Being the professional that I am, I just abandoned the blog for a few days while I wandered the streets of Sydney. I used to do it a lot more often during my pre-mortgage days and my pre-crap-earnings days, but now I’m forced to make this one little muddied puddle as interesting as I can. So I really appreciate the rare moments where I do escape, even if it’s just down to Sydney which is about an hour and a half drive.

Posting has been a little light lately as I took off for some city time in Sydney. My excuse for going down to Sydney was to see PJ Harvey at the Sydney Opera House, which was well worth the extra dollars I had to pay for tickets on eBay! (it was sold out so I took the risk with tickets on eBay).Continue Reading
