Another weekend brought on another weekend out of the city that is home, Auckland. Skipping out of work after a last minute fire drill, car pre loaded, we drove straight on to the already stalled motorway, and set off on our five and a half hour drive south. Sure, that’s a lengthy time, but that … More Wonderful weekend wanders
A year ago, one of Bradley’s closest pals from his uni days, popped the question to his Personal Penguin. After having lived with them both myself for ten months, I was super happy that they were making the official, totally official.

The call that I received was in relation to an orthopaedic appointment I had in November last year. After an MRI in June … More Ice Cube told me so.
A minions handful of weeks ago, the boy and I jumped on to our bargain bonanza flights to Wellington, for a weekend of non-Auckland surroundings.
Over this last month, I’ve totally seen the good ol’ traits of Sambo breaking through and staying put, and it’s made me smile somewhat. Did it take the resignation and offer of TWO jobs to give my vibe a growth spurt, or was it the new found tribe at work that boosted my vibes to … More Your vibe attracts your tribe, or did that tribe boost my vibe?
