Welcome Lochlan Fergus Harris

Hannah and Angus are now the proud parents of Lochlan Fergus Harris. Born 5:22am on Saturday morning at Ryde Hospital. I was lucky to get a cuddle today, only 1 day old.

My Mum - the artist

Mothers Day seems to be an appropriate day to post a big congratulations to my mum who received her Diploma of Fine Arts on Thursday night from the Sydney Gallery School. A lot of work has gone into getting this far, and she is still working towards her advanced diploma.

Got the fright of my life when this fella appeared right by my hand while I was attempting to put the cover back on the BBQ. Once I removed my heart from my mouth I couldn't resist getting a photo - the focus isnt quite right but I wasnt that keen to hang around any longer.

Congratulations Eunice and Luke

Eunice and Luke were married last weekend in Blackheath with a wonderful reception at Leura Gardens Resort. Don't know if it is my pending nuptials or that I have become a complete sop lately but had a tear in my eye on more than one occasion - it was all very romantic.

The old Cheltenham gang made a weekend of it, staying at Peartree Cottage in Leura (Go there! Its awesome). Nothing better than an fireplace, a glass of red, and a bunch of good friends.

How man seamen does is take to change a lightbulb? And other interesting shipping facts.


Signatures from the duty deck officer, chief mate, and captain, and an IR to to do the changing - now that's OH&S gone crazy!

I also found out today that shipping pilots wear suits to work, which is weird since everyone else on board dresses more like this.

Update: for all those people that wonder what the hell Brent does out there for 6-8 weeks at a time... got browsing and found this: description (well in my landlubber opinion anyway)
