In the afternoon before Noni cut my hair off to be sent to be used to make a wig for someone going through cancer. 10 years of growing my hair long (it grows slowly!) and we take a photo to mark the day.
Later Mum nervously stands with scissors and says “but what if I wreck your hair and it looks terrible?” and I laugh, and shrug my shoulders and say “it’s just hair”. I’ve loved long hair and been attached to it at various stages but now it feels easy. Now someone else can love my hair too. How grateful I am that I’ve been able to grow it and someone else can enjoy it.
The little tag-a-long. Completely convinced that he is old enough to do everything that the big kids are doing.
“Mum! Florin is wrecking our game! Mummmmmm” I hear and Florin is unperturbed – not understanding – smiling happily to be amongst his idols. I pick him up, his legs still kicking happily and move him away, his eyes tracking the big kids until they are well out of sight.
I’ve been a little slow in sharing some of the client jobs I’ve been working on lately.
This is a video I made a little while ago for Amby Baby Hammocks and it was such a pleasure to work for Trish on showcasing the Amby Air hammock in film. Best viewed in HD.
It was also so very nice to be able to use music by an Australian favourite Jay Laga’aia (who doesn’t love Playschool?).
Trish also hired me to supply some still imagery and here are a few. It’s so nice being able to work for companies that produce products I think are great. Companies owned and operated by mothers are also to me a very special kind of wonderful.
After filming, we went on to use this hammock daily for Florin and it was such a nice addition to our life. Especially useful for us as a bed sharing family having somewhere Florin could nap safe and sound out of the way of his siblings. You might remember seeing Florin using it to nap while the kids and I swam in the afternoons at the beach during summer. Time goes way too quickly!
Curious little George. On the daily crawl to find out what everything is and what everything does. Daddy was using this very strange apparatus to make lots of loud noise and curious little George was not content to let it continue without getting a closer look. So close it started to suck him up.
