Gnome Taxman

Oh, fudge. Oh, fiddlesticks. Oh, flipping fantastical flapjacks! I’m in so much trouble. This is no joke. No joke at all. I’ve just received a letter saying that my business is going to have the taxman come around to complete an audit. You don’t understand how bad this is. Have you seen the taxman in … [Read more…]

Treating biceps tendonitis

If the tendon around the long head of the bicep muscle is inflamed this results in a condition called biceps tendinitis. This can occur by degeneration of the tendon, particularly caused by sports that require overhead motion or as a result of the aging process.

Kennel Has Plumbing!

You know how I said I’m always looking to make my dogs’ lives better? Well, I’ve thought of the next thing that I can do! I’m going to add plumbing! If you remember my last blog post, I was adding electricity to the kennel so that my dogs could see at night and have a … [Read more…]

I’ve always wanted a house that reminds people of tigers, but I’ve had a big problem trying to settle on the colours. See, real tigers are usually orange and black, with bits of white. But here in Melbourne, we have a football team based on the majestic tiger, and their colours are yellow and black. … [Read more…]

Stuck Awning Window This probably sounds extremely trivial, but the one thing that annoys me more than anything is the awning window in my bedroom that always gets stuck. It seriously takes me five minutes each morning to open my window and then five minutes each night to close it. My boyfriend, who doesn’t live with me, … [Read more…]

Plumbing Plans Ruined

I can’t believe Jane invited more people to our date. I mean, she didn’t seem to realise it was a date, so I can’t really blame her, but it still sucks. This was supposed to be the two of us going to a plumbing-themed escape room, but now I’ve got to convince all of our … [Read more…]

Foot In The Grave

I just had a big blow-up with my dad. As usual, it was about something pretty stupid – I mean, stupid in terms of issues to have a shouting match about. Clearly, I’m in the right, so it’s completely nonsensical to argue about it. In short, my dad has been complaining of heel pain for … [Read more…]

A Real Mess

The drive out to the country is always an interesting one. Invariably, something stuffs up royally, whether it’s a blown tyre, someone getting stung by a mystery insect, or the weather somehow stepping in to prevent a bridge crossing. This time, I’ve gotten off relatively easy, with the van’s air conditioning deciding to conk out, … [Read more…]
