Happy New Year

[Ian's last day of the year lunch]

What a fantastic year we've had :) much to be happy about. I'm just typing this quickly before we head out to an early evening party, we will be home before midnight I'm sure.

A few highlights

<> Mia! Our sweet baby girl was born early in 2014 in mid January
<> Buying the old bowling club in town
<> Ian smashing on with the renovation
<> My first dishwasher
<> Getting a robovac (iRobot Roomba)

Merry Walking Christmas

We have a walker! Mia took three steps on her own today at Christmas lunch. Three weeks before her birthday. It was this time last year that I was waiting in Perth for her imminent arrival. She didn't arrive until the closing hour of the 15th of Jan but that is another story. Her birth story, which I have actually been writing and will post here around her birthday.

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day with family or friends. Here's to a great last week for 2013!

2013 November Mosaic

November was spent firmly at home after all our time in Perth in October, but we had...

:: a lovely visit from Nanna Cherie from SA
:: a screwed finger
:: a fire next door
:: weather that was Hot Hot Hot then Not Not Not
:: a record breaking harvest around here :D
:: all the gyprock boards up!
:: our 5 year wedding anniversary celebrated with dinner at the roadhouse cafe. Not the most romantic setting but having dinner with just the two of us felt pretty special.

Not long till Christmas now, I hope you're more ready for it than I am.
