first father’s day present

This year’s Father’s Day isn’t my first, but it is the first where I received a gift for being a father 🙂 Of course Anna picked it and footed the bill, but this was the moment where Micaiah understood the concept of giving a gift away (instead of receiving it) – which is pretty special in my mind as we hope that he’ll learn to be generous for the rest of his life.

The present I got is a really good coffee grinder- and making it even better was the fact that it was on sale for half price! I’m pretty excited about it, so much so that I havn’t even opened it yet. Just waiting to finish off a packet of ground coffee I bought at Coles before I set it all up and grind some beans from a friend who roast his own beans – our plunger is getting a bit of workout at the moment 🙂

On a less jovial note, I found two stubs of white hair in my beard on the side of my face!

jemimah and noodles

Jemimah is usually quite a fussy eater, but this was a pleasant surprise when we went to Bondi for a bit of a treat on Queen’s Birthday (Really funny overhearing a mum marvelling at her plate of food: ‘you don’t get this at Hurstville! Its a real bowl!’ – its funny because we thought the exact same thing too about Eastgardens :D).

Shout out to the beef noodles at New Shanghai at Bondi Junction Westfields!
