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.”

On Saturday we took the ankle biters to the concert hall at the Opera House to see the Sydney Symphony perform with one of our favourite ivory ticklers. Mr Folds and his ‘band’ did a great job of entertaining us and a wonderful time was had by all.
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.
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.
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.
If this wine was a person it would be able to drink itself.
I took this walking down West Esplanade this morning.
No MIGO, we can’t fit that in our luggage for the flight home.
