Because my brain is struggling to write proper sentences, here are a few short ones of what we've been up to lately...

I've been remembering the good times we had while we were visiting Australia - loved it!

Our boy started drum lessons this last week and loves it! p.s. I reckon he's super cute too.

In other news: Being avid Android supporters, we were rather suspicious when we found Apple stickers all over our car this week...

After a bit of a break from my #mileaday commitment, I've started to get back into the groove.  It feels so good to get fit again (although it doesn't feel great waking up at 6am to do it).  I've had quite a few questions about whether I run or walk? How far I go? Have I lost weight? etc.  

Just for those people - I run on a treadmill for 20 minutes most mornings (around 3.2km), I feel like I'm dying while doing it and yes I've lost weight (around 9-10kgs) but only after I started watching what I ate as well as exercising.  So there - hopefully that takes care of all of those curious questions.  The NOOM app has been one of the major helpers - and it's now even available for the iphone, so check it out!  I'd highly recommend it.

I still love cake and chocolate though.

Yummy stuff has been consumed this week...

Knitting lessons have begun (mainly because I, a lefty crocheter, can't be bothered teaching my right handed girl how to crochet).

We recently met our little great nephew Asher - we think he is adorable, but I'm not so sure what he thinks of us...

So there's a little snapshot into the crazy life of the Drakes - I'm off to rest my brain and crochet while I'm at it!
