AJ has always had a thing for blue textas

Here he is at age 2.  This creative effort stretched past the canvas of his body and also covered the wall.  Definitely took a few days to wash off!  I love the wink in this photo.
Here is AJ at age 6 and a half (sound asleep).  He and Milla were so hyped up tonight, for no apparent reason!  They even surfed down their flight of stairs on an old bed mattress!  I was sure the night was going to end in tears.  I was quite surprised that both of them went to bed with no arguments.  They usually spend at least half an hour to settle... Not tonight.  They were quiet from the beginning - strange.
Their Dad, Sean, went up stairs to check on them at about 9.  On his descent, he remarked, questioning if they had gone to bed with 'blue' faces?  We grabbed the closest camera and headed upstairs!  We were literally rolling around on the floor.  We now understood why they were so quiet at bed time.  I wonder what it will be like getting ready for school tomorrow?
Of course, Milla didn't miss out!

Is coffee really a drug

I have just spent five days without my favourite drink... Almost killed me (slight exaggeration).  I really do love the brown stuff.  I am now trying to have less and really enjoy them.  

One of my fixes for today was reading this article about mistaking coffee whitener for cocaine!!  Made me laugh.

A fave over at Flickr

Visit Ultraman Daddy... Japanese character.  Awesome photos.  I love it.

My famous Mum...

'Big Dry' turns farms into deserts was featured today over at the BBC.  Look for Mum, she's the one from Benalla.  Here is the part specifically about her...

The BBC had been chasing Mum for a while as they were writing this article about the drought in Australia.  They found her via Flickr (mum49).  I was 'found' via Flickr a few years ago.  What a wonderful place to showcase and share our photos.

Spring has sprung

Or spring is in the air...
You really can feel it today (nice, as it is the 1st of September).  There is that wonderful sunny feeling to the day.  Yesterday was even almost warm (not today though).  The days are also getting longer.  Woohoo, roll on summer!

Also, 18 days until we set off for Japan.  

Happy days!
