Midsummer 

Light until 10.30. We all sit quietly outside. Humid, rain then rainbow. Sebastian helps me eat. Valentina’s biscotti a great success. Light and greenery; June is special.

Midsummer Fair at RSSKL always magical. This year Sebastian dances to a Jewish song and Valentina lights the fire.​

​Midsummer fire – singing in the distance, the light of the torches, the strong voices saying the verse, the torches lighting the fire.


A tree shelters us from a heavy shower before a Polish salad.


Hours of basketball and rain adds to the fun.


Valentina’s class runs the coconut shy as usual.

    Your posts are always amazing and I have so much respect and admiration for you in your brave battle. I hope you are able to see the amazing work being done by Neale Daniher. He had raised about 4 million dollars for research. Into MND. Today at the MCG was a huge fundraising day for the Melb vs Collingwood match. Everyone nearly bought a blue MND beanie. The disease is something which gslvanised all footy supporters today. All the best Andrew and I hope there is a similar movement on UK working towards a cure.
