Cat Photos

Because apparently every blog needs it’s fair share of cat pictures. This is the latest edition to our household soon after he arrived in October last year.


Sir Terry

Hopefully one day I’ll be able to write down what Sir Terry Pratchett’s books have meant to me. From Good Omens through the whole Discworld. Until then I’ll go with this quote;

“If you trust in yourself. . .
and believe in your dreams. . .
and follow your star. . .
you’ll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren’t so lazy.”

Just Kicking the Tires

I’m trying to write a new blog post but am a little stuck for inspiration. As usual for us techno types I have taken refuge in fiddling under the bonnet of the site. I refreshed all of the growing posts and photographs the other day and then I upgraded the underlying software to WordPress 4.0. Then I was on a roll so I installed the Jetpack plugin. This allows me to write posts in Markdown and that is what prompted this post. Not that you can tell but I’m writing this in a nice easy to use format that translates well to the web.

Now back to your regularly scheduled radio silence. At least until I can think of something to write about.

Two Growing Boys – October 2014

In a half-hearted attempt to catch up here is a picture of our subjects taken quite recently. As you can see JFGP has decided that since he lives by the beach he needs a surfer’s hair cut. On our trip to the UK in July most of the extended family disagreed and said that he needed a trim. MIGO, meanwhile, is laughing at my excellent joke.

Two Growing Boys – April 2014

I have been very remiss. Checking back through the archives I see that I haven’t posted a growing photograph since September last year. When I checked back through my photo library I have only taken one decent photo since that last post. That was in April 2014 and is shown above. I’m off to charge my camera batteries and try and do better in the future.
