having painted a cool mural for Noë, Mac had to add to that first creation by coming up with a cool design for his door. so he came up with a custom font based around Noë’s name and the unique e/umlaut combination. here is the result, where the ë becomes a cool little frog. this might just yet turn into a bit of a side project - we’ll keep you posted…
graffiti themed chocolate bars - fresh outta NYC comes this great range of chocolate bars. pyMac just love it when things you dig get brought together as one.
the 21st September is world peace day, if you have any way to get involved with supporting the idea of world peace the 21st would be as good a day as any to get involved. down under a couple of film makers have launched million votes 4 peace with a view to raising awareness and collating a name and postcode for Australians who support peace.
well they say that having a baby changes your life, but the funny thing is at the moment it really is hard to say exactly how much. I know a few of you will be going Mac loves his sleep so that is one obvious area, and py must be feeding every couple of hours which must be a big change. however when people make that statement I am sure they are referring to bigger things like the sense of responsibility, how this little thing has a complete dependency on you both as parents, how you don’t get five spare minutes to your self and how hard it is to say goodbye each morning when you head to work.
thing is we have had a couple of other things that, for Mac at least, have kept some of the enormity in check. the first is our tendency to do big things in twos and or threes - so having bought our first home so close to noë’s birth that has given us another responsibility to come to terms with. the second is the curve ball called life - a few of you know, but on the day noë came home for the first time Mac also got the news that he had been made redundant, his new employer having gone into receivership (that’s another story).
now a few people might start thinking house, newborn - no job ARGHHHHHHHH!! however as the title suggests Mac was actually far more philosophical about this extra responsibility. see as all the dads out there will know Mac wasn’t exactly looking forward to going back to work proper, that whole first experience of kissing mum and baby goodbye for the day not knowing if the studio might need him to work late… py I’m sure was wandering exactly how Mac was going to really react to this bombshell - indeed in over 8 years together the burden of money expectations has probably been the only thing that Mac can get overwhelmed by. but a few days down the line and Mac was quite firmly unfazed, barely a couple of emails and a posting to a design forum and connections and job offers were surfacing - including a couple of interesting contracts that could be completed from home.
And so it is after nearly 7 weeks (noë will be 7 weeks on sunday) Mac has had the chance to work from home and spend time with Noë and py for all but 4 days, has had a studio pay for flights back to the Adelaide for the whole family and has been on hand to help py out between Photoshop and InDesing files. for the meantime this is the way things are going to stay and who knows it might become a more permanent arrangement for the pyMac family if the contracts keep rolling in.
as they say everything happens for a reason and right now we are grateful for little curve ball life threw our way.
enjoy every moment while it is with us…
well py has just returned to Melbourne after a week or so in Adelaide showing Noë off to all our family and friends (Mac is to return on Thursday after he finishes work). we had a really great time catching up with everyone and look forward to sharing our photographs. look forward to seeing you all again soon xxx
