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, ...

Not well at all today

Woke up this morning feeling rotten, was sick, went back to bed, was sick again, had a shower and a coffee, was sick again, so went back to bed and slept until the late afternoon. And that’s the story of the day unfortunately. Literally nothing happened or got done. I eventually ate something tonight and ...

Holiday nearly over … no …

Quiet enough day today, with that sinking feeling coming over me that the holiday is nearly over. I know it’s not really that bad (especially with just a week left of the current job), but it can’t help but feeling a bit blah anyway. Backend-wise, the blog is becoming seriously annoying right now. I thought ...

Holidays end … but just the beginning?

Had to head back to Sydney today … always sad to go, but there’s a few more days of break left to relax, and there’s a happy realisation that Nelson Bay isn’t that far away anyway. We’re already aiming to coming back here late next month, with the appealing realisation that Anzac Day is on ...

Photo stop without the photo …

More fun in the sun today, with the weather coming good in the morning again, so we headed to Dutchies again. It was basically empty, and while it’s kind of constantly surprising even though we’re here completely out of holiday time, it’s still odd to see. After a while it became more clear why not ...

Why I like holidays now …

This is why I like holidays now … getting away from work, from commuting, from not being with the family. Truthfully, the reverse can be a little tiring of course, but being able to spend all your time with your kids and not actually having to worry about anything else just distills the good bits ...

Fog, holidays and pondering the future

What a day … the strangest fog first thing in the morning. Tom and his family had to go home early, so everyone ended up at the crack of dawn after Millie got up at 5am! The fog was really heavy, and it didn’t look like we’d do anything much, but by lunch time it ...

Being a kid again

An overcast day today, but with a house full of kids we went to the beach anyway. The little one, Dutchies — a perfect kids beach really. And while the water was so-so, it was a great morning anyway. Seeing the four of them, with a collective age of 10 (that’s 4,3,2 and 1) probably ...

Holidays and fan favourites

Headed up to Nelson Bay early this afternoon, to spend nearly a week up at the family house. For the Easter weekend Sallie’s brother Tom and his family will stay with us, which will be a good chance for Will and Alex to spend time with their cousins Millie and Emma — something they don’t ...

Amusements and weirdness

Was reminded today in this article about one of my earliest exposures to computers as a kid. We had a BBC Micro when I was in about year 4 or 5 of primary schoold (1984-5). And the game I remember the most was Granny’s Garden. Which you can play online apparently now. It was an ...
