Wests show some form

A nice lunch out today while I’m in Sydney, to Oliveto’s at Rhodes. Good Italian food combined with incredibly busy and large crowds, usually big Italian family gatherings. It’s always off putting when you arrive, bit it never hampers service or food quality. I had their Risotto special, with prawns, saffron and other assorted wonders. ...

Django Unchained review

Django Unchained review
So after a morning that consisted mostly of waiting for a doctor’s appointment — excellent result mind you! — I went into the city for a few things, and thought I might see a movie. Armed with an Event Cinemas voucher, I decided to go Gold Class, a “luxury service” that gave me comfortable lounges, ...

New things, returning things and ending things

Only a brief today since I’ve spent most of it driving to Sydney. But the biggest news today was I guess the new Pope, Francis, from Argentina, who I thought would be the first non-European Pope ever, but instead is actually the first in 1200 years. The things you learn… Most exciting news for me ...

Happy birthday to… me! 1

Happy birthday to... me!
Went to bed too late, woke up too late, but hey, today is my birthday 🙂 Not a lot said about it at home… due to our usual morning insanity, and I rolled up to work at the end of assembly… to discover I had missed a general announcement to the whole school! That’s okay, ...

NRL getting it right online

NRL getting it right online
Last night I signed up for NRL Live — and it feels like they’ve finally entered the 21st century. I wrote about this a couple of years ago now, wondering why we didn’t have this system already, and now finally we do! For the first time ever, I was able to — in the comfort ...

Tonight’s Q&A on Education

Well… that was an experience I’m still winding down from. Because of my complete lack of bedroom TV reception I watched the News 24 web stream, and realised halfway through that it was about 2-minutes behind the Twitter feed! No matter… there wasn’t much too it really. Not particularly substantial, really. Christopher Pyne was as ...

Batman and political bickering

A silly day of news, with UK police having someone brought in by Batman, followed by worldwide media obsession until the guy was unmasked by the end of the day. Imagine how Bruce Wayne would have fared with that attention? And really, showing how easy it is to provoke media obsession should probably get this ...

iPad baby!

Ben sees the rest of his family on iPads constantly, so it’s not surprising he’s intrigued as well… and, even a 1-year-old can work it out: Share this:TwitterFacebookEmailLike this:Like Loading...

End of a big week

End of a big week
Now that’s the end of a long, big week. It was never tough per se, but it was long, and busy, and tiring, and now that it’s over I just want to make sleep the highest priority! Got the Google Teacher application in, am seriously looking at one other job related thing, and loads of ...

How to feel exhausted

Just so tired today… too many late nights and projects to finish late. Got the Google Teacher application away today, and it feels like a good reason to take a few days off anything now (well at least anything but the normal stuff!) Problem is, even when any early night is called for, I find ...
