Couples Posing with Han & Leia

Earlier this year some friends of mine got married on May the 4th. Yes that’s right, Star Wars Day! So I decided to make them a personalised wedding card for the day. I took Han and Leia on a photo shoot to the front yard.

I had to go out on two separate occasions as it was a bit windy and the couple keep falling for each other.



Oy! Look this way Han. Sometimes Men need a little more direction…

Where did 10 years go?


Earlier this month, my eldest boy turned 10.  As he gets older, I post less about him, mainly because he is mostly at school and not home to take pictures of, but also at that stage of his life where the fake smile reigns and all he does is build Lego, and well, how many pictures of him playing Lego can you take?

I know we all say it, I say it all the time. How has 10 years gone past? How can I be celebrating my son’s 10th birthday when I still remember mine, like it was not that long ago.  I don’t think I will ever get used to this getting older thing.

This year as it was my son’s 10th, we said we would have his party at the “Road Transport and Safety Centre” locally known as The Bike Centre, we have been here for past birthdays and it is just fantastic.

He was spoilt rotten by all his family and friends.



This year a Batman Cake was ordered.  I simply made two packet cake mixes in a lamington sized tray, stuck them together and iced with yellow butter icing.  I used coloured sugar (which can be found on ebay) and printed a template of the batman logo on the home printer, cut it out and placed it on the cake, sprinkled the black sugar, and slowly peeled off the template.
