Weekend wonders

Rained a lot today, so we didn’t go out much, but we enjoyed the day just the same. Doing some packing now, which is necessary, but annoying already. Can’t believe we have to move again after only a year, but it’s a done deal. Both Will and Alex just seem to be more animated and ...

Not keeping up

There’s a lot of things I could be writing about here now. The ridiculous spectacle of the Republican convention for one, or the even more ridiculous way the media is reacting to their VP candidate. But it just doesn’t seem worth the time, especially giving them my space, and time. Will came home today, which ...

Personal time clocks

It’s funny how things work at the moment… with Will still in hospital, Sallie still there with him, and me shuffling around between hospital and home, and then going back to work tomorrow, it all makes things right out of whack. I mean, of course Will easily has it worst of everyone, and Sallie isn’t ...

Well at least I didn’t have to go to work

Day off today and tomorrow, which in itself would be good, but this time around came about because Will’s in hospital… which is of course bad. Nothing really unusual really — he’s there to have his bladder area reworked to make things better for him. It’s too complicated to put it all down here, but ...

The highs and lows of Wall-E 2

It was a big day today as I took Will to his first ever big screen movie. We went to see a special charity screening of Wall-E, the new Pixar movie. And before you take the title above the wrong way, the movie was great. Warm, funny, clever and original, it was brilliant in the ...

Moving on

The Olympics finished tonight… watched a little of the closing ceremony but missed some other parts. Watched Dexter instead, which of course I could have watched at any time via several methods, but it still seemed like the best choice anyway! Had lunch for Dad’s birthday today. Always a nice occasion down at West Ryde ...

The Pixar method for … everything

The cutest thing I saw today was after convincing Will to have some of what we were eating for dinner (fried rice with beef and vegetables), that he decided he would as long as we got his Finding Nemo cutlery out, he’d give it a try. Then, in an attempt to eat only the rice, ...

Listen to that coughing

At least it’s finally not coming from me of course. I’m mostly well (though I seem to get a good cough at morning and late at night when it’s cold), and Alex is good, but Will is coughing really badly (among other things), and Sallie might just have what I had. This stuff just goes ...

Too much sport is about usual right now

The Olympics started last night … and I watched the opening ceremony, of course. And then today, I watched a few things, the Men’s Cycling Road Race mainly, but also a little swimming and whatever else was on. We were telling ourselves a few days ago we wouldn’t watch much, but naturally we are already. ...

Definitely worse

How shall I put it … absolutely shocking. I was more or less ok in the day, or at least no worse, as we all went over to Westmead Children’s Hospital to take Will to a series of appointments. Occupational Therapist Belinda was fun as always, but the afternoon appointments were pretty tough on Will, ...
