Daddy's Work


So much fun for a small boy, the possibilities are endless...



Returning from feeding the cat...



Inspecting the four wheel motorbike...


Checking the tractor attachments are all performing appropriately...


Magic. 

...then it all went horribly wrong!


Another happy day at the skate park - the sun was shining, the birds were singing, the small boy was hooning around merrily! 


There isn't much in the world to make Jarvis smile as much as a trip to the skate park. He absolutely adores the expanse of concrete on which to ride his bike. Much as living in the countryside makes for some great adventures, riding bikes isn't really one of them. A gravel driveway & a vineyard aren't the ideal riding surfaces for a bike such as his. 



I nipped down the road to pick up some fish and chips for lunch, leaving Jarvis & his Daddy enjoying the morning...little did I know that when I got back...


OUCH!! Disaster!! Roly poly activities on a bike are not recommended! Chin scraped, nose scraped, bit of a bump on the forehead. Fortunately very short lived pain and suffering, by the time I got back with lunch he was zooming around again with a crazed grin on his face. After getting over the initial shock, I just can't stop laughing at that photo! He somehow chose the perfect facial expression to frame his wounds for full dramatic effect! 

Today he looks even more fab, with the scrapes starting to scab over. I think this means he's officially a proper boy ;)

Wardrobe Wednesday :)


Oh dear, it seems I've repeated a cardi and it's only been a few weeks! 

Trench coat - best ever op shop discovery, it cost me about ten bucks & is a gorgeous NZ made, silk liked coat from days gone by. Fabulous!
Skirt - nice stretchy preggo job ;) 
Cardi - ezibuy
Boots - trade me :)
Bag - my creation from last week! Slightly wonky lining, but all round I'm pretty happy with it!
Sunglasses - Karen Walker. 

Pop over to Green Valley to see more!

Skate Park...


What a way to spend a morning! 


Visiting the local skate park at 8am is a fabulous idea; the 'serious' skating types haven't managed to drag themselves out of bed yet, so a small boy & his bike have free run of the whole place without having to worry about being run over, or getting in the road of someone going a million miles an hour on a skateboard.





He zoomed around for an hour or so, giggling maniacally as he took corners and negotiated ramps. When we finally had to go (when the big boys started to arrive...), we had one very unimpressed little pirate bike rider on our hands. We have a very strange two year old on our hands in that he never has tantrums, so it was quite a disturbing performance!

When he got up this morning, his adventures at the skate park were first on his list of stories to tell us. It seriously made his day (perhaps his week!). Fantastic!
