Raising little Westies, and life as parent of a special needs son

Yet another milestone


It’s a small thing, but it’s a thing, but I have now passed 500 “likes” here on this blog.

I will keep writing. My inspiration won’t always be great. I don’t always drop in quotes about the massive challenges we all face on a daily basis. I might not talk about the same thing every day. I will talk about the boring and mundane, along with the wondrous – to me, my wife, daughter or sons. I will talk about movies. I will talk about parenting, my kids, my pets, and my home, and I hope my wife!

I will also over the next year talk about how I am continuing my plan to relocate my family from Sydney to Canberra, what specifically I am looking for in a school, a location to live, and indeed a family home.

I hope you stay along for the ride, and chime in at any time with your comments or feedback.

      Sometime before 2014. From our section of Paradise, with it’s home invasions and home-made rocket launchers, distinct lack of neighbors of a similar cultural background to ourselves, fireworks at any night of the week, the biggest Fibro Mansion on the street…

      It’s a year and counting.
      It started the weekend just gone, with cleaning out Magpies room, and eradicating some Excess Stuff.

    Nice one, Westie. Probably a good move to make the…. move! It must be hard being away from your family during the week.

      Yeah, it’s quite difficult. I miss so much. In my family, what I am doing at the moment has a pretty significant sense of being normal for at least a couple of years – only one of my brothers has had to do it for a little while.

      If I can keep it to two years. I will be happy.
