    Henry Says Thanks to Everyone

    Thanks to everyone who came to Henry’s Welcome to the World Party. We’re so proud of the little tyke we had to show him off. In total over 40 people visited, said hello to him, ate our food, and left.

    We were happy for people just to show and say hello but everyone brought gifts. Henry made out like a bandit and we are completely overwhelmed by everyone’s generosity. Hopefully we can return the favour for you someday.

    So Much To Do!

    I’m back with a new look. Like it? Here’s my promise to you who read my ramblings.

    1. I’ll post every Friday at 10.00am AEST (that’s UTC+10:00 for you foreign types) without fail.
    2. I’ll try to keep some kind of balance between my various pre-occupations: historical fencing, languages, book and movie reviews and gaming.

    This may prove a little tricky in practice as I tend to be fascinated by one bright shiny object at a time to the exclusion of all others.

    Now, here is what has been occupying my time during the last few post-free weeks.

    Henry was born earlier […]

  • <p>As my time at the moment, and probably for a few weeks to come, is fully taken up with preparing for Kathi and my third baby – a little brother for Charlotte and Marianne – I’m going to take some time off from blogging until mid-January. My mind is entirely elsewhere.</p>

    Quality Over Quantity

    As my time at the moment, and probably for a few weeks to come, is fully taken up with preparing for Kathi and my third baby – a little brother for Charlotte and Marianne – I’m going to take some time off from blogging until mid-January. My mind is entirely elsewhere.

    You can expect an announcement when the little tyke is born but other than that I’m going to be keeping pretty much to myself and adjusting to my new familial situation.

    One of the golden rules of blogging is that it’s better to say nothing if you’ve nothing worthwhile […]

  • <p>If you’re not interested in very public exposure of the soul, look away now. To help you, here’s some pictures of bacon taped to a cat.</p>
<p>It’s been nearly a year since my daughters Charlotte and Marianne were born and died and I’m still living very much day-to-day. I have no plans for the future. I can’t even realistically imagine me in any kind of future and that’s largely what this post is about.</p>
<p>Why post publicly? Definitely not as a call for sympathy. Unless you’ve held you children in your arms as they die, you just don’t get it  […]</p>

    A Future Without My Girls

    If you’re not interested in very public exposure of the soul, look away now. To help you, here’s some pictures of bacon taped to a cat.

    It’s been nearly a year since my daughters Charlotte and Marianne were born and died and I’m still living very much day-to-day. I have no plans for the future. I can’t even realistically imagine me in any kind of future and that’s largely what this post is about.
