A long time between posts

Filed under: Uncategorized — nicksmyname @ 4:45 pm

Yikes it’s been a long time since I posted, and I know that there are some faithfuls who are still checking the site for updates regularly. Thanks for waiting!

It’s just been very busy around here since the arrival of Luke as you can imagine.

So anyway I’ve got a bunch of photos for you. If you watch my Flickr account you might have already seen some of them.

We had a great weekend away in Wollongong at Patrick’s mum’s place. Photo’s are here and here. It was a great weekend. Kai, Angus, Rory, their respective little brothers and their parents were all there.

Here’s Luke looking very grown up in Southerly’s super cool chair:

Luke in the happy seat!

We baptised Luke. It was a great day. It was at the local church and we had coffee and cake at the Presbytery afterwards. Luke behaved himself extremely well; managing to stay happy and awake for most of the ceremony and then falling asleep just as the party started afterwards. Photos are here.

Here’s Luke with the lovely cake that Nana brought along:

The other big event was that Mike and Renaye got married. It was a beautiful day. Renaye looked great. Mike brushed up well. Photos are here. Luke came along and behaved himself extremely well; getting almost as much attention as the wedding party.

Here’s the happy couple;

Last but not least, we had the annual Teresa House Dinner Dance. As usual we spent the previous months working up to it and wondering if it would ever end, but it all went according to plan and we had a brilliant night. The theme was Masquerade and people generally did a great job of dressing up. Brian was easily the best disguised, although he was looking a bit ragged by this stage. We had about 180 guests. As usual the dancing competition was hugely popular. Photos courtesy of Fiona are here.

Oh, and somewhere in between I made my mother-in-law very happy when the Catholic Weekly did an interview with me about Teresa House. It’s online here, sadly without a great picture they got of me with Karen, one of my favourite guests at the house.

That’s it for now. Promise to get more frequent again in the future!
