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 …

Fixing My Aircon

Repairing things is something that I’ve always been passionate about. I have so much fun repairing literally anything and everything.

The Confession

I’ve been feeling under the weather. Everyone suggests that I go see my GP, but they don’t understand. I just can’t. The GP wouldn’t know what to do with me. I don’t even think I would fit through the door. It’s time I confessed something. I’ve lied to you all for so long, I don’t …

Sewage Snail

I’ll let you in on a little secret: I used to be a snail. Bound to the earth, my worldview was limited, literally. It should be no surprise that I hated it. Few of us snails enjoy our miserable existence. We were always hunting different ways of freeing ourselves, but none of them worked. There …
