It’s been a long time between posts here at The Alexcellent Life. The last post I wrote was about George Michael’s death while I was on a Sydney visit over Christmas/New Year.
January was busy. We had a beautiful wedding to go to, and raced around visiting family and friends and a couple of beaches because, Sydney in January.
I had many post ideas to write in the last quarter of 2016, but they remained in my head. Time constraints, as well as not having a clear direction for this blog, contributed to the lack of actual posts. As did my finally working out how to hook up Netflix. I binged on episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend every night.
But now that that’s over, I’m clearer now about what I want this blog to be. So here’s to my renewed focus!
While the changes to The Alexcellent Life are brewing, here’s a little retrospective of just some of what I didn’t blog about…
Spider Boy and friend living La Dolce Vita in Sydney’s Centennial Park in January
Back in Canberra, we dealt with the heat at Civic pool
My Australia Day pav. A lot better than my Christmas Day pav fail. This one was better thanks to me buying the base from a supermarket
With my girls at George Michael tribute Karaoke night
And I found some colour in Kingston
My cousin Angus’s New Year’s Eve wedding by the harbour. He married the lovely Alex (a different Alex)
Our last day in Sydney in January. One of my favourite beaches in the world, Neilsen Park beach in Sydney’s east.
Spider Boy and I tore it up at the Canberra show
Last day of school holidays fun at Dickson Aquatic Centre
However sitting on the sheep’s back was NOT such a good way of dealing with the heat
A February visit from my Dad. I took him to Rodney’s at Pialligo so he could roam free in his natural habit.
A February visit from Señorita Margarita and it was back to the pool
