Happy Birthday to … Will!

Happy birthday to Will! Happy birthday to Will, happy birthday to Will! William James Robert Turner turns the big five today, and man, was it a good morning for all of us. He was awake early as usual, and as soon as I was ready, we had the present opening. There were many cries of ...

Present buying and working room

I tried to buy Will another birthday present today, when we were out shopping at Rouse Hill. A Monsters vs Aliens storybook. It nearly worked too, but when he caught sight of it he nearly blew a fuse in his attempts to get it immediately. We had to hide it and deny everything… that boy ...

It rained all day

So we didn’t do a huge amount, surprisingly. But we did go to a meeting about Alex’s “issues”, which was still intimidating, but content-wise it ended up not being as bad as I thought. We went grocery shopping, which as an all-family outing is rare, so not without fun. We even found green Chick Hicks ...

Finding Flo and other nice behaviour

Had a real family weekend this time (no surprises there), with the only real outing being yesterday, when we went into Parramatta to see their new/old Farmer’s Markets. As usual for us we didn’t make it until after noon, which left them kind of quiet, but still some good stuff. Had a good restaurant lunch ...

Oddly busy

I actually felt like I achieved a lot at work today, just for a change. Got in at a fair time, worked hard, had only a small break but didn’t leave the office (not that I should usually do that), but then left at a great time, got some DVDs and got home by 6.30pm, ...

Happily easily pleased

Will is really taken with Cars at the moment — the most recent Pixar movie we own. He particularly likes the very end credits, where the injokes go as far as having Car versions of all the Pixar movies, with many jokes about voices and so on. It’s funny stuff, and I like that he ...

Toys for big kids …

While it’s undoubtedly childish, it’s also incredibly fun … a guy in the US has started making custom weapons for Lego figures. Everything from world war 2 weapons to pulse rifles from Aliens and everything fictional and real in-between. Check out the pics at the Brickarms site or a Gizmodo interview with the creator. It’s ...

Google brings back the youthful fun

Had to smile at the Google home page today — brought back a lot of childhood memories, and some more recent ones as well: Apparently it’s the 50th anniversary of the creation of Lego, probably my favourite childhood toy (and something increasingly popular among adults, so I keep wanting to try some again :)) Of ...
