The boys, Christmas 2009

The boys, Christmas 2009
We haven’t had an official Santa shot for several years now, so with Lachlan’s first Christmas, it seemed like the right time: Will is overdoing the effort, Alex is cute but was completely unwilling to take his hand out of his mouth, and Lachlan was the best behaved at all. Works for us 🙂 Share ...

Halloweenies…

Halloweenies...
For many years now, we’ve always made ourselves slightly prepared for Halloween, not that keeping some chocolate in the fridge is hard for us or anything… but we’ve kept it in mind. And every year previously, we’ve just eaten it ourselves a week later, none the wiser. Until this year. Must be the neighbourhood, but ...

And as the year draws down…

Here I sit, at our family place in Nelson Bay, thankfully feeling better (but hardly perfect), and planning our night’s activities, and thinking about the year that was. Only about five hours left in the year, and it’s certainly been a varied one. Really don’t go for all that “year that was” stuff, so there’s ...

Possibly even worse today…

Do not want to go into details, but needless to say, not very well at all today either. Laid low most of the morning, went out for some lunch, which I thought was light, but apparently it was all wrong because it came right back a few hours later. So, more sleep, more panadol and ...

Of all times to…

Come down with a cold or flu or something. The morning was good, with more beach action and some long walking, but in the afternoon I just slept, and slept. Absolutely poured rain at about 3pm, but after that I only got worse. Will not elaborate; this  is a time of year I’d much rather ...

Summer days…

Summer days...
When words don’t really do enough: And believe me, that was the best pose we could get 🙂 I mean, it’s not like you want to stop for pictures when you’re at the beach anyway… when you’re four or two, that is. Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

Boxing Day

There’s a lot of stories about what Boxing Day is supposed to be, but in my time it’s just a day of rest — relaxation, fun, family time. We’re at Nelson Bay now, and today we started really early. Will and Alex both act a little wacky at first; probably something about the different routine ...

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 ...

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 Christmas shop

Nice change of pace today, with Will and Alex being looked after by my parents for the day, so that Sallie and I could go shopping on our own time. Christmas shopping of course, almost entirely for the kids, of  course, so naturally they weren’t left out, even when they weren’t there. Not to bad ...
