This version of The Little Drummer Boy keeps popping up on social media as this years goto Christmas song…… but the unofficial king of Christmas songs Bing Crosby, joined with David Bowie years ago to produce this gem.

Which is your favourite?

Each year I am on the hunt for a new Christmas album.

This one is beautiful.

The itunes download includes a 45 minute burning log video to sit beside as you listen.

Finale at the Opera House! 1000 kids

Finale at the Opera House! 1000 kids.

Last week our 10 year old…. and lots of other public school kids …… made their Opera House debuts. What an exciting night of so many talented kids.


Embarrassingly I made her get out her cello and pose standing (oh MUM!) in front of the Harbour Bridge.

“Oh, I get it” I say after the last one…. Coldplay’s “Strawberry Swing”.

….and I couldn’t resist a gratuitous cute shot.

Our family has been really enjoying this Flight of the Concords magic.

If you are wondering about the lyrics… is the extended version.

You can still purchase the single on itunes and the proceeds go to Cure Kids.


Easter hats

March 28, 2013


6 and 9 year old with their easter hats.

Well….I showed them the inspiration, took them to the $2 shop and this is what we ended up with.

Due to time being minimal, I made them under instructions.

Easter hats have been a much more joyful project since I did some research and found out they were really about spring…..yes, even in Autumn…. and nothing to do with Jesus.


The traditional take by 6 year old.


…..and a much more musical take by 9 year old.



Hymns without words.
