I mentioned about sometimes feeling at the bottom of a hole..what I forgot to say is that sometimes the notes come from beautiful people who are in their own holes themselves - yet they still manage to get a note to me. One of those friends said it's to some degree how you are as a person before you lose a child that dictates how you will pull through afterwards. I totally agree and I have to say to those people who give so selflessly even with their own immense sorrow, you must have been truly beautiful before and it still shines through now. xx
I'm asking a special favour to everyone today. One of Ava's little friends in Heaven, James Krainich, would be turning three today, June 26. If you're able to send three balloons skyward for James, it would mean a lot to his family. If you'd like to take a photo and email it to me at email@example.com I will forward it to Michelle. Having experienced first hand the beauty and comfort in seeing people all around the World releasing balloons for Ava, I know how special this would be for James' family. It's so important for us Mummys (and Daddys) to feel that our little ones are never forgotten. Jo, Michelle and Spencer, we are thinking of you so much today and know that Ava will help James celebrate. The rainbows are his today. :)
With much love.

Because if Kate didn't send me pretty spotty ribbon then I'm sure I'd have stayed with the carousel at least a week or two longer :p
No, actually the reason I've changed my header is that it's dawned on me that I tend to run with certain themes for my site/blog and then get sick of them quite quickly. (not one word, Carrie. :p) Because Ava's illustrations mean so much to me, I can't bear to think that I'd ever tire of looking at them so to keep them extra precious, I've decided to go with something else. Hope you like it :)
I wanted to say thankyou so much to everyone who's commented and emailed me since my last post - in those moments it makes me imagine I'm at the bottom of a dark hole and little notes are dropping down to me. They don't pull me out of the hole but they do make a teeny bit more bearable being there. I'm so grateful.
Well it's been an uneventful week, apart from Macey losing his first tooth (and his Daddy pitching it down the sink by mistake...shhh) and the boys beginning school holidays on Friday. We've already done the movies, the park and pizza night. Are we there yet? :p
Here is Missy Ivy looking like a big girl with her piggytail and look of serious concentration, taken today.

So there you go...a peek into Ivy's bookcase. I'm quite sure I've never posted so many pictures of non moving objects :p

I'm so excited! I've been working on my new site which includes gorgeous illustrations by Mandy Sutcliffe from Belle & Boo so have decided to pretty up my blog, with Mandy's permission of course, and include one here. Mandy is an amazing artist - she's doing five commissions of Ava for me and I'll be really sad when she finishes - she's just been so beautiful to work with.. I chose photos that were really special to us and to see them illustrated by Mandy took my breath away.
Check out Mandy's Etsy shop where she sells gorgeous originals and prints and other sweet things.

Seeing as I had nothing new to proof last night, I resorted to going over old boy photos and had a giggle remembering this day, over a year ago. The moment I saw the boys heading for the mud puddle, I ran to get my camera. Both the boys AND I got in trouble for the mess!!

I don't normally do this kind of thing but was looking through old photos today and thought I'd post a few...
This is me circa 1992 with my first proper boyfriend. We lasted three years until he became quite sure I had a thing for my flatmate. I was quite sure he was wrong at the time but seeing as I went on to marry and have four children to my beloved flatmate, I guess he was onto something!!!
Similar timeframe, outside the MCA in Sydney. I'd gotten home from work the day before and announced "Hey, Andy Warhol has an exhibition in Sydney this weekend, do you want to go?". So being 20 and free, forementioned fellow and I drove the nine hours to get there, only to find the Gay Mardigras was also on so we had nowhere, and I do mean nowhere, to stay. I'm suprised we actually lasted after that weekend, it was so damn miserable :p
1991. When Daisies Attack....
Now at the risk of never living this down, I had to share my totally humiliating attempt at chanelling Drew Barrymore. Sherrie and I took ourselves along to one of those ridiculous studios where they plaster you with a tonne of makeup, airbrush you to within an inch of your life and insist you look breath-taking. You decide for yourself.
