Right place, right time.


Benji is seen here taking full advantage of the chocolate carnage from one of Mummy and Daddy's many film evenings. Well when we both don't have much to do and our weekends are mostly spent inside away from the cold, one must always have a little chocolate. Mustn't one? Benji doesn't even know they are chocolates, he just likes the shiny paper...he he he.

Benji the Tank Engine



A very generous gift of a train track and some trains came, from morfar or Grandad depending on which side of the clan you come from, which was very well received by his royal highness. Hours of toot toot and chugga chugga to follow.

Happy Birthday sweetheart!

Mummy Daycare

Off he goes for his first day at daycare without Mummy. Surely someone so small shouldn't be going anywhere by himself?

Morning has broken

As you can see, Benji and I need a little time to wake up in the morning.

Curious George

videoA classic when I was a kid, when ever that was? Gosh it seems like such a long time ago, and living away from NZ for such a long time, I have half forgotten who I am. Well I remember some things. One of those things was watching Curious George after school lying on the lounge floor while eating from a 20kg sack of apples in the kitchen. To make a short story long, Benjamin loves Curious George, who is called Nicke Nyfiken in Swedish. Nyfiken means 'curious' and of course Nicke, is just a cool name right? Hmmm? Well it rhymes right? Hmmm? I think it's like calling him Curious Burious, a Slovenian monkey who works in a mine all day and gets ribbed by his mates for being called Burious, and has the last laugh by being as Curious as he can be!
What a ramble. Benji loves him anyway and we are planning to paint his bedroom with vast amounts of Curiosity with flashes of Georgeness!

Fighting the bulge

As you can see Benji loves his food. He eats everything at every meal and often asks for more. His favourites at the moment are bananas, bread, broccoli and barrots. Well he can say the 'B' sound so well, so let's just call them barrots shall we? But he will seriously eat anything as this classic photo shows. Do you think he can see what the scale says over that almost perfectly round tummy bulge?

Anyone got any ideas for a caption?

Benj George


If any of you remember the 80's (when?), well I do and it was absolutely awesome for one hit wonders and terrible fashion. Here is a blast from the past. No one had 'better' fashion sense in the 80's than Boy George!

The Boy in the Mirror

video
There is something refreshing about a boy who can be driving heavy machinery, stop to kiss himself in the mirror and then be on his way.
Well I think it's refreshing anyway.

Learning to Smile

video
As an adult, we never stop and wonder how we got where we are. I for one, never thought you needed to learn how to smile. Of course there are those adults, (I see lots everyday) who still don't know how to smile! Benjamin (with a lot of help from Mum) is learning how to smile. As you can see he is getting there.


Follow this blog! Is there anyone out there who actually reads this anymore???
