Christmas cheer

After truly hideous weather yesterday, we woke up today and it was warm, sunny and only got better during the rest of the day. Really nice Christmas this year, with Will more exciited than ever before about the whole event, and we certainly made sure all wishes were fulfilled. Will only wanted one thing this ...

So nice to have a quiet weekend

Well half of one, at least. You usually do so much at this time of year that it’s  good to have just one day that is quiet and relaxing. Managed to do as I pleased for most of the day, though did do the grocery shopping with Will at night. Always fun, because Will loves ...

The season for parties

A week from Christmas, and naturally there are parties everywhere. I went to my work’s Christmas party yesterday afternoon, and that was a fine occcasion. Can’t remember the name of the restaurant, but it was right down on the water, next door to McMahon’s Point ferry wharf on Sydney Harbour. A gorgeours view, straight on ...

In which we go to the markets

Getting fruit and vegetables from Paddys Markets in Flemington is such a great idea. I recommend it to everyone. If only you just didn’t have to go there. It’s tough to drive into, the parking is always psycho, and the place it self — it’s packed full of people, busy, dangerous or feels like it… ...

Wonderful day

Really great day at home today. Was feeling a bit ill from last night, so was able to get up fairly late (9am, ha!), quiet morning, getting back into it. Actually got a good amount of writing done today, which is a change for the weekend, but by the end of the day, probably not ...

The little things

When you get to sleep in and your kids wake you by jumping on the bed… that sounds like it would be annoying but really it’s wonderfully funny. When Will decides that he should tell us how to eat by repeating what we tell him, and even feeding us for him… it sounds odd, but ...

Remy likes vegemite!

That is just one of the things I learned from Will today… he’s just full of conversation 🙂 It’s so good to see him engaging with food like this, possibly for the first time ever — Ratatouille is just another Pixar miracle, for a whole different reason. But who knew that Remy the rat liked ...

Friday ups and downs

Friday is good when you have a work lunch for nearly two hours. Friday isn’t so good when the trains home are all late, all miss-scheduled and the actual ride home takes well over an hour. But it looks like Summer is here, or at least a very nice spring. 25+ degrees today, apparently over ...

Moving on

The Olympics finished tonight… watched a little of the closing ceremony but missed some other parts. Watched Dexter instead, which of course I could have watched at any time via several methods, but it still seemed like the best choice anyway! Had lunch for Dad’s birthday today. Always a nice occasion down at West Ryde ...

Too much sport is about usual right now

The Olympics started last night … and I watched the opening ceremony, of course. And then today, I watched a few things, the Men’s Cycling Road Race mainly, but also a little swimming and whatever else was on. We were telling ourselves a few days ago we wouldn’t watch much, but naturally we are already. ...
