'Foodie', mashing veggies and money men.

For those of you who live overseas or have no access to television, radio or newspapers – last weekend was the grand final. For many Australian’s this is simply the pinnacle of sporting excitement for the year with some travelling across the country and decorating their houses in team colours. Neither of my parents were […]

War, Iraq, American Politics and why do I care? (ok, it's a rant)

The War – You’d think with the mess Australian politics is, I wouldn’t have time to get upset about American politics.. but I am getting upset. Like most people I was appalled by both the American and Australian governments in recent years – going to war with countries that pose no threat to us, fabricating […]

My first Father's Day

My first Fathers Day Yesterday was my first father’s day! It started off with the two beautiful ladies in my life coming in with breakfast in bed for me after a luxurious sleep in (past 9am!!). I also got a great book for reading to Zoe. We went to see my dad and my grandmother […]

Missing martial arts

It’s been a long time since I did any martial arts training and I have really started to miss it. I used to train with Craig Guest but his St. Kilda dojo closed and he only trains in Preston. These days ‘free time’ is a precious thing indeed and driving to Preston and back isn’t […]

The joy of uninterrupted sleep, Olympics – Meh!

Last night Zoe slept from 10:45pm until nearly 6am in the morning. I was walking around the lounge room in the morning experiencing a strange sensation – I could see across the room, my eyes didn’t feel like they had sand inthem and I could remember what day it was, then I realised – THIS […]

Several months have passed since I last blogged.

I have met some of Vicki’s friends from the local mother’s group and their little baby girls. ALL girls in fact! The other day I took the day off work and the mothers group came around to our house. It looked like there was a pram sale going on and I spent the day wandering […]

Gary Clarke

Vicki’s father – Gary Clarke – passed away on Sunday the 15th of June, with his family at his side. It has been a sad time for the family and friends of Gary, but from what I can tell Gary didn’t spend much time sad, so I guess we should concentrate on the fun times […]

Life after Zoe…

Much like her prominence on my homepage… Zoe has become a major part of our lives now and along with the new family member come a whole bunch of skills that you never even thought about before a baby came along. I now find myself able to figure out if Zoe is really waking up […]

It's a girl!!!

Our baby came a bit sooner than we expected. On Vicki’s first day of work we went in for a check up and they recommended that we have our baby two days later – so it was all action stations to get everything ready and mentally prepare ourselves for the baby. Baby Zoe arrived on […]

Now hear this!

Vicki and I are getting married and we have a baby due in March 08! I think I have told most of my friends by now but occasionally I mention the baby in passing and people ask me if I got a new car / computer…. not this time, this time it’s a live one […]
