Airline pilots No comments yet

Christmas has come and gone, the house has been packed and loaded, our winters clothing is at the ready. We’ve arrived in Pretoria (where it is noticeably hotter than in Cape Town) from where we will depart for Austin on Thursday. Adam is piloting this journey in style having been bought a ticket of his own (thanks Postilion).

Oh, don’t be concerned we will be uploading pictures that are not just of the little boy, really – promise.

Time’s running out No comments yet

It’s the day before Christmas and with one week to go till the move the house is settling into a justified chaos as piles of giftwrap vie for space with items to be packed, donated, recycled, thrown away and (of course) Adam’s ever-expanding trail of crawling destruction.

A flood of stuff
