I know I promised photos of all the girls on the birthdays…. but they were so bad I couldn’t put them through it!
….but here are the newly 7 year old and the newly 10 year old.

13 year old is again hitting the stage as part of her school musical (or dancical….as I like to call it).
Although she doesn’t have a main part, she is a ‘significant extra’.
If you are able to get to the area between the 29th of May and the 1st of June, let me know and I will arrange a ticket for you.

I have spoken about Chris’ books before on the blog. I can’t believe the last one in the series is finished and about to hit the shelves. If you haven’t read them, you should…and not just because he is my friend……
In keeping with my promise to write 25-50 word reviews……here is the next book.
A visit from the goon squad by Jennifer Egan
The book was interesting in it’s use of different written methods to tell the story…. including graphs and powerpoint.
I read it on the ipad to get the full force of the changing mediums.
The story itself is somewhat distressing and depressing.
A good read but not a must read.
The next book on the list….. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Let me know your thoughts on The Goon squad if you have read it. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

One of the classes I am studying this year is ‘Studio Concepts’.
For the last 6 weeks we have been looking at how scale, materials and surface effect how we see artworks…. and actually everything.
Here are my funny little finished works from the ceramics studio.
Next 6 weeks …. I will be in the jewellery studio.

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of seeing my first Bell Shakespeare production.
It was an early birthday present for me and a late birthday present for 13 year old.
Thank you Grani Jan and Fa Fa.
I think we are hooked now……
Who’s up for ‘A Comedy of Errors’ in November?

“Take photos of me floor dancing.” suggests 6 year old.
“Ok?” says Mum wondering what on earth that is.
“Oh, I get it” I say after the last one…. Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing”.
….and I couldn’t resist a gratuitous cute shot.
