IMG_20140804_203758Today was a great day as I got to work on a shoot with my brother which we’ve not done for many many years and it was really great.

It was nice to work in such an effortless fashion which only happens when you are used to working with each other. The shoot itself was simple enough and we got through it with some great footage.

Made me appreciate how much I like working with my bro.

BothBabies-11-Week-ScanAND IT’S TWINS!

After a VERY long, painful, emotional and arduous journey Ruth and I are so happy to let the world know that in October, two tiny shiny new Robinson’s will be making their debut.

This past Wednesday we went in to Queen Charlottes for Ruth’s 11 week scan and we were both able to breathe out the biggest sigh of relief as we saw and heard our babies. Both twins are doing really well with healthy heartbeats and they’re both the right height although one is a little bit shorter (Ruth said that one is taking after me).

The scan was such an amazing experience and was in such contrast to the last time. We were both very anxious when we went in but after the sonographer put the gel on Ruth’s belly and started spreading it around I was immediately able to see a significant difference.

There was something there! There were two chambers and they both had something in them! My jaw dropped to the floor and didn’t leave till the end. A little bit of manoeuvring resulted in seeing one of out babies heartbeats and the lump in my throat grew. Then we saw the other heartbeat. We saw their little bodies and limbs and we even saw them wriggling about and while my eyes welled up, Ruth gave in to relief and pure joy came in tears.

That was a good day and the sound of their heartbeats was the best thing I have ever heard.

We are so grateful and I will repeat as I have said before that: God is good! These babies are a gift. A very expensive one but a gift none-the-less. These guys come out of our second round of treatment. We had a failed attempt during the summer which had us stumped but we persevered and here we are. I firmly believe that every life is God’s to give and every one is a miracle – in fact we know every life is a miracle as we’ve lived this.

Over the past few months we’ve also learnt that morning sickness has a crap name. Ruth has been suffering lots with feeling under-par for the best part of the last two month although we have found this to be a really encouraging sign.

Now we have the task of parenting ahead of us and we can’t wait.

We wanna thank you for your prayers and ask you to continue praying for our new family!

Ten Years Blogging Yo!!

By Blog, Profound, Work One Comment


I started my first ever blog post with the title “Welcome to ma website Yo!!” It seems fitting to mark the tenth anniversary of my blogging life.

While most of the older posts make me want to shove my fist in my mouth as I appreciate how much of a dork I used to be. All the past relationships, the manic rants, the forlorn prose all point towards the simple success of this blog and what I started it for.

This blog was never going to be something I wanted to be successful in the sense of numbers of visits (although secretly I celebrated every hit with triumphant bliss). The main function was to (b)log my life so that I would be able to look back and see where/how-far I’ve come.

It does that pretty well and I enjoy being able to look back.

Seeing as this is the tenth year I thought I’d go with the cliché of listing a ten:

Ten most popular posts (it depresses me that a Facebook related post is at the top):

Things are looking up for the Robinsons. We’re trying to be more positive and so trying to think positive about the future and being grateful for what we have.

Hey, it works!
