when we got home and she realised she had 2 older sisters and an older brother she felt (and I quote) 'a little disappointed but it's turned out OK'. I hope that the rest of her life is also filled with unanticipated pleasures.

Last Times Time of Year

Friday, April 17, 2015

Yesterday was a spectacular day. It was hot and sunny with a knock-you-down storm just after dark. After some cool weather it was lovely to feel the heat of the sun again. We are enjoying the last few dips in the pool before the cold weather sets in permanently.
