Babies, babies, babies

Everywhere I look, my friends are having babies.

I met two little charmers on the weekend: Madeline Green and Josef Stransky.

Hello chubby bunny!

Little man Josef - 4 days old.

YouTube Sessions & Jessica Mauboy

I met the lovely Jessica Mauboy at the launch of YouTube Sessions. She has a fantastic voice and was quite adorable.


Great Scott!

Alec and I had a fantastic time at a Back to the Future charity screening to raise money for the Parkinson's Foundation.

Welcome Summer!

Sydney is suddenly tropical. Stinking hot days, followed by days of non-stop rain.

I can't wait till Christmas this year. After last year's insanity of planning a wedding, this year is looking calm and relaxed by comparison.

Yayyyy summer!

Aston Live at TGIF

I had the amazing pleasure to watch the talented classical group, Aston, live at Google.




Halloween 2010

Even though we don't traditionally celebrate Halloween, I love that Google makes a big deal out of the day purely because it's a bit of extra fun in the week. Here are a few pics from Googl'ween!

Ohh scary spider in reception.

The cafeteria gets a makeover.

There was a pirate wench in reception.

Stephen Conroy made an appearance handing out filters.

Victoria loving the pumpkin carving.

The bogan and Raggedy Ann make small talk.

On the weekend, I went to a party hosted by a friend and dressed up as Malice in Wonderland.

You're next, not-so-innocent pooch!

Chiara turns 1

I've had a busy few months since my US-of-A trip with a lot of work, birthdays, netball and dance classes.

One particularly important birthday was for the ever-fashionable, completely adorable Chiara.


Little Miss celebrated her birthday with a pink tutu and totally gorgeous cake.


Happy birthday little one!

California and NYC Trip

I haven't felt much like blogging lately, so this is a brief account of my recent USA trip. It was mostly for work, but I managed to squeeze in a trip to NYC and Monterey. Most of the trip, when I wasn't working, I was catching up with friends and family.

First stop, San Francisco.

Catching up with Isis, Mansi and baby Maya.

Dinner at Greens Restaurant in SF with Jamie, Lisa and Isis.

One of Mansi and Jason's Abyssinian cats.

Next destination, NYC! I stayed with Masa for a few days in Brooklyn.
