I definitely overthink things

Electricity I actually find myself thinking ‘I should take the stairs, and not ‘waste’ electricity on the lift’. If I’m exiting the garage on foot, I’ll opt to use the manual personnel gate, not the beeper to open the vehicle gates. I start to wonder if other people think like this… Food waste Yesterday, I …

September Summary

A little later than I’d hoped to get this post out, but it’s better to keep note of what I did, even if not promptly! Culture The big ticket item here was making an effort to see the Archibald Prize at the Gallery of NSW, which I did a post about here.  Otherwise, I went …

August Summary

Culture In the month of August, I didn’t make it to any’cultural’ events (yesterday’s post was in Septemebr). I did put two book talks into my calendar, and then got analysis paralysis.  You can purchase an annual membership and then book talks are included.  I always want to ensure I get the value for money. …

July Summary

Culture Zero waste events – screening of the clean bin project with a great three person panel afterwards.  Also a waste reduction talk which was a little more homegrown.  I’m so thankful for a friend I play water polo with for suggesting these, and proud all my nattering about my ways over the years have …

June summary

The other day, my mobile phone recharged (yes, I’m on prepay) and I realised a month had flown by since i got back from Europe.  I spent a week or two after returning recovering from mild but lingering cold.  Work gobbled me up, however, these summary posts remind me, that’s not ALL that happened! Culture …

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 …

I’m still here

Yep, I’m still alive – as my few infrequent blog readers would know, as I pop in and comment on your blog. I’ve had a few months without internet, so that’s explains the dip in posting.  And I’ve moved house. Here’s hoping to more posts soon…

Checking in

Hi readers…! First I have a new laptop on trial from a friend.  It has a touch screen, and folds in half to be like a tablet.  It’s pretty cool, and annoying as I work out its quirks and work out how to make it work how I like. And, I’m back from three weeks …

Laptop loathing

So… My laptop is in disrepair.  It seems to have evidence that it was built in 2008.  It’s a ‘hand me down’ from my mother’s work.  She doesn’t work there anymore either. I think I put up with it, and my greenie, eco warrior-ness means I don’t like to say or think that I want …
