R.I.P. Ptolemy...

Our faithful car, Ptolemy, who faithfully transported us eleven thousand miles, all the way around the USA, 33 states in all, AND Mexico, has finally stopped going today. Thank you Ptolemy, for being such a trooper!!! We'll miss you!! Bumping over mountain roads to remote hikes, zipping along the freeway, rushing our girls to school...

The Ady family's form of transport for the next chapter of our lives shall be our bikes, and bike chariot, which the girls ride in, snug and dry! Seattle is hilly (and rainy), so we shall be fit (and wet!!) Her public transport system is nothing like that of Sydney, or London, or New York City, but there are buses handy, and the girls LOVE riding the bus!!!! It's often a bigger treat than the supposedly exciting destination!!!

yay about your bike sam! but be careful! i remember when you fell off, on various occasions, being very worried about you! gosh, i'm such an oldest child!!

justin, it doesn't get as cold here as NY, but it rains, constantly, very cold rain... i have an aussie rain coat - you know those bush ranger green ones?
I no longer have my car - it also expired - so I bought a shopping trolley, and am saving the planet that way.

i used to just 'borrow' shopping trolleys, in parramatta! it's very admirable, mum, to have bought one ... ohhh - my morning sojourn is ending - the girls are awake! so gorgeous!
