Helping a neighbour with his pool fence

Most of the time I am worried about having my work missed or not being able to do a good enough job for my superiors. This however, is me simply using the tools I have available to me to help out someone in need, in this case my neighbour Wilson. We’ve been neighbours for over … [Read more…]

My feet have been killing me recently

I have been on my feet, on average, about 13 hours a day. Considering that most people are only awake for 16 hours a day, that should put some things into perspective for you. I am on my feet almost constantly. Not just on my feet either, but moving around, walking, running, climbing and jumping. … [Read more…]

Giving Up the Brunch for Greater Things

All those years of avocados and lattes…who knew my brunch obsession would be the one main factor in me not being able to buy my own home?

Office Gets A Garden

It’s true what they say: a café is judged by its garden. I’m certainly not going to pick up my coffee from a dingy, dismal-looking café when I can go to somewhere else with flowering bulbs and sunshine.

I mean, I’ve watched renovation TV shows and I’ve seen them cry their eyes out over brindabella roses. I never thought I would have … [Read more…]

Got to Get that Brain Working Hard

It’s come to my attention that…there’s a lot I don’t know about the world. Can’t blame everything on school, although maybe, like…a history lesson would’ve been nice. We didn’t even do history in school except for one subject in Year 8, and even then we just learned about Australian history. So when I made it … [Read more…]

The Perfect Venue For Observation

Remember that film ‘Signs’, with Melon Gibson and the cute little kids? Well there is some truth to it. I had an interesting case recently that was eerily similar to that film. A troubled parent contacted me and told me their child was saying some strange things about aliens trying to talk to them. Now … [Read more…]
