30/9/12: a day out with the family for lunch and shopping, topped off by catching up with friends – a very good day! 29/9/12: I sat with Matthew for ages this afternoon. We chatted and played with his meccano. We made this robot, putting our ideas together to do good teamwork! Yeah! 28/9/12: driving home […]
In the earlier years of our relationship, I would frequently visit Monte’s house. I’ve always been a bit besotted with Montague. My grandmothers always told me that fellas like a bit of good cooking, so I collected quite a few recipes before I got hitched to the love of my life. Yesterday I rummaged through […]

The entire unwrapping ceremony was so delightful, as she negotiated a few layers of wrapping paper […]

16/9/12: playground with grandma and poppa 15/9/12: A good day actually. A 7k jog with Monte in the morning, a lunch outside and an afternoon of gardening and play outdoors. Then family movie/pizza nigh to top it off. This is a photo of Monte and Georgie in the garden. 14/9/12: snuggles with my little man […]
