Going to the beach!

Lolly made it to 21 months old before going to the beach, despite living in Brisbane. On the Monday after xmas, we went to Scarborough with my parents and sister. It was such a lovely day!

Here is Lolly on the beach for the first time, hiding in my skirt.


Dadda made some reassuring booby sand castles.


I guess the beach is okay after all!


Watching Auntie Julz, Pop and Dadda play footy and looking cool.


Watching the kite surfers from the headland.


The playground!!




After fish and chips for dinner, we went wave jumping at twilight. Here is DinnerDad and Lolly.


With Nanna.


Lolly cried most of the way home, but it was worth it :)

A New Year Greeting.

On this day tradition allots
To taking stock of our lives
My greetings to all of you, Yeasts,
Bacteria, Viruses
Aerobics and Anaerobics:
A very happy New Year
To all for whom my ectoderm
Is as Middle Earth to me

For creatures your size I offer
A free choice of habitat
So settle yourselves in the zone
That suits you best, in the pools
Of my pores or the tropical
Forests of arm-pit and crotch,
In the deserts of my forearms,
Or the cool woods of my scalp.
Build colonies: I will supply
Adequate warmth and moisture,
The sebum and lipids you need,
On condition you never
Do me annoy with your presence,
But behave as good guests should
Not rioting into acne, athlete's foot or a boil.
