Color me brown – nipple tattoo news

Color me brown – nipple tattoo news

Today is a momentous day.   First because it’s the 2012 Oscars.  Second, because we have the muppet showdown (otherwise known as the Australian labor party leadership challenge/spill) and finally – and obviously most importantly –  because I am getting my nipple tattoo’s done. My big dream for today is that once this final cosmetic procedure … Continue reading

NBCF speech – draft one

Feedback welcome, this is the draft for next weeks inaugural NBCF speech!  It’s a long one, I’m warning you. I have 10-15 minutes so will practice on the weekend and work out how much I need to edit out! Thankfully I was born in 1971.    And whilst I hate admitting my old age (I’m sure … Continue reading

The week that was

The week that was

I’ve had a thoroughly good week.  So much action on the home front! Am making some significant head way on the organising myself to move half way around the world project, it’s quite unbelievable.  Add to that I’ve trained every day for 7 days running (or swimming or biking) and well let’s face it I’m … Continue reading

Doing it anyway!

I don’t need a man to go and do a triathlon with, instead I now have a trusty girl friend along as my support crew.   Now back to sh*tting bricks again due to limited amounted of training of late.  Oh well, intending to treat it more like a training session and do it easy.   My … Continue reading

This morning I held up my end of the deal and sent through a number of options.  Then I waited.  And waited. And waited. Finally … Continue reading

In the midst of bedlam, some very good news

Unbelievably, my emotionally charged week continued to throw up further challenges. With my close family all away on holidays (my brother, wife and kids are also off), when the next drama struck, it was on my shoulders again…. As I’ve mentioned on here before, my father is an alcoholic.  And before you say you think … Continue reading

Cancel the alarm bells

I do not have lymphoedema.  In fact, according to the very fancy machine at the specialists, my right arm is a mere 1.3% bigger than my left.  Which is actually on the small side when you consider that I’m right handed (so my muscles would favor that side). After asking me a number of questions, … Continue reading

One year on…

Christmas.  A time of family, friends and celebration.  And a time of reflection. So I guess it’s natural that I find myself often thinking about this time last year.  I can’t seem to help it, the memories just keep on rolling.  Reminders have abounded as I’ve moved through the last week or so towards the … Continue reading
