At long last, the highly anticipated Balinese adventure with Andru, Robyn, the Cabin Girl and Powder Monkey was ready to start. The children had been counting down since January and were so excited to get up at 4:30am to get going. Jetstar was less enthusiastic.

We’re not sure what we expected... )

While not matchmaking unwilling meese, both the Powder Monkey and Cabin Girl enjoy eating their own body weight in Edamame (Japanese soybeans, which is odd because everything else green is anathema to the boy). Then we noticed that the Woolworths sushi bar (you know, the sort they’re putting in to drive local sushi bars out of business) are also selling them. Check out the ingredients!caution: may contain traces of soybeans )

Once upon a time, a Year 12 VCAL class was given the task of choosing a skill (or a talent) to teach the rest of their class. One boy - let’s call him ‘Aiden’ - decided that he would teach his peers the art of procrastination. He was pretty excited, but never got around to preparing it. VCAL!! *snappy salute* )

We woke up one morning and realised we'd been on the road for eighty days, and also it had been eleven years since we'd visited the Tower of London. Holy shit, we thought, I wonder what has changed?! In the spirit of a good quest, we set forth. Have at it!! )

“I had neither kith nor kin in England, and was therefore as free as air -- or as free as an income of eleven shillings and sixpence a day will permit a man to be. Under such circumstances, I naturally gravitated to London, that great cesspool into which all the loungers and idlers of the Empire are irresistibly drained.” ― Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet
luckily our income has gone up.... )
