welcome to our world little man! this is the most recent picture i have of you and your mum on my visit to england. this was taken about 6 weeks ago when your mum and her friends were having afternoon tea and cake in the sun. you must have been enjoying it too, you were wriggling, making us all laugh. we didnt know it then but we had a hunch you'd be a boy. we even called you roy all weekend. ( im secretly hoping it will stick... little roy).
im so glad we were right! i cant wait to see some more recent pictures of you. give your mum and dad a little squark from me. i miss you all and wish i was there to say hello and welcome and congratulate you all in person. sending you bountiful amounts love from japan. oxoxoxoxox

Alela Diane - Oh! My Mama

happy birthday mum. this song always makes me think of you. its such a beautiful tribute to all mothers, especially ones who pass on their love of singing and dancing as you undoubtedly have to me.
so mama, for all the lullabys, for all the sing-alongs, for all the pushing back of the kitchen table so we could really swing and twist and shout...and for all the other things too, thank you. have a happy day.i love you with all my heart oxoxox
ps i told my second graders it was my mums birthday and they all burst into a chorus of *happy birthday ellis mum* made me a bit teary it did.

so now you know.


im back. I took a break from blogging this summer. i didn't intend to but the weeks went by and it just sort of happened. sitting in front of a computer just wasn't on the top of my list of things to do. my apartment doesn't have a.c and the temperatures soared to brain boiling made doing anything inside rather unpleasant... so you see words, they just did not come to me.
then there was the three and a half weeks i spent back in the motherland visiting friends and family. getting my fix of music festivals and the great out doors (not to mention roast lamb and rain) which left me very little internet time. more on that later, but for now a quick hello im back or as they say in Japan ta-dai-ma! its good to be back oxoxo
