Life's a Beach!


My lovely wife and I spent the weekend at Noosa to celebrate our 4-year anniversary. (Is it only 4 years? Is it 4 years already? In some ways it seems as if we just got married yesterday, and in other ways it seems like we've been married forever....in any case, I really like it!).


Noosa is a gorgeous place - the beaches are fantastic, there are lots of upscale (read: expensive) shops & restaurants & bars, and the atmosphere is very laid back & the people are very friendly, and it was Yoyo's first real visit to the beach. We had such a great time:


  • Watching Yoyo run bravely up to the edge of the surf, and run straight back to the sand when the waves rolled in, over & over again....
  • Building sandcastles with my wife and baby girl at a tropical beach with hardly anyone else around....
  • Swimming in crystal clear, warm water in an ocean smooth as glass....
  • Stopping for ice cream two or three times a day....
  • Eating dinner at real restaurants as a family/ ordering off the childrens' menu (instead of pulling jars of stuff out of my lovely wife's purse for the baby)....
  • Drinking Veuve...
  • Watching my hot, hot wife walking out of the ocean with her hair thrown back & water glistening off of ('nuff said)....

Our anniversary isn't really until this Thursday, but the girls will be flying down to Sydney on Thursday morning, as our house will be full of drunken guys for most of the week. That's right - the cricket is on! Whoo hoo!

Thanks, honey - Happy Anniversary!!!

Two Weeks into Movember:



I think the mo' makes me look angry....

Get Mo-ing!


Along with my new best pal Afe, and a few other blokes, I have made a commitment to grow a mo for Movember.

It's for a good cause, and let's face it - moustaches are pretty cool (even though my lovely wife thinks I'm looking a bit Freddie Mercury-ish so far...).

The key male health causes for Movember 2006 are:

Prostate Cancer in partnership with the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (http://www.prostate.org.au/) because every year in Australia 2,700 men die of prostate cancer - more than the number of women who die from breast cancer.

Male Depression in partnership with Beyond Blue (http://www.beyondblue.org.au/) because one in six men suffer from depression at any given time but most don't seek help.

Plus, we are all going to look so retro-cool when all the boys come up to Brisbane for the Ashes test later this month....
