all you need is love. i remember when i was pregnant for the first time with our gracie girl four years ago & realising how true that is & how reassuring i found that at the time. we were living in a one bedroom apartment in st.kilda & i was freaking out about how it was all going to work, but it did & it always does. it was a super lovely apartment, but it was upstairs, on a noisy street & had no laundry. anyway, that's what i always think of when i see these words & then i sing the beatles' song in my head.. all you need is love, love, love. love is all you need. happy times. thanks for my new tea towel jacq. i got quite the birthday haul this year. the PH5, new earrings, awesome tea towel & i'm typing this in my new spotty gorman socks. lucky pants me.

that's right, you better believe it's real. yeah it's real. i'm not into the whole copy-cat, replica, faux, fake, furniture industry that knows no boundaries. anyway, this rare beauty is my spectacular birthday present from the husband. for those of you thinking; oh man, why doesn't my hurs-ban give me an original PH5 pendant from angelucci? stop. no husband is that good. i organised it. the husband paid for it & is painting our living area in preparation for it. what? you wouldn't repaint a huge, pain-in-the-ass, open plan area from 'dulux white swan' to 'dulux vivid white'? the PH5 demands the perfect white, not some lame ass creamy white. if you really, really want your own PH5, i can't promise anyone will help you paint your room the perfect white, but i'm pretty sure you could contact angelucci & ask them to find you one. no doubt it will take several months, but i'm sure they'll find you one too. modern day treasure hunters.

22 months & so big already. at least charlie thinks so. in his mind, there's nothing he can't do. nothing. in fact his favourite game at the moment is "sthoo-per dhar-lie!" ..(super charlie) as in "super grover!" ..he lets himself fall straight forward from standing, assuming i'll catch him and of course i do, but just make it worse because once i've done it once, it's the best game in the world. just a little bit disconcerting, especially when it involves heights. but i've gotta say, he is a tough little cookie. falls, scrapes & head-butts into furniture are simply met with a grumpy face and a quick "ouch!" anyway, getting charlie to sit on the rocker was not happening, so i had to get out the old blue alarm clock again. hey, it works. props to props.
p.s. if you like his little drum windcheater, it's from hamb who have their own retail shop in footscray across the road from the happy river cafe if you're local.
