Heading back home

We headed back home today, for what seemed originally like a mammoth drive, but now the more I do it, actually seems surprisingly easy. It’s always an early start up on the farm, so with everything packed, we left just about 9.30am. Just 40 minutes into Coona and we stopped for a walk and some ...

Kids everywhere

Pretty quiet day again today. We didn’t leave the main farm area, but instead we spent a large part of the day over at Tom and Kylie’s place, where Will and Alex played with Millie and Emma for a while, I played a little Wii gaming (first time in a little while), and we just ...

Easy Days

Just a real relaxation day today. Went into Coona to see the Sunday markets. Somehow I take a little money out intending it to last until we go home, but instead spend most of it this morning. It was on presents for everyone else of course, and various food. Spent some time in the park ...

It’s Christmas Day, in a way

We’re having Christmas early this year, or at least Christmas 1. That’s why we’re here, and it was quite the thing to have a big Christmas lunch with family, and present giving with five little kids. Will got a cool Cars laptop thing that I would have got him next month otherwise — he’s playing ...

We’re going on a little holiday

Day off work today, and we’re heading away for nearly a week. Off to Sallie’s parent’s place in the country, for an extended family get together, basically for an early Christmas gathering. So that’s a day driving, three days of relaxing fun, then another day’s driving. Not too bad really. The driving isn’t even too ...

It’s Christmas already… in some places

Since we moved, I now walk through Blacktown Westpoint shops everyday going from home to the station and back. And so I see retail land every day, even though the shops are shut during most of the trips. And I’ve noticed that Christmas apparently starts in late October now. I don’t think it started this ...

And the moving begins…

Normal enough work day today, abbreviated a few things, wanted to leave at lunchtime, but didn’t leave until nearly 3.30pm. Typical… All for the cause of getting home and packing and moving… Everyone knows it’s tough work, especially with two kids around (for today only, they’ll be at the grandparents tomorrow and Saturday). We’ve borrowed ...

Day (sort of) off

A funny thing happened today … all the computer systems at work are being replaced, and it suddenly became apparent that no one was getting anything done there today. So no one went there. And once I checked at home, it was clear that no email from work was available, so little could be done ...

The night before the day off

June long weekend time, when us Aussies get a holiday Monday that apparently relates to the Queen’s birthday even though it’s not even close to her birthday. Eh … if we became a Republic we’d just find another reason for the same holiday of course. But I love the Sunday night on these weekends. The ...

Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all, especially to the mothers, of course, and especially to my mother, who’s much of the reason I’m here, and to my wife, who’s much of the reason I continue to be here 🙂 And Will and Alex appreciate their mother more than anyone, naturally.
