This small person is Matilda's best friend Emily.

We love her dearly. 

And personally, one of my favourite things about Em is her mother, my friend Lucy. (Don't you love it when your kids pick friends with excellent and funny parents? Go Tilds!)

Anyway, Luce and Em recently won tickets to the Wiggles in a raffle – and took us!! 

Acer Arena was going off like a frog in a sock. I think this moment below (photo by Lucy) was possibly the moment the Wiggles appeared on stage?

I think Tilly (that's her and Em in the mosh pit right in front of the stage) thought Anthony was doing the show just for her. Which of course, he was.



Ah, bright lights, big city. 

These are some of the things we'll miss. 

Because we are MOVING! Yep, we decided it's time to take these inner west city kids to the country, before they get big enough to refuse to come. 

We've got two weeks left in Sydney and then we're packing up and moving to a little patch of green on the south coast. It's got fruit trees and a chicken run and the most diabolical orange tiled kitchen bench you have ever seen. But it was a miracle to find such a place for rent in such a place, so we jumped on it. I'll cover the bench with flour. That's my plan. 

And we figured, if we moved somewhere with a bit of space, with a few green hills, our dearest friends will make the drive down to visit us!

All very exciting. A great fun New Year plan.
