I have been exceptionally slack with writing over the last few months, and to be honest, I don’t really have any reason not to be sitting at my laptop, tapping away at the keys.
Julian turned 13 last month! Such a huge milestone for him, and given his pre-teen attitude up until that point, nothing short of a miracle!! Just kidding. It was a pretty big deal though. He wanted to go out to dinner in a restaurant for his birthday, so 36 people ended up at the Hog’s Breath at Main Beach, including 3 of his mates for a stomach bursting meal. Of course, teenagers being teenagers, he and his mates ended up watching Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy while eating chips and finally crashing at about 1am . . . after which, Nigel & I thankfully crashed as well! A big thank you to my folks for taking our younger 3 for the night, and to all our friends and family – some of whom travelled many hours to get there – thank you so much for making Julian’s birthday something he will never forget.
