Happy Mother’s Day! 1

Hi Mum, Happy Mother’s Day, from your son Stephen, and your grandsons Will, Alex and Lachie. I know it must be a little odd now that we’re so far away, so here are some videos, some from the last couple of weeks, some from just yesterday and today, so you can see how we all ...

Lachlan Turner born today 1

Lachlan Turner born today
My third son was born today… Lachlan Turner (middle names not decided yet) was born at 12.18pm on June 24, which just happens to also be my wedding anniversary 🙂 Yes, the most amazing gift ever, I know, but now we get to share it every year with him as well, and I know who ...

Party allocations

The cutest thing tonight… Sallie made a whole lot of cupcakes for Will to take to kindy tomorrow… it’s his birthday the next day so he’ll have a little birthday thing at kindy before. You bring your own cakes of course, and Will’s were nearly ready. I thought he might want to grab one now, ...

Holiday activities

We decided we should do something over the weekend that was a real “family activity”, so we went out to Penrith to visit the Museum of Fire. A good day was had by all… I didn’t think it would be much of anything, but there was some good stuff, and Will and Alex had a ...

Good day

Family barbecue… we head to my parent’s place for a barbie, probably one of the last we’ll manage for the warmer season. It’s always a good day for the kids, where they get to run around a lot and generally have a good time. Or in Will’s case, demand to watch movies on a whole ...

Back off Delicious!

I don’t mind the fact that a lot of my blog posts recently (well, most, I admit it,) have been delicious links. I mean, it’s old school blogging really, links and commentary and all that. But I’ve let my proper blogging slide, for sure. So maybe I should turn delicious links off for a few ...

Reports of its death were…

Greatly exaggerated, it would appear. My phone, that is. I mentioned yesterday that Alex seemed to kill my phone by dunking heavily in water somewhere (possibly the toilet!) After pulling it apart and leaving it in as many pieces as possible to dry overnight, I put it back together and found that it did indeed ...

Trying…

As in difficult. It’s all good really, but sometimes small children can just drive you nuts. Alex is getting really frustrated with not being able to communicate with us properly… we want to try some more sign language just to help him out with that. And Alex seems to have killed my mobile phone, unbelievably ...

Anniversary

Just realised, that, give or take a few days, it’s been 10 years since I moved out of home and moved in with my girlfriend, who eventually became my wife. Ten years. Doesn’t seem like a long time, but it’s nearly a third of my life, and a hell of a good time 🙂 In ...

Karate Boy and Pixar Studios

Took Will to karate again today… he had fun, but I couldn’t really hide some disappointment as well… he didn’t try much, didn’t focus at all, didn’t follow anyone’s instructions. I know he’s only four, but we’re trying to get him to mature a bit… he’s supposed to start school next year, and he’s doing ...
