34) Mount Kayak

So we have recently made the decision to stay in New Zealand permanently and become actual grown ups at last! That means it’s time to make some changes. One of these changes is our apartment, I no longer view it as a temporary stop over, it’s now a more permanent home in my mind so…

33) Adam And Eve Ate The Nutella

Now that I’m quickly approaching my late 20’s my metabolism really isn’t what it used to be. This is now what I must do to myself in the name of being healthy! A few days ago I came to the horrifying realisation that there was no chocolate in the house. As I happened to be…

32) Sausage Hands And Helicopters

I have travelled, I have lived in crowded hostels and cockroach infested apartments, I have driven the west coast of Australia and lived in a van for 3 weeks. All of these experiences led me to believe that a night of camping would be fantastic fun. Just me and Gerry, camping by the lake, drinking…

31) Listen To Your Imaginary Mother!

As I begin my descent into my late 20’s I find myself full of wisdom that I feel the need to impart onto another generation, unfortunately my guinea pig has no interest so this is my advice to my imaginary future daughter instead (who, no offence, I will hopefully not be having for a very…

29) Catch up

Random stories over the last few weeks. I was in our bathroom earlier when I noticed a bug crawling along the floor, I quickly scooped him up in a piece of tissue paper and threw him in the toilet. I flushed him down the toilet but when the flushing stopped, all the tissue was gone…

28) Mrs. Father Time

After doing a load of laundry last night I was putting the newly clean bed sheet back on the bed when I noticed that it was very wrinkly. I suddenly thought to myself hmmm maybe I should iron it…. I was so surprised that I had to stop what I was doing immediately and go…

27) Pee Stains and Vet Bills

Today, on my day off, I got up at that time of the morning reserved for airport trips, fitness fanatics and hungover vomiting. I then chose my outfit in the knowledge that there was a 98% chance of me getting covered in pee in the next few hours. Yes it was time for the vet. …

26) Dear Tiny Dent

Today I was out to lunch when a complete stranger made a really rude comment to me for absolutely no reason, when I made a comment back immediately giving as good as I got, they heard my accent and said “oh you’re Irish, I should have guessed”. The feeling that came over me was one…

25) How To Train Your Human

Last year for Christmas Gerry surprised me with a fat little guinea pig. Regardless of our attempts to civilise her over the last year, here are the life lessons that she has done her best to teach us. 1) The Hoover is the devil himself, hide and growl and he will eventually go away. 2)…
