Working from home – it can be done…if you’re not a jerk!

I’ve seen a lot of talk lately, as we’re coming up to the holidays, about working from home. This post is going to focus on IT workers because we can commute quite easily, no matter where we are. I’m personally all for it – I have a study of my own, with my computer and extra desk space for my… Read more »

Regular AD Maintenance & Checks

I was inspired to write this post based on a question posted on Reddit a little bit ago. While I was happy with my response (and that so many people agreed with me!) I figured it would benefit those who read my blog or go searching for this information and aren’t Reddit readers. I’ve also added in a few links,… 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 »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 7

Still in Trondheim – today was the more traditional museums 🙂 Started off with an exceedingly healthy breakfast of pancakes, maple syrup and profiteroles (very nom!) then a brief chill in the hotel room until it was time to head out, as the cathedral didn’t open until 11. Short walk to the cathedral, took some photos outside (as you can’t… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 6

Headed south to Umea to spend the night  – long, long drive. After filling up, didn’t stop again until we had lunch at a little pizza place about 2 hours out of Umea. Pulled pork pizza – it was AWESOME. Just wish I knew where it was so I could share it with you all! Going south we watched the… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 5

Got a good sleep then another awesome breakfast at Santa’s Village – no, I didn’t have the waffles 😛 Quick Facebook call to my Mum during breakfast – and a berating for lack of photos. Sheesh, be patient, you can wait ’til we’re home…or until we’re somewhere with a net connection that lets us do photo uploads at quicker than… Read more »

Scandinavian Awesomeness – Part 4

Early breakfast before checking out – seriously loved the huge tea cups. Also took my last antibiotic (yay!) so no more tablets through out the day – leg is looking way better! Packed up and checked out, saying goodbye to Helsinki. So far our favourite major city. The long drive to Joensuu (5 hours) was spent listening to the new… Read more »
