My First Home

Today has been pretty stressful, I have to admit. I didn’t think moving into my first home would take such a toll, but it really hasn’t been the walk in the park I expected. I thought it would be as simple as expressing interest, making an offer and moving in. It’s laughable how wrong I …

Rushed Car Service

I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I live up to the stereotype that everyone Australian holds about Melbournians. I am footy-mad, love going to the pub on a Saturday night and have a girlfriend who is obsessed with the fact that we live in the shopping capital of Australia. So let me set the scene here. …

Beach House Windows

I am so fortunate to have just bought a property right near the beach. I’ve always lived a decent drive away from the water, but now I own a home that has the beach at my front door. I want to get the renovations done as soon as possible so that I can move in …

Custom Timber Crib

My sister is having her first baby in six months, which means I’m going to be an uncle! I’m so excited. I never want kids of my own, but I’m more than happy to give her children all the love and affection that I have in me. The beauty of it is, I can be …

People and Places

My friends and I got a bit sick of Goblins and Grottos, so we’re trying a new roleplaying game. This one is called People and Places, and it’s basically a real-life simulator. There’s a similar video game called Alternate Life, but I like this RPG more because you have complete freedom. My character is a …

Snappy Customer

I thought driving was supposed to be fun. Why else would everyone go through all the cost, effort and bureaucratic rigmarole of getting a license? Sure, people have to get places, but that’s what public transport is for. Driving is for getting around while also having a good time… isn’t it? Please tell me that …

Window Con

I’m so excited! I’ve been waiting for this day for three years now. January 23, 2020. Some people know it as Thursday. I know it as the day of Window Con. A convention all about windows that happens once every three years. It’s so much fun. 2017 was my first ever Window Con, and I …

Boats Aren’t Real

People always say the world is getting smaller, and I think that’s a real shame. We used to have such a desire for adventure and discovery as a species, but it just seems to have gone away. Humanity went to the moon, and then we kind of just gave up, decided there wasn’t anything else …

Can’t Get Hardware

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve had to go to the hardware store this month, I’d have exactly one dollar. Now, if I had a dollar for every time I’ve tried to go to the hardware store this month, I’d have… more than that. Significantly more. I’ve been meaning to head down …

Installing Hyperbarics?

I can’t believe they’re getting us to install hyperbaric chambers in our offices. This season of Australia’s Next Top Office has honestly gone off the rails. We haven’t done anything actually relating to offices when you think about it. They got us to build kitchens, bathrooms and laundries (what kind of office has a laundry …
