Let’s see if I still have friends by the end of it. Sorry team cacti. From left – Myself, Charmene Yap, Holly Doyle, Chloe Leong and Josie Weise. Preparing […]

It’s my birthday!

It’s my birthday!

Titch (otherwise known as Twin2) asked if I was excited about my birthday last night.  And the honest answer was no.  Because, you know, I’m another year closer to 50, which is another decade closer to 60. And then, Titch pointed out, helpfully? reassuringly? that’s when you turn into Granny. I was more worried about […]

Comrades Marathon Review

Comrades Marathon: The Definitive Lord Oscarmort Interview Hello Readers. My huminions left the house – for a weekend away, I thought.  I was wrong.  I was abandoned; left to the ministrations of the Small and Weak huminions. I’m quite capable of controlling the Furry Beasts, but this has been a harrowing experience.  The Small and […]

The Long Jog to Comrades

One cold Sunday in South Africa in 2012, I contracted an infection.  It was called Comrades Fever.  It rendered me unable to move, and for 12 hours I lay under a blanket staring blankly ahead, only vaguely aware of my direct surroundings. I was transported into a virtual world, somewhere several hundred kilometres from where […]

Shit just got real… Comrades is coming

So, this time next week, I won’t be sitting in my study, typing.  I won’t be in Australia.  I won’t be sitting at all.  To be fair, at this time next week, I’ll probably be lying in bed, tossing and turning about the day ahead, because, technically it will be the middle of the night […]

Easter Miracles

And I don’t just mean the miracle where I update my blog; no, there’s more!! There’s the fact that I ran 35km today.  On my own.  And I didn’t even fall over.  (Last week I ran the same route with friends, and luckily Jacqui came equipped with a backpack the size and weight it looked like she […]

Why is my running blog all about wine and animals?

Why is my running blog all about wine and animals?

I wonder if you can help me?  I have come to a realisation that my running blog features much animal madness and wine yet little running.  So, today, because I haven’t been running for a whole week, and therefore have no running anecdotes to offer, it seems I have a burning desire to turn my attention to […]

Beware Paypal – the evil lovechild of Wine and the Devil

There is a hidden lurking danger out there.  You need to be aware.  Paypal is a threat and I am writing this to protect you. I don’t want you to suffer in the same way as I have. Last weekend, I had dinner with a glass of wine (OK, possibly two or three)* and it transpires, […]
