My friends are super cool

tagedo

I caught up with a bunch of friends on Sunday. For breakfast, I reunited with my ol’ university flatmate Kolitha.  He lives in Papa New Guinea nowadays but his work occasionally brings him through Brisbane.  I caught up with him and his special lady for breakfast.  It was a good revisiting old memories (I can’t believe uni was ten years ...

Turning 30

tagedo

For someone who gets a bit self conscious about birthdays, I’ve ended up having a pretty extravagant and prolonged 30th birthday celebration spanning three weekends.  On the weekend of my actual birthday, Jen secretly arranged tickets for the two of us to fly to Melbourne.  I was planning on spendying my 30th birthday working a regular day in the office.  ...

Happy Birthday To Me

I had a rather unusually protracted birthday celebration this year as it co-incided with my recent holiday with all the relatives in town.  So Jen and I celebrated a week early, then we celebrated with the family on the actual day and then a few weeks later I caught up with my friends for a drink.  Lastly, for some strange ...

Jen decided to make a ratatouille and cous cous dish and she ...

The Week of Too Busy To Blog

I’ve had a hell of a busy week.  It’s been entirely awesome but I’ve had no time to blog until now. On Wednesday night I went to State of Origin Game 3.  It was the first Origin game I’ve attended and I went with Matt, a relative who’s visiting from Scotland.  I grew up watching Origin and always enjoyed the ...

New video camera, old video tapes

Jen gave me an early birthday present this year:  an HD video camera.  She’s pretty awesome like that. It must drive her nuts because I only bought a video camera three years ago and I barely used it.  All the videos I’ve taken over the last couple of years have been using the video recording function on my digital camera.  ...
