Working shifts comes with pro’s and con’s like any working pattern. However, when your contract states you must work just two weekend shifts in a calendar month, it appears that the pro’s do in fact outweigh the con’s. Especially when I rostered myself off for a weekend that just so happened to remind the people … More (Sugar + exercise = weekend) + The Mount = a GREAT weekend
I received a call last week, that came a lot sooner than I thought it would. Or rather, it reminded me that 2018 is shooting past and we’re almost in August already. 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.

I’m sure you’re aware the travel trips have subsided over the years, yeah, that’s adulting for you. You’ll also be aware, if I could, I’d be a full time travelling gypsy and jetting around non stop. Thanks to Air New Zealand a wee while back, I snapped up some super cheap flights down to a … More Out with the old, in with the New, Plymouth
Four years ago today, like actually today, I skipped off the delightful plane and nervously made my way through the airport. Don’t go thinking I was nervous because I had drugs on my person, that wasn’t the case, and no, they weren’t in my luggage either, I was nervous because it was my last chance … More Anniversary happy.
Happy New Year! I feel like staring a new post with “it’s been a while since my last post” is a bit cliché, but also pretty darn common for myself, oopsies. Oh well, let’s get over that and continue with this post shall we now. Alert alert, it’s a bit of a deep one, oh … More Melting down to mould into a new year.
With it being two weeks since I returned from the tropical paradise of the Cook Island, and to my eyes, the tan working its way down the 50 Shades of Brown scale (“you’re so tanned Sam”, say my colleagues, but what do they know. I need me my freckles!!), I thought it an ideal time … More Rarotonga: too beautiful for even my word quota.
