Declan was born in May. He is our all-star sports champion with an awesome natural runners talent. He does eat more than a fully-grown African elephant, but he sure burns it all off too. Oh, and I guess he can jump pretty good too

Toyota Xmas Party 2020

Toyota Xmas Party 2020

This year the Toyota Family Christmas party was held at Preston Peak Winery. At first, we thought that this wasn’t the most ideal choice of location for a family Christmas party. However as it turned out, it was quite a fun filled afternoon. The kids had a large jumping castle to bounce on. There were plenty of outdoor oversized games to play, like chess and naughts and crosses. The highlight of every family Christmas party is the arrival of Santa,…

It is a good feeling, although a little mixed at the moment, due to the current uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. However we have run the numbers and it works out that we will be about $500 a month better off, plus, we will…

Easter 2020

Easter 2020

As the self isolation restrictions continue to be enforced, we have been forced to spend more quality time together. While this is in most part a good thing, there have been some crazy confined-related outbursts. Overall everyone has handled the isolation and close quarters quite well. Fortunately I am still working and was looking forward to having a four day weekend. On Friday night we all ventured over to the side paddock with some camp chairs and sat around the…
