Well after a long long time the series I worked on for a couple of years has been released. I can't say the story is fantastic but it is exciting to see all the models I made for each set brought to life and filled with action. The best part of the whole process was being able to work closely with Tony Pratt, a fantastic production designer and a lovely man.

Well we are feeling pretty proud of ourselves after harvesting our huge crop of pumpkins. Judging by the beautiful cloudy colour of the skins I think they must be Queensland Blues. It is a very exciting feeling to cut in to one and see such a gorgeous yellow inside and to know it’s organic and we grew it together. The baby has just started eating food so home grown pumpkin is next on the list of things to try. He has been a big help in the garden and we spend some time most days out there together. He looks at the sky and the trees and the chickens, and I prattle on about what I am up to.
Autumn is such a lovely time of the year I always think. I had a big overhaul of the garden and where mildewed pumpkin vines crept now tiny seedlings of winter vegetables are sprouting. It is a good feeling to see those future vegetables getting started.

We had a very lovely Easter down at the beach. We cooked, we ate, we dug all the cooch grass out of two massive garden beds and planted flowers for spring, no easy task I tell you.
You woke up before the sun and rabbits bounded away across the lawn. The bunny came and brought cloth eggs with bells inside tucked in a bird’s nest. We found a dead rabbit under a bush in the flowerbed and a little cousin left a loved blanket behind and had to do an emergency late night dash to retrieve it.. Bunnies surrounded us.
