it’s the new new blog

kidsinbath

yes. we’re moving everything!

in case you haven’t heard, the leahys are moving from singapore to mornington, melbourne in November 2009

i’m swapping chilli-crab for grilled yabbies, perpetual humidity for the four seasons (sometimes in a single day, purportedly), mosquitoes for midges, shopping malls for beaches, a concrete patio for 3 acres of gardens…

sounds good so far doesn’t it…

but here’s the rub – bye bye to our surly driver Mr. Mo, 2 live-in maids- Nonplussed Noor and Scurrying Suma, the cheerful pool guy Mr. Lee, and the gardener Mr Teo and his smiley Bangladeshi helper.

in exchange, we have…. a weekday nanny, a subscription to a cleaning service and my skinhead husband in an apron over his board shorts.

it’s going to be an interesting trade-off kiddies. and we’ll keep you posted on all the gory details. once they are public, of course.

right now, all i can say is that i’m enrolled in a bachelor of fine arts degree, managing the portfolio, freelance writing and working on my upcoming book. and mark is plotting to take over the world, one poem at a time.

and we’re trying to keep finn off the naughty step.  which seems to have developed a slight dent in it, shaped, strangely enough, like a 2 year old’s bottom.
