Off to Sydney again

Off to Sydney again for a few days at Manly and Royal Far West, then at Epping and a Westmead visit. Long trip, so much mountain traffic!!! Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

And a good thing that week is over, next stop that term over!

Only four days work this week, but that was quite enough. Nothing went wrong per se at all, but it all just seemed so long and so tiring… And there’s still one more week left till end of term. Much longer this year, and end of term will mean another trip to Sydney. That should ...

Congratulations to Ita Buttrose — Australian of the Year

Cold Chisel said it 30 years ago: Ita Buttrose has done some excellent work for Alzheimer’s and related charities, and this is what the award mostly represents. But she’s also a media trailblazer, and that did make a difference. Generally, I prefer previously anonymous stars to win this, so the award gives them the publicity ...

Australia Eve

Which is what my son called it today. Which is kind of funny, but given that it is the night before Australia Day of course, I’m not surprised he picked up on that. I’m fairly conflicted about Australia Day. I’m not entirely against it, and do appreciate a national day, but I despise the bogan ...

Happy Mothers Day 2012

Happy Mothers Day 2012
Happy Mothers Day to all the Mums out there. They do a lot for sons and husbands and children all year round, so the least we can do is repay them whenever we can, but at least on one day 🙂 Made the all-day effort with pancakes in the morning (which is the standard Sunday ...

Happy Fathers’ Day!

Off to Sydney…

… For the first time since I moved away in early February. The whole family is going down there for just under a week, most for medical stuff for Will and Alex, but also the break and the shopping will be good. We’re actually staying at Ronald McDonald House, which sounds serious, but is really ...

Merry Christmas!

As the day draws to a close, it’s always nice to reflect on Christmas for the year. Been a crazy busy time this year, largely the reason I haven’t posted much here for a while. (Though I will do my classic cheat and run with a little back-fill posting to fill in some gaps). We ...

Hitting the road

Turns out we didn’t actually get out of Sydney until 3pm! A ute to return in the morning, the hotel to pack up and two cars to pack, then a visit to the hospital, just to see/farewell/wish a merry Christmas to many of our long term family doctors, though we’re seeing a lot of them ...
