a Lego man was on the roof...


My son, the budding author, has been writing and drawing in his sketch book. This novella about the Lego man was a favourite bedtime story for a while there...

Not entirely sure who these are, but I love the composition...

Our family (above)... and (below) our family in New York... watched by lots of people... in a sunshower.

His fascination with technology continues, with the making of his own iPad, on which he can play Angry Birds... whenever he wants...

handmade xmas...

My first attempt at a paper banner...

We had a garage sale on the weekend, and during the cleanup, we found lots of old books that couldn't be sold because of mould or other water damage...

Still, some good pages to be had, and I couldn't bring myself to throw away a book like "Astronomy for Surveyors"...

So under the knife it went...

I'm taking on the Handmade Challenge, and aiming to make all the gifts on my xmas list this year...

I think I like the circles best...
