The traditional smarties photo

Here I am posing at Ellipsoidal Freeway Sculpture, that gorgeous artwork we never get to stop at normally. I took some other people's photos too. That's not a ghost in the photo, I just managed to get a smudge on the lens.

Jonathan and Jeff on the ride

Here's Jonathan and Jeff getting ready for the 35 km ride. Thomas has already disappeared into the distance. They caught him eventually ... I didn't catch up with the rest of the family until the finish line. We did do most of it together though.

The big bike ride!

Yesterday was the big Eastlink bike ride. This is the third year Jeff and I have done the 35km ride, and for the first time, Thomas and Jonathan joined us. I did some fundraising too, at work, and through crafty channels, and managed to get to $500. That meant I got to wear the fabulous fundraisers' jersey!

Encounter in Creepy Toy land

Another new creepy toy just joined the household, brought home from a scout hall trash and treasure. He has a certain something about him, don't you think? I think I shall call him Gerald.

While cruising the shelves of our house, Gerald ran into somebody. Somebody he was drawn to.

"Julia, is that YOU?"

"Oh Adrian, it was horrible!" (Turns out his name wasn't Gerald at all).

Turns out Julia's been here for years. We rescued her (and baby Pippa) from a church op shop in December 2008

... sadly we left her near some paint, glue, sequins and children ... and this is what happened to her.

Well, Adrian, Julia and Pippa are together again now. They have so much to talk about. We may even be able to undo Julia's makeover.

How to sell the iPad

Target at Knox have the iPad on display. Cool display. Not sure if the machine was actually running though. I didn't fancy touching it, because of the SMASHED SCREEN. They had fixed it up with sticky tape and put it right back on display. Go, Target!
