Early morning trip to Bondi

So as I keep mentioning this summer in NSW has not been a great one. In fact many people are calling it the worst they can remember (it certainly is the worst we can remember, but we’ve only been here 5 years!).

However, it seems that summer has decided to show it’s face again – now it’s officially autumn! So we decided on an early morning trip to Bondi Beach with a couple of friends – just a trip to take some photos, enjoy the early morning light, watch the surfers and have a lovely breakfast.

It certainly has been a lovely day, only marred by the fact that one of our cats (Molly) has not been seen since Friday morning – hopefully she is ok. I keep reminding myself of when our cat in the UK (Macy – remember her?!) went walkabout for 2-3 days. We were pretty worried about her but she turned up safe and sound and smelling of cigar smoke! So we assumed that she must have been to stay with an OAP (sorry – I’m not saying all OAP’s smoke cigars but this is the story we had in our heads ok?) who spoiled her rotten!

Anyway – some photos for you….

7.30am at Bondi Beach - not a bad way to start the day

The morning light was lovely

The crowds just starting to arrive for a day of baking...

Surfers catching the early waves

The famous Bondi Icebergs pool getting a bashing

Until next time….

Oh and if you see a tabby cat looking lost, please give us a call!

Balcony update

It’s been slow going but the balcony refurb is getting close to an end. This weekend I installed all the stainless steel wires – all I need to do now is get some timber decking to do the underside (which will be painted), then finish the edges and I’m done!

Looking a bit more like a balcony!

Summer has been a bit of an English affair this year – record rainfall, lower than average temperatures, lots of cloud – so hopefully autumn will be much nicer. Then at least we can make some use of the balcony before winter arrives!

I’ve been very, very slack

Yes, I know. No updates to this website for 9 months?

My excuse is that there has been lots and lots of other projects going on and the nicandgraham website was a bit unwieldy for updating things regularly. So here’s a fresh(ish) start – I’ve stripped it right back to JUST blog posts – and none of the other galleries/videos pages and also no ‘Home’ page. That is, this page is it! Just blogs.

All the old stuff’s still there if you want to have a look in the archives etc.

Hopefully this will mean much more frequent updates!!

This is my sole responsibility now – Nic has too much to do on her niccooks website – make sure you have a look if you can!!
