Welcome to our blog

We both live at Simpsons Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Central Australia, the best spot in the NT! Our blog is for friends and family to see how we are going, and to share in what we have been up to throughout the year. Please leave us a comment, and we hope you enjoy!

Heritage Night

On Thursday night, Parks and Wildlife staged another successful Heritage Night at the Alice Springs Telegraph Station. It was a good turnout and a fun night. We went to the Dawn Service on Anzac Hill, but they forgot to sing the national anthem - at least I think they fogot??? Anyway, I don't think anyone actually cared, how very Australian!

27 weeks and kicking goals

Hi there,

Kylie is 27 and a bit weeks today - here is another pic for you. All is well with us at the moment, and we will keep you posted on how things are going later. We have a new email address by the way - philandkylie8@bigpond.com and we obviosuly still use our work addresses. I thought I should add a photo of me in France last year, at the Courcellete cemetery in the Somme. I am beside the grave of a distant relative, Robert Hair, who died during the attack on Mouquet Farm (near Pozieres). 11,000 men were killed, wounded or went missing in 1 month, to take 1.5 miles of front. Pretty amazing stuff, happy Anzac Day. Talk soon, Phil, Kylie, Harry, Lucy and 2 thirds baby...
