A year in the life 2016 #358: holidaze

I went for a ride.

Jude made zombie popsicles.

We all went and saw Rogue One.

Sebastian made churros for dessert.


A year in the life 2016 #335a: Christmas concert

Zac played at his cello teachers’ Christmas concert – very well. His cello playing has really come on this year.

Jude and I went to listen.

A year in the life 2016 #333: hockey supervision

Another Friday night, another chance to watch Jude’s team play indoor hockey. Sadly they got smashed again. On the upside, there has been improvement.

A year in the life 2016 #321: Jude and comics

Jude and I today went to the Comic Festival in Civic. He bought some comics, I bought some postcards and we had a lovely time watching everyone in cosplay.

A year in the life 2016 #300: Halloween

So I went to Jasmin’s annual Halloween party as the scariest thing I could think of – a Trump supporter.

Jude was a smurf and Zac was Thompson, or maybe Thompson.

We were all out dressed by Rachel as a suffragette.

While the hostess was rather intimidating.

Jude got a bit scarier.

Zachary, more civilised.

And a lovely time was had by all.

A year in the life 2016 #299: indoor hockey

Here is a gratuitous selfie of me waiting for Jude’s indoor hockey game to begin.

And here is Jude playing. Jude did pretty well, but his team got hopelessly smashed. I think this isthe first time most of them have played the indoor form of the game, and they were up against a well drilled, more experienced and taller team. So it wasn’t pretty.

A year in the life 2016 #297: making movies

Jude here is helping to film Zac who is starring in his own “Mr Manners” guide to etiquette. It is an old joke in the family, because Zac, the youngest, likes to pick us up on our table manners. I haven’t seen the final product yet!
