Lucas is 8 Months Old Today

Well our tubby little bubby is 8 months old, and he’s only about a kilogram lighter than his sister who is two years his senior. Isabella likes to push Lucas around, knock him over, drag him around the floor by one arm, sit on him, pinch him and generally share the love with him. Yet he seems to love it! We try to discourage Isabella’s ‘love hurts’ approach yet we seem to be failing. If Lucas keeps growing at his enhanced rate I’m guessing the tables will be turned by the time Lucas is 18 months old, I’m thinking Isabella’s not going to like the ‘love hurts’ approach when she is the recipient.

Happy Australia Day & Gong Xi Fa Cai

Okay Aussies get out there and have a barbie today, from what I’ve read the Ozone hole is starting to seal-up and some scientist are worried about the bad effects this change might have for the environment, so I’m calling on all Aussies to spark-up the BBQ and rummage through the garage for old CFC propelled spray cans to help widen the Ozone hole again. (Please note, this suggestion might be ill-advised and strangely sound like something that would normally sprout forth for the mouths of politicians).

Also today we would like to wish those celebrating the Lunar / Chinese New Year a Gong Xi Fa Cai or Gong Hei Fat Choy (for Cantonese speakers). Enter the year of the moo moo, okay Year of the Ox, though year of the moo moo sounds more enjoyable.

Happy New Year

A warm welcome to 2009 to you all, well it is in Singapore were the year round temperature stays around 30 degrees Celsius. We had a nice visit with family and friends in Australia over the Christmas period but it is nice to be back in our own abode, as living out of suitcases isn’t much fun especially with young kids.
