A Marathon a Month Wish List

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 […]

Three Coffees and a Funeral

Blogging is dead! The death knell of blogging has been tolled by none other than Mia Freedman. Who doesn’t blog. But still. Nooooo!! 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

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 […]

Should dogs quit sugar?

I blogged once this month already, so I’m as surprised as you are that I’m back on the wires again. But I have some exciting news to share. (And it isn’t that Lord Oscarmort suddenly discovered affection. I mention this because he’s just spent the last 5 minutes growling and hissing at me for my audacity […]

On Moving to Australia

On Moving to Australia

Or How to Get a Visa for South Australia So I was randomly thinking about expectations of moving to Australia.  As opposed to moving across Australia, which is what I guess I should be thinking about. I’ve been asked a lot if I’ve started packing yet. Should I have started?  I haven’t even thought about it. […]

How to win at life

I don’t know if it’s coincidence, but Friday was the last day of term 3 and I was informed that I’m officially “horrible”. In less than 24 hours, I managed to fall out with all 3 of my children.  Good effort! It rounds off a week where I’d been given feedback that I don’t give enough discretionary effort […]
