When you buy a book from me, you're buying more than a children's story book. You are buying years of reconsiderarion and self doubt. You are buying months of disappointments and months of overcoming obstacles. You are not buying just a book, you are buying something that allows me to live my dreams, an inspiration for our children, a contribution to help make our communities a better place. A statement to prove the doubters wrong. You are not just buying a story book but a voice that our world needed to hear.
Showed Norah her second home, @costco. She had a major explosion in the parking lot and slept the whole time once we got in. So, successful visit for her. 🙄 If you’re wondering, yes, we did get all of the samples and the twin pack of @nutella. 😬
It is thanks to the support of people like you that have made this miracle possible. You have enabled the poorest patients to get surgery, even when, like Desire, the cost would usually be far out of reach.
You have helped fund the training of the skilled surgeon, Dr Nkumbe, and the specialist nurse and outreach worker.
Thanks for helping Desire reach his dreams. There are so many other fathers, like him, who need this miracle too. Please give what you can today. #Dream4Sight

Let’s talk about speech delay in kids and my personal experience with this.
👶🏽 A large percentage of kids are able to go through life with no speech disorders. However, some kids do have them. If detected early, it can be easily and quickly resolved in most cases and it prevents the child from being an unnecessary target for bullies in school. If your child goes to some form of daycare or school, speech delays can easily be picked up by the child’s teacher or carer, or even by you as a mum or dad.
In some cases, their speech rectifies itself. In other cases, intervention is required like speech therapy. If this happens to your child, it is not the end of the world. I remember being told my son needed speech therapy and I was worried. In hindsight, it was nothing to worry about. He had speech therapy for 6 months and he is now as good as new!
So, if you have concerns with your child’s speech, seek help sooner rather than later. .
We've been trying healthy smoothies with the brand new @bekogb Vacuum Blender. It's a great bit of kit and I'm pleased to have added it to our kitchen. What of the green smoothie here though? I have to admit that I didn't fancy trying it, but am so glad I did! Find out more about the blender and recipes via the link in my bio. #EatLikeAPro#ad
“Papi, warum heisst der Laden Apfelladen? Ich sehe keine Äpfel.”
“Guck mal ganz genau hin, auf der Rückseite von diesem Mac zum Beispiel, da ist ein angebissener Apfel.”
“Iiiih, warum verkaufen die denn angebissene Äpfel?“
“Weil die Menschen angebissene Äpfel kaufen wollen. Viele Menschen können nicht ohne sie leben.“
“Aber angebissene Äpfel haben doch kaum einen Wert, die kannst du vielleicht noch einem Pferd anbieten.”
“Oh, diese angebissenen Äpfel sind extrem teuer. Die kosten mehr als sie Wert sind.”
“Da ist doch etwas faul, Papi.”
“Das ist die freie Marktwirtschaft. Apple, so heißt das Apfelgeschäft, hat ein gutes Design.”
“Ein normaler Apfel hat auch ein gutes Design, kostet aber nicht so viel wie dieser angebissene.”
“Ein normaler Apfel wurde auch nicht von Steve Jobs entwickelt.”
“Aber von Gott.”
“Ist Steve Jobs mehr wert als Gott?”
“Öhm, gute Frage. Ich glaube … Also, es gibt viele Menschen, die glauben mehr an Apple als an Gott, die beten ihren Apple sogar an.”
“Und du, Papa?”
“Ich will mir eine Schutzhülle fürs Smartphone und Panzerglas fürs Display kaufen, damit das Handy sicher ist.”
“Papi, wenn ich’s runter werfe und ein Stück abbricht, dann ist es doch wie ein angebissener Apfel, nicht mehr ganz, also mehr wert. Hab ich das mit der Marktwirtschaft richtig verstanden?”
Vielleicht sollte ich wieder #android umsteigen, dann spare ich mir diese Diskussionen. 😉🙏🙈🤪📱
💻Ich brauche einen neuen Mac für unterwegs. Welchen würdest du mir empfehlen? 🖥

When you suddenly think you're a gangsta because your Nanny @handknitsandgifts knitted you an awesome new camouflage jacket, and you're totally rocking it around the mean streets of Cheltenham... 😳😉😂😂😍
It has been another long and restless night for Desire and Bernadette. Desire has been moving constantly between the bed and the chair as he is not allowed to sleep on his side, to avoid pressure on his eyes.
As they wait for the doctor, Rosi asked Desire what he is looking forward to doing when he gets home. “Playing football, it’s my passion”, he replied. He has not been able to kick a ball around with his friends or children for years.
Keep Desire in your prayers as he waits for Dr Nkumbe to arrive to remove his bandages.

Even though we live in Melbourne, we don't get into the city very often. It was so nice catching the train and walking from Flinders Street Station along StKilda rd to NGV and along the Yarra River. You forget how beautiful it is!! What is your favourite part of Melbourne? And yes that balloon survived the whole way home!
