I was thoroughly spoilt with lots of gorgeous presents - I'm so lucky to have family and friends who have such beautiful taste and talent. Here are a few of them.
Another milestone in our family - Ruby turned 10 last week.
Our gorgeous, messy haired, free spirit, rescuer of animals, collector of Groovy Girls, Mika fan - here she is this morning, dirty face and all!
And at least they have colouring to keep the kids amused.
On the subject of Andy Warhol again (oh yes, I am so good at the smooth segue!), I've been rediscovering The Velvet Underground lately. Reminds me of my days as an art student in the 1980's reliving the clothing and music of the 1960's, much to the amusement of my parents. And if, as they say, everything goes in 20 year cycles, then it's only right that we should now be experiencing a 1980's revival, which will have aspects of that 1980's 1960's revival. Did that make sense?
And speaking of 80's revivals, it is alarming how much of the music Nic puts on his mp3 player is from that era, but not necessarily what I was listening to at the time - now I know how my parents felt about all that 60's stuff I was listening to! I could never understand how they lived through the sixties and weren't fans of The Beatles, The Doors or The Velvet Underground. I'll try to remember that next time Nic is playing Thriller...

Alternating with The Velvet Underground in my CD player recently has been Jack Johnson's new album, Sleeping Through the Static, so I'll leave you with this quote:
