Fun day with the Walpole’s

I keep forgetting to take the SLR out. The last 3 months have sorta whizzed by and I feel like I’m always chasing my tail. I keep saying to myself – “You’ll regret it if you don’t take the photos while the kids are still babies”…and it pains me. I suppose I’m capturing photographs so […] Read more…

Easter Saturday – Trip to Sydney Tower Eye

Today we escaped the house after being trapped for 24hrs (due to bad weather). It was a brave move – we didn’t know if the rest of Sydney had the same idea. Needless to say, Westfield Pitt Street was buzzing with activity, however still somewhat manageable with the stroller. A quick refuel in the food […] Read more…

Letter to Nicola – 14 months old

My dear little sweet pea; Nicola, The months continue to pass quickly and I don’t know where they have gone. I really don’t. I blinked and now you’re 14 months old. I’m not going to talk about wanting a pause button, or rewinding to this time last year when you were tiny because that’s all […] Read more…

Another year older..

I had a wonderful day on Wednesday… The kids woke me up then Luca raced down the hall to get David to open the linen press because ‘that’s where my present is hiding’. They made a grand entrance into the bedroom with my gifts and I’m glad I captured it all on film – my family […] Read more…

Luca’s First Day

Well its official – Luca has started school. It was one of those surreal moments were we walked through the school gate and left the baby years behind and looked straight into the future of text books, homework and exams. I’m not sure how I feel about it all – I miss the baby years […] Read more…

So many new experiences…Swimming

Luca had been to swimming lessons when he was a baby, I started him at 6 months but because he always got colds and sniffles I stopped going thinking it was the pool that was making him sick. It wasn’t until he was 3 that I started up again at a different swimming centre in […] Read more…

Nicola’s First Birthday

What a day….what a glorious, wonderful, beautiful day. All week we had been looking at the weather and after many prayers we received the most glorious gift – a bright sunny day with a perfect breeze. We started setting up the backyard very early and asked nonna (Dave’s mum) to take Nicola and Luca whilst […] Read more…

Lots to be grateful for…

I’m getting very sentimental as we approach Nicola’s first birthday. She’s growing up so quickly, infact, our whole family is – physically and emotionally. As each day passes, each of us are getting stronger, more independent whilst keeping close to our bond. Luca starts school soon and Nicola has already started daycare. Life moves on. […] Read more…

15 resolutions – what’s yours?

January is always a tough month – we’re back at work, starting a new year from scratch and probably on a diet or a detox. For many of us, we start the new year with high hopes of changing an aspect of our lives – giving up something that is naughty is always something high […] Read more…
