I was so happy to wake up and know that we would be heading out to see Deasy and Amaru again today, I really miss chats with Deasy and it’s been a long time between visits. I smiled as we travelled back through the streets of...

As today was spent infront of my computer all day or otherwise holding Samudra to try and calm him down from crying, I didn’t have any chance for mini adventures or photo taking outside of the house.  Being inside all day makes...

I had arranged with Treen to go to Car Free Day this morning, and for once Samudra decided not to wake up early, so by the time Treen arrived in the taxi with Claire, I had to wake Samudra and take him with us in his pajamas.  The...

Another early morning so again I put Samudra in his baby sling and off we headed for a morning walk.  I really love it when I actually make the effort to get out of bed and leave the house so early.  I wasn’t too sure where...

100 Days of Happiness – Day 70  Posted on 04/09/2014
This morning when I woke I heard what sounded like heavy rain so thought I would stay in bed as long as Samudra would allow before it was time for his nanny to arrive.  I gave him a bath and then opened the bedroom door as we were...

100 Days of Happiness – Day 69  Posted on 04/08/2014
It seems Samudra has mastered the art of rolling ALL OVER the bed in his sleep, kicking me, then rolling to the end of the bed and back and hitting Putra, and all the time looking so peaceful! Once I am awake in the morning I cannot seem...

100 Days of Happiness – Day 68  Posted on 04/07/2014
I was woken this morning at 5.30am by Samudra’s cries so tapped Putra’s arm to ask if he was up for a Car Free Day walk and was shocked to hear him say yes so early in the morning! We didn’t manage to actually leave the...

    Thank you so much for looking at our blog... I know, there are so many pages and so many photos! Treen is the expert writer but she has been so busy lately that it's difficult for her to keep it up... so I keep posting pics and forgetting to write accompanying text!

    Thanks so much for your feedback and great to hear from you!
