May Summary

Culture: There was bucket loads of culture this month, given I spent two weeks in four other countries!  I won’t reiterate what’s in countless posts (you can click on the travel category on the right to get them all in one place, or select a country). Films on the plane Passengers Fences Collateral Beauty Wanted …

April Summary

Culture: Quite unexpectedly, I attended a concert in April.  A fantastic young artist, Vera Blue, was sold out, but the night of her concert, I got an email for last minute tickets for $35! I did not hesitate and bought two tickets and invited a friend from work (who’d coincidently been at the last concert …

Humming Puppy Yoga

So a very dear friend and blog reader gave me a great birthday gift – she named it an Advent calendar and the concept is to do different ‘bucket list experiences’ each month together.  We started with my birthday dinner at Momofuku, and then things slowed down!  Of course, I have things I want to …

Culture & 2017 – starting with ArtExpress

Entering the new year, the only brainwave I had was to attempt to get more cultural experiences.  Things like concerts, art shows and sculpture walks.  Many of these things, I’ve been to some years, and not others.  Like 2016 – I hardly managed to do any of these, so by listing them and calling them …

A new car…

I’ve never owned a car outright, as long time readers might recall from this post. That’s all about to change! I have decided at the ripe old age of 31, that it’s time to buy my very own car.  It due to some frustrations by the limitations of work’s car – I can only drive …

Gliding (fixed wing…)

So like a plane, except, extra long wings so that you can cut the engine and glide.  The BF got this as a Christmas gift, so it made my 2016 Goals, and struck something off the bucket list. That’s my pilot tinkering   I was pretty darn excited: Here’s the inside: Let me show you …

Weight loss update

Let’s start by saying – I’m envious of Dar’s fitness post today. Driving home, I thought ‘if she can do it (and she’s in a place with all that snow, and she is older than me) then what’s my excuse?’.  So I set up my laptop, and still channeling Dar – I put on her …

2016 Goals

What would I like to achieve in the next year? Health I will get (and stay) below 70kg.  I’m currently 78.7kg.  I plan to reward myself as a help to motivate me.  I do need to ‘plan’ around all my excuses, so perhaps that’s tomorrow’ post.  I would like to have toned upper arms and a …
