I started to ride my bike again (and got a flat tyre that I still need to repair, poop!) - and rode every day to Summer school. We bought a baby trailer and have been taking Theo for lots of rides - he likes to watch the scenery. I have so missed riding. I feel more me when I ride a bike.
We moved into our lovely new house (and we're still unpacking) and we're so happy. It's dreamy.
I found this very cute, very tiny letter while I was packing up to move house. I know it came out of a letter I received, if it was from you, thank you!
I unearthed some old photos while I was packing and this one brought back some memories from when I was school president (and blonde! And really short?).
I also found this old photo from when I was about Theo's age with my Mum. I think Theo and I look so alike.
I got Theo's room almost totally unpacked and arranged. I'll take some proper photos once I've hung up all the pictures.
Despite the fact that we already have a couch and a sofa bed, I found this amazing purple couch and two armchairs and had to have them. I feel like it's like they're out of a cartoon.
This little boy had a month full of developments. He's now crawling, can pull himself up from crawling to sitting and can pull himself up to standing in his cot and eats foods by himself. He tried kiwi fruit today and dried apples and dried bananas are BIG favourites.
I made a zine!
Our next door neighbours left this enormous zucchini on our doorstep and I thought I'd put it next to Theo for size.
The cats have really enjoyed our new house so far. We are able to let them all out and they don't wander very far and seem to really enjoy lazing around the garden. Sadly, they are also enjoying catching birds (non-natives, but still sad) - in this photo they are congregating around a tiny dead bird they'd caught - I thought they were just hanging out!
Such a cheerful boy.
...and possibly possessed?
Theo had his first go on a swing and loved it! It's a shame the same can't be said for the beach.
I made my own pizza dough for the first time and it was very edible. Our new kitchen is a lot smaller than our old one, but has lovely stainless steel appliances and good storage and I'm really enjoying cooking in it - my favourite things to cook at the moment are spiced pumpkin cake and pesto polenta with roast vegetables.
Reading | Call The Midwife but I've been craving some good fiction lately.
Watching | Orphan Black is our latest obsession. It's a Canadian show about a girl who sees a girl who looks exactly like her jump in front of a train. I also got really obsessed with a 3-part German miniseries called Generation War - it's not often that you see a WWII drama from the German perspective. I also watched A LOT of tennis - I love watching the Australian Open each year, it feels like it wouldn't be Summer without it. We also started watching a British show called In The Flesh about zombies (usually not my cup of tea) that get rehabilitated and try to assimilate back into society.
Making | Lots of woodcut prints and a zine.
Consuming | Pumpkin cakes, polenta with roast veggies, salads and icy poles.
Listening to | The Hottest 100 on Australia Day (pretty boring), Jurassic 5 & The National.
Looking forward to | My mum visiting tomorrow for a week! I'm hoping we'll be able to take her to Lilydale Falls and go on some pretty walks at Cradle Mountain.
In February | I go back to university to finish my degree!
