Winter has landed

It’s been a while since I last posted a status update, and with Winter well and truly upon us, there’s no time like the present!

Work has been OK, we had a major release in late April which went well, and then last week I spent time split out on another engagement in the Parliamentary triangle.  It was a change of pace, and I missed the far superior lunching options available in Fyshwick – although the scenery was much improved (despite the weather).

On the home front, it’s been a mixed story.  Everyone’s been reasonably healthy until recently with both boys and Toni and I coming don with assorted colds or colds like symptoms.  That hasn’t necessarily derailed our activities, and we ended up at the Botanic gardens last week for a stroll down in the majestic rainforest gully.


As it was Toni’s birthday recently, I agreed to take the boys for the day on a Sunday, and we ventured to the Arboretum for play time.


Jake climbed to the highest point all by himself several times, although an older girl had to help him down the large slide – he is only three years old, after all!

The weekend before last we hit up the Old Bus Depot for coffee beans and Damian had a chance to run the stall with his grandfather – shoppers were impressed.


Speaking of the boys – they continue to grow and grow.  Jake turned three in February, and Damian is now over a year and a half old.  Damian acts far more like a little boy than a toddler, and just keeps improving his skills.  Jake’s vocabulary is finally coming along, he is picking up new words and conventions at a great rate.  Hopefully this continues!


Finally, I took a swing at the new Cadbury Vegemite chocolate – not as terrible as it might appear, but a bit of an experience..


That’s all for now – another update next season Smile
