Happy New Year!!

Melbourne is experiencing another of its seasonal heat waves to usher in the new year - four consecutive days in the mid 30s with 40 degrees predicted for tomorrow. Perfect weather for digging the blow up pool out of the shed now that water restrictions have been eased sufficiently to enable us to deposit more than a thimble full of water in the thing! As you can see, the good times are rolling!

Christmas in Carlton

We are enjoying our own "staycation" this year...home has never been so wonderful to be honest although we all miss our family and friends in QLD. Still, hard to refuse christmas cheer with an endlessly mirthful three year old!

At the Zoo...

Amory and I have really rediscovered the zoo of late. With Andrea busy these last couple of weeks with work and uni, Amory and I have had some time for some good old fashioned boys own adventures. Very fun as you can see!

For our Lovelies the Twins!!

Another lovely day at the zoo witht he twins Sadie and Scout and then back to their place for ice-cream in the sunshine. Perfect day really, topped off by the late fashion parade which as you can see Amory enthusiastically embraced!

Clancy's Birthday

Clancy enjoyed his 3rd birthday in glorious Melbourne summer sunshine on Saturday - Mum and Dad arranged for the Reptile Zoo to come along with snakes and even a bloody crocodile to scare the bejesus out of everyone but of course the kids loved it! Amory wasn't so sure about the snake but he did hold it for a minute the second time it came around! After that he got his confidence up and even asked if he could hold the crocodile later - not on my watch fella!!

Weekend Wrap Up

So in the hope of warmer days ahead (Melbourne day one of summer...18 degrees and windy booooo!!!) I have loaded a couple of weekend photos from similarly unseasonal days past. We are certainly due some summer warmth down here!

The Next Dr Duff...

You know it makes sense...happy days!
