2017: Freshwater Snails and other unusual sightings

2017: It’s a New Year Baby So here we are in 2017! And yes, I’m still intact. Even if the blog is a little tatty around the edges for lack of attention…Can I just ask, though, what does it actually mean? New Year? Well, I know it means that we’ve been counting the days we circle […]

Making time for yourself

Making time for yourself

How do you make time for yourself? I was thinking, in the wee-small hours when I should have been asleep, about something I read on Facebook. It was the frustration someone was experiencing being held back from starting a new exercise programme. Damn life was getting in the way. Like it does. It’s such a […]

Commitment Phobic

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. You ask […]

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 […]

A Marathon a Month Wish List

Travels Whilst I Rant No Comment
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 […]

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 […]

How to win at life

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 […]

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Thermofix for a Running Injury

Because a thermomix can come to the rescue… I have a running injury. And it is ruining my life. Or more precisely – it’s ruining my family’s lives. I’m not the funnest mum in the world right now.  Plus, without running, I don’t seem to have anything to say. I saw the physio last week, […]

End of the Affair

End of the Affair

I’m typing this whilst wallowing in self-pity.  I have a running injury. Since my dalliance with speedwork a couple of days ago, when the hip flexor got involved, things became messy, and now it’s all over between me and running. WAH! I feel isolated from my group of friends, because it’s suddenly obvious they were my […]

Weekend Running

Training Diary No Comment

It was a weekend of contrasts. The first half of my runs were great, but I dies a little later. I survived Push Day and Pull is still to come. I also found my way into the kitchen. AGAIN.
