Aquarium 2.0

So I made a post back in July about upgrading the fish tank. The old tank was a 29L and the new one is 76L (a sizeable jump). There are fish in there- they’re just a bit hard to spot. 😅 There’s Hoover the sucking catfish (Chinese algae eater), Gary […]

What season is it again? 😅

So, apparently it’s supposed to be late spring- soon to be early summer… But this is Victoria we’re talking about, so between the sub zero temperatures last week, the pelting rain and severe winds, then the 25+ degree sunshine that followed… I’m not entirely sure what season it’s supposed to […]

Admin work is hard

Apologies for the prolonged absence! I just saw that my last post was 21 days ago. 😳 It’s been a busy few weeks since, so I hadn’t actually felt like typing anything until now. What’s been happening since? Well, for one thing, the state opened up, so I’ve been spending […]

Yet another camping post 🏕

We went camping again! As most of the state celebrated coming out of lockdown by catching up with family and friends, we decided instead to spend the weekend isolating ourselves in the middle of nowhere. 😂 We actually booked the site well and truly before the easing of restrictions were […]

Late spring garden update 2021

Gyoza time again

Well- we’re still in lockdown, and I’m still on annual leave. 🥳 Which means it’s time to do some culinary experimentation!! And do other hobby activities, like editing that story I was writing back in June last year… or going for a walk… And enjoying the earth rumble beneath me- […]

Things that keep me up at night

I work in Melbourne (for the most part), as an essential worker- in the healthcare/ medical science field. Given I’ve currently returned to my regional Victorian hometown, I drive my car to and from on the days that I work. It’s a bit of a drive, sure, but it’s relatively […]

Spring 2021 garden update 🌱

Why hello there 🦎 We actually got some warm weather for the first week of September/spring, so we got to see some wee lizards poking their heads out from the garden beds. Unfortunately we’ll be back to cold, wet and somewhat miserable (I say somewhat, because I actually like rain) […]
