Week of 1 May 2023 Coaldale walnuts open day This week, our friend Lizzie invited me and Lil to the open day at Coaldale Walnuts at Richmond. I’d vaguely heard of Coaldale but I didn’t know anything about it, or even where it was, until Sunday. I definitely didn’t...

Week 17/2023: Sunrise

19 for 2019: week 19 update

Week of 4 May I don’t have a lot to update this week. I went to work, had a training course and went to a wedding (yay!). I had a nice day walking around Launceston on Friday (more than 33,000 steps for the record) before I was struck down...

19 for 19: week 6 update

Week of 4 February 2019 This was a big week. Not only was it back to school week but it was Kramstable’s first week of high school. Yes, I am the parent of a high school student! Where has that time gone? It doesn’t seem like eight years ago...

P365 – Day 344 – lunar eclipse (10/12/2011)

After our visit to our friends’ place in the Huon, we made good on our plan to go tenting* in their back yard. It was a great idea, because it meant we didn’t have to rush home in time for dinner, so we could catch up properly, have a...

P365 – Day 245 – a day with the boy (2/09/2011)

Juniordwarf’s school had a student-free day and it was my turn to have a day off to spend with him. When he found out he’d be having the day with me, Juniordwarf planned out the ‘special acitivities’ that we’d be doing – making a Father’s Day card for Slabs...

P365 – Day 187 – disco fever!

Juniordwarf had been anticipating today for a couple of weeks. His school had a disco for all the kids after school – littlies at 3.15 and the big kids at 4.15. For $5 the kids got entry, pizza, a drink and a disco with a DJ – and a...

P365 – Day 92 – old photos

Part of Operation: Declutter involves taking all my old photos out of those evil self-adhesive albums and shoe boxes and putting them into some less damaging storage. It’s been quite a trip down memory lane reliving moments from my past. As I was going through the photos I was...
