So the weather is glorious, the food, well what can I say about French home cooking? Fresh from Papi's gardens, cooked with some mysterious flare or ingredients that I'm sure I just couldn't replicate. And the bisous and hugs have been brewing for 5 months for this little Australian grandchild and are now flowing with abundance!

I am sitting in front of a computer that is from the 1980s and takes the morning to load and the sun is beckoning and the kitchen smells are calling to me and mu bubba is playing with his toes in the garden and so I dont think I'll be spending much time here.
Just wanted to pop in with a little hello from the South of France, a little pic of our already well travelled bubba (we stopped in Bali on the way for 4 days for a friend's ridiculously luxurious 40th birthday thankyou very much) and the information that I will pop in every now and then if it's raining. maybe.

Sending much sun, smelly cheese, and wine collected in jerry cans from the local producer to wherever you are...


Look at you sitting up in your very own chair at the big people's table!!


Holy crap it's cold here. I normally don't mind a bit of chilliness but I'm really struggling at the moment... it's positively icy.
Just as well I'm heading to summer in little over a week!! Yes, we're packing our bags and lugging Leo to the sunny shores of France to hang out with the hubby's family for 6 weeks. Bliss...

I'm reminding myself of our last trip there... full of sun, beautiful food, fresh produce, good wine and did I mention sun? Just got to get through one more week of winter (and a rather long plane trip).


Baby's first rally

We joined the throngs in Melbourne yesterday, adding our voices to support action on climate change.

We stole someone's sign for a photo opportunity!
(apologies again with the phone photo - forgot my camera)


winter light

It's winter in Melbourne now but the last few days have been glorious.
Loving the light that comes into our apartment in the late afternoon...


oh my goodness, how my heart just about bursts over this little man...
