10 highlights of 2013...
#1. Holidays! To Tahiti and Queenstown/Wanaka
#2. Linden broke his leg and was in a full cast for 6 weeks. Surprisingly a rich and pleasent experience for all of us.
#3. Alfie joined our family at the beginning of the year - then we nearly lost him when he broke his pelvis and hips - But he made a full recovery, Yay. We love him to bits. And no-one else was allowed to break anything else ;)
#4. Our books are now available in Australia, Germany, Korea and we've just sent artwork off to print for French editions.
#5. Party, party - Linden's forth birthday was awesome!
#6. Mark took our books to the world with trips to Taiwan as part of the TIBE fellowship at the Taipei Bookfair, to Germany for Frankfurt Book Fair and spend some time with our German publishers. And to Japan to do a bit of an Author tour. His passport looks a bit cooler than mine.
#7. Our new book! The Boy and the Cherry Tree is the story that brought us together, and fourteen years later we are thrilled to have published it.
#8. Lots of rockin tunes can be heard coming from our studio!
#9. On Mark's trip to Japan he had an opportunity to meet a creative hero of mine , 'Katsumi Komagata' and share our work with him.
#10. We bought our first property - the worst house in our favourite Street. So in 2014 we will be buiding a brand new home for Dreamboat!
Hello 2014 - pleased to meet you!
