Out my way there aren't many nice parks for the kids to play in. So when we got a note from the local council asking us what we would like built on a vacant block of land on our street we responded with a park. About 6 months later the council had finished it. A great new park with swings, a slide, a flying fox and heaps of room to run around. They also built some chairs for the parents to sit and relax and circled it with a concrete path for the kids to ride their bikes on.

It lasted about 5 months without any graffiti, that was until about a week ago when the "Bonnyrigg Boyz" thought it would be cool to tag all over it.




I was a teenager once, I get it, your bored on a Saturday night with nothing to do and no money so you hang around the streets looking for entertainment. Can I make a suggestion? Don't trash an area that gives kids enjoyment, try and remember the first time you had a swing or a slide in a playground.

P.S Anyone got any ideas on what will remove permanent marker from metal?

Hornet and the mud

So after all the rain we had over the weekend I thought I would get the car going in the backyard. I fitted some new tires so I had some real grip. It was heaps of fun and the dog got a real workout :) What did the car look like afterwards?


Non Transforming, Transformer

Isla's Christening

1964Last weekend Isla was christened. It was good to see all the family members together and civil to each other :) . The priest reminded me of the Rowan Atkinson character from Four Weddings and a Funeral. He was a bit bumbling! The rest of the photos are here.
