3 great things and 3 not so great things.

  • I'm presently cramming for exams........Mathematics and Functional Linguistics, it is as fun as it sounds. Not so great.
  • Mothers day was bliss, a wonderful Brunch at the Ritz with eight other families. Great!
  • We have got another round of cheap flights and are off to Singapore for a extended long weekend. Great!
  • I have managed to get rid of the latest round of nits........I'm sure the girls have a giant flashing billboard, only visible to head lice, on their foreheads inviting all the head lice in Jakarta to come and party. (p.s. the girls always share with me.......) Not so good.
  • The leaking upstairs toilet is still leaking and the roof has collapsed for the second time under the dripping sewerage! Re-grouting the floor and re-plastering the ceiling does not fix a leaking pipe under a toilet. Oh the joys of unqualified tradespeople. Very not so good!
  • Here are some photos of a great night out at the ANZA club with an ABBA theme. Great!

Hi Kristina

Life is very busy here at the moment! I can't believe we are close to half way through the year already!
How have you been? I haven't heard from you in ages and wondered if you had been snowed in lol (I am constantly jealous of people that get cold winters!). Do you do facebook or have your own site? Let me know and we can catch up! (

What a terrific chance for your kids to become speakers of Indonesian and youngsters have the best chance of that. Bi-lingualism is very good for the mind and has good outcomes
