Goodbye Cotton Buds, It Has Been A Great Relationship.

July 26, 2012


This is a tub of humble, everyday cotton buds that sit in a nondescript see through plastic container. It resides in my bath drawer, which also houses my hair wax, aftershave and every essential manly bathroom gimmick. It’s also the same tub I’ve been refilling my cotton buds into and the same tub I’ve been […]

Choo! Choo! Let’s Detour (and freeze) At The Puffing Billy!

July 25, 2012


We took advantage of a sunny weekend and headed up to the Puffing Billy. I have lived in Melbourne for most parts of eight years now and have never visited this tourist trap, so I decided to be all touristy with the family. Thing is, we had planned on heading to Healesville Sanctuary the day […]

Happy (Belated) Birthday, Toby

July 24, 2012


Mr Bojangles – that’s his pet name – turns six this year. Michele and I have been slack and we actually forgot about it completely. As usual, it’s an annual cheeseburger treat. Three days too late! Levi is now old enough to understand the concept of birthdays and candles. Like all birthdays he’s been to, […]

Peanut’s Fortnightly Belly Show – Episode 5 (24 weeks pregnant)

July 23, 2012


Michele and I spend most parts of our evenings – after tucking Levi into bed – with our hands placed on Michele’s belly. Peanut has so far been far more active than Levi and the last fortnight has seen many ‘hi fives’ for Mummy and Daddy. Well, I’m guessing it’s Peanut’s hand. It could have […]

Walking To Mummy & Daddy & Standing & Crawling… (video)

July 22, 2012


Like all parents who have been capturing their children’s growth, development and magic moments on camera, Michele and I have amassed thousands of photos of Levi and several hundred video clips. Mr Moo isn’t even 30 months of age and he’s already a natural on the camera compared to his parents who have a combined […]

I spend a lot of my ‘free time’ at home staring at my laptop. So much so Levi has associated one end of the dining table as ‘Daddy Chair’. The Curious Mr Moo loves wandering over to me to check out what I’m doing. Most times I’m running multi-billion offshore operations and shipping my income […]

Peanut’s Room – Bye Bye Bachelor Space Part 2

July 11, 2012


Here’s a wedding casualty one may not expect while cleaning out the clutter and clearing out space for Peanut’s room. The flower bouquets so tenderly held by our Maid-of-Honour and Bridesmaids have found their way into the bin. Michele has been keeping them in a box since our wedding in 2009 but to be honest […]
