Dear Olive,
It was Fathers Day on the weekend and what better way for you and Shane to celebrate than with a spot of good old road side shopping*. It's one of Shane's favourite past times (he's most excellent at it), how special for him to know you're just a chip off the old block. Your new shape sorter (all original pieces included!) comes with us everywhere now. (How handy are handles?) You're a bargain seeker from way back. You picked up your favourite orange teddy** "Juan", for a song at a garage sale once. Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, especially mine and yours, because they're both so wonderful.




*also celebrated with a new pair of shorts and lots of cuddles
**ugly and not necessarily endorsed by Shane and I. You saw it at a garage sale and what can we say, you had to have him.


PS I wore mustard pants and a purple top. Fucking colourful bunch aren't we, Shane said as we left the house.

sweet sorter, Olive!

...cracked up at Shane's comment. Is that why he wears tonal pants, socks and shoes? Trying hard to balance you all out? hehe... LOVE Olive's get-up! x

Dear Kellie,
Nice to find another mum of another Olive...look forward to reading of your adventures--a bit more colourful than ours. We're usually all seven wearing black and grey...although we've branched out to brown, mustard, olive and copper with the occasional red thrown in.
Glad to find your lovely blog.
