The surf today

The surf today

I didn’t go out – I swear it’s because I split my face open at footy training and the nurse said not to get it wet. It’s certainly not because I was scared just watching it. Big day, though. Biggest in a while. I had fun photographing it, mostly early this morning. [...]

Half a year in status updates

Half a year in status updates

As a part of his job Brendan spends a lot of time writing reviews about things. Cars, caravans, holiday destinations. You name it, he’s reviewed it just about.  So it was only appropriate that he provide a review of our own lives this past 12 months. And what a 12 months it was apparently. It [...]

2013. A Review.

2013. A Review.

I had to go through the Camera Roll on my phone to get some sort of a clue about what has happened this year. It doesn’t feel like it was only a year ago that we welcomed in this one from our backyard. When I think back to it, I have to remember that Asher couldn’t [...]

The only way is up

The only way is up

In just under three weeks, myself and a few others will be embarking on a 225km bike ride – uphill. Starting at Tathra on NSW’s far south coast, we’ll be riding (almost) to the summit of Mt Kosciusko before walking the final 4km. I quite like riding, even riding up hills, but this is a [...]

Heads up folks, there’s a new Batty in town! Congratulations to brother Tom and his wife Madeline on the birth of their second daughter, Indiana Sandra. We were lucky enough to get some snaps of this beautiful little lady in her first weeks. What a stunner! River thinks she is “just lovely”. Leave a nice [...]

A letter of resignation

A letter of resignation

One of the worst experiences of our trip around Australia was the night of July 8, 2011. Nothing went right. That morning we’d departed from Seaforth, a small town about 40 minutes north of Mackay. We’d spent a week or so there, visited by Megan and Pete, sharing our time with friends we’d met earlier [...]

Beaten by a year two kid.

Here is the first work I ever had published. To date, I have written nothing better. The Ghost Castle Once upon a time there was a big ghost house and a ghost lived in it. No one went near it except me because I could fight ghosts. Some people call me ghost fighter and some [...]

Any given Tuesday (at 1am)(in a rock pool)(and actually only once a year)(sometimes it’s not even a Tuesday)

It’s 12:15am, Christmas morning. The 11pm Christmas Eve service of the local Anglican church has just wrapped up and people should be heading home so Santa has time to get all his work done. An excited, yet hushed whispering is spreading through the church hall and the congregation is filing out. A suspiciously large portion [...]
