Austral Bricks - old Colonial - Mahogany

Choosing external colours

I thought external colours would be a relatively easy job…after all we wanted ‘as is’ from the display centre home. Little did we know how cheeky those Rawson lot are, making people fall in love with the display only to find out everything is extra. The brick selection was a perfect example..had we gone with the same […] Read more…

Horrible two weeks

Sickness has infiltrated our house and everyone has been sick but none as much as Nicola who trumped us all by contracting Pneumonia. I’ve never seen her so sick and flat.

The past 12 months have […] 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…
