Run Fat B!tch Run!

Run Fat B!tch Run!

I bought a book at the weekend.  In fact I bought two.  About running.  Nothing spectacular in that, I know, but it was a first for me.  I have never bought a book about running before.  But there is so much that I don’t know about running, and I can’t rely on Coach Zoey all […]

IKEA saved my life today!

IKEA saved my life today!

  Honestly, I thought I was going to die today.  I didn’t have the whole “life flashed before me” kind of experience, but I did want to have a full blown panic.  But as none of my fellow passengers had gone into mental meltdown, I decided I’d better restrain myself. Plus there was a head […]

Confessions of a reluctant dog walker

I have a confession to make that might be a little unexpected.  I am writing this right now because the alternative is having to take the dogs for a walk.  And bearing in mind I reckon I’m quite the little dog lover, not to mention some time Fitbit addict, it might seem a bit strange.  […]

Remembering Tom

Remembering Tom

A bit of a coincidence today.  Each member of our team at work takes it in turns to give a “safety tool box talk” and today fell to me.  On Remembrance Day. Being a Brit, this is our one day of remembrance, but my topic for my talk was not so much about fallen war […]

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?

Is it really 25 years since the Berlin Wall came down?  That really is a scary statistic!  It only feels like yesterday.    You see that is one world event that I remember very well, because I was there!  Not literally there, as in Berlin, trying to breach the wall to reach the Brandenburg Gate, you […]

Confessions of a Fangirl…

The Long Jog to Comrades 4 Comments

Word is finally out that Kate and Zoey over at Operation Move have their sights set on conquering Comrades in 2015.  And as I was already having delirious dreams of flying the 9,500kms to Durban to take part in the epic 90kms run, I’m now part of the 3 woman OpMove team! (Not that it’s […]

The Boganvillia Beach Fiasco

Homelife Crisis 3 Comments

So up here in Boganvillia, we have a beach, which we all know and love as the Foreshore.  Because…. that’s it’s name.  I was going to tell you exactly how long it is, in a very precise and researched kind of way.  All professional and everything.  (And more to the point, I am falling literally off the board in […]

There’s a dog in my toilet!

Doodles, Boo & OscarMort, too 1 Comment

Not  literally in my toilet, you understand.  He’s not there, gazing up at me. Thank goodness.  That would be a bit freaky.  Although I have caught him with his head in the bowl having a crafty drink.  Which makes me think that it’s just as well I have a touch of the eco warrior about […]

Boganvillia

Homelife Crisis 1 Comment

So I was sitting there sipping my tea, catching up with what’s going on the in the world.  And by that, I mean I was looking at Facebook, because that is the actual news now, right? Anyway, it’s flooded with pictures of fashionistas at the Melbourne Cup.  (Mrs Lynch: looking LOVELY!!) and then a link […]

Tyranny of the Treadmill

The Long Jog to Comrades 4 Comments

The other evening I did a treadmill run.  I don’t like the treadmill.  I want to be out there being nosey, because that’s what makes running fun.  But I couldn’t, because of the weather.  Now, I’m a good English girl, so a sprinkle of rain is only going to add to the joy of a […]
