What about the “Other Stuff”?

It’s time I started a few non-library realted posts and what better way to begin than with Fathers’ Day last Sunday. It was a beautiful sunny day and the extended family met for breakfast at Hillary’s Boat Harbour. We found a table for 9 overlooking the sheltered bay and a few expensive-looking yachts and were entertained by the antics of the ever-hungry seagulls.

I am blessed with two wonderful sons and their equally wonderful wives. One couple lives in Melbourne so wasn’t able to join us but G & R, their sons J and K and her parents L & G as well as my mum and my husband were all there. After breakfast which the menfolk had no difficulty downing but which the ladies struggled to finish we repaired to G & R’s house to inspect his father’s day present – a new trampoline. The young boys are, of course, “allowed” to use it and are even encouraged by being offered extra computer or TV time for every hour they spend on the trampoline. Mum’s oven timer has never seen so much use!

G spends a lot of time with his boys encouraging them to cycle, run, surf and play sport. He is also studying part time and has one more unit to complete his MBA. Hope he maintains his unblemished record of distinctions for the last unit. He has also recently been promoted to general manager of his organisation. Added to that he is tall, blonde, well-built and good looking – really a son to be proud of (I’ll talk about the other handsome son nex post, maybe).

His wife, R, is building up her clothing business making and supplying ecologically friendly children’s clothes. I saw her collection on a rack in the living room and was charmed by the innovative designs. She is preparing for a stall at a craft fair at Perth City Hall on Sunday – look out for JacKai Designs.
