I am up and down the streets in my neighbourhood many times a day: take twins Marc and Luc to school in the morning while dad takes Dubie to nursery; collect Luc for lunch; collect Dubie from nursery; take Luc back to school; collect  twins from school.

I love the victorian feel of the place and seeing Ads, my oldest, going to school proudly with his group of friends.

Little angel in the photo still needs her siesta. Older brother has nocturnal genes (grandmother’s side). Both go to sleep only when they crash at around 10pm to 11.30pm. Meanwhile twin brothers go to bed at decent time but during spring/summer wake up at 5.30am because “the sun is out”.

he made a collaboration with toddler sister Dubie, ‘Bright Soup’

and here is one of his first songs, ‘Ragged Son’
