Farewell St Kilda. Hello Eltham.

screen-shot-2016-10-18-at-9-18-03-pm

In two years I’ve moved from the the bright city lights of Singapore, to beach-side boho St Kilda, and now to a new family home in leafy suburb of Eltham, Victoria. Change is good! Here are 5 things I’m looking forward to in our new Australia neighborhood;

1) Having an open log fire

2) Being barefoot in the grass in our own garden

3) St Andrew’s bohemian local hippy market

4) Living across the road from Edendale community farm

5) Starting a veggie patch.

 

 

 

 

Pic of the week; Singapore Stopover

A short and sweet 5 days in my favorite to show our baby where mum and dad first met 2 years ago. Well, that and to break up the marathon Australia flight in Asia and take the edge off the jetlag. And to show off the baby with our remaining friends over a boozy brunch at Cafe Melba. AND because we love a (third!) round the world trip…Ok, any excuse to revisit this city :)

Pic of the week; Tickhill, England…

Winter carols by Tickhill Buttercross for baby's first English Christmas. On our 21 day trip we squeezed in; wine & cheese in a tee-pee in a very flooded York, breakfast at the Tetley with old colleagues in Leeds, some baby cuddles in Ipswich, family fun at Centre Parks Sherwood Forest, New Years Eve in the Scarbs, and a spot of world domination over the board game Risk. Classic English family Christmas.

The Annual St Kilda Festival. Fairground rides, hippy stalls, gourmet food stands and free music, right in our neighborhood.
