What's better than pizza and beer in the summertime?

Answer: nothing! This was the little fella's introduction to the joys of pizza - get ready for the love of a lifetime little man. Thanks to Pats for these great pix. Thanks also to Elvira for these wonderful new trousers - although with this heat in London Amory has been getting around in singlets and shorts (and sometimes just the singlet!) much of the time. Still they will be perfect for home and the July cold in Melbourne.

Cure for Jetlag!

Summer is naturally awesome wherever and whenever one is fortunate enough to experience it but summertime in London really is something else. For a city preternaturally cold and grey most of the time, the sun and the blue skies and the green fields of its bounteous parks really stir the spirits. Oh yes, and chasing a little boy and a football around a park in the midst of a city in the grip of world cup fever really is the best cure for jet-lag of all time! Amory has been blessedly well behaved these last couple of days considering the inhuman torture we put him through - 30 hours travelling time between beds is cruel on anyone but little people especially dislike it. Fortunately, Amory slept on his mum for most of the flight from Malaysia to London and then slept soundly the first night here in London so we really can't complain. Andrea and I are mixing work with shopping and long walks. Really is lovely over here right now with a heat wave and the world cup to keep us happy - too good!
