The Family Bandwagon

Our family is spread out across the country and across the world, and what better way to keep in touch than a collaborative digital journal?

What we've been doing

Time for an update from the Adelaide family :)
Firstly Oscar. Poor little thing has been trying to get over tonsillitis this week. It started with a fever last Wednesday that kept on coming and going. By Monday he was quite miserable so we took him to a GP and got some antibiotics. He's been enjoying his special little drinks of medicine. He sucks it out of the syringe! :) Yesterday his fever went down and he slept for about 6 hours and was feeling much better. Today we went to our GP and she has also prescribed some drops for his eye which is a bit infected (probably due to him spreading his infection when he rubs his face). Os and I stayed home yesterday and will be home tomorrow again instead of our usual work & childcare routine. The doctor thinks that he should be better by the end of this weekend.
As well as childcare & work, Os and I have been busy with a few other things. We attend a nutrition class every second Monday as part of a study on childhood obesity through one of the universities. I've learnt a lot from the classes, plus they provide free childcare during the class and a fruit platter to share ;) We also usually attend playgroup on a Thursday morning and catch up with Os' little friends and do some craft activities.
Damien will be teaching his second class tonight. He got another call last night from someone interested in joining, so the class is steadily growing. When Oscar is well enough we'll come along to a class and take some photos :)
And finally, it was our 6-year anniversary last weekend. We didn't end up doing too much because Oscar was unwell, but we did have a nice dinner at home.
Oh yeah, I've also put some photos and a video of Oscar walking up onto Facebook!


  1. I loved the video of Oscar walking. Glad to hear he is improving. Tonsillitis can be so painful.

  2. I watched 'Splice' last night, then saw your video of Os the walker ... the movie was good but yours is better. :-)

    (Splice shows a little genetically engineered creature learning to walk; I'm not being entirely random, promise.)
