Last Post of 2009!

Hi everyone!

Well it’s 11pm and we’re just waiting for the fireworks, so I thought I’d take the time to wish you all a very happy New Year! The theme for the Sydney celebrations this year is “Blue” – lots of the people down at Circular Quay (on the harbour) are wearing blue, and it’ll be interesting to see if the theme carries across to the fireworks as well. Our eldest cheeky monkey is very excited because for the first time ever we said he could stay up to watch the fireworks (on TV), but he’s fading fast. He’s insisting that he’s not tired, though!!

Anyway, I just wanted to say how much I’ve enjoyed catching up with you all again, and thanks for all the comments on the posts – it’s been really great to hear from you all!

And once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Best wishes to you all for 2010 (scary to think we’re in a new decade, isn’t it?!)

Take care, and all the best,

Rachel, Chris, and the two cheeky monkeys


Hello Rachel! I wish you all good and your family. I'm really happy to see your little angels and very pleased to see your little one. It's so good to be part a of BBC Le we blogged with you in 2007 and you were three then and now this new arrival has Mashallah grown up too and Owen really has the attitude of a big bro. Hope to meet you again in 2010. Best wishes, Naheed
