a year in the life…day 91: black dragons, old houses

image

Today we went to Craig and Fiona’s house for a D&D tabletop battle. We even beat the black dragon. Of course, the weird thing is that Craig and Fiona’s was where we were leaving until about 6 months ago. Mostly it felt like their house, but every now and again, as if out of the corner of my eye, it felt strange. Like the fact that their fridge opens the other way….

A year in the life…day 90: jammy face boy with violin

Jude seems incapable of eating without smearing food all over his face. I noticed the jam this morning half way on our walk to school. I managed to resist the urge to spit on my fingers and rub it off. Like a mother…

I burnt my arm getting hot cross buns out of the oven this morning. Clearly a seasonal accident.

A year in the life…day 88: so tired + new hair

After 4 hours sleep and a day of work I am pretty much so tired I can barely think. But I do have new hair. It has gone more strawberry blonde, but you can”t tell that really from the picture.

Duran Duran was still totally worth it though.

A year in the life…day 87: Duran Duran

29 years ago I went to my first ever concert, Duran Duran at Memorial Drive. I still remember the completely visceral thrill of it and how excited and alive it made me feel. And also I still remember what Simon Le Bon was wearing.

So 29 years later I get to see Duran Duran again, and apparently have now had a crush on Simon for more than 30 years. This is longer than Louise, who made the road trip to Sydney and back for the show with Michelle and Jasmin and I, has been alive. Oh well. Anyway it was a great show and they did play all the favourites. It must be amazing to be able to go out on stage and play a song you made up more than 30 years ago and have a giant crowd shout it back at you. THIS IS PLANET EARTH.
