The Red Baron

treasured: photofriday

Simon is plane crazy.
He reads about planes. He flies raido controlled planes. He has 2 flight simulators and dreams of having his own biplane ( one day we will have to have a huge backyard!)

I was out shopping and hadn't really found the perfect xmas gift for him at all. I had the plane fridge magnets. The books on aviation eras. But nothing perfect. Then I found this. Its a pedal car. With Wings. And a propellar. It has leather upholstery and rubber tyres on a tin wheel.

Its a pedal plane complete with Red Baron markings. It must have been treasured for a long time by, if not one, many boys in the 50 years of its life. I could almost picture them hurtling down hills with their tin wings oustretched, the wind ruffling their hair!

I know Simon will treasure it as much as they did. We both love old things. Old weird things. And especially old toys. It now takes pride of place in our lounge till we too have a child small enough to take the controls.

Merry Xmas 2003

belated Xmas greetings!: is it that time of year already?

I've been a little blog weary lately. In fact I've been a little computer weary also. Who would have ever thought! Certainly not my wonderful understanding husband. But no being online hasn't fussed me much of late. Instead I have been reading, sleeping and watching the rain. Its the wet season here in Singapore and like clockwork every afternoon at 4pm the sky opens up and someone pours out their heavenly bathwater.

Christmas was lovely. I got up late. (Thankfully our friends of the 7am starting building site next door were granted at least one day off) We had breakfast in bed and then did our presents by our tiny tree.

Everyone was so thoughtful!

The rest of the day was relaxing. We swam, we watched old Xmas movies and in the evening had a wonderful buffet dinner with friends and ended the evening tumbling in to bed with distended stomachs and a smile on our faces.

Hope Xmas was also lovely for everyone else! And or those I didn't get a chance to wish the best for the festive seaon click here for our Xmas card.

I hope you have a week filled with love and happiness and that the New Year brings you the start of dreams coming true. Here's to 2004!
