Hmmm, it’s been a while.
There’s been action behind the scenes though. While I’ve been away:
My blog turned two! And I missed it! Again! Sheesh;
Seemingly everybody in the blogosphere announced their pregnancy, had a baby, or is expecting a baby in the next few nanoseconds;
I missed the Melbourne blogmeet due to a last-minute change in schedule for Son #1’s violin soiree;
A couple of my laundry photos appeared here;;
I spotted a little someone wearing one of my tomato hats;
I held my most successful ever market stall at the school’s Twilight Market yay me;
The following weekend Son #1 had a music exam and I was more nervous then he (but determinedly did not show it, apart from the white knuckle thing);
The winter solstice celebrations have been and gone;
We have had most of the new kitchen installed (tiles and two powerpoints [on the tiles] still to go). Photos next time;
There have been many late nights and a couple of essays submitted, resulting in the lounge room looking like this on several mornings;
More knitting of wee baby socks has taken place.
That’s the new kitchen bench that the sock is sitting on, by the way.
Here’s the other benchtop, over on the island bench (this was the one that was meant to be a beautiful timber island bench but due to financial considerations ended up being a beautiful laminate island bench. Sigh). Full kitchen renovation shots tomorrow for those who are interested.
Please excuse my breakfast. It’s there for, um, scale? Or maybe to just show off my first loaf of sourdough in the new oven (which doesn't need cranking up to the highest setting to actually cook foodstuffs all the way to the centre! Fancy!) and the last of Shula's plum jam. Hint.
And you? What have you been up to then?
Oh! In other exciting developments, it seems I’ve won the Spanish lottery, and a nice chap in Nigeria is offering me a million dollars to help store some of his money for a while. Gosh, it’s all go round here.
