Bicycle Love

Martin went out several times yesterday to stare lovingly at his new old bicycle - and rightly so, it is extremely attractive.

I now have extreme bicycle envy and have been roaming ebay for something in red...that will go with a frock....

The wee ones start kinder, school, swimming lessons next week. Very excited - it will be a good year - for us all most certainly. Lots of Changes, First Things, Creative Ideas, and Great Plans already.

Wrong Clothes Monster in action. He turns 5 this Saturday and has recently swapped dresses for capes and underpants.

Isabella and Beau bee watching.

My 'little' brother turned 40 on Monday and I'm about to pick up my first pair of reading glasses. Have officially reached the Other Side of Forty.

Listening to Gillian Welch, Neil Young.

It happens all the time in heaven

It happens all the time in heaven,
And some day
It will begin to happen
Again on earth -
That men and women who are married,
And men and men who are
And women and women
Who give each other
Often will get down on their knees
And while so tenderly
Holding their lover's hand,
With tears in their eyes,
Will sincerely speak, saying,
"My dear,
How can I be more loving to you;
How can I be more

These were posted by my dear cousin Jen on Facebook this week. Ta Lovely x

Scarborough Beach in the good ol' days. Mum obviously had a thing for dressing her kids in knitwear too, though I wager this one may not have been of organic hand-dyed wool....

My sweet papa and of the backyards we the hair Muz. Mine looked exactly like that about 2 years later!

May your 2010 be spectacular
May your memories be fond
May your knitwear be natural....
