4WD Road Trip

After six months, I am finally able to leave the house again. I broke my leg and had to have major surgery, so I’ve spent the last six months doing online courses and just generally trying to keep myself entertained. Last month, when I knew I was on the cusp of being able to leave …

Ensuite Redesign

We are just commencing our sixth week of a statewide lockdown and I have almost completely redesigned my house. I have never spent this much consecutive time here, and once I ran out of jobs to do around the house by week two, I began looking for areas of improvement through redesigns. I’ve seriously never …

Empty Your Mind

There’s nothing quite as relaxing to the nervous system as a completely empty parking lot. Don’t pretend you don’t know what I mean.

Easy Meal Prep

Last year was my first year out of home. I grew up on the border of Victoria and New South Wales, and absolutely loved it. I never really had to look after myself when living at home. My parents did my washing and cooking, and it was agreed that my siblings and I would split …

Did I Clutter?

Clutter: who needs it? Evidently, some reptilian part of my brain thinks I do, which is why there’s piles of the stuff surrounding my desk like a small, irregular fortress. If nothing else, at least I’m protected from apex predators. Thanks for that, lizard brain. Unfortunately, it also means I’m disorganised, unfocused and uncomfortable, as …
