Burleigh Heads

Monday was a beach-trip with Brande’, which was a lovely day. Always love going to Burleigh when it’s not overly crowded. There were still a fair few people there, given that it’s school holida...

Update and Goldy piccies

I had a fairly good time on the Goldy. I didn’t do much besides a few beach-walks and dip my feet in the Pacific. I had a nice view to the north so I also had side views of the ocean and the Hi...


I’m on the Gold Coast for a couple of days. Why not, I figure. I actually umm’ed and Ahh’d over it for quite some time, but decided I’d go ahead with it because a) I only live once (YOLO!) and b...

Is life returning?

I’m doing alright! Just some really busy weeks at work lately, running around like a headless chook trying to get as much done as possible, and mostly succeeding, but man am I rushed? Even my l...

Blue dreams

I was very depressed today. Not exactly sure why. I just wasn’t in a good mood. I went to the local newsagent to get a $5 scratchie (because way to fix depression Matt, gamble!) and the guy be...

Flu shot time

I didn’t go to the Gold Coast to catch up with Brent, like he invited me to this week. I was still reading too much of that Reddit thread and didn’t like the idea of jumping in a metal carriage ...


I’m currently reading an absolutely fascinating Reddit thread of people writing about their Covid-19 experiences - people they know or them themselves having tested positive, and what they are go...

Cue-tip

I’m currently sitting on my bed with a cue-tip (I think that’s what American’s call it) hanging from one nostril, if you must know how my CoVid-19 days are going. For some reason, I have an anno...

Seventh time around

Well I suppose I should mention that I became an uncle, yet again, for the seventh time today. My younger brother and his wife were expecting their devil-spawn - I mean newborn - sometime today,...

New hurr

I have about a half-hour before heading back to work for the second day this week (and it’s Saturday!). It was a bit weird to have yesterday off as a leave day, but nice to not have to get up at...

Pie in the park

I just got done watching Martin Garrix’s live-stream, the second one he’s done in a few weeks now. His last one was gone doing his set from on top of a tower. This one was him doing his set fro...

Close the lid

I just got done watching another one of Jacinta Ardern’s Facebook Live updates, and am longing yet again to move across the ditch to New Zealand lol. Man, she just makes everything so clear-as-d...

Unscathed

First day back at work for the week went relatively unscathed. A lot of restrictions on products have been lifted. Toilet paper and hand sanitizer have gone from one to four, paper towels and s...

Finally saw some friends!

Work was absolutely insane yesterday, to the point where social-distancing was completely out the window. Even the manager on said he wondered if customers were being counted at the door. I was...

ANZAC Day

I can’t stop being amused by these memes LOL. I still can’t believe what he said yesterday actually happened. Oh well, natural selection and all that jazz, I guess. Let the weeds weed themsel...

Co-Vid update and jigsaw

That was another rough work-week. Despite us now having plenty of toilet paper, we had no eggs from Thursday through Sunday, so THAT was fun! And if I hadn’t noticed the count was wrong on my w...

Bestie's wedding day

It’s Moe and Ben’s wedding today! I’ve finished work and am at gym cisco haven’t been in like a week, and I have to be at the registry office at 3:45pm to be a witness. I spent all last night i...

Movie day

I went and saw ‘The Addams Family’ movie at the cinema today. You know, the animated one? It came out earlier in the month and I thought that was silly given it should have been out for Hallowe...

Xmas events galore (piccies)

Omg, I didn’t have time to write this past weekend. I took Saturday off to attend my extended-family Xmas party out at The Grange in Pittsworth where my grandmother lives, so I picked up the hir...

Birthday dinner 18+18

My birthday dinner went fairly well. Chris and Reece both RSVP’d ‘Yes’ to attending, but neither showed up, so that was a little disappointing, but I was surprised that Ryan and Cam both said the...

Long time friends

I went down the Gold Coast Tuesday night to see Brent. He reckons he moved in there in January, and I moved into my place in January too so that’d mean I haven’t seen him in 10 months. It certa...

Beijing Day 7

Omg I have so much to write about but am so tired! I don’t wanna forget it all though so will write what I can. Yesterday I figured out the subway system here. Man, it’s done well. 21+ differen...

Beijing - Day 6

Yesterday was another busy day being a tourist! I did Forbidden City. Wow, just wow. I only just made it there on time too. The last tickets sell at 4pm, and I was confused when I arrived. Ev...

Market day

Today was a trip to the (apparently famous 🤷) Silk Markets. Ryan took me there and we were picked up in a fancy-as-fuck car! I only wish I’d had time to film it. The doors opened upwards, put ...

Now I've got the hang of it

Yesterday I was braver and figured out how to cross the streets more confidently. I was hopeless on my first attempt the day prior. You know what gave me confidence? A dog. Yup. A freaking DO...
