Table Domination

It’s been my dream for the last few years to build a table. Not just any table. The greatest table that has ever been made. It will be the Swiss Army Knife of tables. It will be custom made for games of my favourite tabletop RPG, Castles and Creatures. It will be convertible into a …

The Reluctant Pirate

Some kids are obsessed with space, others dinosaurs. My brother, Jimmy, was obsessed with pirates. His idea of a pirate was the cartoon kind, where they spend days searching for buried treasure, talking to parrots and fighting evil pirates until one of them is knocked overboard but miraculously unhurt.  You couldn’t imagine his excitement when …

Driving Me Mad

Driving from Sydney to Cairns for Christmas might sound a bit crazy, but… yeah, you’re right, it is crazy. So why do I do every year, without fail? I guess it’s because I have a screw loose, which isn’t surprising given the family that awaits me up in the sunshine state. They’re all off their …

Barn Dance

It’s just as I feared: Sonia wants a ‘rustic’ wedding. I was hoping against hope that it wouldn’t come to this, but here I am, faced with the task of telling her that I don’t want to wear suspenders and grow a manicured lumberjack beard. I don’t want our friend’s dog to be the ringbearer, …

Berry Successful

You might think there wouldn’t be much money in being a berry blogger, and you’d be… well, not entirely wrong. But there is some money in it, enough to keep me going, and the experience itself is so rewarding that it somehow pans out.  What is a berry blogger, you ask? I settled on that …

Influential

Some might say I’m a professional traveller. That’s not technically true, because I don’t make money from travelling – quite the opposite, in fact. I’m an influencer by trade, and the travelling is more like part of my job than the job itself. Just as some people send emails or answer phones as part of …

Now, Aluminium Parties

There’s always room for more product marketing in my life. I might have to reschedule a few sales parties, but the more companies I sign up to, the better my chances of hitting it big and earning $4657 a month. This will allow me to have financial freedom and set my own hours while all …

Screaming Rhinos

Yes, house hunting is hard. Are you doing it on your own, though, or perhaps with your significant other? If so, count yourself lucky, because house hunting with kids is… how can I describe it? Imagine a stampede of knee-high rhinos running around like they’ve just downed a triple espresso apiece, and you’re responsible for …

The Parade

Angry antlers flail Christmas cheer turns dark with rage Rudolph, drop the mic! Look, I compose haikus to help me get through life’s darker moments. We’re still a good way off Christmas, thankfully, but I just know that they’re going to try the Christmas parade again, and it’s going to be a disaster. Again.  There …

What You Wish For…

Alright, so I think what we’ve learned over the past couple of months is that magic in this realm just doesn’t work as well as it does back where I’m from. I tried to abide by the code, I really did, but three whole days of taking my shoes on and off without magic drove …
