My favourite music of last year and this year…

My favourite music of last year and this year...
For most of the second half of last year I really only listened to two bands (outside of general radio listening). Two bands that have been around for most of this century really, but they both put out a new album in the last quarter of last year. That’s a start for what I like ...

Happy new year… in the broadest sense

Happy new year... in the broadest sense
It shouldn’t be controversial saying happy new year on January 1, and for most of us it is a happy new year, a time to start refresh, to think about new projects or renewed efforts on existing projects. But you just have to read the news and see how much of the country is on ...

2019 is done 1

2019 is done
As the country seems to be literally burning, the year comes to an end. It’s easy to say the world has been a garbage fire for much of this year, but it’s not all like that. I’ve done plenty, my family has done plenty and there is much more to be done in the next ...

Proof of life at the half-year mark

Proof of life at the half-year mark
It is the half year mark, and despite meagre offerings here, I really have done a lot with myself this year. Personally, and creatively, I have written 70,000 words in the best part of about four months (February to May) with is the most sustained length of writing I’ve done in far too long. But ...

2018 and 2019 and wow…

2018 and 2019 and wow...
So you know I really have had a pretty decent year. Some really good things happened — like going to Canberra twice as part of the Hardcopy 2018 program, to a family trip to Bathurst where we went to the National Motor Racing Museum among other things, to watching Alex graduate primary school and win ...

Happy birthday to me…!

Happy birthday to me...!
Another birthday, another day… quiet but nice. My boys are so good to me… constant “happy birthday’s” all morning, and afternoon, and night 🙂 Got to do some work at home for a couple of hours… totally legit stuff configuring iPads when they can’t be done at school. Let myself make a birthday lunch: Homemade ...

Testing something

I’m moving my website to a new host… it’s a long story, but this is just a test. UPDATE: A successful test it would seem… my hosting is now transferred to a new site and my email forwarding works much better than it used to be… quietly beaming at my technical success… Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like ...

I am now the father of a teenager… or Happy Birthday Will! 1

I am now the father of a teenager... or Happy Birthday Will!
Well that’ about all there is for it now… I’mn the father of a teenager. But I couldn’t be happier. Happy birthday Will, it’s so great to see you here 🙂 He’s had a quiet day today, which is how he likes it really, with his new Jim Henson book (the boy loves big colour ...

Big week and big milestones

Big week and big milestones
So it’s five weeks into 2017 and all I’ve done so far is work. No harm in that of course, five full weeks at the shop (except when I was sick that is around Australia Day) where the work was rarely particularly exciting, but at least it was there and it was solid and paid ...

Christmas time!

Christmas time!
It really is the season… despite the 40 degree weekend weather, the boys made sure we put this up… They did nearly all the work so it’s good to see them enjoy it 🙂 And I’ve almost never seen them all together in a pic so well! Bring on the season… Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...
