I still miss my Fridge Chronicles and often wonder when I'm going to get around to bringing them back, but I'm well into these little Instajournals each month.
Dancing on the beach one moment...
... dancing in the rain the next. That was January in Sydney for you. What am I gonna do when Picnik closes? Does anyone know of a similar type of site that let's you collage your pictures?
But back to January...
Always a momentous occasion when I grow an actual fruit. The strawbs are flourishing in the rain and then rotting on the bush as the Tsunamis think they are too sour. I can't win.
Random nautical people - I just love this shot. See below.
We went to a pirate / mermaid themed one year old's birthday party on a harbour cruise. It looks fabulous up there, but it was all a bit nauseating in reality (I am not good with boats).
Plus, the actual party looked like this...
Note to self: cruises are not a good idea for kids' birthdays. But I knew that already. The green sea-monster woman up there is my darling sister-in-law (the Best Aunty in the Whole World), Lucia. She's my right-hand-woman for all things party and she was a godsend for our friend at this one too.
Yes, I still have pimples at 40. Oh, and ignore the boat hair, won't you!
... and I thought 'I could do this life'.
I could definitely do this life.
A night out for pizza. We'd never been to GPK before, but it was really lots of fun. The pizza was pretty awful, but I'd recommend the decidedly un-pizzaish Teryaki Chicken.
We've so enjoyed our watermelon smiles this Summer.
Or any kind of smiles, really. These two are so like my little sister and I that it just makes me want to go back in time so we can play together.
A little mushroom light I bought at Lark. Awful photo, lovely mushroom light.
And then it was back to work...
... and back to school.
And that's a January wrap.
Do you still get pimples?
How long have you had them?
I have had them for 29 years.
