Went and saw Vince (who is assisting me on this commercial I’m doing) play drums in his band Sherpa.

I love NZ. Something about it always reminds me of Australia from when I was a kid. It’s maintained an innocence to a degree and somehow remains ‘simpler’ in the best possible way. Not to mention the Kiwis are heaps nice.

Why am I the 30 millionth person (on YouTube) to hear and see Lana Del Ray. I didn’t know anything about Lana Del Ray until yesterday when I read a newspaper article about why everyone in the world ‘hates’ her. So then I just had to go and see who and what people were all in a tiz about.
And now, I’m obsessed with her… which just proves that old saying “The only thing worse than being talked about, is not being talked about.”
I don’t really care if she has ‘duck lips’ or she’s the daughter of some rich guy or she changed her name, or she’s too pretty / ugly or can or can’t sing. I know I’m being sold something that isn’t what it appears (or is it?). It’s been packaged well, the wrapping is nice and it makes a sweet and mysterious sound when you hold it up to your ear and shake it. Regardless, I think this song and the clip (which makes the song ‘sound’ even better) is stunningly beautiful.

A little off topic for Hoaxville but today was a big day in our house as Rosebud had her first day at school. Big for her and perhaps even bigger for her Mummy and Daddy. We felt quite good about Ollie going to school, in fact we counted down the days in anticipation for both he and we were ready for it! But little Rosie, our baby, it just doesn’t seem right to be dressing her in a uniform and taking her to school. She is so little and so innocent and so sweet!
I’m very conscience of time passing. I’ll never say “they grow up so fast…”. I constantly take in the moment with both Rosie and Ollie taking detailed mental snapshots of how big they are, where they are and what they are doing. But for some reason its very tricky to get my head around Rosebud heading off to school…
She literally ran to school, dragging us by the hand to get her there quicker.
But once in the classroom and surrounded by new faces there was a moment of hesitation…
But as the wave of nerves passed a smile appeared and all was well. She was happy.
Nat and I lingered (in denial) for as long as we could. Finally slipping away when she focused on an activity. As I was walking out the door I turned to see her one last time. One of those bitter sweet moments. My heart breaking, because everything changes from here on in, but also proud to see her so eager to step out and into world and all it has to offer.
The house was very quiet today, especially for Nat.
But a long 7 hours and 30 minutes later…
I know I’m a gushing proud parent. But check out the ‘blue checked uniform details’ on that drawing! Genius!
