Birthday boy

Will turned four today, and he had a pretty good day, even though he’s still not that well. Woke him up early for kindergarten this morning, the weather was hideous again, but we high-tailed it through the rain when I dropped him off at kindy and he seemed happy enough. Apparently the day was good ...

Would you call it Writer’s Block?

I am a writer who doesn’t seem to write. Or at least, I write anything BUT what I really need to write. I write news stories and plenty of reports at the day job. I write in this blog, quite regularly now. And I write various other correspondence and other things as well. But recently, ...

Wests win a game … that’s all that needs to be said

Quieter day … Will’s sick again, but we went over to the parents for lunch. It’s Will’s birthday on Wednesday, so he got some presents there today, but he just wasn’t that into it. But Wests won, and that made it all good 🙂 After three straight losses and a season’s worth of injuries already, ...

DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist sell hard with The Hard Sell 1

Another late one tonight, but a good one. Went into town to the Big Top at Luna Park for the first time, to see DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist do their 45s only “Hard Sell” DJ show. I bought tickets only a couple of days ago, even though my brother bought them about three months ...

Another long day

Ha ha … and one day again I’ll think more about what should actually go in here. I’ve managed to blog successfully, and by that I mean every day, for nearly four months now. Not much I know, but a lot regularly for me. Got paid already, which always helps. Am going to a DJ ...

Gingery goodness

Made ginger beer again tonight — from about 10.30pm till midnight. An odd time to do it, but it’s a process that’s getting easier. With our perfected recipe, cleaning gear, and especially the magnificent Italian mechanical hand capper to cap the glass bottles, the whole process is getting quicker and quicker. And it’s making a ...

That sinking feeling …

… when you just know you’re getting sick and don’t quite know what to do to stop it. That’s what is happening to me right now. Went out shopping this afternoon, got caught in a fairly sudden downpour right when we’re going to the bus. Rest of the day’s indoors and ok, until we’re heading ...

Wii-tastic

Well, we didn’t spend all day messing with the Wii, even though it kind of felt like it … Having fun with the two startup games, Sallie and I playing together and separately in a way we haven’t with games for years now. Will and Alex both find it amusing but don’t quite get it ...

Wii Day

Finally the family has a new game console, for the first time in eight years. And it’s my first ever Nintendo system. Finally, we have a Nintendo Wii in the house. So naturally, not much else to say here because we played Wii all night. I didn’t get home until later because I was out ...

Recovery and anticipation

Seem a lot better than yesterday now, but not the greatest. Did some shopping … not helped by my lack of leaving money, apparently a final gift from CNET is delaying that for who knows how long. Finally mowed (most) of the back lawn. Was almost dark then, but it’s always such a relaxing job, ...
