Lego Update – July 2015

      3 Comments on Lego Update – July 2015

So I realise that the last time I did a Lego update was back in April last year. That’s a long time and a heap has changed. Saddest thing – I’ve had to pack up a whole heap. I have five giant rolling storage boxes filled with all the Lego I’ve taken apart. I dismantled all my Creator (minus the… Read more »

Fun and games with an insurance company…

The following details the dealings I’ve had with AAMI and outline the background of what occurred. The following is the correspondence (with some slight omissions to protect names/contact details) that I have sent to/received from both AAMI and the Financial Ombudsman Service regarding what had happened and just how many times they’ve screwed up over the last three months, as well as my… Read more »

The story behind the name…

      2 Comments on The story behind the name…

Not surprisingly, my online nickname/handle gets brought up fairly often – especially if I have to give my email address to someone over the phone – and I regularly get asked how I ended up with it. It’s an amusing, albeit not long, story and it’s stuck with me – because it was not only the start of my online… Read more »

30 before 30 – a look back

      No Comments on 30 before 30 – a look back

So. That’s it. I’ve hit 30. My life is over! Only kidding. It does mean that my “30-before-30” is over. So this is a quick recap of what I’ve managed to get done…and what I didn’t quite manage.   1. Get healthy – STARTED! I’d like to say I’ve done this, but I think this is an ongoing “stay healthy”. My… Read more »

“For a woman, you’re very opinionated…”

Very *very* short blog post, but seeing the response I received from Twitter (and for me, 10+ retweets/favourites is a lot, I don’t post things that are that interesting!), I figured I would share this. My mum tagged me in a photo on Facebook this morning. She said it was fitting for me and I most definitely agree: I honestly think… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – the final chapter

Chilled in the room for a while, even managed a nap, as well as a spa bath & shower before heading out to get some food – ended up at a local pizza joint (we do love out pizza here!) and had some food there. Didn’t really feel like partying hard, so back to the hotel for a quiet night… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 10

Wow. Part 10. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but we’ve hit 3 weeks today – 3 weeks ago, we left Brisbane. Anyway, back to the timeline 😛 Did a bit of wandering in Malmo, saw some of their amazing buildings (that’s one thing that every country we’ve visited has over Australia – preservation of a very long… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 9

Dinner in the room was a great idea – and the pizza was really good. Their small is interesting though – think they’ve been taking lessons from the Americans. Neither of us could get through our own “small” pizzas (which were each 8 slices!). Early sleep, as both of us hadn’t had much water and were dehydrated….which wasn’t a good… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 8

After checking in to Flamsbrygga, it was time for dinner – ate at the local Viking restaurant, which had amazing food and even better service 🙂 Ended the night with a white Russian for dessert! Back to hotel room to sleep, not really achieved due to rowdy bunch next door who kept partying through to 2am -.- Not super impressed… Read more »
