simply wonderful. tessa’s magical dress seems to accentuate them both. michael the big brother, and the edge of the dune with beachgrass seems like home – i can hear the waves rolling over on hervey bay. beautiful children and photograph!

It’s one of my favourite photos tipota (taken a while back now) and I have it on canvas on the wall of our house. Tessa loves dressups – I’ll miss that stage of them growing up.

Neat little poem about a universal problem. At the moment I have a 34 and a 35, yes that close, who are playing no speakies! Love each other to bits but… Me say nothing! Old enough to know better!
Lovely pic of lovely kids GB.
By the way, fixed those typos. (thanks).
