Second Child Syndrome

Posted by in Daily Life, Family & Friends

I wonder if it’s real? I don’t really think I suffer from it. But I do feel that my older brother was afforded more choices than the rest of us when we were kids. Not to say I ever felt left out. Our parent supported us in what ever we wanted to do, where we could afford it. And more importantly I always felt loved as a child. The image attached is from our local newspaper way back in 1979.

Big Brother Visits

Posted by in Daily Life, Family & Friends

After almost 5 years of David and I living in Melbourne we finally got a visit from my big brother Brian, his fiance Belinda and her son Rourke. Now the only family member not to visit is my little brother, Gregory. Brian’s visit has been pretty cool cause we’ve done a few things we hadn’t done previously including a trip to Old Melbourne Gaol, Collingwood Children’s Farm and Eureka Tower’s SkyDeck. On Friday we went to the Old Melbourne Gaol, the entry price of $20 for adults I think is…read more

Castlemaine Day Trip

Posted by in Daily Life, Family & Friends, Photography

Yesterday, David, SueZ and Kathryn all went on a little road trip to the town of Castlemaine Victoria. it was a great day of happy snapping, lens swapping and all round fun. Kathryn showed us what she is best at, working with people… her unabashed nature and her ability to connect with humans is something I hope rubs off on the rest of us. Kathryn was able to capture some great portraits of random people on the street. You can see Kathryn’s work over at her Red Bubble profile. Kathryn…read more

Happy Birthday Jacob

Posted by in Family & Friends

Today is the 11th birthday of our nephew Jacob. 11 seems so long ago for me, I guess because it is. From all reports Jake has had a great day, even if he did have to go to school. It has been almost a year since we last saw Jacob and by the sounds of him on the phone, he’s done a lot of growing in that time. There is talk Jody may make the trek down during te next New South Wales school holidays. It will be great to…read more

So Much Food, So Much Love

Posted by in Family & Friends

And Happy Birthday to SueZ. Last night we made the trek to Craigieburn to the house of Sue’s Mum to celebrate Sue’s birthday. And what a fabulous night it was. A giant table for a giant gaggle of fourteen people for whom Sue’s sister Lana and her mum had been preparing food for three days. There was so much food, soooooo much food. Risotto balls, stuffed capsicum, free-range pork and lamb, chicken noodle soup, sautee potatoes, roast pumpkin, lasagne, bread and what was affectionally called “Wog Bread”; kind of a…read more

Happy Birthday Mum

Posted by in Family & Friends

Dear Mum, I know I’m the slackest of all kids, moved away to another state and hardly ever call, but it doesn’t mean I don’t love you and miss you every day. I’d like to take this occassion, your birthday, to publicly thank you for everything you’ve ever given me. Far beyond the gift of life you have given me so much in this life. You have taught me to be the man I have become. To have compassion for those around me, to take humans as they are and…read more

Make Me a Supermodel

Posted by in Daily Life, Family & Friends, Photography

Make Me a Supermodel, originally uploaded by tyroga. This morning we headed into the city after having a somewhat unsuccessful breakfast at Creme in Altona, which resulted in David not having breakfast. First the eggs came out, and while poached, were rock hard, his bacon was burnt and his english muffin wasn’t toasted, some eggs Benedict that turned out to be. He complained and sent it back. It was replaced with nice bacon but near to raw eggs. Needless to say we left them at the table and went to…read more

Happy Birthday David

Posted by in Daily Life, Family & Friends

Today is David’s birthday, as the title would suggest, For me this is the 11th birthday I have had to share with him and I am both happy and greatful for the time he has spent with me. Hoping for many more years to come. We’re not super big on celebrating birthdays. Since leaving Sydney they have become very low-key affairs, even presents are often neglected. But not out of a non-desire to give, more so because we tend to buy what we really want when we want it rather…read more
