here, which then found me checking out artist, sally joubert's website, which i blogged about here. well, the other day, the husband & i went to pick up our new painting. it was fantastic to pick it up from sally's studio in richmond (even if we did wonder if we were wandering into a private detective's den.. but that's another story) & have the chance to meet with & have a good chat with the vivacious sally. check out the view from her light filled studio.. no wonder there have been one or two paintings by sally of that big ol' sign. now we just have to find the perfect place for it at home.

oh baby.. my funny little valentine. i thought today would be the perfect day to announce our happy news to everyone.. baby number 2 is on the way! well, not until august, but what better day than valentine's to share our news. i found these baby birth posters by printspace on etsy, which i think are really sweet. i'm planning on ordering one for the new baby once they arrive & also ordering one for mirka. chances are they'll be sharing a room, so i think these will look great framed and up on their wall. love.

man, it feels busy around here, hence the sporadic bloggin going on. i'm back in the office a couple of days a week, which means early morning starts, bundling the little one off to childcare, dropping the husband off at the train station & a full day at work.. all before the reverse at the end of the day. anyways i've been thinking that i need to find a friendly alarm to wake up to & thanks to this post, i think i've found it.. it's the bird box alarm clock by luckybits. it's a little home to sit your iphone in, with a cut out to see the clock & hear a recording of birds chirping. check out the video. how good will it be to wake up to birdies chirping? real good.
update: it's done. i can just imagine the husband's reaction to this one when it arrives. but, it only cost $19.92 including shipping from the uk. not bad huh? and that's with the aussie dollar being down a bit.

happy river cafe for breakfast this morning and i have to tell you, it is the best place to go with kids.. we could actually relax & enjoy our coffee, without worrying which chair mirka would try and climb, only to want down again as soon as she got up there. the husband & i have given it a good go, continuing our pre baby, let's-go-out-for-breakfast weekend routine, i mean it used to be so easy when mirka was a baby.. we even took her out to our local cafe the first day after we came home from hospital.. but, not so easy anymore.. the last few times with mirka have been a stretch, so we were very happy at the happy river cafe. mirka played on the lawn amongst the mountain of toys, while we had a civilised breakfast. freedom.

blah. it's been a week already since my last post & i just haven't been feeling it, so i've been hiding down the rabbit hole instead. where to start? i think i'll just post some nice photos of water lilies i bought from flowers vasette in fitzroy, who by the way have someone quite funny in their office doing their twitter updates. you can follow them here. anyway, i love me some water lilies & it was fun to use the mirka mora vase for the first time.. and yes that's the husband in the background of one of the photos.. he is always trying to sneak in somehow.
