Robert, Sue and Charles

My middle brother Robert and his partner Sue had a son in August of 2000, making me an uncle for the first time.

My father made this wooden cot for him.

On the floor you can see a classic of Kiwi culture, the Buzzy Bee, a wooden toy on wheels whose wings rotate as you pull it along the ground.
