Moe's b'day

Another work-week over with and again it was busy as fuck, this time due to the Grand Final being played a few suburbs over. It got moved here due to the Covid outbreaks down south. I saw my si...

Double-jabbed

I’m double-vaxxed. Finally. Man, that was an effort. I ended up walking in for my second one. Fuck awaiting another email from QLDHealth. Now that my state finally has enough Pfizer supply, ...

Beachy

I went to the Gold Coast yesterday to catch up with Brent for lunch. It was initially going to be Tuesday night but he asked to change it, which suited me better anyway as it meant Brandè could ...

Bye Ma

My last surviving grandparent, Melba (affectionately known as Ma) passed away last night at 8:10pm. Dad’s mother. She was 91yo. I’ll miss her. I was at work when I got the relayed message that...

Lot on

Ma (my grandma) had a massive bleed last night and we didn’t think she was going to make it through the night. However, she surprised us and I smiled seeing a message from mum saying ‘Ma is stil...

Sunny Coast

I finally had my beach-day I’ve been wanting for about two months! It was a gorgeous day yesterday so I decided to jump on the train and head to the Sunshine Coast. Takes about 2.5hrs to get th...

Peter's b'day dinner

I’ve been having a few depressive-days, which hasn’t been fun. Thankfully I’ve learned over the years that a sleep generally keeps it at bay and I feel better in the morning, like now. Yesterda...

Final goodbye

Well another trip to the parents and back is done and dusted for Easter. My sister arrived right after I did. Mum said my older brother wasn’t coming as “Something came up” with no other detail...

Heeeeere we go again?

I may be in lockdown again soon. We had a local postiive CoVid case yesterday and the list of venues was posted. A low risk one was the shopping complex near my home. Not too worried, as I was...

It's gone!

The sofa has gone! I had to take 7 hours off work on Friday because I didn’t DARE get it rescheduled, knowing what this freight company have been like. My rescheduled pickup from Thursday aftern...

Yeah no 😷

I’m doing my first gym “workout” in a mask. I feel it’ll be easier just to not gym until this stupid restriction ends. Some people can do it, but it’s not for me. I already have to wear it at ...

Onslaught

I was on my first break at work when I got the message from Brande’ saying Brisbane was going into lockdown for 3 days. Uh oh. I braced myself. I went back inside and asked some of my workmate...

x-tended xmas

I’ve been up since 2-fucking-AM, lolz. I fell asleep last night around 8:30pm so I’m not too surprised. The sun is gradually rising now, and what a surprise, it’s still raining. This will be d...

Goldy (1)

Very very lazy so far. Managed to get sunburned already, even though it’s been overcast all day ergh. So my birthday is gonna be fun tomorrow, in pain! It could be worse I guess. I just hate ...

One of those days

I’m not going to write long. I’m in bed and just want to sleep to forget today. I just watched the Queensland election result and it’s a returned Labor government for the next 4 years. That wi...

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...
