Spacetalk Family: Meet Tim!

Meet Tim, our social media superstar! Tim has been with us for six months and in that time has transformed our Facebook and Instagram pages into fun, vibrant and inspiring places to be.

Who is in your family?
I am married and have two sons, ages 5 and 7, as well as a whole bunch of pets.

Share your favourite memory with your family
Just recently we all snuck away to a gorgeous house in a rainforest, that also had views of the ocean, and from there we went down to a hidden waterfall in front of which my wife and I got married!

Pretty hard to top that 😊

Tell us a family tradition that’s unique to your clan
Despite living all around the country, my parents, my siblings, and our partners all get together on zoom to do the quiz in the Saturday edition of the Adelaide Advertiser.

Don’t get me wrong though – this is a competitive event.

What’s the funniest thing your child has said?
My youngest has an uncanny knack for repeating grown up terms and phrases at the perfect moment. Don’t know how he does it.

Do you have any pets? If so, introduce us!
I have two chihuahua’s named Tony and Lani, and two cats – an old boy named Ricky, and a kitten named Baby Ricky.

What is your pet named after?
Tony is named after Antonio Banderas, Lani is named after Melanie Griffiths, Ricky is named after Ricky Ponting, and Baby Ricky is named after the older Ricky!

Tell us three things you’re into
I love comics, boardgames, and vinyl. Nerd trifecta!

What are your tips for staying connected during a pandemic?
I think you should push yourself to do video calls with your friends and family. Even if just catching up on the phone isn’t normally your thing (guilty!), I’ve always found myself very grateful to my wife for suggesting it.

Complete this sentence: This year I want to reconnect with...
My sister and her new family, up north!

Tell us why
Since the pandemic my sister has had a son that I’m yet to meet and has another on the way – so I better get to it!

the love you take
is equal to the love you make
