Australia has received it's little Christmas present, the Bruning family. Yes we are extremely tired from the ticker tape parades but we are so very happy to be here that we haven't minded the paparazzi intrusion. The boys are swimming in my parent's pool with Jonno and I am catching up on my favourite blogs. Hugo and Archie are thoroughly enjoying seeing my dad and step-mother (Fafa and Granny Lou-Lou), so much so that Hugo crept into see Dad during nap time and convinced him to rest with him in his teeny-tiny toddler bed.
This morning kicked off with a rush of creative inspiration (funnily enough, coming from all of the fruit and vege displays), visiting the Boneo Market. More photos to come but I had to add the Archibald Honey... Archie couldn't believe it. By the way, I just overheard Jonno asking Archie if he was having problems diving to the bottom of the pool. Archie explained, "It's because I'm floatish".


  1. I know how Archie feels - I am feeling very 'floatish' at the moment too, all that good pre-Christmas food!

  2. Blessings to you Katie and to your floatish sort of family. Now Pooh Bear might be able to add a sort of different slant on that if you asked him - it's just the sort of thing he would say!
    Wishing you all a wonderful snuggly time in the arms of your family, the joys of peace and happiness at Christmas and every success in the new year.

  3. Come back, come back, come back!!!!

    Hehehe! Just kidding! Sounds like you are having the perfect time, I'm soooo happy for you! We've had the best catch up with Aaron's nana down in Taranaki and is now playing catch up to get ready for the big day! I've still got one headband to make...typically last minute, but it will be done! Oscar is waking at either 4 or 5 in the morning...not sure what to do, but we are taking it in stride... :) as best we can. On the other hand, he is commando crawling so things are looking good!

    I wish you lots of fun, laugher, good food and especially good wine in the next few weeks.

    Return happy and floatish yourself
    lots of love

  4. So lovely to read all of the comments, Christel, I hope you get longer sleeps soon and Happy Christmas to you too Mary. See you tomorrow Lucy xxooxxooxx
