We have signed up for the Sustainable Illawarra Super Challenge, and Monday night was the official launch of the programme.
The idea is for 120 households across the Illawarra to spend the next 12 months moving towards a more sustainable lifestyle. Sustainable Illawarra provides participants with information, workshops, guidance and resources (as well as some nice discounts and freebies from local businesses!) to help them achieve the goals they’ve set for themselves. In return, Sustainable Illawarra will learn what the issues are for local families, and they’ll also get some stories and case studies they can use in getting the message out to the wider community.
To keep track of what our family is doing and how far we’ve come, we’ve set up a new blog: Green-Change.com. Feel free to have a read, leave some comments, and send us suggestions!

Megan, Maryanne, Grace and I went down to Kiama harbour for the annual food and wine festival. I got a couple of good photos of the demonstration helicopter rescue. I didn’t take many other photos – it was too relaxing enjoying the food, wine, music and sunshine.

I entered four photos in the Kiama Show this year, and won a Highly Commended award for one of them. I’m hoping to have enough photos by next year to enter something in each category.
Megan and I went down to the show tonight to have a look around. The pavilion exhibits were pretty good this year – lots of great handiwork, flowers and vegies, but none of the monster pumpkins of previous years.

Neil and Emma.
Little Bradley wouldn’t stop dancing at the start of the night, even when we were trying to line him up for a portrait with Emma and Ryan. He was a bit more co-operative when Dad picked him up.
Ryan keeping Granddad busy.
Portraits of the couples: Megan and Darren, Angela and Chris, Paula and Adam, and Mark and Narelle. All of these were taken by Emma.
Fun with the glow sticks. Emma and Ryan took the photo of Narelle.
A night out in Kiama just isn’t complete without a facefull of rainbow ice-cream.
A big thanks to Emma, who was a fantastic photographer’s assistant throughout the night.
Email me if you’d like soft copies or prints of any these photos. Weirdos needn’t bother asking?— I’ll only send them to people I know!
