And another thing…

Just when you thought it was safe to come back..

MORE PHOTOS!

I know.  It’s a bit of a cheek really, as I already had all these shots ready to go last week, but held them back a I didn’t want that last post to be endlessly massive.

But I care not one jot, you all love me anyway, right? Read More

Now, where were we..?

Hello, dear readers!  1000 apologies for the slight hiatus but I’ve been sick.  Stupid winter flu bugs have kept me from doing a lot for the last month.

I even missed a day of work and as I only get paid for what I work (no sick leave for us company directors) that’s a pretty big deal.  For me to sacrifice that amount of money to the flu god, it was pretty bad.  That’s kind a shit buys a lot of wine.

Anyways, its not all been doom and gloom, I have managed to ride my bike a lot, even though it’s suddenly turned very cold.

0.7C at 6:45am kinda cold.  Yes, I know northern hemisphere dwellers would say ‘thats not cold, if you want cold, try riding in the snow yer great southern shandy drinking poof’

Yeah, no.  I’ve done that, it’s not fun.  Plus it doesn’t snow here.

tiny update

Its been a crap couple of weeks for getting out and about and taking photos cos I’ve been sick.

Yes, the dreaded man-flu.

You know it’s bad when a 4 day weekend with gorgeous 30C sunny days could not even tempt me outside, and then the following week I had to have a day off work.   When you’re paid by the day and don’t get sick leave, this is a very big deal.

Of planets, comets and motorbikes

No, I haven’t been riding to the stars, taking mind altering hallucinogenic drugs or doing the Sunday crossword!

My week (or rather slightly more than a week, I’m cheating slightly here, I needed to save a few pics from a couple of weeks back to make this work…) has been pretty full of cool things.

But most especially its been full of planets, comets and motorbikes. Read More

All work and no play

As the saying goes – all work and no play makes Charlie a dull boy.

I have been doing some fun stuff, but:

a. Its been too hot (no really – 40C+ – ugh)
b. I’ve been too lazy (see a)
c. I’ve been busy with other not so interesting stuff.

Anyway, if I have anyone left still reading this blog – here’s some words and pictures from the last month! Read More

Greetings from the other side

Happy New Year, dear internet.

Yes, I know I’m about a month late, I’ve been busy, ok! :p

So, what has been going on in my world that’s meant a 6 week hiatus?  One word

Work.

Christmas Eve ride

Hello and Happy Christmas!

It never feels like Christmas;  As someone who grew up in northern hemisphere, Christmas should be cold and snowy.  Ok, we are talking England – grey and rainy.   So when it’s wall to wall sunshine and the temperatures are in the mid to high 30’s C – it just doesn’t feel Christmasy.    It is, however, perfect weather for chilling out and enjoying the time off.

So I went for a ride with Pete.. Read More

Sunday blast

My friend Pete had been planning a Sunday ride out on the bike with his Dad and I was invited along.  The plan was to ride up to the hills through Serpentine and Jarrahdale and then into Pinjarra and onto Mandurah for a late breakfast.

The sun was shining, it was already warm out, Jay was still in bed and little ‘un was fast asleep when I set out at 8:30am on the little red Ninja 250 to meet up at Pete’s house. Read More

Fremantle

I had to go to see an accountant in Claremont (a nice posh suburb of Perth) to discuss options to set up a company for me start a sole trader consultant business.   Even though it was still pretty windy and there was a threat of rain, I took the bike (any excuse).

I had a poke around the port area of Fremantle on the way home. Read More

Peaches

This isn’t really about peaches, but more about a drive in to the country, which is kinda reminded me of a line from a song by rock band Presidents of the USA called ‘Peaches’

‘A move into the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches…’

Well, I didn’t even see a single peach, but I did take a load of photos of rural Australia, which is only a stone’s throw from suburbia where I live. Read More
