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
And I found some colour in Kingston
With my girls at George Michael tribute Karaoke night
Last day of school holidays fun at Dickson Aquatic Centre
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
My cousin Angus’s New Year’s Eve wedding by the harbour. He married the lovely Alex (a different Alex)
Spider Boy and I tore it up at the Canberra show
Our last day in Sydney in January. One of my favourite beaches in the world, Neilsen Park beach in Sydney’s east.
A February visit from Señorita Margarita and it was back to the pool
A February visit from my Dad. I took him to Rodney’s at Pialligo so he could roam free in his natural habit.
However sitting on the sheep’s back was NOT such a good way of dealing with the heat
Back in Canberra, we dealt with the heat at Civic pool
