Flashback: Timmy's Little Kitchen (Sept 2012)

This was the day that Timmy received his little kitchen.  It was instant love - well, instant engagement anyway.

I remember that he played with it so long and so intently that Hayden and I were able to sit down and have a cup of coffee together - and our first conversation in months. That year, 2012, between Timmy's first and second birthdays, was tough. Maybe even our toughest. The fun, and lets be honest the success of this gift to Timmy was like a little burst of sunshine between dark clouds.

A little garden house

The weather in Townsville in July is reliably charming. This was the day (back in 2014 - I'm trying to catch up here a bit) that we had a new double bed mattress delivered for Timmy.  Our neighbour Natalie had the idea of turning the big delivery box into a cubby house. It lasted nearly a week before it was rained on.
