Two Birthday Boys

They may no longer be small, or boys for that matter. But here are the two offspring in a classic pose to celebrate their birthdays. One happened last week and the other is a couple of days away. Happy Birthday not so small offspring.

Sweet, Sweet Coffee

Having recently returned from the UK I was delighted to be re-acquainted with my coffee machine.

The combination of decent beans, decent machine, and a half competent barista was music to my taste buds.

Del Amitri on stage at the Enmore Theatre

For only the second time I was lucky enough to see Del Amitri live last night. They were spectacular. Although at my current rate I will see them again in my 80s.

Looking at a Lake

Come and look at a lake they said. It’s blue they said. It’s a gentle 5km walk they said.

Except the lake wasn’t blue, it was 5km each way, and the flies were worse than yesterday. Although we did get to skip across a river crossing. Tomorrow I’m going to stay in and watch the tennis.

Before the Rain

Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat at North Sydney Oval in a BBL match on 4th January

Before the rain came a cricket match broke out. The Sydney Sixers played the Brisbane Heat in the first BBL match at North Sydney Oval on the 4th of January, 2023. Sadly rain shortened the game to 13 overs a side and then caused it to be cancelled after the first innings. Although as JFGP said they were a pretty good 13 overs.

An Uneasy Peace

Only the cat knows why he likes to sit on a chair with Yoda. Just as long as he doesn’t cross the Jedi master and find himself floating a metre above the floor.
