This is kind of the conclusion of our Veggie Box Garden.

It was a warm day, and Tim and I were out in the back yard.  With great ceremony, I led him over to the Veggie Box Garden and demonstrated what happens when we pull a carrot out of the ground.  He was quite awestruck, which was great cos that exactly the reaction I was going for - as in, Wow! This is where our food comes from!

Then we tasted the thing, and it -

it -

it ....

it wasn't nice!  It was small, hard, and bitter!

Not what I was going for at all.

xmas trainset

The photos look sweet, but I tell you, that train set is trouble!  If he wants to play trains, there's no dissuading him - even if it's bathtime, or teatime, or even and especially bedtime.

new year's eve

Hayden and I took Tim down to the beach to see the sun set on 2012, and at first I was bummed cos it looked like a bit of a fizzer (not the spectacular sunset I had been hoping for).  Then I looked around a bit, and I realised that this new year's eve was everything I wanted it to be.  It was the quietest and calmest moment at the end of a long hot day.  The locals were out fishing as usual - no big deal - and as we stood there a bunch of dolphins swam by.  Nice.
