Time to celebrate the whanau (a.k.a. The Purdettes) again (haven't done that in a while). In reverse chronological order:
DLG (a.k.a. Taylor Swift, a.k.a Jade) and William announced their engagement recently. Jade rang me early in her dating career with William with an 'OMG - I'm dating my father' so no problems there then. To be clear - William loves/obsesses over football and is a teacher.
Cheeky Face (a.k.a. Daisy Ridley, a.k.a. Fanfa, a.k.a. Samantha) has moved to Los Angeles from San Francisco to work on The Goldbergs TV show. It's a new adventure and that's sometimes scary but trust the maple leaf, always.
Mr and Mrs Adam and Ashleigh Purdy are in Melbourne going through all the crunchy and the smooth life throws at us. In their case, a traffic accident was a temporary setback.
Keegan is also on a new adventure in China, working as an English language teacher and adapting to being a stranger in a strange land. To say nothing of the early starts! That maple leaf again.
I am extremely proud of them and so pleased SWMBO and I raised such a resilient, adventurous, intrepid, feel-the-fear-and-do-it-anyway bunch of individuals. Just saying.
Love and peace - Big Daddy
