“In good condition. Some small stains – should come out.”

Yet another classic auction with some great questions and answers that are well worth a read for some light entertainment.

Sadly the auction has been removed and is no longer in Google’s cache, so here’s a screenshot of the original page for your enjoyment…

First trip on a plane

Matthew has now had his first trip on a plane. Here’s the good, the bad and the ugly of the weekend…

The Good

  • The little man didn’t seem to mind the plane at all – some drinking on the up and down obviously helped and he even managed some sleep in the cruise.
  • In more first time family greets Matthew met Aunty Sarah from Perth and was very happy to do so!
  • The wedding of Steve and Jane in the Catlins went off without a hitch. Nice ceremony, good speeches and a superb buffet.

The Bad and the Ugly

  • South Otago weather. Brrr. Cold and wet. Luckily there was a wet option for the wedding which included a large open fire.
  • Air New Zealand leaving two bags in Wellington and us having to chase them up all afternoon to get a straight answer on if and when they would be delivered. The lack of apology by baggage staff at Dunedin airport didn’t help either.

Despite the bad and the ugly the weekend was a success overall and proved to us that it’s not impossible to travel with an infant!

Since arriving home we’ve moved Matthew into his cot, which looks way to big for him, but the bassinet is getting a little small. This has resulted in many houdini acts – he can get out of his bedding within minutes!

He’s also taken a liking to talking to himself… (click to play or download mp3)

Three Months

Jabs, a new album and yet another video…

Yup, Matthew hit the 3 month mark last week which meant it was time for needles round 2. Again he coped really well – I suppose it helps not understanding the what and why and forgetting it all pretty quickly.

If you’re browsing the Gallery, you might notice a new album for Matthew catering for the 3+ month mark – thus far containing just the one photo, but I’m sure we’ll add more in the near future.
