Stop Running

Stop Running

What happens when you abruptly stop running? Not the sort of stop running, when you’re puffing like you’re auditioning for a part as a very raspy engine on Thomas the Tank Engine. Or giving a raspberry a good run for its money on who’s the darkest shade of red. But the “you can’t run anymore because you’ve […]

It’s a trying 2016 so far

Can you believe we’re nearly a quarter of the way through 2016? What has happened to time? Is there some disturbance in the space-time continuum that means that time is getting ahead of itself? Or is it that we’ve moved nearer the equator and somehow that secretly makes time pass more quickly?  (It could be the […]

The Oscarmort Report

From the Not Particularly Dark Side of the Moon Help! It is me, Lord Oscarmort. I have been catnapped and am being held prisoner. Against my will. Doors are closed. They won’t open. Something has happened to my huminions. They have forgotten all the training I gave them in door-opening. I am protesting. Loudly. When […]

A Marathon a Month Wish List

I don’t think it has quite sunk in that we have relocated to Brisbane, and this is my life now. We’re living in a cute little holiday home awaiting the arrival of our belongings, so it really feels like we’re just visiting. We have no routine, no responsibilities, no deadlines; each day we wake up […]

The Epic Ice Device Fail

Or Plantar Fasciitis, WTF!! So I’ve been vaguely aware that my foot is a bit sore. Sort of on top of the ankle joint and around the sides. When you’re not exercising you become more vague about these niggles. Or maybe it’s just me: a bit vague. Anyhow, I’d put it down to an inverse […]

Blame it on the Beetle

Blame it on the Beetle

AKA My Comrades Marathon Conundrum I was hoping the practice I’ve had at moving in recent times would make me more accomplished at this moving house malarky. After all, this time was merely interstate, not extra-continental. But nope.  I learnt that moving with pets adds a whole new curveball. And they turned out to be […]

Just as I was putting on my glad rags ready to join the blogging party, my impeccable timing in all things strikes again,meaning it looks like I’ll rock up and find there is […]

The Hipster and the Hippy

So the house hunting has begun and one day in, it’s already been an adventure.  Herbert and I managed to be at every appointment on time, which was a small miracle, as I’m never on time, and more than could be said for most agents. But turns out me and the boy make a very […]

A Run in with the Fashion Police

The big Brisbane trip has started. An early taxi and too much luggage – (I thought it was important that I brought Trivial Pursuit in addition to practically my entire running wardrobe and some books of which 1 is hardback. Oh, and the stuff for Mishel’s sister. And just quietly, I’ve started reading the book I’m […]

Top Advice for Moving with Pets

I just counted and it’s a maximum of 5 weeks before we move. At 5 weeks out, you’d think we’d have a slightly more confirmed date, but the thing is, moving can ONLY take place once primary school graduation takes place and well, the relocation company are somewhat on the laid-back side of the helpfulness spectrum. When we […]
