52 catch-up

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”   Juju: Free spirited. My little day dreamer. Mowgli: Mr Fix-it. My sensitive, sweet boy. Coco: Adventurous and oh so naughty.   I’m posting this because I’ve given up catching-up on weeks 19 to 25 of The 52 Project. It was beginning to…

2/52: Cranky

“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013.”  Juju: She loves walking barefoot, just like her mum. Mowgli: Eight teeth are coming through at once. Molers and canines. My poor baby. Coco: No matter how many times I tell him and his brother not to play with the door, I find…

This time tomorrow, Wallabee will be delivered to the port in L.A, ready to be shipped to her new home in Australia. It’s been a crazy two weeks of renovating , with five men on the job to finish her by our deadline. I can’t wait to see and post the final pictures.

I’m enjoying my friend’s reactions when I tell them we’re planning to live in a vintage Airstream and travel around Australia with our three little munchkins.
