JAMALI AND THE STAND UP PADDLE BOARD

8/01/2016 – Playing around at Point Walter

PointWalter

It was quite a windy day at Point Walter, so the kite surfers were out in force. Some of them were jumping over the spit, others were just learning and getting dragged along in the sand.

Jamali had been keen to have a go on the paddle board for some time so it was good to finally be able to get together with him and see what he could do.

Jamali2

Jamali, of course, was up and standing as soon as he got on the paddle board.  He disappeared so quickly that I hardly had time to get a photo of him, then off he went down river.

As the wind picked up more kite surfers appeared.

And here’s a lovely photo to mark the occasion, after about 5 attempts we got one that is worth preserving.

Then of course he decided to splash me!!!

UPDATE ON MY BOYS

June 17, 2015 – What are they up to now?

I had better give an update on what my boys are up to.

Firstly, Jamali.

Jamali&Marco

Here he is with his dad, Marco.  This was taken before the beautiful locks came off.

JamaliSketch

I tried my hand at sketching and was quite pleased with the result.

And here we have the “as now” picture, lots of muscles, lots of tatts, and a big smile.  I met up with Jamali this evening, he was on his way back to Newman, WA for more work.  At the moment, he is working on a casual basis but hoping for permanent work to come his way soon.

Pip1

Phillip has been working hard at Uni and 2 days a week for the company that gave him work experience this summer, engineering shock absorbers for racing cars.

PipWE3

Above shows one of the cars that he was working with.

Pip4B

And here we have Phillip relaxing with a cool drink.  Last year at Uni so the going is getting tough.

Tom2B

Here is a photo of Tom being President last year at his residential college, Lincoln.

TomFootyB

This year Tom decided to play footy with a local team, Klemzig. Luckily one of the supporters loves taking photos, so I can get a good supply of them from Tom’s FaceBook page.

Great action shots, and who does that tongue remind you of???  I can’t quite believe my boys have all grown up so big and strong.  Amazing!

TomFootyJune1

Here’s what the boys would have called “a booter” in their younger days.

TomFootyJUNE7

Great action shot here.

And there is that “twins look” again, or is he just saying “you had better not get to lunch before me”?

UPDATE ON MY GORGEOUS SONS

31/08/2014   Having seen some lovely photos on Facebook I thought I would share them with family and friends for all to see just how gorgeous my boys are, and what handsome young men they have turned into.   I’m allowed to brag sometimes.

Tom is not to be outdone.  (Tom’s comment to me regarding this photo – “I just can’t help it mum”).

Tom&Phil2

You can work this one out.

And just to show he can mix it with the twins.

T&PPoliceMen6Phillip and Tom at a Lincoln College show (wearing old school jumpers). I love this photo because I can see they are sharing some sort of private moment,  just sharing a glance across at each other like they used to do when they were little.

And last but not least, this is what happens when you don’t look after yourself.  Cut your elbow, slap a few  band aids on it, fly back to work in the desert, get sent back to Adelaide for stitches, and then……

JamaliHospital

it gets infected and you end up in hospital for five days.  Ouch – not a good way to celebrate your birthday Jamali (25, 10 August 2014).   I am sure you will look after yourself a bit better in the future.
