This weekend’s move went pretty well, sure we had to pull the massive couch up 3 stories on the outside with ropes because it wouldn’t fit through the door and the slate/concrete/hardwood cabinet almost killed us getting up the stairs… but all in all it wasn’t too bad.
I must admit she is a little full though, I didn’t think we had much stuff. But when we moved into the house we didn’t have a baby… now I’m starting to think our house in Corowa might not be big enough for long.
I’ve had an awesome couple of days catching up with Max after 3 weeks back in Corowa for work. It’s amazing how much he has changed in that time, he’s his own man now, ordering you around and cracking the shits if you’re not doing what he wants.
Fortunately he’s balanced out all this new attitude with some extra affection, he now gives great hugs with a little pat on the back with his little hands.
He had a great time helping Thomas do the lawns yesterday.
We had a really nice fun day today, early morning fry up, then I re-screwed down the back deck ready for Thomas to start painting tomorrow. Meanwhile Zett and Max broke out the paints for some finger painting.
After Max’s nap we headed to Irene mall for a late lunch and to get Max some Duplo wheels. They’ve got a large wet area in between the main restaurants with a series of water squirters where the kids all go crazy. We’d packed some spare clothes for Max so he could get into it, he was pretty tentative but eventually got into it.
All in all it was an awesome little Sunday.
There’s some more blog catch-up to got, here’s the first of a series on Kilimanjaro.
She’s backed up with heaps of trips from last year, so Zett and I have bitten the bullet and got our arses into gear, get ready for the PURGE!
We’ve back dated most of them so non RSS readers will miss them if we don’t put a new post pointer to the new old stuff (I presume the RSS feed will pick up new old posts… not sure).
We’ll start it off with the last two posts from our big Botswana trip from last year…. Victoria Falls and the awesome elephant spot at Elephant Sands.
Kean is one big strong baby, he’s way different when you pick him up how Max was at the same age, so chunky. He has started learning to crawl, one of positions he ends up in while trying is a fully extended pushup!
Some time in the wee hours of this morning Dirchie Kart received the last few community votes it needed to pass peer review and went live on the XBox Live Indie Game Marketplace.
This milestone is not signifies the completion the project and a lot of hard work, but also ticks off another personal goal.
Back when I finished Rhys Quest/Dispell I set myself the goal of getting a game published up on the XBox, at the time XNA was only a rumour so I had no idea how I might achieve that goal. Fortunately for me the tools available to me and our direction at work coincided with Microsoft’s direction with XNA and it all came together.
The big question now is where to go from here?
Max has like most kids (I think), a thing for pushing around trolleys and karts, anything with wheels really. He got a plastic lawn mower to practice with for Xmas, it was funny to see him wobbling around in the wind out on the stoop.
He later on found something even more fun to push around, his cuz in the walking ring.
Kean is a very contented man-child, happy play away on his mat most of the time letting out the occasional yelp, just to let you know he’s still there… he also pulls some funny faces.
