This post has been a week in the making, but it is now ready to publish. Last weekend, Aotearoa held their general election. National won with an overwhelming majority. And I lost the plot. I want to start this post with an apology – because I also want to give some context to some of […]

Update: I have been using this system since writing this post back in April and it is working really well.

Recently, I realised that my life had descended into chaos. I was working in my first ‘proper’ full time job since leaving university, and I found myself becoming overwhelmed with all of the things that I had to do.

An Epic Tale Does this video ring true with you? I know that when I first saw this DVD series, I was quite captivated by the concept. Life as a story? It sounded intriguing, and yet, remarkably simple at the same time.

Posted on 10 Sep 2011 in Blog, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Last weekend my wife and I were lucky enough to visit Tiritiri Matangi thanks to a GrabOne voucher. I had heard a lot about “Tiri” but never been so was very keen. During the ferry trip there, we came across a pod of dolphins – there must have been around 20 to 30 of them […]
