Impressed by Plumbers

Being an electrician, I work very closely to a range of different people in various trades and levels of expertise. A normal day on site would have me liaise with every person whose job impacts mine, or mine theirs. Depending on the day, this could be anywhere between five to twenty people. The blokes I …

Solar Salesman

When you’ve been a travelling green crusader as long as I have, you get pretty good at the tricks. I try to get up at 6 am, take some time to eat a good breakfast and exercise. I’m out the door by 7:30. I manage to catch a few people before they rush off to …

Ultimate Mechanic Additions

People always talk about flying cars when mentioning unfulfilled promises of the ‘future’. Well, I’m still waiting for cyborgs.  To be fair, this one is coming…really, really slowly. Some people have mechanical arms or legs with limited functions, and there are ones that scrape in my technicality, like artificial organs or pacemakers. But until you …

The Christmas-Mobile

All I wanted was to spread some holiday cheer. If I’d known it was going to hit my wallet so hard, I wouldn’t have done it. Bringing jolliness to children is worth a lot to me, but man, not that much. There’s a lot of costs, it turns out, to running a Christmas-mobile. The tinsel …

Admiring the boat

I love the new snapper racks, I had them installed on the boat last night. I get so many compliments about them, everyone seems impressed. Contrary to popular belief, I’m not a tyrant of the seas. I don’t try to make myself out as some tough guy, or bad guy in anyway. I’m a sailor …

Spinning Signs

Oh man, I just got the best news ever. Our office is totally private now. I’ve been waiting months for this day. I was almost starting to think it wouldn’t happen. I can’t believe it: we’ve finally got window tinting. Now I can do my training in total privacy. People won’t come to the window, …

Disaster Wedding

My wedding was a disaster! I hardly know where to begin. Almost everything went wrong. Everyone showed up late, the music was hijacked by my little brother, the catering service almost forgot about our order, and somebody replaced all the wine with apple juice! The only thing that came through for me was Melbourne’s best …

Car Park Maze

Hey everyone, Joshua here. I’m coming to you live from a bit of a predicament. I’m simultaneously lost and stuck, and I don’t know what to do about it. This car park is a maze. Like seriously, I’m lost.  I’m writing this post after my fifth attempt at finding the exit. I’ve parked next to …

‘Tis the Seasons

I used to think that gardening meant either perfectly executing a horticultural vision to the letter, using some kind of magic ‘green thumb’ with an error rate of zero, or else haphazardly hacking away at whatever cropped up and hoping for the best. That might sound ridiculous, but I simply didn’t understand that there’s a …

Resolve This

Is it too early for declaring new years’ resolutions? Surely not. Some might argue that we need to get done with Christmas before we can move onto that kettle of fish, but I’m a believer in taking commitments for a no-obligation test drive. Regardless, my 2020 resolution is incoming below.   First up: I’m going …
