  1. Sore Back

    Obviously I’m getting older and shamefully lazier. I have been cycling less and less, I barely run anymore. Since starting nursing in 2015 I have put on 12kg. I am angry and frustrated at myself because I know better. I know muscles start to waste when we get older …

  2. Swimming and Walking

    My Mum sent me this postcard after she had walked across Spain. It is an illustration from a Russian Fairy story, “Feather Of Finist Falcon” by Ivan Bilibin.

  8. Bantam Killer

    Precious time off work. The Boys out for a ride with me.

    New Car?

    There’s this old ute near my place. It has been well used, like many of the cars out here. It’s like the glam version of my ute.
