Commitment Phobic

I think I might be a commitment phobic. Not in terms of my relationship. I’m pretty committed to the Grumpster. And the kids. Possibly less so to the Hubstacle V1.0.  Looking back, there may have been some parallel issues with commitment back there. Oh, but I’m very committed to the dogs. Particularly the cat-dog.

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 […]
