Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da

Either my daughter has just mastered the Russian language or I do believe she has started muttering her first words... In fact if you look closely and listen keenly she is actually saying Dad Dad Dad You're the best dad in the whole world Dad. It's just happened to strangely coincide with the day I was flicking through my mothers birth book which was written by my Grandmother in 1929. And like some kind of weird time capsule it has transported me back in time linking me with two generations past. According to grandmother Eileen, Mother Sylvia muttered her first da da da's at aged 9 months... I'vy's come in at 7 and a half months ( yet another example of the genius child we're raising)
It's such a little treasure with all sorts of gems... like my mother Sylvia being a "bonny baby" and when the bonny baby took her first steps my grandparents planted trees on their farm in Mudgee to commemorate the event. The amazing thing about the book is it just reminds you that as time goes by nothing really changes. Sure we think the world is so modern, but really we're just doing exactly the same thing as other humans have been for the past 10,000 years.

Hot town summer in the Sydney

2007 is over and we passed it in style. In fact all three of us were in bed by 10.30. Kate and I opened a nice bottle of sparkling merlot, smoked a joint, lay in hammocks and fried up a bit of haloumi on the BBQ. There were no queues for beer, no vomit laden toilets, no tossers shouting aussie aussie , no 2 hour waits for taxis, no 100 dollar tickets to enter a crap venue, and no pressure to have the best night you've ever had. Perfect way to kick off summer in 2008 in Sydney
