This is the first of my #project365 photos with me in it!
This photo was taken on the 11th of January, I have just been a little bust and pre-occupied over the past couple of days with the current flooding here in Brisbane, as well as Central Queensland and through Queensland’s Outback.
So, this photo is Jackson and I playing the wii. The game is Rugby League 3 and Jackson LOVES it… He’s getting better at the game too but he HATES being beaten… and i REFUSE to let the Raiders get beaten, so games where I’m the Raiders are very difficult balancing game between me not wanting the Raiders to lose and Jackson’s frustration.
The game was Jackson and Kylie’s present to me for Christmas… It’s a great Christmas presie!
I am shocking with change…. I hate carrying around any change in my pocket and that normally means I dump all the change, at the end of everyday on the counter in the kitchen. From there it gets transferred to the piggy bank and then from there to the secret hiding spot and never seen again. Poor plan huh!
Andrew Sinclair introduced me to this beautiful machine. It’s a coin counter! You take all your loose change in, tip it into a tray and the machine starts sorting the change and counts it for you. After counting the change, you’re issued with a receipt that you take to the teller. The teller then can deposit the funds into your NAB account, or, cash you out and provide you with the funds in notes
OK, that’s the cool part. The not-so-cool part is that if you are not an NAB customer, the service charge to use this service is 10% of the value of the transaction.
I’m not aware of it in any other banks, but would be great to know if they’re out there.
Love the machine NAB, I’ll be using it a lot.
Thats a pretty lame photo…. A shower? boooooring!
Well, hang on a second there. If you look closely enough you’ll notice that the hose hangs kinda wierd and there’s a couple of VERY minor scratches on the connection between the hose and wall mounting. Why?
Because I did this myself!
One of the several inside chores I did today was to put this up in Jackson’s bathroom.
It didn’t take as long as I thought it would and I didn’t completely stuff up any part of the installation.
I’m not a big fan of the actual set as the hose keeps turning the wrong way and the shower head doesn’t sit in its cradle properly. Poor design (not poorly installed)…
First day back at Pine Rivers Golf Club in 2011!
This photo is taken looking towards the green on 13th hole. This hole is not kind to me… It’s a 308 metre par 4, with a water carry, the hole is indexed as the 4th hardest hole on the course. I average a 6.4 on this hole…. I normally put my tee shot over on the right hand side of the fairway and trees stop me from having a reasonable approach shot.
Today though, I managed a 5, which included a stinky 3 putt! boo! My birdie putt was hit way too soft and the second putt was pushed to the right… blah!
Today’s round was pretty good. I hit a 90 off the stick, which is my second best score on the course, behind an 89 I hit in April 2009…
Going to have to check the Sunday Mail tomorrow morning to see if I manage to get on the podium.
My nephew’s name is Harry and he’s three years old, turning four in April.
Harry’s got a great cranky face which he pulls nearly on command.
This photo was taken at Mum & Dad’s on Friday night, after Jackson and Harry had spent the day there. Apparently the highlights of the day were seeing the movie “Tangled”, swimming in the pool, watching tele at home and running around chasing each other.
The Brisbane International is a tennis tournament played annually in Brisbane. It’s an ATP World Tour event and brings some pretty big tennis names to Brisbane. In the mens draw Andy Roddick and Robin Soderling lead the way and in the womens side of the draw Nadia Petrova and Sam Stosser are the main drawcards.
The venue is fantastic, with the main court covered and close by to a train station. Further information on the Queensland Tennis Centre, which is where the tournament is, have a look at http://www.queenslandtenniscentre.com.au/

Today’s photo is not one of me directly, but rather something about my beautiful State. Areas of Queensland are experiencing terrible flooding currently & I thought today I’d post a photo of the web page which has information about how to donate to the premier’s flood appeal.

This gekko found its way into Kylie’s handbag this morning.
I am not sure whether he was looking to be turned into a pair of shoes or wanted to go to work with Kylie. Neither happened, I fished him out and put him outside.
This is my January 3rd entry for the #365project where I am taking a photo a day for 365 days.
This is a photo of New Orleans Saints Quarterback Drew Brees and it was taken during the broadcast of the Tampa Bay vs New Orleans match on Fox Sports. it was taken from my couch, it’s not a live photo.
During the NFL season I get up at around 3am each Monday and watch the game on the web or on Foxtel if they are broadcasting a match. Mostly I like watching the games because I enjoy playing fantasy football.
These early morning wake ups are why I usually need a redbull around 230pm on a Monday afternoon.
