Strava. Did you say stalker?

Strava. Did you say stalker?

Strava came up in conversation today. Over a very well-deserved breakfast. (Which, incidentally, was delicious). Following my epiphany about training, the one about perfection, I embraced the inner turtle, which meant I trained today! It’s like a miracle. So, there we were, sitting around in a caff in Nundah, having cycled, swum, cycled, run. In a […]

The Oscarmort Song

Hello Huminions. Lord Oscarmort here. Have you missed me? I expect you have. I can’t imagine your life has been up to much without my furry excellence in it. The thing is, the huminion that I thought was well trained, turned out to be untrained and untamed and basically a foul huminion. She ripped me from […]

True Crime

True Crime

Hey. How’s your week going? Mine has been a little odd. Surprise…. You’d think, really, that my interactions with random acts of weirdness would have topped out on Sunday, when I witnessed the drunken port-a-loo door banger at City2South. But no! I’ve got closer to true crime than that and have had firsthand experience of […]

Weekly Wrap: The Bug Fest

The final week of April was NOT the week I had planned. On a high from joining South Bank Triathlon Club (SBTC) and surviving (barely) the first run session – which just happened to be interval training – as well as a huge spin session on Wednesday, I was ready to start getting consistent. I […]

Is fitness causing sickness?

I’m worried! I’m worried that my efforts to improve my fitness are causing sickness? Please read this post with your fingers pinching the top of your nose. Why? Because that is what I sound like, right now. I have a cold. *insert very sorry-for-itself-looking “smiley”* (which is obviously doing its best not to be too smiley and […]

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 […]

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 […]

Running with Dogs

Running with Dogs

I recently purchased a running leash, because I like the idea of running with the dogs.  My pooches are big dogs, ideally suited to long distance running and I’ve seen pictures on Instagram that make it look like a fun thing to do. But my purchase sat on the side looking interesting. Because I’ve tried running […]
