Last year, when I was pregnant with Tiger, I ordered an Amby Baby Hammock for our lounge room. I remembered how much Cherry loved being rocked to sleep as a new born and thought a hammock would be a great alternative to wheeling the pram inside.
Cherry reads the instructions and tells Aunty Nise what to do
“Good job Aunty Nise”
Tiger 1 month, sleeping like a baby in our bedroom
Snug as a bug
Tiger 3 months, chilling out in the lounge room
We even took the hammock outside while Cherry and Me played in our garden

Then we replaced the hammock with an Amby Jump Jump harness
He could bounce all day!
Until he falls asleep…

I recently discovered I can fuel my art addiction online. One of the word’s leading galleries, Saatchi has opened an online gallery called Saatchiart.com. It’s a great platform for emerging and established artists to upload, share and sell their works internationally, streaming conveniently into our homes.
If you would like anymore information about the artworks found in this post or Saatchi Art, feel free to leave a comment with your query and email address.

It’s been five years since we lost our family holiday home in the tragic fires that ripped through and destroyed the once incredibly beautiful town of Marysville. My grandparents Nana Nina and Papa Jerry built our wooden cottage back in 1990. My sister and I spent most of our childhood there with my parents, grandparents, friends and family. We loved hiking through the forrest, collecting mushrooms after the Autumn rain, fishing at Buxton Trout Farm, picking blueberries from the local berry farm, swimming at Marysville Pool and feeding rosellas on our balcony. Marysville was a very special place and we will treasure our time there forever.
Even though this post is slightly off the Cherry and Me topic, it is very important and close to heart. It’s a somber feeling flicking through old photos but I’d like share with you the very first moments we visited the ashes of our dear little house one month after the monstrous blaze swallowed everything.

My parents were there on Black Saturday and miraculously escaped moments before to safer grounds. An extremely traumatic experience that reminds us how precious life is. We plan on rebuilding one day. See our recent visit to Marysville and Healesville here.
Tiger is 6 months and is going through the “grab everything I see and put it in my mouth” phase.
