and so to Starship….

We got an email from Starship Hospital that Albie is scheduled for his Rastelli the week beginning Monday 9 July. Its great to have a bit of warning so we can gather ourselves, stow our strength and GO DO THIS THING.

Jason, who is one of our besties ( and a brill photographer) very kindly took some photos of us on Sunday. I find it hard to choose the ones to share with you. I know in my head that realistically you don’t need to see all sixty-eight  of my favourite shots. But my heart begs to differ, simply because I have never had a favourite sixty-eight of anything before. So, I’ll just share some of the ones involving The Cat.

There we were, family-ing it up for the camera when,

“Hey look guys, there’s a cat across the road…”

“Its coming this way Albie”

“I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!!!! HERE THE CAT COMES!” (frantic arms and legs a-shaking)

And a gingerly touch of its tail on  its arrival.

The cat added a certain impromptu magic that’s for sure..

Excitement Overdrive.

BTW, Starship? Surely no coincidence the hospital shares its name with the super 80s rock group responsible for such hits as this and this? I am not sure we will be building cities on rock and roll (clearly not feasible), but the intention is definitely that nothing’s going to stop us now.


  1. Hi Sarah, We think about you guys a lot, your little man is such a sweetie. Hang on in there and we just love getting the updates please continue to keep us in the picture.
    Had a cuppa and a chat with dad in New Plymouth the other day.
    Take care,
    Love Auntie Adie n Uncle David xxx

  2. Everybody knows that a city built on rock and roll would be structurally unsound…sheesh!

    We’ll be here when you come up, let me know if I can pick you up from the airport or anything like that. I already have a list of things to do to keep you busy.


  3. 68 sounds just FINE here too, I think you might be greatly underestimating the level of the addiction amongst his fan base! 🙂

  4. You’ll be deep in our thoughts come wk of Rastelli. AND I’d also LOVE to have 68 favourite somethings – wow. Bring on the other pics I say too – not hard to see why they’re all your faves – these are my kinda family pics xo

  5. Oh Lordy, those are gorgeous photos! We want a cuddle please!! Sending loads of love to you all but I know that nothing will stop you and that makes my heart happy xxx
