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?

Gordon St Gossip

So first things first - no more seizures from Lil so far. She had her EEG a little while back, and we're booked in to see the paediatrician in early August - until then there's not much we can do. We take turns sleeping on the floor of the kids' room to keep an eye on her, and we're making sure she doesn't have a few really energetic days in a row, but that's just guesswork. Still, no news is good news.

Cheryl's brother and his family are back from Malaysia for 6 months, and her sister is over from Queensland for a week during uni break, which meant Cheryl managed to work out the one afternoon where everybody was available and organised Joel to take photos. We were very lucky with the weather - there was an hour between showers, there was no strong breeze and it was nicely overcast, which all made for wonderful winter photos.

If there's a day where Dayna, Bruce, babby, Glenn, Dee and Jules will all be in Bendigo it'd be worth considering getting a shoot done. Joel's great - very patient, and not too expensive. Plus he gives you digital copies of the photos, rather than charging huge sums to get printed versions.

Here's a few favourites (he sent through 99 photos in total)


  1. I just wrote a comment and it doesn't look like it saved/published, so maybe the setting isn't right yet. Now to treherbert what I wrote...

    The photos are lovely! I especially like the Autumn leaves ones - they look like loads of fun!

    I agree that it would be good to do the same with our lot. We'll let everyone know as soon as we book flights - have to wait until the little one is born because they won't let us book tickets without a name... and our list doesn't include any unisex names. ;-)

    Happy to hear that Lil hasn't had any more seizures. We'll keep fingers crossed for August - hopefully it was a one off. Still scary to think about tho.

    Enjoy Autumn
